Performance Lab®
Omega 3
Vegan algae-sourced DHA+EPA for heart, brain and cell health*
Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA optimize cell membrane fluidity to support peak performance across all body systems and organs – especially the cardiovascular system and the brain. Omega 3 supplements are most commonly derived from fish and fish oil, but these sources have numerous drawbacks.
Performance Lab® Omega 3 cuts out the middle man – fish – and instead supplies DHA and EPA directly from their natural origin in all aquatic ecosystems: Microalgae.
Safe, sustainable and clean, microalgae-sourced Performance Lab® Omega 3 supplies high-potency EPA+DHA benefits without fish oil’s aftertaste, impurities and environmental impact concerns.

A superior vegetarian alternative to fish oil Omega 3 supplements
Plantgels™ delivery: The world’s first vegan Omega 3 supplement in a 100% natural tapioca softgel. Most other vegan softgels use carrageenan, which has been linked to inflammation
Safe and clean: Microalgae is naturally free of mercury, heavy metal, PCBs and other contaminants sometimes found in fish oils
DHA:EPA ratio of approximately 1.5/1, nature-identical to the ratio found in marine algae
Easy and convenient: Two vegan softgels per serving; no fishy taste or fishy aftereffects
Eco-friendly: Microalgae is the largest biomass in the world, grows rapidly and easily, and features the smallest carbon footprint of any Omega 3 source
Microalgae supplies natural triglyceride (TG) Omega 3s, found to be 70% more absorbable than synthetically processed Omega 3s (ethyl esters)

Ingredients
Algae-derived Omega 3 fatty acids, 300 mg EPA + 500 mg DHA (with 5 mcg natural Vitamin D3)
Omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are flexible long-chain molecules that are used to form and optimize cell membranes throughout the body.
In addition to promoting the growth and development of cells, DHA+EPA are efficiently drawn into cell membranes’ lipid bilayer, altering their physical structure to make them more supple, fluid and permeable.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3s’ Structural Support
DHA and EPA Omega 3s’ structural support for healthy, flexible cell membranes is suggested to enhance membranes’ many beneficial bioactivities, including:
  • Barrier functions: Separating cells from their surroundings, exhibiting selective permeability to allow beneficial substances in while keeping harmful substances out;
  • Cell-to-cell communication: Cell membrane surfaces interact with their environment, including sending and receiving neurotransmitter and hormone signals from other cells;
  • Inflammation modulation: DHA and EPA in cell membranes help form and manage signaling compounds (eicosanoids and docosanoids) that balance the body’s inflammatory responses;
Omega 3s’ cell membrane support optimizes human performance at its most fundamental level – promoting healthy biological function in practically every cell, tissue and organ in the body.
Optimal Omega 3 intake is associated with:
Cardiovascular health
Omega 3s are among the most evidence-backed nutrients for upholding overall cardiovascular performance, with evidence suggesting they help to:
  1. Support stable heart rhythm;
  2. Help keep blood vessels flexible and supple;
  3. Enhance circulation;
  4. Maintain both very low-density lipoprotein (LDL, also known as bad cholesterol) levels that are already within normal range;
  5. Maintain blood pressure levels that are already within normal range
Omega 3s’ heart- and cardiovascular-supportive benefits have earned it a rare qualified health claim from the FDA, which states:
Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.* One serving of Performance Lab® Omega 3 provides 800 mg of EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids.
Cardiovascular Health
Brain Health
Brain Health
Omega 3s supply nutritional support for nervous system health, especially in the brain. DHA is notable as a universal brain health supporter across all life stages:
  • Early life: Omega 3s fuel rapid development of the brain and nervous system, including the eyes. These Omega 3 activities start in the womb and continue through infancy with DHA-rich mother’s milk
  • Adult Life: Middle-aged people who consume EPA and DHA tend to experience less cognitive impairment, a benefit attributed to Omega 3s’ roles in forming new brain cells and modulating brain inflammation
  • Later Life: Brain DHA and EPA levels decline with age, underscoring their importance for memory and cognitive function in later years. In older adults, higher Omega 3 consumption is linked to a reduced risk of age-related cognitive decline
Overall health
Omega 3s’ fundamental inflammation and cell membrane support promote healthy function in nearly every cell and system in the body. Additional benefits associated with Omega 3s include support for:
  • Inflammatory concerns related to the skin, joints and digestive system
  • Blood sugar balance
  • Bone density
  • Immune performance
By optimizing cell membranes, Omega 3s promote some of the most far-reaching wellness benefits of any nutrients found in nature.
The problem: Few people consume enough EPA+DHA to gain their significant benefits.
Many fall short of recommended dietary intake of Omega 3s ALA, EPA and DHA
Omega 3 Intake
Part of the issue may be that fish is the most common Omega 3 source. Fish can be expensive and inconvenient to prepare. Fish oil supplements are easier, but may have other concerns related to purity, safety and eco-friendliness.
Performance Lab® Omega 3 supplies DHA+EPA from microalgae: A superior Omega 3 source for supporting flexible, healthy cell membranes that are optimized to perform.
Carrageenan
Carrageenan softgels may negate Omega 3 Benefits
Red seaweed-sourced Carrageenan is commonly used to make vegan softgels, including Omega 3 supplements.
The problem: Carrageenan has been linked with some health risks, and may promote inflammation – potentially contributing to the same health concern that Omega 3s are addressing.
Performance Lab® Omega 3 is the first and only vegan Omega 3 supplement in the world to use a carrageenan-free softgel made from pullulan and tapioca -- delivering Omega 3s inflammation-modulating support without carageenan’s pro-inflammatory activity.
About Performance Lab® Omega 3 DHA+EPA
Microalgae is the original source of Omega 3 fatty acids in all aquatic ecosystems, making it the purest, cleanest source in nature.
Fish and other aquatic species that consumer microalgae also supply Omega 3s, but environmental toxins start to accumulate down the food chain -- with large, cold-water fish carrying the greatest risk for heavy metals, PCBS and other contaminants:
Performance Lab® Omega 3 uses microalgae because it is a superior DHA+EPA source: Cleaner, safer and smarter, with several additional advantages over fish-derived Omega 3s.

