NC Company Partnering with South Africa Company to Offer Medical Food Product Internationally November, 2010

Source-Omega licenses Solal Technologies of Johannesburg, South Africa, to offer novel Vegetarian Omega-3 (SM) product with DHA and EPA from sustainable algae oil source.

NC Company Partnering with South Africa Company to Offer Medical Food Product Internationally
Chapel Hill, NC, November 23, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Source-Omega, LLC is now offering private labeling of its vegetarian algae oil in international markets.

The company has licensed Solal Technologies of Johannesburg, South Africa, to offer Vegetarian Omega-3 (SM).

“Solal is an ideal business partner for Source-Omega,” said Dr. Scott Doughman, president and founder of Source-Omega. “Both companies have the same goal, offering a product that fills an important need not met with modern diets and lifestyle.”

The oil has been licensed for sale in the South African pharmaceutical market under a “medical food” label licensed to Solal under the Pure One™ brand.

“Medical food” is a relatively new category established in the 1988 amendments to the Orphan Drug Act. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires that “medical foods” contain only ingredients classified as Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). Algae oil omega-3, which is entirely plant-based, meets this standard, however the Pure One™ label in the U.S. and South Africa are designated Dietary Supplements and are not a drug.

Solal will offer Vegetarian Omega-3 in pharmacies, behind the counter, as recommended by physicians for management of a low omega-3 index and high triglyceride levels. It will also be offered as an anti-aging non-prescription supplement. Vegetarian Omega-3 will be available directly to patients, through retail pharmacies, physicians and health stores based in South Africa.

“We are pleased to have this relationship with Source-Omega to offer a product that is so important to maintaining health,” said Colin Levin, a vegetarian and a director of Solal. “This will be a win-win-win, for Solal, Source-Omega, and, most importantly, for our patients and customers.”

Source-Omega is also working on expanding its markets through other private labeling arrangements outside the United States.

The basis of the oil is Source-Omega’s patent-pending formula of DHA and EPA for cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive health management, offered in supplements and medical food. Pure One™ offers optimized omega-3 dosages and clinically proven triglyceride lowering benefits with documented results.

Certain omega-3 dosages have been proven effective for management of plasma lipids. As a medical food, it can fulfill the omega-3 requirements associated with DHA and EPA deficiencies in vegetarians, people who cannot eat fish, and those with special dietary needs not met by omega-3 seed sources such as flax oil. Vegetarian Omega-3(SM) is offered in a soft carrageenan capsule.

About Solal Technologies (Pty) Ltd: Located in Johannesburg, Solal Technologies works and supplies online to physicians, pharmacies and other outlets based in South Africa. Other divisions of Solal include The Compounding Pharmacy of South Africa, an Integrative Medical Center and a Health Intelligence magazine covering the science of health.

About Source-Omega, LLC: Located in Chapel Hill North Carolina, founded in 2007, Source-Omega developed the Pure One™ Formula out of the published academic work and innovations of Scott Doughman, Ph.D., Lipid Biochemist and a former National Institutes of Health funded omega-3 researcher, previously also an American Heart Association fellow with over 12 years of lipid research experience. Since 2007, the company has rapidly grown with a focus on high triglycerides and their Omega-3 DHA Therapy™ for results oriented omega-3 dosages. The product stability, ecological sustainability, vegan and Kosher registrations and research behind Pure One™, each lend qualifications that provide value added advantages. The Pure One™ Brand and Formula are available for licensing from Source-Omega, LLC under their field of use and US patent application number 12/727,006 filed with the US Trademark and Patent Office, March 18th, 2010.

Source-Omega Reviews DHA Retroconversion Metabolic Dosing Using Algae Oil Omega-3s as a Fish Oil Substitute November, 2010

"What all the human omega-3 red blood cell data independently points out is that DHA is always 3 to 8 fold more abundant than EPA in human blood and tissues, even after prolonged intake of high doses of omega-3s predominantly as EPA," says company scientist.

