Mega EPA/DHA from Fish oil has been shown to increase “good” HDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides (or blood fats), reduce blood pressure, prevent plaques from forming in arteries, and stave off hardening of the arteries. For all these reasons, experts believe fish oil may support the health of your heart. It also improves brain function and reduces inflammation. This product is enteric coated so it won't release until it reaches the lower GI. That means no "fishy burps".
