Omega-3s are one of the most widely recognized ingredients on the shelf and are well known for their eye, heart and brain health benefits. So why is it that less than 20% of the global population consume the recommended 250mg/day? One barrier is the lack of plant-based options in the market, as 62% report a preference for a plant-based source of omega-3.1
Consumers are searching for more accessible ways to achieve holistic health and wellbeing. Omega-3s offer a range of expanded health benefits that help keep the world’s population healthy, supporting top consumer health concerns such as immunity, sports performance, sleep and positive mood.
life’s®OMEGA is the first and only commercially available plant-based omega-3 that delivers the benefits of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) fatty acids in a single, quality source. But it takes more than ingredients to unlock innovation in the omega-3 market; it takes an end-to-end partner to support you at every stage of your product development process.
Explore a product with real purpose when you innovate with life’s®OMEGA.

life’s® portfolio, made up of life’s®OMEGA and life’sDHA® is at the forefront of what makes a Power Brand.

life’s™OMEGA is the first and only commercially available plant-based omega-3 that delivers the benefits of both EPA and DHA in a single quality source,1 whilst saving countless fish, sharks and whales.
One third of all fish are caught for their oil*, meaning marine diversity has declined nearly 50% in 50 years, driven mostly by commercial fishing. Because life’s™OMEGA is a 100% sustainable alternative to fish oil, the benefits of omega-3 don’t have to come at the cost of harming marine life.
life’s® portfolio was pioneered as research in partnership with NASA, resulting in the first algal-sourced omega-3 with significant levels of DHA and EPA - twice what basic fish oil would provide.1
Our innovative manufacturing capabilities allow us to scale production up or down, so you’ll always have reliability of supply, since our methods aren’t reliant on natural resources.
Omega-3 is the most researched nutraceutical product, with over 40,000 studies and published papers on the topic.
With an estimated 70% of the global population not getting enough omega-3*, they’re losing out on well-documented benefits in cardiovascular health, brain health and eye health. There are also continued clinical trials in areas like improved immunity, skin condition, joint health, inflammation, muscular health and mobility.
life’sDHA® can play a vital role in the development of babies in the first 1000 days.
life’s® portfolio is championed by our internal experts — widely respected in their fields — to drive credibility and share of voice within industrial and academic settings. With decades of accumulated knowledge and expertise, our experts drive the market forward, producing global products and creating strategic alliances by translating and utilising the science.
Furthermore, DSM regularly engages with a significant group of globally recognized experts and expert associations in nutritional lipids, to further the science of omega-3 LCPUFA and health in a wide variety of populations. Examples include: mining data to develop global maps illustrating omega-3 intakes and status; defining and substantiating DHA/EPA intake levels to support a myriad of positive health outcomes, (such as heart, brain and eye benefits) as well as immunity and aspects of healthy aging*. We also partner with these experts to advocate for recommended intakes and health benefits, which paves the way for public awareness, expert validated benefit messaging and health claims.

Entire ocean ecosystems are in decline due to overfishing. Fish oil derived omega-3 is a major contributor to the problem. DSM's unique life’s® portfolio is algal-sourced, so it's part of the solution the planet needs. If the world were to switch to 100% algal-sourced omega-3, it would mean 22 million tonnes of fish would be saved every year.
