In the Spotlight: MorEPA Cholesterol

 

Looking after our health has always been important, but even more so now than ever before. And a big part of taking care of your overall health is being mindful of your heart and managing good cholesterol levels.

What is Cholesterol?

 

Cholesterol is a fatty substance that can be found in your blood and, having very high levels of cholesterol can lead to serious health issues. Many people can take steps to lower and later maintain their cholesterol levels through healthy eating and regular exercise.

 

If you’re looking for an extra helping hand in supporting your heart health and cholesterol level, our MINAMI® MorEPA Cholesterol could be the right omega-3 supplement for you.

 

MorEPA Cholesterol: What You Need to Know

 

MorEPA Cholesterol has been designed with your heart health and cholesterol levels in mind. The MorEPA Cholesterol formula has high levels of EPA and DHA per softgel, which are known to contribute to normal function of the heart* – it has also been fortified with vitamin B6 and B12 and Red Yeast Rice.

 

Omega-3 is a vital nutrient that should be consumed as part of a healthy lifestyle. Alongside EPA and DHA contributing to normal heart function, DHA also contributes to healthy brain function and vision**

MINAMI® MorEPA Cholesterol also contains added vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.

 

What are the Benefits of Vitamin B6?

 

 

Vitamin B6 is important to overall health and helps the body to form haemoglobin, the iron-rich protein found in red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body. Your body cannot produce vitamin B6 naturally, so it must be consumed through foods or supplements. You can find vitamin B6 in foods such as certain fish, poultry, bananas, oats, and peanuts.

 

 

What are the Benefits of Vitamin B12?

 

 

Vitamin B12 is a vital nutrient that supports the body’s nerve and blood cells, helping to keep them healthy. It can only be found naturally within animal products such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy including but not limited to:

 

  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Tuna
  • Salmon
  • Trout
  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Yoghurts

 

It does not come naturally in plant-based foods however many vegan-friendly products have been fortified:

 

  • Nutritional yeast
  • Plant-based milk or cereals
  • Meat substitutes

Again, our bodies cannot produce B12 naturally, so we must consume it through our diet or via supplements.

 

 

Vitamin B6 and B12 have been shown to have a range of health benefits, but the key ones that are important as part of our MorEPA Cholesterol Omega-3 Fish Oil are:

 

  • Vitamins B6 and B12 contribute to normal red blood cell formation*
  • Vitamins B6 and B12 help support a healthy immune system*
  • Vitamins B6 and B12 contribute to reducing tiredness and fatigue*
  • Vitamin B6 and folic acid contribute to normal homocysteine metabolism*. Elevated homocysteine is linked to degenerative conditions.

 

MorEPA Cholesterol also contains fermented Red Yeast Rice that contains the active substance Monacolin K which helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels*

 

 

Overall, the combination of our high-strength omega-3 with the addition of vitamins B6 and B12 in our MorEPA Cholesterol Omega-3 Fish Oil makes it a great helping hand for managing your cholesterol and heart health. If you do choose to take supplements, we always recommend that they’re taken alongside a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle and should never be used as a substitute.
