Omega 3 Benefits
Never wonder what’s going in your body. Our end-to-end traceable and transparent process gives you the confidence that you’re taking the best possible care of your body without compromising your values.
Why You Should Take an Omega 3 Supplement
Our Omega 3 Supplement ends that compromise by providing you with the best of both worlds. With each serving, you’ll get 450mg EPA and DHA in a single, sustainable, and fish-free source. And with no carrageenan, fillers, or other contaminants, it’s a choice everyone will feel great about.
With a mountain of scientific research backing their benefits, Omega 3s are one of the most important nutrients we can supplement - especially for Vegans and Vegetarians. However, most people don't get enough Omega 3s naturally from a balanced diet. And because they primarily come from fish, this is especially true for Vegans and Vegetarians. We’re often forced to choose between compromising on our values and receiving all of the many health benefits.
Health Benefits of Omega-3 EPA and DHA
Research shows Omega 3 plays a vital role in cardiovascular, brain, and eye health. There’s also a growing body of science highlighting some lesser-known benefits such as immune support, sports performance, quality of sleep, and positive mood.*
Long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids like DHA support heart health, joint function, eye / macular wellness, joint mobility, skin smoothness, muscle recovery, and healthy brain function including cognitive ability, focus, and mood.*
In addition to prenatal supplements, DHA is an essential nutrient for pregnant women looking to nurture their baby’s healthy brain and eye development.*
Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Calgee’s Omega 3 Supplement provides 450 gram(s) of EPA and DHA.
