Algamoil Crypthecodinium cohnii is able to accumulate more than 20% of  dry biomass lipids. More than 30% of total lipids are omega-3 fatty acids.


Omega-3 are polyunsaturated fatty acids with a double bond (C=C) at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, since we are unable to synthesize it.


Omega-3 are used for the following purposes:

  • platelet aggregation inhibition (antithrombotic effect);

  • monitoring of plasma levels in triglycerides;

  • blood pressure control;

  • improvement of night vision in adults;

  • optimization of brain functions, from depression, cognition, and memory to mental health.
