Why omega-3 from algae oil?
Algae are the staple food of krill, fish eat krill and (most) people eat fish. Fish serves people as a natural source of EPA and DHA. But not everyone eats fish or likes it. How do people who do not want to or cannot eat fish get an extra portion of healthy omega-3 fatty acids? Algae are the obvious source. Algae are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and contain DHA. DHA has, of the omega-3 fatty acids ALA, EPA and DHA, the longest chain (22) and the most unsaturated compounds (6). This complex and longest omega-3 fatty acid can be converted by the body into the less complex EPA as required.
In addition, the fatty acid DHA, *at a daily intake of 250 mg DHA, contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function and vision.
The advantages of Bonusan Omega-3 Algae Oil
Bonusan Omega-3 Algae Oil is a 100% vegetable supplement. This makes it suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. It offers a good alternative for people who prefer not to use fish oil, but want to supplement omega-3 fatty acids. Bonusan Omega-3 Algae Oil Fatty Acids offers a conscious choice, because the production of algae oil has a relatively low CO2 footprint. Algae are at the beginning of the food chain and are a pure source of omega-3 fatty acids. This means that less processing is required of the base product and as many of the ingredients as possible are retained with as little residue as possible.
The Omega-3 Algae Oil softgels are easy to swallow. Algae oil naturally has a typical seaweed-like smell and taste, but this taste becomes stronger when the oil oxidises. Fatty acid oxidation occurs when the oil comes into contact with oxygen, moisture and heat can accelerate this process. The softgel and dark-coloured packaging protect the algal oil from fatty acid oxidation. By storing the supplement in a dry, cool and dark environment, the fatty acids remain stable and of high quality for longer. The algae oil softgel itself is odourless and tasteless.
The softgels of Omega-3 Algae Oil are made from tapioca starch and not from fish, pork or beef gelatine.
They are easy to swallow, odourless and tasteless.
The added vitamin D3 is obtained from lichen. Lichens are fungi that live in symbiosis with algae or blue-green algae. Vitamin D3 from lichen is the same vitamin D3 that is obtained from sheep’s wool fat.
Algae oil suitable as vegetable variant of omega-3
Bonusan Omega-3 Algae Oil provides vegetarians, vegans and people who would like to use a vegetable variant of omega-3 fatty acids with a good alternative for fish oil and krill oil. The softgels are easy to swallow and fit into a daily supplement of a good and varied diet.
High quality thanks to cultivated algae and vegetable auxiliary substances
For our products, we strive for the highest possible quality of the active ingredients. Therefore, we use algae produced in a protected and controlled environment for the production of our algae oil. These algae are cultivated so that there is control over the nutrients present and the hygiene of the water in which the algae grow. In this way, we can maintain our quality standard optimally. In addition, unlike harvesting algae from the natural environment, the cultivation of algae does not have a negative impact on the marine ecosystem.
After extraction from the algae, the oil is thoroughly purified and meets our strict quality requirements. For stabilisation of the algae oil, it was decided to add the vegetable auxiliary substances tocopherols (vitamin E), vitamin C and rosemary extract. This way, the product remains 100% vegetable.
