We all need to eat better. We especially need much more plant-based nutrition in our diets - including the true source of omega fatty acids which support a broad array of health benefits, especially for the brain, vision and heart.
As most people don't get enough good omegas in their diets, Juice PLUS+ Omega Blend bridges the gap between what we should eat, and what we actually do eat, every day.
Make good choices in your life with our new Juice PLUS+ Omega Blend to help bridge the gap between what we should eat and what we do eat.
Juice Plus+ Omega Blend is a natural plant-based blend of Omega fatty acids - not just Omega 3, but also Omega 5, 6, 7 and 9 from seeds and algae. These oils are cold pressed to ensure minimal impact on their nutritional quality and integrity.
Unlike other Omega supplements in the market, we use the original source, algae, instead of fish. This provides us with purer, more sustainable source of Omega 3's.
We encapsulate these oils in a vegetarian capsule made from tapioca. The two halves of this capsule are fused together using a new, state-of-the-art encapsulation process that avoids the need for higher temeratures that can negatively impact the nutrients inside.
Consisting of algae, fruit and different seed oils the Omega Blend capsules provide a wide range of omega fatty acids like DHA and EPA. These are linked to the following health benefits:
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.*
EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart.**
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function.*
EPA and DHA contribute to reduce inflammation**
*A positive effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA.
**A positive effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg EPA and DHA.
The long-chain fatty acids DHA and EPA are essential for the health of the brain, eyes and cardiovascular systems. The problem is, even those eating an ideal, plant-rich diet might have trouble achieving optimal levels without supplementation. In the past, people relied on fish oil to supply EPA and DHA. Juice Plus+ Omega Blend is a 100% vegan omega-3 supplement, which is clean, safe and environmentally sound source of valuable omega-3 fatty acids. Algae is the purer source for Omega 3 and the beginning of the aquatic food chain.
Using fish for their oil is not sustainable and has major impact on oceans and marine wildlife. The dramatic increase of destructive fishing techniques worldwide destroys marine mammals and entire ecosystems. According to the United Nations, in the last decade, commercial fish populations in the north Atlantic region of cod, hake, haddock and flounder have fallen by as much as 95 percent. Studies have predicted that if the fish industry continues the way it's going, there will be a complete collapse of world fish populations by 2048.
In addition, fish can accumulate toxins such as mercury, dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs); plus, spoiled fish oil may product peroxides. Algal oil products or supplements are also great options for people who have a vegetarian diet or wish to go with a more sustainable option.
