Benefits of Pronova Pure® omega-3s

  • We provide with Pronova Pure® omega-3s highly concentrated EPA and DHA fatty acids. Our superior purification technology removes unwanted lipids such as saturated fats, cholesterol and trans fats.
  • We provide with our broad omega-3 portfolio products which are extremely well studied, demonstrating their benefits to heart health. Most of these studies have supported omega-3 as beneficial and highlighted its cardiovascular benefits.
  • We meet consumer needs for convenience and compliance by providing effective doses of omega-3s in small serving sizes (i.e. soft gelatin capsules).

In some societies, our modern diets have reduced consumption of fish severely. Recent surveys reveal low intakes of beneficial EPA and DHA in many countries and population groups globally. Supplements can improve the supply of omega-3 for healthier living by compensating for this reduced intake.

Source of omega-3 fatty acids

The omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (EPA and DHA) have been a part of cells and organisms for millions of years. EPA and DHA are long-chain poly-unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids abundant in seafood and other marine products such as oils from fish, krill and algae. Humans can only synthesize the fatty acids at a slow rate. PronovaPure omega-3 concentrates are sourced from marine fish origin.
