The demand for quality softgels that remain heat stable and highly portable is steadily increasing. As your clients realize that they can’t stay healthy and fit on food alone, more and more people are turning to supplements. And one of the most popular supplements that is always at top-of-mind are the omega-3 supplements.
Most people assume that the only source for omega-3 is fish oil, but this is not the case. While fish oil is widely recognized as a good source, your vegetarian and vegan clients can meet their omega-3 needs with soft gels that make use of sources including borage, flax seed, pumpkin seed, and evening primrose oil. As well, to provide the complete DHA/EPA omega-3 supplement spectrum, your clients can use algae oil which we encapsulate in our vegetarian softgels.
Omega-3 supplements are recognized world-wide for a long list of health benefits. Nutritionists and other industry experts recommend that these supplements be taken to aid in reducing the impacts of aging, to help boost brain power, and to help preserve lean muscle mass. So it’s no wonder that there is an increased demand for an omega-3 supplement that is easily digestible, portable, and affordable.
This is where our leading softgel encapsulation technology comes in. With 12 production lines, three shifts per day, five days per week – the Captek team produces on average 200 million softgels per month. We are proud of our quality assurance and certifications that ensure you are giving your clients the best in omega-3 softgels.
Designed to disintegrate within 15 minutes after swallowing, your clients can be confident that they are actually reaping the rewards of the supplement. Many soft gels on the market, unfortunately, do not have similar disintegration rates – making it challenging to gain the benefit from the supplement.
If your clients have questions about the benefits of omega-3 supplements, here are some facts you can pass on:
- Our bodies cannot produce omega-3 fatty acids so the only way to get this valuable fatty acid is through supplementation.
- Omega-3 is responsible for many functions including blood clotting and building the cell membranes in our brains.
- Recent studies show that there are benefits for people who suffer from cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and a range of other autoimmune diseases including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
- The recommendation is to ensure you’re getting 500 mg of omega-3 a day – this can be done through supplements or through your food.
