What is VPure?
VPure is made from an algae, that is grown in organically controlled conditions (not in the sea) which does not interfere with marine eco-systems, has no impact on fish stock and their food sources, and is totally 100% sustainable....yipee! :) (Here's a link to a trailer for the documentary "End of the Line", a pretty horrific reminder about what 'over fishing' and the fish oil industry is doing to our oceans, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bedirwk95Oc&feature=player_embedded)
The Omega 3 fats in this algae are rich in EPA (anti-inflammatory) and DHA (great for cognitive function, and anti-ageing) and free from the toxins and heavy metals that accumulate in oil-bearing fish, meaning that VPure is the safest option for pregnant women and children. Also, lets not forget those people out there with allergies towards fish and fish products, what a great alternative!
How Much EPA/DHA in VPure?
Heaps! Per capsule you'll be getting 350mg DHA, and 50mg EPA, plus ALA's (alpha-linoleic acid - another good guy to have on board!). The capsules are 100% vegan, so are gelatin free.
I think this might be my favorite new product here at Evelyn Faye Nutrtion! If you want anymore information about V-Pure just visit there website, http://www.v-pure.com/.
