The microalgae Schizochytrium sp. are cultivated in sterile fermentors under controlled conditions. Uninfluenced by ocean pollution, this oil is free of heavy metals (such as mercury), dioxins and PCBs that are commonly found in fish and fish oils.
This results in a 100% vegetable, highly pure omega-3 supplement.
One capsule contains 250 mg DHA which is equal to the recommended daily allowance as prescribed by the World Health Organization.
This high concentration of essential fatty acids obtained from a pure, vegetable source of omega-3 is very beneficial to the brain, eyes and heart. This does not only make Testa Omega-3 better for the oceans, but also better for you.
Testa Omega-3 sells 2 types of Omega-3 supplements, namely Testa Omega-3 DHA (jar) and Testa Omega-3 DHA+EPA (box with blisters). We would like to explain the difference to you.
Testa Omega-3 DHA (current selection)
Is suitable for people who like to have only DHA Omega-3 fatty acids or people who especially take the Omega-3 for eye- and brain health. Testa Omega-3 DHA contains over 250 mg Omega-3 in the form of DHA. It is an ideal supplement for pregnant women in combination with Testa Omega-3 DHA + EPA, because of the additional benefits that this combination offers for the fetus or infant.
Testa Omega-3 DHA+EPA
Is a complete Omega-3 product that is suitable for everyone, 1 capsule per day provides the perfect support for heart, brain and eyes. Testa Omega-3 DHA+EPA contains at least 450 mg Omega-3, of which more than 250 mg DHA and more than 125 mg EPA guaranteed per capsule. This product is very suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Algae of schizochytrium sp.
D-alpha tocopherol (only in DHA+EPA capsules)
Anti-oxidants (tocopherols, ascorbyl palmitate)
Acid regulator (sodium carbonate)
To support your health, in combination with healthy foods, we recommend 1 capsule per day. One capsule of omega-3 per day is equal to eating fatty fish twice a week. In some cases, therapists may recommend a larger dosage.
Taking the supplement with fat-containing meals improves its absorption. If you take the algae oil during a meal, more omega-3 will end up in the body and a higher amount will remain there over time.
However, if you experience acid reflux after taking the algae oil, we recommend taking it before a meal instead. The food will help the capsule find its way to the stomach more easily.
You can also opt to cut open the capsule with scissors or a knife, or to prick it with a needle. The oil can also be mixed with a coconut or almond drink, yoghurt (for example, with lemon flavour) or a smoothie with banana and almond milk. The oil mixes well with such substances and will have a neutral flavour.
The shelf life of the Testa Omega-3 capsules is at least 2 years after the production date, if stored at a (dry) room temperature between 15 â€“ 25 Â° C, protected from sunlight (like other oils). Other manufacturers usually have a shelf life of 3 years, but Testa Omega-3 applies the strictest safety standards. The expiry date (month + year) is on the blister next to the batch number.
Testa does everything possible to protect the product from oxidation:
We produce small batches all year round, so we always have a fresh product at our disposal;
We use an airtight blister package so that each capsule is well protected against external influences.
Rather not. Even if you live in a warm region, we advise you not to store the product in the refrigerator. If you have kept the capsules in the refrigerator, the product may become cloudy because the oil crystallizes.
