Sustainability of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The importance of a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids is no secret. omega-3 fatty acids must be consumed through the diet because the human body lacks the enzymes necessary to produce the molecular structure responsible for the health benefits unique to the omega-3 family. These essential fatty acids can be obtained from both marine and plant sources, though marine sources are far more popular. Recent research is beginning to help us understand how we can continue to take advantage of the health benefits of essential fatty acid consumption and doTERRA is leading the charge by finding more ecologically-friendly means to providing high quality omega-3 fatty acids.

However, with the dwindling populations of wild fish stocks, this is becoming a major ecological concern. Alternatively, the marine omega-3 fatty acids contained in our xEO Mega® are harvested in a manner certified sustainable by the prestigious Friend of the Sea organization in Europe.
