MorEPA Fish Oil - High in EPA Omega 3

FAQs about MorEPA Fish Oil

What are EFAs?

  • EFAs are essential fatty acids which are responsible for cell health and cell regeneration.
  • Our bodies cannot manufacture EFAs so they must be provided through diet.
  • Omega 3 and Omega 6 are the two EFAs we need.
  • We need to consume a 1:1 balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6.
  • Most Westerners consume as much as 20 times more Omega 6 than Omega 3.
  • Most people, children and adults, are lacking in Omega 3.

Why is the Western diet lacking in Omega 3?

  • Vegetable oils are dominant in Omega 6 fatty acids but lacking in Omega 3.
  • The processing of oils derived from corn, peanuts, and safflower and sunflower seeds creates an extremely concentrated source of Omega-6 at the expense of Omega-3.
  • Commercial production of food means it is stripped of Omega 3 to preserve its shelf life.
  • Modern methods of animal farming were developed to purposely fatten livestock for slaughter. Pen-feeding livestock with carbohydrate rich grains teeming with Omega-6, yet devoid of Omega-3, results in the meat containing considerably more Omega-6, at the expense of Omega-3, compared to livestock raised as range-free and wild game.
  • Lack of Omega 3 in grain fed to livestock means that it is not passed through the food chain to eggs and some fish supplements.
  • The only way to restore a healthy balance in our bodies is by consumption of oils rich in Omega 3.

Why do I need Omega 3?

  • Omega 3 is essential for brain and body function. It is vital for our immune system, our mental health and our overall wellbeing.
  • Omega 3 is essential for brain and body function. It is vital for our immune system, our mental health and our overall wellbeing.

How can I increase my intake of Omega 3?

  • There are natural foodstuffs which give us Omega 3. These are oily fish, green leafy vegetables and certain nuts and seeds, but it is very difficult for most busy people to eat enough of them. Fortunately there is a solution.
  • Omega 3 supplementation is the simplest way to ensure your body is perfectly tuned.
  • Omega 3 is contained in fish oils. However farmed fish is lacking in Omega 3 and fish caught in contaminated waters may have high levels of mercury and other toxins.
  • The highest source of Omega 3 is flax oil.
  • Dozens of prominent doctors and nutritionists support the benefits of flax (see essential reading).
  • Flax oil may be added to food in many ways, used as a salad dressing or taken from a spoon if you enjoy its unique taste.
  • Omega 3 is not a saturated fat. It will not contribute to weight gain. In fact it will boost metabolism and have a positive effect on your ability to burn off fats and recover from exercise

Which supplement should i take?

  • There are currently over 200 products sold under the category of Supplemental Oils in natural foods stores. Every conceivable variation and blend of therapeutic oils exist, but many are contradictory and formulated in complete disrespect for the current Omega 6 to Omega 3 crisis
  • So called "balanced" oils containing a 1:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 do nothing more than sustain the status quo in the body. A 1:1 ratio would seem to make sense since this is the exact ratio that is desired in the body. However supplementing with a 1:1 ratio when the body already has up to 20 times more Omega-6 does little or nothing to correct imbalance.
  • The best supplements are fish oil, for those who cannot eat fish then flax oil is an alternative source of Omega 3.

MorEPA Especially for children?

  • For many years fish oil capsules have been available, but there is now a question mark over the purity and integrity of the fish used due to ocean pollutants in certain fishing areas and the introduction of intensive fish farming techniques.
  • Both the US Food and Drug Administration and the UKs Food Standards Agency have issued warnings about dioxins and mercury and other heavy metal traces present in fish tested.
  • Our fish oil capsules do not contain farmed fish, but fresh deep water trawled fish caught in the Arctic Circle and chilled down to 50 degrees Centigrade to remove any possible impurities.
  • Fish oils must undergo complex refining to reduce odour, peroxides, free fatty acids and potential toxins due to contaminants such as DDT and methylmercury. Despite these measures standards of quality for fish oils have proven extremely inconsistent.
  • Many companies have been penalized for manufacturing fish oils in excess of toxicity guidelines. Furthermore, several studies have revealed that when fish oils are randomly tested for peroxide values, many of these products exceed the guidelines set by the World Health Organisation.
  • Even the gelatine capsules in MorEPA are made from fish bones. The orange and rosemary act as natural deodorisers and both products offer the most concentrated dose of Omega 3 EPA and DHA available. This means you need to take from as little as one capsule per day to give you all the pure untainted Omega 3 you need.
EPA Omega 3 may benefit the Brain & Nervous system, Eyes, Heart & Circulation, Joints etc.
