THE ALPHA OF
While several fish oils provide a decent amount of EPA, few omega-3 product comes close to delivering as much DHA per serving as Omega JYM.* That’s unfortunate since DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is a critical omega-3 fat. In fact, the proper dose of DHA–in conjunction with EPA–is essential if you want to reap any of the amazing benefits omega-3 fats can deliver.*
Omega-3 fats may help reduce your risk of coronary heart disease when adding regular exercise.* They also support healthy brain and joint function.* But for those who train, nothing is more exciting than current research suggesting fish oil may help spur muscle growth and support fat loss–when the proper dose of DHA is supplied, that is. That proper dose appears to be 1500 mg of DHA per day with an equivalent dose of EPA, or eicosapentaenoic acid.*
The Down-low on DHA
The problem with most fish oil and omega-3 products on the market today is that they grossly underdose DHA, or they keep the dose of DHA proprietary so you don’t know how much you’re getting. Omega-3 supplements that don’t list the dose of DHA are problematic because you never know if you’re getting enough of this critical omega-3 fat. Taking an omega-3 supplement that provides a low dose of DHA means that you have to take a handful of capsules to get the proper daily dose.
For example, if a fish oil capsule only delivers 150 mg of DHA, you would need to swallow 10 capsules per day, every day. That’s not only a hassle, but it means that you’re ingesting an extra 10-12 grams of fat per day, just to get the 1.5 grams (1500 mg) of DHA you really want. Many fish oil/omega-3 products on the market actually require you to consume 12-15 capsules per day to get 1500 mg of DHA!
