Reel in the benefits of Omega 3Omega 3 is an essential fat that our bodies and minds need to stay strong and healthy.
There are three necessary types of Omega 3’s: EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) can be found in some species of fish and shellfish, while ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid) is derived from some plants, nuts and seeds.
Research shows that sufficient amounts of Omega 3 can:
• Promote joint health and mobility by supporting natural joint suppleness and flexibility
• Support cellular function
• Support the cardiovascular system to maintain a strong and healthy heart.
Omega 3, particularly marine-sourced DHA/EPA, is so important for heart health that the National Heart Foundation recommends that “Australian adults consume about 500 milligrams of omega-3 (marine source) every day…by eating a combination of two to three 150 gram serves of oily fish every week and by supplementing intake with fish oil supplements (capsules or oil).”
Although it’s possible to consume the recommended amounts of Omega 3 through diet alone, if you lack the time or inspriation to prepare fresh fish then maintaining a healthy diet consistently can be a real challenge. With it's strong fishy flavour it can also be hard to enjoy on a frequest basis, or at all for some. Furthermore, there is no way to assess the actual Omega 3 content of a piece of fish as levels vary depending on the species, its habitat and diet.
A simple and convenient way to overcome these challenges is with a contaminant-free fish oil supplement that provides your recommended dietary intake of Omega-3.
Available in a 60 or 300 capsule pack size, Comvita’s Ocean Fresh™ Fish Oil supplement makes taking care of your Omega 3 intake easy. Our fish oil is a carefully produced blend of natural marine-sourced EPA and DHA from deep-water fish.
Each softgel capsule is easy to swallow and contains 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of DHA, and in accordance with National Heart Foundation guidelines we recommend taking 2 capsules, 2-3 times daily depending on your dietary and health requirements.
