Eskimo Omega 3 Fish Oil 210ml
How to Choose the Best Fish Oil
Why buy a Fish Oil for £30 when you can pick one up for less than £10?
Great question, and it’s very simple.
It’s thought at least 3 quarters of fish oil brands are rancid BEFORE they even reach the shop shelf! And, it’s well shown that rancid oil creates unwanted and dangerous inflammation when consumed.
This damage to the oil can happen at any stage from extraction to manufacturing and storage.
The main reason for this is that supplements are poorly regulated in the UK. In fact, it’s incredibly easy for anyone to contact a supplement supplier, order a batch of Fish Oil or any other supplement, slap their brand label on it, and start selling with no real understanding or science behind the product!
Which is the reason why so many brands are available.
But wouldn’t it be nice and reassuring to have a brand that you can trust, one that never comprises the key aspects of high-quality Fish Oil listed above.
Nutri’s focus is on supporting Nutritional Practitioners with the high-quality supplements their client needs, everything is produced from the finest nutrients and blended exactly for the needs of the body – based on what the current science states.
I use their fish oil 3-4 days of the week and want to share these wonderful products with you.
So, quality drives prices, and my honest advice is always to purchase a high-quality fish oil or avoid them altogether.
There are some really excellent brands available and Nutri’s Eskimo 3 Fish Oil range is as fine as any you’ll find anywhere.

There certainly isn’t research or science showing that taking Fish Oil will be a magical weight-loss tool. In fact, as far as I know, there isn’t anything on the planet with those properties despite what some products may claim!
However, a fish should be taken as part of a healthy approach to weight loss as it is thought that stable fish fatty acids can actually increase the speed of certain chemical reactions in the body, burning fat to form carbon dioxide, water, and energy, which can bring about a decrease in body weight, particularly when they replace saturated fats (meat and dairy) in a diet.
Nutri aims to provide doses in their optimal and natural quantities. The product feature on this page contains 1600mg of Omega 3 fatty acids.
Yes, it appears safe to take Fish Oil while pregnant providing you are using a product with high purity and stability levels but always discuss your requirements with your GP or medical professional.
Science supports mothers who take omega-3 PUFA supplements during pregnancy lower the risk of premature birth, increase the length of pregnancy and birth weight, and can improve child neurological development.
Evidence also suggests omega-3 PUFA may help to prevent preeclampsia and postpartum depression although more research is needed.
Regularly taking Fish Oil does appear to help relieve joint pain when taken on a consistent basis, a minimum of 3 months. Fish Oil will impact joint pain by lowering levels of inflammation and therefore pain.
As the question above, yes science shows taking an Omega 3 Fish Oil can have a positive impact on both Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis you can read more in our Omega 3 guide here.
However, it needs to be understood the Fish Oils do not have an immediate / acute impact on pain and inflammatory levels as medication would. The positive impact occurs over several months (3-6) as the Omega 3 fatty acids in the Fish Oil gradually modulate the immune system and your body’s inflammatory responses.
Very much so! In fact, the majority of the research on fish oils has been around the benefits on Cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure (and reducing raised blood pressure as a side effect of certain medication), increasing vascular elasticity and lowering hypertension in elderly people, reducing the risk of blood clots by decreasing Fibrinogen levels in the bloodstream and decreasing triglycerides – those suffering from a myocardial infarction often have high blood levels of triglycerides.
Again, please remember the importance of avoiding potentially rancid oils from inferior products as they will raise inflammatory levels. The text above is taken from research based on highly stable fish oil.
If you suffer from Haemophilia or taking blood-thinning medication you will need to obtain clearance from GP or your medical specialist before taking a fish oil
I’m a huge believer that money spent on skin products should be redeployed toward nutritional supplements!
Remember, your body has an endless job remodelling the body and will re direct nutrients to critical areas such as the brain and cardiovascular system, it won’t prioritise your skin and hair!
This is why I recommend Fish Oil and a Multivitamin for optimal skin health.
Omega-3 fatty acids help to keep the cell walls of deep-water ocean fish supple and fish oils have been shown to keep cells flexible in humans too, helping to maintain joint suppleness and skin and blood vessel elasticity – elasticity is of paramount importance for skin health to help maintain skin suppleness as it allows nutrients, oxygen and CO2 to pass easily from the bloodstream in to and out of cells.
It’s also worth mentioning that your skin is the biggest detoxification pathway in the body – so what’s inside will be showing in your skin quality!
Yes, and be careful not to take Fish Oil beyond its expiry date. Once opened the Eskimo 3 oils should be used within 2 months.
Fish Oil is a delicate oil and can be easily damaged when exposed to heat or light. Therefore, ensure your fish oil is stored in a dark bottle and kept in the fridge.
There is no ideal time of day. However, take it with food and in terms of remembering to take it having a routine is always the best idea.
EPA and DHA are two types of fatty acids found in the Omega 3. EPA stands for Eicosapentaenoic Acid and DHA stands for Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both these Omega 3’s are highly researched and appear to be 2 of the most beneficial Omega 3’s. They cannot be synthesised by the body so need to be consumed regularly, ideally daily.
Flaxseeds are actually good sources of Omega 3. Flaxseed can be purchased in seed, powder, or oil form and are great for adding to salads or porridge. The big difference is that Omega 3’s from fish oils are more bioavailable (easier for the body to absorb and use) than those from Flaxseed. It appears for the body to be able to utilise Flaxseed Omega 3’s they need to go through several complicated conversion processes which not everyone is capable of doing.
So, Omega 3’s from fish oil appear to be easier for the body to use than Omega 3’s from Flaxseeds.
I personally use both, but of course, Flaxseed Oil is great for Vegans and Vegetarians. The best-absorbed forms are Flaxseed Oil or Flaxseed powder, Flaxseed themselves are very small and can sometimes just pass straight through the body!
