GreenOMEGA 3is ideal for vegans and vegetarians who want an Omega 3 supplement with all of the benefits of fish oil, butwithout the fishand the related sustainability issue of using a fish source.
While most people know fish are a rich source of Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), many don’t know that the fish actual get these essential fatty acids from the marine microalgae they eat in their natural environment.
SoGreenOMEGA 3has by-passed the fish and gone straight to the source to get these essential Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA from the very same organic marine microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.) the fish get them from.
The benefits of a diet rich in Omega 3 (DHA and EPA) are well known to include heart, brain and eye health.
Help save our precious Oceans …
Over 700,000 tonnes* of fish are now taken annually from our oceans for fish oil with over 21%* of that going into fish oil supplements. If this continues, experts say we will soon lose many fish species and marine ecosystems in just one generation. That’s bad news for the marine environment, but now there is some good news …
We don’t need to kill fish for Omega 3 essential fatty acids!
Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are essential for humans – this means our bodies don’t make them – we have to get them from the food we eat. We can get Omega3 from eating fish but not easily in the quantities we need, hence the need for fish oil supplements.
But now there is no need to harvest the fish for their oil because we can get our DHA and EPA from the same marine microalgae the fish do.
GreenOMEGA 3from renewable algal source is a vegan alternative to fish oil for essential DHA and EPA. Algal derived oils are 100% clean, free from heavy metal like mercury and arsenic and do not contribute to the destruction of our ravaged oceans.
ChooseGreenOMEGA 3as your daily source of DHA and EPA … and save the fish!

GreenOMEGA 3is a rich vegan source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) derived from the clean, green marine microalgae.
Each vegan capsule contains 850mg ofLife'sOMEGA3™ marine microalgae oil delivering 255mg DHA and 127mg EPA.
GreenOMEGA 3is a safe and effective way to get DHA and EPA every day, without the need for fish oil.
THE VEGAN ALTERNATIVE TO FISH OIL
Fish oil offers a number of proven benefits to health, but fish oil does not suit Vegetarian and Vegans and those who care about the world’s fish population being managed for long term sustainability.
GreenOMEGA 3satisfies those who want all the DHA and EPA essential fatty acid benefits, but from a vegetarian source.
In fact, fish obtain their DHA and EPA from consuming marine microalgae, so by going straight to the source consumers can get these healthy fatty acids from the same natural food-source that fish do.
Marine microalgae oil has recently emerged as an efficient and environmentally friendly source of DHA and EPA and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) at doses up to 2g/day as a dietary supplement. Microalgae oil contains a larger proportion of DHA than EPA andGreenOMEGA 3with 100%Life'sOMEGA3™ is one of the first high potency, vegan and non-GMO omega-3 fatty acid products on the Australian market.
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to human health and are thus deemed 'essential fatty acids', since they cannot be produced by the body and have to come from our diet.
The two most important components of Omega 3 are DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid), which are found most prominently in oily fish – but the amounts delivered by the usual Western consumption of oily fish are not sufficient – hence the need for supplementation.
The current Western diet is rich in omega 6 from seed and vegetable oils, but the inflammatory action of Omega 6 has prompted the need for increasing the balancing intake of Omega 3.
There is a huge body of evidence to demonstrate the positive health benefits that can be gained from a diet rich in Omega 3s. With more than 25,000 published papers to date, there is continued investment to support research into health benefits.
To date, Omega 3 supplementation has been mostly supplied by fish oil, but with questions over sustainability together with the increasing change to a vegan or vegetarian diet, there has been a shift in demand to Omega 3 derived from sustainably cultivated marine micolagae. So by using Pure Plant-SourceGreenOMEGA 3you are quite literally cutting out the 'middle-fish'!
So there it is –Pure Plant-SourceGreenOMEGA 3has all the benefits of fish oil, without the highly processed fish or the associated environmental and sustainability issues!
