Mayo Clinic Jumps On the Fish Oil Bandwagon

Miracles never cease and it appears that the Mayo Clinic1 is trying to enter the 21st century with at least a finger on the nutritional pulse of reality. My cursory review of their website found them woefully lacking even the basic ideas of what really works on most health topics – but at least they have come out and stated that fish oil is a terrific nutrient for the prevention and treatment of heart disease.
They recommended 1 gram of fish oil per day for those with or at risk for coronary artery disease and 500 mg a day for general prevention. They also suggested 3-4 grams of fish oil per day for those with elevated triglycerides.
I guess it was impossible for the Mayo Clinic to ignore thousands of published studies. It is a glimmer of light for an organization that has been living with its head in the sand on the subject of nutrition for decades.
Wellness Resources produces the finest molecularly distilled fish oil products on the market today – high in the all important DHA and free of all mercury. Leptinal is our flagship cardiovascular support product and we have plain DHA in smaller capsules – especially for children (DHA helps learning).*
