February is National Heart Health Month~Keep your Ticker Healthy with Nordic Naturals
February is National Heart Health Month. Did you know that more than 610,000 people die each year in the US alone from heart disease? That is one in every four deaths, making it the leading cause of death in both men and women. It is no surprise then that the American Heart Health Association recommends eating fish two times per week in an effort to support overall cardiovascular function and reduce the incidence of heart disease. Why? Because thousands of clinical studies have shown that increased intake of EPA and DHA – the omega-3 essential fatty acids naturally found in fish and fish oil- have many cardiovascular benefits.
But simply including fish in your diet may not always be sufficient and there are also concerns over environmental contaminants. Supplementing the diet with a high-quality purified fish oil guarantees the recommended dosage of omega-3's to support heart health, particularly for anyone with existing cardiovascular disease.
Nordic Naturals, the #1 Fish Oil Company in the US, understands the importance of combining fish oil supplementation with a heart-healthy diet rich in whole, nutrient dense food, such as the Mediterranean diet along with an active lifestyle to support heart health. Their range of supplements contains a number of pure, fresh, high quality omega-3 formulations that support cardiovascular health from maintenance all the way to high concentration supplementation in a number of delivery systems such as soft gels, liquids, gummies, and emulsions.
Ultimate Omega 2X
The next generation of fish oil, Ultimate Omega® 2X features Nordic Natural's new, ultra-concentrated omega oil. In a slightly larger soft gel that delivers 1000 mg EPA+DHA, this powerful concentrate offers one or two soft gel serving options to meet a broad range of unique nutritional needs.

Thankfully, Nordic Naturals has created omega-3 supplements that do not bother me at all. The
Ultimate Omega 2X capsules have a lemon flavor and are easy to swallow.
