For those of you who are taking Nature Made® Omega-3 fatty acid supplement, you may notice that the labeling on the bottle has changed! I was at Walmart and saw that the previous “Fish Oil” labeling has changed to EPA/DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Let’s talk about why the change happened, what the benefits of EPA/DHA are, and some key facts about taking Omega-3 supplements.

(Hover over the image to purchase these supplements for yourself!)

Are you looking for fish oil at Walmart? You can find a selection of Nature Made® Omega-3 supplements, including Nature Made® Omega-3 Full Strength Mini, 500mg EPA+DHA, Burpless, that now tell you how much EPA and DHA are in each dose! Also, Nature Made® is the #1 Pharmacist recommended vitamin and supplement brand*

Why the change in labeling?

To make it more apparent as to what is in the bottle, Nature Made® has specifically changed the label for your benefit. It is actually the EPA and DHA Omega-3’s from fish oil that matter. These are the active ingredients in fish oil that provide heart healthy benefits†.

Walmart is trying to make it easier for shoppers to navigate amongst the other “fish oil” supplements in the aisle. To ensure that the shopper has found the right one, they changed the labeling to be clear on what they are receiving.

What are the benefits of EPA and DHA Omega-3’s?

The two primary Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA and DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy fats that should be included in most people’s diets; are are found naturally in fish oils.  The Omega-3’s found in fish oil (EPA and DHA) have been studied extensively for their roles in supporting heart health. 1-2,†

In fact, there has been so much research showing the link between EPA/DHA and heart health support that the FDA approved a qualified claim that “supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.” 3
