Cellana’s Marine Algae Produce Healthy Nutritional Oils That Contain an Abundance of Omega-3s
Algae found in the sea are a major source of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs), such as Omega-3s, which are essential for good health. These essential fatty acids are required for our bodies to maintain proper health but must be obtained from food or supplements, as the body cannot make them.
Health benefits from Omega-3s are believed to include:
- Boosting brain function and concentration
- Improving skin and hair condition
- Promoting weight loss
- Increasing longevity
- Countering depression
The FDA has issued a qualified health claim for reduced risk of coronary heart disease on conventional foods that contain EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to cardiac disease, many believe that EPA and DHA may aid in addressing cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
Get answers to some of the most asked questions about Omega-3s from the experts.
Renew™ EPA and Renew™ DHA—
A More Sustainable Source of Omega-3s
The main source of Omega-3s currently is fish oil. However, fish-sourced Omega-3s are not ideal, as the Omega-3s must travel up an extensive food chain before they reach the source fish.
Cellana “cuts out the middle-fish” by growing marine microalgae directly and extracting the algae oil within to produce ReNew™ EPA and ReNew™ DHA. The result—a more cost-effective and sustainable source of Omega-3s.
In addition, algae oil sources of Omega-3s are free of the mercury, dioxins, and PCBs that are often found in fish used for fish oil.
