Fish Oil vs Vegetable Oil: where does your Omega-3 come from?
Vegetable sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, such as Flax, ARE NOT SUITABLE as efficient supplements. Research has proven that the human body is unable to convert Alpha Linolenic Acid (LNA or ALA) found in vegetable sources into EPA/DHA in quantities sufficient enough to produce significant health benefits. Omega-3 Deluxe is derived from wild fish retaining the natural EPA/DHA ratio necessary for optimum health benefit - unlike other concentrated oils (oils concentrated in the laboratory to achieve artificially high EPA/DHA ratios).
Recent scientific research has demonstrated significant health benefits from diets containing sufficient quantities of Omega-3. However, the typical Western diet is alarmingly low in natural form Omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Furthermore, Omega-3 fatty acids naturally ‘compete’ with Omega-6 fatty acids to be transformed and synthesised within the human body. Again, the typical Western diet contains significantly more Omega-6 fatty acids, thus further reducing the health benefits derived from Omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 Deluxe can help restore the body’s natural Omega-3:Omega-6 ratio and increase the health benefits Omega-3 essential fatty acids have been proven to provide. Farmed fish sources also contain much lower concentrations of EPA/DHA and have potentially higher concentrations of toxins, such as mercury.

The cardiovascular system in particular has highlighted significant health improvements and outcomes, such as: reduction in blood pressure; increased coronary vessel blood flow; decreased cholesterol levels; decrease in incidence of primary and secondary myocardial infarction (heart attack); decrease in thromboembolic cardiovascular events (Strokes); and significant decrease in potential cardiovascular-related death overall. Further research studies have shown statistically significant health related
benefits to both young and old alike. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are fundamental to healthy body function at cellular, system and whole body level. Deficiencies in Omega-3 have been shown to be linked to a variety of illnesses, including: cardiovascular disease; gastrointestinal ailments such as Chrohns disease and Colitis; behavioural problems and cognitive impairment; musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis and osteoporosis.
