The richest source of omega-3 is oily fish but if you're plant-based or allergic to fish, it's not an option. Made from algae with added astaxanthin, it’s the most powerful vegan omega-3 available and one of the only ones with both EPA & DHA (the most important omega-3s).
Astaxanthin is the main reason people buy krill oil supplements. It’s a carotenoid which gives salmon and shellfish their pink colour. It’s great to eat the rainbow and now you can get your ‘pink’ food from this sustainably sourced algae.
Omega-3 & astaxanthin per dose: 2 capsules contain 500mg DHA, 250mg EPA & 4mg astaxanthin.
Sustainably grown algae: We only use sustainably sourced algae in our vegan omega 3 supplements. For the omega 3 we use schizochytrium sp.algae. And for the astaxanthin we use Haematococcus pluvialis.

A bit more about carrageenan:
It’s a red seaweed which has been sustainably cultivated since the 1960s and requires minimal processing. The one we use is from the USA. It replaces animal-based products. It has been used as a thickener for centuries and processing is mild.
It has previously been mistaken for poligeenan, aka ‘degraded carrageenan’, which is used in medical imaging applications and is considered a carcinogen. Poligeenan is not a food additive. Poligeenan and carrageenan are two separate compounds with different chemical properties and molecular weight. Carrageenan does not degrade into, or turn into, poligeenan during digestion because the necessary conditions (temperature and pH) do not exist in the human digestive tract.
Two capsules of Vim & Vigour each day contain the perfect amount of DHA, EPA and astaxanthin to nourish your brain and body.
It’s best to take your capsules with meals. It helps your body to absorb all the nutrients effectively. And it’s also a great way to get into the habit of taking omega-3 regularly.
Always check with your doctor before taking supplements if you're on medication such as blood thinners, or if you're about to have surgery or have any health conditions.
Vim & Vigour capsules are not suitable for children and pregnancy due to limited trials of astaxanthin in these groups.
The capsules don’t need to be kept in the fridge, but best to keep them somewhere cool.
