How it works?

Omega 3, also known as 'omega 3 fatty acids', is a type of fat needed for every cell in the body. The body cannot make omega 3 fats and therefore relies on getting it from your diet or omega 3 supplements.

Omega 3 works in direct balance with omega 6 fats. The ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 intake is 2:1, however, this isn't often achieved, with some modern diets having a ratio of only 15:1.

What is Vegan Omega 3

Fish get their omega 3 by eating algae, or because they eat other fish which have eaten algae. Omega 3 from fish can contain toxins, depending on what the fish has eaten, and has a high propensity of going rancid.

Algae is one of the main starting points for omega 3 into the food chain, so we cut out the middle man - or the middle fish - and ethically and sustainably source our Omega 3 directly from algae.

Why is it so good?

Omega 3 has a host of benefits from our heart to our eyes.

  • Heart Health: Supports the healthy function of your heart circulation and blood pressure.
  • Brain Health: Daily support for your brain health, memory and concentration.
  • Joint Health: Improves joint health and mobility.
  • Skin Health: Supports healthy skin through reducing inflammation and protecting your skin against age-related damage.
  • Vision Health: Essential daily support for your eye health and healthy vision.

How to get Omega 3 from your diet?

Oily fish such as salmon, mackerel or trout are the best source of Omega 3. Omega 3 can be found in a variety of plant food sources, however, it is difficult to gain sufficient quantities on a plant-based diet. Good plant sources of Omega 3 include flax seeds & flax seed oil, walnuts and walnut oil, chia seeds, hemp seeds and hemp oil.

Broccoli also contains omega 3, however, you would need to eat a lot of broccoli if you were going to rely on it as your primary source! As a result, a Vegan Omega 3 supplement is often the best choice for those who don't eat fish or follow a vegetarian or plant-based diet.
