The Ultimate Combination of Sea and Sun in Every Capsule
Omega-3s from the Sea
Everyone needs omega-3. The EPA and DHA fatty acids contribute to the normal function of the heart and brain. In fact, studies show that populations consuming high levels of omega-3 in seafood-rich diets are the least prone to the health concerns associated with the modern Western diet. However, it isn’t always easy to get the right amount of omega-3 on a daily basis, so many of us turn to supplementation.
Vitamin D from the Sun
Vitamin D deficiency has also become more common in the overall population. We are venturing outside far less often, and when we do go out, we’re often covered in layers of clothing or sun block. So, much like the case with omega-3s, supplementation has become a popular means of acquiring vitamin D.
Omega-3 fatty acids are an unsaturated fatty acid that your body needs to maintain good health. Omega-3 fatty acids come in several varieties, but the two believed to be most important are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). When it comes to these two fatty acids, getting enough is critical. Adding Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet is a sure-fire way to improve your overall health, especially your heart and brain health. For centuries, people got enough Omega-3s through their diets.
Omega-6s are important, but they compete with Omega-3s for space in our cells. Instead of a balance between the two, which is optimal for your health, our modern diet has created a ratio that ranges as high as 30:1 Omega-6 to Omega-3. This imbalance has given rise to many of the common health concerns associated with the Western diet. By contrast, our ancestors maintained a 1:1 ratio.
Your body doesn’t produce Omega-3, so you have to get it elsewhere.
Some fish species are rich in omega-3, but unfortunately contaminants and pollutants in fish can be a concern. Farm-raised fish are often grain fed and have more Omega-6 than Omega-3. You can get some Omega-3 from flaxseed, but your body has to convert this ALA form of Omega-3 to the more beneficial EPA/DHA. Unfortunately, our bodies aren’t very good at making this conversion, so it’s nearly impossible to obtain adequate EPA/DHA from flaxseed.
Fish oil supplements are a great way to help you meet your daily requirement and may provide the most EPA and DHA for your money.
