Fish oils are a fundamental component of the diet that provides us with a major source of the essential fatty acids EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid, and DHA, docosahexaenoic acid. Being "essential" means these long chain fatty acids cannot be produced by the body alone and must therefore be consumed in the diet. Our Omega-3 and Fish Oil collection is perfect for active individuals, as the wide selection of fish oil supplements available have been shown to help maintain healthy joints, blood cholesterol levels and normal cardiac function, thus contributing to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke incidence.
Vital fish oils such as omega-3, krill oil and cod liver oil are primarily obtained in the diet through consuming oily fish. In order to see the many benefits of fish oil, the Department of Health recommends that all individuals should eat at least one portion of oily fish a week. They also suggest that omega-6 and omega-3 oils should be consumed in a 2:1 ratio, nevertheless intakes are currently approximated at a 20:1 ratio. This implies that a large proportion of people fail to meet the guideline requirement for omega-3 and, for that reason alone, a fish oil supplement should be a number one priority in any diet.
