NUIQUE's new omega 3 supplement contains high levels of EPA & DHA, 500mg, the active ingredients only found in oily fish and algae. It's naturally low in Omega 6 and saturated fats and we don't add additional Omega 6 in the form of Sunflower oil or Sunflower lecithin.
We feel it's about time the lid is lifted on supplements that boast of 'a complete Omega 3' or 'Omega 3,6,9' or stating 1000mg Omega 3 when only 400mg are EPA/DHA, what's the rest in the capsule?? Many consumers are fooled into thinking they are getting a superior Omega 3 product.
Why should I just take pure Omega 3 EPA & DHA and not Omega 3,6 & 9?
It's very simple and straightforward yet can be the source of confusion to many people.
A lot of people think if they are taking Omega 3,6,9 that they are taking a more 'complete' Omega.
Omega 9, the human body can make itself , so you dont need any extra.
And 100 years ago people died from omega 6 deficiency, that's no longer the case today. Omega 6 although essential for survival is abundant within a variety of foods we eat. Here are just a few foods with high amounts of omega 6 fats:
French fries, Sunflower oil, Corn oils, all oils, nuts, seeds, cakes crisps/ chips, fried chicken, fried foods, red meat, snack bars, milk /eggs, cakes. Even olive oil contains 12% OM6!
What is important to remember is the balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Too much Omega 6 is detrimental to the absorption of Omega 3 and has a negative effect on your health.
The ratio should be around 1:1 to 4:1 (Omega 6 to Omega 3) but in typical Western diets it can be anything from around a staggering 50:1 in favour of the Omega 6, which would account for the rise in obesity and heart disease amongst many other conditions. The Western diets contain far too much omega 6, so you really don't need to take any more in supplement form.
Why take Omega 6 with Omega 3 when they compete with each other for absorption within the body? Omega 6 always wins. You may as well not bother with an Omega 3 at all, it's just money down the drain.
Too much Omega 6 will only go into storing in the body where we don't want it, around the stomach in most cases!
Where does Omega 3 store? In the brain, eyes and heart.
Omega 3 versus Omega 6
There are many differences between Omega 3 and Omega 6, for instance:
- kick starts the metabolism
- reduces fat cells
- activates the body to burn fat
- can only store in small amounts
Conversely, Omega 6 offers the following:
- reduces the metabolism
- boots bigger fat cells
- activates the body to store fat
- stores in substantial amounts.
Humans cannot manufacture long chain Omega 3 EPA & DHA, they have to get it from their diet by consuming either oily fish or an algae oil supplement.
Algae are the source of long chain essential fatty acids (PUFA's) and fish obtain Omega 3 from their diet of algae. When we created Nuique Vegan omega 3, we went straight to the source and bypassed the fish.
The future without question, should be algae derived Omega 3, why? It's pure, unadulterated and 100% natural, great for all the family, and is especially important for expectant and breastfeeding mothers. NUIQUE OM3 is guaranteed to be free of toxins, heavy metals and PCB's because it's grown in a controlled pharmaceutical grade facility, away from the sea. Therefore customers can be sure of the highest quality and purity of our algae oil without having to take a fish oil.
