Why choose a vegan Omega-3 algae oil?

DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus and breastfed infants. 

Vegan omega-3 from algae is the obvious choice for the environmentally conscious.

There is simply not enough fish in the oceans for everyone to get their omega-3 from fish. Over-fishing is already an issue on a global scale.

Vegan omega-3 from algae is the healthy choice for all.

We want all infants and toddlers to eat omega-3, including those that are allergic to, or choose not to eat fish. Lately it has also become known that farmed fish are often fed antibiotics which isn’t something that we want in our products. Also, fish oil sometimes contains impurities such as mercury, E.coli, staph, salmonella, yeast, and mould.

Wild fish gets the Omega 3 from algae but farmed fish don’t

Just like humans, fish don’t produce omega-3. Wild fish get their omega-3 from the microscopic algae that they eat. However, most of the fish we consume is farmed fish, who’s main food source is processed fish food made with grains and other food sources that aren’t found in the ocean. Omega-3 from algae or oil from other fish is added to the processed food to give the fish omega-3. I.e. in the best case, the fish get their omega-3 from the same source that we have gone to. We have cut out the “middle man” and gone straight to the source, the micro algae.

Seaweed and algae are important sources of omega-3 for people on a vegetarian or vegan diet, as they are one of the few plant groups that contain DHA and EPA.
