Not a Fan of Fishy Omega-3? Go for Plant-based DHA!

Not a fan of fishy omega-3s or worried about fish oil? Here’s our Plan B. Lots of Algae DHA! Here’s why you need to have them!

1.DHA omega-3 is to our brains like calcium is to our bones. It accounts for 97 percent of the omega-3 fats in the brain.
2.Algae DHA is the safest omega-3 source. Because algae DHA does not come from fish or other marine foods, there is no risk of ocean-borne contaminants.
3.Algae-based DHA comes from microscopic algae floating around in the oceans. These tiny plants are known to convert sunlight into omega-3 fats.
4.Algae DHA has been proven to be an excellent direct source of DHA that provides brain, eye and heart health benefits.
5.Because our bodies cannot make DHA, we need to eat food rich with this important nutrient to keep our brains functioning at an optimal level.
6.Algae-derived DHA is approved for use in infant formulas and many applications such as fruit juices, soymilks, milks, breads, cooking oils, yogurts, sauces, eggs, as well as nutrition bars.
7.Algae-derived DHA is a sustainable, alternative source of DHA which can satisfy both the demands of consumers and the needs of vegetarians.
8.Algae-derived DHA boosts levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and cut levels of triglycerides.
