Vegan OMEGA 3 fatty acids 🌱 
Omega 3’s are necessary for downgrading  inflammation, are great for brain function, cell membranes, hormone signalling, and healthy hair, skin and nails. Omega 6’s on the other hand – although necessary – can increase inflammation. The omega 3 to omega 6 ratio should be between 1:1-1:5, but the standard Australian diet (SAD) contains up to 1:25 due to the high amount of processed oils and fats we consume. Omega 3’s are mainly found in seafood, so for a vegan that eats a lot of grains, nuts and seeds, which are high in omega 6, it can be hard to keep your ratio in range. This supplement is derived from microalgae so gets all the benefits of growing in the ocean but is still technically vegan 🙌🏼
