Discover omega-3 products with purpose and attract a new generation of consumers

Dive into sustainable omega-3 innovation

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.
