How it all started...

The team at Omvits came together through a shared challenge we all faced: living a healthy lifestyle in a sustainable way.

While researching the many benefits of a plant-based diet, it was clear that eating a varied diet with lots of fruits and veggies provides almost everything you need to be healthy. However, our research showed that there were a few nutrients which are commonly lacking in the modern diet - and not just in vegan and vegetarian diets.

One of these deficiencies is Omega-3 - an important polyunsaturated fatty acid usually found in fish.

For many years, fish or cod liver oil supplements have been the most common way for people to get their Omega-3, but our research into the fishing industry revealed some startling statistics...

"At the current rate, the world's fish stocks may collapse by the year 2048"

- UN Food & Agriculture Organization

"The global fishing fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support. More fish are taken out of the ocean than can be replaced."

- World Wildlife Fund

"An estimated 300,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises die in fishing nets every year"
