Benefits of Omega-3

Make the switch from fish and get your omega-3 straight from the source

Directly from the source

Despite common perceptions, fish don’t naturally produce omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Although Omega-3 fatty acids are present in fish, fish oils and krill oils, they are originally synthesised by micro-algae. Fish can obtain these omega-3 fatty acids through direct consumption of the micro-algae or by devouring other species such as phytoplankton that have already consumed microalgae. This is what accumulates the omega-3s in their tissues. Instead of consuming fish or eating items produced from fish, getting omega-3 directly from marine algae or from plant-based sources may be a more direct and sustainable method.

Protect our oceans

To protect our oceans from overfishing and avoid exposure to environmental contaminants and pollution, marine algae is grown separately from our valuable marine ecosystem. One of the biggest fishing nations in the world, Peru, passed new legislation in 2023 that tightened the rules against illicit fishing and established a five-mile exclusion zone for industrial fleets in order to preserve ocean biodiversity and abundance for years to come.

For everyone to enjoy

Choosing a plant-based omega-3 is a vegan and vegetarian-friendly supplement It is naturally rich and concentrated to support general wellbeing without the need to consume fish or fish oil. The plant omega-3 industry is set to soar over the coming years, as more and more consumers become increasingly concerned over the safeguarding of marine ecosystems and biodiversity.