Source-Omega Reviews DHA Retroconversion Metabolic Dosing Using Algae Oil Omega-3s as a Fish Oil Substitute
Chapel Hill, NC, November 10, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Today, Source-Omega revealed knowledge gained from their review of the omega-3 literature and published research. “What all the human omega-3 Red Blood Cell data independently point out is that DHA is always 3 to 8 fold more abundant than EPA in human blood and tissues, even after prolonged intake of high doses of omega-3s predominantly as EPA," says Scott Doughman, PhD., Chief Scientist at Source-Omega.

Source-Omega revealed their discussion, forwarding that composition studies in 1978 proved DHA is naturally the most abundant omega-3 form in the human body and blood in comparison to EPA levels in untreated individuals (Sanders et al., 1978). In 1986, a review by Herold and Kinsella of human volunteers treated with fish oil omega-3s revealed higher DHA fatty acid composition in red blood cells compared to EPA, despite high EPA intake (Herold and Kinsella, 1986).

Fish oils have been an abundant source of EPA, so fewer studies may have taken into consideration that DHA is the most abundant omega-3 long chain fatty acid because EPA was the main omega-3 given as a fish oil treatment.

When Conquer and Holub published on algae oil DHA treatment of human subjects in 1996, a detailed double-blind randomized placebo controlled study, the authors found blood omega-3 parameters consistent with humans taking high dosages of fish oil (Conquer and Holub, 1996). The 1996 study showed RBC increases in both DHA and EPA through accretion of DHA and retroconversion of DHA. Other metabolism studies have shown DHA is also a template that will provide all the C22, C20, and C18 omega-3s needed in the body through retroconversion, say Source-Omega scientists.

DHA delivers saturation levels of omega-3s to RBC membranes when the DHA dosage for adult clinical use begins with 1.0 g to 1.2 g DHA per day, which company results, or previous published studies show can provide saturation levels of omega-3s within 90 days (Arterburn et al., 2008).

The scientific literature shows high-dose DHA derived from microalgae lowers hypertriglyceridemia after 90 days of treatment, by up to 26 percent with at least 1 g DHA daily (reviewed by Ryan et al., 2009). With a safe, effective dosage range for any adult, the GRAS safety registration of algae oil and the dosage range have been positively ruled-upon, as such, by several international regulatory bodies.

"The summary of these historical studies together suggest 'directional omega-3 metabolism', where fish oil is 'uphill' and algae oil is 'downhill'. EPA intake leads to multistep synthesis to DHA with fish oil. DHA intake leads to a single step retroconversion to EPA with algae oil. The body knows how to balance its final levels from each direction, but 'downhill' appears more efficient at high omega-3 doses," said Doughman.

Each method then flows towards a somewhat pre-defined homeostatic balance of cellular and tissue specific omega-3 compositions, the data suggest.

Since the DHA retroconvertion dosing strategy is the opposite of fish oil, Source-Omega's patent pending claims are on the dosage use and method of 1200 mg DHA + 40 mg EPA per day as metabolically ideal for certain health claims and postprandial triglyceride lowering benefits [References Available upon request from Source-Omega].

European Algae Oil Omega-3 Access Increases with Source-Omega’s Products and Services July, 2010

Source-Omega's Pure One™ brand moves towards private label offering and licensing in a growing market with green economic outlook. Estimated at $400M, the total European omega-3 market is now doubling every 10 years.

Chapel Hill, NC, July 22, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Source-Omega's Pure One™ branded products move towards international private label deals, offering contracts, access and licensing to a growing global omega-3 market with growing global green economic outlooks.

"In Europe there is a strong compliance record for our algae oil source," said Scott Doughman, PhD, President of Source-Omega, LLC maker of the Pure One™ omega-3 algae oil brand.

Evidence-based omega-3 fatty acid benefits from eicosapentaenoic acid/docosahexaenoic acid (EPA/DHA) gives ongoing usage credibility for polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) as an adjunct to diet for condition specific uses. EPA and DHA are the "good fats" considered almost essential to combat the effects of the modern diet. With 50% global urban populations carrying excess weight plus heightened consumer awareness regarding high dose omega-3 benefits, connections made between ‘need’ and ‘use’ is answered, yet the question remains as to what sources and dosing strategies are best for each application.

