Algae-derived Omega-3s are much more sustainable and environmentally friendly, cultivated in huge indoor fermentation pools. They are free of contaminants, heavy metals and pesticide residues((Liu, Y.; Ren, X.; Fan, C.; Wu, W.; Zhang, W.; Wang, Y. Health Benefits, Food Applications, and Sustainability of Microalgae-Derived N-3 PUFA. Foods 2022, 11, 1883)).
Sustainable & Ethical
1/3 of the world’s oceans are overfished. 2/3 are fished to their maximum sustainable yield. Fish oil has a huge impact on marine ecosystems ((Our World in Data)). Algae Omega-3s are a sustainable, eco-friendly choice, with no impact on marine life.
