What is Opti-Omega® 3?
Fish oil omega 3 fatty acids are among those supplements most recommended by health professionals and nutrition experts because of their wide ranging and scientifically proven health benefits. There are several types of omega 3 fats but research shows that DHA and EPA, known as long-chain fatty acids, are the ones that we get most health benefit from.
Government research shows that most of us fall well short of the UK’s Food Standards Agency recommendation of eating two portions of fish every week, including one of oily fish. Healthspan’s Opti-Omega 3 is a highly concentrated, purified and easily absorbed fish oil that contains very high levels of omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA – the specific fatty acids which provide the well documented brain, heart and eye health benefits associated with omega 3*.
Why is ours better?
The clue here is the ‘Opti’, which means the formulation is optimised, using the very latest research, to allow your body to utilise the nutrients as quickly and efficiently as possible. Plus, it provides you with more DHA and EPA than standard fish oils.
It’s top quality. This purified omega 3 oil is double-distilled, using patented filter-pure technology to reduce unwanted saturated fats, cholesterol and pollutants to even lower levels than those found in fresh fish. What’s more, we’ve made sure there’s no odour or taste because we know that not everyone is a fish fan. The small and easy-swallow capsules also are ideal if you have swallowing difficulties.
Last but certainly not least, our Omega 3 oil is sustainably sourced from the South Pacific Ocean, and we’re very proud that our fish oil has been granted ‘Friend of the Sea’ certification, meaning it’s derived using methods that don’t over-exploit fish stocks, threaten the marine food chain, or harm the seabed or coral reefs.
