Pharma Nord BioActive Omega3 60 Caps
BioActive Omega-3 is soft gelatin capsules each containing 500 mg of fish oil including 185 mg EPA, 115 mg DHA and 50 mg Omega 3 fatty acids. The Omega 3 content is predominantly in the form of easily absorbed free fatty acids. The fish oil is concentrated, so you get a fairly large amount of Omega 3 in a relatively small capsule. The fish oil is highly refined, meaning it is cleaned in a special process and is far below regulatory limits for pollution. BioActive Omega-3 is capsulated in an oxygen-free environment and has an extremely low peroxide value, as the oil is effectively protected against oxidation. Two homocysteine lowering B vitamins, folic acid and vitamin B12, are added to BioActive Omega-3.
Free fatty acids in BioActive Omega-3
In nature, Omega 3 fatty acids occur as triglycerides that must be decomposed and broken down into “free” fatty acids before the digestive tract is able to absorb them. This process is enabled by a digestive enzyme called lipase. BioActive Omega-3 contains Omega 3 predominantly in the form of free fatty acids that have already been broken down and are ready for absorbtion. The advantage with this type of Omega 3 fatty acids is that they can be absorbed directly even by individuals with impaired lipid absorption.
As a natural consequence of the fact that the oil comes as free fatty acids, it can cause a burning sensation on the tongue if you chew the capsule. It is therefore recommended to swallow the capsule whole. The free fatty acids and the added B vitamins may also result in odor from the oil in spite of the fact that the oil is fresh and clean.
BioActive Omega-3 is a good supplement for those who for various reasons do not eat fish in amounts recommended by health authorities and for those who need an extra clean and easily absorbed fish oil.
Besides Omega 3 fatty acids BioActive Omega-3 contains folic acid and vitamin B12. Both vitamins support the Omega 3 fatty acids in contributing to a normal homocysteine metabolism. Also, folic acid contributes to a normal immune system, psychological function and blood formation. Furthermore, folic acid has a role in the process of cell division and support to normal fetal tissue growth during pregnancy.
