Oily fish like salmon along with tuna, sardines, kippers, mackerel, and anchovies, are a good natural source of Omega-3. It’s recommended that adults consume at least one portion (140g) of oily fish per week to contribute to their omega-3 levels.

 

 

The health benefits of omega-3 can include helping to support normal brain function and vision, as well as maintaining cardiovascular health. As our bodies can’t produce the Omega-3 they need to stay healthy by themselves, it’s important to get essential Omega-3 fatty acids from elsewhere.

 

 

There are a variety of different ways to consume oily fish and our MINAMI® high-concentration Omega-3 supplements are made from sustainably sourced fish oil from sardines, mackerel, and anchovies, while we also have vegan Omega-3 softgels, made from algae oil instead.
