The majority of fish oils on the market are foreign sourced and are generally a blend of oils from anchovy, sardine and mackerel, or sold as salmon oil which has been farmed. HokiMega3 Omega 3 is concentrated and sourced exclusively from Hoki, and is molecularly distilled in New Zealand to produce a high quality product. Hoki, a species found in abundance in New Zealand waters and one of the few sustainable managed fisheries in the world, is a species that has a naturally higher Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA) to Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) ratio.
Concentrated Omega 3 ( greater than 40%)
This is an excellent source of Omega 3's in a form that the body can readily utilise. Concentrated Omega 3 esters contain a high level of DHA as well as a good level of EPA. DHA has been shown to be critical in infant brain development. As DHA is sourced from the mother through the placenta it is important that mothers maintain an adequate level of DHA in their diet. Research has shown a range of benefits in a number of areas such as:
Why is DHA the preferred EFA for the body?
- reduced risk of heart disease
- easing of joint pain
- improved cognitive function
- improvement in skin suppleness
- and overall well being.
Fish oil Omega 3s are delivered as EPA and DHA ready for use in the body, and DHA is the most important fatty acid because it can retro-convert to EPA, but unfortunately EPA cannot readily convert to DHA. It is therefore more preferable to have a higher DHA to EPA ration than the other way around.
Why Concentrated Omega 3 from New Zealand's Hoki Fish?
Molecular distillation is used to concentrate the key components of the fish oil. This results in a higher concentration of the effective fatty acids EPA and DHA, delivering health benefits. National Institutes of Health recommend that healthy adults should consume 650mg per day of DHA and EPA.
90 soft gel capsules per bottle, 1000mg per soft gel.
HokiMega3 delivers 700mg per daily serving (2 x capsules) - typically 160mg EPA and 540mg DHA per serving.
