Are you getting enough beneficial essential fatty acids in your diet to keep up your cardiovascular, skin, cognitive, and perhaps even psychological health? If you're a vegan, or if you simply don't eat much oily fish because you don't like their texture or taste, chances are you're not (since they're the best source). If so, algae makes a great alternative.
You've known that omega-3 fatty acids have many benefits for maintaining good health in adults, and can be especially valuable for pregnant or nursing women to pass along to their kids, because they help support cognitive and other brain function, especially during development. But the most common rich source of omega-3 in supplements comes from fish, which you might not want to ingest, especially if you're a vegan.
This is an ideal alternative: it's plant-based, made from marine-based microalgae, yet has a comparable amount of EPA and DHA as many (non-concentrated) forms of fish oil supplements, to provide pure, safe, and effective amounts of both those essential fatty acids.
