The fishless alternative with the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
Omega-3 acids are vital nutrients we have to ingest regularly with our food. Ranking among the most biologically active omega-3 fatty acids are ePa (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHa (docosahexaenoic acid). Their effects are extremely varied and they make important supportive contributions to our health and well-being (see also Dr. Rath Omega e™ ﬁsh oil capsules).
One of the most important dietary sources of these nutrients are oily sea ﬁsh. These ﬁsh concentrate the valuable fatty acids in themselves by feeding on algae or on small ﬁsh, again feeding on microalgae. Thus algae can be regarded as the original source of omega-3 fatty acids.
In case of a vegetarian or vegan diet, linseed oil or other plant-based oils are often drawn on in order to obtain omega-3 fatty acids. The reason: plant-based oils contain ala (alpha linolenic acid), a shorter-chain omega-3 fatty acid. This is the precursor for the long-chain DHa and ePa fatty acids which then in turn have to be formed by our body on its own.
With Dr. Rath Omega 3 Vegan™ these high quality omega-3 fatty acids DHa and ePa are directly available – from an original, plant-based source.
Dr. Rath Omega 3 Vegan™
Dr. Rath Omega 3 Vegan™ contains the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids DHa and ePa. These are extracted from the microalga schizochytrium, which is the basis for our high quality, omega-3-rich oil, and offer vegetarians and vegans an ideal possibility to supple- ment their diet with these valuable nutrient components:
- as a contribution to a normal brain function (DHa)*
- For the support for a normal cardiac function (ePa/DHa)*
- as a contribution to the maintenance of the normal eyesight (DHa)*
* The positive effect is based on a daily intake of at least 250 mg.
