A quick note on EPA and DHA
Before we get into the nitty gritty it's important to note there are two types of Omega 3 called EPA and DHA. Whether you require more EPA or DHA depends very much on your life stage and personal health. If you want to know more about EPA and DHA and what each of them do, we'd recommend reading this guide first.
Life & Soul liquid (previously Lion Heart)
Life & Soul (previously Lion Heart liquid) was the first product we launched. Our founder Melanie wanted to create the strongest, purest fish oil on the market and this was the outcome. One teaspoon (5ml) has 3500mg of Omega 3, including 2000mg of EPA and 1000mg of DHA plus 500mg of other Omega 3s, making it among the strongest concentrated fish oils you can buy. If you're looking for a do-it-all Omega 3 that has fast results, Life & Soul liquid is for you.
Lion Heart Mini Capsules
We use exactly the same oil as our Lion Heart liquid, so the quality is exactly the same. If you’re oil shy or like to travel with your Omega 3 – whether across the world, at the office or in your gym bag - than we’d recommend Lion Heart Capsules. Four tiny capsules will give you 1300mg of Omega 3 (that’s 860mg EPA and 440mg DHA). Plus, they’re small and easy to swallow. They're also suitable for pescatarians as we use fish gelatine.
Lion Heart Maxi Capsules
Both Mini and Maxi Capsules provide 1300mg, the difference is the size. If you prefer smaller, easy to swallow capsules then our mini capsules are best. If you don't have a problem swallowing big pills (unlike us, we're big babies!) and want to take fewer each day, our Maxi capsules are for you!
Super Hero Liquid
Fussy eaters? One of the many stresses of parenthood. For your little ones to benefit from an Omega 3 supplement, it must have enough DHA (crucial for brain and eye development) and EPA, the two most important Omegas which you’ll find plenty of in Super Hero. Each 1ml dose (100 per bottle) contains 500mg DHA & 130mg EPA, equivalent to a whole of tin of sardines! It also comes with a handy dosing syringe.
Mindful is specifically formulated for brain health and when it comes to your grey matter, DHA takes a leading role. DHA is particularly concentrated in the brain where it accounts for up to 97% of the total Omega 3 fats. Mindful is a really easy and affordable way to get 560mg of DHA in one small daily capsule.
Bump & Glory Capsules
DHA is vital in pregnancy. It’s needed for healthy foetal development. It ensures cells in the brain, eyes and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly. This is why pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding need more DHA in their diet. One small capsule has 560mg DHA and 40mg EPA, plenty for you and your baby.
Marine Collagen Powder
As one of the staple ingredients in anti-ageing creams, collagen’s been a beauty industry favourite for some time now. But recently collagen has become increasingly popular as a food supplement. You’ll find it as a liquid, in capsules or as a collagen powder that can be stirred into drinks and used in cooking. It offers support to everything from our skin, muscles and bones to our fingernails and hair. What's not to love?!
If you want to take collagen for skin health, marine collagen is best as it's especially high in type I collagen, the kind most associated with anti-ageing. One standard size tablespoon of our Pure Marine Collagen Powder Skinful has 5,000mg (5g) of Type I collagen peptides.
P.S. Collagen and fish oil are complementary and we recommend trying them together. You can save 10% on our Skin Duos.
