37.2 trillion. That’s the estimated number of cells in your body. Present in every cell are life’s essential nutrients – omega-3 fatty acids – called ‘essential’ because they cannot be made by your body and must be obtained through your diet.
Consider Suntory DHA & EPA + Sesamin EX, imported from Japan where it has ranked No. 1 in DHA category sales for 15 consecutive years.
It is a holistic formulation of 2 important omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, sesamin from sesame seeds and vitamin E. Support your everyday diet with life’s essential nutrients.

and Our Diet
DHA and EPA can be found in fish oil extracted from fatty fish like tuna, sardines, salmon, anchovies and mackerel. Worldwide, people are consuming more meat than fish over time1.
Such evolution in diet can cause a deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids intake. Even among societies like Japan where fish is commonly part of meals, Japanese aged 30 to 49 were found to consume less than 400mg of DHA and EPA per day.2 Recommended daily intake of EPA and DHA is 500 mg per day for healthy people, and up to 1,000 mg for people with heart conditions.3
Though you might now be inspired to incorporate more fatty fish in meals, doing so does not guarantee adequate intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Oxidation and loss of DHA and EPA happens during cooking – as much as 85%4 depending on your cooking method and fish used.
Whether your diet is meat-heavy or already incorporating fatty fish, choose Suntory DHA & EPA + Sesamin EX, which contains 300 mg of DHA and 100 mg of EPA per serving to help you reach the recommended daily intake.
DHA and EPA
Go Beyond the Heart
Everyone knows the heart health benefits of DHA and EPA. Omega-3 fatty acids can decrease triglyceride levels, reduce the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque which can block blood vessels, and support healthy blood circulation.5
Did you know that DHA is also critically linked to brain health?
DHA makes up over 90% of the omega-3 fatty acids in your brain. It is no wonder that presence of adequate DHA helps your brain’s nerve cells to communicate more easily, quickly and efficiently. Research suggests that DHA is especially beneficial for older adults who experience age-related cognitive decline in memory and learning.6
Are you over the age of 50? Choose Suntory DHA & EPA + Sesamin EX to support brain health, and ensure adequate intake of your brain’s most important omega-3 fatty acid.
- Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, "National Health and Nutrition Survey Report" (2011, 2012)
The effectiveness of your omega-3 supplement can be amplified by the presence of a strong antioxidant.
DHA and EPA are easily oxidised, hence Suntory fortified the supplement with a unique combination of sesamin from sesame seeds, and vitamin E. These antioxidants protect DHA and EPA from oxidising easily and becoming harmful to your health. With sesamin present, the amount of DHA and EPA loss due to oxidation is reduced.
Sesamin makes up less than 1% of a sesame seed and is extracted using a proprietary technology developed over 30 years. Sesamin’s excellence comes from being easily absorbed by your small intestines to reach your liver, where its antioxidant effects are activated. Apart from supporting liver function, when supplemented with vitamin E, a person can even feel improvements in sleep quality and energy level.
As a result of stellar research, Suntory received an Achievement in Technological Research award from the Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology and Agrochemistry (JSBBA). The award recognises sesamin’s practical application as a health food.
