MorEPA Smart Fats Fish Oil
Omega 3 is a very broad subject with much confusion surrounding it, with both good and bad advice that has been given about it. One thing is for sure though, Omega 3s are an essential part of any diet for everyone. Omega 3 fatty acids are best provided through a fish based diet, but due to the Western lifestyle food choices are invariably decided by what is readily available and easily consumable. For this reason, it can be said that
consistently eating a fish based diet is a challenge. Western diets are predominantly based around meats and dairy products which are high in omega 6 fatty acids and contains negligible amounts of omega 3 EPA and DHA. A diet high in omega 6 fatty acids can lead to potential health problems due to it’s ability to promote inflammation.
It is agreed that a good source of omega 3 fatty acids is best obtained through eating fish such as mackerel, anchovies and sardines which have high levels of omega 3 EPA/DHA , lower levels of contaminants and pollutants and also go some way in providing other nutrients and vitamins such as B, D, calcium and iron to name a few. If eating 2-3 portions of oily fish, rich in omega 3 is a challenging task then the optimum amount of EPA/ DHA can be achieved by taking an MorEPA Smart Fats supplement. Raising your Omega 3 Index , the amount of EPA and DHA (anti-inflammatory) that you have in your blood serum compared to omega 6 (pro-inflammatory) can be difficult at best with some omega 3 supplements. It can be very difficult to choose a supplement as the majority of companies supplying fish oil supplements make open-ended claims, especially related to concentration levels, science, purity, quality of oil and efficacy. Few companies are as good as their claims, with many being opportunistic in a food supplement market which has wide boundaries. Each company claims to have the the most omega 3, the highest omega 3 concentration and the purest fish oil, but usually companies are making claims that are unsubstantiated and misleading consumers to making an ‘uninformed’ purchasing decision. EPA and DHA are both essential fatty acids which should be sought from our diet as our body requires these fatty acids to function optimally yet can not produce them itself without a precursor such as ALA, yet the conversion is very low. EPA is known to be anti-inflammatory and help improve mood whereas DHA is best for the development of the brain, optic nerves and for the fluidity of the cells. It is fundamental that fish oil supplements have high levels of EPA and DHA and are delivered via a suitable method which increase bioavailability.
When choosing an omega 3 fish oil supplement it is important to look out for the ‘actual’ contents of EPA and DHA (mg) per one soft-gel. Watch out, as most figures represent ‘per serving’ which could include 4-8 capsules. The actual amount of EPA and DHA in a fish oil can be difficult to ascertain with many companies advertising ‘1000m’ which usually only contains 20-50% omega 3 fatty acid (EPA/DHA). This is not the true figure, and the ingredients list always tells a better picture. There are some supplements which are highly concentrated such as those provided by Minami Nutrition, particularly the MorEPA range which have concentration levels between 75-95%, perfect for increasing one’s omega 3 index in a small dosage of one soft- gel.
A perfect Omega 3 product to start with would be MorEPA Smart Fats, MorEPA Smart Fats is a product that has a high amount of EPA with some DHA per capsule, 580mg and 80mg respectively, the concentration of the product is 75% and the purity is second to none due to its patented extraction process (Super Critical CO2 Distillation) and conforming to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practise) standards. MorEPA can help maintain a healthy balance of Omega-3 : Omega-6 in your body, as having an imbalance is one of the main reasons for the rise of inflammation, depression, a lack of concentration and building up of arterial plaque. MorEPA Smart Fats is an ideal supplement to be taken to help prevent future problems caused by a lack of Omega 3. MorEPA Smart Fats are ideal for older children and adults due to the capsule, although the capsule can be opened and the contents added to foods like yoghurts, fruit smoothies, rice, fruit juices, etc. MorEPA has an added natural orange taste to it to add to the flavour, resulting in no fishy after taste or fishy burps. Unlike other EPA and DHA products on the market MorEPA Smart Fats will give you a sufficient amount of EPA and DHA in just one capsule to help with an imbalance of Omega 3, it is only when a therapeutic amount of which is needed that a more highly concentrated Omega 3 product would be required. Minami Nutrition provide not only MorEPA but a prestigious range of products, including MorEPA Plus + and PlusEPA, these products have been scientifically designed to help with problems that have been brought on by the lack of Omega 3s, such as, ADHD, severe depression, sports related recovery, inflammation induced conditions and arterial plaque build up associated with strokes.
