Hello, I had a couple of concerns with most of the ‘ Vegan ‘ omega3s but was recommended these so bought them. I have a few questions to put my mind at ease ; EPA - Algi oil doesn’t ordinarily contain EPA how is that sourced & calculated in the capsules. Helianthus Annuus Oil is Omega 6 - I understand omega 6 & omega 3 compete for absorption how much of this is in the capsule & why? Ascorbyl palmitate is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid and is also a preservative how much of this is in a capsule. I am trying to find a way to continue with a vegan diet & get my daily recommended amounts of DHA & EPA. Thanks, Tony

Vegetology Hi, we use an algal strain (Schizochytrium) that is able to produce both EPA and DHA due to the way it is grown and processes. We use a high Oleic Sunflower Oil as an important carrier for the Algal Omega-3 oil during production. The level is very small and constitutes 15-20mg of the final capsule. We use a highly refined grade of Sunflower Oil that is specifically high in Oleic. Vitamin C (as Ascorbyl Palmitate) is used as an antioxidant to help protect the Algal Omega-3 during production. The level in Opti3 capsules is incredibly small, <10mg.
