Omega 3 Fish Oil

Omega 3 Fish Oil contains a high concentration of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA . These essential fatty acids are important for healthy brain, heart and liver function as well as aiding other parts of our anatomy to operate optimally. Omega 3 Fish Oil has been shown to support mental function, and may decrease the damage done by inflammation and oxidisation in the brain and also regulate the production of important neurotransmitters (like serotonin – our happy molecule). Studies have also indicated joint health benefits.

Omega 3 Fish Oil Info

Humans must obtain Omega 3 fatty acids from our diet as, while they're essential for optimal health, our bodies can't synthesise them. The three Omega 3's are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Omega 3 Fish Oil contains high concentrations of EPA and DHA, the two Omega 3's used directly by the human body. ALA is the plant version of EPA and DHA. Once ingested, ALA is converted by a metabolic process into EPA and DHA to make it available for use within the body. Thus, unlike in the case of fish oil, another step is required in turning plant sourced Omega 3, such as flaxseed oil, into a form that can be utilised.

Omega 3 Fish Oil or Krill Oil supplementation is a reliable way of ensuring optimal intake of EPA and DHA for general health and well-being.

Omega 3 Fish Oil Benefits

The Omega 3 nutrients EPA and DHA may enhance quality of life and lower the risk of premature death. They have an important role in protecting and optimizing nerve cell functioning.

Conditions such as ADHD, autism, poor coordination, fatigue, dyslexia, and aggression may all improve with Omega 3 supplementation. Clinical trial have shown positive results with Omega 3 supplementation in affective disorders including depression and bipolar disorder. Cognitive function may improve with sharper memory, clearer thinking and mental agility through Omega 3. In early stage Alzheimer’s disease Omega 3 may slow down the rate of decline, and supplementation may protect against onset of the condition.

Optimal skin health, blood circulation and heart function, immune response and allergies are other indications for Omega 3 fish oils.

Omega 3 Fish Oil Side Effects

Omega 3 fish oils are generally safe and non-toxic when taken as directed.

While mercury contamination is theoretically possible, all of the Omega 3 Fish Oil supplements we stock are tested for unsafe levels of mercury and other contaminants.

  • Taking 1 capsule vs 3 a day - I'm sold

    star

    I had the other fish oils from Nutra-Life before I discovered this one which meant taking 3 capsules a day - and they are not small! It was great to find this product that I could take one of in a day and knew it would do its job confidently and not give me a fish breath. Great stuff.
