What is Omega 3?

Omega 3 is one of the ‘essential fats’ best known for being good for your joints, brain and heart. When most people think of Omega 3 sources, or sources of fat, they think of fish. We’re pleased to inform you that there are vegan sources of Omega 3 too!

 

EPA and DHA

Omega 3 supplements are a great addition for a healthy diet, however, until they discover Vegetology, many of our customers don’t realise that sources of Omega 3 can be vegan or vegetarian. Our vegetarian Opti3 contains EPA and DHA, the correct forms of omega-3s for use by the body and the same as those found in fish. How much Omega 3 do you need? Well, Opti3 is actually higher strength than most fish-based supplements! A bottle of Opti3 saves at least 35 fish compared to an equivalent bottle of fish oil omega-3!

Opti3 versus Flaxseed Oil

When it comes to foods high in Omega 3, there is no comparison! Flaxseed provides the body with omega-3 in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). ALA is not equivalent to DHA or EPA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted to EPA in order to be effective, but this conversion rate is incredibly low.

Opti3: vegetable-sourced Omega-3 fatty acids

Oily fish is probably one of the most well known Omega 3 foods and are undoubtedly a rich source of omega-3 EPA & DHA, but this is actually due to their diet of algae. Our exclusive Opti3 complex is a novel combination of algae and plant-based ingredients to provide the body with proven levels of EPA & DHA together with a dose of vegan Vitamin D3.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Opti3?
Opti3 is a 100% natural, high strength EPA & DHA supplement with an added dose of our plant Vitamin D3. Opti3 is designed to offer the benefits of Omega-3, without the need for Fish or any animal ingredients. It is sold in monthly packs of 60 capsules (2 per day).
I’m a vegan, can I take Opti3?
Yes. Opti3 is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. We have registered Opti3 with the Vegan and Vegetarian Societies. We are proud to display both society logos on our product bottle and website.
Is Opti3 good for my kids to take?
Opti3 is great for kids! We are always being contacted by happy parents telling us how much improvement in concentration and attentiveness they see in their children when taking Opti3. There is a great deal of evidence linking Omega-3 with brain function and development. We strongly recommend giving Opti3 to your kids.
How does Opti3 compare to Flaxseed Oil?
There really is no comparison. Flaxseed Oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids in the far less effective form of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). ALA is not equivalent to EPA and DHA in its biological effects, and needs to be converted in order to be effective. Unfortunately this conversion is very low. Flaxseed oil does not provide the body with sufficient levels of Omega-3.
What are the benefits of Omega-3?
There are many reported benefits of taking Omega-3 supplements. This includes hearth health, increased alertness and attentiveness, lowering of cholesterol, eye health and benefits to various diseases and ailments.
How should Opti3 be stored?
Storing in the fridge is ok, but you’re right they do become more brittle which means if rattled a lot afterwards, they may burst. Storing anything in the fridge extends their freshness, so does no harm. The main issue is storing in the fridge and then travelling somewhere with them rattling around in a bag: they may burst.

  • Je suis tellement contente d'avoir découvert Vegetology ! Je consomme quodiennement Opti3 et Vitashine et je dois dire que je pète la forme ! Je ne pensais pas être aussi carencée mais je vois la différence. J'ai choisi ces suppléments parce que je suis en total accord avec les valeurs de la marques qui après recherches ne sont pas que de simples arguments marketing. Merci aux fondateurs d'avoir investi dans ce projet ! Je vous souhaite une bonne continuation ! P.S : Ce serait super d'avoir des suppléments dédiés exclusivement aux ongles et cheveux !

  • After a year or so of becoming a vegetarian, I had a check-up and my triglycerides were high. The doctors told me it was unusual for a vegetarian to have this condition and the only thing they advised me that I wasn't already doing was to take more omega-3. I found this product and I took them for 6 months and my triglycerides went from almost 300 to little over 100. Another thing: you can take the whole capsules, chew it or pierce it and add the oil to food. It tastes like seafood grown on the rocks (e.g. barnacle). I liked it.

  • Such a great product, vegan and plant-based (instead of artificial), and at such a great value, especially with the bundle offers. Thanks Vegetology! -`

  • Love this brand. I did some research and I have tried a few other brands too. Vegetology in my opinion is the best. They are one of the only brands to use a vegan D3 source, registered by Vegan Society, use pure ingredients; designed and researched by vegans who are professionals in their field; offer fantastic discounts and their multiple vitamin has all the essential ingredients I have researched. Would highly recommend them. I use both the Omega Opti 3 and Veg Vit

  • Very fast shipping, but sadly the capsules are too big for me to swallow.

