The parent acid in the Omega-3 family of polyunsaturates is alpha-linolenic acid which can be converted in the body to longer chain members such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). EPA may help keep the cardiovascular system healthy by maintaining normal blood lipid levels and normal platelet function, whilst DHA is believed to play an important role in the transmission of electrical impulses across synapses in the brain and in foetal retina development.

One reason why omega 3 is being so widely researched is that for many people their dietary intake has fallen to a point that is low enough to be affecting their health. This is why the government recommend that we eat oily fish, such as mackerel, once a week, and many nutritionists think that it should be as often as two or three times a week because oily fish is the main dietary source of Omega 3. Ideally everyone should eat on average 2 to 3 grams of omega 3 a day but it seems that few people achieve this level, especially if they eat little oily fish so supplementation is relevant for many and quite often considered more convenient.
Lamberts Pure Fish Oil capsules contain a concentrated fish oil which provides a full 700mg of Omega 3 per capsule, many 1000mg fish oil products contain just 350mg of Omega 3. This means that this product is one of the strongest available in the UK and is therefore widely recommended by practitioners. The fish oil undergoes a sophisticated purification process that ensures it is largely odour free, with levels of contaminants well below the strict EU maximum limits. The oil is then protected from oxidation while it is in the capsules by the inclusion of natural vitamin E.
