Giveaway: Win a Jar of Vegan Omega 3 from Nothing Fishy

Nothing Fishy Omega 3

You’ve seen the words ‘HIGH IN OMEGA 3’ screaming out at you on bread packets. As a non-fish-eating vegetarian or vegan, you might even have bought one loaf of bread over another because of its claims. But did you know you’d need to eat around 23 slices of bread to get the recommended daily amount of omega 3? That’s a lot of bread.

Omega 3 is usually found in fish but, here’s the thing – fish don’t actually produce it; they get it by either eating algae or by cannibalistically eating other fish that have been eating algae. Nothing Fishy have cut out the fishy bit by – appropriately enough – not cutting up any fish and instead going straight to the algae, which they grow themselves in seawater made in a controlled environment.

But why do we need Omega 3 in the first place? Studies have shown that Omega 3 is good for brain health; in particular

  • relieving depression;
  • supporting memory; and
  • improving concentration.

Fish-free Omega 3 also has the added bonus of not containing any harmful toxic metals that can be found in fish oils.

As you can see from the photo above, Nothing Fishy’s Omega 3 capsules come in gorgeous packaging. The cork-stoppered jar is made from recycled glass and can be reused afterwards – Nothing Fishy offer a monthly or two-monthly refill service, saving you 25% off the usual price each time. The refills come in a postbox-friendly sealed ecobag, so you won’t need to be at home to receive it.

Nothing Fishy’s Omega 3 is suitable for vegans, vegetarians and contains 200mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (read this for the health benefits of DHA), so 2 capsules a day gives you the recommended 250-450mg recommended daily amount. For more information about Omega 3, why you need it and where you can get it from, read this investigation into omega-3 fatty acids in your diet by The Food Magazine (to be honest, it’d be quicker just to pop a couple of Nothing Fishy’s capsules. It’d probably even be quicker to eat 23 slices of bread, but I’d go for the capsules myself).

  1. Oh my! I didn’t know that fish don’t actually produce omega 3, that’s weird then!! I don’t get omega 3 but I guess I would need an extra help to relieve this mild depression I have 🙁

    1. I didn’t think it was possible to get much Omega 3 if you weren’t eating fish, taking fish oil supplements! Would love to try these

  2. Wow these look amazing! I have never taken fish oils or omega 3 simply because I can’t bring myself to eat anything with animals regardless how good it may be for me! Thanks for sharing! X

  3. What a wonderful jar to keep them in so much better than the normal sort of pots you get thank you for the opportunity

  4. Great idea! Loving the look of these bottles, so much prettier than the plastic tubs you usually get vitamins and supplements in

  5. Ohh ok, I always thought the omega stuff was like part of the fish, if that makes sense. You’d think with the bazillions of articles in papers and magazines about the health benefits of it that someone would mention where it originates!
    I am a lifelong vegetarian so have never consumed meat or fish so I am always interested in finding ways to replace nutrients that I might ‘miss’.

  6. I didn’t realise that Omega 3 could help with depression. I need to start taking it!
    Would be lovely to win this as the bottle is gorgeous too x

  7. I love the packaging ! I didn’t even realise that you could get vegan omega 3 , very interested in trying

  8. I had no idea about Omega 3 and fish-learn something new every day!. I’m already a vegertarian and plan on becoming a vegan so I’m sure this would be very useful for me 🙂

  9. I am a vegetarian and as i get older feel that i could do with an extra supplement although i do eat plenty of seeds so this sounds brillient and would love to try.

  10. These sound great, since my husband died I’ve found concentrating hard so if they could help me be less scatterbrained that would be fantastic

  11. Would be great for my vegan daughter. I’m sure she eats properly, but I’m her mum, can’t help but worry a little bit.

  12. Looks great for my niece who has just gone vegetarian and will miss the oils that she used to get from eating fish

  13. I didn’t realise that the fish didn’t produce the omega-3 themselves, the websire looks really interesting too

  14. I never knew fish didn’t produce omega 3! I am veggie, so getting enough omega 3 in my diet has always been a concern, so this prize would be great to try!

  15. I would love to try these as it is so difficult to get sufficient omega 3 if you are on a plant-based diet.

  16. I was talking to a dietitian today and he said I need to increase my omega 3 intake, This would be a perfect start.

  17. This would help me hit two goals – make my nutrition better whilst being kinder to my friends with faces – of all species 🙂

  18. That’s interesting – I didn’t know that omega-3 originally comes from algae! Would love to try these, and the jars are very cute, too!
