When you think of omega-3s, the healthy fats’ ability to support a healthy inflammatory response likely comes to mind first—after all, these potent fatty acids are renowned for joint, heart, and brain benefits.* These masterful fats are whole-body relevant.

But many people don’t realize that omega-3s’ antioxidant benefits are closely intertwined with their ability to promote a healthy inflammatory response.* Here’s how a quality omega-3 supplement can help promote antioxidant activity (and support longevity, too).*

How an omega-3 supplement promotes longevity.

While it’s certainly possible to get a useful amount of omega-3 fatty acids from your diet to support these antioxidant benefits, most Americans aren’t eating enough fatty fish (e.g., salmon, tuna, anchovies, sardines, mackerel) to support the optimal omega-3 intake.

Taking a premium, high-potency omega-3 supplement (i.e., one that’s pure, sustainably sourced, and delivers one gram or more of EPA plus DHA) can help you increase your body’s antioxidant capacity in an effective and convenient way.* 

According to a 2019 systematic review and meta-analysis of clinical trials from Pharmacological Research4, omega-3 supplementation has been shown to significantly increase total antioxidant capacity and glutathione activity (aka your body’s master antioxidant)—both of which promote overall longevity and well-being.*

mbg’s omega-3 potency+ delivers 1.5 grams of EPA plus DHA from sustainably sourced, ORIVO third-party certified, wild-caught anchovies to increase antioxidant actions and promote heart, brain, joint, and whole-body longevity.*
