Omega-3 EPA & DHA From Microalgae
Why Everyone Needs Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Fatty acids like Omega-3 EPA & DHA are important for virtually everything in your body to function normally, including your respiratory system, circulatory system, brain, organs, and skin. Simply put, without fatty acids your body wouldn’t be able to function, as they help make up the building blocks of every living cell in your body!
While your body can create some types of fatty acids on its own, Omega-3 EPA and DHA are essential, which means they must be consumed daily through your diet in order for optimal levels to be maintained. Since the main dietary sources of Omega-3 EPA & DHA are fatty fish like salmon, trout, and sardines, meeting the minimum daily requirement for these Omega-3s has been a challenge for many people, especially those who can’t or won’t eat fish.
Unfortunately, if you consistently fail to replenish your Omega-3s, eventually it will cause an imbalance of the essential nutrients in your body. While at first, this imbalance may occur just below your radar, over time it can surface as health issues like fatigue, poor memory, an immune imbalance, dry skin/eczema, cardiac-related problems, poor circulation, reproductive issues, and mood swings or depression! If you suffer from any of these, then a supplement like AstaMatrix® may be just what you need, to return your body to a state of balance!
No Fish? No Problem!
When most people hear about Omega-3s they almost immediately think of fish or fish oil based Omega-3 supplements. Well, guess what? The two are not synonymous, because fish are not the original source of marine Omega-3s! In fact, the high levels of Omega-3s found in fatty fish are a direct result of their diets, which are rich in marine plants, called microalgae.

How do Omega-3s Work?
Omega-3 EPA & DHA work their magic in the membranes of your cells, and they are anchored there by phospholipid molecules(link to phospholipids?). Their unique position in your cells is what allows Omega-3s to play roles that support regular cell processes, reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, and aid in hormone production.
