Omega-3 fatty acids are vital and essential nutrients for our health. Composed of long chain carbons, which are polyunsaturated, they have many double bonds. The term Omega-3 refers to the location of the first double bond on the third carbon. Docosahexaenoic Acid; DHA; Eicosapentaenoic Acid; EPA; Alpha Linoleic Acid; ALA: are all well recognized as essential Omega-3s that are vital in human nutrition and physiology. EPA and DHA are major contributors to cardiovascular health, immune processes and support the formation of healthy prostaglandins. DHA is a major component of the brain, retina and neurons.
Medical scientists and natural health specialists alike are encouraging people throughout the world to eat more fish, because fish is the only major source of long chain polyunsaturated omega-3s, EPA and DHA. Cod Liver Oil is a naturally rich source of these vital fatty acids, which are unique in their structure and function and aid us in our well-being. Only cod fish caught during the winter and spring are used, as the liver oil content is highest at this time of year. The oil is separated from the liver tissues without the use of chemicals.
For almost 30 years the Carlson family has been visiting Norwegian fish oil manufacturing facilities in order to select the very finest fresh Norwegian fish oils from deep, unpolluted cold-water fish. Extensive independent testing assures that Carlson Fish Oils are only the freshest, purest and finest quality available. In addition, vitamin E is added to the fish oil, then it is bottled in Norway using a dark glass bottle and sealed in nitrogen to prevent oxidation and preserve freshness.
