Vegetology C I’m not a vegetarian or vegan so shall I just take fish oil?
Vegetology There are well reported downsides to fish oil. Fish may contain harmful levels of contaminants and toxins including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. In addition to the safety issues, there are growing concerns about diminishing fish stocks in our seas, largely due to unsustainable fishing practices. We recommend you take advice from the Food and Drug Administration about the latest safety guidelines associated with consuming fish. Opti3 offers an alternative that is 100% free from contaminants and toxins.
Vegetology C Food allergies and Opti3
Vegetology Opti3 is free from gluten, wheat, dairy and sugar-based ingredients.

Opti3 comes from Sunflower Oil. Each Opti3 capsule contains >0.1% Vitamin E, so a maximum of 0.8mg. It is added as an antioxidant to protect the Omega-3 oil.
