The only reason that fish contain Omega-3 is that fish eat algae. Therefore, the good fatty acids which we need originate in algae and not in fish.
So why should we swallow fish oil capsules? We can very easily remove this extra step in our Omega-3 food chain and obtain the fatty acids directly from algae instead of from fish.
Algae oil capsules have the following advantages compared to fish oil capsules:
- Sustainable choice: you are not contributing to over-fishing and unnecessary by-catch;
- 100% vegetable capsules, so also suitable for vegetarians and vegans;
- Where fish oil must be cleaned of harmful substances, algae oil is pure in and of itself.
If you choose algae oil capsules, you are not only opting for your own health but also for a healthy fish population and a healthy environment.
