The Omega-3 supplement by humanpeople is a potent source of essential fatty acids, specifically EPA and DHA, that supports brain health, skin health, and cardiovascular wellness, and helps balance inflammatory response.
The need to know
What are the benefits?
High EPA & DHA content
Supports brain and skin health
Improves cardiovascular health
Balances the inflammatory response
Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are long-chain polyunsaturated fats that play crucial roles in the human body. They are key components of cell membranes and are involved in various biological functions.
For brain health, DHA is a major structural component of neurons in the brain. Adequate levels of DHA are necessary for normal brain development and function. It is also linked with improved memory and cognitive performance.
In skin health, Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain the health and integrity of the skin barrier. They also have anti-inflammatory effects that can help reduce inflammation associated with various skin conditions.
For cardiovascular health, EPA and DHA help lower triglycerides, reduce blood pressure, and slow plaque development in the arteries. They also have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
In terms of inflammation, both EPA and DHA have potent anti-inflammatory properties. They do this by helping produce eicosanoids and resolvins, anti-inflammatory substances.
How will I know its working?
Positive effects of omega-3 supplementation can manifest as improved memory and cognitive function, better cardiovascular health, healthier skin with a reduction in dry patches, and reduced inflammation.
When to take it?
Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet. It is best taken before food to reduce any reflux from the strong fatty acids. It will also aid the absorption of other fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients.

Did you know?
The human body cannot produce omega-3 fatty acids, which makes them essential nutrients that must be obtained through diet or supplementation.
Not all omega-3 fatty acids are the same. EPA and DHA, primarily found in fatty fish and algae, are more potent than ALA, which is found in plants.
Omega-3 fatty acids are sometimes called "fish oil" because they are commonly found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and tuna.
