Algal oil

How much do I need?

ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) has not established Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for Algal Oil.

Sources of Algal oil:

  1. Algae

Benefits:

Algal oil is derived from algae and contains DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid which is a primary structural component of the brain. Adequate intake of algal oil improves memory and overall cognitive function and reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Algal oil reduces blood pressure, controls high cholesterol level, decreases blood clot formation and lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes. It has anti-inflammatory properties that helps to treat Osteoarthritis and joint pain. Since there are very high levels of DHA present in the retina, algal oil helps to maintain good eye health. It reduces the risk of macular degeneration, an age-associated condition that leads to vision loss.

Many cold-water, fatty fishes like Salmon, Mackerel, Herring are rich in Omega 3. However, we include Algal Oil which is not derived from fish and is a vegetarian source of Omega-3s and DHA.

We include Algal Oil in Kids Vitty Maxx.
