What is OMEGA 3?
Decades of research has been devoted to discovering the many health benefits of Omega 3 supplementation. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid sourced from fish oil, which is rich in EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). As humans are incapable of synthesising Omega 3, it is essential that we consume them via dietary sources. Whilst Omega 3 can be derived from fish, such as mackerel and salmon, it can be difficult to consume optimal amounts through food alone, particularly with a hectic modern lifestyle.
What is OMEGA 3 used for in the human body?
Omega 3 has a variety of functions within the human body. This includes the most basic physiological processes, such as the production of cell walls.
What are the Key Benefits?
As stated by the European Food and Safety Authority, EPA and DHA have a radically important role in cardiac health. When these two long chain fatty acids are combined, they contribute to the normal function of the heart. Additionally, we have included a source of Vitamin E to help keep you on top of your micronutrient requirements. To obtain these benefits, a daily 250mg intake of EPA and DHA is recommended, which can be met with two softgel doses of Omega 3 (containing a total of 360mg of EPA and 240mg of DHA). Omega 3 is extremely cost effective and suitable for on-the-go consumption anywhere, anytime.

I bought this together with some other products here on Myprotein's website, and the quality of it is great. In comparison to the Omega 3 pills sold in Coles, the price here is a bit elevated, but I think this is correlated with the higher quality that Myprotein offer. It should be mentioned that the protein pancakes also are fantastic!
