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.

Love them. I would definitely purchase the product . I highly recommend. Its hard to find the one I like and thank goodness for free samples. I can try before I buy the full ones.
Great product. No fishy burns and smaller soft gel size. Labels on this line of products are actually made from stone! AOR is a higher quality supplement company that focuses on efficacy which is important to me.
This product was fine. Took it in the morning with my multi vitamin. Didn't notice anything different. I like that this is a vegan omega 3 option. I would consider purchasing this supplement.
I like that there is a vegan omega-3 product available, however find it very difficult to support this product as it is made with palm product ("ascorbyl palmitate"), responsible for a large contribution to rainforest and habitat destruction (especially for orangutans, etc.). I was unable to find anywhere on this packaging that they sustainably source their palm products, and as such I refuse to purchase their products and support their business. I will be seeking elsewhere for a vegan omega.
I enjoyed taking these for they did not have a fishy taste before and after consumption. They were easy to consume. I might consider switching to this soon.
