Omega 3 Pure EPA 1g
High-dose omega 3 EPA, providing 1g per capsule, to support your heart and active lifestyle.
What is Omega 3 Pure EPA 1g?
As far back as the 16th century, fish oil has been noted for its health benefits, at least among English fishermen who would use it to treat a wide range of ailments while out at sea. Now science has shown that fish oils do have health benefits, in particular EPA and DHA, the long-chain omega 3 fatty acids.
Both EPA (short for eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are known to be beneficial for heart health.* And more recently, there’s been an increasing amount of research into the anti-inflammatory effects of EPA, with some studies suggesting that high doses could lower inflammation in the joints after exercise, making it potentially important for anyone who enjoys being physically active. While it’s important to point out that as yet the EU hasn’t yet approved this last claim, there’s a growing amount of research in this area.
Why is ours better?
Unlike many omega 3 fish oil capsules, ours contain 1g pure EPA, which is the fatty acid that experts recommend to support an active lifestyle.
We only take our fish oil from sustainable sources of coastal pelagic fish, such as sardines, anchovies, herring and mackerel. These species contain a naturally higher concentration of EPA fatty acid. The oil is also highly distilled to remove pollutants and saturated fats, leaving only the good stuff.
Plus, we flavoured the capsule shells with natural lemon flavour because not everyone likes a fishy taste.
Who is this for?
Omega 3 is widely regarded by nutrition experts as a daily essential, particularly if you don’t eat oily fish on a regular basis. Omega 3 Pure EPA 1g also is especially ideal for those who have an active lifestyle.
*The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg EPA and DHA.
