    Ovega-3 Omega-3 DHA + EPA 500 mg - 60 Vegetarian Softgels

    Ovega-3 Omega-3 DHA + EPA is a vegetarian omega-3 supplement containing high levels of both DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, to support heart health. From a sustainable source, Ovega-3 Omega-3 DHA + EPA offers the same heart healthy benefits of fish oil but without the "fishy" aftertaste or "fish burps" associated with many fish oils. How do they do this? Simple. They don't use fish.

    Unlike fish oil, Ovega-3 is:

    • 100% free of ocean-borne pollutants and toxins potentially found in certain fish
    • Free of allergens associated with fish oil
    • Sustainable and will not deplete the ocean's supply of fish

    Why do I need Ovega-3?
    Because DHA & EPA are essential for good health, yet they are among the most important nutrients lacking in Americans’ diets today. If you don't eat a lot of fatty fish, chances are, you are not getting an adequate supply of DHA & EPA.

    Ovega-3 is the shortest distance between you & the DHA & EPA omega-3s you need for optimal health.
    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 an FDA-inspected facility.

    Algae, what's the big deal?
    T
    hanks to Mother Nature, various species of algae have some amazingly useful properties. Certain algae are naturally high producers of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain, eye and heart health. Algae also provide a sustainable source of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid that supports heart health.

    Ovega-3's discovery.
    Are all strains of algae created equal? No. The scientists behind Ovega-3 are world leaders in discovering the properties of algae and developing their nutritional applications.

    For instance, life'sDHA, the brand of DHA used in Ovega-3, was discovered over two decades ago as scientists were studying the beneficial use of algae in long-term space flight. These scientists identified a strain of algae that naturally produces high amounts of DHA and most recently have identified another strain of algae that produces high amounts of both DHA and EPA omega-3s. This is what powers Ovega-3.

    They grow their own.
    Do all algae come from the ocean and other bodies of water? Technically yes, but they've learned how to grow their patented DHA & EPA omega-3 producing algae in stainless steel fermentors within an FDA-inspected facility. The result is a completely sustainable and vegetarian source of DHA & EPA.

    What is DHA?
    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.

    Why do I need it?
    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.

    Both the American Heart Association and the USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend DHA for good cardiovascular health. And the National Institute of Health (NIH) recommends a minimum daily intake of 220 mg of DHA for healthy adults.

    What is EPA?
    EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is also a long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid.

    Why do I need it?
    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.

    What is life'sDHA plus EPA?
    Ovega-3 is powered by life's DHA plus EPA, a vegetarian and sustainable source of the important heart healthy omega-3s DHA & EPA. life'sDHA plus EPA is produced from algae, not fish, and is therefore free of ocean-borne pollutants or the fishy aftertaste often times associated with fish oil.

    100 percent vegetarian. 100 percent sustainable.

    Dietary sources of DHA:

    • Fatty fish, such as tuna, salmon, mackerel and trout.
    • DHA-fortified products: life'sDHA™, a natural plant source of DHA, is currently used to fortify hundreds of foods, beverages and dietary supplements.

    Dietary sources of EPA:

    • Fatty fish, such as anchovies, salmon and sardines.
    • EPA-fortified products

    The Scientists Behind Ovega-3
    The scientists behind Ovega-3 are world leaders in discovering the amazingly useful properties and benefits of algae and developing their nutritional applications.

    Over two decades ago, these scientists were tasked with studying the benefits of algae in long-term space flight. In the course of this project, these scientists came to believe that algae represented a virtually untapped resource that could be screened for a variety of applications to greatly benefit human health. As a result, they not only identified a strain of algae that's a naturally high producer of DHA, but most recently, a strain was identified that produces both DHA & EPA. Martek Biosciences Corporation (now a part of DSM) owns the patents on both these remarkable strains.

      Just after purchasing a large quantity of Ovega-3 I was very disappointed to read the following article: Conclusion Overall, omega-3 PUFA supplementation was not associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality, cardiac death, sudden death, myocardial infarction, or stroke based on relative and absolute measures of association. JAMA. 2012;308(10):1024-1033 Therefore, the product came exactly as advertised. However, the most recent medical literature suggests the product is worthless.

      This is the first time I've used this product. I'm using it instead of fish oil because of an allergy to fish. So far, so good. Easy to take, capsules are not huge as are some fish oil caps, not a bad aftertaste.

      I have search for a long time for a vegan DHA+EPA supplement that does not have a fishy taste. This is finally the one! They are too large for me to swallow, but the taste is so unoffensive that I just chew them up. Great product!!