"With our standardized dosing program, our algae oil is disclosed for use in our patent pending accretion therapy to end omega-3 deficiency in a person in three months, pure and simple," said Doughman, who claims Pure One™ algae oil is balanced to match the body’s omega-3 needs.

Consumers hope to find solutions to fish sustainability and seawater pollution issues. Many are putting algae oil omega-3s squarely in the scope of comparison to fish oil. While algae oil dietary supplements makers still seek greater distribution, new analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.food.frost.com), titled Strategic Analysis of the European Marine and Algae Oil Omega-3 Ingredients Market, finds that algae oil is clearly part of the total omega-3 benefits market.

Algae oil made in the U.S. is good on the topics of shelf-placement, regulatory and compliance topics. For more information, for example, GOED and Purdue University in the U.S. established the Omega-3 Learning Consortium for Health and Medicine to provide credible information about omega-3 fatty acids.

With many algae oil omega-3 distribution challenges still to overcome, positive media coverage seems to abound around the benefits for ageing populations facing chronic illness such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. With the topic of medical food emerging, how to classify omega-3s is not yet understood by doctors or consumers. Consumers are still rapidly trying to learn on their own to differentiate between what they hear and read and what the doctor recommends.

Manufacturers of algae oil supplements recognize the link between consumer awareness and product marketability for branding the active ingredients into functional foods, supplements, and medical foods. The European Parliament has approved nutrition claims for omega-3s to apparently encourage greater daily doses and omega-3 usage across Europe.

Source-Omega’s Pure One Untouched by Seawater Pollution, Not Now, Not Ever July, 2010

For years, the lack of fish odor or reflux taste has led many people to microalgae oil instead of fish oil as a source for omega-3s. Another feature of microalgae oil is now more important than ever — it is not touched by any ocean, now or ever.

Chapel Hill, NC, July 07, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Pure-One™, manufactured by North Carolina-based Source-Omega, is actually the same DHA-rich algae oil eaten by ocean fish. But instead of being distilled from fish oil, it is produced in enclosed culture systems, on land, without any pollution. It is the only plant-based vegan source of both EPA and DHA omega-3 made in the USA.

Fish oil supplements are considered safe only after being decontaminated. “No fish are involved in the production of Pure-One,” said Scott Doughman, Ph.D., president and chief scientist at Source Omega. “There is no seawater contact, no pollution, no impurities in the growing process.”

This purity is especially valuable now. The massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico not only adds petroleum to the sea water, but the chemical dispersants used to fight oil spills may cause equal contamination. These concerns are now added to long-standing concern about mercury pollution, which are as critical as ever.

A study published in June 2010 in Nature Geoscience demonstrates that methyl-mercury pollution lasts longer in oceans than in fresh water because of the sea salt. Mercury interferes with the brain and nervous system. The impact of chemicals from the oil spill is not yet known.

These concerns are absent from Pure One™. Because Pure One™ comes straight from algae rather than from fish, said Dr. Doughman, it meets the standard for infant formula. It is free of allergens, hexane, dye, and all toxins. Even kosher certification will be offered for Pure One™ in the near future, he said.

“This makes the oil good for those with sensitive digestion, diabetics, and the very young and the very old,” he said.

Pure-One™ is safe and effective, stable and sustainable. No species of fish are depleted in its production. Because it comes from the same source, Pure One™ algae oil has the same omega-3s as fish oil, but with a ratio that matches the composition of the human body. Research shows that it has positive effects on both heart and brain health, without the risk.

Source-Omega is located near the Research Triangle Park and was founded in 2007 for specializing in the manufacturing, branding, and globalization of algae oil nutritional products as an exclusive distributor of the brand name Pure One™, Next Generation Plant Based Omega-3™ for their Omega-3 DHA Therapy™, for clinics offering triglyceride lowering plasma lipids management programs and for pregnancy, nursing and family care.

