GreenOMEGA 3Â is ideal for vegans and vegetarians who want an Omega 3 supplement with all of the benefits of fish oil, butÂ without the fishÂ 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 donât know that the fish actual get these essential fatty acids from the marine microalgae they eat in their natural environment.
SoÂ GreenOMEGA 3Â has by-passed the fish and gone 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.
Â GreenOMEGA 3Â from renewable algal source is a vegan alternative to fish oil for essential DHA and EPA. Algal derived oils are 100% clean, free from heavy metal like mercury and arsenic and do not contribute to the destruction of our ravaged oceans.

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 â but the amounts delivered by the usual Western consumption of oily fish are not sufficient â 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.
There is a huge body of evidence to demonstrate the positive health benefits that can be gained from a diet rich in Omega 3s. With more than 25,000 published papers to date, there is continued investment to support research into health benefits.
To date, Omega 3 supplementation has been mostly supplied by fish oil, but with questions over sustainability together with the increasing change to a vegan or vegetarian diet, there has been a shift in demand to Omega 3 derived from sustainably cultivated marine micolagae. So by usingÂ Pure Plant-SourceÂ GreenOMEGA 3Â you are quite literally cutting out the 'middle-fish'!
So there it is âÂ Pure Plant-SourceÂ GreenOMEGA 3Â has all the benefits of fish oil, without the highly processed fish or the associated environmental and sustainability issues!
Located in Kingstree, South Carolina USA, the green marine microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.) is sustainably cultivated in technologically-advancedÂ "Enclosed-System"Â phyto-bioreactors.
This method of environmentally-controlled cultivation produces a very pure, pollution-free microalgae that is never exposed to unclean air or water.
The water used in the marine microalgae phyto-bioreactors is purified using Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems, so there are no chemicals, heavy metals or other environmental pollutants in the water.
Algal Nursery Test Tube
The marine microalgae starts its life-cycle in an algal test tube in the laboratory, then gets transferred into the phyto-bioreactor to grow and fully develop the rich nutrient profile of Omega 3's.
Harvesting of the marine microalgae 'crop' occurs only when it has reached its peak potency.
Then the rich Omega 3 essential fatty acids are extracted from the marine microalgae using a proprietary method that utilises a chemical-free process, and is then filtered by way ofÂ 'Chill-Filtration' to the produce a potent, pure DHA and EPA rich oil.
DHA and EPA rich oil
Of course, it does not end there - a genuine vegan product likeÂ Pure Plant-SourceÂ GreenOMEGA 3Â can only be delivered in a 100% animal-free vegetable capsule that can effectively deliver the rich DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
There are no artificial ingredients inÂ Pure Plant-SourceÂ GreenOMEGA 3, only pure Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis) is used in our vegan capsules as an effective antioxidant to protect the integrity of the valuable Omega 3 fatty acids.
