Opti3 is a true alternative to fish oil omega-3
Opti3 offers a true alternative to fish oil omega-3 by providing both EPA and DHA to the body. EPA and DHA are the correct omega-3 forms required by the body, allowing rapid incorporation into plasma and membrane lipids.
Opti3: naturally sourced Omega-3 fatty acids
Oily fish are rich sources of omega-3 EPA & DHA, but this is actually due to their diet of algae. Our exclusive Opti3 complex is a novel combination of algae and plant-based ingredients to provide the body with EPA & DHA. The balanced and innovative complex provides the maximum EU permitted daily algal DHA dose (200mg) and EPA both directly and partly through a proven conversion from Stearidonic acid (SDA). The Opti3 complex also provides a balanced total combination of Omega-3, 6, and 9.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
One of the main aims of Opti3 is to provide effective omega-3 nutrition to supplement vegetarians and vegan diets. We are proud to have full registration of our product with the Vegetarian Society and Vegan Society.
Frequently asked questions
What is Opti3?
Opti3 is a 100% natural, high strength EPA and DHA supplement. Opti3 is designed to offer the benefits of Omega-3, without the need for Fish or any animal ingredients.
I’m a vegan, can I take Opti3?
Yes. Opti3 is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, as it contains 100% natural ingredients. The product is registered Opti3 with the Vegan and Vegetarian Societies, having submitted full product and ingredient details to both for approval.
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). 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 option preferred by the elderly who may have trouble swallowing capsules, or to help children to take it.
Can I take Opti3 when I’m pregnant?
Absolutely! And also during Breast Feeding. There are many benefits of taking Opti3 during this time.
Please explain the importance of EPA & DHA?
Eicosapentaeonic Acid (EPA), Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA) are the three types of fatty acids collectively referred to as Omega-3s, due to their chemical structure. EPA and DHA are long-chain Omega-3s, whereas ALA is a short chain omega-3. The long-chain Omega-3s are more efficient and act faster in the body. EPA and DHA offer numerous health benefits. When we talk about the importance of Omega-3 to our health, it is specifically EPA and DHA that offer the benefits.
What is algae?
We obtain our Omega-3 fatty acids from algae and other natural ingredients. Algae is all around us, from seaweed we see washed up on beaches, to the green and red coloured substance we see in our ponds and birdbaths. Algaes form the staple diet for fish, which is where oily fish obtain their Omega-3 fatty acids. We use special algae grown in a fully-controlled pharmaceutical facility to obtain our Omega-3. Unlike algae found in the sea, we can guarantee the presence of absolutely zero contaminants or toxins.
Can I give Opti3 to my pets?
It is very common for Opti3 to be given to cats and dogs. Some of our customers pierce the capsules and add the oil to pet food, but we’re told some pets are quite happy munching the full capsules! There are reports of specific benefits to animals. There is no problem in giving Opti3 to your pets.
I’m not a vegetarian or vegan so shall I just take fish oil?
There are problems with fish oil. Fish can contain harmful levels of contaminants and toxins including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. In addition to the safety issues, there are growing concerns about diminishing fish stocks in our seas, largely due to unsustainable fishing practises. We recommend you take advice from the Food and Drug Administration about the latest safety guidelines associated with consuming fish and taking fish oil supplements. Opti3 offers an alternative that is 100% safe, 100% free from contaminants and toxins and does not impact on fish stocks at all.
How does Opti3 compare to other Vegetarian Omega-3 supplements?
Unless other natural Omega-3 supplements talk about EPA & DHA, they cannot be compared to Opti3. Most plant-based Omega-3 supplements including Flaxseed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Chia Oil provide ALA. Please read the FAQ above about the importance of EPA & DHA for full details. Every ingredient in Opti3 is guaranteed to be 100% Vegetarian and Vegan suitable.
Food allergies and Opti3
Opti3 is free from wheat, dairy and sugar-based ingredients. It is 100% free from toxins and contaminants. Allergies to fish oil are usually associated to proteins in fish, so such individuals should be fine to take Opti3 (although we recommend consulting your Doctor first).
Opti3 does contain a soy-derived antioxidant. If you do have a Soy-allergy, please seek medical advise before taking Opti3.
When shouldn’t I take Opti3?
Opti3 is designed to be suitable for everyone, but if you are taking blood thinning drugs (e.g. Warfarin), please speak to your Doctor before taking Opti3 or indeed any nutritional supplement. If you are taking anticoagulant or antihypertensive medications, please do not take Opti3 or any Omega-3 supplements.
Opti3 contains soy derived natural antioxidants. It is free from sugar, wheat and dairy products.
Warning Always consult your doctor before taking any supplements. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
