Ideally, the ratio of the two main fatty acids in our diet, omega-3 and omega-6, is between 1:1 to 1:5. However, in our current diet, in which we mainly consume a lot of omega-6 fatty acids, we see that this ratio fluctuates between 1:15 and 1:25. This is because linoleic acid has been added to many processed foods, and because it is common in meat products from animals that mainly eat grain. Fatty fish is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. In a balanced diet, it is therefore important to eat sufficient fish. This may not always be possible, or you might not like fish. Studies show that the recommended daily dose of 200 mg of fish fatty acids is not achieved by everyone. (Food Consumption Survey 2012-2016). In this case, Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsules provide a solution. This product also contains EPA and DHA in the natural ratio and in triglyceride form. That is conducive to absorption. EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA. DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function and of normal vision. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA. The benefits of Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsules
Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsules provide a good daily supplement of omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids. In this product, we use only the natural triglyceride form of omega-3. Unlike synthetic ethyl esters, fish fatty acids are in their natural triglyceride form. For that reason, we also use fish gelatine for the soft gel capsule wall, instead of beef or pork gelatine. Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsules contain the recommended daily amount of EPA and DHA in a ratio of 3:2. That means that 150 mg of EPA and 100 mg of DHA are contained in this small and therefore easy to swallow soft gel capsule. That supplements the diet nicely, with just one soft gel capsule a day. High quality because of sustainably sourced MSC fish oil
At Bonusan we want to make the best possible product. We strive for the highest quality of the active basic ingredient and we endeavour to use as few excipients as possible. The Bonusan Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsules therefore only contain the following ingredients: fish oil concentrate, capsule wall and natural mixed tocopherols (vitamin E). Tocopherols are antioxidants that stabilise the fatty acids and also counteract oxidation. The fish oil is thoroughly filtered, made odourless and purified from harmful pollutants (therefore heavy metals, dioxins and PCBs are removed) and as a result of this it meets, of course, the legal standard. For the Bonusan Omega-3 MSC, we opt for sustainably sourced fish oil, made from 100% Alaska pollock oil. The Alaska pollock in this product comes from a fishery that has been independently certified to the MSC’s standard for a well-managed and sustainable fishery (MSC-C-54613). The MSC certification provides the guarantee (amongst other things) that the fish stocks remain abundant, that damage to the ecosystem is kept to a minimum and that there is compliance with national and international fisheries laws. The entire process, from catch to food supplement, is therefore guaranteed to be sustainable. Because of the high quality of the fatty acids, after ingestion the product is well tolerated. This quality ensures that fish-flavoured belching is a thing of the past. Suitable for anyone wishing to supplement omega-3 fatty acids with a high-quality and sustainable supplement
Bonusan Omega-3 MSC offers a good basis to anyone wishing to improve the ratio between the intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The Omega-3 MSC soft gel capsule is also suitable for children. We also offer the Omega-3 MSC Drink Oil; this has the same composition as the soft gel capsules, but is in liquid form and therefore easy for self-dosing.
