Frequently asked questions
Q What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and Omega-3, -6 and -9 EFAs??
A Polyunsaturated fats consist of fatty acids, many of which the human body needs in the same way as it needs vitamins and minerals, to maintain a wide range of normal functioning and health.The body can synthesise some of these fatty acids on its own, but others (called “essential” fatty acids or EFAs) need to be obtained through the diet.
EFAs are categorised into different families – Omega-3, Omega-6 or Omega-9 – depending on their chemical structure. Fish and seafood are some of the richest available sources of Omega-3 EFAs like EPA and DHA; while Omega-6 EFAs tend to be found in many plant-based oils, and Omega-9 EFAs most commonly occur in olive oil and sunflower oil.
Q Why are Omega-3 EFAs important for health?
A Fish and seafood provide two especially important polyunsaturated fatty acids: EPA & DHA. The body requires these essential fatty acids to maintain healthy joints, protect heart and brain health, and support normal blood circulation and skin health.
Q Where does the fish oil in this product come from?
A Nutra-Life Omega-3 Fish Oil 1000mg is sourced from sustainably-harvested populations of cold-water fish including anchovy, mackerel and sardine, and caught in the oceans off the coast of South America, then manufactured and packed right here in New Zealand. It is exhaustively tested for contaminants that include mercury, cadmium, arsenic, lead and pesticides to meet international European purity standards.
