Made With USP Verified Pure and Potent Fish Oil
Fish oil supplements can be a very helpful way to boost your intake of two crucial omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.
But not any fish oil supplement will do. There are three common problems with fish oil supplements: 1) No verification for purity to ensure harmful toxin and contaminant levels aren’t present, 2) Precautions aren’t taken to ensure the oil doesn’t get oxidized and lose nutritional value and 3) Insufficient EPA and DHA amounts.
Lots of companies claim their fish oil is free of harmful contaminants, but the fact is that the specific MEG-3® fish oil found in TrueOmega-3™ is verified both pure and potent by the independent USP board.
The oil is made from very small fish species such as anchovies, sardines and mackerel. Using small fish is a great starting point because they don’t have nearly the toxin buildup of larger more fatty fish like salmon or tuna.
As important is the sea where the fish live. With TrueOmega-3™, you get oil from fish harvested from one of the few remaining pristine ocean environments in the world - the waters off the coast of Peru.
But even in such pristine waters, fish can still contain contaminants. So once the fish are caught and the oil is extracted, a special “molecular distillation” purification method is used to remove metals or contaminants and deodorize the fish oil.
As part of the purification process, compounds that make the fish oil more prone to oxidation called “aldehydes” are removed, which helps to ensure freshness. Mixed tocopherols are also added to prevent oxidation damage which can turn the oil rancid and destroys potency.
Finally, each serving of TrueOmega-3™ provides a total of 818mg of EPA and DHA. When combined with the 50mg to 100mg typically provided from the American diet daily, this amounts to consumption levels frequently recommended for maintaining good health and wellness.
