Battery Nutrition Omega 3
Battery Nutrition Omega 3 has a higher proportion of Omega-3 than standard Omega 3 supplements available on the market and is sourced from reliable European suppliers.
Each capsule contains concentrated Omega-3 rich in the essential fatty acids EPA, DHA and DPA derived solely from oily fish living in cold, fresh water.
EPA and DHA bear a multitude of scientifically proven beneficial effects not only proven by centuries of traditional medicine, but have been recognized by the European Food Safety Authority as well.
The polyunsaturated fatty acids found in Battery Nutrition Omega 3 may only be supplemented exogenously through a healthy diet or supplementation.
Most people ingest too little omega-3 through usual diet (eat too little fish) and therefore need a supplement.
- 1000 mg of highly concentrated fish oil
- Documented effects approved by the EFSA
- Supports healthy heart, brain, eyes and joints.
- The content comes from controlled waters.
- 100% beef gelatine capsule
- 40% Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 is a type of fatty acid that is essential for normal growth and development of the body. As the body itself is unable to produce it, it must be obtained from food.
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated, meaning that they have two or more double bonds, and are characterized by having the first double bond in the third carbon atom.
Several types of omega-3 exist: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), both coming from animal sources, as well as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is essentially found in vegetable sources.
The body is able to convert ALA into EPA and DHA.
The best omega-3 sources are:
- Oily fish (e.g. tuna, salmon, sardine, anchovy, trout, mackerel)
- Cod liver oil
- Canola and flaxseed oil
- Soy beans and tofu
- Nuts and seeds (e.g. flaxseed, chia)
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the body to function properly. These fatty acids intervene in the production of inflammatory mediators that modulate the body’s inflammatory response.
The balance of inflammatory mediators – such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes, thromboxanes and platelet aggregation factors – interferes with the inflammatory processes and thus regulates the emergence of allergies as well as inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases.
The intake of omega-3 fatty acids helps reduce pro-inflammatory factors as well as synthesize anti-inflammatory factors.
Beside this effect, omega-3 helps prevent cellular degeneration and the development of certain types of cancer, in particular colon, breast and prostate cancer.
