life's® Limitless when you choose
algal-sourced omega-3

More sustainable, more potent and more enjoyable to consume.

Limitless. Sustainable. Potent. 

Omega-3s from algae can scale with our planet’s growing population.
With twice the potency – naturally – and all the benefits of fish oil.
Giving more people than ever before access to heart, brain, eye and immune benefits.



Rising water temperatures have created challenges for many fisheries around the world, driving up the cost of fish oil. However, our algal solution offers premium quality at a price point tied to our ability to innovate, rather than being tied to environmental factors, which are beyond the control of producers.

Supply Chain 

While it can take up to 24 months to source fish oil, algal oil can be cultivated, grown and fully refined into a pristine nutritional oil within 25 days. By cutting down supply chain time, you get the purest, freshest and most potent omega-3, without the wait. Plus, unlike fish oil, algal oil starts pure, eliminating the need for extensive investments in purification. Your journey to optimal health is limitless and swift.


Make a difference with your choice. Our extensive Life Cycle Assessment study proves that our life’s® products have a lower environmental impact compared to their fish-based alternatives. By opting for algal omega-3, you actively participate in preserving marine ecosystems and reducing your environmental footprint.


Not all omega-3s are created equal. Our algal omega-3 is naturally twice as potent as standard fish oil. It's rich in EPA and DHA, delivering superior health benefits.* What sets us apart is not just the potency, but also the taste, delivering a superior user experience with every dose.

History born from innovation

dsm-firmenich’s leading omega-3 innovation is based on research by NASA to study the use of algae for food and oxygen supply in space. Going directly to microalgae rather than fish oil makes no difference to the clinical benefits, but in switching to life’s® portfolio products, the ecological benefits are huge.
