Omega-3 Softgel

While too much fat and the wrong types can be harmful, ‘good’ fats are essential for optimal health and performance.

In addition to being a valuable source of protein and various vitamins and minerals, fish can also be an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids (n-3s), a form of polyunsaturated fat. These play a vital role in many important functions in the body, including the regulation of the nervous system, blood pressure, blood clotting, glucose tolerance, and inflammatory processes. The consumption of Omega 3s has been shown to offer numerous benefits, from reducing the risk of developing conditions such as heart disease (13) to enhancing recovery from exercise (4), fat burning (11) and building muscle (1).

There are several different types of Omega-3s, but the majority of scientific research focuses on three: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It is the EPA and DHA which have the most direct health benefits.

The most abundant sources of these are found in the oils of shellfish, cold-water herring, anchovies, sardines, mackerel, and sea mammals. Unfortunately, the majority of the UK population does not consume enough fish, particularly oily fish. Often this is due to a dislike of its taste and smell.

Omega-3 softgel capsules provide you with an easy to consume way of obtaining the many benefits provided by these essential fatty acids with no taste or odour.
