Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that has an especially important role in brain health. It is not synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained from dietary sources. These long chain polyunsaturated fats play a vital role in the cell membranes of neurons and other cells in the body, helping increase cellular communication.
AOR’s Omega 3 is sustainably sourced from the oil-rich algae Schizochytrium, making it an excellent choice for vegans. It also contains the active, converted forms of EPA and DHA for optimal efficacy. Most marine EPA and DHA do not originate with fish, but accumulate up the marine food chain from sources like microalgae, so we are just going straight to the source and leaving animals out of the equation. Non-algae based vegan omega 3 sources such as chia, or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients such as cyanogenic glycosides which can interfere with mineral absorption.

I always take an Omega 3 supplement and was excited to try a new brand. I don’t prefer the soft gel format although most Omega 3s seem to be. I honestly am not sure if these worked as well as my usual brand but I like the fact that these are vegan.
I actually took these when I was sick and I wasn’t eating much and I can’t say that they necessarily helped because I was feeling really un well but I’m pretty sure they helped me! At least the feeling of getting some nutrients into my liking body sure made me feel better mentally!
I liked the Vegan Omega 2 Supplement. Since it was a pill there was nothing really to taste and I didn't try the pills long enough to notice any cognitive boosts or anything. I would be willing to try it longer.
great product. good taste and texture. really help with my mood. i have anxiety and always looking for peoduct that help. boosted my energy for sure which is important because i work out alot
SO glad this didn't come with a strong fishy aftertaste like so many, because its vegan! Awesome! Couldn't say for certain that it had a HUGE difference in cognitive function, as it would take longer than a few days worth of capsules to really tell, but I would purchase this, great source of omega-3.
