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.

Absolutely loved this product. Easy to swallow and no side effects afterwards. I have a very sensitive stomach so I was a bit apprehensive taking this at first. I did feel a difference taking this product and have purchased it since trying. I would recommend it to anyone. Love that this product is Vegan as I am a Vegetarian.
It's hard to say if it worked any different than my usual supplement. However, that being said, I had no side effects and felt good about taking them due to their Vegan nature. I am starting to consume a more vegetarian diet and would continue to take these as my primary Omega-3 supplement.
I really liked these omega supplements. They're vegan and did not leave any hint of an odor. I will likely buy these to better understand how they work with my body as the sample size was too small for anything to be noticeable.
They seem to be good. I'm not able to judge on their efficiency, but I like the product and what they seem to offer. If they to ''deliver'' their promises, it's a good product!
First and foremost - I love the clean smell. I only tried few softgels, however, so I wasn't able to notice any difference (yet) with my cognitive ability. Saying that, and the fact that the product is vegan and has no aftertaste, I am planning to purchase a regular size pack and enjoy all its benefits.
