Pharm Nords Bio-Fish Oil contains the two important omega-3 fatty acids Docoshexaenoic acid (DHA)(120mg) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid(EPA)(180mg). Omega 3 fatty acids are essential in the formation of tissue membranes throughout the body. It is a good supplement to take for general well-being and there is a vast amount of scientific data to show the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids to health.Especially in the areas of cardiovascular disease and stroke, lupus and Crohn's disease, a number of cancers, mild hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis and menstruation discomfort. For a good level of omega-3 fatty acids rich in EPA and DHA, and for those people who do not wish to take a supplement contained in animal gelatine capsule, Bio-Fish Oil is an excellent choice of product.
Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), vital to the normal functioning of the body, belong to several different chemical families. The fat in fish contains so called omega-3 PUFAs (also known as n-3 PUFAs), which differ from omega-6 PUFAs found in vegetable oils. Omega-3 and omega-6 PUFAs have different roles in body metabolism. Fish oils contain about 50 different fatty acids, and are the main source of the omega-3 essential PUFAs eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA levels are very low (or absent) in domesticated land animals. The habitat in which the fish grow has a major influence on their fatty acid composition. The fish obtain omega-3 PUFAs by eating plankton, which in turn contain more omega-3 PUFAs the colder the sea water (cold water fish also have a higher fat content). Cold water fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel have the highest levels of omega-3 PUFAs. Farmed fish fed commercial fish food contain lower levels of omega-3 PUFAs.
