What is Omega-3?
Omega-3 consists of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which have a beneficial effect on human health. Omega-3 is a great source of fat that we can only get with food or supplements because our body does not produce these fatty acids on its own. Omega-3 is commonly found in fish oil.
Omega-3 plays an important role in ensuring healthy heart, brain and vision [1, 6, 7]. DHA is beneficial for children in the early stages because it supports normal visual development . In addition, DHR is recommended for pregnant women because this substance helps to maintain the normal brain and vision development  of the fetus or breastfed baby . Vitamin E helps protect cells from harmful effects . Raw Powders Omega-3 capsules are extremely easy to use, a high-quality formula designed for those who want better results.
1. EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart. The positive effect is achieved with 250 mg daily.
2. DHA intake contributes to the normal visual development of infants up to 12 months of age. The positive effect is achieved with a daily intake of 100 mg. As DHA is part of the formula, it must be 0.3% in order to have a positive effect.
3. DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus and breastfed infants. The positive effect is achieved with 200 mg DHA, in addition to the recommended daily dose of fish oil for adults, i.e. 250 mg DHA and EPA.
4. DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal development of the eye of the foetus and breastfed infants. The positive effect is achieved with 200 mg DHA, in addition to the recommended daily dose of fish oil for adults, i.e. 250 mg DHA and EPA.
5. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

“Other ingredients” in capsules and tablets.
With the phrase “other ingredients”, we refer to those components that are not a part of the primary substance. However, those are still required for such supplemental forms as capsules and tablets.
Binders, excipients and fillers are necessary for previously mentioned types of supplements - they are bulking agents that keep the whole content together, ensuring better consumption and absorption.
Further, there are two different types of excipients, binders and fillers - synthetic and natural. Raw Powders mission for today is to eliminate as many synthetical ingredients as possible and make the supplement “cleaner”. Thus we are still improving our formulas and searching for the best components. So, for now, we will represent all of the binders and fillers that we use in Raw Powders supplements:
Magnesium Stearate: regulates the stickiness and flowability. For example, if the primary substance is not powdery enough, it will not fill the capsule because of its stickiness. Same with the too powdery substance. Magnesium Stearate is made of magnesium and stearic acid, derived from vegetable oil. All of the Raw Powders supplements contain a very small amount of Magnesium Stearate (3-8 mg). Magnesium Stearate is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Microcrystalline Cellulose: is a filler that we are currently replacing with Rice flour. Our digestion system cannot absorb Microcrystalline Cellulose (it passes unabsorbed). Fillers ensure that the capsule and tablet are filled in the correct proportions - fills cavities that remain empty.
Rice flour: a filler that could be absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. Rice flour is a natural, gluten-free filler.
Hypromellose: is the capsule itself (covers the content inside). Hypromellose is a form of cellulose that can be consumed by vegetarians and vegans. The standard sizes of a capsule are 0.68 ml (250 - 400 mg) or 0.95 ml (350 mg - 700 mg). Therefore, the smallest content of a primary supplement substance should be 250 mg, to fill the whole capsule itself. However, because of dosage instructions and features of the primary substance, it doesn't reach the minimum required capacity. Because of that, such fillers as Microcrystalline Cellulose or Rice flour are needed - to fill the gaps.
Maltodextrin: another filler, used in tablets. The human body digests maltodextrin, it is also gluten-free. However, maltodextrin is high in sugar, so people having issues with high blood sugar levels, should consult with a physician.
Silicon dioxide (Silica or Syloid 244): Silica protects the supplement from moisture and supports the stable shape of a capsule. This compound is found in herbs, plants and high-fibre food sources. Silicon dioxide aids in skin, bones, nails, hair and teeth health maintenance.
Gelatin: is the capsule/soft gel itself (covers the content inside). Gelatin is a natural compound, rich in protein, however, not vegan. Gelatin is important for bones, nails, hair and joints health.
Dicalcium/Tricalcium Phosphate: is a binder used in the manufacture of tablets. Dicalcium Phosphate binds the whole content into a solid tablet-shaped form. The compound is composed of phosphorus and calcium, thus essential for bones, heart, teeth, blood, cells and muscle health.
Glycerin: a sweetener that has moisturizing properties.
According to the FDA and the EFSA, all of the mentioned ingredients can be safely used [1, 2].
The usual dosage is 1 soft-gel. Consume this supplement 1-3 times daily.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This product is intended to be used alongside an active lifestyle and a balanced diet.
