Ovega-3™ is a vegetarian omega-3 supplement containing high levels of both DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, to support heart health*. From a sustainable source, Ovega-3 offers the same heart healthy benefits of fish oil but without the "fishy" aftertaste or "fish burps" associated with many fish oils.
How do we do this? Simple. We don't use fish.
Most people think fish are the original source of DHA and EPA omega-3s, but it's really the algae in their food chain that contain these important omega-3 fatty acids. Ovega-3 has cut out the middleman – fish – and gone directly to the source, using algae grown outside of the ocean in an FDA-inspected facility.
Thanks to Mother Nature, various species of algae have some amazingly useful properties. Certain algae are naturally high producers of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain, eye and heart health*. Algae also provide a sustainable source of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid that supports heart health*.
Are all strains of algae created equal? No. The scientists behind Ovega-3 are world leaders in discovering the properties of algae and developing their nutritional applications.
For instance, life'sDHA™, the brand of DHA used in Ovega-3, was discovered over two decades ago as scientists were studying the beneficial use of algae in long-term space flight. These scientists identified a strain of algae that naturally produces high amounts of DHA and most recently have identified another strain of algae that produces high amounts of both DHA and EPA omega-3s. This is what powers Ovega-3.
Do all algae come from the ocean and other bodies of water? Technically yes, but we've learned how to grow our patented DHA & EPA omega-3 producing algae in stainless steel fermentors within an FDA-inspected facility. The result is a completely sustainable and vegetarian source of DHA & EPA.
