Contains the same active components as krill oil, but made from plants instead of crustaceans.
With our advanced patent-pending technology, we have succeeded in creating a vegan capsule that contains twice as much vegan Omega-3 EPA and DHA, 50% more phospholipids and 6 times more astaxanthin than any standard krill oil capsule. (Standard is 500 mg krill oil capsules)
DHA is an essential omega-3 fatty acid. It is an important building block for the brain and is good for vision.
Vitamin D3 has a positive influence on the immune system of children. It is also important for building strong bones and teeth. *The benefits are achieved with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA.
The microalgae Schizochytrium sp. is cultivated in sterile fermentors under controlled conditions. Since there is no impact of ocean pollution, the oil is free of heavy metals (such as mercury), dioxins and PCBs commonly found in fish and fish oils.
The result is a 100% vegetable and very pure omega-3 supplement. This high concentration of essential fatty acids from a pure and plant-based omega-3 source is very valuable for the brain, eyes and heart. That makes Testa Omega-3 not only better for the oceans, but also better for you.
* The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA and EPA.
** The favourable effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA

To support health in combination with a healthy diet, we recommend 2 capsules daily. 2 capsules of omega-3 per day is equivalent to eating fatty fish 4 times per week. In some cases therapists recommend larger quantities.
Taking the supplement with meals containing fat is better for absorption. More of the omega-3 gets into your ‘system’ and more stays behind in your body over time when you take the algae oil with a meal.
However, if you experience belching after taking the algae oil, we recommend taking it before a meal. The food ‘helps’ the capsule find its way more quickly into the stomach.
You can also choose to cut open the capsule with scissors or a knife or pierce it with a needle. You can mix the oil with a coconut or almond drink, lemon-flavoured yoghurt or a smoothie with banana and almond milk. In such liquids, the oil mixes well and the taste is neutral.

Shelf life and storage advice.
The shelf life of Testa capsules is at least 2 years from production date if stored at room temperature. The expiration date (month + year) is printed on the blister next to the batch number.
Testa Omega-3 makes every effort to protect the product from oxidation as much as possible.
In contrast to the bulk of our algae oil competitors, we produce small batches throughout the year, so we always have a fresh product at our disposal, in addition, we use an airtight blister packaging so that each capsule is well protected from external influences.
Can I store the capsules in the refrigerator?
We recommend keeping the capsules at (dry) room temperature and protected from sunlight (just like other oils). Should the room temperature rise, you can store the product in the refrigerator.
If you store the capsules in the refrigerator, the product may become cloudy because the oil crystallizes. Once it reaches room temperature again the oil will be clear again, this does not adversely affect the oil.
