Description

Plant-Based Omega-3
Heart Healthy Alternative to Fish Oil and Krill Oil
  • Vegan, Sustainable Source
  • No Fishy Aftertaste
  • Gluten-Free & GMO-Free
Ovega-3 is an all-vegetarian/vegan DHA + EPA Omega-3 supplement from a safe and natural plant source (algae); not fish. With 500mg of total omega-3s, Ovega-3 provides the same heart healthy benefits of traditional fish oil but without the unplesant fishy aftertaste associated with some fish oils.* Most people think that fish are the original source of DHA and EPA, but it's really the algae they eat that naturally contain these important omega-3s. Ovega-3 has gone directly to the source and bypassed the fish. You can be sure that Ovega-3 is free of PCBs and mercury because it is sourced from plants that are grown outside of the ocean. As one of the highest quality omega-3 supplements available, Ovega-3 is also from a sustainable source and does not deplete the ocean's supply of fish.

So far so good. I don't have a taste or a repeat of a fish taste like the fish oil. Haven't taken it long enough to see if I feel a difference

This plant-based omega-3 supplement has a lot of things going for it!
I am extremely impressed with every aspect of this plant-based omega-3 supplement! Most people associate omega-3 with fish and krill oil, but those animals get it from the algae plants that they eat. This omega-3 supplement is made from algae that is grown in FDA inspected stainless steel fermenters, and so you don't have to worry about the potential high levels of mercury and PCBs that has recently been controversial with oils that are made from wild caught fish. According to their website, the source of DHA in this product (which is the primary omega-3 in this product and the most important form of omega-3) is the brand "life'sDHA," which is the exact same brand of DHA that is used in over 99% of infant formulas in the United States, and so it has been tested thoroughly! As apposed to some fish oil, this product produces no unpleasant burps or aftertaste whatsoever either. Also, please note that krill oil (which also is supposed to avoid those unpleasantness's) has extremely low...that is practically useless...levels of omega-3 (especially DHA) -- and so please compare the supplement facts labels if you take or are thinking about taking krill oil! By the way, flax seed oil, which is sometimes seen as the vegetarian alternative to fish and krill oil, has 0% DHA and 0% EPA (which is the next most important omega-3). This product is simply perfect in terms of ingredients and quality!
