Ingredients & DescriptionThe American Heart Association recommends eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least twice per week. Fish is a wonderful source of protein minus the high saturated fat that fatty meat products contain. Fatty fish like mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon are high in two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
For those individuals who do not eat oily fish diet, Carlson offers The Very Finest Norwegian Fish Oil, Orange Flavor in easy-to-swallow soft gelatin capsules. Carlson soft gels contain 1000 mg ( 1 gram) of a special concentrate of fish body oils from deep, coldwater fish, which are especially rich in the important Omega-3's EPA and DHA.
This product is regularly tested, using AOAC international protocols, for potency, purity and freshness by an independent, FDA-registered laboratory and has been determined to be fresh, fully-potent and free of detectable levels of mercury, cadmium, lead, PCB's and 28 other contaminants.
