Fatty Acids are the basic structural units of Lipids. Lipid is the general term which refers to dietary fat. The body can synthesise many fatty acids. However, those which it cannot manufacture in adequate amounts must be obtained from the diet, and are termed Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Fatty acids can be saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated depending on the degree to which the basic carbon chain of the molecule is filled with hydrogen.
Prostaglandin, hormone-like substances in the body, are influenced by Omega-3 acids through a series of enzyme-dependent reactions. Prostaglandins functions include promoting smooth muscle contractions, regulating blood pressure and gastro secretions and influencing other hormones. Essential fatty acids are also important for normal growth, especially of blood vessels and nerves.
EFAs are found most abundantly in Fish Oils and unadulterated Seed Oils such as Rape Seed, Sunflower and Safflower Oil. Flaxseed Oil is an exceptional oil containing both essential fatty acids in appreciable amounts. Flaxseed, also known as Linseed, is one of nature’s richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Cold salt-water fatty fish such as herring, haddock, cod, mackerel and salmon are also rich in Omega-3 polyunsaturates and serve as the source of Fish Oil supplements.
This formulation provides a natural, concentrated source of the essential Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA from deep-sea, cold-water fish. EPA and DHA support cardiovascular, joint and immune health. The fish oil in this formulation is tested for optimum purity. It undergoes molecular distillation to remove mercury and other harmful contaminants.