F.A.Q.
Who should take Performance Lab® Omega 3?
Performance Lab® Omega 3 is an ideal supplement for anyone who is seeking a superior-quality, high-potency and eco-friendly DHA+EPA formula designed for superior benefits. Since Omega 3 fatty acids’ cell membrane-optimizing bioactivities cascade to support virtually every system and organ in the body, Performance Lab® Omega 3 should be considered as a foundation supplement to be taken by everyone to promote overall health.
How do I take Performance Lab® Omega 3?
Take 2 softgels with your first meal of the day. For best results use daily and consistently.
Is Performance Lab® Omega 3 safe?
Like all Performance Lab® supplements, Performance Lab® Omega 3 is designed to be safe for long-term daily use, without the need for cycling. Performance Lab® Omega 3 achieves this by using pure, potent ingredients that are dosed appropriately and in line with clinical research.
Performance Lab® Omega 3’s clean formula design – free of GMOs, gluten, soy, colorants, preservatives and other additives – is also well-tolerated by the body, and safe for long-term use.
Performance Lab® Omega 3s’ microalgae source is also far safer than Omega 3s sourced from fish. Some fish species that are rich in Omega 3s are also higher in mercury, heavy metals, PCBs and other contaminants. Although fish oil supplement manufacturers can purify these fish oils using detergents, they cannot legally claim that their products are “100% mercury-free.”
On the other hand, Performance Lab® Omega 3s is naturally mercury-free – it requires no detergent-based purification and carries no risk of contamination. Microalgae Omega 3s are simply smarter and safer than any fish-derived Omega 3 fatty acids.
