To create the world's most sustainable and high-quality health supplements. For you and the planet.
All the benefits of fish oil, without the environmental impact. We don’t cut corners or stress already fragile aquatic ecosystems to produce our products.
In 2020, a routine check-up threw us a surprise. Despite being young and healthy, Prateek’s cholesterol levels were higher than expected for someone his age. To make things worse, we discovered we both were at a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases due to family history.
Add that to everything else going on in 2020 and our health became our top priority. So we optimized our diets and ramped up our exercise. But despite living a “picture perfect” healthy lifestyle, it still wasn’t enough.
Our doctors recommended fish oil supplements. Being vegetarians, we weren't too excited about the idea of gulping down capsules of oil harvested from captive fish. We didn't feel like it was fair that we had to choose between our health and our morals.
We knew nature had to have a better solution.
That's when we discovered that there were vegan omega-3 oil supplements on the market that could offer a sustainable substitute to fish oil.
But we were disappointed again.
We found that the majority of these capsules contained carrageenan, which is known to cause stomach inflammation. Realizing that there was nothing on the market that truly fit our needs, we decided to create our own product. We set out to create something pure, sustainable, and good for the environment.
And that’s how Calgee was born. Calgee is a mission-driven health and wellness company dedicated to leveraging its presence to positively impact the environment.
Staying true to our commitment to the planet, we decided to join 1% For The Planet on Day 1, and we are committed to joining the B-Corp movement in the near future.
