Info: 60 Vegetarian Soft Gels (625 mg)
Nordic Naturals Algae Omega 3 is certified as 100% Vegetarian by the America Vegetarian Association.
You've likely heard by now that omega-3 fatty acids have many benefits for maintaining good health in adults and are especially valuable for pregnant or nursing women to take to pass along to their offspring, because they help support cognitive and other brain function, especially during development. But the most common rich source of omega-3 in supplements comes from fish, which you might not want to ingest, especially if you're a vegan. This is an ideal alternative: it's plant-based, made from marine-based microalgae, yet has a comparable amount of EPA and DHA as many (non-concentrated) forms of fish oil supplements, to provide pure, safe, and effective amounts of both those essential fatty acids.
