Juice Plus+ Omega Blend is a plant-based combination of the omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids, derived from seeds, fruits and algae.
The long-chain fatty acids DHA and EPA are essential for the health of the brain, eyes and cardiovascular systems. The problem is, even those eating an ideal, plant-rich diet might have trouble achieving optimal levels without supplementation. In the past, people relied on fish oil to supply EPA and DHA. Juice Plus+ Omega Blend is a 100% vegan omega-3 supplement, which is clean, safe and environmentally sound source of valuable omega-3 fatty acids.
Using fish for their oil is not sustainable and has major impact on oceans and marine wildlife. The dramatic increase of destructive fishing techniques worldwide destroys marine mammals and entire ecosystems. According to the United Nations, in the last decade, commercial fish populations in the north Atlantic region of cod, hake, haddock and flounder have fallen by as much as 95 percent. Studies have predicted that if the fish industry continues the way it’s going, there will be a complete collapse of world fish populations by 2048.
In addition, fish can accumulate toxins such as mercury, dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs); plus, spoiled fish oil may produce peroxides. Algal oil products support a vegetarian diet and are a more sustainable option.
