The Omega-3 oils in fish have been shown to have a number of additional health benefits. Of these the most obvious is the maintenance of a healthy heart. Other favourable cardiovascular effects include maintaining healthy triglyceride levels.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is the fish oil processed?
Fish oils are processed using state of the art refrigeration and preservation methods. The fresh fish are rapidly processed to remove the body oils by steam distillation and further processed by vacuum separation of the low boiling toxins and filtration to provide a standard uniformity of 18% EPA and 12% DHA. Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil is derived from four varieties of Arctic and north Atlantic deep water fish: salmon, menhaden, cod and mackerel. Fish Oil has higher concentrations of EPA and DHA than Cod Liver Oil.
Unlike Cod Liver Oil, Fish Oil is obtained from the body of the fish, excluding the liver.
Has it been checked for contaminants?
Because the sea is the eventual recipient of toxins, it is necessary to do routine tests. Modern processing methods and the processing of smaller fish have kept both mercury and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) at less than 0.2ppm.
