Natural omega-3 concentrate (EPA and DHA)

In keeping with our 25-year commitment to excellence and innovation, our dietary supplement Super Omega 3 has been specifically formulated to provide an optimal intake of omega-3 fatty acids. In just a few years, these fatty acids have come to be seen as vital because of their numerous health benefits. Sometimes described as ‘good fats’, omega-3 fatty acids are said to be ‘essential’, which means our bodies need them in order to function properly - hence the importance of ensuring an optimal intake. Though they are found at significant levels in fish, modern diets are often lacking in omega-3. Super Omega 3 has therefore been formulated to offer a natural, optimal concentrate of these fatty acids.
Super Omega 3 contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Widely-studied since the 1970s, they are both involved in numerous biological functions. Essential for good health, omega-3 fatty acids contribute in particular to the development and activity of the retina, brain and nervous system. In addition, a number of scientific studies have confirmed that consumption of omega-3s helps prevent certain cardiovascular diseases including coronary disease. This is because they help:
Alongside their benefits for the cardiovascular system, other research has shown that omega-3 consumption may be linked to improvements in depression, symptoms of the menopause and psoriasis. And omega-3 fatty acids may reveal yet more advantages as many ongoing studies seem to suggest.
As is the case with our other omega-3 supplements (Super EPA and Super DHA), Super Omega-3 contains EPA and DHA in their natural form. Omega-3 fatty acids are available to buy in two varieties – triglycerides – a natural form, and ethyl esters – a synthetic form. The former is more expensive but studies suggest it is twice as bioavailable as the latter. This is one of the reasons we unsurprisingly favour natural omega-3s. In addition, the synthetic form is more difficult to digest and releases ethanol into the body. Finally, ethyl esters do not have food approval, unlike the triglycerides selected for Super Omega 3. For all these reasons, our new omega-3 supplement is proving very popular with many of our customers across the world.
To ensure optimal quality, Super Omega 3 is produced from first-class fish oils obtained from fishing zones free from any industrial contamination. Fished off the coasts of Peru and Chile, species are chosen for their naturally high content of omega 3 fatty acids (sardines, mackerel and anchovies). The oils are certified Friend of the Sea®, which means they come from sustainable fisheries that meet strict criteria, with guaranteed management of fishing quotas.
A patented technological purification process guarantees that the product is 100% free of any contaminant (PCB, heavy metals, dioxins). Super Omega 3 is then enriched by enzymatic hydrolysis, a totally natural process which helps produce the highest concentration of EPA and DHA. Finally, it is stabilized to prevent oxidation from altering its exceptional qualities. This prevents the generation of health-damaging free radicals. This development process produces a high quality supplement, providing 155mg of EPA and 115mg of DHA per capsule. Offering the benefits of these two omega-3 fatty acids, this supplement is available to buy in packs of 90 softgel capsules, with a suggested dose of three capsules a day.
