Marine sources such as fish and krill do not produce the omega-3 fatty acids, but rather accumulate it in their fatty tissue from the algae they consume. Fatty tissue also accumulates industrial and environmental contaminants; thus oils derived from these tissues contain high concentrations of toxins.
Since fish are the most economical way to extract essential fatty acids, the demand for fish oil supplements is affecting the world’s fish population. Over 70% of fish species are either fully exploited or depleted. Studies have predicted that if overfishing continues, there will be a complete collapse of the ocean’s ecosystem by 2048.
ALA – Alpha-Linolenic Acid
ALA is an essential small-chain fatty acid that is converted into long-chain EPA and DHA.
Polar Lipids – Oil and Water Soluble
AlmegaPL® contains both a phospholipid and glycolipid, making it a unique supplement as it is both oil and water soluble. Fish oil-based omega-3 products break apart and float on top of the stomach and gastric juices, which cause that unpleasant “fishy aftertaste.” AlmegaPL® polar lipids are bioavailable and enable the omega-3s to digest quickly and transport the essential fatty acids to the intestinal walls and bloodstream.
Algae Oil & AlmegaPL®
Are directly derived from pure algae and extract from a natural strain of microalgae containing phospholipids and glycolipids, which allow your body to absorb more omega-3s than from krill or fish oil. This oil contains DHA, which accounts for 97% of the omega-3 fats in the brain and naturally contains high levels of EPA.
The combination of Algae Oil and AlmegaPL® contains all omega-3 fatty acids: EPA, DHA, omega 3, 6, 7, and 9.
DHA – Docosahexaenoic Acid
DHA is considered essential for proper brain development and growth as it improves the fluidity and flexibility of neurons while enhancing communication between the neurons. DHA has been shown to reduce brain degeneration, improve short and long-term memory, increase visual acuity, and improve the quality of life. The lack of DHA can result in learning deficits and the onset of Alzheimer’s.
EPA – Eicosapentaenoic Acid
Is primarily known for its anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting the synthesis of the molecules responsible for causing inflammation. EPA is also recognized for its ability to improve mental stability, and there is significant evidence that it is the best option to enhance your mood. EPA also supports the cardiovascular and immune systems.
Chlorophyll – Plant Pigment
Chlorophyll is a plant pigment that binds to potential carcinogens and blocks absorption. Chlorophyll improves liver detoxification by naturally eliminating toxins and slowing the growth rate of harmful bacteria (beneficial for healing wounds). It also improves digestion by increasing the metabolism and helping with weight management.
Optimize Your Brain and Heart Health!
As a new Nutritarian on Dr. Fuhrman's plan, I know I need EPA DHA. With so many competitors out there it was hard to know what to take. My Naturopath recommended this brand, I feel safe taking it and like the auto-refill option. SunWarrior sends clear reminders at each step and it's easy to change my order.
Thank you so much for the kind words and the feedback! I am glad our DHA/EPA Omega-3 from Algae is working for you. Light. Energy. Love. Sunwarrior
I take Omega 3 Vegan as part of my antidepressant regimen. My therapist recommended me trying this instead of increasing my dose of medication. I have been taking it for over 6 months and notice the difference after 3 months. Not only in my overall well being, but lowered my cholesterol as well. I am a fan and give it 5+ stars.
Hey Teresa, Thanks for sharing this great news with us! We hope you continue to be a Sunwarrior fan and really appreciate you. Thanks for your feedback.
Third time purchasing this and I've also recomended it to frienew. I personally noticed some mental clarity after I started taking this consistently and I consider it a staple.
Hi Sara, Thanks for the great review. We love hearing results like this. We appreciate you and hope you continue to explore our line!
