Why take omega 3?
Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are named as such, as they are essential to our health. Unfortunately we can’t synthesise these ourselves, therefore the only way to obtain them is through our diet and supplementation. They are integral to the suppleness and health of all cells, and have been shown to provide many positive benefits for brain function, cardiovascular and nervous systems, joint health and mobility.
Flaxseed provides the body with omega-3 in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). ALA is not
equivalent to DHA or EPA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted to EPA in order to be effective.
The importance of Vitamin D
The main source of vitamin D is via exposure to sunlight. So as people start to spend more time in doors both at work and/or at home, risks of deficiencies increase. This makes supplemental Vitamin D even more important. Some groups that are at risk of deficiencies include: older people in residential care or admitted to hospital, people with hip fractures, people with very dark skin, people with skin cancers or skin-related conditions, where avoidance of sunlight is required, people who completely avoid the sun, people with malabsorption syndromes.
One key need for optimal Vitamin D is for bone health. Vitamin D is ideal for anyone who does not get enough natural sunlight. It works with calcium to support its absorption into the bone, thus in turn it helps to build and maintain strong healthy bones. Vitamin D is also important for healthy moods, and immunity.
Optimal vitamin D is needed to support:
ü Healthy bone building and strength
ü Calcium absorption
ü Balanced moods, especially over the darker winter months
ü Healthy immunity
