Ingredients BalanceOil+ Vegan:
Natural: Cold-pressed olive oil, algae oil from the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp., refined echium oil, antioxidants (tocopherol-rich extract), vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol derived from plant extract)
Lemon: Cold-pressed olive oil, algae oil from the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp., refined echium oil, flavour (natural lemon flavour), antioxidants (tocopherol-rich extract), vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol derived from plant extract)
The oil derived from the marine microalgae Schizochytrium sp. is rich in the Omega-3 fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This is the first vegetarian EPA/ DHA product available that provides a bio-alternative to traditional fish oils. Produced in an FDA-inspected and rigorously controlled facility in the USA, it is a concentrated and consistent product.
The cold-pressed echium seed oil is treated in a low temperature cleansing process where it is refined, bleached, deodorized and winterized to give it a clear pale yellowish look and neutral smell. It is GMO-free, rich in the Omega-3 fatty acids Omega-3 SDA and ALA, as well as the Omega-6 fatty acid GLA. A superb choice for vegetarians and vegans, echium seed oil has an ideal fatty acid profile. Firstly, it contains twice as much Omega-3 as Omega-6, and can therefore help to balance the Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio. This is in contrast with most vegetarian oils, which contain excessive Omega-6’s. Secondly, echium seed oil contains the rare Omega-3 fatty acid SDA, which is converted five times better to EPA in the body than the typical plant Omega-3 ALA, e.g. in flaxseed. But there is more. Echium seed oil also contains the valuable Omega-6 fatty acid GLA.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The Spanish Picual olive is selected due to its richness in Omega-9 and very high antioxidant content. The olives are of pre-harvest quality and in the process the stones are taken out and only the fruits are cold-pressed, resulting in an extra virgin oil rich in Omega-9 (Oleic acid) with very high amounts of antioxidants called polyphenols (above 750 mg/kg5), both with several beneficial effects.6 The polyphenols protect the BalanceOil+ Vegan in the bottle but even more importantly, also your cells.4
Our exclusive vegan vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) comes from a special, organically grown, plant source called lichen. It can accumulate large levels of useful nutrients, including vitamin D3. The vitamin D3 is extracted, and then some coconut oil is added to it. The vitamin D3 is vegan-certified and of course GMO-free.
Mixed tocopherols are commonly used antioxidants in dietary supplements. The natural tocopherols used are made from GMO-free, highly refined soy bean oil distillates, which undergo further refining and therefore do not contain any soy proteins. This means there are no allergens present. The typical composition is: alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherols.
