…with a daily boost of Omega-3 and Vitamin D!
Two of the most beneficial nutrients for health and wellbeing are omega-3 and vitamin D, but unfortunately, they are often the nutrients people are lacking. While similar in their benefits, each of these supplements has specific capabilities that target different areas of the body and can impact overall health.
Daily Boost of Greatness
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are super beneficial health boosters which contribute to the normal function of the heart, help to maintain healthy blood pressure and reduce blood triglycerides, while omega-3 DHA also helps to maintain normal brain function and vision. You need to get omega-3s from the foods you eat as our bodies cannot produce this important nutrient. Surprisingly, according to an IPSOS/MRBI survey, a massive 89% of Irish people are not consuming enough oily fish (e.g., sardines, anchovies) in their diet, so there is often a need to supplement with a premium fish oil such as Eskimo-3.
Tha Sunshine Vitamin
Vitamin D is fast becoming known as a “super-nutrient and is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of nutrition. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, a healthy immune system and muscular function. What’s now becoming apparent is that Vitamin D is crucial when it comes to activating your immune system. It helps to keep the “guards” of your immune system alert, therefore allowing you to quickly and effectively fight off invaders before they can develop into a full-blown infection.
How much do I need? The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) state that you need 250mg omega-3 EPA and DHA daily to support heart health and 250mg omega-3 DHA to support healthy brain function and vision. According to The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) at Trinity College Dublin, it is recommended that you get 10-20 ug vitamin D per day via diet or supplementation to maintain adequate levels.
Starting a healthy habit and sticking to it is all about making it as easy as possible to be part of your day. With Eskimo-3 products, there are lots of ways to make supplements part of your everyday – simply drizzle a spoonful of Eskimo-3, Eskimo Brain 369 or Eskimo-3 Kids Liquid on porridge, add a teaspoon into your morning smoothie or yoghurt, or pop the Eskimo-3 Extra Capsules or Eskimo-3 Kids chewable with omega-3 and vitamin D in your handbag so they’re always to hand when you’re on the go.
For adults, it depends on your main focus.
Choose Eskimo-3 Omega-3 and Vitamin E for general health, heart health and if you just want omega-3. The liquid contains 1700mg omega-3 in one teaspoon so very high strength. Liquids can be added to smoothies, yoghurts, dressings etc. The original Eskimo-3 is also available in easy to swallow 500mg capsules.
Choose Eskimo Brain 369 if you are looking for a complex of omega-3 6 and 9. It also contains vitamin D and CoQ10. Its main focus is brain function and vision. It contains omega-6 GLA for hormone regulation. If you don’t consume many foods rich in healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocado, olive oil etc. then Eskimo Brain 369 is a good option. Eskimo Brain 369 is available in a pleasant lemon flavour liquid or capsules.
Choose Eskimo-3 Extra if you’re looking for an omega-3 and vitamin D one a day capsule. It contains 800mg omega-3 and 20ug vitamin D3 (400% NRV) in each capsule. Ideal for anyone looking for general health, immunity, bones and joint support. If you don’t want omega-6 or 9, these are a good capsule option for omega-3 with the added benefit of vitamin D.
With homeschooling back again, it has never been so important to nourish your child’s brain to keep them focused. There are two options for children. Eskimo-3 Kids liquid (1-12 years) or Eskimo-3 Kids chewable DHA+. (3 years +).
The Eskimo-3 kids liquids contain a mixture of omega-3 6 and 9 with 5ug vitamin D (100% recommended for children) plus vitamin e for freshness. This is available in tutti frutti ( raspberry type flavor) or orange flavour. If your child finds it difficult to take it off the spoon, the liquids can be easily added to smoothies, yoghurt etc. The omega-3 is vital for brain function, vision, focus while omega-6 is good for mood. Vitamin D is vital for healthy bones and immunity.
The other option is the omega-3 chewable– it’s soft to chew and very well liked. It’s one a day – contains omega-3 rich in DHA for brain function, vision. Also contains choline for memory and concentration, biotin which calms the nervous system and 10ug vitamin d (200% recommended for children) – good for bones and immunity. As you can see, both would be beneficial- it’s down to personal preference. We have good feedback for both from parents.
Whether your teenager is doing state exams or just trying to keep up with homeschooling, choose Eskimo Brain 369 which is suitable for adults and children aged 12 years +.
