60 gelatin capsules (1000mg): A balanced blend of these beneficial oils
Omega 3-6-9 Oils provides a carefully blended combination of these healthy fats (high in EPA and DHA), balanced to optimal levels of each to ensure adequate intake of the essential polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are essential and must be sourced from the diet. Omega 9 fatty acid is not considered essential (as it can be manufactured by the body), but its inclusion in the diet has been associated with a range of health benefits.
This supplement is derived from sunflower seed oil, flaxseed oil and fish oil (the best source), plus added vitamin E. A high-strength formula (1000mg) and in an easy-to-swallow gel capsule form.

About the ingredients
These Omega oil capsules are a source of Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), Linoleic Acid (LA), Oleic Acid (OA) and vitamin E.
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (with a daily intake of 2g of DHA and when taken in combination with EPA)* – click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
Maternal intake of DHA contributes to the normal brain and eye development of the foetus and breastfed infants (a daily intake of at least 200mg). Click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
Replacing saturated fats in the diet with unsaturated fats contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. OA is an unsaturated fat.
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
*Users should not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5g of EPA and DHA combined.
What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)?
These are a group of unsaturated fatty acids that are essential for growth and body function. EFA activity requires three polyunsaturated fatty acids (linolenic, linoleic and arachidonic). The most essential are linoleic and arachidonic, which are closely involved in metabolism, transport of fats and maintenance of cell membranes. While linolenic and arachidonic acids can be synthesised by the body, linoleic cannot.
There are two types of essential fatty acids – Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids. Most people get adequate amounts of Omega 6 fatty acids through their diet, but not enough Omega 3. Over the past 50 years, the consumption of Omega 3 fatty acids has significantly declined in the West.
Essential fatty acids are needed for normal growth and development of children (this beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2 g of ALA and a daily intake of 10g of LA) – click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
Omega 3 oils are generally found in fatty fish, deep green vegetables and some grains and seeds. They contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is metabolised into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the body. DHA is found in high concentration in the grey matter of the brain and the retina of the eye, and is instrumental in the function of brain cell membranes (which are in turn important for the transmission of brain signals).
Unlike Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, Omega 9 fatty acids are not classed as EFAs. This is because they can be manufactured by the human body from unsaturated fat and are therefore not “essential” in the diet. Having said that, vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians and others with restricted diets (for whatever reason) may require greater dietary input.
