Omega 3 Fish Oil

Omega 3 Fish Oil general information

What is Omega 3 Fish Oil used for?

Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules are a dietary supplement that are used to increase levels of essential fatty acids (EFA), which have been shown to provide many positive health benefits.  These include maintaining healthy brain and heart function, helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, reducing joint discomfort and improving joint mobility.  EFAs are essential nutrients, which means that the body does not make them in sufficient amounts and this also decreases with age, therefore they must be obtained from the diet and are found mainly in oily fish like salmon, mackerel, anchovy and sardine.  The diet is often deficient in these essential fatty acids and Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules help to supplement this dietary deficiency.  

How does Omega 3 Fish Oil work?

Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules contain two omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids; these are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).  Both EPA and DHA are important for normal cell metabolism and work at the level of the cell membrane, where they are involved in metabolic pathways that produce cellular mediators like prostaglandins and interleukins, particularly those that are anti-inflammatory1.  These cellular mediators influence many aspect of the body’s physiology, including blood clotting, inflammation, the immune system, and membrane structure of the brain.  Maintaining the correct balance of these essential omega-3 fatty acids is important in promoting healthy heart function and reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and possibly other health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis2.  The daily intake of EPA and DHA is often low and it has been recommended that this is increased1, 3. Clinical studies have shown that supplementation of the diet with fish oil has several positive impacts on health and on the biochemical markers of some diseases.  These include, maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels, maintaining healthy blood vessels, reducing risk of blood clots, reducing risk of heart attack and protecting against heart disease and stroke4, 5, 6, 7.  The overall findings from a review of clinical studies supports the recommendation for increasing the dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids, based on the original observation that Greenland Eskimos eat large quantities of fish, which is associated with their low incidence of fatal coronary heart disease8. Omega-3 fatty acids are a major component of nerve cell membranes and play a critical role in brain function.  A review of findings from clinical studies indicates that dietary supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA may help improve cognitive function such as learning and memory throughout life9, 10, 11. Brain plasticity is the ability of the brain to change its neural pathways in response to external stimuli, such as is required for learning and recovery from injury.  The findings of a review of studies looking at the effects of diet on brain plasticity indicates that there is a role for modifying diet, such as increasing intake of omega-3 fatty acids, in promoting brain plasticity, which may be relevant in protecting against neurological disorders such as cognitive decline and dementia12.  

What does Omega 3 Fish Oil contain?

Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules contain the active ingredient docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (120mg) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (180mg).  These Omega 3 fatty acids are sourced from wild unfarmed cold water fish (anchovy, mackerel and sardines) and have been tested to comply with international standards for Omega 3 content, oxidation levels and heavy metal levels.

Omega 3 Fish Oil for heart health

Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules contain two omega-3 fatty acids; docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).  These are also known as essential fatty acids (EFA) because they are important nutrients with many positive health benefits but are not made by the body in sufficient amounts.  They must therefore, be obtained from the diet from oily fish like salmon, mackerel, anchovy and sardine.  Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules are a dietary supplement used to increase levels of DHA and EPA.  Both EPA and DHA are important for normal cell metabolism and work at the level of the cell membrane, where they are involved in metabolic pathways that produce cellular mediators like prostaglandins and interleukins, particularly those that are anti-inflammatory1.  Maintaining the correct balance of these essential omega-3 fatty acids is important in promoting healthy heart function and reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and since the daily intake of EPA and DHA is often low and it has been recommended that this is increased1,2, 3.

What are the side effects of Omega 3 Fish Oil?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Omega 3 Fish Oil include: gastrointestinal upset, such as bloating and belching due to gas build up and diarrhoea, fishy odour.

When should Omega 3 Fish Oil not be used?

You should not use Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules if you:

  • are allergic to docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) or eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or any ingredients in Omega 3 Fish Oil
  • are allergic to seafood
  • are pregnant or are breastfeeding
  • have liver disease
  • have diabetes as Omega 3 Fish Oil can affect blood sugar levels
  • are taking medicines that interact with Omega 3 Fish Oil such as blood thinning or anticoagulant medication like warfarin, clopidogrel and aspirin, medication to lower blood sugar such as glipizide, glyburide, metformin and insulin, antihypertensive medication

What medications interact with Omega 3 Fish Oil?

Several medications interact with Omega 3 Fish Oil and should either not be taken while you are taking Omega 3 Fish Oil or only after discussion and instruction from your doctor:

  • Drugs that cause a serious reaction with Omega 3 Fish Oil: blood thinning or anticoagulant medication medication like warfarin, clopidogrel and aspirin, as Omega 3 Fish Oil can increase risk of bleeding, medication to lower blood sugar such as glipizide, glyburide, metformin and insulin as Omega 3 Fish Oil can increase blood sugar levels, antihypertensive medication as Omega 3 Fish Oil can lower blood pressure causing blood pressure to fall too low.

How should Omega 3 Fish Oil be taken?

You should take your Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules swallowed whole with a glass of water and with food.  You should take 1-3 capsules daily or as advised by your health professional and you should not exceed the recommended daily dose.  You should continue to take your Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules for as long as recommended by your health professional.

How long should you take Omega 3 Fish Oil?

You should continue to take your Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules for as long as recommended by your health professional.

Missed dose of Omega 3 Fish Oil

If you miss a dose of Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time to take the next dose, then skip the missed dose.  Do not take a double dose.

How should Omega 3 Fish Oil be stored?

You should store your Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules below 25°C in a cool dry place.
