According to the company, the new product contains the highest concentration of EPA / DHA available in a vegetarian product, and offers all of the same great benefits of krill and fish oil.
“Fish oil has grown in popularity because of its known heart health benefits. However, many people are unaware that fish do not produce their own DHA and EPA. In fact, it’s the microalgae in their food chain that make them a rich source of these omega-3s, ”said Doug Brown, Senior Director, Nutritional Lipids.
“Life’s Omega 60 is a highly sustainable and vegetarian alternative to fish oil that makes it easier for consumers to get the same health benefits.”
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The American Heart Association has recommended the consumption of polyunsaturated fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, for good heart health.
