Source-Omega and its Pure One™ branded products are featured on the website of the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED).
The company manufactures and markets Pure One™, the first and only US made Optimized Omega-3 DHA + EPA algae oil supplement formulation sold as a finished product. The Pure One™ omega-3 ratio is based on the science of human omega-3 metabolism.
The product range is kosher, vegan, infant formula grade and safe in all people, appropriate for those with type-2 diabetes, fish allergies, dietary restrictions and food sensitivities. Source-Omega uses only gluten-free, soy-free plant-based ingredients, all GMP processed in the USA.
The GOED Newsletter announced Source-Omega as the 108th member, with 5 new members listed after the First GOED Exchange in Salt Lake City, January 2011, attended by Source-Omega’s President and Chief Scientist, Dr Scott Doughman, PhD.
"Our product offerings are rapidly expanding the branded value of DHA+EPA from algae oil for international products," said Doughman.
The importance of DHA and EPA are well established and partly informed by the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA), which suggests “fortified foods and dietary supplements may be useful in providing one or more nutrients that otherwise may be consumed in less than recommend amounts.”
Government bodies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recognize the qualified use of DHA and EPA recommendations.
Source-Omega's qualified products meet GOED’s Monogram and strict ethics, which lend industry recognized credentials to the Pure One product.
“The Source-Omega company has made substantial contributions to the industry in only 3 years, plus our beautiful golden omega-3 oil is a leading international brand that drives awareness of pure algae oil for both DHA and EPA from one strain, Pure One, made without any chemical modifications for our differentiated, premium diabetic-friendly, nutraceutical supplement,” said Dr Doughman, who brought the Pure One™ branded innovations to the public in early 2008.
Source-Omega offers private labeling internationally in liquid oil, dietary supplements and medical food. Source-Omega’s plant-based algae omega-3 DHA + EPA products were first formulated by Dr. Scott Doughman in early 2007 while engaged in Omega-3 research at the University of North Carolina’s School of Public Health, funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Source-Omega is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in historic Chatham County, and offers its patent pending omega-3 products made using an advanced vegetarian softgel technology combined with select algae oil grown in the USA.
