The Omega-3s are also called Essential Fatty Acids (EFA). The most important ones are EPA and DHA which could be plant and animal originated. The essential fatty acids are necessary for the normal functioning of our body but they cannot be synthesized by our body. Therefore, an appropriate daily intake through nutrition would be required.
EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to the health of following systems in our body:
Heart and cardiovascular health: EPA and DHA contribute to the normal heart functions (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA).
Blood pressure: EPA and DHA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of EPA and DHA).
Normal triglyceride levels in blood: EPA and DHA contribute to the maintenance of normal triglyceride levels in blood (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2 g of EPA and DHA).
Eye health and cognitive functions: DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function and normal vision. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA).
The concentration of Omega-3 has a great importance in fish oil supplements. A higher concentration of Omega-3 in a supplement guarantees higher amounts of Omega-3s, specifically EPA and DHA in a supplement. One of the quality markers in EFA One is that the fish oil content has high concentrations of omega-3; EPA and DHA.
The EFA One contains 85% of Omega-3 fatty acids, in triglyceride form. Thanks to its triglyceride form, the absorption of Omega-3 fatty acids in EFA One is more effective than the ethyl ester form.
EFA One obtains the esteemed IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) 5-star certification on each batch released on market. This guarantees the effective concentration of EPA and DHA, the purity of the product (absence of heavy metals and pollutants) and the freshness (that fish oil is not rancid) of each batch of EFA One released on market.
Additionally, in EFA One, the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are obtained from the pressing of small fish such as anchovies and sardines with the KD-Pür® technology. The KD-pür® Technology is a combination of Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) and Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC). This unique combination process delivers a superior quality of Omega-3 concentrates. Unlike some other extraction methods, with KD-pür® technology, no chemical solvents, water, sugar, saturated fatty acids, cholesterol or proteins can be found in the finished oil. By this method, the fish obtained would be extremely pure.
Fish gelatine softgels are suitable for the digestive system, it does not cause a bad smell or taste.
The concentration and the purity of the omega-3 fatty acids contained in a fish oil supplement are key indications of quality.
EFA One is produced with today’s advanced technologies and it has a higher quality standard by having the 5-star IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) certificate for the content of omega-3 fatty acids. IFOS is an independent program that analyses products containing omega-3s in areas of high purity and compliance with specified omega-3 ingredients, according to test criteria determined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN).

The accuracy of the omega-3 concentration in EFA One, its purity, its reliable content, its stability, its expiration date and the absence of heavy metals in the content are demonstrated by the IFOS approval received on each batch released on market.
The appropriate concentration and purity of the omega-3 fatty acids in EFA One are achieved through the KD-Pür® technology. The KD-Pür® technology is a set of purification processes that allow to obtain a superior quality and selection of Omega-3 concentrates. This ensures an exceptionally high level of purity of the Omega-3 concentrates. For more information, please visit: KD Pharma Group®.
Since 2006, The GOED (Global Organization of EPA and DHA) has started various researches in the field of omega-3s, seeking to increase the quality of omega-3 products and globally aims to spread knowledge of the effects of omega-3s. Sifar Ilaclari is one of the first founding members of GOED. Sifar Ilaclari is represented by both New Life and Sifar Nutra brands in GOED. For more information, please visit: GOED OMEGA 3.
