Omega-3 Benefits

Algae Oil vs Fish Oil

algae and fish, both sources of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA

Both algae oil and fish oil naturally contain many beneficial nutrients, including essential Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s from algae oil can be difficult to source, and therefore difficult to find on the market. MINAMI® currently offers one supplement sourced from algae, with more to come!



But which type of supplement is best for you? What are the main differences between algae oil and fish oil? Let’s take a look.

The Health Benefits of Algae Oil


Algae oil naturally contains a high concentration of Omega-3, specifically DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which is known to have a wide range of health benefits, including:


  • Protecting heart health
  • Supporting normal cognitive function
  • Maintaining eye health and vision
  • Supporting mother and baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding


Algae oil provides a plant-based, vegan alternative to fish oil supplements for people who want to increase their intake of Omega-3 without consuming any animal products.


Algae oil shares the same health benefits as fish oil, thanks to its similar DHA content.

The Health Benefits of Fish Oil


Fish oil is one of the best sources of Omega-3; it contains both DHA – proven to support brain and vision function – and EPA, which is proven to support heart health.


At MINAMI®, the fish used to produce our fish oil are sustainably sourced from waters where overfishing does not take place, which allows us to guarantee the purity and quality of fish oil that ends up in our supplements.

This also enables us to ensure that the DHA in our products is of the best quality and concentration to deliver the health benefits it is known for.


Omega-3 fish oil supplements provide an easy, convenient, tried-and-tested way to increase your DHA intake, allowing you to keep both your body as healthy as possible.

Which Omega-3 Source is Right for Me?


Ultimately, whether you choose algae oil or fish oil-based Omega-3 supplements is down to your dietary requirements and preferences.


At MINAMI®, we offer both, meaning you can benefit from the purest possible DHA regardless of your stance on consuming animal products.
