Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that has an especially important role in brain health. It is not synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained from dietary sources. These long chain polyunsaturated fats play a vital role in the cell membranes of neurons and other cells in the body, helping increase cellular communication.
AOR’s Omega 3 is sustainably sourced from the oil-rich algae Schizochytrium, making it an excellent choice for vegans. It also contains the active, converted forms of EPA and DHA for optimal efficacy. Most marine EPA and DHA do not originate with fish, but accumulate up the marine food chain from sources like microalgae, so we are just going straight to the source and leaving animals out of the equation. Non-algae based vegan omega 3 sources such as chia, or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients such as cyanogenic glycosides which can interfere with mineral absorption.

I took this product within a few days. I can't say I noticed an improvement in how I felt as the sample only included a few softgels. I do like the quality of ingredients. I would have more to review on if I taken it longer perhaps. If the price is reasonably comparable to other brands I would for sure try buying a bottle and trying it out.
I'm so pleased with this product. It is difficult to find vegan supplements. I was recommended fish oil supplements but I do not eat fish . This is a great alternative. It is really easy to take and comes in a soft gel cap that isn't made out of gelatin. It is too early to tell whether it has improved my health or energy yet, but I plan to buy a full size bottle and take them regularly. Great product.
The sample only had about 6 capsules so it was hard to see any results. I did love the fact that this omega 3 product is vegan friendly, which is very hard to find.
My review and opinion of this supplement is pretty neutral as I did not feel the sample size was large enough to give me a true sense as to whether or not the product was having any positive, or negative, effect on my health and wellness. I can say that I was very impressed with the ingredients and quality and purported purity of the ingredients used and the innovation from AOR in creating a Vegan Omega 3 supplement. I can also say that the pills were a little on the larger side but this was not an issue for me as I am used to swallowing vitamins and have no issue with larger sized capsules/pills but it could be an issue for some people. Also did not notice any digestive upset from taking these and of course no fishy aftertaste or anything like that since they are from Vegan sources. All in all it seems to be a promising supplement and very convenient for Vegans but I just did not feel the sample size was large enough for me to comment on what is the most important aspect of taking a vitamin/supplement and that is whether or not I feel it had a beneficial effect on my health and wellness.
I’m a big believer in vitamins and because I’m vegetarian Omegas are really important for me. I really enjoyed these vitamins, both in size and ease of use. Will buy again!
