Plantforce® Omega 3 (Vegan EPA & DHA from algae oil) is an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA. These fatty acids are important for the fetus, infants being breastfed, children and adults in regard to the development of the eyes and vision, normal function of the heart and maintenance of the brain and vision.
Unfortunately, there is no dietary source of EPA or DHA for vegans. Since the body cannot synthesise EPA and DHA efficiently, supplementation is the only reliable route.
Thankfully high-quality algae oil exists to fill the nutritional gap in the diet. Smart, specific and effective supplementation. We pride ourselves on integrity and customer trust, producing and providing the highest purity supplements on the market. This algae oil is no different – superior quality, superior results.
Algae – not fish – as the source of EPA and DHA
When people hear about EPA and DHA, most people think of fish oil but fish do not synthesize EPA and DHA. The reason fish contain omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA is because somewhere in the food chain a fish consumed algae that naturally contained these fatty acids. These fatty acids bioaccumulate in the food chain, e.g. when a large fish eats a smaller fish, and ultimately reach humans when a fish is eaten as part of a diet.
How is algae oil produced?
These algae are cultivated indoor large steel-tanks using fermentation technology. Subsequently, the omega-3 rich oil is extracted. This is an environmentally friendly and sustainable method and environmental toxins that bioaccumulate in fish and hence fish oil are completely avoided.
