Omega-3

The vital fat
Why omega-3? 
Every cell in your body benefits from omega-3 but your body can’t make it on its own, so you need to ingest it through food or supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into cell membranes and facilitate signal transduction and other mechanisms. The beneficial effects of omega-3 are particularly well-known on the brain, heart and cardiovascular system, as well as the eyes.
Some fatty acids are more important than others
The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA support vital functions throughout the body. There are thousands of published studies on humans showing the benefits of omega-3s on health, but the areas with the most scientific support for EPA and DHA are heart, brain, eye, and prenatal health.
Our health benefits
Omega-3 and vitamin D is a boon
Another benefit of cod liver oil as a source of omega-3 is that vitamin D is an important nutrient for newborns. It helps the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, which is beneficial for the development of healthy bones and teeth. 
Omega-3 for the development of your brain 
Your all-important mental computer benefits from omega-3. A daily intake of 250 mg DHA, through cod liver oil for example, contributes to the normal functioning of your brain. 
Omega-3 is important even before you are born 
A mother’s diet during pregnancy affects the health of her child, both in the womb and after birth during lactation. Parts of the omega-3 ingested by the mother during pregnancy and lactation is transferred to the child, thus contributing to the development of both the brain and vision of the child. 
Cod liver oil is one of the best sources of omega-3
Cod liver oil is one of the best sources of omega-3, with the added benefit that it naturally contains vitamin A and D. These vitamins work in combination with other nutrients to maintain a normally functioning immune system. This is how you give yourself strength to fight infection. 
See clearly throughout your life with omega-3 
As a unique nutrient in the retina,  DHA  contributes to the normal development of  vision in newborns and small children and later to maintaining normal vison in adults and older people. 
Your heart beats for omega-3
The risk for cardiovascular disease decreases when your omega-3 level goes up, even if you already have an elevated risk due to excessive levels of fats or bad cholesterol in your blood.  A daily intake of 3 g DHA and EPA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.
Cod liver oil is important throughout life  
If you take cod liver oil as a source of omega-3 later in life, you benefit from the effects of vitamin D, which is also important for healthy aging. Vitamin D helps to maintain normal bone structure, muscle function and connective tissue, of which there are many in the joints. It also helps to maintain normal vision.

What is omega-3?

EPA and DHA are long-chained omega-3 fatty acids that have various documented beneficial effects on health.

EPA and DHA are involved structurally as building blocks and in processes in the heart and cardiovascular system which combined have positive effects on heart health. DHA fatty acids are also unique in having positive effects on the brain and vision.

Omega-3 from marine sources 
Omega-3 from marine sources 
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in a range of foods, of which the richest source being marine. Fatty fish such as mackerel, sardines, salmon, trout, anchovies and herring are rich in marine long-chain fatty acids such as EPA and DHA.  Möller's Cod Liver Oil is made from the liver of the Lofoten Northeast Arctic cod. This oil, which is rich in omega-3 and other nutrients, is extracted by gently steaming the liver.
Other sources of omega-3

Non-marine sources of omega-3 include nuts such as walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts; seeds such as chia and flax; vegetable oils such as olive, canola and soya bean; dairy products; breads and cereals; meat and eggs. However, the concentration of the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA is not as large as in marine sources.

How much omega-3 do you need?

The National health service (NHS) advises us to eat fish at least twice a week. If you eat less, which studies show that many of us do, it’s wise to top up with an omega-3 supplement.

One teaspoon of cod liver oil (5 ml) provides the recommended daily amount of both DHA, EPA and the vitamins A, D and E, and is a good and convenient daily supplement for both children and adults. 

What’s best, liquid or capsules?
What’s best, liquid or capsules?
Both liquid cod liver oil and capsules are equally valuable sources of omega-3, but have different origins. While cod liver oil is extracted from fresh cod liver, the oil used in most omega-3 capsules is extracted by pressing whole small fish such as anchovies and sardines. While vitamin A and D are naturally present in cod liver oil, these vitamins are added to the oil in the capsules as they don’t occur in small fish.  We have omega-3 food supplements that suit all preferences - everything from capsules, liquid and jelly fish.
