High potency EPA/DHA contains concentrated Norwegian fish oil that provides 900 mg of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form. To assure maximum purity and freshness, the oil is stabilized with vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol). EPA and DHA from fish oil have been extensively researched for their health benefits. They promote wellness by supporting cardiovascular health, normal platelet aggregation, cytokine balance, joint health, and brain and nervous system function.
Contaminants: Heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs), such as dioxins, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) accumulate in the marine food chain. Proprietary manufacturing procedures, including triple distillation or stripping of the starter oil, reduce these aforementioned contaminants and other POPs to extremely low levels. Every batch is controlled to be less than half of the limits set in the current guidelines (e.g., European Pharmacopoeia, Global Organization for EPA and DHA (GOED), United States Pharmacopeia), and actual POP levels typically show values close to or below detection limits.
Oxidation: Fish oil is highly susceptible to oxidation. If the oil becomes oxidized during processing, the oil’s health benefits may be diminished. Closed production under nitrogen or low pressure from first refining to finished drumming ensures low oxidation, which is indicated by anisidine values that fall well below other oils on the market. Every batch is tested for oxidation products before release.
