Omega-3 vegan capsules: product information

Vegetable seaweed oil

The vegetable algae oil contained in NORSAN vegan omega-3 capsules is extracted from the marine microalgae Schizochytrium sp.  This type of algae is particularly rich in EPA and DHA, and contain the marine omega-3 fatty acids that are otherwise only found in fish or krill. The cultivation is sustainable, environmentally friendly and low in pollutants, since the sea microalgae are not extracted from the sea, but are grown in large tanks with artificial sea water. In this way the natural resources of the sea are conserved and the fish are preserved.


100% vegan

NORSAN Omega-3 Vegan Capsules are 100% vegan and free of fish or other animal ingredients. The marine omega-3 fatty acids obtained come from the plant marine microalgae Schizochytrium sp. The production of algae oil and omega-3 vegan capsules takes place separately from other NORSAN Omega-3 products. Thus, the NORSAN vegan omega-3 capsules, in addition to the NORSAN liquid omega-3 vegan , are the perfect alternative to eating free of animal foods and still have enough of marine omega-3 fatty acids.

The importance of marine omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential and polyunsaturated fatty acids that we can only ingest through food. A distinction must be made between the plant-based omega-3 fatty acid ALA and the two marine omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.

ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) occurs in linseed, chia seeds, linseed oil or walnuts. EPA and DHA, occurs however, only in algae, fish or krill. The two omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are particularly important for our heart, brain and eyes. Numerous studies prove the positive effect on our health. EPA supports healthy heart function and maintenance of normal triglyceride levels. DHA has a positive effect on the brain and supports its function and development. In addition, it also has a positive effect on maintaining normal eyesight.

Omega-3 ALA is not the same as Omega-3 EPA & DHA


It is important to know that only very small amounts of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA can be converted by the human body into the important marine fatty acids EPA and DHA. The conversion factor may only be 0.5-10% (depending on your weight, metabolism, etc.).

NORSAN vegan omega-3 capsules contain 1,400 mg marine omega-3 fatty acids per daily dose (3 capsules), of which there is 324 mg EPA and 648 mg DHA.

This infographic clearly explains why, for example, linseed oil alone is not sufficient.


Taking the omega-3 vegan capsules


Recommended dosage:

The recommended daily dose is 3 capsules. These should be taken with plenty of fluids with or after a meal. This ensures that the body can optimally utilize the fatty acids.

There are 60 capsules in a bottle. With normal consumption, one bottle is enough for 20 days. The current batch is stable until the end of July 2021.

The recommended daily intake recommended should not be exceeded unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, therapist or pharmacist.


No uncomfortable "burps"

The raw materials used are decisive for a high-quality product. The high quality and freshness of our algae oil means that there are no unpleasant burps after taking the vegan omega-3 capsules. If you want to convince yourself of the quality of the product before taking it, you can simply cut open a capsule and smell the oil or taste it. With high-quality products, the oil used has a neutral smell and could also be taken neat without any problem.
