Optim DHAlg is a dietary supplement based on omega-3 algae oil naturally rich in DHA, with exceptional quality and organoleptic properties. Where does the omega-3 from algae oil come from? Why choose Omega-3 DHA from algae? What is the difference between algae oil and fish oil?
Where does the omega-3 from algae oil come from?
Omega-3 fatty acids from algae oil are produced by microalgae. Optim DHAlg oil comes from the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. which has the advantage of being a sustainable, 100% plant-based source that is grown outside the oceans.
What are microalgae?
The term microalgae, sometimes called microphyte, refers to microscopic algae. The microalgae Schizochytrium sp. is a genus of unicellular eukaryotes of the family Thraustochytriaceae. It occurs naturally in coastal marine habitats. Only microalgae are capable of synthesizing EPA and DHA from plants. They are at the base of the entire ocean food chain.
How are the Omega-3 and DHA from Optim DHAlg Algae Oil produced?
100% European production
Microalgae are fermented in bioreactors in Europe. The algae oil is then extracted from the microalgae by an enzymatic extraction process and at low temperature.
No solvents are used.
The crude oil contains a high percentage of omega-3 DHA. This process is environmentally friendly and does not use materials of marine origin.
The oil is then refined and stabilized in France by adding a mixture of antioxidants.
An excellent quality oil
The oil is produced from a pure and natural source of DHA from Schizochytrium sp. algae, which is grown in a very strict and controlled environment.
Contaminant levels are undetectable.
Optim DHAlg algae oil has excellent stability due to the unique stabilization process with a blend of antioxidants. This process prevents the degradation of polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Why choose Omega-3 DHA from algae oil?
Omega-3 algae oils come from sustainable sources of microalgae, These oils are guaranteed GMO-free and allergen-free. A 100% vegetable product ideal for vegetarians, vegans or anyone else looking for a high-quality product.
What are the benefits of DHA?According to the EFSA*, a daily intake of 250mg of DHA is equivalent to 1 capsule of Optim DHAlg:
- contributes to the normal functioning of the brain
- and, contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
* Scientific opinion of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) establishing the recommendations on DHA intake applicable in Europe.
What is the difference between an omega-3 from algae oil and an omega-3 from fish oil?
Algae oil is produced outside the oceans, on land in bioreactors. In this way, the quality of the oils can be perfectly controlled.
The manufacturing process involves very few steps: cultivation, extraction, purification and stabilization.
On the other hand, fish oils, especially those containing more than 50% omega-3, are obtained after numerous purification and extraction stages. They are often obtained from fish caught in remote areas (Pacific Ocean, North Atlantic Ocean).
Omega-3s from algae are therefore an alternative to fish oils. They have the advantage of providing a sustainable product of high quality.
