LAVAL, QC, July 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. (“Neptune” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT), a diversified and fully integrated health and wellness company focused on plant-based, sustainable, and purpose-driven lifestyle brands , today announced the introduction of Forest Remedies’ vegetable multi omega 3-6-9 gums and softgels.
Forest Remedies’ new vegetable multi-omega softgels and gums use natural oil from Ahiflower® from the United Kingdomwhich, unlike fish or krill oil, is a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly source of omega 3, 6 and 9. In fact, one acre of Ahiflower provides the same amount of oil as 320,000 anchovies. The use of Ahiflower Oil means Forest Remedies’ new multi-omega gums and softgels are not contributing to the overfishing of marine life, which has become a global ecological catastrophe in the last 50 years and has resulted in an 80 percent reduction in the Antarctic krill population since the 1970s.
“Forest Remedies’ new multi-omega gummies and soft gels made from ahiflower seed oil instead of fish oil are another example of Neptune’s commitment to making and selling herbal, sustainable and environmentally friendly health and wellness products, “said Michael Cammarata, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neptune Wellness. “We are revolutionizing supplement packaging with a recyclable and compostable outer tube and a compostable and biodegradable inner bag. The product is vegan and our plant-based sourcing does not contribute to overfishing of marine life. I couldn’t be more proud of our efforts to formulate a unique herbal supplement that is good for you and the planet. “
Forest Remedies Soft Gels and gummies are available in a basic Multi Omega 3-6-9 formula as well as an elderberry immune formula with elderberry extract. The gummies are available in Orange Blossom and Fresh Raspberry flavors. Forest remedies Multi Omega 3-6-9 gummy candies and softgels are vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free and made in the United States without a fishy aftertaste like many fish oil-based omegas. In addition, Ahiflower Oil is clinically proven to be up to four times more effective than flaxseed oil in increasing EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid).
