Softgel food supplement capsule with highly concentrated and purified fish oil containing essential unsaturated fatty acids (DHA and EPA). Fish oil from pelagic fishes (anchovies) sourced from sustainable fishing.

Regular consumption of fish is the best way to supply the body with some of the most valuable fatty acids. This group includes essential omega-3 fatty acids, which have an anti-inflammatory effect and contribute to the proper functioning of the heart, circulatory system, brain and eyesight[1,2].

Our body cannot produce omega-3, so we have to consume them regularly. Omega-3 fatty acids are built into cell membranes in all tissues of the body, which is why they are so important for maintaining health [3]. They take part in the transmission of signals between cells, are responsible for the fluidity of the cell membrane and the maintenance of its structure [4]. Omega-3 acids support the functioning of the nervous system by regulating the work of the central nervous system and neurotransmitters [5]. They are necessary for the development of the brain and eyes, which is especially important for children, as well as by increasing the concentration of omega-3 acids in the brain to maintain normal cognitive functions in later age until old age [6]. Omega-3 acids are also responsible for the proper functioning of the retina, supporting your eyesight [7]. A high intake of omega-3 fatty acids contributes to the prevention of heart and circulatory system health through a positive effect on cholesterol levels, heart rhythm, platelet aggregation and anti-inflammatory effects[8].

The most valuable omega-3 fatty acids for health are eicosapentaenoicacid (EPA) and docosahexaenoicacid (DHA). The rich sources of these acids are mainly animal products: salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, eggs, oysters, as well as fish oil and algae oil. In order to cover the demand for these valuable acids, we should eat oily sea fish twice a week [9]. Our body can produce EPA and DHA from the essential unsaturated fatty acid ALA derived from plant products such as oil and linseed, rapeseed oil, chia seeds, walnuts, soybeans, spinach, sprouts. Unfortunately, this conversion is not always sufficient and relying only on ALA sources in the diet may lead to deficiencies [10].

We offer you a food supplement containing highly purified fish oil, rich in one of the highest doses of omega-3 EPA and DHA on the market. A daily serving of 2 capsules provides 2 g of pelagic fish oil from sustainable fisheries, and in it 1300mg of omega-3 fatty acids enriched with a delicious lemon aroma that reduces the fishy aftertaste. Thanks to this, you will provide your body with as much as 720 mg of DHA acid and 480 mg of EPA acid every day. Take care of your health prophylaxis with omega-3 acids!
