If you're looking for plant based omegas you've come to the right place. For all of our plant based friends out there of vegan, vegetarian or other varieties research has shown considerable benefits of the plant based lifestyle. We’re talking about lower rates of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease certain cancers and obesity to name a few. However the problem still exists of how to get enough EPA and DHA normally found in seafood in a plant based diet. Multiple organizations, including the USDA in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Heart Association, recommend consuming at least 8 oz of seafood per week, especially fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, and tuna.

The benefits of EPA and DHA are significant and research consistently shows that DHA and EPA are some of the strongest natural promoters of a healthy cardiovascular system and supporters of healthy immune function.3  Additional benefits include musculoskeletal  support, cognitive health, and skin health and vitality amongst others. For more details on the benefits see our article “The Who, What, When, Where & Why of Omega-3 Fish Oil”.

So how does a plant based person get enough EPA and DHA? Supplementing EPA and DHA via a plant based source is a good idea and EPA and DHA derived from natural algae instead of fish or krill is a great option. Studies so far have suggested that it’s bioavailability and subsequent health benefits are comparable to that of fish based EPA+DHA sources. To read more on this check out our article "Hey, I’m Plant Based But I Need EPA and DHA".  For some great plant based omega products please see below.
