The Better Fish

All of us here are very aware of what we eat. We eat fresh fruits and vegetable whenever we can, stay away from GMO products and avoid eating too many processed foods.

We like fish, too. Our local fishmongers get questioned regularly. Are these fresh? Wild or farmed? If they’re farmed, where do they come from? If they’re from China, we usually decline (think pollution). We heard about details surrounding “organic aquaculture” recently on NPR. That’s a debate that will go on for years.

More and more people are including fish in their diets, so it’s important to know where the fish are coming from. And those cold water oily fish with higher concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids in their fish oil, such as salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies, and sardines, comprise the best source for Omega-3 dietary supplements. The World Health Organization went so far as to recommend Omega-3 for pregnant women.

Since the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced “qualified health claims for Omega-3 fatty acids” in 2004, it merely confirmed what many nutritionists and healthcare providers have advocated for years: It’s good for you. The Canadian Government, meanwhile, confirms “DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid, supports the normal development of the brain, eyes and nerves.”

Considering the benefits of fish oil and its contribution to patients’ wellness, we are confident we made the right choice in offering products from Nordic Naturals, a company with years of experience in research and quality production of fish oil. They make sure their raw materials are as pure as can be, from sustainable sources.

Nordic Naturals starts with the best raw material available. Our meticulous quality control procedures begin in the ocean with our careful choice of fish species that are naturally low in toxins and high in Omega–3 fats. Wild–caught from some of the cleanest waters in the world, all of our products are made exclusively from four types of fish, all sustainably sourced, and none of which is endangered: Arctic cod (Skrei) from Norwegian waters; anchovies and sardines from the Southern Pacific Ocean; and salmon (Pink and Sockeye) from Alaska’s Cook Inlet.
