Customer Reviews:

  • Yay vegan! But ugh... so fishy smelling.
    I am taking these during my pregnancy, and every morning I dread the ritual. They smell so horrible. I have to hold my breath from the moment I open the bottle until I have swallowed the pill, and then I still need to wash it down with lots of extra water or food. BUT -- I love that this is a vegan alternative to taking fish oil. Being that I haven't found any other vegan brands, I will stick with this one. ...more info
  • Strong fishy smell
    I can smell the fishy smell from an arm's length away. The fishy aftertaste can only be got rid off by drinking lots of water or eating something else. If you're looking for non-fish source DHA, I would suggest that you look at other brands....more info
  • Vegan DHA that's hard to find otherwise
    Vegans and vegetarians have two barriers to obtaining DHA: It is commonly derived from fish (coldwater fish) and when supplied in easy-to-swallow capsules, is encapsulated in gelatin. Of course, vegans/vegetarians won't consume either.

    Then again, even though DHA is converted from ALA (flaxseed sourced) in the body, the conversion is hindered by the processing of non-alpha linoleic acid (LA). So the safest bet is to get DHA directly. If you're vegetarian/vegan and prefer to not consume fish juice and bone jelly (gelatin) then this product is perfect for you.

    The DHA is sourced from algae, probably the same algae that provide DHA to fish, and is delivered in v-caps, vegan capsules that don't use animal gelatin. Some doctors consider this a purer form and recommend algal DHA to children and pregnant mothers.

    Be aware that there is a light fishy smell so if that bothers you, swallow quickly....more info
  • Good Product
    I have been using this product for over two years. It is enteric coated so it helps with the fishy aftertaste. Algae smells like fish so there is a slight fishy smell but no fishy burping after you swallow. I recommend it. ...more info
  • Completely vegan!
    Glad for a vegetarian capsule. The other DHA products I've seen have gelatin capsules - very frustrating for the vegetarian / vegan. I've only taken DHA for a few months, so difficult to measure it's effectiveness. ...more info
  • great vegan product - but keep in freezer and take in middle of meal
    Nice to have a DHA for vegans. I keep the bottle in the freezer and take the capsules in the middle of a meal directly from the freezer. I find that eliminates the fishy burping....more info
  • I had such high hopes for this product...
    I was so excited to find a Vegan DHA supplement! I diligently tried to take this product for 3 weeks but it made me sick every time (along w/my veggie prenatal vitamin). I understand that a lot of pregnant women cannot tolerate the prenatal vitamins and supplements and I guess that I am one of them...
    The smell/aftertaste of the DHA supplement is also just awful (think old fish). The only way I got it down it all was with a big glass of chocolate soymilk.
    I have since transitioned to a kid's chewable vitamin and have not any problems. I am hoping to try this product again in a few weeks after my nausea, etc settles down in the 2nd trimester....more info
  • Vegan Omegas
    I cannot imagine anything smelling or tasting more disgusting, but it's a vegan source of very important stuff. So I guess while some qualities are gross, it's great that it's out there. ...more info
  • Vegan DHA Capsules Smell Bad
    I was led to order these algae-derived DHA capsules because of concerns over toxins in fish oils. After smelling these, I can only say..."gimme back my fishy oils...". These are absolutely the worst smelling supplements that I have ever seen. Whether these are safer is still up for debate, but they are certainly offensive to the senses....more info
  • Perfectly Good
    I've been taking this product for about a year... and I like it. Obviously, it's tough to quantify or truly describe any health benefits, and many people don't think this supplement is necessary.

    I do, however, so I've chosen this product for my daily dose of DHA.

    I've never had any sort of fishy aftertaste, but there are-- to be blunt-- fishy burps. However, I don't think it's quite as bad as others have suggested. You burp a few times afterwards, and you're done. Last time I checked, no burps smelled good. :)

    Frankly, I just feel good knowing that I'm getting my DHA in a totally vegan form....more info
  • Great product, don't buy from Amazon
    I have used Deva Vegan DHA for about two years. It's very expensive through my local health food store, but I love the product. When I saw that Amazon had a great deal, I signed up. I have received three shipments and I canceled this morning.

    When I get the capsules from my health food store, they are nice and soft and liquidy. When they arrive from Amazon they are hard and whitish and it appears that the liquid inside has dried up.

    Yuck.

    I highly recommend this product ... just don't buy it from Amazon....more info
  • Slightly smelly, but otherwise just great
    I am 7 months pregnant, and I've been taking Deva Vegan DHA for almost 2 months. While I am not a vegan/vegetarian, I am allergic to many types of fish, and it is best to avoid fish oil-derived Omega-3 supplements during pregnancy anyway due to concerns with heavy metal toxicity from the fish.

    While there is no fish oil in these capsules, the algae in them does give them a slight fishy odor. Unpleasant, yes, but I've found it can be greatly reduced by storing the opened bottle in the refrigerator. I tend to take them in the mornings (right after my prenatal vitamin) with milk or juice to help with the slightly fishy aftertaste. Once swallowed, I don't have any problems with "fishy burps". Great product, and I feel confident giving them to my unborn son!...more info
