Omega-3 Fatty Acids: An Essential Contribution – Harvard, School of Public Health

It is always exciting to find a well written report or study regarding the very thing that you’re passionate about, particularly when you sell that very thing!

nuIQue offers Vegan Omega 3 to a market of health conscious individuals who make perhaps -disciplined – dietary choices.

Unfortunately though, there is misnomer that eating Flax or Chia Seeds will provide Omega 3. BUT… those seeds do not provide enough absorbable DHA & EPA required by the body!

If you do not eat oily fish, then what to do?

nuIQue was actually one of the first companies to market Vegan Omega 3, recognising a gap in the market for Vegan & Vegetarian Omega 3.

Oily fish only contain Omega 3 because they eat algae, so cut out the fish, and go straight to source!

It is now a growing fact that Omega 3 is ESSENTIAL to lower the risk of heart disease, visual and brain health – let alone the benefits in foetal development.

Here is an excellent article written by Harvard, School of Public Health regarding Omega 3, here is an excerpt

“What makes omega-3 fats special? They are an integral part of cell membranes throughout the body and affect the function of the cell receptors in these membranes. They provide the starting point for making hormones that regulate blood clotting, contraction and relaxation of artery walls, and inflammation. They also bind to receptors in cells that regulate genetic function. Likely due to these effects, omega-3 fats have been shown to help prevent heart disease and stroke, may help control lupus, eczema, and rheumatoid arthritis, and may play protective roles in cancer and other conditions.”
