Did you know that fish do not produce more DHA than humans?

To put this into context: 99.9% of the oils used to make omega-3-rich dietary supplements come from fish or, increasingly, from Antarctic krill (a mini crustacean that forms the basis of all marine fauna, particularly whales). A sad fact …
  • 25% of the world’s fish is used to make dietary supplements rich in omega 3.
  • Since 2000, the quantity of krill in the oceans has been divided by 5! Although fishing is not solely responsible for this depletion, its intensification is putting all Antarctic fauna (cetaceans, seals, penguins, etc.) at risk!

Fish don’t produce more DHA than humans, but they’re full of it because their main food source (microalgae) is too…

Where does our DHA come from?

Omega-3 algae oil comes from microalgae. The oil in our 100% algal DHA is derived from the microalgae Schizochytrium sp., which offers the advantage of being a sustainable, 100% plant-based source grown outside the oceans. That’s why we’re actively committed to preserving marine ecosystems by choosing DHA derived from microalgae. The microalga Schizochytrium sp. is a genus ofunicellular eukaryotes (in the Thraustochytriaceae family). It occurs naturally in coastal marine habitats. Among plants, only microalgae are capable of synthesizing EPA and DHA. They are the basis of the entire ocean food chain. Since cultures of Schizochytrium Sp. are carried out in above-ground basins (with purified water), our DHA is free from harmful substances such as heavy metals and other toxins that pollute the oceans. Our DHA not only protects the oceans, but also your health.
