SOURCE OIL® Forwards Freshest DHA Algae Omega-3 Ever Made

Source-Omega, the makers of SOURCE OIL® since 2012, forwarded they still make the freshest, most stable, best tasting, unblended algae omega-3 oil on the market. The product was perfected 6 years ago, they say, and it remains perfected because it is water extracted, winterized and a single ingredient oil. 

Previous company statements in press, since 2012, have been forwarded by Source-Omega and its Chief Scientist. These statements include comments that suggest algae oil is successful as an unmodified, natural food for nutrition, that algae omega-3 can substitute for medical fish oils, that retro-conversion of DHA is more efficient than taking high EPA levels since the body own ratio is about 80% DHA and only 5% EPA, and that their oil is made in controlled tanks and is untouched by seawater.

Dr Scott Doughman, the founder and architect of Source-Omega, says "Our Chromista oil (schizochytrium sp.) is uniquely water extracted to create an improved quality standard. We consistently have the lowest Total Oxidation number in an algae oil ever recorded. Our latest 3rd party certificate is available to view."

The lowest oxidation score means the taste and freshness are unmatched, Dr Doughman suggested. He further claimed that adding additional antioxidants post-extraction is "totally" unnecessary or can even "backfire" when in excess. He says this often turns into a formulation race to recover errors that get propagated in the name of so-called improvements. He suggested this is because each ingredient mix has different unknowns, contaminants and drawbacks, which can spiral into formulation fixes and lower quality and off tastes.

"Although new algae oil suppliers may enter the algae oil market, it appears superior taste and quality will remain exclusive to SOURCE OIL, the only 100% algae oil product on the market. My 10 years of experience with algae oil and my training as a NIH omega-3 lipid biochemist ensures that our standard is our promise. Source-Omega is advising not to formulate with pigments and fillers because it will lower the quality. Pure organic flavor oils such as lemon, orange and rosemary oils that are rich in terpenes have proven the best flavoring options."

Source-Omega Files Novel FDA Structure-Function Claim for DHA Accretion in Mitochondrial Cardiolipin

Source-Omega Files Novel FDA Structure-Function Claim for DHA Accretion in Mitochondrial Cardiolipin
Source-Omega ( today asserts the newest DHA omega-3 structure-function claim filed with the FDA to demonstrate how their exclusive product, SOURCE OIL® - Water Extracted Chromista Oil - best supports mitochondrial health and maintenance. SOURCE OIL is the first and only 50% DHA algae oil that is also the first and only water extracted algae oil offering the highest quality, purity and potency.

Based on emerging and qualified peer-reviewed research, independent study demonstrates that DHA is the only omega-3 used to make mitochondrial cardiolipin, but only when sufficient DHA intake levels are maintained over time.

Source-Omega's own publication reviews support 1200 mg DHA per day for 90 days as an average ideal intake level. Accretion is the act of building-up stores or reserves in the form of higher DHA levels over time, yet accretion is naturally limited to an average ideal level of about 8% total omega-3 membrane composition, thus posing no risk of overdose or side effects. Most people persist at about 4% total omega-3 membrane levels and have very little, if any, DHA in their mitochondrial cardiolipin.

Dr Scott Doughman, PhD, the Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Source-Omega said, "The summary of 16 clinical studies using algae DHA proves tissue accretion therapy is effective and supports longevity. By using an average 1200mg DHA per day, within the range of 700 mg DHA to 1500 mg DHA per day, a person will double total omega-3s in their red blood cells in 90 days and in all cells within 12 months. But now we observe studies with similar intake levels that support DHA accretion in mitochondrial cardiolipin within the same time periods."

What is mitochondrial cardiolipin? Cardiolipin is a lipid complex that can only be made from certain fatty acids. Cardiolipin is a novel phospholipid made only in the mitochondria, which are the sole power factories for our body and cells.

Cardiolipin functions as a proton trap giving ATP synthase the juice needed to enhance electron transfer and reduce electron leakage. Cardiolipin also participates in a structural scaffold essential for the distinctive shape of mitochondrial cristae.

DHA is the only omega-3 that can be used to make this novel lipid, but only when DHA is consistently available in the diet at high enough levels. DHA is thought to also have electroconductive properties adding to its many uses in the human body, brain, eyes and heart.

