Have you ever wondered ‘where does omega-3 come from?’ Well, we have!
We don’t like the fact that omega-3 in the mass market is sourced directly from fish. This in turn contributes to overfishing which results in the disruption of our delicate marine ecosystems.
Fish does not actually produce omega-3 naturally, algae does and this is eaten by smaller fish and moved up the food chain. This makes algae the original source of omega-3. Fish oil can also contain harmful toxins, including mercury and microplastics, which are very difficult to remove when extracting omega-3 and these can be detrimental to our physical and mental health.
Our omega-3 is pure algae oil and comes directly from the source. We are dedicated to only source omega-3 that is sustainable and does not abuse our marine life in any way. It also means there are no nasty toxins or contaminants found in our omega-3. So, our omega-3 is 100% vegan and vegetarian friendly, sustainable and toxin-free! Amazing, right?
But that’s not all. Each one of our vegan softgels have a high content of the most effective components that make up omega-3 known as EPA and DHA. The majority of the countless health benefits with omega-3 are due to these essential fatty acids. They are deemed essential as they are necessary for good health but cannot be produced by our body so must be ingested through diet. Omega-3 can go a long way towards helping you feel your best.
Omega-3 fatty acids have extensive studies showing their effect on the brain and is known to be promising for cognitive health. DHA is a structural component in cell membranes, particularly in the brain and eyes which can help support memory function and cognitive health. EPA and DHA are necessary for normal brain function and development throughout all stages of life.
Omega-3 has been shown to support healthy vision in high intakes and could benefit eye health in many ways. DHA has been suggested to improve dry eyes and reduce eye pressure, which is a risk factor for glaucoma.
A wealth of research has been carried out to understand the beneficial effects of omega-3 on heart health. It is known to contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and normal functioning of the heart, which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The combination of DHA and EPA has also been shown to reduce blood pressure and reduce the clotting of blood which may help to prevent strokes or heart attacks.
Omega-3s have been shown to reduce inflammation and symptoms of various autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. EPA is an important precursor to eicosanoids which play many physiological roles and reduces inflammation which can help alleviate joint pain and discomfort.
Various studies show that EPA and DHA can help to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression. They may do this by aiding the production of serotonin, which is a nerve messenger that helps to balance your mood.
Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely important during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is beneficial for healthy brain, eye and nervous system development of the infant. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of an early preterm birth. These factors make it important for women to get enough omega-3 during their pregnancy, either through diet or supplements or a combination of the two.
