One question I am often asked is, "Does OmegaOil contain any fish oil?" Because of the association between omega-3s and fish, I wanted to take a moment to discuss the topic.
Let me start by saying the answer to the question above is no. OmegaOil does not contain any fish oil whatsoever. OmegaOil is made entirely from fruit and seed oils. Our ingredients are: olive, coconut, flax, sunflower, avocado, and chia oils. Nothing else. OmegaOil is a 100% vegan source of rich omega-3s.
Fatty fish are an excellent source of omega-3s. However, contrary to common belief, they are not the only nor even the most efficient way to get the omega-3s our bodies need. Fatty fish get their omega-3s through their diet, just like we do. Depending on their position in the oceanic food chain, fish consume omega-3s either by eating other, smaller fish or by eating the omega-3 source (microalgae) directly.
Like fish, we can either consume creatures that themselves consume omega-3s (fish), or we can consume the omega-3s directly. With OmegaOil, we have taken the latter approach and crafted an oil that uses the original vegan sources of omega-3s to provide essential fatty acids. Because OmegaOil is entirely plant-based, it has a light and delicious flavor that complements any dish you make.
Swapping your current cooking oils for OmegaOil is a simple way to get the omega-3s your body needs. No fish oil pills. No worrying about whether the salmon you're eating contains toxins. Just rich omega-3s from delicious, 100% plant-based whole foods.
