Health Benefits of EPA and DHA
One of the main ingredients of Ultra Oil For Pets are anchovies and sardines. Anchovies and Sardines are full of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Fish oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA act as anti-inflammatory agents, and therefore can be used for inflammatory diseases including skin allergies can alleviate the inflammation of the skin (dermatitis) caused by allergies, fleas, scratching, etc. as well as improve the “shine” of the coat, leading to an overall healthier coat.
EPA is very effective in healthy joint cartilage, reducing the production and activity of the cartilage-damaging enzymes in your pet’s body.
DHA is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain, and thought to be vital for mental function and help brain development in puppies.
EPA and DHA can be used to aide inflammatory diseases including arthritis, kidney disease, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, epilepsy, and some types of cancer. Fish oil is used widely in cats and dogs, as well as horses.
The benefit these fatty acids have is that they are highly unsaturated. Being unsaturated is an advantage as it makes it easier for the body to break down and utilize these fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are an essential part of normal metabolism; however, they cannot actually be produced by the body, so they must be consumed through the diet. Because of this, they are referred to as essential fatty acids.
In comparison to most fish oil supplements on the market, Ultra Oil offers greater holistic and deeper healing properties. Our products contain a healthy balance of not only Omega 3 and Omega 6, but also Omega 9.
