The benefits of omega 3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) are well understood, providing support for brain, eye and heart health. Whilst research is still emerging, there is also evidence to suggest that they can provide benefits to athletes who follow intensive training regimes. Omega 3 fatty acids are most commonly consumed through oily fish or by taking a daily fish oil supplement. However, fish actually obtain their DHA and EPA by consuming microalgae. This advanced formulation is derived from a natural algal source which is rich in the omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. Veg-Omega 3 provides those who follow plant-based diets with a convenient and effective way of obtaining omega 3.
Why is Healthspan's better? Each Veg-Omega 3 capsule provides 340mg DHA and 170mg EPA. Healthspan strictly use the highest quality omega 3 oil from a pure, environmentally friendly and non-GMO marine microflora source called Schizochytrium sp. This ensures that they can consistently provide the highest levels of omega 3 fatty acids that are suitable for those following a plant-based diet.

Turmeric is most commonly known as the main spice used in curry powders to give them their taste and colour. However, the root of the turmeric plant contains ‘curcuminoids’ which have been widely used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, with a long history of traditional use in India and China. It’s these curcuminoids that have been of significant interest in recent sports nutrition research. Opti-Turmeric® contains 500mg liquid curcumin and 20mg vitamin C to support your immune and bone health as well as the normal function and formation of cartilage, which is essential for healthy joints.
Why is Healthspan's better? Absorption is the biggest factor to consider when choosing a turmeric supplement. Standard curcuminoids (the active ingredient in turmeric) aren't water soluble and are therefore very poorly absorbed by our bodies. This is where Healthspan's exclusive Opti-Turmeric® formulation offers its strength. Healthspan convert the curcuminoids into a fully water soluble and pH stable form, making it much more bioavailable than a standard turmeric tablet. In fact, it is 185 times better-absorbed and 7 times faster-acting than standard powdered turmeric.

Vitamin D is predominately synthesised in the skin through exposure to sunlight. Deficiency in vitamin D is common throughout the UK due to limited exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D can be obtained through food sources such as eggs, fortified cereals and oily fish, but is predominantly synthesised in the skin through exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D deficiency is common across populations throughout the UK and as a result of a low level of exposure to sunlight, vitamin D synthesis becomes almost impossible in the winter, especially amongst athletes that mainly train indoors. Vitamin D3 supplementation can play an important role in correcting vitamin D deficiency to ensure the maintenance of adequate to optimal levels.
