What are the benefits of using an algae-based Omega supplement, instead of a fish-based Omega supplement?
Grizzly’s algae-based and fish-based omega supplements are comparable in their omega profiles and resulting benefits to your pet. The primary difference is plant versus animal:
- For those concerned with the health of our ocean, using a plant-based Omega supplement is an excellent alternative to ensure wild fish populations remain stable as our planet warms.
- The same is true when comparing to farm-raised fish: plant-based omega oils are cultivated and harvested on land, in a 100% controlled and protected environment here in the United States—unlike farmed salmon, the majority of which have increasingly negative impacts on the ocean’s natural ecosystems and environments.
- Lastly, plant-based omega oils are an excellent solution for those who choose to feed their pet a vegetarian or vegan diet.
How does Grizzly’s algae-based omega supplement compare to a fish-based omega supplement?
Both Grizzly Salmon Plus and Grizzly Algal Plus Oil contain long chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA, DHA, and ALA, only in different ratios:
Grizzly Algal Plus:
- EPA = much lower levels than Grizzly Salmon Plus, however these low levels are offset by a much higher level of ALA. Both EPA and ALA promote healthy skin and coat.
- DHA = comparable levels with Grizzly Salmon Plus. DHA helps support a pet’s cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems.
- ALA = higher levels than Grizzly Salmon Plus; this is nutritionally important for skin and coat health.
- Omega-6: this is essential, but only in small amounts. Grizzly Algal Plus has a higher level than Grizzly Salmon Plus, but still within acceptable range.
- Omega-9: comparable levels with Grizzly Salmon Plus; this provides a good source of energy but is not nutritionally important.
Grizzly Salmon Plus:
- EPA = much higher levels than Grizzly Algal Plus, in exchange for its lower level of ALA. Both of these long-chain fatty acids promote healthy skin and coat.
- DHA = slightly higher levels than Grizzly Algal Plus. DHA helps support a pet’s cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems.
- ALA = much lower levels than Grizzly Algal Plus, however this is offset by its much higher level of EPA (both EPA and ALA help support healthy skin and coat).
- Omega-6: Grizzly Salmon Plus has a much lower level of this fatty acid; lower levels are better.
- Omega-9: comparable levels with Grizzly Algal Plus; this provides a good source of energy but is not nutritionally important.
How is Grizzly Algal Oil made?
Grizzly Algal Plus Oil is cultivated and harvested on land, in a 100% controlled and protected environment here in the United States.
The algae used is refined in a food-grade manufacturing facility to produce a high quality, stable product that is free from ocean-borne contaminants.
