About Pure Food Marine DHA
The docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish oil originate in the algae consumed by fish. Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Marine DHA Vegan Omega-3 provides the benefits of these omega-3 fatty acids in a sustainably harvested, non-GMO formula derived from algae. Extracted from specially selected microalgae that naturally produce pure DHA and EPA, this algae-based source of omega-3 has no fishy smell or aftertaste. It is an excellent vegetarian and vegan alternative to fish oil supplements.
DHA supports healthy eyes, vision, and brain function and is vital for healthy eye and brain development in children. It also promotes cardiovascular health and cognitive function.
While the body can convert some shorter-chain omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) to DHA and EPA, only a small amount is converted. As a result, obtaining these fatty acids through supplementation is often recommended. Marine DHA contains 295 mg of omega-3s per softgel. Unlike plant-sourced omega-3s, algae-sourced omega-3s do not require conversion and are more easily used by the body. Marine DHA Vegan Omega-3 is guaranteed to be free of ocean-born contaminants, including heavy metals, pesticides, and other environmental pollutants.
Recommended use: Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, support eye health and brain function, as well as cardiovascular health.
Recommended adult dose: 1 softgel daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Caution: Keep out of the reach of children.

Are the vitamins and minerals fermented, USP vitamins, or a combination of both?A
Most of the vitamins and minerals in the multivitamin formulas as well as Bone Structure formula are from the fresh farm ingredients or from food sources such as organic algae (calcium), lichen (vitamin D3), sunflower oil (vitamin E), natto (vitamin K2), Indian gooseberry (vitamin C), selenium (sprouted garlic), Dunaliella salina (beta carotene), kelp (iodine), marigold flowers (lutein), and tomatoes (lycopene). Our proprietary formula also utilizes activated forms of vitamins to ensure that meaningful levels of key nutrients are delivered in the bioactive whole-food formula.
How do Whole Earth & Sea formulas compare to other whole-food supplements?A
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is killed off and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as other whole food sources and raw processes these nutrient-dense plants using our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology, yielding a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
What is the vegan whole food source of the Vitamin B’s in the Whole Earth & Sea?A
The B vitamins are sourced from Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as produced via a bacterial fermentation. Supplements produced through this natural process have shown to be extremely well absorbed and lead to increased levels of the active forms.
