Vegetarians and especially Vegans have to work harder to get omega oils into their diet. Veggies need to consume these essential oils as they contribute to our health, they are good for the brain, it is said that it lowers risk factors for heart disease and cancer. And it has been helpful in treating some conditions, such as diabetes, skin problems, allergies, asthma, cholesterol. People agree that these omega oils are essential for our body.
Good sources of these oils which are suitable for veggies include flax oil, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, Olive Oil, brazil nuts, wheat germ oil some cooking oils. It is important to include in your diet.
You can take supplements. Be careful as most supplements are using fish oils, so it is important that you get the veggie versions.
I use the Vertese capsules. They are Vegetarian Society Approved and contain Omega Oils 3,6 & 9. They are in a blister pack which is convenient each tablet is 500mg. I keep a strip on my desk and take one in the morning and one at night. I do go through phases of not taking them and sometimes I forget, but they do seem to make a slight difference. I feel more alert when I have taken them for a few days, it could be my imagination, however they are supposed to be good for your brain.
They are dairy free, vegan and easy to take. They come in a 30 day and 60 day pack, 60 day costing around £5 but I often buy on special offer. Sold in Health Shops, I bought mine from Holland & Barrett.
