Looking for a "clean" fish oil and one that isn't likely to be oxidized.

  • Nordic Naturals.

    Nordic Naturals. 




     


    I agree.


     


    All fish oil is going to have a small percentage of oxidation even the best.


     


    Nordic Naturals being in the SN/2 position and stabilized with rosemary oil helps.


     


    Carlsons liquid fish oil being flushed with nitrogen would help if you maintain refrigeration. It is also in SN/2.


     


    Most fish oils that are in the SN/2 would ward off excess oxidation. Eating seafood is always the preferred source of omega 3's.

    My book Fix Your Gut, is offered on Amazon for $9.99.

    John/Anyone, do you know if fish oil in softgels offer any benefits as far as stabilization/oxidation goes, over straight fish oil ?

    Assuming the oil was good at the time of 'capping'


    (price wise, straight oil would be better than softgels).

    You get the other goodies along with the Omega 3s when eating fish.  According to Jack Kruse,  it is still the much more powerful method.    He wants you to eat crustaceans or shell fish,  mainly shell fish since they are loaded with Brain nutrients. 


  • is 50 grams or so of salmon is enough per day? i only have access to salmon grown in sea cages (not pools), is it better than nothing?


    also, what about the life extension product? 

  • I always figured this stuff was the best of the best:

    seems like a handy tool to see what options are out there (currently showing 53 products). 


    but does not seem to be listing or taking in to account the fatty acid form... ie. triglyceride or ethyl ester or both/mixed

    You also didn't hear it from me but some people have called into LabDoors testing methods and possible ethical issues.

    thanks for the heads up John. 


     


    the 'buy it now' option is a concern for sure.  i would not base purchasing decisions off their quality rankings. 


     


    slightly off topic; I was just looking at the labdoor rankings for Vitamin D.


    The 'label accuracy' makes for some interesting reading. the product from my 'friends' at Country Life is listed/tested as 1400 IU for a 1000 IU softgel, & they ranked 11th out of 20. 


    Ranked at no. 20 a chewable product is listed at 1600 IU for a 1000 IU tablet.  


    A few other 1000 IU samples; Carlson 1020 IU. Solgar 1200 IU. NOW 1300 IU

    from their site;


    "The International Fish Oil Standardsâ„¢ (IFOSâ„¢) Program is the only third party testing and certification program for fish oils. IFOS sets the world's highest standards for purity, potency and freshness." 


     


    (if you are interested in products by Madre Labs, as i was,


    you need to look under K.D. Pharma or KD Pur, which is the oil that Madre Labs use)
