Understanding Dietary Fat Ratios
Humans need several different kinds of fat for optimal health. Two of these, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, are essential fatty acids (EFAs) and must be gotten from the diet. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors had diets that were fairly balanced between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. However, the average diet has become very high in omega-6 fats from seeds and oils but low in omega-3s from fish.

Omega-6 fats compete with omega-3 fats for certain enzymes. Too many omega-6 fats effectively cancel out the positive effects of omega-3s, resulting in a variety of health problems, including insulin resistance, obesity, heart conditions, and neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Correcting the imbalance through food and supplements can be beneficial for the entire body. For vegans and plant-based eaters who shun fish, safe supplementation is critical. Taking several grams of a sustainably sourced EPA/DHA blend can go a long way towards repairing EFA status in the body.

Who Can Benefit From Algae EPA-DHA?
Vegans and plant-based eaters will benefit from a vegan EPA-DHA product.
Anyone who doesn’t eat fatty fish and prefers a plant-based EPA-DHA supplement can benefit..
Individuals who have high blood pressure, high blood lipids, or cardiovascular disease may benefit from EPA/DHA supplementation. 
Aging individuals with low bone density or who are dealing with cognitive decline may improve outcomes with EPA and DHA supplementation. 
Individuals with ADHD, depression, mood disorders, or other psychological issues, such as bipolar or schizophrenia, can benefit from EPA and DHA.
An EPA/DHA supplement may help restore metabolism in individuals with obesity or insulin resistance.
People who have a high degree of stress, particularly those with work-related stress or anxiety, may find Algae EPA-DHA beneficial.  

Pregnant women need to ensure adequate EPA and DHA for healthy growth and development of the fetus. Supplementation with a plant-based omega-3 product may be particularly useful if you are avoiding fish due to mercury or other chemical contamination.
Who Should Not Take It?
Omega-3 fatty acids can have a blood thinning effect. They also lower blood pressure and can affect cholesterol levels in some individuals. Although the effects are rare, always speak to your doctor prior to supplementing.
If nursing or pregnant, speak with a doctor prior to supplementing.
