How do omega-3s support health?

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) support a great many interrelated pathways. For example:

  • Cognition: Phospholipids in brain cells and neural tissue contain high amounts of DHA, making it a major building block of the brain and nervous system.
  • Mother and baby during pregnancy and lactation: Omega-3s are needed for proper fetal eye and brain development. For the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for pregnant/lactating women and children under 4, visit here.
  • The body’s natural inflammatory function: Especially as it relates to periodic challenges like consumption of a high-fat meal or strenuous activity
  • Cardiovascular health: In humans, supportive but not conclusive research has shown that EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Omega-3s support lipid profiles already within a normal range.

Omega-3s also provide antioxidant activity and support the immune system, emotional balance, and skin and hair health.*

How does vitamin D support health?

Vitamin D is required for a range of actions in the body. It regulates calcium absorption and bone metabolism, both of which are essential processes for maintaining strong bones and teeth. It supports immune function at the cellular level via vitamin D receptors that are active in many immune cells. It also supports healthy blood pressure levels already within a normal range by its regulation of the blood pressure hormone renin in the kidneys.*

What does vitamin E contribute to this formula?

Vitamin E helps protect cells against free radical damage, provides support to cell membranes, and helps protect against the oxidation of lipids within the body.*

Whole Food Nutrient Solutions

Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.

Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*

Notes:

Suggested Use: Two perles twice per day with meals, or as directed.
