A brief explanation of good fats: PUFA & Omega-3

Firstly let's look at fats. We consume three types of fats within our diets: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated.
Polyunsaturated fats are considered to be good fats, and indeed are classed as "essential fatty acids" (PUFAs). The key PUFAs are Omega-3 and Omega-6 (the ‘omega’ and the ‘3’ or ‘6’ relate to their chemical structures).

Our Omega‑3 offers an alternative to fish for Omega‑3

Fish is the main source of Omega-3 in our diet and indeed most Omega-3 supplements are fish oils. This is because Fish contains omega-3 in the forms of EPA & DHA, which are the forms required by the body. Experts recommend pregnant and breast feeding women limit their oily fish intake to 2 portions per week, due to the possible presence of possibly harmful contaminants including mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) or even dioxins.

Omega-3 is made using Algal Omega-3 and contains EPA & DHA. The high strength formula is a viable, 100% pure, 100% contaminant-free alternative to fish oil. It is perfect for Mums and Mums to be.
