Frequently Asked Questions
Omega 3 DHA, Algae Oil
Yes, omega 3 from algae oil is thé sustainable alternative to fish oil and is equal in terms of functionality. Read why here below.
- Fish also get their high Omega 3 values from algae. Agen are therefore the natural source of Omega 3. The effect is exactly the same.
- The quality of algae oil is better than fish oil because fish generally carry a lot of ocean pollution such as heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins.
- The algae are grown in a controlled environment and are therefore 100% clean.
- It takes much less energy to make algae oil. This is because algae grow on sunlight. The oil also does not need to be purified or processed because the algae are grown in a closed system that is 100% clean.
About 25% of the total global fishery goes to the Omega 3 industry and contributes significantly to overfishing. Overfishing threatens many animal species to extinction and disrupts the ecosystem of our oceans and the entire planet. If we continue with this, it will have far-reaching consequences.
By taking Omega 3 from Algae instead of Fish, you contribute to a solution to this immense problem. Each Ekopura Omega 3 saves the life of 30 fish and any bycatch associated with fishing.
Our Vegan Omega 3 Algae Oil capsules contain 250mg DHA and 5mg EPA.
The human body itself can also produce EPA from DHA. The 250mg DHA in our capsule is therefore sufficient to provide the recommended daily omega 3 requirement.
However, if you want a capsule that also has a high EPA value, we now have a Vegan Omega 3 EPA + DHA available. View the product.
1 capsule contains exactly the daily recommended amount of Omega 3 for adults.
1-2 capsules per day is therefore sufficient to provide for the daily Omega 3 requirement.
In some cases it is advisable to take more. This can be in case of an Omega 3 deficiency or during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We recommend in these cases to take 2-3 capsules per day. Possibly in combination with our Vegan Omega 3 EPA + DHA.
The shelf life is always stated on the back of the packaging, at the bottom.
We guarantee a minimum shelf life of 12 months.
In reality, however, this is much longer because we produce regularly and have small stocks. It is therefore possible to purchase several products at the same time for a longer period.
The capsules are best stored inside the packaging, closed off and at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and out of the reach of children. The ideal temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius.
