The Natural Fish Oil Concentrate used in this softgel is manufactured under strict quality control standards.  It is tested to be free of detectable levels of potentially harmful contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins, and other contaminants). Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. 

Other Benefits:

Cognitive development in infants: DHA makes up 90% of the omega-3 fatty acid content of the brain, and is a major component of brain cell membranes. Since DHA is crucial during development of the brain, adequate DHA intake is important for pregnant and nursing women. Previous studies documenting improved cognitive skills in breastfed infants have attributed this to the DHA content of breast milk. A new study has confirmed these observations. Infants were fed formula with or without supplemental DHA – when they reached 9 months of age, the babies given DHA scored higher on a problem solving test.

Keeping arteries clear: The oxidized form of LDL cholesterol contributes to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. DHA supplementation in healthy, middle-aged men had antioxidant effects on LDL.

Reducing inflammation: Men who took DHA supplements for 6-12 weeks decreased the concentrations of several inflammatory markers in their blood by approximately 20%.

Cancer protection: DHA and EPA induced programmed cell death in colon cancer cells and prostate cancer cells, and DHA supplementation reduced tumor size in mice.

Slowing the aging process: It had already been shown that heart disease patients with higher intakes of DHA and EPA survived longer. A new study has found that higher intake of these omega-3 fatty acids was associated with slower rate of telomere shortening, which is a DNA sign of aging.
