Omega 3: Where do fish oils come from? How do you get good quality?

Omega 3: Where do fish oils come from? How do you get good quality? | Mr Vitamins
Whilst many of us take fish oils each day for general health, for arthritis or for an inflammatory condition, have you ever stopped to think about where your fish oils come from and how it is harvested?

Why Fish Oils ain’t Oils

Many fish make up fish oil extracts. Some are obvious from the labelling of a product, such as those sourced from Salmon oil. But it is important to make sure you ask your manufacturer if the product is 100% Salmon oil, as some industry standards allow a product to be named ‘Salmon oil’ with only a relatively low percentage of the oil truly being sourced solely from Salmon. Other products named ‘Fish oil’, can be sourced from a number of differing fish species, including small ocean fish such as anchovies, sardines and mackerel. When sourced from multiple species, it is important to know where your fish are caught and what standards are adhered to for the treatment of these fish, including how they are transported to an extraction facility and what safeguards are in place to assure sustainable harvesting techniques are being employed. Depending on where your fish are sourced and where the oils are extracted, differing regulations apply.  In Norway, for example, the methods used to extract oils and those regarding the transportation of fish to their manufacturing facility are amongst the highest in the world.
