Omega-3 Benefits

Learn how the Life & Soul Omega-3 capsules benefits your body and mind.


Skin Health

Improves skin texture, tone, firmness and hydration.

Essential fatty acids are well known for regulating the skin's oil production and improving balanced hydration and fight red, dry, or itchy skin caused by skin disorders like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.

Omega-3’s help protect the skin against sun damage. One study showed that supplementation of 79 females with EPA derived from fish oil for 12 weeks shifted the balance of eicosanoids in the skin towards a less inflammatory species and helped protect the skin from the inflammatory effects of UV exposure.

Omega-3 fatty acids appear to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation via a number of mechanisms of action. Borage oil (a source of omega-6 GLA) has been shown to improve skin hydration.

Eye Health

Supports normal eye function.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the omega-3 essential fatty acids is a major structural lipid of retinal photoreceptor outer segment membranes.

Omega-3 is linked to a reduced risk of macular degeneration, one of the world’s leading causes of permanent eye damage and blindness.

A peer reviewed study published in the Journal of Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science showed that docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the omega-3 essential fatty acids, prevented age-related vision loss in lab tests.

Brain Health

Supports normal brain functioning.

The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are essential for normal brain function and development throughout all stages of life. 

The fatty acids are also crucial for maintaining normal brain function and are abundant in the cell membranes of brain cells, preserving cell membrane health and facilitating communication between brain cells.

There have also been experimental studies in animals which have shown that diets lacking omega 3 PUFA lead to substantial disturbances in neural function causing them to experience deficits in  learning and memory.

Supports healthy levels of inflammation.

The association between chronic inflammation and chronic disease is widely recognised. Chronic inflammation progresses silently. Most people don't realise they have chronic inflammation until the symptoms of an adverse health issue become apparent. 

The good news? There are simple things you can do to lower inflammation in your body and reduce your risk of developing the many diseases and adverse health conditions that accompany it and one of them includes taking a good quality Omega-3 supplement. 

Omega-3 fatty acids play a role in regulating the body's inflammatory process and might help regulate pain from inflammation.

They have been known to have potent anti-inflammatory actions in various inflammatory diseases, including psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Life & Soul Details

Why do we need Omega-3?

Just like a high quality multivitamin and mineral support, a top-quality fish oil should also be at the core of everyone’s supplement regime. With over 8500 clinical trials and peer reviewed published articles to back it up, a top quality fish oil is crucial for issues related to inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids are needed for every single cell in the body to function normally - and they have a particular importance for the skin, brain, heart, blood sugar metabolism and nervous system.

The only way to obtain omega-3 fatty acids is through diet or supplementation because the body doesn't produce them. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are two essential sources of Omega-3 fatty acids that are found in oily fish such as wild salmon, sardines and trout. However, most people do not consume these in the amounts required (4-5x a week) to obtain adequate levels of Omega-3 needed. And sadly, with fish also comes the risk of heavy metals and toxins. 

Therefore, taking a fish oil supplement such as Life & Soul Daily Capsules is an excellent way to ensure a good balance of these important essential fatty acids that support a healthy heart and blood vessels, brain and nerve function, muscles, bone and joint health, mood, and much more.

Not all Omega-3 supplements are made equally and unlike others in the market, Bare Biology is the only company that publishes full test results (certificate of analysis) for every single batch. They are also the only UK company certified by the International Fish Oil Standards programme, an independent laboratory that tests every single batch of the oils. You can therefore rest assured that you will be consuming the world’s highest standards for purity, potency and freshness.
