When we see ‘Omega‑3’ splashed across product labelling we immediately feel good, and rightly so. Omega-3s are known as essential fatty acids for a reason! However, there is a world of difference between Omega-3s and it does lead to individuals believing they are getting benefits when they may not be.
Omega‑3 is Vegetology’s Omega‑3 supplement,a plant-based alternative source of Omega‑3 DHA and EPA. It’s easy to see why this supplement is a great choice if you follow a plant-based vegan or vegetarian diet, but Omega‑3 is actually a great choice for everyone! We caught up with Chris Smith, co-founder of Vegetology, scientist and self-confessed science geek to find out why this is the case.
The term ‘Omega‑3’ might sound like it belongs in sci-fi movie, but Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). The term Omega‑3 describes the structure (for those interested, its due to the presence of a double bond three atoms away from the terminal methyl group. OK, I’ll get back to the lab!). Omega-3s are essential for our health.
Have you noticed that everyone is talking about Omega‑3? We asked scientist and co-founder of Vegetology (and self-confessed science geek) Chris Smith to give you the lowdown on Omega‑3 – what are they, where do you find them and are they really all they’re hyped up to be? We also wanted to know what foods are rich in Omega‑3 fatty acids and how we can include more in our diet.
Smart phones, time management apps, online shopping, a connected world where you can find a restaurant or take away at the touch of a button… we live in an age of convenience. It is easier than ever before to get information or book tickets, dinner and activities. But the downside of this super-paced lifestyle is that it can feel like we are being stripped of our energy.
