Pure & Essential Vegan Omega-3 & Astaxanthin provides a balanced source of both DHA and EPA long-chain omega-3, ideal for vegans and anyone seeking alternatives to fish-based sources of omega-3.

Providing a balanced 2:1 ratio of DHA and EPA in small capsules for twice-daily dosing, this supplement enhances absorption and effectively raises cellular omega-3 levels. The addition of AstaPure® astaxanthin offers superior antioxidant protection, not only to the delicate omega-3 fatty acids, but also to the body.

Supplementing with DHA and EPA omega-3 offers benefits for the brain, eyes and heart, and for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers for healthy development of the baby.

product description

This entirely algae-based omega-3 supplement provides a daily dose of 600mg of DHA and EPA, with additional antioxidant benefits from astaxanthin – a powerful and natural combination found in wild salmon and krill. Whether you are vegan or simply someone seeking effective, sustainable alternatives to animal-based products, this supplement offers a dose and concentration superior to standard fish oil, in a similarly absorbable triglyceride form. You no longer need to rely on boosting intake of omega-3 via consuming nut and seed oils like flaxseed and chia, whose omega-3 content in the form of short-chain ALA is poorly converted in the body to EPA and DHA. While oily fish is the primary source of DHA and EPA in the human diet, technology enables us now to go direct to the source – the algae on which they feed. Algae oil, the only source of 100% plant-based long chain DHA and EPA omega-3s available, has been clinically proven to be as effective as fish oil at raising levels of omega-3 in our cells (an import health marker – the Omega-3 Index).

Vegetarians & vegans have a lower overall risk of common chronic diseases. However, these diets tend to have an unbalanced omega-6:3 ratio due to limited dietary sources of EPA & DHA coupled with a high intake of nuts, seeds & grains. This can counteract some health benefits of the diet and lead to an increased risk of inflammatory, heart, brain and eye conditions, making supplementation with DHA & EPA wise.

For pregnancy and breastfeeding: DHA is proven to support normal brain and eye development in the foetus and breastfed infants. Vegan Omega-3 with Astaxanthin is ideal for those wishing to avoid fish but obtain the benefits of a long-chain omega-3 product. 

For those hypersensitive to even trace levels of heavy metals: At Igennus we better the standards set by industry bodies such as IFOS for maximum levels of PCBs, dioxins and mercury, in some cases with levels 20x lower than what is permitted (measured in parts-per-billion). That said, for those hypersensitive to any exposure at all (even through levels we are naturally exposed to through food from the land and sea), algae oil is the ideal solution. Cultivated on land in closed systems, it is naturally free from ocean-borne contaminants, including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins and microplastics. A sustainable source of omega-3 that avoids heavy metal exposure
