Omega 3 & Fish Oils
Fish oils and Omega 3 supplements including cod liver oil, red krill oil and plant oil alternatives high in Omega 3 such as flaxseed oil, have long been linked with heart health, lower cholesterol and joint and bone health benefits.
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). They come in 3 forms including α-linolenic acid (ALA) found in plant oils, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) both commonly found in marine oils such as cod liver oil and krill oil.
Krill oil is from tiny shrimp like marine crustaceans. It has many positive benefit links to studies on heart disease, cholesterol and high blood pressure. Myvitamins Total Krill Oil is the premium source of Omega 3 for those looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing. Sourced directly from sustainable Antarctic krill, Total Krill Oil is an exceptionally pure and sustainable source of Omega 3 as well as being a natural source of the popular carotenoid Astaxanthin. Providing a number of health benefits, this compound is what gives seafood it’s pink appearance.
Other fish oil supplements like the popular cod liver oil and daily omega 3 fish oil vitamin have also had many positive studies linking them to cardiac health alongside other benefits including brain and eye health. Myvitamins offers a range of omega 3 fish oil including Omega 3 Super containing a minimum of 530mg EPA and 90mg DHA. The high level of EPA makes Omega 3 Super one of the strongest supplements on the market and is ideal for those looking to boost their heart health.
Omega 3-6-9 provides the perfect ratio blend of the known Omega fatty acids. The western diet has become unbalanced with regards to an increased intake of omega 6 from procressed foods. This effective fish oil supplement is ideal for ensuring the correct quantities of each are consumed each day.
Omega 3 can also be found in certain plant oils like flaxseed. Flaxseed, or linseed oil, contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Flaxseed oil is a great alternative for non-fish eaters. Myvitamins offers Myprotein’s leading Flax Seed Powder. Flaxseed has a nutty taste, is brown in colour and is an excellent supplement for anyone wanting to increase their intake of essential fatty acids or boost their calorie consumption.
