The health benefits of fish oils are now widely accepted and I am
sure most of you are already giving them to your pets, and taking them
In brief fish oils contain omega 3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA
are the two most widely researched to date. Maintaining the balance
between Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats in our bodies is one of the important
factors in reducing inflammation. Western processed diets high in
cereals result in high levels of Omega 6’s so it is important to
supplement with Omega3’s, or eat lots of fish.
EPA also has a direct
anti inflammatory action by blocking the arachidonic acid (AA) pathway
which is what makes fish oil so effective for joint pain.
Fish oils have
been shown to benefit joints, eyes, skin, brain and kidneys and also to
help with healthy ageing by reducing cognitive decline.
Fish oils are
highly unstable by their nature and rapidly oxidise (i.e. become rancid)
in contact with air. Once oxidised (rancid) they can no longer impart
that antioxidant effect when taken.
A bottle of salmon oil will oxidise
within a week of opening or less. Pump topped bottles will do the same
as air is sucked back into the bottle as you use the product.
airless pouches ensure that our oil stays fresh and fully active to the
