  • Cardiovascular Support

    Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain cholesterol and triglycerides levels that are already in normal range.11 Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. 12

  • Brain Booster

    Omega-3 fatty acids, and especially DHA, have been shown to play a positive role in memory and cognitive health. 3

Super Pure, Cruelty-Free and Sustainably Produced Omega-3 Fatty Acids Made from Plant-Based Algal Oil

200mg DHA and 108mg EPA Plus Green Tea Extract for Free Radical Protection

Omega-3 fatty acids are pretty awesome—they have been shown to promote cardiovascular health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.1,2 High concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids are found in the brain and appear to have a supportive role in memory and cognition.3 One serving of Vegan Omega-3 provides 300mg of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

Until now, fish oil from deep sea fish has been the go-to source for Omega-3 fatty acids. But this is neither sustainable nor a happy situation for our fish friends. There’s also the mercury issue.4 Water pollution exposes fish to toxins, which can get passed to you unless your fish oil supplement goes through a strict decontamination process.

Vegans typically have settled for a poor source of Omega-3: flaxseed oil. Flax is full of ALA, which the body can’t easily convert to the Omega-3 fatty acids that people most need--DHA and EPA.5 Flaxseed oil Omega-3 supplements are kind of like the knock-off Ray-Bans at the Patpong night market in Bangkok--they might look good, but you can’t expect much.

Fish get their DHA and EPA by eating tiny plants floating around in the ocean—marine algae—making fish a sort of Omega-3 middleman. Why not go directly to the plant source? Enter algal oil—an extract of marine algae that can be produced sustainably and is naturally rich in DHA and EPA. Algal oil has been shown to help maintain healthy levels of DHA.6

Nested Naturals Vegan Omega-3 is proudly made from vegan algal oil. Our marine algae is grown sustainably on a farm, not harvested from the ocean, which allows us to tightly control the purity and quality. It’s a win-win. You get a boost of pure Omega-3 fatty acids and the fish swim free.

Each capsule includes 200 mg of DHA and 108 mg of EPA. We add green tea leaf extract to protect the Omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation.7-9 We are super stoked about Vegan Omega-3 for your health and for the oceans. Won’t you join our fish-free Omega-3 revolution?
