Omega 3 algal oil
A lot of people think that omega 3 comes from fish. That is incorrect. Omega 3 comes from the algae that fish eat, as a result of which fish contain omega 3. We extract our omega 3 directly from these algae. This is a plant-based source and, therefore, our omega 3 is vegan. In addition, this direct extraction ensures that our omega 3 is pure and checked and that the toxins that the fish contain have been filtered from it.
