The Best Vegan Sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The Best Vegan Sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Vegetables are a significant source of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, carbs, and fats. Omega-3 is essential for your heart and brain health. It fights inflammation and other related diseases. Omega-3 typically comes from fish, plants, and vegetables.

Benefits of Plant-based Omega-3 Fatty acids

While fish is the main source of this fat, you can still enjoy its complete health benefits using plant-based omega-3 fatty acids. Our body cannot produce polyunsaturated fatty acids, so it depends on other sources of omega-3. The key benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are:

  • Improves heart health
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke
  • Lowers your joint pains and muscle stiffing
  • Improves your brain and memory
  • Gives you strong bones

 

Difference between Animal and Plant-based Omega

  • Marine animal or fish-based omega-3 (fatty fish, fish oil, etc.)

These contain docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) –a long chain for PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA), which comprises 22 carbons and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

  • Plant-based Omega-3

It is found in chia seeds, walnuts, seed oil, Algal oil, Parilla oil, and hemp seeds, etc. All these contain alpha-linolenic acid (called ALA). It is an essential omega-3 fatty acid and a relatively small chain for PUFAs that comprise only 18 carbons. Interestingly, they have no presence of DHA and EPA, unlike fish. Our body cannot synthesize it, so we should consume ALA as well through diet.

Are you a vegan, or do you not like the taste of fish?

You will find many plant-based sources of Omega-3 including vegan supplements. Yuve Omega 3-6-9 Gummies are the best alternative for fish oil gummies. These vegan gummies contain algae and chia oil. Vitamin C and omega-3 include vital DHA and EPA. Vitamin C in combination with plant-based omega-3 may have a healthier impact on improving your immune system. Yuve Omega 3-6-9 Gummies support brain and heart health. Plus, these non-GMO and gelatin-free gummies are good for men, women, children, vegans and vegetarians.

 

By either incorporating a few omega-3-rich foods into your diet or opting for a plant-based supplement, it’s possible to meet your nutrition needs, seafood-free.
