Why Most People are Low in Omega 3s
There are many proven benefits of fish oil but unfortunately 3 out of 4 people are deficient in Omega 3s and are not enjoying these amazing benefits.
To experience these benefits, it is essential you get:
The correct dosage of fish oil,
The right type of fish oil and
Does it have enough DHA?
Let’s go through these key points
1/ Are you getting enough fish oil?
Recent studies show that in the United States women are only getting 40% of the recommended levels and men are only getting 50%. In fact, it could be up to 68% of adults are below the recommended levels
People who are interested in taking control of their health will generally look for fish oil supplements and that is most likely the reason why you are here.
The recommended dose is 250 – 500 mg of EPA and DHA combined. Always be sure the read the label to determine the quantities, but generally, a 1000 mg capsule will have around 300 mg combined EPA & DHA
Now one thing you need to be aware of is that not all supplements are created equal.
In order to assess the quality of a fish oil supplement, you will need to know what type a fish oil you are taking and also how much DHA it contains.
2/ Are you getting the right type or fish oil or Omega 3?
Most manufacturers when processing fish oils will subject the oil to high heat and this causes it to be converted to Ethyl Esters. They can then be re-converted back to triglyceride form but they are no longer natural and generally poorer in bio availability which means it cannot be properly absorbed and converted in the body.
It is important to look for a product that has been processed in such a way that it will deliver pure concentrated DHA an EPA in the natural triglyceride form. This is the most effective form of fish oil but it is rare among most supplement brands because it is technically challenging and expensive to make.
3/Are you getting enough DHA?
As mentioned before, DHA is the most complex form of Omega 3 and is difficult to consume in sufficient amounts because it is contained in very few food sources.
Things you need to consider when choosing your brand of fish oil.
Now I encourage you to do your own research and make sure the supplements are of the standard listed below ………

Here are some of the preferred Standards:
Does the manufacturer offer a blend of natural non-concentrated New Zealand fish oil combined with highly concentrated tuna oil, all from sustainable sources?
Do they have a enzymatic process in the production of fish oils that delivers pure, concentrated DHA and EPA in the NATURAL TRIGLYCERIDE FORM? This is the most effective form of fish oil and is rare among supplement brands because it is both technically challenging and expensive to make.
Are their fish oil supplements higher in DHA than EPA – the opposite of most other products on the market? Our recommended manufacturer’s supplements contain a generous 700 mg DHA per serve! DHA can easily convert to EPA if the body needs it but not the other way around.
