Lamberts High Potency Fish Oils
One reason why omega 3’s are being researched so much is that for many people their dietary intake has fallen to a point that is low enough to be affecting their health. This is why the Government recommend that we eat some oily fish, such as mackerel, once a week, and many nutritionists think that it should be as often as twice or three times a week.
Ideally everyone should eat on average 2 to 3 grams of omega 3’s a day but it seems that few people achieve this level, especially if they eat little oily fish so supplementation is relevant for many.
But because they pretty much all look the same, it is often difficult for people to appreciate the difference in the potency of fish oil supplements on the market. The reality is that there is a huge difference! The omega 3 content, so important for health and well-being, can vary enormously and, amazingly, labels often don’t tell the full story. Some manufacturers still don’t list any omega 3 levels, let alone EPA and DHA content (often because the levels are so low!).
Providing 700mg of Omega 3’s per capsule
These capsules contain a concentrated fish oil which provides a full 700mg of Omega 3’s per capsule, (many 1000mg fish oil products contain just 350mg of Omega 3’s). This means that this product is one of the strongest available in the UK and is therefore widely recommended by practitioners. The fish oil undergoes a sophisticated purification process that ensures it is largely odour free, with levels of contaminants well below the strict EU maximum limits. The oil is then protected from oxidation while it is in the capsules by the inclusion of natural vitamin E.
The most beneficial ingredients in fish oil are the two Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Research has shown that Omegas 3’s play a vitally important part in maintaining our health and wellbeing and it is for this reason that fish oil supplements are regularly recommended by practitioners.
The official recommendation by the DoH is that people should consume two portions of oily fish per week to obtain sufficient Omega 3’s. This is good advice but one that is followed by relatively few people, and so the use of fish oil supplements is the best option for many.
