It’s a well-known fact that omega-3 canola oil is a great source of omega-3. The only problem with this is that canola oil contains a substance known as ALA. Our bodies have to convert the substance into the essential fatty acids that we need, specifically DHA and EPA.
When we are young this is no problem at all but as we get older our bodies find it harder and harder to carry out this conversion process. The advantage of taking fish oil instead of canola oil is that specific types of fish already have high levels of DHA and EPA, so your body won’t have to do any converting of ALA into essential fatty acids.
However this can lead us to a further problem. Many fish oil supplements on the market today are not put through the stringent processes needed to make sure that all toxins are removed. A lot of manufacturers do not understand the correct process of manufacturing fish oils to give us the best health benefits.
So at first sight, choosing the best fish oil supplement can be more complicated than you would think. Because many of our oceans are sadly polluted, fish oils need to go through a specialized process to remove all toxins and pollutants.
Unfortunately of late there seems to be more and more companies producing cheap health supplements. These are hyped up to fool the consumer into thinking that they are getting a superior product at a bargain price. They are led to believe that they are actually pharmaceutical grade health products.
The truth boils down to the fact that these products have not been molecularly distilled. This means that you as a consumer would be taking supplements that still contain toxins and you wouldn’t even know about it!
You could actually be impairing your health instead of improving it!
The evidence for all this has been proven in special lab analyses where many different health supplements were tested. The results were quite alarming and showed traces of heavy metals and toxins in many of the leading brands. Scary stuff!
We have been using a pure, molecularly distilled fish oil supplement that is naturally high in DHA and EPA.
The fish oil comes from the Hoki species of fish found on the pristine southern coasts of New Zealand, where the waters are extremely clean and almost pollution free.
