WATSONVILLE, Calif., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Naturals®, the leading manufacturer of omega-3 supplements, has introduced Algae Omega™, the ideal solution for vegetarians seeking the health benefits of marine omega-3s. Made from sustainably sourced microalgae and available in both soft gels and liquid, the product offers an algae-based source of beneficial marine omega-3 essential fatty acids without the use of fish.

"In order to support our mission of correcting the global omega-3 deficiency, we are committed to bringing innovative new products to market in order to meet the individual needs of our customers," said Joar Opheim, founder and CEO of Nordic Naturals. "We formulated Algae Omega with vegetarians in mind, and for anyone wanting a readily available, high-quality source of EPA and DHA from a non-fish source."

While algae oil is typically rich in DHA, Nordic Naturals Algae Omega is uniquely formulated to contain significant amounts of EPA as well.  In fact, Algae Omega delivers the expert-recommended daily dose of 500 mg of combined EPA and DHA. This level offers complete nutritional support for normal vision, heart health, positive mood, immunity and the body's natural anti-inflammatory response.

Nordic Naturals ensures that its products, including Algae Omega, are processed with minimal environmental impact. In addition, independent labs test all oils for heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs to guarantee purity, freshness and quality in every batch. Certificates of Analysis are available upon request.

To celebrate the launch of its new product, Nordic Naturals will give away free bottles of Algae Omega during the month of July. Giveaway dates will be announced on the company's Facebook site.
