Category Average

Mercury content measured at less than 11 PPB (parts per billion). The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) mercury limit is 100 PPB.

Peroxide value recorded at 1.1 meq/kg, and a p-anisidine value recorded at 9.9.

Note: Our freshness scores are based entirely on peroxide values, measures of primary oxidation in fatty acids. Flavoring agents have been shown to skew p-anisidine values (measures of secondary oxidation). LabDoor is currently researching alternative p-anisidine assays that have the capability to account for and eliminate the effects of flavoring.


Nutritional Value

Nutritional Value
Category Average

One serving of this product provides 828.9mg total omega-3 fatty acids, just below the 1.1g - 1.6g daily Adequate Intake (AI) range set by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) for individuals over the age of 14. Of the total omega-3 content, EPA accounts for 405.0mg and DHA accounts for 350.9mg. There is currently no established daily recommended intake for EPA and DHA, although the World Health Organization's (WHO) recommendation -- 0.3g - 0.5g EPA + DHA/day with 0.8g - 1.1g ALA/day (which is partially converted to EPA and DHA) -- is held in high regard.

Furthermore, this product consists of 78% EPA + DHA.

Omega-3 fatty acids constitute 85% of this product's total fish oil content.

828.9mg of total omega-3 fatty acids, consisting of 405.0mg EPA and 350.9mg DHA, is expected to be highly effective based on an estimated 1g recommended daily intake.

Omega-3 fatty acids are clinically shown to improve cardiovascular conditions such as coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemia and hypertension, and, according to limited evidence, enhance cognition, reduce anxiety, improve athletic performance and decrease risk of certain cancers. Clinical research supporting the latter effects is promising, but not conclusive; additional research is required before any conclusions can be drawn.
