Not All Fish Oil Is the Same
When choosing the right fish oil product for you, make sure to understand your potency and speak to your health care provider to see what dosage is right for you. Pay attention to the total amount of EPA and DHA omega-3s contained in your fish oil supplement. The higher concentration of DHA and EPA, the less softgels you’ll need to take to get enough omega-3s!
Omega-3 Fish Oil 1200 mg (360 mg Active Omega-3)
Puritan’s Pride® Omega-3 Fish Oil 1200 mg purified fish oil is mercury free and contains 360 mg of total omega-3s including EPA and DHA.
Through a process called molecular distillation, fish oil is concentrated and purified leading to the removal of heavy metals like mercury and other contaminants like PCBs and dioxins. Some other unwanted compounds, such as odorants and oxidation products, are removed too. The process does not affect the quality of the EPA and DHA omega-3 oils.
Guaranteed Purity: No Mercury, PCBs, Dioxins
Puritan’s Pride Fish Oil has guaranteed efficacy and purity. The raw and fresh fish oil undergoes advanced purification steps to concentrate the omega-3s oils while removing unwanted compounds or contaminants, such as heavy metals (including mercury), PCBs and dioxins.
Following their manufacturing, the finished fish oil softgels are also tested to ensure product quality, efficacy, and safety. These are evaluated based on methodology as outlined and developed by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED), an organization that has set the standard for fish-derived omega-3 oils in the industry.
Puritan’s Pride is actively engaged in qualifying fish oil suppliers that are committed to sustainable sourcing practices. We understand that leveraging our influence can help drive and strengthen the sustainable sourcing of fish oil across the natural products industry.
Sustainability of fish oil begins with high expectations of our partners. By choosing the right fish oil suppliers, we help to encourage sustainability efforts, support the preservation of biodiversity including avoidance of “bycatch” of endangered species, and ultimately delivering a quality product.
What’s the science behind omega-3s?
In the early 1970s, Danish researchers were the first to raise awareness of the possible benefits of fish oil after publishing their report on the low incidence of cardiovascular disease in Greenland’s Inuit population despite their high fat diets.4,5 Only on a hunch, the scientists had proposed that a potential explanation was the “large amounts of polyunsaturated fats” found in the fatty tissues of the fish and seal meat that was a regular part of Inuit meals.4,5
Nearly a half century later, there have been more than 36,000 papers published, including more than 4000 human clinical trials, on the benefits of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Based on the large body of evidence, the scientific consensus is that these long-chain omega-3s have a positive impact on various body systems including the heart, the brain, skin and joints, and the eyes. These benefits can depend on the quantities of EPA and DHA omega-3s consumed daily.
What about sustainability and quality?
During the last decade, the sustainable harvest and manufacturing of fish oil has been subject to several advancements. Puritan’s Pride has partnered with suppliers with a strong commitment to high quality, freshness, and sustainability.
Our company is also a member of the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED), an organization that is a leader in advocating the consumption of fish oil-derived omega-3s and has set the standard for quality in the omega-3 industry. GOED members are expected to follow strict ethical guidelines in the manufacturing and the marketing of fish oil products related to benefits and quality.
What’s so essential about omega-3s?
Because our bodies can’t make them on their own, both omega-3s (as alpha-linolenic acid) and omega-6s (as linoleic acid) are considered essential. A balanced dietary intake of both omega-3s and omega-6s are needed for human health.
Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, are necessary as structural components for cell membranes and cell-signaling molecules for proper function. We require them for the maintenance of all of our body’s cells and several body systems and organs, such as our hearts, joints, brains, and eyes.**
