Omega Supp TM is an omega-3 supplement containing EPA and DHA. These essential fatty acids are vital to health but cannot be made by the body so must be obtained from food. The best source of EPA/DHA is cold-water oily fish (salmon, herring, etc.).
These fatty acids have many functions in the body and are a major source of energy. Omega-3 fatty acids are relatively rare, but omega-6 are plentiful in the diet. The resulting imbalance can cause certain diseases that require omega-3 supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids have demonstrated beneficial effects in many fields of veterinary medicine: in dermatology, for example, they are used to improve coat condition and to alleviate atopic conditions (eczema, asthma or allergies). In cardiology, they have an anti-arrhythmic action; in orthopaedics, they relieve pain, reduce limping and have an anti-inflammatory effect; in neurology, they promote brain development of the foetus and young animal, protect against ageing and can help in the treatment of epilepsy. They can also be beneficial for kidney disease and are even used in ophthalmology to alleviate the symptoms of dry eye syndrome (keratoconjunctivitis sicca).
Omega Supp TM comes as a plant-based capsule containing fish oil and is available in packs of 30 or 60.
