Algae Oil. The Slimy Wonder
When you think of algae, you probably think of the slimy green film often seen on ponds or lakes. They’re so much more than that. It’s no exaggeration to say that algae are the most important organisms on Earth. For example, take a breath, thank the algae for 50% of the air you’re breathing. More than all the other plants combined. All that life-giving oxygen has been produced by algae harvesting light energy from the sun. Using the sun’s light to convert carbon dioxide, in the same way we need to eat food. Simply said, no sunlight, no algae, no oxygen, no us.
Now this magnificent marine organism is being cultivated sustainably in laboratories, for its unique oil, which is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. They provide essential fats that your body can’t produce itself and can’t do without. To delve a little deeper, these essential fats include EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). It may sound a little complicated, but it’s actually very important, because they play a critical and structural role in the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin and retina.
Omega-3. Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
It’s clear that omega-3 is essential for the human body. There is a weight of scientific evidence to suggest that omega-3 has many major health benefits too. Like reducing blood pressure and the risk of heart diseases. And, according to scientific tests, helping to control ailments like arthritis and asthma. Even eye health seems to be improved. In scientific studies it has been observed that taking omega-3 supplements helps with eye fatigue, especially from spending too much time looking at computer screens.
Mental health is another area where omega-3 seems to make a significant difference. Analysis of 150,000 people found that those who ate fish (filled with omega-3) had a lower risk of depression. That’s another thing worth thinking about: fish. Most people who know about omega-3 choose to eat more fish, like salmon. However, ask yourself this question: where does the salmon or any other fish get their omega-3? Exactly, from eating algae. In other words, when you take algae omega-3 supplements, you’re getting it from the source!
The advantages of omega-3 from algae oil are numerous. To begin with, it’s sustainable and doesn’t contribute to overfishing. Because the algae is grown in controlled laboratory conditions, it’s free of toxins present in many fish and fish oils from the sea. There’s also less risk of digestive issues due to its neutral taste, compared to the outspoken flavor of many fish. Lastly, and certainly not least, algae oil is perfect for a vegetarian or even vegan diet.
Algae oil is not only the perfect healthcare ingredient, it’s also the perfect haircare ingredient. However, instead of omega-3, it’s omega-9 that protects the hair fiber from breakage, repairs split ends, adds shine and improves the condition. Further applications for algae oil, this new wonder ingredient, include body lotions, creams, gels, body washes, facial care products and styling products.
