The two nutritionally important Omega-3s are:
- Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA): a long-chained fatty acid that is used by the body to form EPA and DHA. Often sourced from flaxseed oil
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Doscosahexaenoic acid (DHA): both are long-chained fatty acids. High concentrations are found in fish oil
Good sources of EPA and DHA come from small fish and tuna which provide a high concentration of these omega-3 fats. EPA and DHA do not require further metabolism, (like ALA) therefore are ready for our body to put to work.
- Higher DHA to EPA ratio aids in brain development and function, important for children, youth and seniors
- Higher EPA to DHA ratio promotes heart and cardiovascular health, important to adults and seniors.
All of Swiss’ Omega-3s and Wild Salmon Fish oils are sourced from wild, non-endangered fish. All are tested for traces of heavy metals, PCBs and toxins.
