  • .
  • Packaging. To preserve the quality of the active ingredient, omega-3 acids should be in dark packaging.

Which omega-3 acids to choose? Expert advice

Pharmacist Ilona Krzak shares advice on what to look for when choosing an omega-3 supplement.

There are six considerations you should take into account:

.

Source of acids

.

Pose for omega-3 supplements from wild fish. A reliable manufacturer will indicate which fish the fatty acids come from (e.g. anchovy). Using "fish oil" in the description of a supplement makes it impossible to assess whether they are, for example, species prone to heavy metal contamination.

.
Fish living in the wild eat algae and produce their own omega acids, whereas farmed fish contain less of them because they are 'artificially' fed, often with questionable quality feed.
.

.
.

Additional active ingredients

.

Some additional ingredients nicely complement omega-3 fatty acids, e.g. vitamin D3, whose deficiency is common in Polandand others fat-soluble vitamins - vitamin A and vitamin E.

Omeega-3 fatty acids are easily oxidised, so to prevent this, manufacturers add antioxidants (antioxidants) to supplements - this is also a valuable ingredient.

.
Natural antioxidants worth noting include vitamin E or rosemary leaf extract.

.
.

Adequate daily dose 

.

An adult should consume 250 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) + docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) dailyand.

Some multi-ingredient dietary supplements (e.g. omega-3 + vitamin D3 + K2 Mk7) may contain less than 250 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per daily serving, due to the universal 'build-up' of ingredients.

On the other hand, if you want to give your child omega-3s, carefully check the content per serving to avoid overdoing it.

.
Drinking larger amounts of omega acid supplements - more than 1,000 mg EPA+DHA does not make sense, as the body gets rid of the excess.

TOTOX

.

TOTOX (Total Oxidation) is a measure used to determine the stability of fish fats, to assess quality and to determine their degree of oxidation. The higher the index, the greater the risk that the fish fats are stale or oxidised. A low TOTOX index value indicates high quality fish fats that are fresh and not oxidisedand

According to the European Food Safety Authority, the TOTOX index should be ≤ 26 .

TOTOX is based on two measurementsand

.
  • PV (Peroxide Value) - an indicator of the peroxide value, which is the first stage of fat oxidation. 
  • pAV (Anisidine Value) - measures secondary aldehydes, which are products in further oxidation stages.

The formula for TOTOX is 2PV + pAV. The lower the value, the fresher the oil. A score of less than 26 is considered good and means that the fish fats are fresh and low in oxidation.

Formula.

Form of dietary supplement

.

The omega-3 fatty acids in emulsified form are better absorbed than in pure form, e.g. from ordinary oiland. An emulsified oil is one that has been mixed with water and an emulsifier, so that it forms a stable emulsion. 

This emulsified liquid can be consumed in capsules or from a bottle. Which will be better for you?

  • Fewer chances of unnecessary ingredients.
  • Less chance of unnecessary ingredients in the formulation.
  • Less chance of unnecessary ingredients in the formulation.
  • Increasingly, manufacturers are offering small capsules of the type easy to swallow.

  • .

Fishing with fish? There's a solution

Some people complain of unpleasant bouncing and a fishy aftertaste after taking omega-3 fatty acids (mainly in capsules). You can avoid this by taking the supplement at the beginning of a hearty meal, such as lunch. However, be careful with fibre - it worsens the absorption of the active substances.

Packaging

.

Happily, it is becoming increasingly rare, but there are still dietary supplements with omega-3 fatty acids in transparent packaging (e.g. OstroVit Omega-3). Omega-3 fatty acids are sensitive to oxidation when exposed to light and temperature, so choose dark packaging and preferably keep the product in a cabinet or box in a cool place.

Certificates

.

Some manufacturers boast about the certification of their products.

Certifications are welcome:

.
  • GMP certification - provides independent verification and certification of adherence to basic manufacturing practices,
  • .
  • IFOS™ Certificate (International Fish Oil Standards Program) - verifies the quality of omega-3 in dietary supplements.
  • Certified by the International Fish Oil Standards Program.
  • Certificate of origin of raw material.
  • .

