Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), the world’s largest Omega-3 EPA/DHA solutions provider and supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients announce the launch of Big Shotz multivitamin and mineral juice shot, now with ONC’s Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredients.
Each 120 mL single serving bottle of Big Shotz mango and passionfruit provides 179 mg of Omega-3 as well as 11 vitamins, six minerals, pre-biotic, anti-oxidants, and ginseng. This low fat, nutrient and flavour-packed juice shot is gluten and lactose-free and contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends 250 mg/day of Omega-3 EPA/DHA and just one bottle of Big Shotz provides 72% of this amount, while also meeting many daily recommendations for vitamins and minerals. Nutrient-loaded and conveniently sized Big Shotz with Omega-3 EPA/DHA makes it easy to consume these important nutrients in a single serving. The new Big Shotz product is available in select retailers and national grocery chains across the United Kingdom.

“Unlike other juice manufacturers, at Shotz Health we’ve added just a little juice to a whole lot of vitamins and minerals.” Adam Starr, Managing Director of Shotz Health continued, “When you consume Big Shotz you know you’re getting all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients without the usual juice fillers. And now consumers can get their Omega-3 at the same time.”
Jon Getzinger, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, ONC said, “This is a great product that provides a high loading of Omega-3 EPA/DHA to a juice already full of vitamins and minerals.” Getzinger continued, “Making it easier for consumers to increase their intake of Omega-3 by adding it to a nutrient-packed juice shot is a great marketing opportunity, and one that your body will thank you for.”

Omega-3 is a family of essential fatty acids, including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). Oily fish (such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and salmon) are the major known natural sources of Omega-3 EPA/DHA. ALA is found in plants, such as flax and chia. Although Omega-3 EPA/DHA is important to overall good health, the human body is not able to produce sufficient quantities on its own, so supplementation is required, either by eating oily fish or foods fortified with Omega-3 EPA/DHA, or by taking fish oil supplements.
