Omega 3-6-9 Oils
Omega oils are healthy fats important for our brain, heart and joints. From fish oils to nut and seed oils, Omega 3 6 9 supplements are an easy way to boost your intake. Our strict marine sustainability policy ensures all our fish oils are independently certified as sustainably sourced, so you can feel confident you’re making a better, environmentally conscious choice.
Scientists refer to Omega 3 and 6 oils as essential fatty acids because it’s essential that we consume adequate amounts to stay healthy. They can’t be made by our bodies and form integral parts in our brains, cell membranes, hormones and eyes. Our bodies can synthesise Omega-9 if needed.
Marine oils contain comparatively more bioavailable Omega-3, compared to seed and nut oils. Their active components EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic) support joint, cardiovascular and brain health. Algae oil is a great plant-based option.
Seed and nut oils:
- Evening primrose oil
- Flaxseed oil
- Hemp seed oil
- MCT oil
Seed & nut oils contain a combination of Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9. Most of us obtain enough Omega 6 from animal fats. However, a vegan or vegetarian diet can be boosted with Omega-6 rich plant oils. Evening Primrose and Hempseed Oil contain the active component GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) which supports healthy skin and female hormones.
