Spotlight On: Garden of Life Omega-3 Supplements

Do you know what omega-3 supplements could be doing for you?

 

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids – so-called because of the essential role they can play in supporting your health and wellbeing.

 

Oily fish like tuna, salmon and mackerel are one of the main sources of omega-3, but if you don’t like it or don’t eat much of it, omega-3 supplements are a handy way to top up your intake. They typically contain two types of omega-3: DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).

 

DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and brain function, while a 250mg daily dose of DHA and EPA can contribute to the normal function of the heart and to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.

At Garden of Life, traceability is at the heart of all our products and that extends to our omega-3 range. We are committed to harvesting fish that are abundant in the wild and never endangered. The fish we use are wild, fresh-caught fish that have been sustainably harvested in pristine waters.

 

Here, we take a look at the different omega-3 supplements available in our range, including omega-3 for women’s health needs, pregnant women and omega-3 for kids:

 

1. Omega-3 Softgels

 

Garden of Life DHA Softgels contain 1,000mg of DHA per softgel to help support your health and wellbeing.

 

 

This high-quality, high-potency DHA formula is made using a fully traceable, sustainably sourced formula made from anchovies that contains compounds known as SPMs (Specialized Pro-Resolving Mediators), which are known to naturally support normal inflammatory responses in the body.

 

2. Oceans 3 Beyond Omega-3 Softgels

 

Our Garden of Life Oceans 3 Beyond Omega-3 Softgels contain 1.3mg of omega-3 per softgel, including 675mg of EPA and 450mg of DHA for benefits including heart health and brain support.

 

 

Our Oceans 3 formulas are the only fish oil brand made with Omega-Xanthin®, which is a blend of ultra-pure, high-potency fish oil rich in both EPA and DHA, combined with 4mg astaxanthin from sea algae and 1mg concentrated fucoxanthin from brown seaweed.
