REAL FOODS > EVERY FOOD SUPPLEMENT!
We firmly believe that healthy, balanced and varied diets are the key to better health. We recommend assessing your before considering the use of dietary supplements.
However, due to our modern, busy lives and decreasing quality of the food available to us, high-quality dietary supplements still play an important role.
That's why we do what we do! Offering you a true, high-end product that is unparalleled in terms of purity and quality.
UNDERSTANDING FATTY ACIDS
Optimally, our body should have a ratio of 3:1 between omega-6 & omega-9 to omega-3 fatty acids.
Western eating habits and the strong and varied use of dietary fats with high omega-6 and omega-9 content in the food industry have negatively impacted this ratio. The easiest way to positively influence your omega-3 levels is therefore a reduced intake of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids.
Omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids promote the formation of "bad" eicosanoids. Among other things, these hormone-like substances can cause chronic inflammation in the human body and counteract your quest for better health and performance.
Unfortunately, a lot of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids are found in foods that are widely marketed as healthy. In terms of a balanced and healthy diet, we do not advise you to banish these foods completely. But perhaps think about the amount you consume, and reduce them.
I'LL JUST EAT ALL OF THE SALMON, THEN!
In theory, we’d recommend eating as much salmon as possible. Not only because it’s an excellent source of protein, but because its consumption promises a high intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
Sadly, most salmon products in supermarkets come from farmed salmon and don’t deliver on their omega-3 promise. The rearing takes place in dark tanks or fish enclosures and is accompanied by the typical characteristics of mass animal husbandry - overfeeding with grain-based pellets and the large-scale use of medicines.
In contrast to farmed salmon, whose meat must be coloured artificially through food colouring in their feed, the wild salmon gets its pink colour by eating just such small fish and crustaceans – which also contribute to the accumulation of omega-3 fatty acids.
So, whilst farmed salmon isn’t dangerous, its certainly not optimal and we’d always recommending opting for as much wild caught fish as your budget can afford.
WHAT ABOUT ALA?
As we know, omega-3 fatty acids belong to the group of essential fatty acids. This means primarily that our body needs these special fatty acids, but can’t produce itself and relies on them being supplied by our diet..
α-linolenic acid (ALA) is commonly found in foods such as flax and chia seeds.
Whilst ALA is a precursor to EPA and DHA, the conversion rate in our bodies is very low – typically less than 1% - meaning there is little to no benefit in consuming ALA as an omega-3 source.
I'VE HEARD KRILL IS A SUPERIOR OMEGA-3 SOURCE
Krill is a small marine crustacean. Its serves as a source of food for many larger marine fish species. Krill products are said to have a particularly high value with respect to omega-3 fatty acids. This means that the omega-3 fatty acids present can be used particularly well by the human body.
Our concern with krill isn’t necessarily based on efficacy but sustainability. Professor Jonathan Napier of Rothamsted Research in the UK said:
“there is concern that harvesting this very small animal, which is near the bottom of the marine food web is at best foolhardy, if not reckless, irrespective of being technically challenging.”
The huge decline in krill numbers has led to campaign groups taking retailers to task on stocking these products and many have dropped them from their shelves for ecological reasons.
We have a commitment to limit our impact on the wider environment and will always strive to source our omega-3 oil from the most sustainable sources.
