Each dose of this concentrated fish oil is delivered in a small, fish-gelatin–based softgel. The softgels are covered with a GRAS certified enteric coating so that they are easy to swallow and the EPA/DHA content is optimally absorbed. EPA and DHA from fish oil promote wellness by supporting cardiovascular health, cytokine balance, joint health, and brain and nervous system function.
IFOS Five-Star Certified Purity and quality are paramount when selecting fish oil supplements. This is precisely why we chose an Alaskan fish oil for Omega-AF 900 that is IFOS (international fish oil standards) five-star certified. IFOS is the only third-party testing and certification program for omega-3 fish oil products; it sets the gold standard for analyzing products for comparison to the highest industry standards with regard to contaminants, stability, heavy metals, and potency. Furthermore, IFOS provides detailed results for all testing categories for each individual lot tested. These assays are displayed on the IFOS website. IFOS is exclusively focused on omega-3 fish oil products, and it has long-standing experience with testing fish oil at all points along the supply chain.
GRAS-Certified Enteric Coating Omega-AF 900 employs a fish-gelatin—not a bovine-gelatin—softgel that is enteric-coated and GRAS certified to further guarantee quality. The enteric coating helps ensure that the fish oils reach the small intestine before being metabolized, resulting in better delivery of actives to the intestines for absorption. This delivery may also reduce the occurrence of a fishy aftertaste.
Health Benefits of EPA/DHA Research and studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids antagonize arachidonic acid-induced eicosanoid formation; help generate resolvins and protectins to aid the body’s “cleanup” response to the arachidonic acid cascade; promote neurological health and mental functioning; and promote cardiovascular health, a balanced immune response, and healthy glucose and insulin metabolism.
