There is a very simple reason why these are the best omega-3 supplements you can find . . .
I make them for the people I love.
With every single batch we produce, I have a case delivered to my door. And then I give this life-sustaining nutrition to the people I love – my elderly parents, my wife, my children, my good friends.
In fact, it’s gotten so ingrained in how I operate, my family says, “If he gives you a bottle of pills, he must really like you.”
And just like a birthday cake . . . a special family dinner . . .
You don’t skimp when it comes to making something for the people who are important to you.
Now that’s the simple reason this is the best Omega-3 fish oil . . .
How we get there is a little more complicated . . .
The Best Omega-3 Fish Oil Starts With The Best Fish
We start with the basics . . .
We start with the healthy fish taken from the pristine waters off of the coast of Peru, Chile, and the U.S.
Most of the fish used for our fish oil are Peruvian anchovies. Known as forage fish, these tiny fish live off of algae and are low on the food chain. Because of this, they accumulate far less mercury and PCBs than larger fish do.
So right from the start, you get purer, healthier fish oil.
These fisheries are very carefully managed. Only small, artisanal fishermen are allowed to ply their nets here. And artisan is the best term to describe them…these small fishermen are masters at their craft – meticulous, organized, and careful.
Just as distinct is their commitment to sustainable fishing. It’s embedded in how they work. These fishermen know they need to plan for next year’s catch and work accordingly. Their family’s future depends on it.
Similarly, the Peruvian government’s fishery agency operates with the same future vision. It manages the fisheries with utmost care. They know that the national economy as well as local livelihoods depends on these fisheries remaining viable.
So they don’t mess around and risk overfishing. Every few years when the anchovy populations gets particularly low as part of their natural fluctuations, the Peruvian authorities close the anchovy fishing and we shift our sourcing to Pollock from the cold waters off of Alaska.
So in addition to being healthy for you, we make sure our sourcing is healthy for the complex marine ecosystem we are tapping into for nourishment.
How The Best Fish Are Turned Into Outstanding Omega-3 Fish Oils
As you can see, we start with the best raw ingredients – small, healthy fish sustainably harvested from clean waters. But even the best raw ingredients can be ruined by poor processing.
That’s why we don’t skimp when it comes to processing . . .
Most fish oils are extracted using distillation. This process uses extremely high temperatures which can damage the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 quality and concentration goes down.
We don’t do this.
Our fish oil first goes through a low-temperature form of distillation called ‘flash distillation’.
Then, we use carbon dioxide to extract the Omega-3s from the fish oil. It costs more. But the exceptional quality of the oil makes the cost worth it.
This process uses no heat at all – just good ole carbon dioxide, the same stuff we breathe out every day – the same carbon dioxide plants thrive on. The carbon dioxide is never released into the air. It is recycled.
But we don’t stop there . . .
CO2 Chromatography Purifies Our Fish Oils Far Above Industry Standards
After using carbon dioxide extraction, we purify our Omega-3 even further with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Chromatography.
In general, fish oil tends to be low in contaminants like mercury due to the standard distillation process. But we want to make sure our oil is as pure as possible. So with Carbon Dioxide Chromatography, we reduce mercury, PCBs, cholesterol and other contaminants even further.
In addition to purification, Carbon Dioxide Chromatography also concentrates our Omega-3. With this method we can get Omega-3 concentrations as high as 95%. To put this into perspective, with molecular distillation (the approach most brands use) you can only get to 80% concentration.
Of course this costs more. That’s why very few companies take this additional step.
But in the end, not only are they exceptionally pure, the Omega-3s are also incredibly concentrated. So you don’t have to buy as many pills or swallow as many pills.
Simply by using CO2 extraction and chromatography, we bring our Omega-3 products to a standard that few in the industry can match. We used to call it “pharmaceutical grade”. But even that description doesn’t do justice to the quality and concentration we achieve with this approach to extraction and purification.
And we don’t stop there . . .
Details Matter In Making Premium Omega-3 Supplements
If you’re going to spare no expense in using the best approach to extraction and purification, you might as well go all the way in developing a fantastic product.
So finally, to make these Omega-3 supplements as incredible as possible, we do four more things:
- We use only plant tocopherols as well as rosemary extract to preserve the delicate fish oil.
- We use only kosher gelatin for gelcaps.
- We coat the entire softgel with an enteric coating. This helps the supplement bypass your stomach and dissolve in the small intestine. This is why so many of our customers are pleasantly surprised that they have no fishy burps.
Please note: This enteric coating stays put in the highly acidic environment of the stomach. However, if you’re taking antacids, or your stomach acid level is low, it may dissolve earlier and still leave you with fishy burps.
- Not a single component of OmegaVia is sourced from China. I don’t mind buying a cheap pen or screw driver from China. If it breaks, no problem. But I’m not comfortable buying Omega-3 from China. Until we can verify the certificates of analysis and inspections conducted with Chinese companies, I’ll hold off. China’s come a long way and their quality is much better than it was a decade ago. Many ingredients like Vitamin C are available only from China. But still, they’re not where I feel comfortable as a manufacturer.
Finally, we take one more step to make sure you’re getting the best Omega-3s you can find . . .
Our Omega-3 Supplements Are 3rd Party Tested For Quality
Each and every batch goes through International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) testing.
- This third-party tester assesses our Omega-3s for freshness, purity, heavy metals and potency. Every batch has gotten a 5-star rating from this third-party tester.
- And to make sure we cover every concern, we also have a special order in with IFOS to test our Omega-3s for radiation. Every batch has been certified radiation-free.
