As well as Vitamin K the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA) like those in cold water fish and OmegaGuard plays a role in the formation of prostaglandins, which are hormone like substances, which regulate blood clotting.

May be beneficial for those with male pattern baldness, as it inhibits an enzyme associated with converting testosterone to DHT (wh
