The role of omega-3

"You are what you eat" – it sounds like a cliché, but there’s a lot of truth in it. To function well and stay healthy your body needs healthy food and beverage every day.

The right balance is essential

A balanced diet contains at least the three basic building blocks for the body - proteins, carbohydrates and fats - in the right proportions for an optimal health.


The fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) help to maintain a normal heart function. The availability of building materials - like fatty acids - in the body mainly depends on what we take in through our food. 

Our bodies can make some fatty acids out of others. But that’s not the case for omega-3 and omega-6 - hence their name, ‘essential fatty acids’.

So we are completely dependent on our nutrition for the quantity of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that is available in our cells.

Why is a healthy omega-3 content so important?

A healthy balance between omega-6 and omega-3 is very important for the make-up of fats in the body’s cells, and for their optimal function. Research has shown that the intake of omega-3 fatty acids is lower than the intake of other types.

Our western diet is rich in omega-6, but low in essential omega-3 fatty acids. This means that the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in our cells is out of balance. Minami supplements contain omega-3 and no ‘filling’ or unneeded omega-6 fatty acids, so they optimise the ratio of
omega-6 to omega-3.
