Omega 3 are polyunsaturated fatty acids essential to our balance. There are three types of omega 3 fatty acids:
- alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
- eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
- docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
While ALA is found in vegetable oils (such as chia, perilla or flaxseed), EPA and DHA are two fatty acids found mainly in fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna, sardines).
Nevertheless, the daily consumption of omega 3 is today much too low. It is estimated that nearly 9 out of 10 French people are deficient in EPA and DHA, which can have many consequences on health (cardiovascular and neurological problems, low morale...).
Since the body does not know how to produce them, they must be provided in sufficient quantities through food or, since food is not always sufficient to cover our needs, through supplementation.
Omega 3 contribute:
- to the normal function of the heart (250 mg EPA+DHA per day),
- to the maintenance of normal brain function (250 mg DHA per day),
- to the maintenance of normal vision (250 mg DHA daily),
- to improve memory and promote emotional balance.
WHY CHOOSE OUR OMEGA 3 FISH OIL ?
✓ Premium quality: our oil is highly concentrated in omega 3 in the natural form of triglycerides (which is bioavailable to the body). Each daily dose (2 capsules) provides an ideal balance of 420 mg EPA and 280 mg of DHA.
✓ High purity: our Epax® fish oil is purified using a patented molecular distillation process that eliminates all environmental pollutants and heavy metals. Its purity exceeds the standards set by the GOED.
✓ Controlled origin: our omega 3 is sustainably sourced from the pure waters of the Chilean and Peruvian Coasts. It is certified Friend of the Sea®. This label guarantees respectful fishing that best preserves biodiversity.
✓ Minimal oxidation: in order to preserve its nutritional and organoleptic qualities, our oil is stabilised by the XO® labelled process. This process guarantees an exceptional stability of the polyunsaturated fatty acids thanks to an enrichment in natural antioxidants (rosemary and tocopherol extracts).
✓ Freshness: Our easy to swallow capsules have no fish after taste.
✓ Made in France: our oil, extracted at low temperature and decontaminated in Aalesund, Norway, is stabilised and encapsulated in France. Our fish-based softgels are packaged in an ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 certified facility.

How well do omega 3 resist oxidation? What is the TOTOX of your product?
Oxidation is a normal process that occurs with all oils containing unsaturated fatty acids.
TOTOX is an index used to measure the rate of oxidation of omega 3. The lower it is, the less the oil is oxidised (rancid) and therefore the less the omega 3s it contains are destroyed.
It is therefore a very important index to check before buying omega 3. The maximum limit is 26.
The TOTOX of our omega 3 is less than 5 over the lifetime of our product. This very low index guarantees a maximum quantity of omega 3 in each capsule.
Can I consume omega 3 throughout the year?
Yes, it is possible (and even recommended) to consume omega 3 continuously, in order to balance your omega 3 and omega 6 ratio. Even at high doses, omega 3 are safe.
Do the capsules have a fish aftertaste?
We know it can be unpleasant to have a fish aftertaste, that's why our omega 3 are deodorized.
