FAQ Algae oil
What should I take algae oil for?
Omega-3 fatty acids are so-called polyunsaturated fatty acids. They belong to the essential fatty acids. Humans need them for survival and the body cannot produce them itself. In Germany, about 70 percent of the population has an omega-3 level that is too low, because fatty cold-water fish, which mainly contains the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is seldom on the menu in this country. Vegetable oils, on the other hand, which mainly supply linolenic acid (ALA), are only suitable to a limited extent for an adequate omega-3 supply.
DHA contributes above all to the maintenance of normal brain function and normal vision (from a daily intake of 250 mg).
EPA and DHA contribute to normal heart function (from a daily intake of 250 mg each).
Why algae oil instead of fish oil or krill oil?
Fatty cold-water fish and krill, in particular, enrich omega-3 fatty acids through the dietary intake of algae. But algae are the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
The microscopic unicellular marine algae Schizochytrium sp. occurs naturally in mangrove forests of tropical coasts. Alternatively, the algae can be cultivated in large tanks in an environmentally friendly way to obtain the valuable algae oil in consistently high quality. Krill and fish stocks can thus be sustainably preserved and the marine ecosystem remains unaffected. By cultivating the algae in tanks, they also remain free of pollutants. Algae oil is purely vegetable and therefore equally suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
How is the algae oil produced?
Our algae oil is extracted from the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. This microalga is naturally very rich in the omega-3 fatty nutrients DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Schizochytrium sp. is cultivated in sterile fermentation tanks. The algae oil is produced without the use of chemical solvents (neither in the extraction nor in the fermentation process).
Where is the algae oil produced?
Our algae oil is bottled and processed in our own multi-certified (HACCP, ISO9001 etc.) production facility located in Germany.
Is the algae oil laboratory tested for heavy metals, microbiology, DHA-EPA content, TOTOX value etc.?
Of course, all our products are laboratory tested. Each batch is analyzed before it is placed on the market and we will be happy to send you a copy of the analysis upon request. Either to the currently sold batch or to your received batch (please indicate the best before date on the bottle).
Where does the raw material for the algae oil, i.e. the microalgae Schizochytrium sp. come from?
The raw material for the microalgae, i.e. Schizochytrium sp. algae, comes from the USA.
Does the algae oil contain iodine?
Our algae oil is practically iodine-free. The Schizochytrium sp. alga does not belong to the algae that accumulate iodine from the environment, i.e. the sea. Since our algae are not taken from the sea, but cultivated in sterile fermentation tanks, we have full control over the environment in which the algae grow. There is only 0.018 mg of iodine per 1 kg of algae oil. One capsule contains only 720 mg of algae oil (720 mg = 0.00072 kg). On the maximum daily portion of 1 capsule is thus as good as no iodine more contained.
Are the omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form?
Yes, the omega-3 algae oil is in triglyceride form!
Is the algae oil natural and GMO-free?
Yes, the algae oil contains 100% natural ingredients. It is produced without the use of GMO (genetically modified organisms).
How should the algae oil be stored?
Once opened, the algae oil should be stored in the refrigerator and consumed within about 2 months. Before opening, it can always be stored for about 12 months (see best before date).
Our special edition "Algae oil PUR" without rosemary extract (antioxidant) and blood orange flavor should always be stored in the refrigerator (even before opening) and used until the end of the printed best before date.
Storing the oil in the freezer will extend the shelf life.
Can I mix the algae oil into food or drinks?
You are welcome to mix the algae oil into dishes or drinks. However, we advise that the drinks and dishes are at most lukewarm in order to prevent the high-quality fatty acids from being destroyed.
When is it best to take the algae oil?
We advise taking the algae oil shortly before/during or after a meal, because then the body's own fat-burning is running and the omega-3 fatty acids of the algae oil can be perfectly absorbed.
Why does the algae oil taste slightly "fishy"?
The product smells "fishy" to most noses, but even the fish doesn't actually smell "fishy", it smells "like algae". This alga gives the fish the "fishy" smell for us. This actually means that we should also say that the fish smells "like algae" and not "fishy".
