Green Nutritionals Vegan Omega
GreenOMEGA 3 is ideal for vegans and vegetarians who want an Omega 3 supplement with all of the benefits of fish oil, but without the fish and the related sustainability issue of using a fish source.
While most people know fish are a rich source of Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), many don’t know that the fish actually get these essential fatty acids from the marine microalgae they eat in their natural environment.
So GreenOMEGA 3 has by-passed the fish and go straight to the source to get these essential Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA from the very same organic marine microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.) the fish get them from.
The benefits of a diet rich in Omega 3 (DHA and EPA) are well known to include heart, brain and eye health
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to human health and are thus deemed 'essential fatty acids' since they cannot be produced by the body and have to come from our diet.
The two most important components of Omega 3 are DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid), which are found most prominently in oily fish – but the amounts delivered by the usual Western consumption of oily fish are not sufficient – hence the need for supplementation.
The current Western diet is rich in omega 6 from seed and vegetable oils, but the inflammatory action of Omega 6 has prompted the need for increasing the balancing intake of Omega 3.
