In the first study of its kind, two of natures most important nutrient super-stars will take center stage
Scientists at Harvard Medical School and Brigham Women’s Hospital will determine the impact of Omega-3 fish oil and Vitamin D on cardiovascular and cellular health. Funded through the National Institutes of Health, the study—dubbed the Vitamin D and Omega 3 VITAL trial (VITamin D and OmegA-3 TriaL)—will evaluate 20,000 men and women over a period of five years.
Fish oil and vitamin D are two of the most recognized supplements among consumers today. Unfortunately, very few foods naturally contain vitamin D or the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA; therefore, achieving an optimal intake through diet alone can be difficult. Nutrition surveys suggest that the majority of Americans fail to consume enough vitamin D from food sources and dietary supplements combined.5 Furthermore, the usual dietary intake of EPA and DHA in the United States is only about 150 mg per day—not enough for health benefits.6†
Natrol has created Fish Oil + Vitamin D3, a convenient once-a-day product that combines 1,000 mg fish oil with high potency vitamin D (1,000 IU) to help consumers achieve a healthy intake of omega-3 fats and vitamin D for optimal health.†
