Biopet Omega 3
Biodistra Omega-3™ – paws, coat and skin
Biodistra Omega-3 is a 100 % pure natural fish oil with high content of the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA that keeps coat, skin and paws in good condition.
Dull coat without lustre, eczema, dandruff and dry, ulcered paws are common problems for cats and dogs. Biodistra Omega-3 is an easy, effective and documented way to ease these problems and benefit the health of the pet.
Biodistra Omega-3 is of very high quality (Controlled foodstuffs quality). It is produced from wild fish and has a very high content of essential fatty acids. It is long lasting, effective and praiseworthy.
Why Biodistra Omega-3?
Omega-3 fatty acids are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids found in various plants and marine life. Those found in marine life consist mainly of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and are highly biologically active. In contrast, those from plants – flaxseed, walnuts and canola oil) are usually in the form of alpha linolenic acid and while the body can convert this into EPA and DHA, it occurs inefficiently to a level of only 10-15 percent.
Fish are a rich source of the Omega-3 fatty acids. They acquire these fatty acids partly from the food chain and partly through endogenous synthesis from ingested alinolenic acid (C183n3). However there is a big difference between wild and cultured fish.
Studies prove that the Omega-3 fatty acid ratio is two-to-three-times higher in wild than in cultured fish. Further reports show that wild land animals contain more essential fatty acids than do domestic animals. Evidently hunted fish are also a better source of n-3 fatty acids than are their cultured counterparts.

There is evidence for health benefits of dietary n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). In humans, the intake of n-3 fatty acids reduces plasma very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations (Sanders et al., 1985; Nestel and Couzens, 1966) and may also decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease (Nestel, 1991; Willett et al., 1993; Ascherio et al., 1994; Oomen et al., 2001) and prostate cancer (Norrish et al., 1999; De Stefani et al., 2000).
In controlled studies with experimental animals, dietary fish oil has been shown to lower blood pressure (Morris, 1994; Chen et al., 1996) and to depress mammary tumour growth (Braden and Carroll, 1986; Gabor and Abraham, 1986). In allergic dogs, studies have shown that higher dosages of omega-3 alone or in combination with omega-6 significantly decrease pruritus and self-trauma and improve coat characteristics. A placebo-controlled, double-blind, cross-over study has demonstrated a clear benefit of high dose (n-3) fatty acids in the management of pruritic skin disease. There is also experimental evidence that specific dietary (n-6):(n-3) fatty ratios are useful in the dietary management of inflammatory diseases.
Further clinical studies provide additional evidence that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation alone or in combination with GLA have clinical benefits in the management of canine allergic dermatitis. Dietary factors have a major role in the maintenance of healthy coat and skin in cats and dogs, and are significant in the etiology and therapy of certain skin diseases. Dogs and cats are unable to synthesize linoleic acid; thus, a dietary source is essential in both species. Essential fatty acids have a structural role in cell membranes, act as precursors for eicosanoids such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes, and are vital for maintaining normal skin structure and function.
