Why take omega 3?


Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are named as such, as they are essential to our health. Unfortunately we can’t synthesise these ourselves, therefore the only way to obtain them is through our diet and supplementation. They are integral to the suppleness and health of all cells, and have been shown to provide many positive benefits for brain function, cardiovascular and nervous systems, joint health and mobility.

Flaxseed provides the body with omega-3 in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA).  ALA is not equivalent to DHA or EPA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted to EPA in order to be effective.

 

The importance of Vitamin D


The main source of vitamin D is via exposure to sunlight. So as people start to spend more time in doors both at work and/or at home, risks of deficiencies increase. This makes supplemental Vitamin D even more important. Some groups that are at risk of deficiencies include: older people in residential care or admitted to hospital, people with hip fractures, people with very dark skin, people with skin cancers or skin-related conditions, where avoidance of sunlight is required, people who completely avoid the sun, people with malabsorption syndromes.

One key need for optimal Vitamin D is for bone health. Vitamin D is ideal for anyone who does not get enough natural sunlight. It works with calcium to support its absorption into the bone, thus in turn it helps to build and maintain strong healthy bones. Vitamin D is also important for healthy moods, and immunity.

Optimal vitamin D is needed to support:
  • Healthy bone building and strength
  • Calcium absorption
  • Balanced moods, especially over the darker winter months
  • Healthy immunity

Is our ocean life in danger of extinction?
A staggering 100,000 tonnes of fish oil are now consumed from our oceans, of that over 51,000 tonnes are used for food supplements, says a new report. The study led by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) concluded “We now face losing marine species and entire marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, within a single generation,” according to the study by 27 experts to be presented to the United Nations.

The only sustainable and long term alternative has to be renewable algal sources. Choose EPA & DHA rich sustainable sources for your food supplements, algae derived materials are a proven 100% clean, free from toxins and do not come from the already ravaged oceans.
