Essential fatty Acids have many important roles, both working together and separately in numerous ways. EPA is important functionally for producing prostaglandins, immune function, and as an anti-inflammatory, while DHA is important for cell structures, normal brain and nerve function, and your eyes. A careful balance between the two is critical to ensure we absorb and utilize them appropriately.
Wild Omega 3 uses fish from the north Atlantic (Sardine, Mackerel, Anchovy), refined and concentrated to provide 18% EPA, 12% DHA, and 3.6% DPA, and tested to ensure that the final product contains no heavy metals and only the purest Omega-3 oils.
Good catch! Most of us know that the Omega 3 fat found in fish is especially good for us. But how many of us get enough?
Even though people in Canada and the US now take fish oil supplements more than multivitamins (according to Consumerlab.com research), we still don’t get enough.
Fish are one of the most unassuming creatures on Earth, yet they offer benefits of a powerhouse food. It may be because we began by the sea several millennia ago that fish are vital to human health. Even today, over 75% of the world’s population lives within 150 kilometres of the ocean, and about one billion people rely on fish as their primary protein source.
Enerex Wild Omega 3 contains a blend of wild-caught Anchovy, Mackerel and Sardine fish body oil in each 1000 mg softgel capsule. It provides 180 mg Omega 3 EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and 120 mg Omega 3 DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid).
Omega 3 fatty acids, and specifically those called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish, are crucial for almost every area of the body.
Enerex Wild Omega 3:
Heart: Eating oily fish twice per week or taking 1000 to 3000 mg of Wild Omega 3 fish oil supplements daily may reduce your chances of heart disease and stroke. If you've recently survived a heart attack or had cardiac surgery, speak with your doctor about the latest research that finds taking fish oil is a safe way to reap heart-health benefits and does not interfere with medications. (JAMA 2001) (The Archives of Internal Medicine 2005)
Pain and inflammation: Omega 3 fatty acids have a very positive effect on your body’s inflammatory response that causes most pain and swelling. They help to regulate the inflammation cycle, and combat arachidonic acid, that promotes inflammation. Omega 3 DHA and EPA also help to prevent and relieve pain from arthritis, prostatitis, dermatitis, cystitis, and other “itis” (inflammatory) illnesses in addition to conditions including psoriasis and bronchial asthma.
Brain: According to clinical nutritionist Patrick Holford of the Brain Bio Centre in London, research shows that you can predict a country’s rate of depression and homicide by its seafood intake. Several studies prove its results are better than medications for mental illness.

The Enerex Advantage
Enerex Omega More’s Omega 6 oils offer over 16% of their fatty acids as important gamma linolenic acid (GLA), and the wild fish oils chosen – Anchovy, Mackerel and Sardine – in a 3:2 EPA to DHA ratio contain over 30% of their fatty acids as EPA, DHA and DPA.
How “pure” is fish oil?
Enerex chose Anchovies, Mackerel and Sardines because they are lower on the food chain and therefore have fewer contaminants. Enerex’s particular source uses pristine wild fish free of contaminants. It is minimally-processed without chemicals and cold-pressed immediately after harvesting. It is processed with solvent-free extraction and molecular distillation and is third-party tested to ensure it meets stringent government standards regarding toxins and heavy metals.
