Vegan omega-3 oil from the schizochytrium algae
Schizochytrium sp. are marine microalgae. Schizochytrium species are known to have large amounts of the two important fatty acids EPA (eicosapenaetic acid) And DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These omega-3 fatty acids are directly usable by the body and are 100 vegan.
What does DHA and EPA mean?
There are several different omega-3 fatty acids, but the majority of scientific research focuses on three: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapenaetic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA contains 18 carbon atoms, while EPA and DHA are considered “long-chain” (LC) omega-3 fatty acids, since EPA contains 20 carbon atoms and DHA 22.
The human body can only form carbon-carbon double bonds after the 9th carbon atom of the methyl end of a fatty acid. Therefore, ALA and linoleic acid are considered essential fatty acids, i.e. they must be absorbed through food. ALA can be converted into EPA and then DHA, but the conversion (which takes place mainly in the liver) is very limited with an efficiency of 15. Therefore, direct intake of EPA and DHA from foods and/or dietary supplements is the only practical way to increase the content of these fatty acids in the body.
