Omega-3 fatty acids are important building blocks of the human body and are involved in many processes. For example, EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart* and DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function and normal vision**. Omega-3 fatty acids, of which DHA is part, are a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Another fatty acid in this group –alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) - is essential, which means that it cannot be produced by our body. We obtain this fatty acid from our food. Our body takes in ALA when we eat, for example, linseed, walnuts and their oils, but also some vegetables and meat. ALA can be converted into EPA and DHA, but this is a laborious process for the body. We obtain the EPA and DHA fatty acids directly from fatty fish, krill or algae. Of the omega-3 fatty acids ALA, EPA and DHA, DHA has the longest chain (22) and the most unsaturated bonds (6). DHA is found in our body tissue in varying quantities. DHA is an important component of cell membranes. The concentration is the highest in eyes and the brain. * This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA ** This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA The benefits of Bonusan Omega-3 MSC DHA Forte
Omega-3 MSC DHA Forte soft gel capsules provide a good daily supplement of omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids. For this product, we only use 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. This unique and high dose omega-3 product contains 460 mg of DHA and 100 mg of EPA in each soft gel capsule, because of which high doses of DHA can easily be taken. The soft gel capsules are also easy to swallow and are odourless and tasteless. High-quality sustainable fish oil
Bonusan Omega-3 MSC products meet our standard high quality requirements. The fish oil that we use is therefore thoroughly filtered, made odourless and purified from harmful pollutants (therefore heavy metals, dioxins and PCBs are removed). We have also added natural mixed tocopherols (vitamin E) as an excipient. Tocopherols are antioxidants that stabilise the fatty acids and also counteract oxidation. The advantage of using high-quality fatty acids is that, after ingestion of the soft gel capsules, fish-flavoured belching is a thing of the past. For the Bonusan Omega-3 MSC DHA Forte 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). 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. Suitable for anyone in whom a high concentration of DHA is desirable
The Bonusan Omega-3 MSC DHA Forte soft gel capsules are ideal when there is a requirement for a high dose of DHA, supplemented with EPA. As basic supplementation of omega-3, we offer the Bonusan Omega-3 MSC Liquid or soft gel capsules.
