FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., October 28, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Omega-3s have been a popular topic on health and wellness news for the past decade, but with so much misinformation, many people wonder whether omega-3s are as important to the body as the hype suggests.
When it comes to omega-3 fatty acids, it is important to note that the term essentially has a double meaning. While omega-3 fatty acids are essential for better nutrition, the word “essential” in this context refers to all nutrients that are not produced by the human body. This means that humans do not naturally produce their own omega-3 fatty acids and do not have to use foods or supplements.
Capsules were originally the only delivery method for omega-3 fish oil, but recently the market for fish oil products has expanded to include new and more convenient forms. Optimega, a supplementary nutrition brand, creates drinkable, fruit-flavored omega-3 shots that contain omega-3 fatty acids in liquid form for an entire day. This is especially helpful for anyone who has difficulty swallowing pills.
But what do omega-3 fatty acids do in the body and why is it so important? The American Heart Association recommends including fish in a regular diet at least twice a week to get an adequate dose of omega-3 fish oil. Many people may not be able to keep up with fish cooking and processing as often and turn to supplementation. Fish oil, in particular, is considered to be one of the best forms of omega-3 fatty acids because it contains the two main forms of omega-3 fatty acids, “DHA” and “EPA”.
While traditional dietary supplements have been extremely helpful for many people who cannot get the recommended daily allowance of omega-3 fatty acids from food alone, there is often a large discrepancy in the bioavailability of the nutrients contained in dietary supplements and the nutrients contained in a rich diet Diet can be obtained in fish oil. Bioavailability refers to the speed with which nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids are absorbed and used by the body. Omega-3 fatty acids from food sources are more bioavailable because they are in their natural state and do not require any additional steps for the body to break them down.
Optimega aims to bridge the gap between the bioavailability of food-derived omega-3 fish oils and a supplement with their Optimega OmegaShots. Optimega’s OmegaShots are available in unique formulas designed to meet different customer needs, such as Prenatal OmegaShots, OmegaShots Sport, and even a version designed specifically for older adults.
In the modern age of innovation, there is always more than one way to better health, and Optimega just makes it a little easier to get your recommended daily allowance of omega-3s. OmegaShots are currently sold through major online retailers such as Amazon.com. Availability will increase over the course of the year.
