#holistic Nordic Naturals Algae Omega – Vegetarian Omega-3 Supplement for Eye Health, Heart Health, and Optimal Wellness, 120 Soft Gels

Nordic Naturals Algae Omega - Vegetarian Omega-3 Supplement for Eye Health, Heart Health, and Optimal Wellness, 120 Soft Gels

  • VEGETARIAN/VEGAN OMEGA-3 SUPPLEMENT - Many assume that omega-3s have to come from fish oil, but that is not the case. Nordic Naturals Algae Omega is the ideal vegetarian alternative to fish oil: it is certified vegetarian by the American Vegetarian Association, and it is also suitable for vegans. It is made from microalgae, the original source of marine omega-3s.
  • UNIQUE COMBINATION OF ALGAE OMEGAS - Microalgae offers a plant-based source of beneficial marine omega-3s EPA and DHA without the use of fish. Nordic Naturals Algae Omega is one of very few algae oils with significant amounts of EPA. While most algae oils are short on EPA, Algae Omega's unique combination of EPA and DHA is a pure, safe, and effective source of both of these essential fatty acids.
  • BENEFITS OF DHA AND EPA - Our Algae Omega supports normal vision, heart health, positive mood, and immunity. Omega-3s have been shown to promote healthy immune function and metabolism, and to support healthy blood sugar levels. They also support the body's ability to respond to stress in a healthy way. Essential fatty acids like DHA and EPA promotes cardiovascular and respiratory function, supports brain health, and vision health.*
  • NON-GMO VERIFIED - Nordic Naturals has always been at the forefront of sustainable and ethical practices in the natural products industry. Since our founding, we have been committed to using only non-GMO ingredients. Algae Omega is also hexane free, gluten free, and dairy free, with no artificial colors or preservatives. We use sustainably sourced, natural ingredients to create supplements with all the things you need and no fillers.

    THE sustainable alternative to fish oil, February 12, 2017

    I really can’t tell whether this stuff does any good, but scientific theory says that it should. DHA and EPA are the starting materials for anti-inflammatory hormones called resolvins. A recent study reports that fish oil supplements (containing DHA and EPA) help prevent asthma attacks (and, logically, should help prevent other inflammatory maladies). BUT fish oil is extracted from fish, usually those at the bottom of the food chain that are “not economically important.” They’re not??? They support all of the other, larger fish in the ocean, and are tremendously important! The fish oil industry should be banned outright in order to save the oceans.

    As it turns out, EPA and DHA aren’t made by fish. They’re made by microalgae that start the food chain. All of the fish rely on this source, and tenaciously hold onto whatever EPA and DHA they consume. That’s why “fatty fish” like salmon are recommended as a good source of omga-3’s, of which EPA and DHA are the most important. BUT: we don’t have to kill the fish! As Nordic Naturals has done with this product, but not their others, one can grow the algae in bio-reactors on land, and extract the oils from them directly. It’s not only sustainable, but the microalgae are a CO2 sink!

    NOTE: the omega-3 in flax oil is not EPA or DHA, it’s linolenic acid. To be functional, it must be converted into EPA and DHA, BUT humans can’t do that conversion EXCEPT during pregnancy/lactation and during fetal development and nursing. If we have a good source of linolenic acid as adults, we can ensure that our children get the necessary DHA and EPA — not only for anti-inflammatory hormones, but also, and primarily, for their retinas and neurons. In the good old days, we got our linolenic acid from meat, because our animals were grass-fed, and leaves (including grass) are rich in linolenic acid. Now, with feedlots and grain-fed meat, we are woefully deficient in these essential fatty acids.

    I apologize for the lecture, but I believe that this is really important on many levels.

    Avoid if Pregnant, Otherwise Taste Like Kelp, Easy to take, April 7, 2017

    This is one of a few different Omega 3 supplements I purchased recently. This and the one by Amala Vegan were the only ones allegedly sourced from Algae, so those are the two I’m going to be comparing for this review.

    So this one, the dose size is 2 pills. The pills are about half an inch long and a little more then a quarter of an inch wide, which is slightly larger then Amala’s, but I swallowed both of them at the same time without any difficulty. These, when I opened them up, they smell like seaweed and they taste like kelp on my tongue. Which I thought was a huge improvement over Amala’s, which smelled like fish and tasted like Tuna. And since I wasn’t always the vegetarian I am today, I find that very interesting. And at this point, I’m planning on passing Amala’s off to my hubby, who is not a vegetarian, and won’t really care about the taste or…whatever may be causing the differences in taste.

    The dose of omega 3’s is higher in these, which is good, but it is still below all of the therapeutic uses for Omega 3. So if you are using this for anything other then a dietary supplement, like say for depression, or cancer, or whatever….it’s really a rather long list of things Omega 3/6 supplementation can benefit actually…Mayo clinic’s website has a great rundown of the conditions and the doses, and you can up the number of pills on these accordingly. Of course, that will get pricey. For depression, you’d need to take about 4 of these pills a day. Taking more on these is an option because it doesn’t have vitamin E in it, which is something Amala does add to theirs, and because vitamin E has some harmful side effects if you exceed the recommended daily allowance, medically it’s not really safe to take multiple doses of their product to get the omegas up to a therapeutic level, so that’s one that I recommend you just take if you need supplemental omegas in your diet.

    My one note of caution on these is for pregnant women. These have Rosemary extract in them, so if you are pregnant, or planning on becoming so, this isn’t something you should be using because there is a possibility it can stimulate your uterus and lead to miscarriage. That applies to anything oral with rosemary extract actually. So just an FYI. But if you’re not pregnant, I don’t see any reason why these wouldn’t work well for you. I’m not experiencing any unpleasant aftertaste like I was yesterday with Amala’s, so I think these are generally pretty non-offensive, and this company has an established track record in the supplement industry. If you don’t want to taste seaweed, or want something that will be cheaper for a therapeutic dose, you could try flax oil supplements…that’s what’s up next on my to-be-tried list…Best of luck to you 🙂

    I’m someone who suffers from poor memory. So far, this is the only thing that has helped with my sharpness. It took about 3 weeks for me to feel anything, and I even had close friends make comments on my memory so I know this stuff works, but definitely need to be consistent. I noticed once my memory was working well I gained the confidence back and then I stopped taking them… And slowly started back on the amnesia track. It’s important to be consistent and patient when taking them.
