Source-Omega, a leading omega-3 innovations company announces its proprietary 100% plant-based supplement contains the world's only fully disclosed and approved source of microalgae oil with both omega-3s DHA & EPA.
CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina 2008. Source-Omega, a leading nutraceutical innovations company and maker of PURE ONE announced today that its proprietary 100% plant-based supplement contains the world's only openly disclosed and fullly approved source of microalgae oil for both long chain omega-3s DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). These essential long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are for brain, eye and heart health*. These are now available in the product branded PURE ONE(TM)-the first Optimized Omega3(TM) from Source-Omega(TM).
PURE ONE - Optimized Omega3 for adults and children of all ages, provides 300 mg DHA + 10 mg EPA per capsule to perfectly match the body's own golden ratio of omega-3s, says company President and Chief Scientist Scott Doughman, PhD. Building on established studies in human omega-3 metabolism and his own scientific research, Dr. Doughman says he discovered a rock star omega-3 idea. "I discovered, as you would a rock-star, the world's only available documented source of oil for both DHA and EPA and this oil directly matches the human body's turnover and composition needs for omega-3 fatty acids."
That optimal source is available from Source-Omega online. The pure oil has no risk of ocean contaminants, Doughman said. Source-Omega's supplements are available at (http://www.source-omega.com). Dr Doughman's S-oil analysis and microalgae oil DHA clinical trial review is found in an independent article published by Dr. Doughman and international colleagues, see Doughman et. al., Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Nutrition and Medicine: Considering Microalgae oil as a Vegetarian Source of EPA and DHA. Current Diabetes Reviews, Bantham Press, 2007 Aug; 3(3):198-203.
Fish are often thought to be the only source of DHA omega-3. However, PURE ONE offers a trusted, vegetarian form of DHA and EPA that contains no ocean pollutants, allergens, heavy metals or toxins. Fish are a source of DHA because of the DHA-rich microalgae in their food chain. With PURE ONE Source-Omega references their disclosed source and the oil's decades of safety as a food oil.
Expert bodies such as the FDA have advised pregnant and nursing women to limit their consumption of certain types of fish, the primary dietary source of DHA, due to the potentially high levels of contaminants such as mercury found in certain wild and farmed fish. DHA is especially important for healthy growth and development during the early childhood stages of life when focus and attention are influenced by nervous system functioning and DHA deficiencies, which may have loose ties to behaviors in young children, however more research is needed to provide solid evidence to support what parents have reported in related peer reviewed studies.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the organs, brain and eyes to support cognitive, metabolic and cardiovascular health throughout life. There is a large and growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages, from infants to aging adults, benefit from an adequate supply of DHA omega-3 in the diet. Scientific reviews highlight the importance of omega-3/DHA in proper brain and eye development. Clinical studies are underway to evaluate the role of DHA in decreasing the onset of various neurological disorders.
Source-Omega is a manufacturing leader in the innovation and development of DHA omega-3 products that promote health and wellness for a better quality of life. The company produces customized, sustainable and vegetarian DHA/EPA omega-3 supplement products.
