Martek Biosciences Corp.'s Ovega-3

Martek Biosciences Corp., Columbia.

Martek is now a division of DSM Nutritionals, maker of biomedical materials. Martek focuses on nutritional products derived from microalgae, including those with DHA and EPA, sources of omega-3 fatty acids that have been linked to cardiovascular and brain health. These products are for those who can't or won't consume fish, who get the fatty acids from the algae they eat. The company also sells supplements for relief of urinary tract and yeast infections and for digestive health.

Two new products under its Amerifit Brands include Ovega-3 and BrainStrong, which both provide fatty acids. They also offer prenatal vitamins with DHA, powder to give toddlers and kids’ gummy versions. In addition to the supplements, Martek's life’sDHA is found in infant formula, and recently, in Minute Maid Pomegranate Blueberry Juice and Horizon Organic Milk Plus life's DHA.
