As a vegetarian I have for a number of years been concerned about my diet lacking Omega 3. Omega 3 has so many health benefits and getting enough when you’re a pretty strict vegetarian can be problematic. I was sent a box of Efamol EnvirOmega to try out, which is a vegetarian Omega 3 supplement.
Omega 3 is most commonly found in oily fish, which is why it is recommended that people eat two portions of oily fish a week and for strict vegetarians this can be a real problem, so I’m pleased to find a supplement suitable for vegetarians.
EnvirOmega Omega 3 supplements can help to maintain normal brain function (DHA) and are made from algal oil. The algal oil in the capsules is from a specially cultivated plant source and the capsules contain a combination of Omega 3 fatty acids from marine mirco algae which are a good vegetarian source of DHA.
EnvirOmega comes in a box of 60 and are fish-free algal oil capsules. Each capsule is about 1cm long and is a soft, liquid filled, easy to swallow tablet. They don’t taste of anything in particular and are quite pleasant to take. The dosage is one capsule per day for adults.
I have taken them for a couple of weeks now and I think it’s too early to tell if they’ve had much of an impact on me, I think if I took them consistently for a few months I’d hope to notice some improvements. But it is good to know that I’m doing what I can to ensure that my body and brain are receiving the Omega 3 they need to function.
If you’re a vegetarian and you’re concerned about your Omega 3 intake, then it’s worth having a look at what supplements are available. These Efamol Enviromega Fish Free Brain Capsules are currently available for £11.99 for a box of 60.
Note: I was sent a box of capsules free of charge for review purposes, all images and opinions are my own.
