Omega-3 are essential nutrients the human body must acquire from diet or supplements. They help build and maintain a healthy body and perform important functions in the human cells.
There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA and DHA. While ALA is found in plants and is very common is the human diet, APA and DHA can only be obtained from seafood, such as fatty fish (e.g., salmon, tuna, and trout) and shellfish (e.g., crab, mussels, and oysters). Since this type of food isn’t necessarily common in our diet, supplementation is recommended.
Evidence suggests omega-3 supplementation contribute to:
- normal functioning of the heart
- maintenance of normal vision
- normal brain function,
- normal fetal development (during pregnancy) etc.
This is why we developed a line of omega-3 supplements for everybody – even for vegans.
