  • Miniguide: Omega 3

    The health benefits of consuming omega-3 fatty acids are widely known, the problem is that the general population consumes doses much lower than those recommended, so a correct supplementation will always be very useful, the problem is that all Omega 3 products are not the same.

    *Supplement needs:

    In the scientific community there is an established consensus on what dose you need to take:

    ❕500mg of combined DHA and EPA daily for healthy people.

    ❕1000mg if combined DHA and EPA for those with risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.

    ❕3-4gr combined of DHA and EPA for those who suffer from hypertriglyceridemia .

    Differences between products:

    ❗️The main difference is that most manufacturers use synthetic fish oil in the ethyl ester form, which has a worse absorption, is not the natural form of Omega 3 and is more unstable (they tend to go rancid).

    ❕Some manufacturers use plant derivatives such as alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), which does not have the same positive effects.

    ❕The best way to find a good fish oil is to choose a brand that contains the IFOS seal of quality.
