The polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA and DHA are in the group of Omega-3 fats. The human body is unable to synthesise them itself and so it must absorb them from food. Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for regular body functioning, in particular for the cardiovascular and central nervous systems. They are well-known, for example, on account of their calming influence on the intestines, joints and skin.
EPA and DHA contribute to reducing triclycerides (LDL – so-called “bad cholesterol”) and increasing the level of HDL cholesterol (so-called “good cholesterol”). EPA also participates in the synthesis of protective factors in the blood vessels.
DHA is a component of the central nervous system.
– Promotes healthy blood pressure – Keeps blood vessels clean – Supports brain functioning – When stressed – Soothes the intestines, joints and tissues – Beneficial for the immune system – For dry, raw skin
The addition of vitamin E protects against oxidation.
Recommended intake (for adults): 3 softgels daily spread across meals and with plenty of water.
3 softgels contain: Fish oil 3,000mg Omega-3 fatty acids 1,107mg of which eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 540mg of which docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 360mg Vitamin E 30mg Alpha-TE
SUPER-ABSORBABLE GLUCOSAMINE: we use the purest form of glucosamine – hydrochloride as opposed to sulphate. It’s sourced from a natural fungus called aspergillus niger and is hypoallergenic – perfect for those with seafood allergies who normally have to avoid glucosamine. Glucosamine is an important amino acid which is synthesized by the body from glucose and is part of the connective tissue in the joints. It provides the shock-absorbing mechanism that protects joints against wear and tear.
ULTRA-PURE WILD WISH OIL & ORGANIC EVENING PRIMROSE OIL: the fatty acids EPA and GLA found in fish oil and evening primrose oil have a unique relationship and work together to ‘switch off’ inflammatory substances produced by the omega-6 fatty acid AA . Taking fish oil and evening primrose oil supports the body’s natural balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats, which is necessary for regulating levels of inflammation and good immune function.
MARINE-SOURCED CALCIUM: we use algas calcareas for our calcium source as it’s much more bioavailable than limestone-derived calcium. It also has the added benefit of being rich in over 70 minerals and trace minerals including boron, copper, magnesium, selenium and silica – all known to play a role in bone health, maintaining a healthy immune system and regulating inflammatory response.
WITH VITAMINS C, D3 and ZINC: required for optimal immune support and for collagen synthesis, which provides strength, resilience and support to cartilage, tendons and bones
HIGHEST QUALITY & PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE: Our ultra-concentrated omega-3 oils need extra protection against oxidation so we ensure our supplements are constantly protected from air exposure. Our oils remain under a nitrogen cap until encapsulated and are packaged in protective individual blister packaging, with the antioxidant protection of vitamin E. This prevents the production of peroxidase products, with no need for refrigeration during storage or transport.
