Do Vegans get enough OMEGA 3?

Updated: Jan 31

Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid,that supports the health of the brain, the heart, joints and skin.


It is ESPECIALLY important in the development of YOUNG CHILDREN.


There are 3 types of Omega 3; ALA, EPA and DHA fatty acids.


Fish is widely advertised as an easy way to get the recommended daily amount of Omega 3.



So where do vegans get their Omega 3?


There are many vegan foods containing high levels of Omega 3 too, such as; walnuts, chia seeds and rapeseed oil.



HOWEVER,


a lot of these foods only contain ALA.


The ONLY vegan sources of EPA or DHA are seaweed and other algae, this can make it HARD to get the recommended daily amount.


Thankfully, there are many vegan omega 3 supplements available to keep you covered.


So, what is the best Vegan Omega supplement?


Ollie's picks:



  • AFFORDABLE

  • DOESN'T TASTE FISHY

  • FOR KIDS (3+) AND ADULTS

  • ORGANIC & NO ARTIFICIALS













  • EASY TO TAKE LIQUID DROPS

  • JUST 2ML PER DAY WILL PROVIDE 300MG OF EPA AND 600MG OF DHA

  • DOSE ADJUSTABLE, MAKING IT SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES












Is Vegan Omega as good as fish oils?


Consuming omega 3 from algae is the purest form available. Omega 3 originally comes from algae not fish, so using an algae based supplement is a healthier, kinder & more environmentally friendly option.


So no need to despair!


Vegans CAN get enough Omega 3 in their diet, even it means using a good supplement.


Lots of love Ollie xx
