Immune health

VivoMega Omega-3 supplementation may aid the immune system by lowering inflammation and enhancing immune cell function.

Infection & Disease

The immune system protects your body against infection and disease. Omega-3 EPA and DHA are essential to the development and performance of the immune system.

Anti-inflammatory

New research has discovered that Omega-3 EPA and DHA produce specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPM’s) which are not only anti-inflammatory but also inflammation resolving.

Immune Function

Studies have shown that Omega-3 EPA and DHA may specifically enhance the immune function of white blood cells known as B cells.

Our Body’s Defence Mechanism

The Immune system is a complex structure of organs, tissues and white blood cells located throughout the body. The immune system recognizes foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi as well as abnormal cells and distinguishes them from the body’s healthy cells. Many factors can impact our immune system such as age, sleep, genes as well as our lifestyle and diet. Getting the right nutrients is important for our immune system to stay healthy. A large body of scientific evidence has shown that EPA and DHA, the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil, help support the body’s immune response and regulate the internal repair system that manages our response to inflammation.

Inflammation

Prolonged inflammation can become chronic and ultimately lead to illness. Consuming marine sourced Omega-3 supplements as well as oily fish rich in EPA and DHA has been clinically proven to promote and restore the body’s imbalance of necessary lipid mediators and thereby reduce inflammation. This happens as a result of our body converting EPA and DHA into anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving mediators that regulate inflammation. There is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that increasing the consumption of Omega-3 EPA and DHA reduces the risk of inflammatory and autoimmune disease.

Recommended Daily Intake

Global health authorities recommend an Omega-3 EPA and DHA intake of 250 to 1000 mg a day for adults and 100 to 250 mg a day for adolescents, children and infants older than six months. Consuming up to 5 grams of Omega-3 EPA and DHA a day is considered safe by the FDA and EFSA.
