Algae oil provides a truly sustainable and vegan source of omega-3's, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA and EPA are the same nutrients you get from fish and krill oil without having to kill anything. Other algae oil's only contain DHA and not the anti-inflammatory benefits of EPA.
Algae oil isn't just for vegans, it's the future of omega-3's for everyone.
- Nourishes brain health. Stabilize your mental health. Level out the ups and downs of your moods.*
- Helps cognitive health. Stay focused longer, go further with your physical activities without giving up so soon. Keep going and learn more.*
- Improves joint health. Recover quicker and feel better days after demanding physical sessions.*
- Supports heart and cardiovascular health. Get in longer sessions with your physical activities.*
- Strengthens the immune system. Get sick less, recover quicker.*
Algae is the planets most ancient food and source of omega-3's DHA and EPA. Fish and krill both get their omega-3's from algae, cut out the middle-man of where omega-3's originate, go straight to the source.
Algae oil has the highest bioavailability of any omega-3 source. Our algae oil is balanced with phospholipids and glycolipids making it more absorbable than fish (up to 5x more absorbable) and krill oil (up to 2x more absorbable). No fishy burps here.
Our algae is non-gmo, gluten-free, and extracted in a hexane-free way. Sustainably sourced using two strains of algae, Nannochloropsis spp. for EPA and Schizochytrium spp. for DHA. Both grown on saltwater ponds in the southwest United States, powered by the sun and renewable energy.
Algae oil naturally provides chlorophyll, carotenoids, antioxidants, and other beneficial micronutrients. These nutrients also prevent it from being susceptible to going rancid. Fish oil is very likely to go rancid by the time it makes it to a shelf near you. Algae oil also doesn't accumulate environmental toxins like fish oil typically does. No mercury here. This makes it much safer to consume.
Algae oil is the best vegan alternative to krill and fish oil. Not just for vegans, its the future of omega-3's for everyone. Plant based diets do not provide enough DHA/EPA from other alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA) plant sources of omega-3's. The conversion rate of ALA to DHA/EPA in the body is around 1%. You need to be getting DHA/EPA straight from a source. ALA omega 3's are used as energy by the body, they are not stored in vital areas of the body to aid in optimal performance like DHA/EPA are.
Warning: Do not use if under the age of 18 or if safety seal is broken/missing. Consult your health care professional before use, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, taking blood thinners, other medications, have a medical condition, or anticipate any kind of medical procedure. If you experience any adverse reactions, immediately discontinue use and contact a healthcare professional. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children.

What is algae oil?
- Algae oil is the polar-lipid portion extracted from two strains of algae. Providing omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) from one strain and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from a second strain, both bound to phospholipids and glycolipids, with carotenoids, omega-7, and chlorophyll.
What is algae oil for?
- Algae oil is for providing your body omega-3 fatty acids EPA/DHA. There is a vast amount of research on omega-3's showing that they play an essential role in optimizing nearly every organ system in the body. EPA is known for its anti-inflammatory properties throughout the body, while DHA is known for its crucial benefits for all around brain health. One example is our brains; they are made of 60% fats and of those the omega-3 fatty acid DHA makes up well over 90%. We personally find algae oil very helpful with joint health, limiting inflammation from injuries, recovery, stabilizing mood, and focus. Most modern diets typically lack omega-3s that is why it’s wise to supplement them in.
Is algae oil better than fish or krill oil? The fish oil I use has a higher amount of omega-3's than your algae oil lists, why should I use your algae oil?
- They both provide omega-3 fatty acids DHA/EPA. Although taking the bioavailability, antioxidant protection, source, regulations, true sustainability, and traceability of algae oil as a whole into consideration, versus fish oil and krill oil we believe algae oil is the superior source of omega-3's today.
- Krill oil is bound to phospholipids. Fish oil is bound to triglycerides. Algae oil is bound to glycolipds and phospholipids. Phospholipids and glycolipids are water-soluble. Triglycerides are not water-soluble. This results in algae oil to be absorbed by the body much more efficiently (up to 5x more absorbable) than fish and (up to 2x more absorbable) krill oil. This is also why algae oil does not give you the same ‘fishy burp-up’ aftertaste that you get from taking fish oil.
- Algae oil naturally contains carotenoids and chlorophyll. Both naturally protect algae oil from oxidation. Fish oil does not contain this type of protection likely causing fish oil to be oxidized and ineffective by the time it makes it to you.
- Fish oil often comes from different types of fish, then the oil is mixed together. This makes it hard to know the source of where these fish are coming from, if the fishing practices used to catch these fish are eco-friendly, and if it’s being done in a sustainable way. Our algae is grown on saltwater ponds in the US southwest, powered by the sun and renewable energy.
- Antarctic krill live in a pristine environment and fall low on the food chain resulting in a little chance of environmental contaminant build-up as opposed to fish. Algae oil has no chance of environmental contaminant build-up.
- When fish eat krill, 90% of the omega-3s from the krill are used as energy by the fish, leaving only 10% stored in the fish as omega-3s. This means it takes 10 times more fish (by weight) than krill to be caught to get the same amount of omega-3s. Krill get their omega-3's from algae, no krill need to be killed to make algae oil, it goes straight to the source of all omega-3's DHA and EPA.
How long until I notice any benefits from algae oil?
- This depends on how deficient your body is in omega-3s. When taking algae oil everyday benefits can be noticed as quickly as 2 weeks or as long as 3 months. Noticeable increase in omega-3s in red blood cells appears after at least 3 months of use.
Why did you make an omega-3 from an algae source when you can get omega-3s from plants like hemp, flax, and chia?
- We wanted to get what was more important to you first, and that’s omega-3s DHA and EPA. The vast majority of benefits from omega-3s in our body come from DHA and EPA. Hemp, flax, and chia omega-3s are in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Our bodies can convert ALA into DHA, but as you can see from the chart below out of those 10 published studies the average conversion rate of ALA into DHA was 1.38%, which isn’t very promising. ALA is for energy DHA is for function and optimizing, aim to get your ALA in the morning for fuel and your DHA at night for storing and repair. We will come out with a plant sourced omega-3 soon enough.
Fish oil upsets my stomach, would algae oil work for me?
- Algae oil is bound to glycolipids and phospholipids. Fish oil is bound to triglycerides. Phospholipids are water-soluble. Triglycerides are not water-soluble. This results in algae oil to be absorbed by the body much more efficiently (up to 5x more absorbable) than fish and (up to 2x more absorbable) krill oil. Fish oil settles on the top of fluids in the stomach which may be causing your stomach issues, whereas algae oil starts to absorb immediately. This is also why algae oil does not give you the same ‘fishy burp-up’ aftertaste that you get from fish oil.
How often can I take algae oil?
- You can take algae oil daily. 500 mg up to 3 g can be taken daily. Algae oil is best taken at night so your body has more time to store the omega-3's instead of using them as fuel throughout the day. Always consult your health care professional before using algae oil. Follow the ‘suggested use’ directions on the label before consuming.