  • This product is a blessing for we vegetarians/vegans who want a high strength supplement that contains clean dosages EPA & DHA and will actually have a positive effect on health. In a number of weeks I've noticed a drastic change in my skin that was displaying signs of an omega3 deficiency. It's back to normal, with no dryness or irritation and my eyes are no longer burning. I also feel more energised. This supplement is proving its worth. Keep up the good work Vegetology in sustaining an ethical practice and quality product!

    Lia
  • Happy to have found this product. It doesn't have a bad taste. It's good that it contains both DHA and EPA as well as vit. D. Oh and I want to say that we're vegan haha just to conform to the stereotype.

  • I have been using it for 4 months now and I feel my mind is more calm and I am less depressed. I have been suffering from depression for many years now. I did not have any source of vegan DHA omega 3 in the 7 years I have been a vegan. I am so glad I came across a Vegan Dietician online who told me the importance of it. I have been eating flax and chia seeds thinking they were enough only to find out they only have ALA form of Omega 3 which is not effectively converted to DHA form. I take only 1 capsule a day and get the daily required amount, when I feel a bit agitated I take another one at a separate time. Really glad this product exists, it has no weird taste and no allergic reaction for me. Their customer care service is also excellent, I strongly recommend them.

  • I searched for years and this is the one product that has everything I looked for and never found in other brands. To start, it's 100% vegan and Non-Gmo. But what really stands out is that it actually has EPA & DHA. All of the other vegetarian/vegan Omega 3 Supplements I have come across before only had ALA. I'll explain the importance of this below. What I came to learn was that ALA is plantbased and available in many forms through different seeds & nuts i.e Hemp Seeds. Your body is able to convert ALA into EPA, and your body can then synthesize DHA out of EPA. The problem is that most healthy individuals bodies simply can't synthesize EPA & DHA fast enough to provide an adaquate supply. So in conclusion, it's clear that while other vegetarian brands will be labeled "Omega 3 Supplement" They actually just contain ALA and don't provide what you're truly looking for and need. But Opti3 does have exactly what you need. That's why it's the only brand I'll ever buy.

  • I have been taking opti3 since almost 7 years. I am a food scientist and can testify that the science behind the benefits of DHA+EPA supplementation is strong. I am a vegetarian, and feel uneasy about killing fish to give my brain, eyes and inflammation markers a boost. The solution is of course opti3, which is both economically and ecologically a great option. Their great customer service has always answered my questions promptly. I was happy to find out from them that they use no chemical solvents to extract the oil from the algae, so one can be sure there are no nasty residues in the product. I can also testify that their deliveries to Germany arrive quickly and in perfect condition. As a food chemist, I highly recommend opti3!

  • Relunctant to buy as this is an international order for me. But, my concerns have been relieved. Although this product took awhile to receive, I think nearly two weeks, it was well worth the wait. I've looked all over Amazon for a plant based omega 3 supplement, but nearly all had some form of caramel color, including Nordic Naturals. If they didn't have caramel color, they just didn't have the potency of Opti 3. We've enjoyed this product, and have been impressed with no after taste as some of these supplements produce. I love the 3 for 2 deal as well. The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is the shipping process takes so long. (Sorry I'm picky about that).

  • Perfect! I feel better since I started taking them and I think they smell good haha! Thank you so much for offering a vegan alternative to omega 3 supplements. :) These have the highest level of DHA and EPA I have seen so far from algae. I highly recommend them to anyone!

    Audrey
  • I'm so happy this product is on the market. We all need omega 3 supplements as our food is not providing it anymore (or not enough) and this product being vegan is just great ! It's good price-quality with fast delivery. I recommend all vegans and non-vegans to buy this product instead of cruel and disgusting fish oil alternatives.

    Excellent Vegan Omega 3 Product
  • Great product.

    Kevin S.
  • I am glad this product is on the market as i have a fish and shellfish allergy and taking even the most premium fish oil makes my throat choke up and i feel terrible for days. I have tried 2 other vegan brands and both i did not feel good on, also the after taste was quite bad. Opti3 on the other hand i have seen no negatives and i have noticed some of the inflammation in my hands has subsided. Will buy again!
