There is no doubt that fish oils are beneficial to human health, but many fish oil supplements miss the mark when it comes to formulation. Furthermore, some fish oil products that claim to benefit the gut microbiome are actually formulated more for brain health than gut health based on their omega-3 ratios. Fish oil is indispensable in natural medicine, but it has been severely underutilized for digestive and intestinal health. A recent experimental study published in the Journal of Scientific Reports found that omega-3 supplementation increases microbial diversity, specifically Bifidobacterium, Akkermansia muciniphila, and Lactobacillus, and enhances the production of intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP) – an endogenous antimicrobial peptide that suppresses E. coli, detoxifies LPS, and balances gut microbiota.1 The primary omega-3 fatty acids include eicosapentanoic acid (EPA), docosahexanoic acid (DHA), and docosapentanoic acid (DPA) – each with unique health benefits to the host.
MegaOmega™ is the most comprehensive, full-spectrum fish oil scientifically formulated to support a healthy gut microbiome with a superior ratio of EPA, DHA, and the “forgotten” DPA, as well as naturally-occurring metabolites called pro-resolving mediators (PRMs) shown to support a healthy immune and inflammatory response. MegaOmega™ is specifically formulated with higher EPA content than DHA content in order to support a healthy gut.
