• HANK & BRIAN'S™ ESSENTIAL FATS PLUS E contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (important essential omega-3 fatty acids), gamma linolenic acid (GLA) (an important essential omega-6 fatty acid), and mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols (Vitamin E).
• The EPA and DHA are in the form of triglycerides derived from marine lipids (using patented flash molecular distillation) and the GLA is from cold-pressed borage seed oil. The mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols derive from rice bran oil, and are included in the softgel capsules for antioxidant protection of the polyunsaturated oils.
• Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are known to play important roles in the formation of prostaglandins. The prostaglandins are important cellular regulators controlling inflammatory processes and pain in the body.
• EPA and DHA may be helpful in supporting healthy cardiovascular function, normal blood pressure, healthy joints, healthy skin, normal blood sugar regulation, normal cellular metabolism, and healthy kidneys.
• GLA may be useful in supporting healthy joints. While they are powerful independently, research has indicated that in a combined formula EPA, DHA, and GLA can have even greater benefits.
• Because these fatty acids have many double bonds that are prone to oxidation, Vitamin E is included in the forms of mixed tocotrienols and tocopherols. In addition, these forms of Vitamin E have been shown to support healthy blood vessels, enhance blood flow, protect serum lipids from oxidation (including LDL and HDL), trap harmful nitrogenous radicals, act as anti-proliferative agents, and provide powerful oxidative defense for the skin.
• Every batch of fish oil is tested and guaranteed to contain insignificant levels of heavy metals, PCBs, pesticides, and other organic chemical contaminants.
