Short - and long chained polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA’s), such as a number of the omega fatty acids found in fish, are so called essential fatty acids, which must be ingested, because the human body can not produce them, and they are needed for human health.

The PUFA's are important structural components of the cell membranes and contribute to various membrane functions. Currently, national and international bodies such as the WHO (World Health Organization) and EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) base their recommendations for dietary intake of the healthy fatty acids found fish, on the maintainance of a healthy cardiovascular system, good brain function and good vision (ref. Commission regulation (EC) 432/2012*) - but scientific research is continuesly on-going, linking the intake of PUFA's to a number of other functions important for human health as well.


The main Omega-3 PUFA's in the diet; Alpha-linoic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) are all found in Ecolomega® and comprise, together with a broad range of other healthy fatty acids (omega-6, omega-7, omega-9 and omega-11), a complete and "whole food" fish oil that supplies not only omega-3 fatty acids, but also all the other fatty acids and soluble vitamins and minerals natrually found in fish.

If you do not eat fish 2-3 times per week, a daily intake of Ecolomega® fish oil is a good supplement to your diet, assuring you get the benefit from all the healthy fatty acids naturally found in fish.

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosanexaenoic acid) to the normal function of the heart, at daily intake of 250 mg (combined).

DHA (docosanexaenoic acid) contribute to a normal vision and normal brain function, at a daily intake of 250 mg.

ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels, at a daily intake of 2 gram.