Pure One™ Omega-3 Registered with the Vegan Society May, 2010

Pure One™ DHA supplement manufacturer today announced a license from the Vegan Society for trademark use in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and Australia. The Vegan logo adds to Pure One’s quality offering for vegetarian consumers and vegan retailers, in addition to the benefits of being sourced and Made in the USA and recognized good for pregnant-nursing mothers and infants.

Chapel Hill, NC, May 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Could Pure One™ be the “4G” of omega-3s? Pure One™ Next Generation Plant Based Omega-3™ may qualify as a brilliant leap forward in omega-3s. Pure One™ is DHA-rich oil from a pure cultured algal source. The oil has significant scientific research backing, a patent pending metabolic ratio of DHA and EPA for the same omega-3s that are found in fish oils, but without the fish. Pure One™ is from one source, not a mixture, and is a pure sustainable product made in a breakthrough vegan softgel, also from natural algae sources. The product is free of animal products, GMO’s, wheat & gluten, soy, hexane, fragrance, flavorings, dyes, toxins, allergens, pollutants and heavy metals. See www.PureOne-DHA.com for product information.

“Our research and development brought to market the first and only metabolic ratio of DHA and EPA omega-3s. We are educating consumers that Pure One™ is proven to replace fish oil, dose for dose, for the heart and brain, eliminating the need for the world to harvest fish for oil,” said Dr Scott Doughman, the formulating scientist and President of Source-Omega, the maker of Pure One™.

“Most vegetarian algae oil products on the market are still placed in animal capsules. The animal capsules have peroxides which shortens omega-3 shelf life. Unlike others, Pure One™ uses only high grade algae oil and capsules. You get what you pay for with omega-3s. I think we have the top product on the market right now, at one of the most affordable prices,” said Doughman.

The 100% plant based ingredients registered with the Vegan Society designates quality standards held by only few select DHA products worldwide. Pure One™ oil is unblemished by the current fish industry problems such as menhaden overfishing and toxic oil spills.

Pure One™ is one product, not a fish oil blend. It starts pure and ends pure. Fish oil cannot claim that and must be decontaminated for human consumption. The source where fish oil omega-3s come from in the food chain is now grown sustainable and scalable away from the sea free of pollution and free of harm to fish, krill, seals and penguins.

Microalgae oil (algae oil) is among the richest marine omega-3 sources. With 3-times the DHA concentration versus fish oil, Pure One’s website suggests this means half the numbers of capsules are required per day. Also, flax oil does not provide the marine omega-3s needed by the body for healthy cardiovascular and cognitive function. Most omega-3 benefits are associated with fish and fish oil, but fish are not the only food sources rich in marine fatty acids. Some also fear fish oil is not the safest solution.

“Since 1997, FDA experts have granted our omega-3 oil and our grower with a Generally Regarded As Safe designation for algae oil food supplements. We use only conventional enclosed growing techniques without any genetic modification,” said Dr Pernilla Karlsson, PhD, a Pure One™ Spokesperson, Author, Toxicologist, Nutritionist, and President of Veganlife in Europe.

Due to the metabolic disadvantages of ALA, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) rich plant sources, vegetarian flax oil is not as effective as algal omega-3 supplements, studies show. While foods and oils like flax oil, walnuts and mustard seeds are good sources of vegetarian omega 3s, algae oil supplements offer a higher standard of benefits, allowing everyone access to full omega 3 benefits for healthier lifestyles, regardless of culinary affiliations.

“Even if one is not a vegetarian or vegan, Pure One™ gives the maximum benefit of omega 3s because the proper balance of DHA and EPA make it a superior source,” said Dr Alex McDonald, M.D., a Pro-athlete and Doctor taking Pure One™ while training for the Iron-Man™ to achieve a peak omega-3 index. Pure One™ sponsors McDonald.

