GreenOMEGA 3 is ideal for vegans and vegetarians who want an Omega 3 supplement with all of the benefits of fish oil, but without the fish and the related sustainability issue of using a fish source.
While most people know fish are a rich source of Omega 3 (DHA and EPA), many don’t know that the fish actual get these essential fatty acids from the marine microalgae they eat in their natural environment.
So GreenOMEGA 3 has by-passed the fish and gone straight to the source to get these essential Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA from the very same organic marine microalgae (Schizochytrium sp.) the fish get them from.
The benefits of a diet rich in Omega 3 (DHA and EPA) are well known to include heart, brain and eye health.
Help save our precious Oceans …
Over 700,000 tonnes* of fish are now taken annually from our oceans for fish oil with over 21%* of that going into fish oil supplements. If this continues, experts say we will soon lose many fish species and marine ecosystems in just one generation. That’s bad news for the marine environment, but now there is some good news …
We don’t need to kill fish for Omega 3 essential fatty acids!
Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are essential for humans – this means our bodies don’t make them – we have to get them from the food we eat. We can get Omega3 from eating fish but not easily in the quantities we need, hence the need for fish oil supplements.
But now there is no need to harvest the fish for their oil because we can get our DHA and EPA from the same marine microalgae the fish do.
GreenOMEGA 3 from renewable algal source is a vegan alternative to fish oil for essential DHA and EPA. Algal derived oils are 100% clean, free from heavy metal like mercury and arsenic and do not contribute to the destruction of our ravaged oceans.
Choose GreenOMEGA 3 as your daily source of DHA and EPA … and save the fish!

GreenOMEGA 3 is a rich vegan source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) derived from the clean, green marine microalgae.
Each vegan capsule contains 850mg of Life'sOMEGA3™ marine microalgae oil delivering 255mg DHA and 127mg EPA.
GreenOMEGA 3 is a safe and effective way to get DHA and EPA every day, without the need for fish oil.
Fish oil offers a number of proven benefits to health, but fish oil does not suit Vegetarian and Vegans and those who care about the world’s fish population being managed for long term sustainability.
GreenOMEGA 3 satisfies those who want all the DHA and EPA essential fatty acid benefits, but from a vegetarian source.
In fact, fish obtain their DHA and EPA from consuming marine microalgae, so by going straight to the source consumers can get these healthy fatty acids from the same natural food-source that fish do.
Marine microalgae oil has recently emerged as an efficient and environmentally friendly source of DHA and EPA and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) at doses up to 2 g/day as a dietary supplement. Microalgae oil contains a larger proportion of DHA than EPA and GreenOMEGA 3 with 100% Life'sOMEGA3™ is one of the first high potency, vegan and non-GMO omega-3 fatty acid products on the Australian market.
