What Is It?
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. The numerous health benefits of omega-3 make this essential fat an important part of every supplement regimen, especially since many studies have shown that the omega-3 status of North Americans is considerably low, especially in vegans and vegetarians.
OSG’s Cardio 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. Most marine EPA and DHA do not originate with fish, but accumulate up the marine food chain from sources like microalgae, so we are just going straight to the source and leaving animals out of the equation. Non-algae based omega-3 sources such as chia, or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients such as cyanogenic glycosides which can interfere with mineral absorption.
