OMEGA 3 Definitions

Omega-3s are naturally occurring nutrients that are critical for human health. They are similar to vitamins and minerals in that we need to consume them, but they are another category of nutrients, fatty acids.


There are three primary omega-3s: ALA, EPA, and DHA - and now DPA which is a link between EPA and DHA. While they are all considered healthful fats, there are big differences between the three and the function they perform in the body. ALA (alpha-linoleic acid) offers limited health benefits. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) have been studied the most and have many vital, life-sustaining roles.


Consuming enough EPA and DHA omega-3s is important for general health. For example, sufficient intake supports the health of our hearts, brains, eyes, joints, blood vessels and more. They support healthy mood and help us live longer. In particular, omega-3s are critical to normal development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.

EPA and DHA are most easily obtained from consuming cold-water fish — like salmon and tuna — or from taking purified supplements made from fish oil.

Natural Biology expects an exponential increase in the quality of Omega 3 supplements over the next many years - in that, the science is making new discoveries, primarily in methods of processing.   Current Natural Biology believes our Arctic Ocean Krill Oil and Norwegian Omega 3 represent the best in class - and our goal is to insure we take advantage of scientifically validated improvements in those two products.   

Natural Biology's philosophy has always been more is not necessarily better, but better is more.  We do not believe everyone has to take a lot of different products but just good ones.  That is why a majority of our customers take EVEREST Earth & Sea, or 7 BASICS, or 4 GRAMS with an Omega 3 product like Arctic Ocean Krill Oil and/or Norwegian Omega 3.   One Super Nutrient product with one Omega 3 product will give 80% of the public everything they need plus - and they'll be in the top 5% of people taking a comprehensive, complete, and potent supplement protocol.
