Holidays are here again, so it’s time to pack your bags. And you probably didn’t think to pack omega-3. We even see customers stopping their subscriptions during the summer. Don’t do it! And we are not saying this out of self-interest 😉 On the contrary, it is important to take omega-3s in the summer. Why?
Omega-3s support quite a few processes in your body. Every day, all year round. Not only do your heart, brain and eyes need omega-3 to function optimally, your immune system does too. Even though we feel healthier in the summer, we remain susceptible. Vulnerable to the flu, corona or colds. So keep giving your system a helping hand. Especially if you fly or spend a lot of time in air-conditioned rooms.
The omega-3/omega-6 ratio in your body is also important. If this gets out of balance, your body becomes more susceptible to inflammation. On holiday, most of us tend to eat easier and fattier food, which is often rich in omega-6. So to compensate, it is important to (continue to) use omega-3. Omega-3 has anti-inflammatory properties.
Research with mice shows that when consumed daily, omega-3 fatty acids help to protect the skin from UV damage. EPA in particular strengthens the skin’s natural defence mechanism. In combination with the antioxidant astaxanthin, the cell membranes are protected against free radicals and cell ageing is combated. Testa Vegan Krill Oil contains these ingredients. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still apply sunscreen. So take sunscreen with you. Or better still, avoid the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
In summer, we generally eat more fish. To experience the protective effects of omega-3, experts say you should eat fatty fish at least three times a week. However, this is not recommended, because you would be ingesting too many toxins and heavy metals from the ocean. So let the fish swim, algae oil is a safe alternative. Also in summer.
