The Mayo Clinic provides data and actually grades how well certain dietary supplements work for certain conditions. According to the Mayo Clinic, the omega-3 fatty acids found in Prescription Nutrition's fish oil receive the grade of A for their ability to POSITIVELY IMPACT the following health conditions:
More evidence to note about omega-3 fatty acids is that DHA and EPA, the omega-3s in fish oil, are more beneficial than ALA( the other omega-3 fatty acid). According to the Natural Standard® Patient Monograph,
Dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fish oil and certain plant and nut oils. Fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), while some nuts (such as English walnuts) and vegetable oils (such as canola, soybean, flaxseed, linseed, and olive oils) contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
There is supportive evidence from multiple studies that suggests the intake of recommended amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of dietary fish or fish oil supplements lowers triglycerides; reduces the risk of death, heart attack, dangerous abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes in people with known cardiovascular disease; slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques ("hardening of the arteries"), and lowers blood pressure slightly. However, high doses may have harmful effects, such as an increased risk of bleeding. Although similar benefits have been proposed for alpha-linolenic acid, the scientific evidence is less compelling, and the beneficial effects may be less pronounced.
Our fish oil that is purified by molecular distillation and stringently tested for PCBs, dioxins, mercury, and other heavy-metal contaminates.
Another thing to note is the region where your fish are from and are the fish wild captured for processing. Farm raised fish cannot obtain the same diet as wild fish so it does matter. The fish used for our fish oil are all wild harvested fish in the South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Peru. The fish are then flown to the US and processed using the method list above. Molecular distillation ensures removal of any toxins and leaves the omega-3 fatty acids intact. YOU NEVER WANT TO BUY COLD PRESSED FISH OIL. It has no real benefit and you cannot verify if any toxins are present at time of manufacturing.
Remember as always, 100% made in the USA. No china, no melamine, no mercury. Only the quality you would expect from Prescription Nutrition.
