The microalga Schizochytrium sp. is cultivated in sterile fermentors under controlled conditions. Not influenced by ocean pollution, this oil is free of heavy metals (such as mercury), dioxins and PCBs that are commonly found in fish and fish oil.
This results in a 100% vegan DHA EPA, pure omega-3 supplement.
One capsule contains 325 mg DHA, 150 mg EPA and 35 mg DPA, 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, plant-based source of omega-3 is very beneficial to your 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 multiple types of vegan omega-3 supplements, including Testa Omega-3 DHA & EPA and Testa Omega-3 DHA. We would like to explain the difference to you.
A complete omega-3 product that is suitable for everyone. One capsule per day provides the perfect support for heart, brain and eyes. Testa Omega-3 DHA & EPA contains at least 535 mg Omega-3, or which more than 325 mg DHA and more than 150 mg EPA guaranteed per capsule.
Suitable for people who like to have only DHA omega-3 fatty acids or people who especially take vegan omega-3 supplements for eye and brain health. Testa Omega-3 DHA contains 250 mg of omega-3 in the form of DHA. It is an ideal algae omega-3 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.
Algae oil (Schizochytrium sp.)
High oleic sunflower oil
To support your health, in combination with healthy foods, we recommend 1 vegan DHA EPA 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 our algae omega-3 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, yogurt (for example, with lemon flavor) or a smoothie with banana and almond milk. The oil mixes well with such substances and will have a neutral flavor.
The shelf life of Testa Omega-3 capsules is at least 2 years after production date, if stored at a (dry) room temperature between 15 and 25°C and 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 and year) can be found on the blister next to the batch number.
We add up to 4 times as much vitamin E (antioxidant) to Testa Omega-3 DHA & EPA to protect the product against oxidation as well as possible. In addition, unlike most of algae omega-3 supplement competitors, we produce small batches all year round, so we always have a fresh product at our disposal. We use also an airtight blister package so that each capsule is well protected against external influences, such as oxidation.
We recommend against it. Even in warmer regions, it is advisable not to refrigerate the product. Storing the capsules in the refrigerator could lead to cloudiness in the product due to oil crystallization.
