Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, which means that they must be acquired through the diet since the body is not able to synthesize them by itself, which makes their main source of obtaining them nutritional. In turn, this family of fatty acids is composed of ALA as the progenitor from which the others, EPA and DHA, are obtained.
What is it for?
However, the conversion of this fatty acid known as ALA to EPA and DHA is very limited, especially in modern omnivorous diets, which implies the need for its consumption with the diet or in many cases as a supplement.
Currently, dietary recommendations are not listened to by most of the population, choosing foods with low quality and unhealthy fats and establishing a very poor omega 3: omega 6 ratio, so that the amount of omega 3 is not commensurate with optimal health.
Omega-3 fatty acids have very important biological functions as they help form tissues such as the retina or nerve tissue, help control inflammation, regulate triglycerides and other metabolic parameters, so that inadequate consumption can be detrimental to health.
The omega 3 supplements usually come from fish oil, since oily fish are a good source of this fatty acid in sufficient quantity and quality.
However, we commonly find in the market omega-3 fatty acids that do not meet the criteria of the highest quality, as these are presented in its ethyl-éster form; however, although this form is stable has a lower bioavailability than in the form of triglycerides, so the amount of these acids that is absorbed is lower and therefore, its benefits at the same dose are lower because there is a worse digestibility.
In turn, despite finding a product in its most natural form which is triglycerides, it is important that this product is not oxidized, since this would mean a less assimilable product and with negative consequences for health. In this sense, a meticulous choice of raw material together with the IFOS cutting-edge certificate, ensures a highly bioavailable omega 3 and the highest quality that has been subjected to strict tests and that certify it as the most bioavailable and free of oxidized compounds negative for health.
For all this, within the current criteria that guarantee the quality of a good omega 3, Omega 3 can be placed as a top of the range, meeting the highest standards of nutritional quality and technology that the current scientific evidence places us.
