Otso comes from Finland and grew up with the mindset that nature provides us with all the ingredients we need to promote our well-being. With this strong belief, he built AAVALABS together with his parents and started to develop pure and fresh supplements.

Did your parents or grandparents also take cod liver oil? They sure did! Fishy, oily, greasy - simply disgusting! Whole generations grew up with this penetrating taste of cod liver oil until it finally disappeared from the shelves. Cod liver oil is a great source of omega 3 but nowadays, taking supplements with omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA is clearly the more pleasant way to go.
Omega-3 fatty acids are found mainly in marine fish and algae and are a vital part of the human diet. They regulate important bodily functions such as blood pressure, heart rate or the immune system and are found as a component of nerve cells, especially in the brain and retina. The two most important omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both obtained mainly from fish oils and marine algae. To be able to integrate these fatty acids into supplements, they must first be extracted using complex processes.
Do you read the labels of your supplements in detail?
When buying supplements, many people just quickly skim the list of ingredients without really understanding what's actually behind them.
We admit: The list of ingredients in dietary supplements can be very hard to understand. What many consumers don't know is that supplements from some brands contain many unnecessary ingredients in addition to vitamins and minerals.
Avoid supplements with a long list of "inactive ingredients" on the label. Because some of these additives can be harmful to your health.
We explain what exactly additives are and why they are sometimes found in supplements. Learn which additives you should avoid no matter what, so you know what ingredients to look out for the next time you buy.

Did you know that you have about 100 trillion bacteria in your body?
That might sound a bit scary at first, because we associate the word bacteria with something negative. But bacteria are actually essential for our survival and take over important tasks in our body. Most bacteria are found in our intestines, more specifically in the colon. Intestinal flora or intestinal microbiota is the term used to describe the totality of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, etc.) that colonize the intestine.
We distinguish between good and bad bacteria: The good bacteria are enormously important for health. However, certain types of bacteria in your gut can also contribute to many diseases.
Studies have found that if you have too many of the negative bacteria in your body, you are more likely to suffer from certain intestinal diseases, such as Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
What's interesting is that the food you eat has a big impact on your gut flora.
Do you eat fish at least 2 times a week?

What many people do not know is that the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 is significant. These two are among the essential fats that we must consume in our diet, since our bodies cannot produce them on their own.

Nevertheless, many people make the mistake of focusing only on carbohydrates, fats and proteins in their eating habits. Minerals are often forgotten. Since minerals are not a source of energy, introducing them in our diet is often forgotten.
Yet their presence in the human body is essential!
