Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are named as such, as they are essential to our health. Unfortunately we can’t synthesise these ourselves, therefore the only way to obtain them is through our diet and supplementation. Omega 3 is integral to the health of all cells, and has been shown to provide many positive benefits for our health and wellbeing.
In the past vegetarians needed to take flaxseed oil for their omega 3 intake. However flaxseed provides the body with omega-3 in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). ALA is not equivalent to DHA or EPA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted to EPA in order to be effective. Lifestream v-omega 3 is an exclusive formula with a powerful combination of algae and plant based ingredients to provide the body with equivalent levels of omega 3 as standard fish oil with the advantage of added vitamin D.
The main source of vitamin D is via exposure to sunlight. So as people start to spend more time in doors both at work and/or at home, risks of deficiencies increase. This makes supplemental Vitamin D a consideration. Vitamin D works with calcium to support its absorption into the bone, which may help to maintain strong healthy bones. V-omega 3 provides a vegan approved D3 supplement as an alternative to animal sourced Vitamin D.
The most sustainable and long term alternative to fish sourced omega 3 is renewable algal sources. Lifestream offer this sustainable and vegetarian source as the 100% clean, pure and natural omega 3 supplement to deliver the health benefits to you and our oceans.
