What is nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil?

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil EPA DHA DPA Algae Oil is a completely natural, high strength nutritional supplement. It’s designed to offer the benefits of Omega 3 without the need for fish or any animal ingredients and ensures ecological integrity.

Why Are Omegas EPA DHA DPA So Important?

EPA Eicosapentaenoic Acid and DHA Docosahexaenoic Acid are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. Essential because the body needs them to survive, but the body does not produce these Omega 3 fatty acids on its own…

 

As a result, we depend on our diet to get the necessary Omega 3 fatty acids into our bodies. EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids work together in human health. DHA helps with cell membrane structure and assists in normal growth and development. While both EPA and DHA participate in key pathways of the immune system where they control processes that support our health, together they provide essential health benefits.

 

Meanwhile, research increasingly recognises that Omega 3 fatty acid DPA Docosapentaenoic Acid is also significant in human health. DPA increases levels of EPA and DHA to a greater extent than just getting EPA or DHA alone or in combination. Taking DPA along with EPA and DHA increases the amount of all three fatty acids in tissues where required the most: heart, brain, eyes, nerve tissue and in the membranes of all cells.

I’m not Vegan or Vegetarian so why not take fish oil?

There are downsides to fish oil. Most fish today contain harmful levels of contaminants and toxins including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. Hence, there are recommended safety guidelines associated with consuming fish, particularly during pregnancy! In addition to any safety issues, there are growing concerns about diminishing fish stocks in our seas, largely due to unsustainable fishing practices.

 

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil offers an alternative that is completely free from all contaminants and toxins and is ecologically sustainable. Find out more about how our products are safe, clean, and green.

Is nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil an alternative to fish oil?

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil provides the body with EPA DHA and DPA – the main Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oils. But the fish don’t actually contain Omega 3 themselves, instead they synthesise it through the algae they eat.

 

nuIQue have simply cut fish out of the loop and gone straight to the main event – the algae! So, no harm to fish or sea life, only pure algal oil from naturally grown algae.

 

Moreover, nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil provides a higher strength algae oil than most fish oil and delivers the correct ratio of EPA DHA DPA recommended for peak health. nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil offers at least 250mg EPA and 500mg DHA per 2 x capsules. Find out more about nuIQue Algae Omega 3 Supplements.

How does nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil compare to nuts and seeds Omega 3?

Flaxseed, hemp, chia, and other nuts and seeds do contain Omega 3 but as ALA Alpha-linoleic acid fatty acid. Whilst still essential, as it’s required to be put into the body – ALA is not equivalent to EPA DHA DPA in its biological effects.

 

DHA and EPA are both biologically available, whereas ALA does not convert sufficiently into EPA and DHA for it to be effective for optimal good health. ALA can be converted into EPA and then to DHA, but the conversion (which occurs primarily in the liver) is limited, with reported rates of less than 15%. NIH.Gov Fact sheet.

 

So, although nuts and seeds are delicious and good for you, they simply don’t provide the body with enough levels of Omega 3 EPA DHA DPA, which are scientifically recognised as supporting good health. Find out more about our Vegan Algae Omega 3 products.

How does nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil compare to other Omega supplements?

Unless other natural Omega 3 supplements talk about EPA DHA and DPA they cannot be compared to nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil. Our algal oil contains all three main Omega 3s and in the correct ratio required to support good health and body system functions.

 

Most plant-based algae Omega 3 supplements just supply DHA Docosahexaenoic Acid or are entirely ALA Alpha-linoleic acid based if they are a seed oil. Find out more about our Vegan Algae Omega 3 products.

Is any part of nuIQue Omega 3 obtained from the sea?

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil is produced directly from algae grown naturally in pure filtered water, rather than taken from the sea. This ensures optimum purity, guarantees the algal oil is free from contaminants and leaves the oceans and sea life alone. Find out more about nuIQue Vegan Algae Omega 3.

What are algae?

Algae are all around us, from seaweed washed up on beaches to the green and red coloured substances we see in ponds. Algae form the staple diet for fish, which is where and how oily fish acquire their Omega 3 fatty acids.

 

We grow our algae in a fully controlled facility to produce nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil Oil. Unlike algae found in the sea, we can fully guarantee zero contaminants or toxins. Find out more about nuIQue Vegan Algae Omega 3 products.

Why does nuIQue Omega 3 contain Carrageenan?

We use a small amount of undegraded Carrageenan seaweed to form our vegetal softgel capsules, and simply because it’s a brilliant alternative to animal-derived gelatine. The level we use is incredibly low with safety ratified by all authorities including the US FDA, and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

This is not to be confused with degraded Carrageenan or poligeenan, which is not a permitted foodstuff. Find out more about the carrageenan controversy.

nuIQue Omega 3 contains rosemary – is it safe during pregnancy?

