More about micro-algae
Micro-algae is the world’s richest and only primary source of omega-3 DHA. With overfishing causing a harmful decline of the world’s fish populations, micro-algae provides a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to fish oil that is vegan friendly and free of any ocean born contaminates. Omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for health and cannot be produced by the human body so need to be a part of our diet.
What the studies say
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are widely known, particularly the long chain fatty acid components, EPA and DHA. However, most studies or research into omega-3 supplementation relate to fish sourced omegas and the use of micro- algae oil as a source of omega-3’s is relatively new. However, a 2008 study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, showed micro-algae oil to be an equally effective source of DHA when compared to cooked salmon.Further reading and references
