A number of countries (Canada, Sweden, United Kingdom, Australia and Japan) as well as the World Health Organization have made formal dietary recommendations for omega-3 fatty acids. Typical recommendations are 0.3 to 0.5 g/day of EPA + DHA.
The amount found in the 2 capsules (1g fish oil) in the Wellness Pack is approximately 0.3 g of total EPA + DHA. This is a perfectly balanced amount for a daily supplement to complement the normal food intake.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, meaning that they cannot be produced by our body and therefore must be obtained from the diet. Most people do not consume enough omega-3 rich foods to reach the recommended intake, and would therefore benefit from supplementation.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a part of all membranes in the body, including the skin’s. For the skin, this means keeping it moist and strong. Its positive effects on skin elasticity are well-documented.
Heavy metals found in fish bind to protein, and therefore it is more toxic to consume the flesh of the fish than it is to consume the purified oil. Our fish oil is derived from small fish from the Pacific Ocean. Moreover, it is purified during the manufacturing process, properly protected against oxidation, has undergone molecular distillation and is of a pharmaceutical caliber. From a toxicology standpoint it is therefore much safer to take omega 3 supplements than to eat fatty fish.
Fish allergies are caused by your body’s reaction to fish protein. Even though our oil only contains trace amounts of protein, this can be enough to trigger an allergic reaction if your allergy is severe. Therefore it is not advisable to use fish oil supplements.
Provided that they are old enough to swallow the capsule, yes you can.
Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in both oils. Fish oils have the longer omega 3 fatty acids called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) while vegetable oils contain the shorter fatty acids called ALA (alpha linolenic acid). Our bodies convert ALA to the longer chains depending upon availability, ability and need. EPA and DHA fatty acids have documented health benefits for the nervous and cardiovascular system as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Because the longer chains are responsible for the positive health effects, we have chosen omega 3 from fish instead of vegetarian sources.
It is true. Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA is important in development and function of the baby’s nervous system - the brain and the eyes - especially in the last three months of pregnancy and the first six months of the child’s life. The only way of providing babies with these essential fatty acids is through the mother. It is a good principle to consult your doctor before starting any supplemental regime if you are pregnant.