Pure One™ DHA Maker Brings a Heart to Algae Oil, Calls on India’s Distributors to Learn More About New Vegetarian Source of Omega-3s March, 2010

The export of algae oil omega-3s is a contribution that the United States of America can make to the world. “It is not the algae oil for fuel ideas being spun around, it is the 100's of millions of dollars annual world market for algae oil foods and nutraceuticals, something distributors in India should know more about,” says Dr. Scott Doughman, founder of Source-Omega in the US.

Bangalore, India, March 31, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Source-Omega company announced today their products are available to the world with an eye on India. The company is providing their US patent pending “metabolic ratio” of DHA and EPA omega-3 products from algae oil.

There are at least two companies exporting algae oil from the US. One is Source-Omega™, the makers of Pure One™ supplements containing Golden Pure Algae Oil™.

“We bring a heart to algae oil. We want to go where there is the greatest need. India is an important partner country where half of its adult population has high cholesterol and a third have high triglycerides. Source-Omega’s products and co-therapies are vegetarian replacements for fish oil, capsule for capsule,” says Dr Doughman, Ph.D., Biochemist and Lipidologist.

Recent clinical reviews indicate algae oil gives the same or better results as fish oil, without the fish. Bolohealth.com reported on India’s cholesterol issue. Dr. Doughman is also a Visiting Faculty at Indian Universities working on topics “Serving Diabetes.”

“My three years of market research in India combined with what we believe is a tremendous public health need suggests we can serve India as a true and faithful partner. Over the past 10 years I have been visiting some of India’s greatest academic and clinical institutions. The nutritional research I started in the US has moved over to India. The work was of interest because the need and application are merged in one algae oil solution for all vegetarian Hindu’s and for all people. India has the largest vegetarian population in the world. India also has the fastest growing number of new diabetic patients and new heart disease patients. Our product need distribution in India. We call upon distributors in India to contact us.”

The company points out the role Source-Omega plays in serving DHA-rich algae oil to the world is easy to remember. The company’s position is that “D” is for Diabetes, “H” is for Heart Disease and “A” is for Alzheimer’s, DHA. They provide ample certificates and references for clinicians and scientists requesting more information.

Pure One™ Algae Oil Champion Endorsement: Source-Omega Teams-Up with the Iron-Doc™ March, 2010

The Iron-Doc™ is a “well oiled machine” and Pure One™ algae oil omega-3s may have something to do with that. The Iron-Doc™ is training for competitions held around the world. Pure One™ producer Source-Omega sponsors the Iron-Doc™ to help give him a pure, sustainable advantage.

Chapel Hill, NC, March 29, 2010 --(PR.com)-- What’s faster than the Iron-Doc™? Maybe the Iron-Doc™ after 3-months of taking the new omega-3 algae oil, Pure One™ (patent pending). Pure One’s bottle says “Balanced to match your body’s omega-3 needs.”

For a triathlete, algae oil omega-3s provide a powerful oil supplement loved by the Doctor himself. He’s Pro-Athlete, Dr. Alex McDonald, M.D., Timex™ Multisport Team, Iron-Man™ Triathlon Champion and Medical Doctor. He’s a Doctor and the Iron-Doc™, in one person. His insight into fitness gives Pure One™ scientists feedback so that other athletes or fitness beginners can get the omega-3 benefits of the Pure One algae oil also.

“Last week I rode 378 miles, ran 48 miles and swam 11 miles! Pure One helps decrease inflammation in an athlete's body to let them train harder, faster and stronger, more consistently,” said the Iron-Doc™.

The Iron-Doc™ gets his omega-3s from algae oil for both DHA and EPA in an exclusive “metabolic ratio” only available from Pure One™. Getting more omega-3s is considered one of the best first steps to getting healthy. Dr McDonald’s omega-3 choice is Pure One™ algae oil, not fish oil.

Could algae oil be the best new source of omega-3 for athletes in all three sports, swimming, biking and running? Pure One™ scientists are hoping to find out more. “As for dosing, it is going well, 2 Pure One™ every morning and 2 after the last workout of the day. My training has been going very well. I had my first 110 mile bike ride of the season yesterday. It helps keep my body moving at peak performance.” – The Iron-Doc™ in a Pure One™ field report.

