Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Adequate dietary availability of EPA and DHA is fundamental to brain function. EPA and DHA are important throughout adulthood, as well as during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development. Dietary supplementation with DHA and EPA has proven beneficial for many of the known higher mental functions. Among the proven brain benefits of DHA/EPA are the perinatal development of visual and other sensory functions; perinatal emergence of cognitive function and maintenance throughout life; behavior management; and mood control (e.g., the mood swings of bipolar disorder or symptoms of major depressive disorder). DHA appears to influence brain development and cognition; whereas, EPA seems to be more influential on behavior and mood. In double-blind, randomized, controlled trials, EPA and DHA combinations have been shown to benefit attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and aggression. For the affective disorders, meta-analyses confirm benefits in major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder, with promising results in schizophrenia and initial benefit for borderline personality disorder. Accelerated cognitive decline and mild cognitive impairment correlate with lowered tissue levels of DHA/EPA, and supplementation has improved cognitive function.

    Super EPA (an EPA/DHA fish oil supplement) has been one of our bestselling products for over two decades because of its exceptional purity and quality. Recent technology has provided us with an ultra-concentrated, ultra-pure fish oil material that enabled us to increase the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula allows you to dispense the high-dose EPA and DHA that recent research says is indicated, without having to take extra capsules, resulting in better efficacy and patient compliance. As always, you can count on Thorne to provide the highest quality, purest fish oil available. Molecular distillation ensures removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

    Another innovation from Thorne – no more bovine gelcaps! We are proud to introduce the first products in gelcaps made entirely from fish-derived gelatin.
