Not only learning the health knowledge, I also received a magazine and a bottle of O-Seed for free as a Early bird door gift. Excited about it. It really worth the ticket price. =) 

What is O-SEED? 

OSEED capsules are a wholesome source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids ALA to support heart and brain health. They are made from chia seeds and kiwi fruit seeds.

It promotes good health in these ways:
• A safe and convenient source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). 
• Made from a unique combination of chia seeds and kiwi fruit seeds, both excellent sources of ALA.
• Has more omega-3s than omega-6s (healthier).
• High in antioxidants.
• Excellent source of natural vitamin C.
• Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
• Does not contain animal products, byproducts or derivatives, starch, gluten, preservatives, yeast, wheat, corn or dairy.

What benefits does it have over fish oil supplements?

It has the following benefits:
• Rich in ALA, an omega-3 essential fatty acid found ONLY in plants.
• No fishy smell and aftertaste.
• No risk of toxic contaminants.
• No unpleasant side effects associated with fish oil supplements, e.g. diarrhea, abdominal bloating, nosebleeds.
• Fish oil may interact with medications, e.g. blood thinners, aspirin and high blood pressure drugs.
• An overdose of fish oil can lead to increased risk of stroke and cancer.
• Will not deplete vitamin E.
• Zero cholesterol.
• Lower in calories. Each capsule has 2 calories. One tablespoon of cod liver oil has 122 calories.
• Has healthful antioxidants, phytochemicals and polysaccharides.
• Eco-friendly. Does not use blubber from endangered species of whales and seals. Dolphins may end up in fishermen’s nets with tuna, which is used in fish oil supplements.
