Omega 3, 6, 9 1200mg
- A unique formula with 379mg of Omega 3s from oily fish
- Highlights the importance of vitamin D with 10µg per daily dose
- With Omega 6 and 9 oils in the correct ratio
- Higher strength, fantastic value compared to many equivalents
This unique formulation therefore emphasizes the Omega 3s obtained from oily fish (rather than the less well absorbed alpha linoleic acid source used by many companies), with each capsule providing a whopping 379mg of these essential fatty acids. The level of EPA at 196mg and DHA at 127mg is significantly higher than many other 3, 6 and 9 products that are available. DHA and EPA1 support the normal function of the heart and in addition, DHA2 contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
Pure grade starflower (borage) oil provides the source for the Omega 6 fatty acids and each capsule provides 66mg of this precious compound known as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) together with 125mg of linoleic acid.
We’ve chosen natural olive oil as our source of the Omega 9 fatty acid oleic acid, with each capsule supplying 200mg of this prized nutrient.
1 A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA and EPA.
2 A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA.
We do formulate our products to be as small as possible, whilst still providing a relevant level of the nutrients required. Our research has suggested that our customers prefer to take fewer capsules which is why they are often rather large in size. I am pleased to confirm that our capsules can be pierced if necessary.
There are no current plans to introduce smaller capsules but I have passed your comments to my colleagues in the relevant departments for their information and consideration
You may wish to consider Cod Liver Oil Liquid (code 450). Cod Liver Oil Liquid provides an excellent level of omega-3 (1035mg per 5ml). This liquid contains a natural lemon flavour and is highly purified, so it does not have the fishy taste that some liquids can have. Please find a link to Cod Liver Oil Liquid, below.
We do advise that this product is used at the recommended dose for at least three months. Perhaps you would be kind enough to leave another review after this time.
If you are not already doing so, we would suggest that you keep your doctor informed of any supplements that you are taking.
We have no plans to introduce cardboard packaging on our products, as the packaging needs to be airtight to protect our delicate capsules and tablets. At Nature's Best, we try very hard to be as green as possible in every area of our business, therefore, as I'm sure you are aware, all of our pots and most of our packaging is recyclable, and you will find the HDPE triangular mark on the bottom of the pots. Most councils will accept these in the green boxes for collection in the kerbside scheme. It is a topic which we have debated many times, and we are constantly reviewing our packaging and costs to make them more user and environment friendly. However, customer thoughts and feedback is very much appreciated, and my thanks to you once again for taking the time to share your ideas.
