Why Omega-3?

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are "good" fats that:

  • Contain natural substances your body needs for good health but can't produce on its own
  • Lower levels of "bad" fats like triglycerides


  • LOVAZA is made from all-natural fish oil
  • LOVAZA is the first and only omega-3 medication approved by the FDA. This medication contains 850 mg of omega 3 fatty acids.
  • By choosing LOVAZA over dietary supplements you can buy at the store, you are getting the only omega-3 fish oil made through an FDA-approved preparation process and approved to treat a specific disease – very high triglycerides
  • Unlike dietary supplements, prescription drugs undergo significant review prior to being approved by the FDA to help ensure proper preparation, strength and effectiveness

LOVAZA Is Proven

  • LOVAZA, along with diet, is approved by the FDA to reduce very high triglycerides
  • LOVAZA is made through an FDA-approved preparation process. Unlike LOVAZA, dietary supplements are not approved to treat any disease and are not required to follow a preparation process pre-approved by the FDA

LOVAZA Is Concentrated

  • LOVAZA uses a 5-step purification process that helps remove mercury and other environmental toxins that can be present in fish oil
  • Each 1-gram capsule of LOVAZA contains 465 mg EPA and 375 mg DHA, the active fatty acids proven to lower very high triglycerides
  • It may take up to 18 capsules per day of an omega-3 supplement to achieve the same amount of EPA and DHA found in a 4-gram dose of LOVAZA

Take four 1-gram capsules of LOVAZA each day, along with a healthy diet, to lower very high triglycerides.*

How to Take LOVAZA

Take LOVAZA as prescribed by your doctor. Here are some tips:

  • Take four 1-gram capsules of LOVAZA every day:
    • Take all four capsules at the same time, or
    • Take two capsules two times a day
  • Take LOVAZA at the same time(s) each day
  • Do not take more than four 1-gram capsules of LOVAZA each day
  • If you miss a dose of LOVAZA, take it as soon as you can. If you miss a dose, do not "double up"
