Nutrova Complete Omega 3
100% Vegan Omega 3
Algae-derived, long-chain omega-3 in gelatin free cellulose capsules.
Omega-3 fats are essential nutrients, meaning that we have to get them from our diets. Plant-based foods contain the short chain omega-3 fat ALA which our body can convert to the long chain omega-3 that it needs, namely EPA and DHA. However, less than 5% of dietary ALA is converted to DHA, meaning that consuming even extremely high quantities of ALA-rich foods (flax seeds, etc.) may not get you to meet your recommended daily requirements of EPA and DHA.
EPA and DHA help regulate inflammation and must be consumed in proportion to omega-6 fats, which support inflammation. However, urban Indian diets contain 38 to 50 times as much omega-6, which can promote chronic inflammation.
DHA is additionally important because it is also an important structural part of our brain, eyes, nerves, and cells.
Nutrova Complete Omega 3 contains a vegan-sourced DHA, making it ideal for vegans, vegetarians who do not consume much dairy and individuals with fish allergies looking to increase their omega-3 intake.
Yes, DHA from marine algae is globally recognised as safe and without any side effects. However, pregnant or lactating women, people with medical conditions or people on chronic medication should first consult their doctors
It’s important to have at least 1 capsule daily, but we encourage you to have 2, given the minimal intake of this nutrient in a typical vegan or vegetarian diet.
Flaxseed oil is an excellent source of short-chain omega-3 fats (ALA), but does not contain DHA, the omega-3 fat that forms a part of our brain, nerves, eyes and skin. Our body can convert ALA to DHA, but in a very low conversion rate (only 1 to 4% gets converted). Directly consuming DHA is important in order to derive its proven health benefits.
It’s perfectly safe to consume for any duration you choose.
Yes, all our products are designed to work well both individually and together. For vegan individuals, we would recommend taking this product along with Nutrova Formula V, a multivitamin designed with nutrients that are otherwise low in vegan diets.
My doctor asked me to take omega-3 fats because he said it's essential for good health. But I'm allergic to fish and don't like flax seed oil so Nutrova's omega-3 was helpful!
After trying many supplements that didn?t suit me, I finally found Nutrova Omega 3 - finally a non-fish source (I?m allergic to fish) with no strange smell or taste. It has helped me meet my omega 3 need and kept me healthy :)
Taking Nutrova Omega 3 daily for the last two months has helped me improve my cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
