Derived from small wild fish (sardine, anchovy, mackerel)
With added vitamin E for freshness
When it comes to good fats, nothing can beat the health benefits of omega-3 essential fatty acids found in fish oil.
Your body doesn’t make essential fatty acids on its own so they must be obtained through food or supplement sources. Fish oil contains two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids – docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), essential for life-long cognitive function and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a mood regulator and essential for heart health that are found in the fatty tissues of cold water oily fish. Some nuts, seeds and vegetables oils contain alpha-linolenic acid which the body converts into DHA and EPA.
Your body needs a balanced amount of both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for maintaining good health, brain function, growth and development. However, a typical North American diet high in fried foods, cookies, crackers and other snack foods contains elevated amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. This creates an imbalance, leaving the door open to inflammation.
Making sure you are taking adequate amounts of omega-3 daily, like the kind found in CanPrev’s Omega-Pro™ Essential, helps maintain a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body. CanPrev uses molecularly distilled fish oils derived from small, wild, deep sea fish from South America with added vitamin E to retain freshness. Omega-Pro™ Essential formulas go through rigorous testing by an independent laboratory for 14 separate, stringent quality tests.
Omega-Pro™ Essential 40/20 provides a higher potency of 400 mg of EPA and 200 mg of DHA.

New Roots Wild Omega 3 - 120 caps
Pharmaceutical-grade pure fish oil sourced only from anchovies and sardines. Wild Omega 3 fish oil helps improve cognitive function, supports heart health, and reduces inflammation.
Fish oil is probably the most important dietary source of omega‑3 fatty acids, which are vital nutrients. Omega‑3 fatty acids are one type of essential fatty acids, special fats that the body needs as much as it needs vitamins. Much of the research into the potential therapeutic benefits of omega‑3 fatty acids began when studies of the Inuit people found that, although their diets contain an enormous amount of fat from fish, seals, and whales, they seldom suffer heart attacks or develop rheumatoid arthritis; this is presumably because those sources of fat are very high in omega‑3 fatty acids.
These fatty acids reduce inflammation, protect against the abnormal clotting associated with heart attacks, and possibly inhibit cancer. These omega‑3 fatty acids differ structurally from omega‑6 fatty acids. Evidence from studies show that omega‑3 fatty acids may reduce the chances of getting atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, and other heart and inflammatory diseases.
A study suggests that fish oil can be very helpful for bipolar disease, more commonly known as manic-depressive disorder. More research is needed, but this appears to be a potential breakthrough for this devastating illness, whose conventional treatments cause many side effects.
We do know that fish oil can lower serum triglycerides. Like cholesterol, triglycerides are a type of fat in the blood that tends to damage the arteries, leading to heart disease. Reducing triglyceride levels should help prevent heart disease to some extent. Fish oil also appears to modestly raise the levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Additionally, it may help the heart by “thinning” the blood and by reducing blood levels of homocysteine. Blood clots play a major role in heart attacks, and homocysteine is an amino acid that appears to raise the risk of heart disease.
A further benefit shown from the consumption of fish oil is in the production of eicosanoid compounds; these compounds regulate the communication between cells. The species of eicosanoid produced from omega‑3 fatty acids, as opposed to omega‑6 fatty acids, seem to better regulate immunological responses, such as the body tissues’ response to injury or disease. There may be other benefits, too: A 1992 study in the journal The Lancet suggests that omega‑3 fatty acids prolong pregnancy by a few days and improve birth weights.
Omega‑3s are part of the cell membrane composition; that’s why they are called “structural” fatty acids. The more you absorb these precious fatty acids, the healthier your cells will be, and the better the communication will be between them.
Fish oil appears to be safe. The most common complaint is fishy burps. Fish oil should not be combined with powerful blood-thinning medications, such as coumadin (warfarin) or heparin, except on the advice of your health-care practitioner.

GLA is a Very Essential Fat Fatty acids are good fats for optimal health. Unfortunately the North American diet is made up predominantly of bad fats from red meats and processed foods. To make matters worse when an enzyme in the body is impaired we can't make the good fats GLA, EPA or DHA. We can overcome this problem by eating fish or fish oils that contain EPA and DHA but when it comes to GLA the only way to get this important fatty acid is to take it in a nutritional supplement.
GLA (gamma linolenic acid) is found in borage oil (20 to 24%) and to a lesser extent evening primrose oil (8 to 10%). GLA is not found in food in high enough quantities to maintain our needs through diet alone.
GLA Eases Cramps and Breast Pain GLA deficiency is a major cause of PMS. A healthy body creates GLA via an enzyme from fats such as sunflower oil into prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds that regulate blood clotting, inflammation and muscle contraction. Just before menstruation a cascade of prostaglandins are initiated in the uterus which causes the constriction of blood vessels and contractions that cause pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloating and headaches that coincide with PMS. There are good prostaglandins and bad prostaglandins. Painful menstruation and breast pain are caused by low levels of good anti-inflammatory prostaglandins which are made from GLA. In many women with breast pain and terrible PMS their ability to make GLA is often impaired. One trial done at the breast clinic at the University of Hong Kong used GLA for the treatment of cyclical breast pain. Of the 66 women in the study 97% responded to treatment with GLA after 6 months. Further studies have found unusually low concentrations of GLA in the women suffering with period cramps and breast pain. The recommended dose is 1000-2000 mg of GLA per day.
GLA, Menopause and Skin In women who have gone through menopause, the enzyme that converts food into GLA becomes impaired. GLA is a major component of beautiful skin. GLA makes your skin luminescent, dewy and glowing. The main reason our skin becomes dull and thick after menopause is due to the inability to make GLA. After menopause it is essential that we take a daily dose of GLA to ensure beautiful skin. As we age GLA can reduce inflammation in the skin associated with wrinkled skin. Without sufficient GLA the skin becomes dry, rough and wrinkled.
GLA and Skin Health GLA helps to maintain the stability and fluidity of the natural water loss barrier in our skin. Skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, cradle cap, acne and dry skin occur. GLA is vital for keeping skin cells moist and strong improving the barrier function of the skin. In one study, 60 patients given 500 mg of GLA per day for eczema had a 90% improvement over 12 weeks. Eczema is a common problem in infants and children. GLA is safe for all ages without the side effects seen with steroid creams.
Cradle cap and infant dermatitis or dry crusts on the skin occur on the scalp, face, armpits, chest and groin area and can be treated with topical GLA oil. 48 infants with dermatitis were given twice daily applications of GLA oil for 6 weeks with complete relief. One teaspoon containing 500 mg of GLA should be applied twice a day.
GLA has also been found to inhibit male hormones in the skin that cause acne. GLA can be taken both internally and applied externally to acne prone areas with excellent results.
GLA and Bone Density Studies performed over 18 months found that when GLA was combined with calcium, GLA enhanced the absorption of calcium and improved bone density and prevented bone loss. Sixty five women with an average age of 79 years were given 600 mg of calcium glycinate/aspartate along with 1000 mg of GLA and had up to a 2% increase in bone density whereas the group receiving calcium alone lost 2 to 3% of bone over the 18 month period.
Borage oil is the highest source of GLA.
