Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that are very important to human health. Clinically proven benefits include improving lipid profiles, enhancing joint mobility and promoting overall heart health.
Omega 3s are called Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) because our bodies cannot make them and it is essential to eat foods or take supplements containing them.
There are three kinds of Omega 3 EFAs:
- ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)
- EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)
- DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
ALA is found in many common foods, including vegetable oils and leafy greens. EPA and DHA only occur naturally in marine sources, primarily fatty fish and phytoplankton.
PhytOriginal is an Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid dietary supplement that supports your recommended daily allowance of EPA.
Phytoplankton and the Food Chain
High levels of EPA concentrate in fatty fish because of their diet, and most EFA supplements are processed fish oil capsules. There are many problems with harvesting from near the top of the food chain to manufacture supplements, from overfishing the oceans to the buildup of toxic pollutants in the fish.
Phytoplankton are the foundation of the food chain. They turn sunlight and carbon dioxide into nutrients that feed the oceans, and ourselves. Live phytoplankton are a rich and renewable source of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids.
PhytOriginal is the only EFA supplement on the market offering all the benefits of live marine phytoplankton. It’s very simple – consume phytoplankton, the primary natural source of Omega 3 EFAs – and eliminate all the health risks, side effects and nutrient loss related to consuming processed fish oil products.
