Vegan Algal Omega-3
Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) are two important omega 3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation and have a positive impact on brain, eye, joints and heart health.
In the marine food system, algae are the primary producers of DHA and EPA, and fish obtain their DHA and EPA from consuming algae. Wellology Vegan Algal Omega 3 provides a healthier option than regular fish oil by obtaining these healthy fatty acids from the same route as fish do, by consuming it directly from algae. The product is more sustainable for the environment and is an excellent plant-based alternative for vegans. It is free of fish allergens, mercury-free, and avoids the pollutants and toxins that have been ingested by fish in the ocean.

Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) are vital omega 3 fatty acids which provide many health benefits. DHA provides about 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in your brain. It is vital in supporting cognitive function and mood enhancement. Research indicates that people who follow vegetarian or vegan diets often have lower levels of DHA..
EPA can be converted to biochemically active eicosanoids that play numerous physiological roles and help reduce inflammation. Chronic, low-level inflammation is known to drive several common diseases. Marine algae are the true source of EPA & DHA and they form the basis of the entire omega 3 food chain. Wellology Vegan Algal Omega 3 is grown using a fermentation process and is a healthier and more environmentally friendly option to fish oil.
DHA is a key building block of brain nerve tissue. Brain synapses are the communication pathways between neurons, and they contain DHA in high levels. Low levels of DHA may impact your brain’s ability to send messages efficiently. DHA stimulates the neuronal growth which is key to learning. EPA is considered to have beneficial effects on Depression.
Omega-3 vs. omega-6
Both omega-3s and omega-6s are essential to health and balance between the two is very important. Westerners typically eat foods high in omega-6s and don’t consume enough omega-3s. For optimal health, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be between 1:1 and 4:1. A lower ration results in higher heart health.
