Why does Opti3 contain Carrageenan?
We use a small amount of Carrageenan (which is of seaweed origin) to form our vegetal capsule. It is a brilliant alternative to animal-derived gelatine. The level we use is incredibly low, and its safety has been extensively proven. We are aware of concerns that surfaced a few years ago, specifically with degraded Carrageenan (which is actually known as poligeenan and not permitted in food anyway) in animals. We use pharmaceutical-quality, refined material. Its safety has been continuously ratified by all authorities including US FDA and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
There really is no comparison. Flaxseed Oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). ALA is not equivalent to EPA and DHA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted in order to be effective. Unfortunately this conversion is very low. Flaxseed oil does not provide the body with sufficient levels of Omega-3.
What are the benefits of Omega-3?
There are many reported benefits of taking Omega-3 supplements. This includes hearth health, increased alertness and attentiveness, lowering of cholesterol, eye health and benefits to various diseases and ailments. For further details, click here.
How do I take Opti3?
Opti3 is supplied as convenient soft capsules. Simply take 1-2 Opti3 capsules each day with food (taking with food helps absorption by the body). 2 capsules provides 300mg EPA and 500mg DHA. If you prefer, you can pierce the capsules and take the Opti3 oil itself, either directly in the mouth or by adding it to foods. This method is often preferred by the elderly who may have trouble swallowing capsules, or to help children to take it.
