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.

Overall I didn't like the after taste and it was expensive too. I have preferred my old brand due to the way I feel after having it and it is cheaper as well.
I had not received the supplement, and therefore—I cannot write this review at the present moment. That being said, the capsules from my experience are useful in maintaining good nail and hair health.
When looking for supplements I have a hard time finding Vegan options, so I was thrilled when offered the chance to try these. The soft gel is easy to take and wasn't hard to digest.
I took these as indicated on the bottle and didn’t notice any obvious effects due to the limited amount, however it was a good little pill to pop. Slides down easy. The potential health benefits are great, too.
I enjoyed this product, I did feel good when taking it, however, I am not a supplement type of person. I loved that it was vegan and came from a sustainable company who's morals and ethics align with mine. However I would not purchase it as I do not take supplements.
