Omega-3 is an essential nutrient for our bodies. Unfortunately, the body does not produce it on its own, so we need to supply omega-3 through diet. It can be challenging to get enough if you exclude and/or reduce animal produce in your diet. Möller’s omega-3 from algae contains the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA. DHA and EPA contribute to normal heart function*, while DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function and normal vision**. Maternal intake of DHA contributes to normal brain and eye development of the foetus and in breastfed infants***. Our product also contains 100% plant-based vitamin D3 with high biological activity: good for the bones, teeth, muscles and immune system.
Daily recommended dose is 1 capsule per day.
What is Omega-3 from algae?
Vegetable vitamin D3 has traditionally been extracted from lichen. However, there is now an even more sustainable way of obtaining vegan vitamin D3 – from algae. Algae oil is sourced via an algal fermentation process using Schizochytrium sp, which is a microalgae. The oil is mechanically extracted from the microalgae and then refined. Algae oil is categorised as a “novel food”, meaning it does not have a history of consumption or is produced by a method not previously used for food.