"We claim SOURCE OIL DHA uses for providing the definitive omega-3 used by the mitochondria to form cardiolipin," said Dr Doughman

About Structure-Function Claims
What is a permitted structure-function statement? The FDA ( states that "Dietary supplement labels or labeling may bear statements that describe the role of a nutrient or dietary ingredient intended to affect the structure or function in humans or that characterize the documented mechanism by which a nutrient or dietary ingredient acts to maintain such structure or function, provided that such statements are not disease claims."

Claims and general substantiations for the DHA brand SOURCE OIL are that it is an ingredient used in consumer finished products. All labels and labeling associated with SOURCE OIL contains the following statement: This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The Source-Omega company has previously defined uses for DHA-rich algae oil in the the structure-function and formation of very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) in the liver as the first act of DHA in the body, before it is deposited into cell membranes phospholipids and the mitochondria.

Their earlier work on VLDL biology demonstrated how precious DHA is in the liver, describing how the liver uses DHA selectively to move dietary fat and to transport it efficiently. The mechanisms described imply that DHA functions directly in maintaining normal plasma triglycerides levels and normal fatty liver levels.

About Source-Omega
Source-Omega, LLC is the leading Chromista algae oil innovations company since 2007 serving the public health using a unique water extraction process, lowering prices and improving quality. Preformed DHA has also been defined in Source-Omega's publications to be safe and effective for adults at 1200 mg DHA/day. The company defined 1200 mg DHA/day as a best practice for adults and showed how the liver can rapidly make EPA from DHA in just the right amounts (Doughman et al., 2013).

Chromista Algae Oil Recognized Best CBD Oil Emulsifier

Source-Omega discloses astounding commercial R&D results with pure Chromista water extracted algae oil. With first and only claims such as the first water extracted algae oil, the first single ingredient 100% algae oil (Schizochytrium sp.), the first 50% DHA oil standard, Source-Omega scientists have developed the first Chromista oil DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) plus CBD (cannabidiol) product, launched in California in early March 2018.

"Demand driven R&D proved to us that this oil was the best emulsifier of CBD oil preparations, from raw CBD oil to pure CBD isolate, achieving a 33% CBD concentrate at room temperature and a 50% CBD concentrate at only 45 degrees Celcius as stable, clear, fully emulsified solutions. The length and unsaturation of the lipids in our oil may be the most powerful natural oil emulsifier of CBD powders and pastes," said Scott Doughman, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, CEO and Founder of Source-Omega, LLC.

Doughman said recent events foretell of the "the word getting out" and "boom demand" for the Chromista oil DHA. He disclosed 3rd party product developers are reaching the same astonishing conclusions about CBD emulsification with the DHA oil, stating that solid CBD decarboxylated oil concentrates in 1 gram "chunks" will dissolve, i.e. fully emulsify, into the Chromista oil simply by sitting overnight without heating, sonicating or mixing.

The premium DHA oil contains an average chain-length of 20 carbons, whereas olive oil's average chain-length is about 18 carbons, coconut oil's average is about 16 carbons and medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil's average is about 10 carbons.

DHA in fish oil and krill oil comes from algae oil in the food chain. DHA is commonly used in food supplements because DHA is the most abundant omega-3 in the human body, brain and organs by ten-fold, with a maximum ratio of 97% DHA in the brain.

Recent interest in DHA has focused on two new endogenous wellness pathways; a) DHA-cardiolipin structure and function in the mitochondria, as DHA is the only omega-3 used by mitochondrial cardiolipin and only when DHA is sufficiently and consistently present in the diet, and b) DHA supplementation also appears to increase Synaptamide production in the brain.

In neurons, DHA can be directly converted into Synaptamide (Docosahexaenoylethanolamide), a structural analog of the endogenous cannabinoid receptor ligand anandamide, made from Arachidonic Acid. Synaptamide is synthesized from DHA in the brain, although it binds weakly to cannabinoid receptors, it independently stimulates growth, synaptogenesis and synaptic activity in developing hippocampal neurons at nano-molar concentrations. The term Synaptamide was coined to describe its activity and molecular similarity to anandamide.
