Doctor’s Best Real Krill Enhanced with DHA & EPA Ingredients

Product Features

Doctor’s Best Real Krill Enhanced with DHA & EPA is based on the therapeutic properties of the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The product is advertised to contain no milk, egg, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, sugar, sweeteners, starch, salt, or preservatives. Omega-3 EPA and DHA are found in foods such as fish, shelfish, flaxseed oil, krill oil, etc. They are not naturally produced by the body, hence a daily intake from diet or dietary supplementation is essential to normal body function.

EPA and DHA have been associated to numerous benefits on the cardiovascular function, cognitive function and fetal development. Their effects are based on their blood thinning properties and on the fact that they are powerful antioxidants.

Past and present research focuses on demonstrating positive effects of EPA and DHA in alleviating symtoms of ADHD, depression, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. EPA more than DHA seems to have an influence on mood and behaviour. Preliminary evidence indicates that a combination of EPA and DHA may prove effective in ailments such as major depressive disorder (MDD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder. DHA is essential to normal eye and brain function. It is not uncommon for it to be prescribed to pregnant women, helping the fetus’ brain develop normally. Patients with mild cognitive impairment, a condition wich affects memory but not other cognitive functions, tend to have low levels of EPA and DHA.

Because Omega-3 fatty acids have blood thinning properties, there is concern that it may interact with anticoagulant medication or harm people suffering from blood thinning conditions. Side effects are rare and include nausea, vomiting and headache.

The manufacturer recommends taking 2-4 soft gels per day, depending on the purpose of the treatment. Consumers report being satisfied with the formula, although not many reviews are available online. No side effects or precautions are mentioned.

    Can you please tell me how much krill oil is in these capsules?

    What is the strength of these capsules? Are they 500 mg, 1000 mg or 1500 mg?

    Would appreciate your help,

    Debra.
