alGeepa, the Vegan Omega-3 Supplement Line, Hits Shelves at H-E-B

HOUSTON, March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualitas Health, the Texas-based company revolutionizing nutrition products by unleashing the power of algae, announced today the launch of alGeepa at H-E-B. alGeepa, the premium, 100% vegan omega-3 supplement line, is now available for purchase exclusively at select H-E-B stores throughout Texas and online through the H-E-B website. More info about alGeepa is available here: www.algeepa.com.

"alGeepa is a breakthrough product that revolutionizes the category of omega-3s," said Qualitas Health CEO Miguel Calatayud. "Most people don't know that fish and krill get their omega-3s from algae. By harnessing the power of algae, our alGeepa line provides high-quality, vegan, sustainably-grown omega-3s in a product that anybody can use everyday. Having worked extensively with H-E-B in the past, I'm excited to explore this new venture and introduce consumers to 'the original omega-3s.'"

alGeepa is the first all-vegan, GMO-Free, and plant-powered dietary supplement line harnessing the life supporting benefits associated with Almega® PL. Almega PL® is a 100% vegan, algae-based ingredient that is specifically designed to help the body absorb omega-3s faster and more completely than ever before. While other omega-3 supplements offer DHA, Almega PL® features the "mother" of all essential fatty acids, the omega-3 EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), with polar lipids for best-in-class bioavailability of any omega-3 source.

Omega-3s are a key part of a healthy diet, leading to improved cardiovascular function, nervous system function and immunity. alGeepa uses algae-derived omega-3s to deliver health benefits directly to consumers, in a formula that's clinically proven to provide superior digestibility and absorption compared to conventional animal-sourced oils.

alGeepa will be one of many products at H-E-B to feature the GoTexan® seal. GoTexan®, an effort of the Texas Department of Agriculture, promotes the products, culture and community that call Texas home. Every alGeepa product will proudly feature the GoTexan® seal as a reflection of its Texas roots and commitment to the Texas economy. Learn more at http://www.gotexan.org/.

The complete alGeepa supplement line includes four products:
