Why should we use fish oil capsules if there is a healthy and vegetable alternative? The only reason fish contain omega 3 is because they eat omega 3 containing algae. So if we use algae oil capsules (which are grown in a basin and therefore do not burden the oceans) is that not a much better idea?!!!
Oily fish is rich in the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Fish ingest these fatty acids by eating algae that contain EPA and DHA. However, algae oil can also serve as a source of these fatty acids for humans. The algae oil in this product comes from the micro-algae Schizochytrium sp. Because both the algae oil and the capsule are vegetable, unlike fish oil, it is suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans. And for everyone who cares about the environment, the oceans and fish.
