Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. Our body requires omega-3 fatty acids for a number of normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain. Since our bodies cannot produce omega-3 fats, we must get them through food and food supplements.
The fish oil in Biopure Omega 3® is derived from the highest purity fish and is thoroughly purified from any contaminants. It contains at least 30% omega-3 fatty acids as EPA and DHA, the two predominant and essential fatty acids that are responsible for the many health benefits.
The Biopure Omega 3® softgel capsules are chewable and specially formulated to contain deodorized fish oil, so as to avoid the “fishy” taste. They have a fruity flavour and are suitable for children.
What are Biopure Omega 3® softgels for?
Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with many health benefits including:
- Protection against heart disease and possibly stroke.
- Can lower elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
- May reduce the symptoms of ADHD in some children and improve their mental skills.
- May alleviate stiffness and joint pain.
- Maternal intake contributes to the normal visual and neurological development of the foetus and breastfed infants.
Some research suggests that omega-3s may help protect against Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging
