larly for the heart, brain, joints, and cardiovascular system — and, as a result, have been the subject of the most scientific research. And thanks to that ever-increasing public awareness, the global appetite for omega-3s continues to grow at a startling rate. With demand far outstripping supply, one American market research publisher says the industry is far from reaching saturation, and that consumer demand for omega-3 products will “continue to grow briskly” through 2015.

Diet Enhance
Company Profile
In the high desert plains of the American Southwest, a Canadian startup company has created a perfect storm of omega-3 opportunity. Algae Biosciences Corporation (TSX.V:ABV) expects to reach full commercial production of its ultra-pure, vegetable-based omega-3 fatty acid oils during the second quarter of 2012. Plentiful Arizona sunshine, scientific resourcefulness, technological advances, and a pristine source of saline groundwater have all combined to produce highly regarded algal oils — which include equal proportions of the essential fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) at a blended ratio of 40 per cent. “Between our consistent sunlight exposure, our ultra-pure water supply, and our advanced proprietary technology, AlgaeBio has the best algae-growing conditions in the world,” says AlgaeBio chairman Robert J. Thompson. “We can produce the highest quality omega-3 fatty acid oils available on the market.” AlgaeBio (www.algaebio.com) and its operating subsidiary, Algae Biosciences Incorporated, are in the final stages of a $5-million, first-phase expansion of their production facilities near Holbrook, Ariz. The company’s proprietary bioreactors were developed with the assistance of one of the world’s most celebrated centres for algae research, Arizona State University’s Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI). AlgaeBio co-founder Andrew Ayers has refined an array of specific algae strains that are ideal for the Holbrook facility’s near-perfect growing environment. Because AlgaeBio uses photosynthesis to grow its algae, rather than batch fermentation, its resulting omega-3 fatty acid oils also include compounds such as carotenoids, phytosterols, chlorophyll, and antioxidants that provide even more health benefits. Unlike some of its competitors, AlgaeBio also uses a supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction process rather than using hexane, a hydrocarbon-based solvent. Thanks to a U.S. patent, AlgaeBio enjoys the exclusive right to culture marine species from the Coconino Aquifer, an ancient underground sea that produces remarkably pure saline groundwater — the perfect medium for growing marine algae. AlgaeBio has a long-term agreement in place with Global Health Trax, Inc. of Vista, Calif., that gives GHT exclusive rights to purchase and distribute AlgaeBio’s ultra-pure omega-3 products destined for the nutraceutical, food additive, and animal feed markets.

Busy lives sometimes make good dietary choices extremely difficult. Diet Enhance, from Ever Young Natural Foods (www.everyoungnaturalfoods. com), is designed to supplement the average healthy diet by improving the overall nutrition of the foods you’re already eating. This lowcalorie, super-food supplement can help to ensure that you’re getting nutrition that supports good health. Diet Enhance is a unique blend of pure, organic algae, containing no artificially synthesized phytochemicals whatsoever. Spirulina, just one of the three algae in Diet Enhance, is considered

singly to be one of the most nutritious foods known. It contains components called mucopolysaccharides that lower the fats in blood. These healthy compounds prevent lipoproteins — including cholesterol — from attaching to artery walls. Diet Enhance also contains astaxanthin and beta-carotene, a Vitamin A precursor. The availability of immune-boosting antioxidants from these important components is key to spirulina’s status as a super-food. The other two algal species in Diet Enhance provide a synergistic powerhouse for high nutrition. Algae live at the bottom of our food chain, and other foods — such as fish — obtain their omega-3 content from algae. Because Diet Enhance is organic, you go directly to the original source of that omega-3. Diet Enhance also provides human-active Vitamin B-12 without the need for eating seafood, a boon for vegans. Thanks to its satiating properties, Diet Enhance could be an excellent addition to a low-calorie diet program. By satisfying hunger with good nutrition

rather than quantity, a dieter can reduce unnecessary calories without compromising needed nutrition. In addition, Diet Enhance can increase energy and endurance. A daily serving (1.5 teaspoons) of Diet Enhance provides three times the protein of beef per unitweight, more phytonutrients than four to five servings of fruits or vegetables, and more antioxidant power than both Vitamins A and E per unitweight. Diet Enhance is also unsurpassed for its digestability and absorption qualities. A dark-colored powder, Diet Enhance can be mixed into — or sprinkled onto — a wide variety of beverages and foods. Diet Enhance may in some cases impart its mild flavor and/or color, depending on the amount used and the nature of the food or beverage in question. Sprinkle a little Diet Enhance into your favorite juice, add it to your morning protein shake or smoothie, or mix it into salsa, dips, and hummus. Diet Enhance is ideal for many soup and bean recipes, and also blends well with Mexican, Italian, and Asian dishes. Use your imagination!

Making Waves
When it comes to omega-3’s medical advances, it appears the eyes have it... again. Regular doses of omega-3 fatty acids, of course, provide a virtual cornucopia of health benefits, particularly for the heart, brain, joints, and cardiovascular system. And just recently, a new study in the Archives of Ophthalmology suggests that a diet rich in omega-3s can potentially decelerate the eyesight deterioration of those who suffer from retinitis pigmentosa. “Vitamin A, combined with an omega3-rich diet (at least 0.20 grams a day) should make it possible for many patients with typical retinitis pigmentosa to retain both visual acuity and central visual field for most of their lives,” reads the study conducted by researchers at Harvard University. Retinitis pigmentosa affects about two million people worldwide, or about one in 4,000. Helping to maintain or improve eyesight has long been a focus at Auum Omega-3 (www.auum.ca). The Canadian company’s Auum Omega-3 Sublingual-D product contains three polyunsaturated fatty acids — EPA, DHA, and DPA — in the balance that the body requires. Together, all three of these omega-3s support the development of the eyes, as well as the brain and nerves, and also directly benefit cardiovascular health. Another bestselling Auum product, Auum Omega-3 D3A with added Retinol A, has been shown to improve night vision. Auum’s customers who take these products regularly report that they no longer need glasses to get behind the wheel at night — and during daylight hours, they’ve noticed that their eyesight is sharper and clearer. In recent years, various studies and clinical trials have linked omega-3s to better eyesight health. These essential fatty acids can improve visual acuity of infants, help to prevent retinopathy, a common eye disease that may cause blindness in diabetics and premature babies, and reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration.
