Swedish researchers observed that, although Eskimos consume large amounts of fat, they have a relatively low incidence of the diseases associated with high fat diets. Eskimo-3 provides valuable doses of stable omega-3 fatty acids EPA&DHA, which are thought to be partly responsible for this phenomenon. Omega-3 fatty acids help to maintain a healthy circulation, supple joints and healthy skin Fish oils are required to help make anti-inflammatory prostaglandins (hormone-like chemicals) A recent survey A recent survey by the Food Safety by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland examined a range of popular European fish oil capsules for the presence of dioxins. Alarmingly, one of the products tested showed the dioxin level to be five times the maximum limit. Eskimo-3 stable fish oil was found to have the lowest levels of contaminants, which included dioxins and dioxin-like PCB's. Concentration of heavy metal contaminants such as cadmium and mercury was below detection levels in Eskimo-3. Caution: Not recommended for haemophiliacs.
