Omega 3 Support from the Natural Health Practice is a high strength quality fish oil capsule. Two capsules contain 770mg of EPA and 510mg DHA (in some cases this is more than twice the levels found in other brands). Omega 3 Support is made from ultra pure wild deep-sea fish (no farmed fish are used) with fish gelatin capsules (instead of standard bovine capsules). Only small fish like anchovies and sardines used no large fish like tuna which can carry high levels of heavy metals like mercury. Each batch is screened for contaminants e.g. dioxins, PCBs, mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium. Omega 3 Support fish oil is derived from the body of the fish not the liver, which can be the most polluted and contaminated part of the fish.
The fish oil in Omega 3 Support in its natural triglyceride form for optimum absorption unlike many high street fish oils which are in the ester or phospholipid form. It also contains vitamin E which has antioxidant properties to prevent it going rancid. Essential fats ‘oil’ the body by lubricating the joints and skin, as well as being a vital component of every human cell. Your body needs them to balance hormones, insulate nerve cells, keep the skin and arteries supple and to keep the body warm. Your body cannot manufacture Omega 3 essential fatty acids - that is why they are called ‘essential’ because they have to come from your diet or from supplements
Both EPA and DHA contained in good levels in Omega 3 Support contribute to the normal function of the heart and they also contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure and DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function.
With Omega 3 Support there is no fishy aftertaste, they are easy to swallow, and they are safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding. DHA in particular is important for pregnant women especially in the last trimester, as DHA is needed for healthy brain growth and development of the baby during pregnancy.
