Even though DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids already represent one of the largest nutritional supplement ingredient categories, research shows that the market will continue to grow due to consistent under consumption of these long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids and their well-proven health benefits.
Traditionally, DHA and EPA have been obtained from fish oil. However, consumer concerns over overfishing and environmental contamination have driven increasing demands for more sustainable alternative sources for these essential nutrients. Xiaozao’s innovative, industrial-scale process will deliver a 100% vegan, cholesterol-free, heavy metal-free source of EPA Omega-3 ingredient to satisfy this growing market segment. Compared to the Omega-3 triglycerides in fish oil, the polar lipids found in AlgaLab™ CEPA Natural could provide superior bioavailability for this critical nutrient. In addition to EPA, CEPA Natural also contains carotenoid antioxidants, chlorophyll, and other valuable nutrients. Finally, CEPA has no DHA. Recent clinical findings suggest that EPA’s benefits are more effectively delivered in the absence of DHA.