Such products may command a higher price because the oil processing technology or quality raw material is more expensive.

.

Summary

.

Choose products that are of high quality and in a daily portion that will cover your needs for omega-3 fatty acids. Supplementation should be pleasant and convenient. It is welcome if the manufacturer is certified.

Omega-3 or omega 3-6-9?

.

When choosing between omega-3 fatty acid supplements and omega 3-6-9, the better choice would be omega-3 fatty acids alone, as the deficiency in the population is in these acids, and omega-6 and -9 are usually consumed in excessand.

The use of type 3-6-9 supplements can do more harm than good. Distorting the healthy ratio of omega fatty acids limits the availability of omega-3s to the body, as they compete with other fats for absorption in the bodyand

.

.
Supplementation with omega 3-6-9 supplements is unnecessary. Omega-9 acids are produced by your body, and by taking omega-3 and omega-6 in addition, you may unknowingly create a large imbalance between the two, which adversely affects your health.
Dr Witold Tomaszewski.

Omega-3 or cod liver oil?

.

Tran is the concentrated liver oil of Atlantic cod or other fish of the cod familyand. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A and vitamin D3.

Don't be fooled!

.

Dietary supplements made from shark liver, anchovy, krill or whale are oilsnot cod liver.

Both omega-3 supplements and tran can replenish valuable fats in your diet. Following the tips above, pay attention to the quality of the raw material and the composition of the product. Often a good quality omega-3 supplement will be as good a choice as cod liver oil.

Möller's fricot harmful?

.

Many people are looking for information about the harmfulness of Möller's Trane, but there is nothing wrong with it. The concern should be about the tranium itself, as it contains huge amounts of vitamin A. You can unknowingly overdose it, leading to serious health consequencesand. Any tranium will harm you if you do not supplement sensibly.

Omega-3s for vegans

.

Vegetarians and vegans who avoid eating fish and other zoonotic products may find it difficult to maintain optimal levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their diets. Plant-based sources of omega-3s are rich in ALA, and you still need DHA and EPAand to be happy.

If you are on a plant-based diet, look for products for vegans with omega-3s derived from marine algae oil (usually Schizochytrium). Look out for the capsule shell, which in the vege version should be made from vegetable cellulose (V-Caps), hydroxypropyl starch, corn starch or tapiocaand.

Recommended  omega-3 acids for vegans are Dr. Jacob's DHA-EPA + Vitamin E.

What do omega-3 fatty acids give you?

.

Omeega-3 acids are multitaskers. They are essential for the proper functioning of systems and organs in the body, which is why it is so important to get them regularly with your food.

Omega-3 fatty acidsand:

    .
  • support the function of the nervous, cardiovascular, immune, neurological systems,
  • .
  • maintain joint, muscle and bone health,
  • .
  • influence brain and vision development in infants,
  • .
  • reduce the risk of autoimmune diseases and cancer,
  • .
  • influence the healthy appearance of the skin,
  • .
  • reduce inflammation in the body,
  • .
  • promote proper sleep,
  • .
  • influence body performance,
  • .
  • improve athletic performance,
  • .
  • reduce the risk of depression and anxiety disorders,
  • .

Supplementation of omega-3

.

The most omega-3 fatty acids are contained in oily marine fish such as mackerel, sardines, salmon, herring or rainbow troutand. Unfortunately, fish consumption by Poles is low - we eat an average of 14 kg of fish, while the average Norwegian eats around 46 kg per year .

.

People on vegetarian and vegan diets are also not getting enough omega-3s for themselves. Plant sources of these fatty acids are not as well absorbed as animal sourcesand.

.

Therefore, if you are not eating the recommended amount of fish per week (1-2 portions, or about 300g of fish ) or you are on a plant-based diet - consider purchasing a fish or marine algae supplement with omega-3 fatty acids.
