April 23, 2014Reviewer: A customer in New York* Okay, I'm absolutely thrilled that Netrition carries algae oil now. I'd been able to find it elsewhere, but since I order all of my other supplements here, it was always a pain in the butt. The price is competitive, too.
As per this brand in particular, I've tried a few products and they all honestly seem to perform about the same to be honest. I'm a vegan and train intensely daily (weightlifting, cardio, yoga, etc), so guarding against deficiency is my main concern. This is much better than using flax or chia oils because they have a rather low conversion rate of Omega-3 to EPA and DHA, whereas algae oil already has both in great quantities (closer to fish oil potency without the fish). Oddly enough, the biggest difference I've noticed since switching to algae is that my hair and skin look a bit better, so that's always a nice little extra.
