Fish oil Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA
Fish, incredibly healthy!
If you don't eat fatty fish twice a week, a fish oil supplement can be a valuable addition to your healthy lifestyle! Fish oil has a beneficial impact on the heart and blood pressure. It helps maintain normal fat levels in your blood. But that's not all. It's good for your vision and your brain. Did you know that it's also beneficial for pregnant and breastfeeding women? It contributes to the fetal brain and eye development. Overall, it's a supplement that is often overlooked but of significant importance for multiple processes in your body. This supplement, Visolie Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA, is the highest dosed fish oil in our range. The percentages, 50% EPA and 25% DHA, refer to the concentration of these specific omega-3 fatty acids in the oil. The percentages represent the amount of each fatty acid per daily dose. So, 3 capsules - the daily dose - contain 1365 mg EPA and 690 mg DHA.
- EPA and DHA, in triglyceride form, are good for the heart and blood pressure. They also help maintain normal fat levels in the blood.
- DHA is important for your vision and your brain. It's also crucial for the fetal brain and eyes.
- In triglyceride form, the most absorbable non-synthetic form for your body.
- Oil derived from anchovies, a non-endangered fish species from the Northern Pacific Ocean.
What do EPA and DHA mean?
EPA stands for eicosapentaenoic acid, and DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid. Both ingredients are polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are primarily found in fatty fish species such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and herring. They can also be found in algae oil, which is a plant-based source of omega-3 and an alternative for those who do not eat fish.
What are the benefits of fish oil?
There is ample research indicating that EPA and DHA have a favorable impact on the heart. These fatty acids are also beneficial for blood pressure by maintaining normal blood pressure levels. They help preserve normal triglyceride levels in the blood. Additionally, DHA is good for vision and brain health. These beneficial effects are achieved with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA.
When should I take fish oil?
If you have fatty fish on the menu twice a week, taking a fish oil supplement is generally not necessary. However, in practice, many of us do not meet this recommendation due to dietary choices, allergies, or personal preferences.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women may benefit from a fish oil supplement. DHA is essential for the fetal brain and eye development.
What are triglycerides and ethyl esters?
In herring, mackerel, or a piece of salmon, polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are in the form of triglycerides. Triglycerides consist of three fatty acids attached to a glycerol molecule. Triglyceride is the most natural form and is directly absorbed by the body.
If one fatty acid is attached to one ethanol molecule, they are ethyl esters. This is a synthetic form and is less well absorbed by the body.
Visolie Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA contains triglycerides, ensuring good absorbability of this supplement.
Visolie Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA capsules contain pure, high-quality fish oil sourced from anchovies in the Northern Pacific Ocean, caught sustainably and under controlled conditions. Anchovies are a non-endangered fish species, unlike mackerel, cod, and brown trout, which are often used as the basis for fish oil supplements.
Low Totox Value
The Totox value, also known as oxidation value, indicates the freshness of the oil. The lower this number, the fresher the oil. This low value guarantees the product's quality and reduces the risk of reflux. Many brands only indicate the peroxide value as a measure of oxidation, which is often low. The Totox value combines two indicators to measure freshness. These two values are added together and must remain below the European guideline of 26. If you read somewhere that a fish oil has a Totox value of 'below 5', it often refers only to the peroxide value and not the total Totox value. The Totox value is determined per batch, so it can vary from bottle to bottle. The higher the percentage of EPA and DHA, the higher the Totox value will be. Visolie Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA always remains below the safe value of 26.
With Biologically Active Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Now you might be thinking: what does that have to do with fish oil? Vitamin E helps prevent the oxidation of unsaturated fats, such as EPA and DHA. When these fats oxidize, they can become rancid, reducing the quality of the fish oil. But you don't need to worry about that now. Vitamin E helps protect the oil from this oxidation. In addition to its protective role in Visolie Gold 50% EPA & 25% DHA, vitamin E also has multiple benefits for your body, such as protecting cells from damage by free radicals.
