Omega 3 Fish Oils

Fish oils are a source of omega 3 essential fatty acids which are known for their anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. There are two essential fatty acids that the body cannot make and therefore have to be supplemented through our diet, omega 3 and omega 6.

Fish oils for joints provide us with two fatty acid components called EPA and DHA which are required for a healthy heart, brain and for joints. Unfortunately plant-based essential fatty acids cannot provide EPA and DHA and their source of essential fatty acids are converted inefficiently into EPA and DHA with one or two exceptions.

Though cod liver oil has been used for decades, there is controversy over its use primarily due to possible toxins which tend to accumulate in the liver. Oily fish such as sardines, mackerel and anchovies tend to be in favour as fish body oils tend to a cleaner source of omega 3 fatty acids.

Whist omega 3 fish oils tend to be the most popular choice, krill oil is gaining popularity due to the way in which the omega 3’s are presented. Krill oil provides these omega 3 essential fatty acids in a form that resembles cellular membranes ensuring greater availability to the body.

For vegans, the best source of omega 3’s is the use of Echiomega.
