FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the key ingredients in Marine Omega?
Each daily dose of Marine Omega provides 200 mg of krill oil, an excellent source of EPA, DHA and phospholipids.
Marine Omega provides a total amount of 1 300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, containing 660 mg EPA and 440 mg
DHA. In addition, natural vitamin E is added as an antioxidant to protect the omega-3 fatty acids from oxidative
What are EPA and DHA?
Both EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids scientifically classified as nutrients important for human nutrition. EPA and DHA are important to the body because they are building blocks for other fatty acids needed by the body and many types of cells and tissues are comprised of these. Furthermore, EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart.
Why are omega-3 fatty acids important?
The omega-6 linoleic acid and the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid are two essential nutrients. As essential nutrients, they cannot be synthesised by the body, but must be ingested directly in the form of food or dietary supplements.
These fatty acids are necessary for different main functions in the body. However, in Western society, the ratio of intake of omega-6 fatty acids, to the intake of omega-3 fatty acids is too high and can lead to the formation of excess arachidonic acid and potentially bring the formation of unfavourable eicosanoid products in the body. Science now supports the importance of reducing the intake of omega-6 fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids in the diet.
What is the source of omega-3 fatty acids in Marine Omega?
Marine Omega provides a good quality of omega-3 fatty acids from fish and krill oil. The fish oil is derived from anchovies. Krill oil is derived from Euphausia superba, which are small shrimp or prawn-like crustaceans.
Can I get all of the omega-3 that I need in my diet alone?
People who eat fatty fish every day can get most of the omega-3 that they need. However, today most of the food is deprived of omega-3. Moreover, people eat less and less fish and more food rich in omega-6. The development of intensive agriculture and livestock has also led to the reduction of omega-3 in many foods such as green leafy vegetables, meats, eggs and even fish. Supplementation with fish oil is a convenient way to add omega-3 fatty acids into the daily diet.