Now you can get algae oil to replace fish oil, dose for dose, without the fish smell or taste, without even the fish. The Pure One™ label talks about the actual plant based origins of all omega-3s. It says Pure One™ oil comes from the source, from algae oil, from where fish get their own “good” fats from, known as the omega-3s DHA and EPA, abundant in Pure One™.

Source-Omega Files for Patent Protections in the US for Algae Oil “Metabolic Ratio” and Uses for Serving Diabetes March, 2010

Source-Omega company founder Scott Doughman, Ph.D., announced this week filing of their first non-provisional US patent application titled "Product and Use of Omega-3s Matching Human Tissue Ratios for Treatment of Inflammatory and Other Conditions."

Chapel Hill, NC, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Source-Omega is engaged in international partnerships and discovery opportunities. The company discloses exclusive product DHA/EPA ratios and embodiments with high-potential for fast-track clinical uses.

The company references studies that provide reasons why algae oil has a ratio of omega-3s that could be better for improving pre-diabetes and diabetes health by not one, but two, separate anti-inflammatory pathways. One is about the benefits of treating with DHA-rich algae oil for improving insulin function. The other indicates a high DHA ratio is an advantage for treating postprandial triglycerides by mechanisms not yet known.

Treatment of a person is disclosed to be by using accretion therapy or Omega-3 DHA Therapy™ (patent pending) using algae oil omega-3s, not fish oil. Source-Omega developed their methods over several years.

A high DHA to EPA ratio appears to better match certain tissues and cell membrane levels. "Algae oil may provide an improved treatment option" says Dr. Scott Doughman, Source-Omega President and Chief Scientist, Ph.D. Biochemist and Lipidologist. He reports "The stage is set for new value added product platforms. Source-Omega is a global product development company in algae oil with a branded product picking up demand in international markets."

The company's product was the first in-country algae oil supplement in Sweden, also with a Swedish language label. Dr Doughman says their marketing and ratio differentiation in the US and abroad gives added support to their Omega-3 DHA Therapy™, now under US application number 12/727,006 with the US Trademark and Patent Office, submitted March 18th, 2010.

“Single capsule specifications and dose ratios are keys to success in our manufacturing model. Research and development efforts are focused on standardizing protocols.” says Dr. Doughman, a former NIH fellow who studied the benefits of omega-3s in metabolic diseases and cancer.

Dr. Pernilla Karlsson, Ph.D., Nutritionist and Toxicologist, a collaborating partner in Europe, says “Natural products are increasingly sought after these days. I believe Source-Omega’s standards are impeccable and their customer service attitude is fresh and helpful. Our partnership has been extremely successful.”

DHA/EPA algae oil ratio's used by other companies in the US and the EU do not overlap with Source-Omega's positions. The Source-Omega product pipeline looks strong. The company claims itself the first champion of algae EPA marketing in the USA. Algae oil products in the US did not disclose EPA until first described in 2008 with the product release of Pure One™ two years ago.

Intellectual property, innovations and technical advances the company has contributed in recent years have yielded positive growth, expert leadership, branding value and premium product positioning for international markets.

Pure One Prenatal Omega-3 Algae Oil Launched in Europe: Source-Omega Announces www.Pure-One.eu March, 2010

Source-Omega announced today Veganlife in Sweden, launched Pure One™ distribution online into Europe through www.pure-one.eu for direct sales and wholesales. Pure One™ algae oil is a safe omega-3 DHA and EPA source for pregnant women and nursing mothers. Veganlife offers the European Union an improved, sustainable and 100% vegan plant-based alternative to fish oil for the same omega-3s to better serve the growing prenatal DHA market.

