Traditionally, fish and fish oil have been our main source.
1. Exposed to Environmental Toxins
Fish oil supplements are produced mainly from oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines from the ocean. Ocean fishes are typically exposed to the environmental toxins, such as mercury and PCBs, which tend to accumulate in the oil of the fish.
2. Highly Processed
To extract the oil from the fish and to purify the oil from the unwanted toxins, the fish oil has to go through numerous industrial processes which may damage the quality of the product and introduce unwanted chemicals into the product.
These toxins and chemicals if consumed can do more harm than good. Health issues aside, sustainability presents an additional challenge.
In order to meet the vast global demand for fish oil, companies are ignoring calls for sustainable fishing practices, continuing to overfish in oceans at an alarming rate.
Not all Omega-3s are created equal. Chia and Flax seeds are known to be good sources of plant-based Omega-3s. However, the Omega-3s found in Chia and Flax seeds are known as ALA. Your body can convert ALA partially into EPA and DHA, however, scientific studies indicate that your body is not particularly skilled at performing this task (7, 8, 9).
If you are on a vegan or vegetarian diet, chances are you may have lower-than-normal EPA and DHA levels in your body (10), and you should consider taking EPA and DHA fortified foods or supplements (11).
Algae are the primary producers of Omega-3 EPA & DHA in nature. In fact, algae are the reason why fish oil is rich in Omega-3s. By going straight to the algae, we can now bypass the fish as the middleman between us and the valuable Omega-3 EPA and DHA.
We have dedicated much care and attention to creating a 100% plant-based and sustainable Omega-3 EPA and DHA product – just for you.
The EPA and DHA rich algae oil is encapsulated in a vegetarian softgel. Each softgel has a rich yellow color, emanating the fresh scent of the ocean.
Each bottle of Migae Omega-3 Algae Oil comes with 60 softgels (30-day supply) containing 500mg of Algae Oil with minimum 15% of EPA and 30% of DHA.
You can be confident that Migae Omega-3 Algae Oil can deliver the same health benefits as fish oil; minus the concern of potentially consuming environmental toxins, or indirectly contributing to ocean and marine-life harm.
Our product’s journey began in November, 2013, when the breakthrough EPA and DHA algae oil was first made available in the USA.
For the past 3 years, we have been working closely with manufacturers in the USA, in order to obtain regulatory approvals both in the USA and Malaysia.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to share that we have successfully met all standards required, obtaining all necessary approvals to finally bring the product to market; and to your household.
We are now ready for production, and are seeking your support to reach $60,000 USD to meet the minimum order quantity that will allow production to ensue.
The more we are able to exceed the minimum order quantity, the more affordable the product will become. In other words, the more people will be able to use our product and reduce our potentially harmful dependency on fish oil.
Want to be one of the first to own a Migae Omega-3 Algae Oil product? Please join us today, and become part of the green and sustainable lifestyle. Your only task is to select one of our pre-order offers now.
You are free to return any unopened bottles to us at any point in the next 2 years after you receive it, in order to receive a prompt refund should you decide that the product is not for you (as long as you return the products prior to their expiration date)
With your support, along with the anticipated closing of this campaign, we expect the products to be ready for shipping to you by early of Q4, 2017.
