Moreover, anthocyanins can stimulate rhodopsin regeneration. The main role of rhodopsin is to maintain nerve transmission of eyes and thus provide better vision. Anthocyanins can prevent eye diseases especially retina problems, e.g. macular degeneration, myopia (short sight) and hyperopia (long sight).

Omega-3 fatty acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid commonly found in deep sea fish. Omega-3 is particularly beneficial for cardiovascular health, brain development, eye and joints health.ALA, EPA and DHA are the Omega-3 fatty acid that people are familiar with. ALA is derived from plant, EPA and DHA are derived from deep sea fish.
Human body cannot synthesize these fatty acids and therefore they can only be obtained from diet. EPA and DHA from fish oil provide multiple benefits to cardiovascular system. They can prevent accumulation of lipid in blood vessel, increase amount of HDL, reduce blood pressure and improve the elasticity of blood vessels. Therefore, omega 3 can promote cardiovascular health.
DHA and EPA are the essential elements in neurotransmission in the brain. Supplement adequate amount of DHA and EPA can maintain good memory and concentration, preventing their gradual decline as we age. DHA, an important component of the retina, can help the signal transmission in optic nerves and thus enhance vision.
DHA and EPA can also promote joints health. They can inhibit hyperplasia of white blood cells which can cause joint pain and swelling. They can also lubricate joint cartilages, slow down cartilage erosion or degeneration and maintain flexibility of joints.
European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommended adult should take 250 mg of EPA and DHA daily. Infants or young children age 7 to 24 months should take 100 mg of EPA and DHA daily for normal brain development. Children with age of 2 to 12 years should take 250 mg of EPA and DHA daily to maintain good health.
Benefits of Deep Sea Fish Oil Omega-3:
- • Lower “3 Highs”
- • Help brain coordination, maintain good memory and concentratio
