hermit crab
our story
In the tidal estuaries and saltwater marshes of China’s southern coast, there is a thriving, delicately balanced, and altogether remarkable ecosystem.

among the marsh grasses and mangroves there are mollusks, shrimp, hermit crabs, and dozens of species of fish and amphibians.  The foundation of this complex web of life here, and in all other coastal ecosystems is… algae.  Crustaceans, zooplankton, insects, and so much more depend on algae that thrive within the sunlit seawater here for sustenance, for clean water, and for the oxygen they produce.

And as algae are the foundation of this biological hierarchy, the Chinese Egret (Egretta eulophotes) is at the apex.  An elegant bird with brilliant white plumage, the egret is treasured here as an ancient symbol of divine purity and longevity, but its survival is threatened. Like other aquatic birds, the egret is an indicator species of an ecosystem’s health and ability to sustain life.  Here the egret has established an important nesting area, one of a dwindling few for this majestic bird. Lyxia has in turn established our world-class algal cultivation operation in harmony with the egret in this unique habitat.  Among the mangroves, we are operating a state-of-the-art algal cultivation operation that puts sustainability and environmental stewardship at the forefront, producing innovative and unique nutritional and personal care products to improve the lives of humans and animals, as well as the planet.

Algae are among the oldest lifeforms on earth, and provide direct and indirect environmental support and sustenance to all aquatic animals.  Their incredible efficiency in carrying out photosynthesis, absorbing atmospheric CO2 (a greenhouse gas) and generating oxygen is absolutely essential to life.  Algae’s efficiency in purifying water of organic and inorganic contaminants is equally essential as we face a changing climate, greater demands on our oceans’ resources and mounting environmental pollution.  

We recognized the critical, integral role algae plays in sustaining our seas, our atmosphere, and lifeforms both aquatic and terrestrial – to include our egret.  We saw the opportunity to leverage algae, this microscopic heavy-lifter, – through farms beside the sea, not in it.  Utilizing our processes and our strain of algae we are now able to provide a vegan source of Omega-3 which previously required the slaughter of countless millions of wild-caught fish from our seas.

We grow algae simply, using purified seawater, sunlight, and CO2. Upon harvest, we extract valuable products from the algae to include rich plant protein and nutritious Omega-3 fatty acids.  Whereas Omega-3s (which originated from ocean algae) are conventionally and commercially derived from the oil of processed fish, our process is entirely vegan – our Omega-3s have never been processed through a fish!  Our approach benefits our oceans and our climate while reducing pressure on all sea life.  We yield a sustainable plant-based source of Omega-3 clinically demonstrated as far superior in bioavailability to that found in fish and krill.  We’re staying out of the oceans and away from their strained resources.  We have gone direct to microalgae, Earth’s original, natural source for eicosapentaenoic acid, the Omega-3 more commonly known as EPA.

Lyxia develops what the global market demands, and we are producing it the way all things should be produced today - clean. We are as green as our tiny algae in terms of purity and sustainability, while being mindfully in tune environmentally and ecologically.

our process
Our pathway to rich protein and nutrients - normally obtained from the sea - is in our seaside farm, without the involvement of fish of any variety. No ships. No nets.

A Controlled Process

Because we farm and process our algae directly, we have complete control over all environmental and process inputs. This ensures a purer, more consistently exceptional source of EPA. Heavy metal contamination concerns associated with fish oil are not an issue in our operations. Our AlgaLab Primary Extract complies with the ≤ 0.1 ppm standard for mercury, lead, inorganic arsenic and cadmium.

Be a Part of Something Awesome

Our global population is growing and the demand on our ocean fisheries is ever expanding. There will be a point of collapse if this resource is not managed. Rather than relying on fish for the Omega-3 content they consumed from algae, we have gone direct to farming algae for natural, vegetarian EPA in its most beneficial polar form. We use every component of the green algae we produce, we recycle our sea water, and we purify waste CO2 gas from energy producers as our carbon source – thus reducing greenhouse gases. Choosing products containing AlgaLab Natural EPA demonstrates your commitment to a smarter, sustainable and more beneficial future.

What is AlgaLab® Natural EPA?

WHEN WE SAY NATURAL EPA we are referring to EPA in the forms in which it naturally occurs in Nannochloropsis sp. – the microalgae that we cultivate; the backbone of our company. The primary extract from our microalgae is rich in the Omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and other fatty acids, and these fats occur naturally in both neutral lipid and polar lipid forms. In fact, 80% of the fats produced by our microalgae are polar lipids, comprised of both phospholipids and glycolipids. This abundance of polar lipids in AlgaLab Natural EPA affords unparalleled bioavailability.

Studies have shown EPA from Nannochloropsis sp. to appear in the blood plasma twice as fast as EPA from Krill oil. What enables EPA from Nannochloropsis sp. to exceed that of what was once the gold standard of EPA bioavailability - krill oil? It is both the greater abundance of polar lipids (greater than Krill) and the presence of both phospholipids (as found in Krill) and glycolipids. Our specific glycolipid forms are unique to algae.

In addition to this wealth of polar lipids, AlgaLab Natural EPA is also rich in natural antioxidants. Our primary extract contains roughly 1% chlorophyll plus beta-carotene and other carotenoids, as well as naturally occurring vitamins E and B7 (biotin). All of this chlorophyll makes for a very deep dark green oil.  AlgaLab Natural EPA: uniquely mysterious and demonstrably nutritious!
