Super EPA - NSF Certified for Sport
Thorne's Super EPA is NSF Certified for Sport®. The two most important omega-3 fatty acids from fish – EPA and DHA – are beneficial for the cardiovascular system.* These two fatty acids support good circulation by promoting healthy blood vessels, enhancing blood flow by optimizing vascular endothelial function, and maintaining already normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels.* They also support healthy brain function, cognition, and mood.* Thorne's Super EPA, a best-selling product for more than two decades, provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available. Molecular distillation is utilized to ensure the removal of cholesterol and contaminants from the raw ingredients, including PCBs and heavy metals. Super EPA is NSF Certified for Sport®.
Omega-3 fatty acids are categorized as essential fatty acids because humans must obtain them from food or supplementation; i.e., they can't be made from other substances in the body. EPA and DHA are important throughout adulthood, as well as during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development.* Dietary supplementation with DHA and EPA has proven beneficial for a number of the known higher mental functions.*
Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.

The vast majority of research showing the beneficial effects of supplemental fish oils on human health has been performed on the ethyl ester form. There is no significant difference in absorption between the two forms of fish oil when they are taken with a fat-containing meal. The ethyl ester form is more concentrated in essential fatty acids (EFAs) by volume; therefore, the ethyl ester form provides significantly more EPA and DHA per serving/capsule.
This product is contraindicated in an individual with a history of hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
