DHA & EPA for Vegetarians & Vegans
Flax oil and milled flax seeds are a rich vegetarian omega 3 source, but flax doesn't contain DHA or EPA. Neither does hemp seed omega-3, linseed-or olive oil. For example, seed plant sources such as flax oil has a precursor omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which eventually allows the body to produce some eicosapentaeoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). See Pure One Ingredients.
- Omega 3 benefits are generally associated with fish and fish oil, but these are not the only food sources rich in marine fatty acids.
- Golden algae oil is the richest marine omega-3 source and the original source of fish omega-3s in the food chain. We go to the source.
- Vegetarians and Vegans may have high triglycerides with weight gain, high carbohydrate diet and low fitness levels.
- 100% VEGAN OIL AND CAPSULE, THAT'S THE PURE ONE DIFFERENCE

- Vegetarian dieters and vegans already have a lower risk of heart problems, however brain beneficial omega-3 DHA fatty acids are needed to combat modern deficiencies.
- Affect, mental health and nervous system health are all positively supported by DHA sufficiency, according to research studies.
