Our whole, unrefined salmon oil vs. standard, refined fish oils
Because it is not chemically refined, our Salmon Oil reflects the nutritional profile of its source: the heads of freshly harvested salmon.
Standard omega-3 supplements contain oils from diverse fish of widely variable purity and fat composition. The oils invariably undergo chemical refinement to ensure their safety and to consistently provide predictable levels and ratios of omega-3 EPA and DHA.
In contrast, because it comes from extraordinarily pure fish, Vital Choice Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil does not need to undergo chemical refining.
Omega-3 health benefits
According to the U.S. FDA, "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."
The long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) found only in seafood (especially fatty fish) – and in supplemental fish and krill oils – are essential to human life and support optimal health in key organs, systems, and life stages:
- Fetal development
- Skin, hair, and nails
- Joints and movement
- Cognition (thinking), attention, mood, and memory
Each 3-capsule (3,000 mg) serving provides these naturally occurring nutrients:
- Omega-3s: About 600 mg of total omega-3 fatty acids, including approximately 240 mg of omega-3 EPA and 220 mg of omega-3 DHA
- Vitamin D: 430 IU of vitamin D3
- Vitamin A: 1440 IU of pre-formed vitamin A
- Astaxanthin: About 36 mcg††
