Omega 3 Supplements

Why are omega 3 supplements so important to us

It is estimated that 85% or more of people in the Western world are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and most get far too much of the omega-6 fatty acids. Vegetarian diets, for example, tend to be very high in omega-6.

Seemingly minor differences in their molecular structure make the two EFA families act very differently in the body. Although we do need both omega-3s and omega-6s it is becoming increasingly clear that an excess of omega-6 fatty acids can have dire consequences. Our ancestors evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 1:1. (most of the omega 3 came from consuming fish ) A massive change in dietary habits over the last few centuries has changed this ratio to something closer to 20:1 and this spells trouble.

It is very important to read all of the information that is presented to you, these days every omega 3 supplement makes claims of the purest and strongest omega 3 fish oil on the market, you only need to look on the internet to see that this is the case.

Fish oil supplements Cod liver oil and fish oils are not the same. Cod liver oil is extracted from cod liver and is an excellent source of vitamins A and D. Fish oils are extracted from the tissues (flesh) of fatty fish like salmon and herring and are good sources of EPA. Fish oils contain very little vitamin A and D, but cod liver oil does contain EPA and DHA. However, the concentration and amounts of essential fatty acids that are found in fish oil supplements like cod liver oil are very very low. You would probably exceed the recommended daily intake of vitamins A and D if you were to try to obtain therapeutic amounts of EPA from cod liver oil.