Chapel Hill, NC, March 04, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Purity matters to pregnant mothers and nursing mothers. Pure One™ (www.pure-one.eu) is guaranteed free of all detectable contaminants, allergens, soy, gluten, heavy metals such as mercury and undesirable organic chemicals including those frequently found in ocean-derived fish. In fact, algae oil is widely considered more ideal than fish or fish oil for pregnant and nursing mothers for obtaining DHA omega-3. DHA is the only omega-3 fatty acid proven to support a healthy brain and eyes through every stage of development. Studies have shown DHA supports healthy cognitive function.

DHA omega-3 deficiencies may need to be addressed more than ever in the journey towards parenthood, much like folic acid was needed years ago. Many pregnant and nursing women in Europe have omega-3 nutritional deficiencies. Veganlife suggests Pure One™ will help mothers build up the developing baby’s health from inside out, from within the womb and through breast milk rich in DHA and EPA as the main omega-3 essential fatty acids needed by newborn infants.

Pure One™ is optimized to deliver omega-3 ratios similar to those found in human breast milk. Pure One™ provides the first Optimized Omega-3™ balanced to match our body’s omega-3 needs.

Dr. Pernilla Karlsson, Ph.D. Toxicologist and Nutritionist, President of Veganlife in Stockholm says, “Pure One™ makes life easier knowing everything needed is contained in one pure product, something expecting mothers can appreciate. Plus, the source of omega-3s in fish is actually algae oils. As a Nutritionist, I recommend Pure One™ through all stages of pregnancy with continued use into nursing.”

Pure One™ provides one of the safest known omega-3 oils for pregnant women and infants. Pure One™ products are made using only quality controlled processes and a certified microalgae strain (Schizochytrium sp.). The oil is approved by the European Commission as a Novel Food. Backed by dozens of published research papers, the oil is also proven safe when taken by adults in food supplements up to 1.5 grams DHA per day. The oil has been used by people for over two decades without incident.

Pure One™ is a good prenatal product containing life’sDHA™ (a trademark of Martek Biosciences Corporation), a patented oil used in infant formulas.

North Carolina's Brain Health is at Risk, Source-Omega Reports January, 2010

Source-Omega's Founder reports North Carolina’s brain health is at risk, according to the life'sDHA Index of Brain Health. The first-of-its-kind index evaluated the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on 21 brain health indicators in the areas of diet, physical health, mental health and social well-being. Source-Omega produces a patent pending life'sDHA supplement product.

Chapel Hill, NC, January 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- North Carolina is 32nd out of 50 states, scoring a failing grade. But it could be worse as the state is ranked in the top 10 for religious/spiritual health, considered an important factor in combating end of life morbidity. Source-Omega's product Pure One(TM) DHA+EPA is listed on the life'sDHA(TM) website [http://www.lifesDHA.com].

Brain health may depend on where you live. If you live in the New England states or the District of Columbia, you could consider yourself among the healthiest brains in America, from the state-by-state measure of the nation's brain health. Pure One is available in all states with online access to product information that can help serve the needs of consumers and doctors across the country.

The Index indicates that healthier brains may result from making smarter nutritional choices, by being less overweight, by avoiding smoking, by actively playing brain games, by reading more, by being more social and by consuming higher amounts of DHA omega-3, the good fat for maintaining your brain health throughout life, which research has shown may additionally help protect against dementia later in life.

DHA omega-3 is the hardest omega-3 fat to get in the diet, yet DHA-fortified foods, DHA algae oil supplements and certain fish, including salmon and trout have this good fat. If you don't eat fish, you can find DHA in fortified foods, beverages and supplements that have a pure algae-based source - algae is the original source for how fish get their DHA in the first place.

“DHA omega-3 is the only good fat known to promote and sustain brain health throughout life," says Scott Doughman, Ph.D. Lipidologist "Since the diet alone is not enough and the right fish are polluted and overfished, DHA algae oil supplements are considered the best and most sustainable way for women in particular to get their minimum recommended 300 mg DHA daily.”

DHA is the only omega-3 shown to provide brain, eye and heart health benefits. The World Health Organization recommends a minimum intake of 220 mg of DHA per day for healthy adults, but research shows that the average U.S. consumer takes in less than 100 mg of DHA per day, suggesting widespread deficiencies.
