~ Marine Algae Oil
Potent-Sea's Omega-3 oil is sourced from micro-algae known for its high DHA and EPA content. Ours are grown in fermentation tanks, free from environmental contaminants like heavy metals, microplastics, and pesticides, and we use a water-based extraction process, so no chemical solvents or heat are involved.
Our Potent-Sea Omega-3 algae oil uses minimal processing, offers the same health benefits as fish oil without the risks, and does not negatively impact ocean life in any way, shape, or form.
~ High-oleic Sunflower Oil
The good kind of sunflower oil. High-oleic sunflower oil is a type of plant oil made from sunflower seeds that have been bred to contain more heart-healthy oleic fatty acids (monounsaturated fats) and less linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fats).
High-oleic sunflower oil is less susceptible to oxidation (which can result in rancidity) than traditional oils, and is a rich source of vitamin E (a fat-soluble nutrient that may help protect cells from age-related damage), making it an excellent carrier oil.
~ Rosemary Extract
Rosemary is a fragrant evergreen herb native to the Mediterranean. You may be familiar with rosemary as an aromatic herb with great flavour for cooking, but in Potent-Sea, it’s valued for something else.
Its antioxidant-rich extract makes it a great choice for preserving the shelf-life of finished handmade natural products because it significantly slows down the oxidation of fatty oils, all without the use of synthetics or chemicals. As a natural preservative, it also inhibits the growth of microorganisms.
Q. Is marine algae a plant or animal?
A. Neither. There are over 27,000 types of algae. The marine algae used in Potent-Sea comes from Schizochytrium sp., a type of micro-algae found in some marine coastal areas.
Q. What's the shelf life of this oil?
A. 2 years from the date of packaging. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Refrigerate after opening.
Q. Where does the waste go after production?
A. There is minimal to no waste. Any “leftover” algae is re-established into the fermenter colonies. The process is completely circular.
Q. Do you have a certificate of analysis?
A. Yes. Attached as last pix in this listing.
Q. Are the rosemary and high-oleic sunflower oils non-GMO?
Q. How does Potent-Sea compare to raw hemp seed oil, phytoplankton, and fish oil?
A. Potent-Sea is totally different from hemp seed oil and fish oil. Hemp Seed Oil doesn’t contain EPA & DHA - but it is a good source of ALA. Potent-Sea is similar to fish oil based on its amounts of EPA & DHA and health benefits, but it is much healthier because it doesn’t contain heavy metals like mercury.
Potent-Sea is also 100% ocean and environmentally friendly, whereas fish oil is not. Compared to Potent-Sea, Phytoplankton has much lower levels of omega-3s, but it is a whole food source and is incredibly beneficial for its minerals, amino acids, and superoxide dismutase (the king of antioxidants).
Q. Does Potent-Sea contain Vitamin E? Do animals need additional Vitamin E in order to absorb the Omega-3s?
A. Yes, Potent-Sea does have vitamin E in it, listed as tocopherols in the ingredients. It helps to ensure that your pet can safely and effectively absorb and use the omega-3 fatty acids. It also helps prevent oxidation (rancidity), which is a known problem with EPA and DHA. It is believed that oxidation of EPA and DHA in the body can have adverse effects, primarily when consumed at very high dosages.
