Q. Are the natural flavors really natural?
Yes, we do not use any artificial ingredients or any glutamate derivative flavor enhancers.
Q. Can I take both nanoEPA (fish oil) and nanomega?
Yes, as adding nanomega increases your total omega-3 intake, especially ALA, as well as extra vitamins, minerals, fiber and an especially absorbable delivery form of the beneficial herb, turmeric. Please check with your health professional if you need further direction.
Q. How are the vitamins synergistic?
B vitamins are important in the conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA. B vitamins also support brain and heart health, in particular by helping to lower a pro-inflammatory substance called homocysteine.
Q. How do you keep the product fresh and stable?
The secret is our Meadow Pure flaxseed which carefully selects only fully mature flaxseeds, which are richest in antioxidants.
Q. How is nanomega better than fish oil?
nanomega is a much more complete nutrient than plain fish oil. It is far richer in vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and phytoestrogens. nanomega is a vegan product, made from organic ingredients, from an environmentally sustainable source. There are no pills to swallow or objectionable tastes, and best of all no resultant fish burps! Learn more here.
Q. Is nanomega glutamate (MSG) free?
Q. Is nanomega gluten free?
Yes, nanomega does not contain gluten, wheat, barely, rye, corn or oats
Q. Is nanomega organic?
Yes, nanomega is made with certified organic ingredients which by definition means greater than 70% organic. nanomega is non-GM0, and additive and preservative free.
Q. Is nanomega safe for children?
Yes. As soon as children have enough teeth to chew food, presuming no medical conditions warranting food avoidance or prescription drug use, they may enjoy up to a scoop a day (1/2 scoop if under 6). As children approach puberty up to two scoops may be enjoyed. If you have questions, please consult your family health provider. For infants, it is likely being breast feed by a mother who is enjoying two scoops a day is the best advice.
Q. Is nanomega safe for pregnant and lactating women?
Yes. We recommend 2-3 scoops a day for pregnant women, presuming the approval of the health care provider in charge!
Q. Is nanomega soy free?
nanomega contains lecithin which is oil from a non-GMO soybean, as part of our patented SuperSorb liposome which enhance the absorption of select, otherwise poorly bioavailable ingredients. Most allergens come from the soy protein, which nanomega is free of.
Q. What are lignans?
Lignans are a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) of the classification known as polyphenols. They act like weak estrogens and are therefore called phytoestrogens. Lignans are also powerful antioxidants. The lignan content is likely one reason why flaxseed consumption is thought to support the health of the breast, prostate and colon.

Q. What is the equivalent of one scoop of nanomega to fish and fish oil?
nanomega supplies the omega-3 content of a full serving of most fish. Depending on a persons ability to convert ALA to EPA, the equivalent in total EPA/ DHA per serving is 200 to 500 EPA/DHA. To learn more see Flax vs Fish: The Alpha and the Omega.
Q. What is the supersorb enhanced delivery system?
supersorb enhanced delivery systems currently include:
using forms of phytonutrients and zoonutrients that are more bioavailable.
using forms of vitamins or minerals that are more bioavailable using micro-encapsulation to make ingredients more bioavailble.
Q. Which should I take, nanomega or nanoEPA?
nanomega might better if you want a satisfying meal (mixed with nanogreens and/or nanoreds and nanopro), especially for maximum fiber, nutrition, weight loss and balanced blood sugar diets. It is also a good choice if you are a vegan. If you desire mega doses of EPA/DHA for nutritional support because you are concerned with arthritis, coronary vascular disease or dementia risk, several teaspoons daily of nanoEPA might be preferred. Of course, if you like things simple, nanoEPA can be taken straight by the spoon.
Q. Why natural Vitamin D3? VilcashineTM
Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is generally agreed to be twice as bioavailable as vitamin D2, ergocalciferol. Fish is the best source of vitamin D in the diet, followed by vit D2 fortified milk. 100% of the DV of vitamin D was added to this nanomega. Vit D is not only important for strong bones, but also breast and prostate health and a strong immune system. Many of us not living in the warm, sunny southern parts of the USA do not get enough vitamin D, especially if we are dark skinned or do not get moderate or regular sun exposure.
Q. Why natural Vitamin E Succinate?
Natural vitamin E, derived from foods, is thought to be twice as bioavailable as synthetic vitamin E, derived from oil. Because polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) like omega 3 and omega 6 are easily oxidized in the body, extra vitamin E should always be taken with EPA/ DHA supplements. The succinate form is thought to be most protective of breast and prostate health.
Q. Why is nanomega better than just taking flaxseed?
Although flaxseed has many benefits, its major drawback is that the short chain omega-3 fatty acids are not well converted to the all important long chain fatty acid DHA, which is so important for brain and eye health. nanomega provides 100 mg of DHA per serving, not from fish, but from the micro-algae fish, the very source of DHA! Plus nanomega also provides synergistic vitamins (E, D, B6, B12 & folate)and 70 mg of high-antioxidant turmeric. Perhaps most important, ready to mix nanomega is absolutely delicious!
