We are extremely proud to present our new OMEGA 3 oil. We have been working on this launch for a long time, because we wanted to find the right formula, strength and quality of the important and essential fatty acids. Now it is finally here!
ABOUT OUR OMEGA 3?
Our Omega 3 is based on wild Peruvian anchovies from the Pacific Ocean. Anchovies are by nature a fatty fish, which makes it rich in the essential fatty acids (DHA & EPA). It is a small fish and therefore placed low in the food chain, which naturally gives it a low heavy metal content.
This supplement contains 1000 mg of omega 3 oil per capsule, including 455 mg of EPA and 230 mg of DHA, as well as a natural content of vitamin E. It is a potent and concentrated source of pure omega 3 in a beautiful clear capsule.
Our OMEGA 3 is tested and certified for purity and freshness, with each batch we receive. TOTOX value: 10,9.
We recommend 1-2 capsules on a daily basis.
WHY DO YOU NEED OMEGA 3?
The importance of omega 3 is not to be underestimated and the benefits of omega 3 is well documented. EFSA (European Food Safety Authorities) recognizes that omega 3 - providing a daily intake of EPA and DHA of at least 200-2000 mg - contributes to the following health-promoting properties:
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OMEGA 3?
Omega 3 is polyunsaturated fatty acids and is categorized as an "essential" fatty acid, which means that your body cannot produce it itself, which is why you need it from your diet.
Within omega 3, there are 3 types of fatty acids: ALA, DHA & DHA.
WHAT KIND OF OMEGA 3 DO I NEED?
As mentioned above, there are 3 types of Omega 3; ALA, EPA and DHA - and it is important to understand the difference to make sure you get the right balance between the sources.
Most people associate Omega 3 with fish - and it is also the primary recommended source of omega 3. However plants and nuts also contain important omega 3 properties, but there is a difference in the type of omega 3 from fish and plants, as well as the body's reaction to these.
The reason why fish often are related to omega 3 is due to their natural high level and direct source of DHA and EPA. It is one of the most intense sources in terms of the amount of fat. This means you need a "smaller" amount of fish to reach the recommended doses of EPA and DHA.
However, not all fish are rich in omega 3. Hence omega 3 is a fatty acid, it requires a fatty fish - and most fish are lean. If you want to secure the recommended amounts of omega 3 (EPA & DHA), it requires you eating fatty fish on a weekly basis eg salmon, mackerel, herring, anchovies and sardines.
SOURCE: NUTS & SEEDS
Plants, seeds and nuts are plant-based sources to omega 3, but they do not contain EPA and DHA, like fish do. They are rich in ALA, which is a precursor to DHA and EPA.
This means that when you consume ALA, your body will automatically convert ALA to EPA and DHA - amazing, right? It is estimated that 10-20% of your ingested source of ALA is converted to DHA / EPA. This however means that you need to consume more of the plant-based fatty acid before you reach the recommended levels of DHA / EPA on a weekly / daily basis.
Algae are different from other plant-based omega 3 sources - they contain a direct source of DHA and EPA. How much depends on the type of algae, but there are many good supplements based on algae, that can cover the daily needs of DHA and EPA.
YOUR DAILY NEEDS OF OMEGA 3?
According to EU recommendations, minimum 1% of your daily energy intake should come from omega 3. This is equivalent to approximately 2.5-3 g of omega 3 daily for adults aged 18-60 years. Out of the 3g it is recommended that at least half should come from ALA (approximately 1.2-1.8 g per day) and a minimum of 300-500 mg from DHA / EPA.
It is recommended that you eat fatty fish at least two times a week, to achieve the recommended levels of EPA / DHA. Many people find it difficult to reach these recommendations - either because they don't like fatty fish or forget to include enough in their diet. In this case, a supplement can be beneficial on a daily basis.
Our Omega 3 gives you a clean and good source of the healthy and essential fatty acids that support your body on a daily basis. We recommend 1-2 capsules a day and preferably together with our VITAMAX multivitamin.
WHAT ABOUT HEAVY METALS?
The heavy metals are often stored in the fat of the fish, which is why fatty fish also contain much more heavy metals than lean fish. If you consume large amounts of predatory fish, your level of heavy metals will also increase, unfortunately.
A high quality omega 3 supplement contains extremely limited amounts of heavy metals and toxins. Our OMEGA 3 is tested and certified for purity and freshness, with each batch we receive.
VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN?
.. if you are a vegetarian or a vegan - and do not eat fish, then you should focus on the plant-based sources, which contain natural amounts of omega 3 - and preferably algae, which is rich in DHA / EPA. A combination of an algea oil and Flaxseed oil is great vegan solution.
