Did you know that Omega 3 is naturally produced by algae, not fish? This Omega 3 dense algae is eaten by krill, which are then eaten by fish. Fish themselves do not produce Omega 3, they simply consume it.
Recently however, fish and fish oil have been found to contain harmful amounts of toxic chemicals. Heavy metals such as mercury have been found in alarmingly high levels. Omega 3 derived from algae oil 'cuts out the middleman' and goes straight to the original and purest source of Omega 3; the algae itself.
It may sound a little boring, but algae is a highly nutritious and sustainable plant. Having been around for billions of years, it's highly efficient at converting the sun's energy into a viable form of pure Omega 3.
Ancient civilisations such as the Mayans and Aztecs realised the potential of algae and would harvest it in large amounts in order to benefit from the hugely nutritious properties.
Each algae Omega 3 softgel contains a minimum of 200mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is vital for our brain, eye and heart health.
