Aurora Algae A2 EPA Pure™ is a fresh alternative to a growing problem. A2 EPA Pure oil delivers exponentially higher potency EPA; the purest, high quality ingredient for supplements and pharmaceuticals. While other forms of EPA are extracted from the middle-man (or fish), A2 EPA Pure comes straight from the 100% vegetarian source, is truly sustainable, and an ideal alternative to those avoiding fish or soy products.
Benefits of an Algae Based EPA
- Unlimited scalability
- Year round fresh supply
- Allergen-free, vegetarian marketability
- Consumer palatability
- Eco-friendly and sustainably grown
Get to Know Your Omegas
EPA, DHA, and ALA are the three main Omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA are found in fish and alga oil, ALA is found in plant sources like walnuts, flax seed, canola, soybean, and green leafy vegetables.
EPA has incredible anti-inflammatory effects, which prevents and relieves painful symptoms of arthritis, prostatitis, and many other “itis” conditions. Studies have suggested that EPA has superior lipid management properties, lowering cholesterol and contributing to heart and cardiovascular health. EPA is also thought to have strong neuro-protective properties, positively affecting mental conditions such as schizophrenia, depression and overall mood. Recent studies suggest that when used in combination, EPA boosts the effectiveness of proven blockbuster drugs.
Benefits of EPA
- Unsurpassed inflammation control
- Superior cardiovascular support
- Strong neuro-protective properties
- Synergistic effect with other anti-inflammatory drugs
Scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports the potential of EPA (EicosaPentaenoic Acid, C20:5 n-3) as an effective treatment for multiple disease categories such as lipid management, anti-inflammation, and depression. Yet our body cannot generate Omega-3s itself. Instead they must be obtained through your diet. Further, your body must convert the short-chain version (ALA) to a long-chain version (EPA, DHA) to make use of it—but this conversion doesn’t happen efficiently. So, the purer, most concentrated form of long chain Omega-3, the better the efficacy in your body.
While the industry standard concentration of Omega-3 is generally a combination 18% EPA and 12% DHA, Aurora’s “crude” algal oil contains 65% EPA and easily lends itself for concentration to pharma-grade levels of 95% EPA or more. With this level of purity and concentration, you get more of what you need and less of what you don’t.
Food for Thought
Fatty fish and fish oils have recently taken center stage for their health benefits. But it’s the fish’s food source that should be getting all the applause. Fish rich in Omega-3s have their natural algae diet to thank. And now you can get those benefits straight from the source…no fishy smell, no fishy taste. And because our source is plant based it is ideal for people who have chosen a vegetarian lifestyle or those who want to avoid risks associated with consuming fish.
Always in Season
A major challenge preventing wide scale adoption has been the availability of a natural, sustainable source of EPA. Yet, with further scientific evidence of the incredible efficacy of this essential fatty acid, global demand is likely to swell at an even greater rate. Current animal (fish oil) and vegetarian (fermented yeast) sources face serious scalability and sustainability issues. Aurora uses novel and proprietary open pond technology to grow its algae on a scalable platform to meet the rapidly growing demand. With algae’s quick and constant growth cycle, we are able to scale our crops to synchronize grow cycles to customer demand. Always in season; always fresh.
