OM3 Emotion: omega-3 475 mg, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) 375 mg, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) 50 mg.
OM3: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) 450 mg, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) 50 mg, polyunsaturated fatty acids 489 mg.
The scientific studies on the absorption of essential fatty acids in cell membranes demonstrate that it takes more or less three months to completely renew the tissues and do away with the adverse effects of a deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids. Consequently, it is advisable to take regularly, OM3, and for a period of three months if one wants to be able to judge the results. In order to be better able to assess the beneficial effects of the food supplement, we advise you to respond to questions relating to emotional well-being that you find on this website (respond the first time, and repeat the same test after three months). Anyway, you can often already see the first improvements within the first few weeks.
After a period of three months, you can try to limit the intake of OM3 in the use of a diet extremely rich in omega-3 (and by restricting the consumption of omega-6). In the event of a disruption of emotional balance, you must gradually decrease the dose of OM3 passing first at a dose of 2 capsules per day (instead of 3 capsules per day). After three months, you need to re-measure the results of this transitional phase. If you do not notice any degradation of the situation, you can skip the reduced dose and try, therefore, to limit yourself to a dose of one capsule per day. On the other hand, if, after three months, you need to re-see a worsening of the situation, you must again increase the dose.
The medical experts of the food sector, as the federal institute FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the United States, reported that a daily dose of 3 grams of omega-3 'may be considered to be entirely harmless' (for the panel of experts of the American Heart Association (american heart), a daily dose of 8 grams is acceptable see publication in the magazine qualified for cardiology).
As a reminder: the daily dose of 3 capsules of OM3 contains of 1.35 grams of omega-3.
3 capsules per day.
The initial dose recommended for OM3 amounted to 3 capsules per day (in one or several times). This corresponds to a daily intake of at least of 1050 mg (1.05 g) EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and of at most 150 mg of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which corresponds to a total of 1.2 g omega-3 per day. This corresponds to the amount of EPA used in clinical studies, the most recent.
The relationship between the fatty acid EPA (acid the most important for our emotional/psychic) and the fatty acid DHA is often insufficient (= 1.5 to 1 for the meat almost always lower than 4/1). This is the reason why OM3 offers a very high concentration of Omega-3 and a report to EPA/DHA very high.
In the case of very high doses (over 3 grams per day, which corresponds to 7 capsules of OM3), it may occur (very rarely) hematoma (bruising). This phenomenon is due to the fact that the capsules of OM3 to interfere with some mechanisms of coagulation (platelet aggregation, blood), as this can also occur with aspirin. This anticoagulant effect is, in general, considered to be one of the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. This same effect is also valid for aspirin. It is diminished likewise the risk of myocardial (infarction) and disorders of cerebrovascular. However, an OM3 could potentially become a problem for people who easily bruises, or who take anticoagulant medication (see below).
