About Pure Food Marine Algae-3™
The eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in fish oil actually originate in the algae that fish consume. Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Marine Algae-3 provides all the benefits of these omega-3 fatty acids in a sustainably harvested, non-GMO formula derived from algae. Extracted from specially selected microalgae that naturally produce pure EPA and DHA, this fish-free oil has no fishy smell or aftertaste. It is an excellent vegetarian and vegan alternative to fish oil.
EPA and DHA promote cardiovascular and cognitive health, as well as brain function. They also help regulate the inflammatory response. DHA in particular is vital for the development of healthy eye, brain, and immune function in infants.
While the body can convert some shorter chain omega-3 essential fatty acids to EPA and DHA, only a small amount is converted, so obtaining these fatty acids through supplementation is often recommended. Marine Algae-3 contains 400 mg of omega-3s per softgel, including 120 mg of EPA and 240 mg of DHA. Omega-3s from algae are more easily utilized by the body than other plant sourced omega-3s, and cause no unpleasant “fish burps”. Marine Algae-3 is guaranteed to be free from ocean-born contaminants, including heavy metals, pesticides, and other environmental pollutants.
