Omega-3 science

This section of our website contains a wealth of information for those who want to understand a little more about omega-3 science. As one of the most widely researched nutrients, this is a vast topic – so we’ve condensed it into sections.

We start at the very beginning, introducing the role of omega-3s in the evolution of the human brain, bringing you right up to the current day where, despite an abundance of food, populations tend to be deficient in this essential nutrient. We describe the various types of omega fatty acids, distinguishing between the different forms of omega-3 fats, helping you to understand what to look for in a supplement depending on your goals and, finally, getting the most from your omega-3 supplement by aiding digestion and absorption.

Having read our omega-3 science resources, if you’d like to get your hands on more technical material, we’d recommend browsing our resources for Professionals, which include technical articles, product materials and webinars by our in-house nutrition scientists specifically for practitioners. Alternatively, our nutritionists would be more than happy to direct you to further reading on any of the topics outlined on our site.
