Direct Omega-3 source
Algae are a good and direct source of Omega-3. The reason that fish and shell fish contain Omega-3 fatty acids is due to them living off
algae in the sea, or of smaller fish that have eaten them. The algae is rich on the essential Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
However, it should be mentioned that not all algae are as rich in these Omega-3 fatty acids.
In VegOmega-3®, the micro algae called Schizochytrium sp. has been used. This micro algae originates in the sea, is fermented without the use of chemical substances, under gentle conditions in the production facility on land. These controlled conditions give an algae oil of very high quality and purity.
