Here's to everyone who wants to protect the fish population and prefers to consume renewable raw materials - and here's to vegetarians, vegans, mothers and small children.
A global first: Ovega3™life drink - the first omega-3 drink containing DHA algae oil and the natural super antioxidant astaxanthin with a tasty organic lemon/orange flavor
Ovega3™life drink contains the active omega-3 substance DHA, docosahexaenoic acid. Our bodies need this active omega-3 substance. DHA is not comparable to other plant-based omega-3 fatty acids that are found in linseed oil as ALA, alpha linolenic acid. ALA, alpha linolenic acid, is not an active substance and first needs to be turned into the active omega-3 substance DHA by our bodies in a complex process. 90% of the substance is lost when our body turns ALA into DHA. That means that out of 2,000mg of omega-3 alpha linolenic acid, only 10%, or 200mg, of the active omega-3 substance, docosahexaenoic acid, remains after our bodies have completed the process.
Ovega3™life DHA drink is the first liquid DHA algae oil in a drink and tastes great.
Ovega3™life is made from the highest quality bioavailable ingredients.
Ovega3™life was designed to help meet the need for active omega-3 fatty acids in adults, teenagers and children over the age of one.

Ovega3™life drink with DHA algae oil contains
high-quality, plant-based, active DHA omega-3 fatty acids from the oil of the microalgae schizochytrium sp., organic lemon and the natural super antioxidant, astaxanthin.
This drink has a delicious lemon flavor. Drink one teaspoon a day. Gourmets use it in cold dishes like salads, etc. This product was designed especially for children and people with difficulty swallowing pills, vegetarians and vegans.
New formula with natural astaxanthin
Astaxanthin from the haematococcus algae is the strongest natural antioxidant there is. Although this pure natural astaxanthin mostly contains astaxanthin, it also contains antioxidant ingredients like lutein, beta-carotene and natural vitamin E. These substances work together, which means they increase the effect of astaxanthin, making this pure astaxanthin the strongest natural astaxanthin there is. Astaxanthin is the best substance that can be found in nature when it comes to catching free radicals in the body It is 60 times stronger than vitamin C, 50 times stronger than beta carotene and 10 times stronger than vitamin E.
Good for the heart
The active omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, are essential for the health of your heart. Our bodies are not able to produce these substances and gets these important nutrients from our diet. Active omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into the cell membrane and are crucial for their production and function. Active omega-3 fatty acids have a positive effect on regulating blood lipids and are essential for the heart.
A must for expecting mothers
Omega-3 fatty acids affect brain and eye development in infants. The omega-3 byproducts, eicosanoids, influence numerous metabolic processes and functions. Pregnant and nursing women have higher DHA requirements at 2g of DHA/day. That is the same as 8 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons of our Ovega3™life DHA drink.
Building block for eyes and brain
60% of all fatty acids in the eye's retina and 40% or most unsaturated brain lipids are made up of the omega-3 fatty acid, DHA. Omega-3 reduces the negative effects of arachidonic acid, which is an omega-6 fatty acid and too much of which is consumed when we eat food products of animal origin.
Not enough omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-6 fatty acids affect our ability to absorb omega-3 fatty acids. Too many omega-6 fatty acids in our diet slows the absorption of omega-3 fatty acids. The 2000 German Nutrition Report and the 2003 Austrian Nutrition Report found that the population consumes too much omega-6 in their daily diet. According to the nutrition reports, the current relationship between omega-6 and omega-3 is 8 : 1. According to scientific findings, however, it should be 5 : 1. That means we need to reduce our consumption of omega-6 fatty acids like linoleic acid, gamma-linolenic acid and arachidonic acid and/or increase our consumption of omega-3.
TG fish oil - natural triglycerides (TG)
Triglycerides also referred to as triacylglycerol, are the natural forms of fat. All fats produced or stored by living plants or animals as energy reserves take the form of TG. TG is a compound of 3 fatty acids and 1 glycerol. In addition to TG, omega-3 capsules are also sold in different countries in the form of ethyl ester (EE). EE is an "artificial form", which means it does not exist in nature in that form and is more affordable than TG. Only natural TG oils are allowed in omega-3 products in Switzerland, Germany and France. Artificial EE is allowed in omega-3 products in countries such as the US. The DHA algae oil used in Ovega3™ is a natural TG product.
No more having to swallow omega-3 capsules
Many people have difficulty swallowing large capsules. That's why we now offer Ovega3™life drink in drinkable liquid form. Capsules are often made from gelatin. Gelatin is an odorless, colorless, gel-like substance produced by cooking down connective tissue (skin, bones, sinew), which releases the protein mixture that makes up gelatin. Because of the BSE scare, many consumers are reluctant to consume products made from animal bones - like gelatin.
That's why EnergyBalance™ got rid of capsules with its Ovega3™life drink product
Children 6-24 months 2 ml = 1.8 g = 100 mg DHA, children from 25 months, adolescents and adults daily 1 teaspoonful = 5ml = 4,5g = 250mg DHA with or before a meal.
