Recent findings have shown the importance of ‘healthy fats' within a balanced diet, particularly the role of Omega 3 which has been shown to improve body composition, increase protein retention in the body, support the brain, nervous system, eyes and help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Omega 3 is an exceptional source of 'good' fats not easily obtained from a typical western diet, unless you eat large amounts of oily fish. There are many different brands of Omega 3 supplements available, however the amount of the active ingredient can vary significantly. When choosing an omega 3 fish oil the most important aspect to consider is the amount of EPA and DHA as these are the components that yield the most benefits. Reflex Omega 3 is a high quality, full strength product that contains on average twice as much EPA and DHA as other leading brands.
