Numerous clinical studies have shown that that EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid, a component of Omega 3 fish oil) is effective in treating depression when taken in high doses, most specifically in a ratio of at least 6 times more EPA than DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
The Other Option’s OMEGA-UP™ boasts a superior 7:1 EPA:DHA ratio. The omega-3 essential fatty acids in OMEGA-UP™ are extracted from anchovies and sardines.
WHY ANCHOVIES AND SARDINES?
Fish oil is known as one of the richest sources of omega-3, it’s also particularly high in EPA. Because anchovies and sardines are small and have a relatively short lifespan, they are far less likely to be contaminated by mercury and other toxins. They’re also sustainable to harvest. The EPA in OMEGA-UP™ is obtained from the South Pacific, considered to be some of world’s cleanest waters and a sustainable source.
THE SAFEST FORM OF OMEGA-3 FISH OIL
The fish oil extracted is a pharmaceutical grade omega-3 that has been molecularly distilled to remove heavy metals and toxins, making it a safe form of Omega-3 fish oil. Best of all, you’ll find there’s no fishy aftertaste when you take OMEGA-UP™ fish oil capsules.
At The Other Option, we ensure that our natural health products are of the highest quality, sustainably sourced, and internationally certified. The factory that manufactures OMEGA-UP™ is an accredited member of the Global Organisation for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED).
Because OMEGA-UP™ has so many far-reaching and significant benefits and we’re so meticulous about our sourcing and manufacturing processes, we’re confident our product offers far more than your ordinary fish oil!
“My son and I have been taking OMEGA-UP™ for almost 2 years now, and I can highly recommend this product. Not only is it an excellent supplement to take along with anti-depressant medication
but an unexpected “side-effect” was that my osteoarthritis pain has disappeared, and I no longer have to take the anti-inflammatory medication, Coxflam, for my joints.” Angela Drescher, Cape Town
