Fish oil high in omega-3 and heavy metal and toxin free.
Our fish oil comes from sustainable catches in Norway and has a remarkably high content of omega-3 fatty acids. We also add astaxanthin. Because it is tasteless and not encapsulated, Omega-3 Vida can also be taken well by children. If you want to buy a fish oil with a high proportion of omega-3, Omega-3 Vida is a high-quality product.
Omega-3 Vida is tasteless, purified from heavy metals and additionally enriched with astaxanthin. 10 ml contain 1150 mg EPA and 1000 mg DHA.
EPA, DHA and omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids that are essential for the human body, i.e. they cannot be produced by the body itself. In the past, these fatty acids were also called vitamin F. Omega-3 fatty acids are mainly found in algae, plants and fish. Algae and plants contain the omega-3 acids mainly in the form of α-linolenic acid, while in oily fish and krill they are mainly present as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).
Bioavailability of omega-3 fish oil and the triglyceride content (TG value)
In natural fish oil, all fatty acids are in triglyceride structure, also called triacylglycerol or glycerol triester. There are 3 fatty acids on one glycerol. In the course of concentration, the triple structures are broken up (esterified), unwanted fatty acids are removed and then reassembled into triglyceride However, the conversion back into triglycerides is time-consuming and cost-intensive. This is why most manufacturers today only offer the artificial ester form (ethyl ester). However, this has no value for the body, as it is not bioavailable. The triglyceride content therefore says something about the quality of the concentrate and can be measured as the TG value in the product. The higher the triglyceride content (TG value), the better the absorption or bioavailability of the triglycerides in the intestine. Optimal would be 100%. Omega-3 Vida has a triglyceride content of at least 90% in the concentrate. A good value compared to conventional fish oils with 50-70%!
Good for the brain, eyes and heart
Omega-3 Vida has a high content of omega-3 fatty acids. These have the following functions, among others:
- EPA and DHA contribute to normal heart function & nbsp; (from 250 mg EPA and DHA daily = 1/8 tablespoon Omega-3 Vida).
- DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function (from 250 mg DHA daily = 1/4 tablespoon).
- DHA helps maintain normal eyesight & nbsp; (from 250 mg DHA daily = 1/4 tablespoon).
- DHA and EPA contribute to normal blood pressure. (from 3 g DHA and EPA daily = 1 1/2 tablespoons. Do not take more than 5 g DHA and EPA per day!)
If pregnant or breastfeeding women take DHA, it contributes to the normal development of the eyes and brain in the foetus or breastfed infant. Condition: The mother must take 250 mg of DHA and EPA daily and an additional 200 mg of DHA (= 1/4 tablespoon of Omega-3 Vida), but must not take more than a maximum of 450 mg of DHA and EPA.
Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation is particularly important for
- People whose eating habits rarely include fatty fish or krill.
- People for whom the good condition of eyes, heart and brain is an important criterion.
What is the difference between fish oil and linolenic acid from algae and plants?
The adult body can partially convert the α-linolenic acid found in algae or plants into EPA and DHA, but only in small amounts. Only about 10% of alpha-linolenic acid is converted to EPA and DHA at all. Therefore, it can be useful to take in omega-3 fatty acids in the form of krill or fish oil.
What is astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is a physiologically active carotenoid related to beta-carotene, zeaxanthin and lutein. Astaxanthin is responsible for the reddish colour in our fish oil.
What are the benefits of Omega-3 Vida?
- High concentration: We have a concentration of 2750 mg omega-3 fatty acids per 10 ml (= 1 tablespoon)
- Astaxanthin: Omega-3 Vida contains 1 mg of pure astaxanthin per tablespoon
