Choose GreenOMEGA 3 as your daily source of DHA and EPA … and save the fish!
What is it
GreenOMEGA 3 is a rich vegan source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) derived from the clean, green marine micro algae (Schizochytrium sp.).
DHA and EPA are fatty acids that are components of cell membranes and have powerful anti-inflammatory functions within the brain and body. They are also well known for their critical roles in human development and heart health.
EPA and DHA seem to have important roles in the developing baby’s brain. In fact, several studies have correlated pregnant women’s fish intake or fish oil use with higher scores for their children on tests of intelligence and brain function in early childhood.
These fatty acids are also vital for the maintenance of normal brain function throughout life. They are abundant in the cell membranes of brain cells, preserving cell membrane health and facilitating communication between brain cells.
When animals are fed diets without omega-3 fatty acids, the amount of DHA in their brains decreases, and they tend to experience deficits in learning and memory.
In older adults, lower levels of DHA in the blood have been associated with smaller brain size, a sign of accelerated brain aging.
For the body, together DHA and EPA may help reduce inflammation and your risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease. On its own, DHA supports brain function and eye health, may help prevent or slow Alzheimer’s Disease, fights inflammation, may reduce your risk of certain cancers, lowers blood pressure and supports circulation, reduces heart disease risk, may improve ADHD, reduces the risk of early preterm births, helps some eye conditions, supports muscle recovery after exercise, supports men’s reproductive health and may help protect mental health.
In the human diet, EPA and DHA are almost exclusively found in fatty fish, fish oil and now marine micro algae, which is where the fish get their source from. Because most people do not consume the recommended amounts of fish, or are concerned about the high levels of heavy metals and pollutants found in fish today, or those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, or those concerned about taking further from our depleted oceans, many people likely fall short of getting enough EPA and DHA in their diets.
The body can make EPA and DHA out of another omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is found in a number of food sources, such as walnuts and other nuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, avocado, olive oil, rice bran oil etc.
However, humans can’t convert ALA to EPA and DHA very efficiently, with estimates reporting that less than 10% of the amount of ALA you consume is converted to EPA or DHA.
That’s why marine micro algae veggie caps are a quick and easy way to get your recommended serve of DHA and EPA daily.
Each vegan capsule contains 850mg of Life’sOMEGA3™ marine micro algae oil delivering 255mg DHA and 127mg EPA.
GreenOMEGA 3 satisfies those who want all the DHA and EPA essential fatty acid benefits for brain and body health, but from a vegetarian source.
In fact, fish obtain their DHA and EPA from consuming marine micro algae, so by going straight to the source consumers can get these healthy fatty acids from the same natural food-source that fish do without harming an animal and taking from the scarce and fragile fish stocks in the ocean today.
Marine micro algae (Schizochytrium sp.) oil has recently emerged as an efficient and environmentally friendly source of DHA and EPA and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) at doses up to 2 g/day as a dietary supplement. Micro algae oil contains a larger proportion of DHA than EPA (which is what you want) and GreenOMEGA 3 with 100% Life’sOMEGA3™ is one of the first high potency, vegan and non-GMO omega-3 fatty acid products on the Australian market.
