Are you vegan? Don't like fish? Then an Omega-3 supplement may be just right for you. The Swedish Food Agency recommends that we eat fish or shellfish 2-3 times a week to get important nutrients such as Omega-3. The important Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to the normal functioning of the heart and brain.

Essential fats

Omega-3 is one of the most important essential polyunsaturated fats that we must get through food, the body cannot manufacture it on its own.

What else is Omega-3 good for?

Omega-3 is also needed for the body to be able to repair and build new cells. It also helps the regulation of our immune system, kidney function and blood pressure. Another very important function Omega-3 helps with is to improve the blood's ability to coagulate and can thus reduce the risk of suffering a blood clot.

Get Omega-3 naturally

A balanced and healthy diet is key to getting enough Omega-3. Therefore, please eat more of this:

  • Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and herring
  • Some algae
  • Linseed oil and cooking fats made from linseed oil
  • Walnuts
  • One portion of salmon a day

How often do you eat oily fish?

The Swedish Food Agency says that approximately 5-10 percent of all food we eat should come from polyunsaturated fats, of which approximately 1 percent from Omega-3. This means approximately 2.5-3 grams of Omega-3 per day, i.e. the same amount as is found in a portion of salmon.

A+ Omega-3 is a food supplement with a highly concentrated fish oil that contains the all-important fatty acids DHA and EPA and in a larger dose than other standard fish oils on the market. These fatty acids are essential, which means that they must be supplied via the diet, above all in the form of fatty fish. A+ Omega 3 is manufactured in Norway and the fish used in the fish oil is Friend of the Sea certified, which confirms its origin and sustainability.

Think about this..!

For pregnant women, Omega-3 is especially important for the development of the fetus. Always consult your doctor or midwife so that you are eating the right amount of vitamins and minerals for you and your baby.

Omega-3 and exercise

If you exercise a lot, whether you do strength training or endurance training, you should think about your intake of Omega-3. The fatty acids in Omega-3 have mechanisms that can potentially help and influence your results from training as well as stimulate muscle building. But not only that, it can also have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. For anyone who exercises, this makes Omega-3 very interesting both for health and for performance.

Different types of Omega-3 fatty acids

You've probably heard that there are different types of Omega-3 fatty acids, but what exactly is the difference between them? Omega-3 contains, among other things, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which have several positive properties for the body. DHA primarily contributes to maintaining normal brain function, but also to maintaining normal eyesight. EPA and DHA both contribute to the normal functioning of the heart.

If you find it difficult to get a sufficient amount of Omega-3 per day through your diet, a dietary supplement may be something you should consider.
