Ingredients in MetaPure Algal Oil has been shown to provide a sustainable and pure source of vegan omega-3 fatty acids for health and wellbeing. Support cognitive and mental function. Maintain a healthy pregnancy.
MetaPure Algal Oil provides a vegan source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) derived from algae, encapsulated in tapioca-based softgels. Algae-rich EFAs exert the same therapeutic benefits as EPA and DHA derived from traditional fish oil. MetaPure Algal Oil is sourced from algae grown under closed and controlled conditions ensuring the algae are not exposed to environmental contaminants present in oceans. MetaPure Algal Oil is rigorously screened for contaminants such as heavy metals (cadmium, lead, mercury and arsenic) and oxidation (anisidine and Mperoxide) ensuring purity levels that significantly exceed TGA standards, delivering a fresh and pure product.
MetaPure Algal Oil contains vegan-friendly DHA, which is required for brain, nervous system and cognitive health. DHA is integral to neural membrane phospholipid composition in the brain, retina and neural tissues, making DHA an essential prescription for people affected by memory or vision related conditions. Both EPA and DHA has been shown to improve cognitive function while EFAs have been shown to regulate mood.
DHA is essential for prenatal human brain development with a deficiency having marked consequences for vision, cognition, cerebellar function, and neurological health. DHA is critical for brain growth, which is especially rapid from the third trimester of pregnancy until 18 months after birth. DHA is conferred to infants via the placenta and breastfeeding, however human milk levels of DHA have shown variations relating to maternal dietary DHA intake.
MetaPure Algal oil provides a vegan source of EPA and DHA, ideal for those undertaking sustainable or vegan lifestyles looking to maintain general health. Up to 80% of Australians are not meeting the recommended daily intake for omega-3 EFAs. Omega-3 EFAs play key roles in the body influencing inflammatory mechanisms and the health of cell membranes, the brain and cardiovascular, reproductive, and musculoskeletal systems. Although dietary intake is important, enzymatic conversion in the body to yield EPA and DHA is inefficient, reinforcing the importance of omega-3 supplementation.
