The Trouble with Fish Oil

At Omvits we believe that nature's resources should be used responsibly while leaving the smallest possible impact on the planet. Fish oil - which currently accounts for the majority of Omega-3 supplements available on the market - is unsustainable in the long term. Our current fish stocks simply cannot handle the growing demand for Omega-3.

You may think that only vegetarians and vegans would benefit from an alternative to fish oil, however, there are good reasons for anyone concerned about their own well-being or the well-being of our planet to consider an alternative...

What does this mean for fish oil?

The oceans are more polluted today than they have ever been. The contaminants, toxins and heavy metals are absorbed by organisms at the low end of the food chain. These organisms are then eaten by fish and the contaminants make their way up the food chain, accumulating in the bodies of marine wildlife.

What about Krill Oil?

Krill oil supplements are a popular alternative to fish oil and are touted as the cleaner, more environmentally-friendly choice.

While it is true that krill oil supplements generally contain fewer contaminants than fish oil (as krill are lower in the food chain), they're certainly not sustainable.
