A potent and strong algae oil in just one serving!
OmniVegan® Omega-3 is a potent algae oil product containing a high dose of both DHA and EPA. Therefore just 1 capsule a day provides with 250 mg of DHA and 125 mg of EPA. This meets the daily recommendation by the health authorities in Europe.
Algae are a direct source of Omega-3 unlike other plant sources such as flax and chia seeds - where the conversion is much less efficient. Fish obtain their Omega-3 as they eat algae. Most noteworthy, that not all algae species have a high content of Omega-3. One of the richest algae species of Omega-3 is the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. This is the source used in OmniVegan® Omega-3.
OmniVegan® Omega-3 is an excellent choice for vegans, vegetarian and everyone else who seeking a high quality oil with a good dose of Omega-3 fatty acids. Furthermore, its high dosage of DHA makes it an excellent supplement for women in pregnancy and nursing mothers and those seeking cognitive support eg. the elderly.
Direct source of Omega-3
Vegans and vegetarians have traditionally tried to get enough Omega-3 fatty acids from foods like linseed, walnuts, etc. These sources contain the short-chained forms of Omega-3’s in the form of Alpha-Linolenic-Acid, ALA. ALA is a precursor of the longchained forms of Omega-3 - EPA and DHA, and the conversion of ALA to the long-chained forms is limited and problematic. Algae on the other hand is a good and efficient source of the higher forms of Omega-3’s, hence supplying the healthy, essential fatty acids in a readily form for the body to use and benefit from.
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA
It should be mentioned that not all algae are equally rich in these Omega-3 fatty acids. OmniVegan Omega-3® uses a microalgae called Schizochytrium sp. This microalgae, which originates in the sea, is fermented without the use of chemical substances and under gently conditions in the production facilities. These controlled conditions provide an extremely high quality of the oil and a purity oil. This product also features a Nordic Pure certificate. This means you can find a purity certificate for our Omega fatty acids products. Just type the product L-nr. found on the package label next to the Best before end date, in the search bar section.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding
The high content of DHA in VegOmega-3® makes the product suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women. The mother’s intake of DHA contributes to normal development of the brain and vision of the fetus and in nursing infants. The beneficial effects are achieved by a daily intake of 200 mg DHA along with the recommended daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids for adults, ie. 250 mg of DHA and EPA in total. This means that pregnant and nursing women may benefit from two capsules daily.
