Omega-3 fatty acids are pretty awesome—they have been shown to promote cardiovascular health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.1,2 High concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids are found in the brain and appear to have a supportive role in memory and cognition.3,4 One serving of Vegan Omega-3 provides 250mg and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
Until now, fish oil from deep sea fish has been the go-to source for Omega-3 fatty acids. But this is neither sustainable nor a happy situation for our fish friends. There’s also the mercury issue. Water pollution exposes fish to toxins, which can get passed to you unless your fish oil supplement goes through a strict decontamination process.5
Fish get their DHA by eating tiny plants floating around in the ocean—marine algae—making fish a sort of Omega-3 middleman. Why not go directly to the plant source? Enter algal oil—an extract of marine algae that can be produced sustainably and is naturally rich in DHA.6 As such, algal oil and salmon are equivalent for raising levels of DHA.7
Nested Naturals Vegan Omega-3 is proudly made with Thetamega³ concentrates, which are produced from DHA oil, derived from a strain of wild-sourced micro-algae, initially discovered and isolated from the pristine coastal waters of the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia, Canada. Thetamega³ concentrates are high-potency, high-quality sustainable vegan algal omega-3 concentrate. Processing is clean, minimal and their final composition is more than 90% pure triglyceride. In addition to DHA Oil, we add Ahiflower Seed Oil which is the richest and most effective combined Omega-3 (SDA and ALA) and Omega-6 (GLA and LA) fatty acid source from a single non-GM plant. You get a boost of pure Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and the fish swim free.
Each capsule includes 200 mg of DHA and 250 mg Ahiflower Seed Oil.
