Balanced to Match Your Body's Omega-3 Needs
Omedha™ provides World Health Organization recommendations for daily omega-3 intake by pregnant and nursing mums in one mini-softgel, with 350 mg DHA per capsule.
Microalgae oil provides 300% more DHA per unit than fish oil. This makes microalgae oil the finest source of these essential nutrients available because the oil has the optimal level of DHA. Your body puts DHA directly to work without the multi-step conversion process in the body seen with of other Omega-3 forms.
DHA is 80 to 90 percent of all the omega-3 in the body and 97 percent of the omega-3 in the brain. Most fish oil products contain more EPA than DHA. This is exactly the opposite of the optimum balance found in microalgae oil supplements.
One of the reasons fish have Omega 3s in their systems is because they eat microalgae. By taking microalgae supplements, you get your DHA directly from the source, without it having been converted and diluted from passing through a fish.
No Fishy Taste, Free From Contaminants
The main negative feelings some people have about fish oil is its fishy taste, the odour that lingers in our system, and that odorous burping problem that seems a constant companion to fish oil use. Now this is solved, as Omega-3 microalgae oil has none of these effects.
Cultured microalgae are free from contaminants found in free roaming fish, e.g. heavy metals like lead and mercury. The algae are grown in a closed environment not exposed to outside elements. Contaminant concern in fish oil products is real and fish oil supplements have come under scrutiny in recent years.
In early 2006, government agencies such as the Food Standards Agency in the UK and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland reported PCB levels that exceeded the strict new European maximum limits in several fish oil brands, which required temporary withdrawal of these brands.
Non-GMO and Sustainable
Algae oil is a technology innovation that can help replace the current dependence on fish oils for omega-3s. Being cultured, it does not deplete the supply of fish nor upset marine ecosystems.
The newest contaminant testing practices on the market are called PCR tests used to detect DNA contamination from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Algae oils are non-GMO.
GMOs are a controversial subject in foods. While not considered dangerous, GMOs are considered cultural and ethical taints. Many countries have banned GMOs that are made using recombinant DNA technology.
