Better for You
Thrive® Algae Oil is a delicious and easy way to get
more good fat in your diet every day.
More of the Good
Thrive® Algae Oil has high levels of monounsaturated fat – the good fat that is more heat stable. Just one tablespoon gives you 13g of monounsaturated fat, the same amount you’d find in one whole avocado. This is about 25% more good fat than olive oil and avocado oil.
Thrive® Algae Oil also has low levels of saturated fat – with 75% less saturated fat than olive oil and avocado oil.
This product contains 14g total fat, with 0.5g saturated fat per serving; olive and avocado oil 2g per serving.
The type of fat we choose matters. Replacing saturated fat with sources of monounsaturated fat can help maintain heart health and healthy blood pressure*, as well as helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels*.
Today, we only get half the daily monounsaturated fat we need and consume almost twice the amount of saturated fat that is recommended. Thrive® Algae Oil helps to restore the balance. As a source of good monounsaturated fat, it is a simple and delicious swap that can replace sources of saturated fat to help maintain heart health.

*For those within normal range.

Thrive® Algae Oil’s Omega Facts
- 90% monounsaturated fat (omega-9 – the heat stable good fat)
- Less than 2 % polyunsaturated fat (omega-3 and omega-6 – contains no DHA or EPA)
Ideal Over High Heat
Not all types of cooking oil are ideal for high-heat cooking. The ideal cooking oil is high in monounsaturated fat (omega-9), the good fat that is more heat stable, and low in polyunsaturated fat (omega-3 and omega-6), which breaks down into toxins at low to medium temperatures.
Since Thrive® Algae Oil has the highest level of monounsaturated fat of any cooking oil, it is more stable at high temperatures and the right choice for sautéing, stir frying, searing, roasting and grilling.
