We recommend that you take 1-2 teaspoons of Innate Choice Omega Sufficiency per day.
Research indicates that sufficient intake of omega-3 fatty acids is important for heart health, blood sugar regulation, brain health, emotional health, digestive health, bone health, digestive health, immune health, and cancer prevention.¹ This is because omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that all humans require in sufficient amounts for health and the prevention of illness.
For most people omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake is now roughly 11 times that of omega-3. For health and the prevention of illness this ratio should be closer to 1:1.² Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids may act as promoters in the development of inflammation and cancer, whereas omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and preventative for not only cancer but many other illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.³
We recommend Innate Choice Omega Sufficiency as it is the purest, most natural fish oil available with a natural EPA/DHA ratio and no artificial chemical concentration, making it perfectly aligned with the human genetic requirements for Omega-3 consumption.
If you choose to purchase a different Omega-3 supplement, we highly recommend that you source one with the following attributes:
- Dosage: 450mg of EPA and 300mg of DHA per 20 kilos of body weight.
- Natural triglyceride form of Omega-3
- Natural EPA/DHA ratio
- Not artificially concentrated
- Free of heavy metals and other environmental contaminants
- Sustainably sourced from wild fish such as anchovy or sardine (not farmed).
- Stored in a dark glass bottle to avoid or reduce oxidation
