What is the difference between Omega 3 in Oleumm8 and Omega 3 in Fish Oil?

What is the difference between Omega 3 in Oleumm8 and Omega 3 in Fish Oil?

WHAT IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OMEGA 3 in OLEUMM8 and OMEGA 3 in FISH OIL?

Oleumm8 contains Vegan Plant Based form of Omega 3, ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) that is different from Omega 3 contained in fish oil. Fish Oil contains two forms of Omega 3: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). All forms of Omega 3 are good for health. You cannot cook, using heat, with fish-based Omega 3 nor with most Plant Based ALA Omega 3. Heat destroys Omega 3. There are only 5 oils considered high in ALA Omega 3 in nature as seen in the table. Oleumm8 is not a single oil but a blend of 8 oils that includes ALA Omega 3 oils. Unlike other ALA Omega 3 oils, you can use Oleumm8 to cook with heat for up to 23 minutes without destroying Omega 3. We do this through our proprietary advanced plant-based formula.    

 

Some have called ALA the true Omega 3 because your body produces EPA and DHA from ALA. Recent meta-analyses suggested risk reductions of cardiovascular disease (CVD) from the consumption of Vegan ALA Omega-3 were similar to those of fish-derived EPA and DHA. Other studies have found no significant differences in  

the levels of EPA and DHA in your body derived from ALA Omega 3 or fish-based Omega 3. Another major difference between Vegan ALA Omega 3 and fish-based Omega 3 is the risk of mercury contamination with fish-based Omega 3 and concerns about the sustainability of fish stock in the world.
