Cefaomega capsules contain highly dosed omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) from fish oil.
EPA and DHA are important for a normal function of the heart (250 mg), for the maintenance of normal blood pressure (3 g) and normal blood triglyceride levels (2 g). DHA is needed for the maintenance of normal vision (250 mg) and normal brain function (250 mg).
Additionally to the daily omega 3 supply (250 mg), DHA (200 mg) is recommended to pregnant and breastfeeding women for the normal development of the brain and the eyes of the child. The additionally contained vitamin E in Cefaomega contributes to the protection of the cells from oxidative damage. Moreover, the capsules are enteric-coated against unpleasant eructation.
(Note: The quantity of EPA + DHA supplied daily from enriched food and food supplements should not exceed 5 g.)
