Everybody has its own rhythm and lifestyle. Some of us are active and athletic; the others prefer to sharpen their mind. But our needs are pretty much the same. We need to consume various elements, like minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats and fatty acids to ensure the normal function of our body. This article is about one of the most essential elements for our body – Omega 3 fatty acid. They are ALA (alpha-Linolenic acid) and DHA (Docosa-hexa-enoic acid). Mostly, we get ALA from the vegetables, some seeds and plant oils. Oily kinds of fish and seafood contain maximum amount of DHA, and it can even be found in a breastfeed if only it is enough in a mother’s body.
Unfortunately, marine fish rich in Omega fatty acids has a very limited habitat and not all people can get access to it. Such a fish swims in the cold northern seas and is hard to cultivate captivated. Because of this, in the 19th century, or even earlier, people began to take liquid cod-liver oil as a food supplement.
There are two types of fish oil – in a liquid form and in a granulated form. The first option is cheaper, faster absorbed by the body, but has a specific taste and odor. The encapsulated fish oil is tasteless and odorless, is much safer, but less effective. Be sure to consult a doctor before taking cod-liver oil, because it is contraindicated for allergic people, and the dosages have to be calculated individually to prevent possible side effects.
Besides cod-liver oil, there are other food additives rich in Omega 3.They are generally produced in the form of granules with a specific set of fatty acids. You can find the right supplement by consulting your doctor. Be sure to observe the dosage, because taking a large dose of the drug can cause side effects. Such supplements are produced from the liver of marine fish using the same technology as cod-liver oil. But is it possible to take Omega 3 without consuming fish and its components?
Nowadays, more people think about the environment and switch to a vegan diet. They may have to look for other ways to replenish fatty acids in the body. And there is the solution. There are food supplements which don’t contain fish products. This is Omega 3 fatty acid made of algae. That is totally vegan and that doesn’t harm the environment. We will tell you what the advantage of these supplements is.
1. Natural source of Omega 3
Algae is a natural source of Omega 3. Fish eat them and accumulate fatty acids in the body, thereby acting as their carriers until the moment of capture. We exclude this link and extract elements from the original source. Thus, it is possible to avoid the specific taste and odor of the supplement, to maintain a better cleaning process and to obtain a great Omega 3 product without fish. No fertilizer is needed for production – it grows in a controlled environment to avoid ocean pollution from the oceans.
2. Safety for the environment.
It is no secret to anyone that world fish production today is reaching a new level. Due to the increase in temperature in the oceans, the number of fish is declining, which is why some species are on the verge of extinction. Fishing vessels are polluting the water with the fuel waste which is deposited in the fish and eventually gets into our stomach. For the production of our supplements we specially build environmentally friendly algae farms without harming the environment. At the same time the marine fish cannot be raised in captivity on an industrial scale. By reducing the industrial fishing for Omega 3 production, we increase the population of fish. By growing the algae for our Omega 3, we save fish and the ocean enviroment. The growth and reproduction of algae is several times faster than the growth of fish. Another important factor is that by growing algae, we also help to get rid of the greenhouse effect caused by an increase in the amount of CO2 in the air. It is known that algae produce more than 50 percent of the planet’s oxygen. The world’s leading producers of algae, Indonesia and the Philippines, are doubling their production each year, gradually improving the quality of their products.
3. The concentration of what is needed
The quality of algae nutritional additives is beyond question. One serving of algae-based Omega 3 sometimes contains more fatty acids than the same serving of cod-liver oil. This is because algae supplements are many times better cleaned.
Algae-based Omega 3 is 100% vegan product. There is also no prohibition on eating algae or its components in any religion.
How to take and dose Omega 3?
Please note that there is a difference between taking fish oil supplements and algae supplements. Liquid fish oil is very sensitive to storage conditions. It must be stored in the refrigerator, with the lid properly closed. After the first opening of the package, fish oil is oxidized under the influence of air and is not subject to long-term storage. When taken orally, you should strictly observe the dosage, which can be from 500 mg to 3 g, depending on the characteristics of your diet, body needs, age and gender. Granulated fish oil is more convenient to store, there are several types of dosages that you will know before buying. Keep in mind that you need to consult your doctor before starting your treatment. Carefully examine the product packaging and the amount of certain fatty acids, such as ALA and DHA.
