Ingredients & DescriptionThe Omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, contained in Carlson Labs Very Finest Fish Oil, aid in our well-being by promoting and supporting:
The typical American diet is high in saturated fats from meat products. However, it is low in fish, thus the need for Omega-3 fish oils. The average American consumes an inadequate amount of the Omega-3’s, DHA and EPA. Our bodies can make small amounts of them from alpha linoleic acid, or ALA, when it is present in our diet. This process is very slow and does not result in increasing the levels of DHA that are obtained by using fish oil supplements.
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.
