Plant-Based Omega-3 Supplements

“Plant-Based Omega-3 Supplements” This is what it looks like. It’s grown organically. So, no heavy metals;
no industrial toxins. It’s grown bloodlessly. You know, Charlie looks
happier in the commercials. It’s grown sustainably, so we’re not contributing to the
extinction of our ocean wildlife. It’s grown hygienically— so, you don’t have to hear me talk
about the first report this year of a new fish tapeworm in North America. Those are not noodles. Food is a package deal. “No,” we tell the maître d’, “I’m not trying to be difficult;
I do want the omega 3s. But could I at least get the
tapeworms on the side?” It doesn’t work that way. Food is a package deal. As unsavory as this may be, it’s not as bad as pork tapeworms, shown here sticking out, and here, shown literally
eating someone’s brain. All the benefits, none of the risks. The long-chain omega 3s,
the “DHA” in golden algae, found to be 100% bioequivalent
to the DHA in fish flesh. So, organic, hygienic, sustainable,
bloodless, bioequivalent; it may even be cheaper too. So, we have a choice: we can get our long-chain
omega 3s this way, or… this way. Yes, people who don’t eat animals have very low levels of
industrial toxins in their body, but they also have very low
levels of long-chain omega 3s. So, I recommend everyone take
250mg of microalgae-based DHA daily. And when I say everyone,
I mean everyone. Most fish-eaters aren’t getting
enough DHA for optimal health, either.

We, your followers, are looking for solutions not this waste of time graphics. Stick with the studies approach it has worked. This kind of stuff will get you lost in the noise.

I do think these vegan's exaggerate the risks of meat. How many people do you know who has gotten a fish tapeworm or any tapeworm for that matter.

I also don't think that you will find plant based source of Omega-3 that is cheaper than fish oil – at least not for a while.

One product is  called ovega-3 (notice the 'v' in the name). This is the cheapest. It is not as cheap as fish oil and has a different composition of omega-3 from fish oil with more DHA than EPA while fish oil it the other way round. You can get it on Amazon and many other places.

Personally, I don't think that a little distilled fish oil is going to hurt you, except maybe your conscience.

You recommend 250 mcg's of DHA a day here. NutritionFacts.com it says "250 mg daily of pollutant free (yeast- or algae-derived) long-chain omega-3’s (EPA/DHA)". There's not a lot of options out there. So if it's not necessary to get EPA that will increase the options. But they're uniquely different, equivocally beneficial, and may even be best to eat them at the same time.

According to an article by Barry Sears Ph.D. at Psychology Today "if you use high-dose DHA it is essential to add back trace amounts of GLA to maintain sufficient levels of DGLA to continue to produce anti-inflammatory eicosanoids". I'm not sure what the threshold is between "high-does" and 250 mg. I wonder if a golden algae supplement that had maybe less DHA and more EPA would be ideal.

Keep your ugly videos of environmental crimes out of our videos! I don't appreciate that ugliness and it isn't relevant for the video. Sensational videos are…..well, sensational. I don't like those sensations thank you.

Algae supplements are always made with sunflower oil that has high omega 6. Unforeseen problem?
