How do you know if you have a good quality omega-3?

With many omega-3 dietary supplements, it is valuable to understand some good quality algae and fish oil caracteristics. Oil should be clear to light yellow in colour and has a slight marine odor.

Omega 3's oxidize fast, this reduces the quality and functionality of omega 3. It is therefore important that as little oxygen as possible gets to the omega 3. This is possible through qualitative manufacture and encapsulation under nitrogen, like NewDay, and it's why the softgels are packed individually (in blisters).

For those who want to understand it more in detail, next follows a small chemistry lesson


01

The fish and algae oil contain various fatty acids, including DHA/EPA, the so called "polyunsaturated fatty acids", they are healthy and essential, because your body cannot produce them in suficient quantities so you should get it from your diet.

02

All naturally occurring oils and fats have a different fatty acid composition. Each fat consists of a combination of:
A) Saturated (without double bonds) fatty acids and; If you were to stack the fatty acids, a solid structure would appear with saturated fatty acids;
B) Unsaturated (with double bonds) fatty acids. The double bonds cause a "kink" in the fatty acid.  The structure is looser, because more space remains between the fatty acids.

03

Compared to saturated fats, unsaturated fats are less stable. This means that when another substance (oxygen) is added, the fatty acids (omega 3's) oxidize quickly, this reduces the quality and functionality of omega 3.

Therefore, as little oxygen as possible should get to omega 3. This is possible through qualitative manufacturing, encapsulation under nitrogen and individual packed softgels.

NewDay is manufactured under the best conditions and packaged individually, providing top notch supplements.
