Why Organic Omega 3 is Better
Omega-3 is type of polyunsaturated fatty acid that plays many important roles in your body, including boosting immunity, heart and brain function. While fish contain high levels of omega 3, they actually obtain this from the algae they consume and also come with the risk of containing high levels of mercury. While only the top brands filter out mercury and other impurities, the far safer option is to choose organic omega derived from plants. They are not only more sustainably produced but also easier to digest. While flaxseed is a great source of organic omega 3 it contains mostly ALA rather than DHA. As such, the best all natural, organic, vegan Omega 3 is produced from algae or sea berry (sea buckthorn). Sea berry in particular is very rich in DHA and EPA and so has a more complete and well-rounded Omega 3 profile.
