I ordered some v-pure when I first saw this thread and the 3 for 2 deal, but then they canceled my order because it was back ordered (which it clearly was already when I ordered it). I just bought some of these http://www.northcoastnaturals.com/products/vegedha.php but now that I'm comparing the ingredients the DHA and EPA content is tiny compared to V-pures!

Does anyone have any recommendations for supplements besides V-Pure? I've been eating hemp seed lately and noticing some positive effects (though it might be placebo), but I'd like to take a supplement. Since V-Pure is chronically out of stock, it seems, can anyone recommend a second best?

omega zen is usually the second cheapest in terms of dollars per mg dha (though not necessarily dollar per pill).

Thanks! Now, who wants to tell me how much DHA is recommended daily?

I've been taking Deva DHA but I'm planning to switch to V-Pure because they're cheaper. I take them mostly because I don't always get enough in my diet and there have been some small studies that link low levels of omega-3s with depression, so raising my levels can't hurt.

Jack Norris is dying to tell you all about it. I do pretty much what he says, which is on 300MG gel cap every time I remember, which is two or three times a week.

I started taking Pure One DHA. I think it has a good amount of DHA per capsule (300mg). Also, it doesn't have the random herbs that some of the other brands have. It is super expensive though. I got it through Pangea.

I ordered the V-Pure and then canceled because of the wait. Also, I didn't like that the dosage was for 2 pills, I'd rather take one. I want a brand I can rely on, especially since I am thinking about having a baby. I don't want a few months wait between bottles.

I take the Deva brand one. I have total brain fog all the time though so it obviously doesn't work.

Heh, I assume you're kidding, but if you are having cognitive issues, dha's probably not going to help according to the latest research. If veg*ns have cognitive issues, lack of vitamin d, b-12 or iron are the usual culprits.

Got a deal at my local organic grocer on Barlean's Total Omega Vegan Swirl, which has both and is yummy. Plus I use flax and hemp in varying forms regularly.

That stuff is expensive! How long does a bottle last?

Or too much internet.

So...some of my DHA's (the Pure Ones) have weird brown things floating in them. Anyone know what that is? I hope they aren't contaminated!

I take the opti 3 and I like it, but one bottle only lasts 30 days, and it's expensive (to me) to only last that long.

My doctor wants me to take 600 mg of DHA per day, you guys, and goddamn I don't have money. Anyone in Canada know of supercheap veg DHA sources? What if I chug flax seed oil?

Chugging flax is not recommended. It's actually toxic in large quantities. I don't think there are any supercheap sources unfortunately.

Can you order v-pure? If you take three pills a day of that and get the buy 3 for the price of two offer, you're paying about $20 a month. http://www.v-pure.com/omega3/

yeah, I actually just ordered that while you were posting. In hindsight I probably should have ordered 6 instead of 3. Ah well, next time.

I saw a dietitian and she recommended 300-500mg/day. I'm not sure if that was specific to the pre-conception counseling or in general as well. I got the picture it was more important if you are having a baby than in general.

Anyone know where to get cheap omega 3's/DHA in Canada? Everything online costs so much to ship here but I can't find anything that's not too pricy in the stores. I'm not a big fan of the oils, no matter what I sneak it into I hate finding creative ways to mask the flavour/texture of oil and they tend to be more expensive anyway. I do put flaxseed in my smoothies but I want to cover my DHA bases.
