Is painful inflammation slowing you down?

 

Wide-spread inflammation is a common problem that leads to physical, emotional, and mental decline. It’s almost always blamed on poor diets overloaded with omega-6 fatty acids.

But, even though omega-6s can and do contribute to inflammation, not all of them are bad. In fact, certain omega 6s are necessary for good health. So, limiting them isn’t likely to fix the problem.

The truth is, our standard American diet is lacking in high quality omega-3s and what omega-3s it does provide are usually in a form that our bodies don’t use well.

We need biologically active forms like EPA and DHA – those found in fatty fish like salmon – But there are problems with relying on fish or fish oil supplements.

  • Fresh fish is expensive, especially with today’s inflation
  • Fresh fish and fish oils have a high risk of mercury contamination
  • Fish oil products can be unstable and go rancid quickly
  • Modern farming and fishing methods are ecologically destructive
  • Specialty diets (vegan and vegetarian) do not allow fish 

For these reasons, many people turn to foods fortified with omega-3s including natural plant sources such as flax and chia seed. But these foods provide omega-3s as Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) – an inactive form that, despite being considered an essential nutrient by the FDA, is not usable by our bodies. It must be converted into biologically active forms such as Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA). Unfortunately, on average, only 5% of ALA gets converted and that’s only IF we aren’t deficient in certain minerals or dealing with other health issues that compromise the conversion process.

Thankfully, there’s a better alternative. 

Algae is the only plant-based source of DHA and EPA Omega-3 Fatty Acids and it’s where fish get their omega-3s. Algae is a renewable source easily farmed in eco-friendly facilities. Since there are no fish involved, algae-based omega-3 supplements don’t have the same risk of mercury contamination and there are no unpleasant fishy burps.

 

The Benefits of DHA and EPA Omega-3s

 

May Help Reduce Broad-Range Inflammation

Omega 3s are commonly recommended to help counteract the effects of inflammatory omega 6s, but there are differences between how DHA and EPA work.

DHA has shown to lower the production of four proinflammatory proteins, while EPA only lowers one type. Additionally, DHA has shown to lower the secretion of white blood cells from three types of pro-inflammatory proteins, while EPA again only lowers one.

EPA, on the other hand, may be better at helping the body maintain a healthy balance between proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory proteins through its effects on the immune system (1).

May Help Protect Against Cardiovascular Disease

There is a growing body of scientific studies on the effects of omega 3s on heart disease risk factors. Many of these studies have found associations between increased omega 3 intake and improvements in triglyceride levels and cholesterol profiles. In fact, omega 3s are even given to certain individuals with very high triglyceride levels as a prescription. 

Supports Brain Development & Sustained Brain Function

DHA is essential for fetal brains and eyes during pregnancy and early childhood with known deficiencies being linked with learning disabilities and other cognitive disorders later in life.

Further, with natural aging, our brain’s structure begins to change and it’s fat and DHA content drops. These changes are associated with degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Not surprisingly, multiple studies have linked DHA supplementation with substantial improvements in overall brain function.

FAQ's
How do I store this and how long is it good for?
Store in a cool, dry place and use by the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle.
Does this contain any fish?
Algal Omega does not contain any fish or fish by-products.
What are bioactive omega-3s?
Bioactive omega-3 forms are Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA). The most common plant-based form, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), is not bioactive and must be converted in the body into one of the other two forms. Only 1-10% of ALA is successfully converted in healthy individuals.
Where is the algae sourced from?
Algal Omega is sourced from a controlled environment in South Carolina, USA. The algae is sustainably grown in stainless steel tanks free of ocean-borne contaminants
Does this product have a fishy taste like other omega-3 supplements?
Our Algal Omega softgels do not have a noticeable scent or taste and because they are not made with fish, there is no fishy smell or aftertaste.
Can children take Algal Omega?
Omega-3s, specifically DHA, are important for developing brains and eyes. For dosage recommendations, please check with your pediatrician as each child's nutritional needs are unique.
