If you find yourself trudging through your day, forgetting what you walked into the room for, or just feeling down, the answer could be as simple as getting adequate omega-3s. Omega-3 deficiency is incredibly common. This is because your body does not produce them on its own—they must be obtained through diet.
Low levels of DHA have been associated with Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and cognitive impairment.(3) Similarly, people suffering from depression were found to have lower levels of omega-3s than healthy volunteers.(4)
There’s just one little problem with fish oil: Mercury contamination. As of 2013, science has confirmed that mercury contamination in fish is now global.6
We have a vegan alternative to fish oil supplements that’s completely free of contaminants such as mercury, PCBs, and dioxins. O-Mega-Zen3 DHA is derived from marine microalgae – the base of the marine food chain where fish get their DHA from. Grown under controlled conditions to insure a very clean product, this concentrated form of DHA comes in gluten-free vegicaps and is combined with a small amount of vitamin E to preserve freshness.
“Love this stuff! Doesn’t have a fishy after taste and it’s benefits would make it worth the while if it did :)” – Simone
Sacha inchi is an Amazonian vine which has been used by indigenous cultures for hundreds of years for its health-giving properties. The oil from the star-shaped sacha inchi seed is one of the highest plant sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids on the planet.
Most sacha inchi products are roasted, which can damage delicate oils and nutrients. Our sustainably grown sacha inchi oil is created using a low-temperature, cold-press process that keeps nutrients intact. When you and your family enjoy sacha inchi oil, you’re getting your omega-3s and helping to protect the endangered fertile land in the Amazonian rainforest from being razed for raw materials that are less sustainable. It’s good for you, and the planet!
