Essential Omegas by Hardy Nutritionals provide an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids in their naturally existing ratios from a high-quality blend of North Atlantic anchovy, sardine, and mackerel fish oils.*
Adequate amounts of essential fatty acids are essential for proper mental and cardiovascular health, as well as for general well-being.

The most important nutrients in fish oils are the essential omega-3 fatty acids—eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are “essential” because we must get them from our diet; our bodies cannot make them.*
Most of the fat we consume is used for energy or stored in fat tissues. In contrast, EPA and DHA are “healthy” polyunsaturated fats that have unique biological functions.*
Research has linked deficiencies of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA with depression, ADHD, high blood pressure, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, asthma, and skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis.*
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
Our bodies use EPA to make prostaglandins, which regulate many body functions. Here are a few examples of how prostaglandins help you to be healthy:
- Control cell growth.
- Improve kidney function.
- Control hormone balance.
- Regulate calcium movement.
- Regulate blood pressure and clotting.
- Improve immune response by regulating fevers.
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
DHA is the most abundant omega 3 fatty acid in the brain and retina, comprising 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain and 60% in the retina. In fact, DHA makes up half of the total weight of neuron cell membranes throughout the body. DHA helps to:
- Regulate heartbeat.
- Regulate brain signals.
- Improve depressed mood.
- Improve cognitive function.
- Enhance infant and child development.
- Regulate cellular processes such as insulin release.
Essential Omegas Suggested Use :
Take 2 soft gels (2 times a day) with food, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
At the recommended dose (4 softgels/day), one bottle of Essential Omegas will last 30 days.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are two well-known omega-3 fatty acids that have a functional role in mood and a structural role the brain. EPA is a precursor for signaling molecules which assist in immune function, but also reduces anxiety and depression. DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain and retina and comprises fifty percent, by weight, of a neuron’s membrane lipids. A supplemental dose of 1-3 grams per day is recommended, or as tolerated.
