Omega-3 & Fish Oil Capsules & Tablets

Despite knowing the importance of Omega-3 in our diets, only a third of people in the UK eat the recommended two portions of fish per week, which means they might not be getting enough Omega-3. Fish oil capsules, such as Ultra Omega-3, can be an easy way to introduce extra Omega-3 into your diet. These Omega-3 tablets include vitamin E, which helps to protect the high purity oil, and use a pioneering orange flavoured Odourmask™ shell to help prevent a fishy aftertaste.

Omega-3 for Kids

Omega-3 is an important nutrient for kids but it can be enough for them to obtain enough from their diet, if they are not consuming enough Omega-3 rich foods, such as fatty fish. An Omega-3 supplement can be an easy way to round out any gaps in their diet. When it comes to Omega-3 for kids, quality matters. All of our fish oil only comes from sustainable fisheries in highly regulated, clean sea environments. Wellkid Peppa Pig Omega-3 are vegan Omega-3 chewable gummies, in a natural orange flavour that kids love.

Frequently Asked Questions

Omega-3s are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid found in foods such as fatty fish, fish oils, walnuts, flax seeds & algae. The three main Omega-3 fats are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made efficiently by the body and must therefore be obtained through the diet. They play numerous roles in the body including the maintenance of normal brain function, normal heart function and the maintenance of normal vision.

Learn more in The Beginner’s Guide To Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), can help support the body in a number of ways:

  • DHA helps to maintain normal vision and contributes to normal brain function. (The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg DHA).

  • DHA and EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart. (The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA).

  • Maternal intake of DHA contributes to normal foetal brain and eye development. (A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids for adults).

Omega-3 is good to support a number of areas of health. The Omega-3 fatty acid provides DHA. DHA helps to support normal vision, brain function and the normal function of the heart. Omega-3 is also good for prenatal nutrition, as the mother’s intake of DHA contributes to normal foetal brain and eye development.

Yes, fish oil is a rich source of two omega-3s called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

You can take omega-3 at any time of day but it’s recommended to do so with a meal, which will help with absorption and reduce the chances of any digestive discomfort.

Fish oil is a good source of essential fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA. These have a number of benefits in supporting all round health and wellbeing including normal brain and heart function.

Cod liver oil and Omega-3 are not exactly the same. Omega-3 are a type of fatty acids, the main ones being alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Cod liver oil comes from the livers of cod fish and includes omega-3. Typically cod liver oil contains lower levels of Omega-3 than Omega-3 fish oil.

Omega-3 fats are abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, anchovies and herring. They can also be found in a number of plant-based foods including nuts (especially walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans), seeds (especially flax, chia, hemp and pumpkin), seaweed and algae, leafy greens and tofu.

The NHS recommend that a healthy balanced diet should include at least 2 portions of fish a week, including 1 of oily fish (such as salmon or sardines).

Unlike some other essential nutrients, there are no set recommendations for Omega-3 intake.

Ultra Omega-3 - It is recommended you take two Ultra Omega 3 capsules per day. To help prevent any aftertaste, Ultra Omega-3 capsules include an orange flavoured odour mask shell.

Ultra Omega 3-6-9 - Take one to two Ultra Omega 3-6-9 capsules per day.

Ultra Cod Liver Oil - Two Ultra Cod Liver Oil capsules per day. Ultra Fish Oils capsules incorporate an orange flavoured odour mask shell.

Any supplements are best taken with a main meal. Swallow capsules with water or a cold drink.

With all these products please do not exceed the recommended intake.

Although fatty fish, such as salmon, are perhaps the best-known source of Omega-3, there are also many plant-based sources. These include nuts, such as walnuts and hazelnuts, seeds, like chia and hemp, as well as seaweeds and algae.

Our Wellkid Peppa Pig Omega-3 and Wellkid Marvel Omega-3 gummies provide a vegan source of Omega-3 fats, for kids, in a delicious orange-flavoured chewable gummy  that they will love.

Omega-3 is an important nutrient throughout pregnancy and breast-feeding, however women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should not take cod liver oil as it contains high levels of vitamin A which should be avoided.

What the mother consumes has the potential to be passed on to the developing child, therefore only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil has been used in Pregnacare Omega-3 capsules found in Pregnacare Conception Max for before pregnancy, and in Pregnacare Plus, Max and Breastfeeding for during and after pregnancy to ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.

During pregnancy, DHA maternal intake contributes to normal foetal brain & eye development*. Pregnacare Plus provides the original Pregnacare micronutrient tablets containing a careful combination of 19 vitamins and minerals, including 400µg folic acid and 10µg vitamin D, advised by the UK Department of Health during pregnancy. It includes a special Omega-3 capsule to provide a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid, providing 300mg DHA. 

During breast-feeding, maternal intake of the omega-3 DHA contributes to the normal brain and eye development of breast-fed infants. Infants have limited capability to synthesise fatty acids, which therefore must be obtained directly from external sources such as the mother's milk. During breast-feeding, the infant's brain continues to take up DHA and 15% of brain growth occurs after birth. 

After pregnancy, maternal intake of DHA supports the normal eye and brain development of breastfed infants. Pregnacare Breast-feeding provides post-natal micronutrient tablets and high purity Omega-3 capsules. It includes 700mg calcium and 300mg omega 3 DHA, as recommended by experts when breast-feeding**. Each capsule provides 300mg DHA, the level recommended by international experts for mums during lactation.

*A beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg DHA in addition to the recommended daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids for adults.
