About this episode

All about OMEGA 3!
Welcome back to the Ethical Entrepreneurs Podcast, this week on the show, we have Melanie Lawson, founder of Bare Biology. Bare Biology supply high quality Omega 3 fish oils and supplements and Melanie is a huge advocate for transparency when it comes to talking about mental health. Welcome to the show Melanie…

What we cover in this episode:
• The direct link between Omega 3 and mental health.
• Omega 3 and posta-natal depression
• During pregnancy the mothers DHA goes direct to the baby, this now has been proven to have a direct link to postnatal depression.
• Finding a sustainable supplier is key – research and go and visit suppliers
• Omega 6 and Omega 3 are out of balance in the Western world. Our diets are filled with Omega 6 via veg oil production and processed foods. Omega 3’s come from oily fish and this doesn’t play such a bold part in our diet these days!

“Fresh fish is just not so abundant in our diets these days and so omega 3’s have to come from other routes”


“ The smaller the wild fish then the lower the contamination levels”

“It’s ok to put your eggs in one basket as long as you look after those eggs really well!”

“Consumers are changing their priorities, choice is becoming much more important for individuals, and for the environment”
