Algae Omega gives vegetarians and vegans a great way to meet their daily recommended serving of omega-3 EPA+DHA. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT 715 mg total omega-3s, for a higher daily dose than comparable vegetarian options Made from sustainably-sourced microalgae, the original source of marine omega-3 Non-GMO and hexane free Supports normal vision, heart and brain health and immunity* Certified 100% vegetarian by the American Vegetarian Association It can be difficult for vegans and vegetarians, especially, to get enough essential omega-3 fats from food alone. That's because vegetarian sources of omega-3 provide only ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), a precursor to omega-3s EPA and DHA, which our bodies can't efficiently convert to the EPA and DHA they need. To get just 500 mg omega-3 EPA+DHA, you'd have to eat a 5-ounce bag of flax or chia seeds. That's a lot of seeds to crunch! Nordic Naturals Algae Omega gives you that same beneficial amount in two, certified-vegetarian soft gels. Made from sustainably-sourced microalgae, our Algae Omega formula is non-GMO and hexane-free. And because it contains no fish or animal products, it's also suitable for vegans. THE HIGHEST STANDARDS Everything we make is non-GMO and third-party tested, surpassing the strictest international standards for purity and freshness. Certificates of Analysis are available for any product.
