Omega-3 fatty acids are important as the body cannot produce them and therefore they can only be obtained from the diet. One of the richest natural sources of Omega-3 EFAs (Essential fatty acids) is the oil extracted from cold-water fish.
Omega-3 EFAs are essential for normal growth and development. This formulation is in an easy to swallow soft gel capsule.

Q1 What are Omega-3 fatty acids, and why do we need them?
A1 There are several types of fatty acids, and they’re categorised in
Firstly, fatty acids are divided according to whether your body
can manufacture them on its own or not. If so, they’re called
“non-essential”; and if not, they’re called “essential”.
Secondly, they’re grouped into “Omega” families according to
their chemical structure. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in high
levels in fi sh and seafood. Omega-6 fatty acids are found mostly in
plant-based oils, and Omega-9 fatty acids are found in olive and
sunfl ower oil.
Our diets tend to naturally include a lot of foods that are high
in Omega-6 fatty acids, and most Omega-9 fatty acids are
non-essential. However, many Western diets lack the fi sh and
seafood that would provide Omega-3 essential fatty acids, so for
some people their intake may be low.
Q2 What are the essential Omega-3 fatty acids, and what roles do
they play in health and wellbeing?
A2 Two of the most important essential Omega-3 fatty acids are
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Your body uses these two fatty acids in a wide variety of ways.
For example, Fish oil containing EPA and DHA helps support the
health and function of the cardiovascular system. DHA is one of the
most abundant fatty acids in your brain, and is required for normal
brain function and cognitive health. Fish oil also supports healthy
growth and development in babies and young children.
Other roles that essential Omega-3 fatty acids play include
helping to support the health and function of the nervous system.
Supplementation with Omega 3 fatty acids may assist in the relief of
dry eye syndrome.
Q3 How much Omega-3 do we need each day?
A2 Unlike with vitamins and minerals, there is no absolute
“recommended daily intake” for essential Omega-3 fatty acids.
Many studies indicate that the Omega-3 should be higher relative
to the Omega-6 level than that presently found in the general
population. It is recommended to increase the consumption of food
rich in Omega-3.1 Fish Oil is a source of Omega-3.
