Omega 3 Fish Oil
Our Fish Oil contains high potency fatty acids (DHA-EPA) which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and circulatory system, and healthy, flexible joints. Omega 3 and Omega 6 need to be in balance with each other, yet modern diets, in particular widespread consumption of grains, tend to cause an imbalance in healthy fats with a bias towards Omega 6.
Cod Liver Oil or Whole Body Fish Oil?
It is certainly true that both cod liver oil and whole body fish oil are rich in omega 3, however there is a serious concern with the livers of oily fish. Pollutants in our oceans, in particular heavy metals, collect in the livers of oily fish. So we remove the livers and extract the oil from the whole body of the fish, which guarantees that our Vibrant Fish Oil is absolutely stable, clean and without any trace of heavy metals.
The Correct Ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6
Many Omega 3 products contain a lower than desired ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids, yet we need both in a ratio of about 1:1. Our ancestors ate diets of roughly equal quantities of omegas 3 and 6, which is why omega 3 has such an important role in human physiology. At that time the meat and eggs humans ate were free range, coastal dwellers had easy access to fish and more plant leaves were eaten, rich in omega 3, while grains, rich in omega 6, were rarely eaten.
With the advent of modern agriculture, the reduction in fish eating and the wide availability of convenience foods featuring grains and seed oils, the ratio of these two fatty acids has swung dramatically towards omega 6, and the ratio has gone from 1:1 up to 15:1. Our health is suffering as a result, with clear links to a wide range of physical and mental conditions. We should aim for a minimum of 2 – 3gms of omega 3 daily, and few people achieve this level especially if they seldom eat oil-rich fish.
This pure Omega 3 fish oil contains potent DHA-EPA fatty acids to help maintain heart health, good circulation and flexibility in our joints.
On average a capsule contains:
Omega 3 fatty acids
330 mg EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid)
220 mg DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid)
DHA is a vital component of the nervous system and is essential for maintaining it. It supports brain function and is important in the intellectual development of children. EPA and DHA from Fish Oils make up a large part of the lipids (fats) in the brain, which are essential to the development of tissue in the brain and eyes. A shortage of either fat has been linked to developmental and behavioural disorders. Supplementation can result in considerable improvement in both.
Fish oil is rich in Omega 3. These healthy fats help to reduce the risk of heart disease through various interactions, by:
Helping to form protective hormones
Inhibiting inflammatory potentiators
Lowering blood fat levels
Heart disease: Numerous studies have been conducted to explore the benefits of an increase of Omega 3 intake, particularly in terms of mortality. One particular study concluded that men who consumed salmon twice per week had a 70% less likelihood of suffering cardiac arrest in comparison to people eating no fish at all.
The Lungs - Both DHA and EPA are important for forming anti-inflammatory hormones. These provide many benefits including helping to prevent allergic reactions and respiratory diseases associated with inflammation.
The Skin - Consumption of fatty acids is vital for keeping the skin supple and youthful. A good intake can reduce dryness, premature aging and the formation of lines.
Fertility - DHA and EPA support healthy reproductive systems in both men and women.
Joints - Anti-inflammatory properties of fatty acids can help people suffering from joint disorders, including arthritis.
The Circulatory System - The fatty acids help with blood flow by making it less “sticky”. The anti-freezing effect of DHA and EPA is what prevents fish in frozen seas from dying. When consumed by humans the fats reduce the risk of blood clotting.
