Optimega's Omega Shots Have a Higher Rate of Absorption for Skin-Saving Nutrients

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Optimega LLC is changing the way people get their Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are essential fatty acids, so they must be taken from an external source, but until now the options for how to ingest them have been fairly limited. Since Omega-3 fatty acids are not created within the human body, a diet rich in fish or flaxseed can provide some of the recommended amount of Omega-3s, but for most people, supplements are the only way to ensure they are getting enough.

American company, Optimega, offers a new way to get the daily recommended dose of Omega-3s with their breakthrough drinkable, great-tasting 2.5 oz "shots." Capsules can take a long time to digest and absorb, but Optimega's Omega Shots are quickly absorbed by the body, ready to produce energy.

Optimega's shots provide two integral types of omega-3 fatty acids: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA plays a major role in keeping the brain energized and working at its highest capacity, while EPA helps to regulate levels of oil in the body and skin, which keeps the skin well-hydrated and can help prevent acne. EPA may also have beneficial effects when it comes to keeping skin from looking wrinkled by staving off the enzymes that diminish collagen, which causes the skin to lose elasticity. These enzymes are mainly released by exposure to UV rays, so getting too much sun is a major cause of skin damage. There is even research to suggest that Omega-3s could help repair damaged skin, if taken correctly.

Another benefit of getting sufficient Omega-3 fatty acids is the vital role they play in maintaining healthy gut bacteria. Having a healthy and well-balanced gut environment helps to regulate not only digestive health but the health of the entire body, including the skin. Many skin issues originate in the gut environment, or microbiome, for a couple of key reasons.

One reason is that when the microbiome is out of whack, it puts unnecessary stress on the liver and kidneys. Overloading these organs can mean that toxins are not being processed correctly within the body, and they are often released more intensely through sweat. When sweat is unusually full of toxins there is a higher chance of infection and breakout on the skin's surface. Second, the microbiome is where many of the body's hormones are created, and when the gut bacteria are not healthy, hormone levels may fluctuate, causing wide-swinging changes in acne throughout the entire body, as seen during puberty. Last but not least, the body needs both a healthy microbiome and Omega-3 fatty acids to properly absorb nutrients from food and supplements. This means that an unhealthy gut environment is not obtaining the same nutrition from otherwise healthy food as a healthy microbiome. So it becomes even harder to absorb the nutrients needed to bring the gut bacteria back to a healthy state.

Skincare that starts inside the body is the latest in health and beauty science, and Optimega provides a quick, easy way to ingest Omega-3 fatty acids with the highest possible bioavailability. So Optimega's drinkable shots are absorbed almost immediately for fast, effective nutrition.
