Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid which plays many important roles in heart health. It is not synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained from dietary sources. Research suggests that higher doses of Omega 3 are better for improving cardiovascular health, while lower doses help improve cognitive function. To maximize EPA and DHA in the body, both fats should be consumed in their converted forms, such as in fish or microalgae oil, as the body is inefficient at converting other plant based omega-3 fats into the longer chain EPA and DHA.
AOR's Omega 3 is sourced from the oil-rich algae Schizochytrium, making it an excellent choice for vegans, and it contains the active, converted forms of EPA and DHA for optimal efficacy. Algae is an especially potent form of Omega 3, as other vegan sources such as chia or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients such as cyanogenic glycosides which can interfere with mineral absorption.
