Calling all Vegetarians: Nothing Fishy Going on Here with NutraVege™
Approximately 12 million Canadians are either already vegetarian or are eating less meat, according to a poll by the Vancouver Humane Society and Environics. If you follow a vegetarian diet, then you likely find it difficult to get the heart-healthy omega-3s DHA and EPA as they are found in fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel and herring.
In Canada, Nature’s Way recently launched its new NutraVege™ supplements that offer pure and balanced plant sourced omega-3s derived from algae. NutraVege features life’sOMEGA™ - a vegetarian equivalent to fish oil. life’sOMEGA is produced, from start to finish, in an FDA-inspected facility with controls in place to ensure the highest quality.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are long-chain omega-3s that help to support overall heart health. The NutraVege line delivers 500 – 1,000 mg of life’sOMEGA per serving. To learn more and to purchase, visit www.Well.ca.
