Facts you should know before buying a fish oil

Fish oil fact #1
It's important to select a fish oil supplement with high levels of both EPA and DHA.

THE HIGHTER the concentratetion of EPA and DHA in each capsule or serving, the more health promoting power the oil contains.

* Most supplements contain 20-40% EPA and DHA, while an ultra-refined supplement contains at least 60%

Most Fish Oil Supplements are low in EPA and DHA

Ultra-refined fish oil supplements have at least 60% EPA and DHA

* Some brands obscure low levels of EPA and DHA IN THEIR SUPPLEMENTS BY USING MISSLEADING LABELING PRACTICES - listing total omega - 3s rather than the actual amounts of EPA And DHA.
