Omega-3 supplement for vegans & vegetarians
With DHA & EPA from plant sources
No fish oil or animal ingredients (vegan softgels)
Featuring life’sOMEGA™ algal oil
Superior source of omega-3s compared to flaxseed and other plant sources
Vitacost Whole Food Vegan EPA-DHA is a plant-based omega-3 supplement suitable for vegans and vegetarians. This unique, animal product-free formula features two well-known essential fatty acids—DHA and EPA—from life’sOMEGA™, a high-quality marine algal oil delivering the same omega-3 nutrition found in fish oil and krill oil, without animal-derived ingredients.
Unlike other plant-based omega-3 options, such as flaxseed (which contains ALA, an essential fatty acid that’s converted to DHA and EPA by the body), this supplement is a superior alternative, supplying DHA and EPA directly in ready-to-use form.
It also provides a more sustainable source of omega-3 nutrition than oils obtained from wild-caught fish or krill.
What are DHA and EPA?
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are omega-3 fatty acids required for normal function of many body processes; yet, they can’t be created by the body and must be obtained through diet. While eating fish is considered an ideal way to obtain DHA and EPA, they can also be found in plant sources, such as marine algae, or obtained through the conversion of ALA (found in flaxseed, walnuts, soybeans and some plant oils).
How do DHA and EPA support health?
EPA and DHA are well known for their cardioprotective properties, their ability to maintain healthy cognitive function, their potential to support healthy moods and their positive impact on joint comfort and flexibility*
Higher blood levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids including EPA and DHA are associated with a healthier mood*
