Enriching Lives, Protecting our Planet

When you hear the term “omega-3s,” fish may be the first thing that pops into your head. The truth is, many fish are a rich source of omega-3s – the healthy fats that support brain, heart and eye health and function – thanks to the microalgae found in their food chain. Fish eat marine algae and phytoplankton which are nature’s original producers of EPA and DHA omega-3s. Building on what nature created, life’s™OMEGA EPA and DHA from a sustainable and vegetarian algal source.

life’s™OMEGA is produced, from start to finish, in a closed system FDA-inspected facility with controls in place to ensure the highest quality, concentration and consistently reliable and safe product. life's™OMEGA comes from non-genetically modified algae and is produced using the same methods as life’sDHA®. Since 1994, more than 120 million infants globally have been nourished by life’sDHA®.
