Ovega-3 DHA & EPA
Ovega-3 is a vegetarian omega-3 supplement containing high levels of both DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, to support heart health. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid. DHA accounts for about 97 percent of the omega-3 fats in the brain and 93 percent of the omega-3 fats in the retina. It is also a key component of the heart. DHA is important for healthy brain and eye development and function and has been shown to support heart health from infancy through adulthood. DHA serves as a primary building block for the brain and the eyes. Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA ensures that the cells in the brain, retina, heart and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly.
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is also a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid. EPA plays a role in heart health and has been shown to help reduce chronic inflammation by modifying the immune response. EPA is also recommended by the American Heart Association and the USDA Dietary Guidelines for its cardiovascular benefits. EPA may also play a role in certain mental disorders.
Most people think fish are the original source of DHA and EPA omega-3s, but it's really the algae in their food chain that contain these important omega-3 fatty acids. Ovega-3 has cut out the middleman--fish--and gone directly to the source, using algae grown outside of the ocean in stainless steel fermentors within an FDA-inspected facility. You can be sure that Ovega-3 is 100% free of PCBs and mercury because it is sourced from plants that are grown outside of the ocean. The result is a completely sustainable and vegetarian source of DHA & EPA.
