Linseed and hemp oil have a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids in the form of α-linolenic acid (ALA). The problem is that the body must first convert the fatty acid ALA into the actually important fatty acids EPA and DHA. However, our enzymes can only convert a maximum of 10% of ALA into EPA and even a maximum of 0.5% into DHA. Even with a very high intake of ALA, it is therefore not possible to achieve good values for EPA and DHA – the actually important omega-3 fatty acids.
A vegetable omega-3 oil, with high marine omega-3 fatty acid content (EPA and DHA), is Omega-3 Vegan. With just one teaspoon per day, you take in 2,000 mg of the valuable marine fatty acids – 100% fish-free. Omega-3 Vegan can also be taken by children and adolescents without any problems. The following rule of thumb should be observed: 2,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids (1 tsp/5 ml) are suitable for an adult person weighing 70 kg or more. This means for example for a 35 kg child 1/2 teaspoon omega-3 per day or 1 teaspoon every 2nd day.
