Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely important in human nutrition and are generally known to be involved in regulating a variety of biochemical pathways in the body. There is a wealth of peer-reviewed medical literature which establishes that eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are two of the most important omega-3 fatty acids. Because the body can only make them to a very limited extent, humans must rely on food sources or supplementation to meet this nutritional need.
EPA and DHA are most easily obtained from marine sources such as fish. Trygg Pharma AS uses oils, derived from sustainable fisheries in Peru, in which the levels of EPA and DHA have been highly concentrated. Our products are manufactured according to cGMP and are pharmaceutical grade.
Thousands of peer-reviewed research articles have documented health benefits of EPA and DHA in relation to cardiovascular diseases. Current research shows that these compounds also play a pivotal role in chronic inflammation as well as metabolic diseases. The R&D and investigational product development programs of Trygg Pharma AS are building on this established foundation.
