FAQs

  • What is Omega-3?

    Omega-3 is a collective term for a group of long-chained polyunsaturated fatty acids, having the first double bound  between carbon number 3 and 4 counted from the methyl-end (See also “Fatty acids and local hormones”). Omega-3 fatty acids are essential, which means that the body cannot produce them itself so they have to be a part of your diet. The exception is females in a fertile age, which have the ability to produce small amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids. However, intake of Omega-3 fatty acids through the diet is still recommended for females in this group. There are different types of omega-3 fatty acids; shorter chained Omega-3 fatty acids from the plant kingdom and longer chained Omega-3 fatty acids from marine sources. The long chained Omega-3 fatty acids have the highest bioactive effect (see also “Fatty acids and local hormones”), especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, C20:5 Omega–3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C 22:6 Omega-3-3).

     

    Following are the EFSA approved health claims for EPA and DHA (Commission Regulation (EU) 1924/2006 and 432/2012):

    • DHA and EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart (0.25 g per day)
    • DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure (3 g per day)
    • DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (2 g per day)
    • DHA contributes to maintenance of normal blood triglycerid levels (2 g per day in combination with EPA)
    • DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function (0.25 g per day)
    • DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision (0.25 g per day)
    • DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus and breastfed infants (0.2 g DHA plus the daily reccomenden intake of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+DHA for aduls which is 0.25 g per day).
    • DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal development of the eye of the fetus and breastfed infants (0.2 g DHA plus the daily recommended intake of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA+DHA) for adults which is 0.25 g per day).

  • At what age can we begin taking Omega-3 supplements?

    In principle, there are no age limits for starting or interrupting a food supplement based on Omega-3 fatty acids.

    In any case, the capsules and then the recommended doses have been designed for healthy men of about 70 kg but can be adjusted individually depending on the weight, specific functional needs and any pathological conditions of the subject.

  • Can Omega-3 be taken during pregnancy?

    A Danish study suggests that women with a rich Omega-3 diet during pregnancy give birth to children with “healthy” birth weights and are less often subject to premature births. It is well known that Omega-3 plays an important role in the development of the fetus and infant’s nervous system and that women with a poor diet of Omega-3 in pregnancy are at greater risk of postpartum depression

    The authoritative confirmation of the need to ensure an adequate take-up of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) during this delicate phase has recently come (September 2005) from the European Consensus Recommendation on Poli-unsaturated Fat Acids for Pregnant Women (PERILIP ), aiming to improve nutrition guidelines during pregnancy and natal growth.

    Experts in nutrition, development and function of placenta, obstetrics and neonatology, led by Dr. Berthold Koletzko and Dr. Irene Cetin, have completed work recommending a daily daily dose of 200mg of DHA for pregnant women and breastfeeding .

    PERILIP has highlighted the fact that taking up to 1g DHA or 2.7 g of long chain chain poly-unsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) has proved to have no significant side effects in various clinical trials. Such a recommendation could soon become an integral part of the new EU official guidelines, which among other things funded the work of the above-mentioned PERILIP conference.

  • Can you become dependent on Omega-3?

    EPA and DHA supplements are not drugs or artificial molecules, but nutritional supplements that renew the essential fatty acid reserves of the body in cases of dietary deficiency and / or increased need for these nutrients.

    An abrupt suspension of treatment has no adverse effect except the risk of losing physiological reserves progressively again in the absence of a sufficiently rich Omega-3 diet.

  • Do you have an excessive consumption of Omega-3 (that is, an Omega-3 rich diet that is associated with proper food supplementation) could be dangerous?

    There is no overdose risk in this situation. Suffice it to think that Eskimos living in the north of Quebec in Canada consume up to 16 grams of fish oil a day and no negative effect has been observed so far from such a dose of Omega-3.

  • For a person who already has a rich Omega-3 diet and who feels both physical and mental, is it necessary to take Omega-3 dietary supplements?

    It is clear that to a person who feels so well the advice to give is to continue doing what he does. In any case, if daily nutrition is already rich in essential fatty acids Omega-3 (fish, crustaceans, flaxseed, flax or rape oil) there is no reason to take nutritional supplements.

    Several studies show that a well-balanced diet of the “Mediterranean” type has a major preventative effect on the development of more common Western diseases such as frequent cardiovascular disease (coronary heart disease, high blood triglyceride rates, some heart rhythm disturbances).

    Some epidemiological studies suggest that such a diet also has preventative effects against depressive phenomena.

  • Omega-3 can be useful for multiple sclerosis?

    The results of studies that specifically measured the effect of Omega-3 on multiple sclerosis have shown that Omega-3 improves the symptoms of patients with this condition.

    In principle this applies to all autoimmune diseases, contributing to a better balance of the immune system.

    While on the one hand there are no particular side effects to be feared in the use of Omega-3 for multiple sclerosis, it should be stressed that the results may be moderate but potentially significant, such as reducing the required doses of anti-inflammatory drugs or immunosuppressants after a few months of care; all clearly under the supervision of the treating physician.

  • Omega-3 play a role in prevention?

    First, it is important to differentiate the concept of primary prevention from secondary prevention. The latter refers to those patients who have already had a first “cardiovascular alert”.

    Most of the clinical studies made using Omega-3 fatty acids have taken this type of patient into consideration. In this regard, it has been widely shown that Omega-3 reduces the risk of sudden cardiovascular mortality (GISSI Prevention).

    Further studies, conducted on healthy subjects without previous episodes of heart phenomena (primary prevention studies), have shown a beneficial effect on Omega-3 over normal cardiovascular functioning.

  • Taking Omega-3 makes you fatty?

    The short answer is no. In fact, each 1 gram OMEGOR® Mega 3  capsule has little more than 10 calories. Three capsules of 1 gram OMEGOR® Mega 3 contain about 32 calories, which is the equivalent of half an apple. Various rats studies suggest that Omega-3s actually reduce fat formation and size (adipocytes). Omega-3s are also used predominantly as constituents of cellular membranes, not for energy purposes. For these reasons, assuming OMEGOR® Mega 3  does not make you fatty, indeed the reverse is true.

  • Why should I take Omega-3 supplements?

    Marine Omega-3 fatty acids are important to achieve a normal and good balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory components in your body (see also “Fatty acids and local hormones”). In addition Omega-3 is important for a natural and healthy development and growth. A number of documented scientific studies show that Omega-3 (EPA and DHA) are important for our cardiovascular health, fetus development, cognitive performance, mood and behavior, to mention some.
