To ensure optimal health if vegetarian or vegan, it is vitally important to seek out sources of key healthy vegetarian nutrients such as omega-3s and B vitamins - it's not just about ensuring adequate protein intake when following a plant-based diet.
Maintaining optimal levels of the key long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA can be challenging if fish is excluded from the diet. Vegetarians and vegans are reliant upon the body's complex enzyme-mediated processes to produce these long-chain omega-3s from short-chain omega-3s, such as ALA found in flaxseed oil. Many factors can compromise the rate of conversion, however, including nutrient deficiency, stress, viral infections and alcohol. As such, ALA is converted to EPA at a rate of only 4-8% - hence recommended intake of these oils is approximately 3-4 teaspoons. Lesser known echium seed oil is the richest source of the rare omega-3 SDA, which is a direct precursor to EPA and offers a superior conversion rate to EPA of approximately 20%.
With up to 5x better conversion, SDA in Echiomega echium seed oil is the most effective ‘fish-oil alternative’ available. In addition to SDA omega-3, echium seed oil is also a rich source of anti-inflammatory omega-6 GLA and omega-9 oleic acid. Its unique omega-3-6-9 profile makes Echiomega the ideal vegan supplement for supporting cardiovascular health, as well as regulating immune function and inflammation.
Homocysteine Control and Neurobalance supplements are also suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
