We all know that eating well and exercising regularly are key to staying healthy, but have you thought about enhancing your lifestyle with supplements?
In 2020, there’s been a lot of discussion about the importance of vitamin D supplements, in a spring/summer when our exposure to natural daylight has been limited. Many people take multivitamin supplements or zinc tablets to support their health, and omega-3 supplements are another great option.
Why Take Omega-3 Supplements?
Omega-3 fatty acids are known as essential fatty acids – your body needs them in order to function at its best. However, many of us don’t consume enough omega-3 from our diets; processed and refined foods actually contain more omega-6, which can lead to an imbalance.
While some foods, such as fatty fish, do contain omega-3, not everyone eats enough oily fish – many of us don’t consume any at all. Fish also naturally contain omega-6 and saturated fats, which aren’t necessary for helping you to get enough omega-3.
This is where supplements come in. MINAMI supplements contain 90-95% of omega-3 per softgel – significantly more than many other brands, meaning you’ll have fewer pills to swallow to get the essential omega-3 you need.
The fish oil that we use has been sustainably sourced, from waters where overfishing is not a problem. We then use a patented supercritical CO₂ extraction process to remove unwanted toxins and excess fats from our omega-3, providing you with a much more sustainable way to access the omega-3 your body needs.
Supplements also provide a great way to make sure you’re getting enough omega-3 if you’re vegan or don’t eat fish for any other reason. At MINAMI, we have a Vegan DHA supplement made from algae oil, which is naturally rich in omega-3.
