Omega-3 fish oil supplements contain EPA and DHA which are known to contribute to the normal functioning of the heart, plus maintenance of normal vision and brain function.
Pharma Nord’s Bio-Marine Plus even contains Folic Acid and vitamin B12 – a vitamin combination that contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism and psychological functions. Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), are vital to the normal functioning of the body, which belong to several different chemical families. The fat in fish contains so called Omega 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.
Fish get Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) from eating plankton. The colder the water they live in, the higher their Omega 3 PUFA content. Pharma Nord therefore uses coldwater fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel which provide the highest levels of Omega 3 PUFAs unlike cod liver oil capsules.
