the highest absorption Omega-3
Let’s dive deeper into Omega-3: fish get their EPA and DHA from eating algae, and the fish store it in their bodies as triglycerides. When we take fish oil, we get that EPA and DHA delivered in the triglyceride form, which is meant for storage.
When Nannochloropsis algae is grown in the sun, this tiny plant powerhouse makes Omega-3 for structure, not storage. This is the polar lipid form that delivers the highest Omega-3 absorption in the human body.
Human clinical science performed by an independent 3rd-party lab (KAGAN ET AL) demonstrates that Omega-3 from Almega*PL ioffers 165% of the absorption rate of fish oil or krill oil. This confirms the enhanced bioavailability of our unique algae-sourced Omega-3.
Science confirms it: iwi’s unique polar lipid form of EPA, Almega™PL, has been shown in research to lower total cholesterol and VLDL better than a placebo.(Rao et al citation). This is big news--the product works, and without compromising the ocean.
iwi farms Nannochloropsis algae which produces an ultra-rare form of Omega-3 that is both fat- and water-soluble, making it much more absorbable and bioavailable for the human body, as evidenced by science. This proprietary form of algae oil is only available from iwi.
