These are a collection of polyunsaturated fatty acids which help to lower cholesterol level and reduce inflammation throughout the body. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are called essential fatty acids because our body cant produce them. Therefore, we have to get these from either food or supplements.


Flaxseed oil, canola oil, walnut and soya beans contain omega 3 fatty acids, however cold water fish like salmon, tuna and herring are the best source of omega 3 fatty acids.

 

Uses


Inflammation

Studies suggest a role for omega 3 fatty acids in various inflammatory conditions. Deficiency of Omega 3 fatty acids is relevant to a variety of inflammatory conditions including arthritis, colitis, Crohn’s, etc.   


Cardiovascular Health

Many studies have linked dietary EPA and DHA intake to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

Pregnancy

An adequate intake of DHA and EPA is particularly important during pregnancy and lactation.


Dysmenorrhea

Research suggests that omega 3 fatty acids may be beneficial in alleviating menstrual cramping. The anti-inflammatory properties of omega 3 fatty acids may be a factor, along with the importance of essential fatty acids in sex hormone manufacture and the high probability of omega 3 to omega 6 imbalances.


Brain Health

DHA comprises about 25% of the brain and along with arachidonic acid is a major structural component of the brain. Low levels of DHA have been correlated with changes in disposition, memory loss, and visual and other neurological conditions.


Mental Health

Many studies support the theory that higher consumption of omega 3 fatty acids correlates with a decreased incidence of depression.


Precautions

Please consult your GP if you are already taking any medication for the above conditions.


Typical Supplemental Dosage Range


Fish oil: EPA 180 -1500mg per day, DHA 120-1000mg per day
