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?

Your Questions, Our Answers

See the most popular questions asked about Vegan Omega-3.

Can a vegan Omega-3 supplement really be as effective as fish oil?

There’s no getting around it, fish oil offers the highest concentrations of DHA and EPA. But algal oil is pretty darn potent. This is not your grandma’s “feel good” but weak flax oil Omega-3 supplement. Algal oil is the new vegan kid on the block and there’s lots of excitement because it doesn’t require much processing and the potency is plenty high enough to deliver on daily Omega-3 recommendations. 6

How much Vegan Omega-3 should I take?

International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids recommends that adults get 500 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids daily. Each capsule of Vegan Omega-3 includes 200 mg of DHA and 108 mg of EPA. 13To increase your intake, you can always take two capsules. As always, we recommend consulting with your doctor about your body’s specific nutritional needs.

Is there caffeine in Vegan Omega-3?

The green tea extract in Vegan Omega-3 includes a teeny tiny amount of caffeine: less than or equal to 0.5 mg. To give you a couple points of comparison, there are 25 to 70 mg of caffeine in an 8 ounce cup of green tea and 150 to 200 mg in an 8 ounce cup of coffee.

Why are “Other Omega-3s” included in this formula?

The types of Omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to be most beneficial to people are DHA and EPA and they are predominant in the algal oil we use for Vegan Omega-3. Small amounts of the other varieties of Omega-3 (there are a total of 11 different types) are also present in algal oil.

How should I store my Vegan Omega-3?

All polyunsaturated fats are susceptible to damage from heat, including the algal oil in Vegan Omega-3. We include green tea extract in this formula to protect the algal oil and keep it shelf stable.9 That said, it’s a good idea to store your Vegan Omega-3 in the refrigerator.

We had been searching endlessly for a pure vegan Omega 3 that did not contain sunflower oil or carrageenan. After much research we discovered Nested Naturals. We are very impressed with this omega 3 product and the outstanding customer service we have received !
Florencia Verified Buyer 23/02/19
While the taste isn’t honestly the best, I’ve learned to welcome it. Despite it being somewhat off-putting, I can appreciate that the flavor being strong and detectable just means that the ingredients touted to be in the product are actually there, which is relieving. Since I started taking this supplement three weeks ago, I (genuinely) have more energy, which is a fantastic effect I didn’t expect. I never quite feel all the amazing things that most other supplement reviews usually say I can expect to feel, but Nested Naturals never even promised a boost in energy, and it’s there. I’ve been experiencing better sleep, meaning I get up in the middle of the night far less frequently. Because of having more restful sleep, I’ve become a morning person and I find myself waking with the sun. I’m more productive in the mornings now, and it sincerely helps my self-esteem. I’m not saying this is a miracle pill that solved my life—I’ve been trying for a while to become more of a morning person. It was really difficult before, I just woke up groggy in the mornings. After a week of supplementation, my boyfriend and I started noticing the difference. Suddenly, I was the one getting up first. For context, I don’t consume caffeine; my boyfriend drinks a large cup of coffee every morning. Long story short, for those out there debating whether or not to try it—give it a shot. It won’t fix everything, but it might help you get your mornings back. Even if you don’t experience that specific effect, your body might express its gratitude in another form.

My wife and I both like it

This is my favorite vegan omega-3 supplement. The capsules are carrageenan-free, which is awesome! There is little to no aftertaste. I would definitely recommend them to others.
Anonymous Verified Buyer 15/10/18
I have searched for very long and this is by far the best and most natural omega-3 supplement that I’ve ever came across! Works perfectly as well! Not to mention that the company has a great philosophy and truly cares about cutomers!

I am a vegetarian and love that there is a vegetarian omega 3 option instead of fish oil! :-)

I am very happy with this product. I have ordered it twice and will reorder again. It is one of the few supplements that don't use fillers. I just wish they would come out with more supplements that I could try.
Jana K Verified Buyer 13/06/17
So far, so good! I love that Nested Naturals offers a vegan omega-3 vitamin. I find it easy to take too (it's not a HUGE pill, like fish oil pills).
Regina W Verified Buyer 03/01/19
There is quite a fishy taste for a brief moment until I have swallowed it. Then I don’t give it another thought.
Anonymous Verified Buyer 01/01/19
Not sure of affects on body yet. Extremely strong smell of the sea, fishy.
