Today, Nutriterra celebrates the planet we call home and the bounty and beauty it provides. While Earth Day is recognized once a year, preserving our natural resources is an everyday commitment for Nutriterra Total Omega-3. Learn about our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship with the top five reasons Nutriterra is the best omega-3 on Earth Day!
- Friend of the Sea Certified
Friend of the Sea® is the global certification standard for products and services that respect and protect the marine environment. Nutriterra applies innovative biotechnology to deliver the nutrition of microalgae through the renewable canola seed, producing omega-3 sustainably and without impact on the world’s marine ecosystems. Nutriterra meets all the safeguarding criteria of the Friend of the Sea and Friend of the Earth® and is proud to play its part in preserving ocean habitats.
- Doubling the Supply of Scarce Nutrients
Just 3-5 acres (1-2 hectares) of Nuseed® Omega-3 Canola produces as much DHA as 10,000 kilograms of fish. With current canola production greater than or equal to 37 mm hectares, only 1.5 mm hectares would be needed to double the world’s DHA omega-3 supply. That’s less than 5 percent of current canola-producing land.
- Improves Soil and Grain Harvest Yields
Canola is a rotational crop that improves soil and increases yield in subsequent grain harvests. This means Nuseed Omega-3 Canola growers can produce more food with fewer resources, reducing the environmental impact of agriculture.
- Provides Habitats for 2000+ Insects
Nutriterra provides an excellent source of omega-3 nutrition for humans, and its source crop, Nuseed Omega-3 Canola, provides an outstanding home for thousands of ecosystem essential insects, including honeybees!
- Fish Love Swimming
Nutriterra® Total Omega-3 makes an omega-3 supplement with a mild taste, a subtle aroma, and total omega-3 nutrition. Why do the fish care about this? Well, they probably don’t, but it’s fair to guess they would rather swim in the ocean than be harvested for oil. Nutriterra, the world’s first plant-based total omega-3, is produced from Nuseed Omega-3 Canola, meaning nary a fish is captured to produce and provide all the omega-3 nutrition the world could need. That makes Nutriterra a game changer regarding the health of the world’s oceans, a fact that is particularly relevant on Earth Day. (Still really important on all the other days too.)
With just these five reasons, it’s clear that Nutriterra is the obvious choice for sustainable and comprehensive source of total omega-3 nutrition. With Friend of the Sea certification, the potential to double the supply of scarce nutrients, support of insect habitats, ability to improve soil quality and harvest yields, and its role in preserving fish populations, Nutriterra is making a positive impact on human health and ocean habitats on Earth Day and every day.
