We are Increasingly aware that Omega-3’s prevent heart disease and this has led to an increase in the number of recommendations to take Omega-3’s to support heart health with the potential to decrease death from cardiovascular disease. Other areas of emerging research include cognition (past infancy), inflammatory conditions (e.g. allergies, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease).
