hello vishal

omega 3 fatty acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid which is cardio protective and is very important in the development of various organs of the nervous system.Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function.

Axepta is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
