The most complete and highest potency vegetarian omega-3, with more than 20x more DHA than flax! NutraVege is a plant-based, vegetarian source of omega-3 to help support good health.* Available in a delicious citrus flavour.
Echium plantagineum, a common plant native to many parts of the world including western and southern Europe, represents an exciting alternative source of omega-3. Unlike flax seed oil, echium oil contains the omega-3 Stearidonic acid (SDA), which readily converts to EPA. Studies suggest that SDA from echium converts to EPA at a rate of up to 30% (compared to 3.28% for flax). A further advantage of echium is that it is also a natural source of the omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Unlike most omega-6 fatty acids, GLA supports a healthy inflammation response in the body and promotes healthy skin.*
Algal DHA, from the marine algae Schizochytrium sp., is an exceptional source of DHA. Unlike land plants, certain aquatic species have the ability to synthesize the omega-3 DHA. The DHA content in most fish originates from the consumption of algae; therefore, the DHA present in NutraVege is identical to that found in fish.
