Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.
USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. ALWAYS READ THE LABEL.
EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS:
CONCENTRATED OMEGA-3 TRIGLYCERIDES-FISH 1000 mg
containing Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) 320 mg
containing Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) 230 mg
CONTAINING TOTAL OMEGA-3 TRIGLYCERIDES 600 mg
CHOLECALCIFEROL (VITAMIN D3, 100 IU)
BiOmega™ is produced from wild ocean fish and contains two important omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). BiOmega is packaged in a convenient gel capsule for easy use and storage. Supplementing EPA and DHA fatty acids can help maintain normal, healthy cardiovascular function and helps maintain good joint health. Essential fatty acids are key structural components of the brain and retina.
DHA also plays an important role in the growth and development of the brain of the fetus during pregnancy.
While we should limit fat intake to no more than 30 percent of calories, we should also pay attention to the type of fats we consume. Saturated fats—found in meat, milk, and cheese—help to promote the formation of artery-clogging fatty deposits. The transfatty acids found in partially hydrogenated margarines and shortening hidden in baked foods (cookies and cakes) and in fried fast
foods are even more harmful to our health.
Monounsaturated fats, found in vegetable oils, do not promote arterial fat deposits. Polyunsaturated fats, such as the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, are the most beneficial fats. Maintaining the proper balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids is also important. The modern Western diet contains much more omega-6 than omega-3.
Fat Metabolism The body uses fats, in the form of triglycerides or phospholipids, in several ways. Fat supplies
body insulation and fuel for energy production; it also provides padding to vital organs and serves to insulate nerve fibres to facilitate impulse transmission. Fats are building blocks of important metabolic compounds such as hormones and prostaglandins. They also play an important role in transporting other nutrients, such as the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. Fatty acids are important
structural components of all cell membranes. Why BiOmega™? In the U.S., Europe, and Australia, the amount
of omega-3 fatty acids consumed in the average diet has dropped drastically. The refining and hydrogenation processes that lengthen shelf life have also reduced the
omega-3 fatty acids in commercial vegetable oils. Supplementation with BiOmega is an excellent way to ensure that your diet includes the healthful omega-3 fatty acids. Recent studies have shown an unexpected
prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in both Australia and New Zealand.1 Emerging evidence suggests many protective benefits of vitamin D, in addition to its role in bone health. For Australian’s to achieve optimal levels of vitamin D without putting themselves at greater risk
from increased sun exposure, there would be an increased requirement for dietary sources of vitamin D.
As vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, BiOmega provides an ideal delivery medium for vitamin D, to ensure a sufficient daily intake.
