Our omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids (also called ω-3 fatty acids or n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with a double bond at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain.

The three types of omega-3 fatty acids involved in human physiology are α-Linolenic Acid (ALA), found in plant oils, Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), both commonly found in marine oils.

More recently, Docosapentaenoic Acid (DPA) is recognized as a potent essential fatty acid, acting as a metabolic pool which can be either transformed in EPA or DHA.

Marine algae and phytoplankton are the primary sources of DHA and EPA. Seal oil (Phocidae) is the richest source of DPA, which is absent from most fish oils.

Mammals are unable to synthesize omega-3, but can metabolized them by using the shorter chain omega-3 fatty acid ALA, from their diet, to produce longer chains omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA.

SiliCycle offers a broad spectrum of essential fatty acids from different marine sources, which can be standardized either on the total omega-3 content or any of the individual omega-3 fatty acid normally found in marine biomasses (mainly EPA, DHA and DPA). SiliCycle is mastering extraction and purification of omega-3 fatty acids, easily achieving pharmaceutical grade standards (≈ 99 % purity, X-Pure Omega).
