My new favorite DHA
Glad I found this stuff. I don't give a flip about it being vegetarian, I just like the fact that it contains no contaminants like mercury or PCBs.

These are very easy to swallow, have no fishy taste and no aftertaste. My kids, 8 and 10 can take them too. Hard to tell if they are effective because they don't treat anything specific but I know intuitively I feel good when I take them.

Good non-gelatin option
The gelatin could be made of pig fat, or from animals slaughtered by blunt trauma or electrocution, which makes the gelatin capsule haram (impermissible) for Muslims (and Jews). This product does not seem to have such ingredients, according to the packaging.

DHA for Vegetarians!
It is not easy to find DHA Omega 3 oil that is vegetarian. Algae [whodathunkit] based and Swanson seems to be a price leader here as well.

I started reading the book "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. He says we should always take omega 3 products that are made right from algae, instead of fish oils since fish oils can become rancid, and that's why you have the fish burps. So I'm glad Swanson has this product.

I take this vitamin instead of the fish oil. It is much higher in EPA and DHA and there is no fish involved; it comes directly from the source.

My ophthalmologist recommended that I take Omega capsules but I am allergic to fish. He then suggested Ovega capsules which is vegetarian based. I tried several drug stores and health food stores and could not find them. I searched on the web and found several places that carried them but Swanson's had the best price and delivery of them all.
Thank you Swanson's for carrying the item I needed and having a shipment schedule so I can receive them regularly.

After seeing an episode of Dr. Oz about Omega Oils I decided to add this one to my daily supplements. Figured it isn't going to hurt and it can only help.

Cut out the middle man and eliminate worries about contaminants from fish. Fish have omega 3s from the algae they eat so... I have tried other algae oils, this is best so far and Swanson's has good price.

Awesome fish oil alternative
I really love the Ovega-3. It is a great way to get all of the benefits of fish oil from a pure vegetarian source.

Vegan dha is the best source
I've been getting these from another online retailer, and it's great to see these here!
Algae is where fish get their omega dha from, and there's problem with harvesting it, or contamination.
I actually have more focus from taking these- I didn't expect it, but find after distractions I still do the first task on my list!
I hope to see more vegan items from Swansons!
