How POS Bio-Sciences is making it easier for you to get vital Omega 3s.
Saskatchewan is home to Omega 3s
POS Bio-Sciences has the ability to process over 2000MT of marine and vegetable oils every year, and is well-known for processing omega-3 oils, maintaining omega-3 content and eliminating oxidative components to provide high quality / low odor finished oils.
One of the major fatty acids known for maintaining overall health, and one that POS has plenty of experience processing, is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid found within the omega-3 family and has a wide array of health benefits.
Omega 3s are important to your health
As the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, DHA must be replenished for cognitive function. Memory, language, reasoning and problem solving abilities are maintained through a complete diet that includes Omega-3s.
Likewise, evidence suggests that the body’s highest concentration of DHA is found in the retina of the eye, and maintaining that nutrient level is important for eye and retina health. DHA is an important nutrient for cells of the eye that control the ability to see under different lighting conditions.
DHA is an important nutrient throughout childhood and adulthood and also during infancy. Research has found a maternal diet high in Omega-3s during both pregnancy and lactation contributes to healthy infant development.
POS Bio-Sciences is making it easier to get your daily dose of Omega 3s
The World Health Organization recommends a diet containing 250-500mg per day of DHA and EPA. These can be obtained through seafood, fortified foods, and dietary supplements.
At POS Bio-Sciences, we are excited to introduce Algarithm Ingredients, Inc. (“Algarithm”). Algarithm is a POS Bio-Sciences company providing a Non-GMO, vegetarian source of DHA – Omega-3, and delivers this ingredient through many forms, such as oils, powders and emulsions, which supplement diets and maintain health.