The therapeutic use of rosemary is not advised during pregnancy. Happily, the minute amount of rosemary used in nuIQue Omega 3 capsules is therapeutic. Rather, in this instance it’s used as an antioxidant and inhibits oxidation, keeping our nuIQue Algal Omega 3 Oil fresh.

 

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil is completely safe for expectant mums.

 

The maximum amount of rosemary per daily dose of 2 x nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil softgel capsules is 11.44mg.
Extracts of Rosemary per softgel capsule:
• Carnosol: 0,5% = 0,015 mg per capsule
• Carnosic acid: 1% = 0,03 mg per capsule

 

If you do have any concerns, please discuss them with your Doctor.

Does nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil contain potassium?

Potassium is ubiquitous and present in virtually everything at some level. However, nuIQue Omega 3 is an oil and potassium is not soluble in oil. We do not add potassium to our Omega 3 Oil. However, we cannot totally eliminate the risk of a TRACE being present.

How does nuIQue produce its Omega 3 Oil - is Hexane Extraction used?

No. At nuIQue we use an algal oil received from algae via a solvent-less process. We do not use any solvent. But some producers do use a solvent in their process!

 

The algae culture that nuIQue uses is pasteurised (cooked) to separate the oil from the cells, where the oil is then skimmed off. The algae oil is treated under mild conditions, and mostly under vacuum to avoid contact with oxygen.
Approved antioxidants are added to the oil providing stability, and finally the EPA, DHA and DPA percentages may be standardised with the addition of food grade vegetable oil; nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil contains Vitamin E of sunflower origin. Find out more about our Vegan Algae Omega 3 products.

Are the softgel capsules pesticide free?

Yes. We perform pesticides testing on botanical ingredients (glycerol, carrageenan, and corn starch) as part of our raw material approval procedure and would not allow any contaminated products to be processed.

How do I take nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 oil?

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil is supplied as convenient soft capsules. Simply take 1-2 capsules daily with food, as this helps absorption by the body.  Two capsules provide up to 300mg EPA and 500mg DHA.

 

If you prefer, you can pierce the capsules and take the nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil oil itself, either directly in the mouth or by adding it to foods. This method is often preferred by parents to help children take it, or for people who may have trouble swallowing capsules.

Why do nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil EPA DHA & DPA levels differ?

nuIQue Vegan Algae Derived Omega 3 Oil is freshly produced therefore it has a shelf life of a year. Each batch is freshly produced to order, and we are working with nature. This means that each new batch may vary slightly in its EPA DHA & DPA levels. For each newly produced batch of Vegan Omega 3 Oil, nuIQue upload the corresponding independent Certificate of Analysis – you can see it in the images with the product photo on this page.

I'm concerned about food allergies and nuIQue Omega 3...

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil is entirely free from GMO, gluten, yeast, wheat, dairy, and sugar-based ingredients. Allergies to fish or fish oil are usually associated with the proteins in fish, so any such individuals should be fine to take nuIQue Vegan Algae Derived Omega 3 Oil.

 

Please do consult your Doctor though if you have any concerns. Click here to read more about health benefits.

Does nuIQue Algae Omega 3 contain Histamine?

Histamine is nitrogenous organic compound often produced by the human body because of injury or insult. High histamine blood levels are an indication of the progression of a disease state. There is no reason why any histamine should be in the algae used for our algal oils, though it is theoretically possible they could be detectable in fish oils. HOWEVER, histamine is highly soluble in water and both algal and marine oils are thoroughly washed with water during the refining process, so it is very unlikely it would be present.

 

Histamine is not a testing parameter within our specifications, and we cannot guarantee the absence of this substance. However, according to the manufacturing process and the nature of the substance, it can be stated that histamine is not likely to be present in this product.

Are nuIQue Vegan Supplements GMO Free?

Yes, all nuIQue products are fully and entirely non-GMO. Find out more about our Vegan Algae Omega 3 products.

Is nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil independently tested for quality?

Yes. Before any product batches are released for sale, we submit them to an independent accredited laboratory to analyse for quality and compliance. We make this data available to all relevant authorities. Our Certificate of Analysis is always available to see on this page along with the product images.

Does nuIQue Algal Oil undergo extensive stability and oxidation tests?

Yes, all our nutritional lipid products undergo extensive stability and oxidation tests. PV and AV (and the TOTOX total oxidation value) are rather crude assessments of oxidative stability and more suited to dairy fats and some vegetable oils. We use much more sophisticated methods internally focused on detecting any oxidised derivatives of the oil.

When shouldn’t I take nuIQue Omega 3?

nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil is created to be suitable for everyone, but if you are taking blood thinning drugs such as Warfarin, please speak with your Doctor before taking nuIQue Mother & Baby Vegan Algae Omega 3 Oil or indeed any nutritional supplements.
