Our DHA algae oil vegetarian capsules provide the same great health benefits as fish oil, but without the use of fish!
Algae oil is a purely vegan source of Omega-3 and is exceptionally rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
DHA is a component of omega 3 fatty acids, along with EPA and ALA, which are considered an essential part of healthy body and brain development in children and adults. Of these three omega fatty acids, DHA is the most abundant in the brain and retina, representing more than 90 percent of all omega-3 acids in both organs. Additionally, DHA is the only omega-3 fatty acid that has been shown to support brain, eye and heart health throughout every stage of life.
Since the DHA content in most fish originates from algae they consume, the DHA present in our algae oil capsules is almost identical to that found in standard fish supplements. DHA algae oil capsules are therefore an ideal vegetarian alternative to fish oil or cod liver oil.
Our vegan capsules are manufactured using a patented technology, where the outer soft shell is made of carrageenan algae. Each soft shell vegetarian capsule provides 200mg of DHA, so with just two capsules a day the benefits of supplementation with Algae Oil should be easily noticeable.
