Marine Algae Vegan Omega 3 450 mg - 30 Softgels
Our Vitality Approved Solution
From the Manufacturer:
Marine Algae-3 contains the same EPA and DHA fatty acids found in fish oil that are vital nutrients for healthy heart and brain function. This sustainably harvested, non-GMO fish-free oil is easily utilized by the body and has no fishy smell or aftertaste, making it an excellent vegetarian and vegan alternative to fish oil.
Microalgae are a key source of omega-3 EFAs. Other plant sources, such as flax, chia and hemp seeds, have alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a shorter chain omega-3, which the body can only partially convert into EPA and DHA. Marine Algae-3 has highly concentrated preformed EPA and DHA, bypassing the need for conversion.
Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA, support cognitive health and brain function, as well as cardiovascular health. DHA is especially important to brain function, and comprises 30–40% of the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in the cerebral cortex. It is highly concentrated in the cell membranes of the retina and brain, especially the synapses. It facilitates the healthy structure and function of cells. DHA also affects neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine normal regulation.
Omega-3 fatty acids are vital to healthy cell membranes. EPA and DHA are also transformed into prostaglandins, compounds that help support healthy heart, digestive, and kidney function; healthy inflammatory responses and hormone production; and blood pressure levels already within the normal range.
Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors and other whole food sources. They process nutrient-dense plants raw to create vital bioenergetic blend vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
