Author: ANCP Date Posted:19 April 2016
We’ve all heard about the health benefits of both Krill Oil and Fish Oil and I know you are wondering what makes Calamari Oil stand out compared to the other omega 3 sources. Well, let’s find out! Calamari Oil, sometimes referred to as squid oil, has more omega 3 essential fatty acids than standard Fish Oil and Krill Oil combined! This amazing oil contains nearly four times the amount of DHA than a standard 1000mg Fish Oil Capsule and nearly seven times the amount in a standard Krill Oil Capsule, significantly reducing the amount of capsules you have to take daily to get the recommended amounts of omega-3s.
Calamari Oil is supercharged with high levels of the omega 3 essential fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is an important structural component of cell membranes in the brain, retina and central nervous system. DHA is needed for the maintenance of a normal healthy brain throughout life as well as healthy brain and cognitive function as we age.
With our current ageing population and brain and memory health being a major focus for many of us, you will be happy to know that higher dietary intakes of DHA may be associated with better cognitive function in the elderly.
Research also suggests that DHA may play a role in learning and memory function. Calamari Oil is also very important for eye health as DHA is required for healthy eye development and supports the health of the retina. Studies have suggested that DHA plays a role in retinal and visual function.
You can see now how important DHA is to our health and in particular our brain and eye health, this starts right from the beginning of our lives, at conception. DHA is vitally important to take during pregnancy as it is crucial for normal brain development and cognitive function in the foetus and infant.
Calamari Oil may also be beneficial for arthritis suffers as it helps provide temporary relief of the pain of arthritis and may help reduce joint swelling and inflammation associated with arthritis.
