Ask Kris Kuiper, MSc,
By choosing Omega-3 Algae Oil, you are choosing quality. We can guarantee it in the following way:
Complete product. There are two omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for humans. These fatty acids have difficult names, but are commonly known by their abbreviations EPA and DHA. Normal algae oil only contains the omega-3 fatty acid DHA.
The algae oil by Glucosamine.com is a complete omega-3 supplement: it contains both DHA and EPA.
Clean product. Algae for the production of omega-3 oil can be cultivated in different ways. Omega-3 Algae Oil by Glucosamine.com is cultivated indoors in advanced production laboratories. As such, contaminants present in external waters do not affect the oil. All conditions are closely monitored. The result is a very clean source of omega-3.
100% vegan. It is not only the oil that is vegan (including the antioxidants): the capsule around it is completely vegan too.
Safe product. The producers of the ingredients fulfill GMP and HACCP requirements. This means that they follow strict procedures which ensure food safety and hygiene.
Independently tested. The end product is randomly tested for heavy metals and biological pollutants by the independent laboratory NutriControl. Click on the microscope symbol below for the most recent test results. Read more about the independent laboratory tests here.
The algae oil we use for this supplement is a natural oil (triglyceride). We prefer this to artificially produced algae oil based on ethyl esters.
Supplements based on ethyl esters have very high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. However, the body is less able to digest and absorb them. Omega-3 in the form of a natural oil is easy to digest and leads to better absorption in the tissues of the human body.
The so-called omega-3 index indicates how the different fatty acids in the blood relate to each other in number. When this index is low, the cell walls of red blood cells contain relatively little omega-3. This is an indication of the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the whole body.
A supplement containing omega-3 fatty acids is often used to supplement the diet when the omega-3 index is low. Research has shown that supplementation with triglyceride omega-3 leads to a stronger improvement of the omega-3 index than with synthetic ethyl ester supplements.

Omega-3 can be taken very effectively during pregnancy and the breastfeeding period.
The omega-3 fatty acid DHA contributes to brain development of the child, among other benefits. For this, the mother must take a dosage of 200 mg of DHA daily in addition to the 250 mg of EPA + DHA which the mother needs for herself. Three capsules of Omega-3 Algae Oil per day provides this combined amount of EPA and DHA.
Our Natural Multi supplement is also a good supplement for women during pregnancy. More about this can be read below.
Various supplements are recommended for pregnant women nowadays. It is estimated that a pregnant woman needs the following every day:
Our Natural Multi (contains fish gelatin) provides iodine (150 micrograms), vitamin D (25 micrograms), and a moderate amount of folic acid (100 micrograms) per 2 capsules. Our multivitamin may be used as a supplement for those substances. It is best to additionally supplement folic acid. It is preferable to obtain choline from food.
Egg yolk is a very rich source of choline: one yolk contains more than 100 mg of choline. The best vegan sources are soya, legumes, and nuts.
