Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid which plays many important roles in heart health. It is not synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained from dietary sources. Research suggests that higher doses of Omega 3 are better for improving cardiovascular health, while lower doses help improve cognitive function. To maximize EPA and DHA in the body, both fats should be consumed in their “converted” forms, such as in fish or microalgae oil, as the body is inefficient at converting other plant based omega-3 fats into the longer chain EPA and DHA. EPA is the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid associated with downregulating the cytokines which contribute to chronic inflammation, heart disease, neurological diseases, and joint pain. In studies, supplementing with EPA was also associated with optimal mental health.
AOR’s Omega 3 is sourced from the oil-rich algae Schizochytrium, making it an excellent choice for vegans, and it contains the active, converted forms of EPA and DHA for optimal efficacy. Algae is an especially potent form of Omega 3, as other vegan sources such as chia or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients such as cyanogenic glycosides which can interfere with mineral absorption.
Keeping with our committment to sustainability, all of AOR’s Eco Series product labels and printed materials have been printed on stone paper. Stone Paper is made from reclaimed limestone (calcium carbonate), recycled concrete, and a small amount of HDPE (high density polyethylene). These components are combined in an environmentally friendly manufacturing process under pressure and heat, using no water, dyes, or bleaches. One tonne of stone paper saves 20 trees and 16,000 gallons of water, resulting in a carbon footprint rudction of 67% when compared to pulp paper.
Omega 3 is a source of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for the maintenance of good health, and helps support the development of the brain, eyes and nerves in AOR’s patent pending Vsoftgel™ technology, to provide greater absorption.
