Omega 3 of Fish Oil Vs Algae

Postby cacofonix » Thu Jan 29, 2009 6:49 am

Here's a detailed post of how a vegetarian discovered the Omega 3 from algae vs that from fish oil. Now, many folks who are veggies and are keen to have their dose of Omega 3 are reluctant to use fish oil, because, well, they are veggies. However, there are not too many good substitutes. This post is trying to assess whether Omega 3 from algae could be a good substitute. Nice post...

Ok, so the post doesn't exactly infer anything...so if anyone else here could provide their opinions /data on Omega 3 from algae vs that from fish oil, that could be great!

I wonder what algae tastes like? Don't people in Hawaii eat algae?

In all likelihood, microalgae oils do approximately the same thing that fish oil does, since fish actually get their EPA and DHA content from algae. One issue is the seemingly lower concentration per pill. This is only a problem as it might be cost prohibitive to take so many pills.

Check out this page on the subject of omega3. It's awesomely comprehensive.

What is the difference between omega 3 eggs and regular eggs? Is it just the increase in omega 3 and if so can regular eggs have flaxseed or an omega 3 oil added and give the same benefits?
