Omega 3 is widely known as one of the important fatty acids your body needs. There are three important omega 3 fatty acids: ALA, DHA, EPA. ALA is an essential omega 3 fatty acid as it cannot be produced by the human body, instead it needs to be consumed in our daily diet. Both DHA and EPA are mainly found in fish oils, whereas ALA is from plant sources. The body can convert some ALA into DHA and EPA so even if you do not consume fish you’re able to get all three of these key omega 3 fatty acids.
Research shows that EPA and DHA have been closely linked to helping maintain a healthy heart, and DHA is known to benefit vision and brain health. Omega 3 fatty acids derive from a variety of sources, the most widely known is fish oil. However, they can also be found in a variety of seeds including flax and hemp seeds.
We have made sure our selection of Omega 3 supplements contain products suitable for all, including vegetarians.
We also know how important it is to encourage children to consume Omega 3 fats, and as such we have a range of supplements specifically designed with children in mind. So getting a daily dose of omega 3 for the whole family has never been easier.
