Our Omega 3 Fish Oil provides high potency DHA-EPA (omega 3) fatty acids that help maintain a healthy heart and circulation, and proper brain function. It is extracted from whole fish (sardine & anchovy) with the livers removed. Omega 3 is generally lower than desirable in the fatty acid balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6. Omega 3 is a ‘’good’’ fat which cannot be produced by the body and must therefore be obtained through diet or supplementation.
Omega 6, although important, is abundant in the modern diet, mainly due to consumption of nuts, pulses and grains found in cereals. However Omega 3 is far less abundant and is concentrated in oily fish that we may not be eating as often as we should.
A brief word on Cod Liver Oils: Due to pollution in our oceans, fish contain elevated levels of heavy metals and other nasty toxins, and they generally concentrate in the livers of fish, which is why our Omega 3 is created from whole crushed fish with the livers removed.
