    omega-3 for brain health

    During the first 5 years, our little human brains develop more than at any other time in our lives.

    According to experts, this early brain development has a lasting impact on our children's ability to learn and succeed in school and life. That's why nourishing the brain with the right nutrients is so important.

    One of these nutrients is DHA - a specific type of Omega-3 fatty acid that plays a major role in the development of the brain. Studies have shown a link between Omega-3 intake and:

    Improved concentration

    Improved learning & memory

    Improved mood

    Improved sleep

    Optimal immune function

    Reduced symptoms of asthma

    algae oil vs fish oil vs flaxseed oil

    Fish oil and cod liver oil might spring to mind first when you think of omega-3, with flaxseed oil as a common plant-based substitute.

    But how do these sources truly stack up against each other? Let’s unpack the facts and find out why algae oil comes out on top.

    fish oil flaxseed oil algae oil
    Source of Omega-3 DHA & EPA
    Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
    No fishy burps or aftertaste
    Contaminant and toxin free
    Heavy metal free
    Sustainable & environmentally-friendly
    Suitable for pregnant women

    frequently asked questions

    Algae is a far superior choice than fish oil as a source of Omega-3 for children for two main reasons:

    1) Taste & smell

    2) No risk of heavy metals

    Also, anybody who is concerned about the future of our planet should be concerned about the impact of the commercial fishing industry on the oceans.

    With our oceans currently being heavily overfished, combined with the world's growing population, fish is simply not a sustainable way to meeting the world's growing demand for omega-3.

    Algae is the omega-3 source of the future, whether you're veggie, vegan or neither!

    Our Omega-3 is not made using any of most common allergens including fish, wheat, gluten, crustaceans, eggs, nuts, soya, dairy and artificial flavourings and preservatives.

    However our products are made in a facility that may handle these allergens.

    Omvits Omega-3 may be particularly beneficial for:

    - Vegetarians, vegans or anyone with very little oily fish in their diet

    - People concerned about the sustainability issues around fishing

    - Pregnant and breastfeeding women

    - People over the age of 50 who are at higher risk of cardiovascular disease, cognitive and visual decline or joint pain

    - People with seafood allergies

    - People who suffer from dry eyes

    - People wanting to improve their concentration levels and memory

    - Young children

    - People wanting to improve the health of hair, skin and nails

    Schizochytrium is a strain of algae found in coastal marine habitats and is naturally rich in Omega-3 DHA.

    These algae are cultivated in a sterilised environment and then fermented in vats of purified water.

    This not only prevents impacts to the natural ecosystem but also avoids the risk of any pollutants or contaminants from sea water.

    During this process, the algae synthesise the DHA-rich oil which is then extracted using a solvent-free process.

    The extracted oil is then treated and mixed with Vitamins E and C to prevent oxidation, after which it is ready to be mixed with MCT oil and then flavoured.

    Obviously, there's a lot more to the process, but this provides a basic overview.

    There is no official standard for how much Omega-3 we should get each day. However, most health organisations agree that 250–500 mg per day is sufficient to maintain good overall health for adults.

    One such organisation is the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), who recommend the following minimum for children:

    3-24 months:

    - 100 mg DHA per day

    2-18 years:

    - 250 mg DHA or EPA per day

    There is no doubt that fish oil has some health benefits, however, there are also well documented downsides. If you are considering buying a fish oil, here are a few things to bear in mind:

    1) Many fish oils are cheap, but you should be aware of what you are paying for. These cheap fish oils are regularly of poor quality and contain relatively small dosages of DHA/EPA. They often have not been properly processed to remove heavy metals and toxins. You'll also find that they have a very strong "fishy" smell or taste. This is because the oil is starting to go rancid as the polyunsaturated fats start to go bad.

    2) If you saw how fish oil is made, you probably wouldn't want to give it to your children! Fish scraps are mashed, steamed and squeezed to get the oil out before it goes through further processing.

    3) Our seas are more polluted now than they have ever been. Fish often contain harmful levels of contaminants and toxins including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. High levels of these substances in your diet can have serious long-term health consequences.

    4) There are major concerns about the impact of overfishing on world fish stocks. According to the United Nations, world fish stocks are expected to collapse by the year 2048 if current practices continue. Algae on the other hand, is fully sustainable and a great alternative to fish oil for vegans and non-vegans alike.

    5) Fish is a highly inefficient way of getting Omega-3 in comparison to algae. Pound-for-pound, algae contains approximately twenty times the amount of Omega-3 as fish. In other words, for every 20 kilograms of fish taken out of the ocean, you'd only need 1 kilogram of algae to produce the same amount of Omega-3!

    6) Fish oil tastes awful and is not something most children find palatable.

    Our algae is grown in a closed system in purified water and not taken from the sea.

    Not only does this mean that the algae is completely free of ocean-borne contaminants, it also doesn't disrupt the delicate marine eco-system.
