Consumers are continuously shaping the supplement market. From brain health to heart health and women’s health, there is an increasing need for functional food brands to cater to a wide range of health-specific issues.

Discovering the right ingredient to use in your next formulation is often a challenge. Areas to consider include manufacturing ease, ingredient purity, its sustainability factor, and if it’s food-grade approved. When it comes to omega-3, there is also a question surrounding authenticity. Brands must be aware that the origin of ingredients must be verified before placing claims on their products. For example, in a recent market screening analysis by Orivo, 36% of all omega-3 supplements bought from Amazon and TMALL were fraudulent, and up to 71% of salmon oil products tested contained no salmon oil 1 .

At biomega ® , we can assist with formulations for your next product. So, if you’re looking for an ingredient that contains natural omega-3 and is truly authentic, you’re in the right place.

How it benefits consumers

We know that there are three main types of omega-3: ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) found in plants, and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), which are found in animal foods and algae. Foods that contain omega-3 – including oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines – are also naturally rich in EPA and DHA.

For consumers, this is important as many studies cite that consuming more EPA and DHA from foods or dietary supplements can lower triglyceride levels 2 . This, in turn, can lower the consumer’s risk of developing heart conditions. Fortunately, SalMe Salmon Oil contains a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.

Of course, SalMe Salmon Oil is not like every other fish oil. It’s also rich in natural astaxanthin, which is known to have many beneficial effects on the human body, including in immunity, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases 3 . As biomega ® SalMe Salmon Oil contains more than 4mg of astaxanthin per kg, it naturally supports the body to reduce inflammatory effects that can often be triggered by poor diet.
