No More Fish. Meet Omvits: The Nutrition Brand That Makes Algae-Based Omega-3 Supplements

Omvits: The British nutrition brand that’s on a mission to support your health, and protect the planet – with clean, sustainable and ethical algae-based Omega-3 supplements and vitamins, with 0 reliance on fish.

Omvits’ unique solution helps people to be healthy, whilst protecting the environment and supporting underprivileged children, through vegan Omega-3, vitamins and multivitamin supplements for the ethical and conscious consumer, that are sustainably-sourced and ocean friendly. 

The brand fills the gaps in plant-based nutrition, and helps to protect ocean ecosystems, starting with premium Omega-3 soft gel capsules packed with algae oils – that provide the benefits of Omega-3 of fish oil, but… without the fish.

Over 70% of the Earth is covered by water, with algae creating half of the oxygen we breath, so we crucially need marine life to be healthy, and to sustain life. Yet, oceans are still largely unprotected throughout the world, with only 1.5% of oceans declared as ‘protected’ areas. 

Overfishing in particular – is silently damaging the planet, which has detrimental effects on marine ecosystems, threatening the future of both oceans, and humans. 

And this is where Omvits comes in: with algae that helps to meet the world’s increasing demand for Omega-3, in a sustainable and cruelty-free way. Omvits’ Omega-3 soft gel capsules are more effective than eating nuts and seeds, supporting heart function, brain function, normal vision, and fetal development.

The brand has been making waves since 2017, and was founded by Shameek Upadhya, Shaunak Upadhya and Kevin Purohit.

Co-founder, Shameek Upadhya used to build social housing accommodation, used by local authorities and care providers, – to give vulnerable people a home. Himself, Shaunak and Kevin launched Omvits; inspired by the idea of creating a healthy lifestyle in a sustainable way.

Shameek said, proudly: ‘At Omvits, we measure our success by how effectively we take care of people and our planet. We have lots of happy customers, we provide life-changing vitamins to thousands of children every year and we’re accelerating plans to launch our new plastic-free packaging very soon!”

Omvits currently retails premium Omega-3 DHA, Omega-3+ (DHA+EPA), Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 and a Multivitamin, which are packaged in fully recyclable PET plastic bottles, foil refill pouches (which contains 75% less plastic than a bottle), and biodegradable cane fibre labels.

The brand has made a significant investment towards creating a new line of 100% plastic-free packaging, which will launch in Spring 2021.

Furthermore, they proudly support Vitamin Angels, – a charity that helps at-risk populations gain access to life-saving and life-changing vitamins and minerals, with the goal of providing an annual dose of Vitamin A to at least 12,000 children in 2020. The company has also supported 23,000 underprivileged children since 2017, with plans to make an even bigger impact this year.
