Benefits of omega3
· promote cardiovascular health
· improve eye health
· reduce liver fat
· Relieve joint pain and discomfort
· promote healthy brain growth during pregnancy
We are part of the IGEM ompetition, and we are investigating the feasibility of converting Omega-6 to Omega-3 using enzymes produced by transgenic technology to further enrich the nutritional source of omega3. At the same time, we also pay attention to the sustainable development and environmental protection of related industries
