Matt's Thoughts: Although this contains trace amounts of omega-3s in the form of Alpha-Linolenic Acid, the benefits of phycocyanin and phenylethylamine outweigh that. As I always say, it is the amount of unsaturated to saturated fats that matter the most.
Being on a vegan diet, never consuming saturated fat, and consuming trace amounts of polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) is one thing. Consuming a balanced omnivorous diet which includes red meat and saturated fat from high quality dairy products is another. When you live the latter lifestyle you don't have to stress about getting small amounts of PUFA here and there.
Again, the benefits of those two compounds to me, outweighs the small amount of PUFA that you get. Whatever you do, never consume algae oil, fish oil, krill oil, seal oil or cod liver oil. These all contain *deadly* amounts of omega-3s.
