Vancouver Sun Article on Omega 3’s from Fish Oil

Quality Alive Brand Wild Salmon Omega 3 Fish Oil in Flyer Sale 360 capsules $25.99 until January 31st 2010.

Yesterday, Tuesday January 19th 2010, the Vancouver Sun had an article re-enforcing the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil.  For years Cardiologists have recognized the positive effect from fish oils after one has a heart attack, but they still have many questions as to why these essential fatty acids work so well.  It is important to remember that while we will never have all the answers to everything in the medical field, keeping things in moderation is key.  Therefore, as long as it is not harmful to you in any way, which fish oil is not, you might as well take it for prevention of things like joint pain, a healthy colon, prevention of cancer, and maintaining as well as improving heart health.  While fish oil is good for you, remember to make sure you buy a reputable brand that has IFOS testing.  When something like fish oil is praised in a well respected paper such as the Vancouver Sun, people go and buy it right away.  This is good, but the problem is that the article cannot provide you with any suggestions as to what brand to buy.  With fish oil you want to make sure it is a quality fish oil with testing for metals and toxins such as mercury.  The following are some suggestions that are recommended by health care professionals that are pure and free from all toxins:

  • Renew Life Norwegian Gold
  • Ecotrend Nordic Naturals
  • Enzymatic Eskimo 3
  • Alive Wild Salmon Fish Oil
  • Ascenta Nutra Sea

You can feel very confident when taking any of these fish oils.  When you come into Alive Health Centre, Supplements Plus or Morning Sun, we can help you to determine which brand will serve your needs best.  Some come in liquids, some are in capsule form.  Some have stronger EPA the essential fatty acid that is primarily for inflammation, and heart health, and some are higher in DHA the essential fatty acid for brain health.  There are more factors when talking about fish oil and we would be delighted to help you.  You can also refer back to a previous article on Renew Lifes Norwegian Gold fish oil.  Here is the Link: http://www.alivehealthblog.com/category/omega-3s/

  • I am just concerned about the main source of Omega 3 which is the liver of fish. as you can see, fishes can accumulate mercury and pcb. `-:

  • Hi Jennifer, stick to high quality brands of fish oil such as Nordic Naturals. With a brand like this people do not have to worry about PCB’s, mercury, toxins etc. You are absolutely right, people have to be careful when choosing their fish oil, and this is why people often choose Flax, Borage oil and other vegatarian sources, but of course it will never have as high of the EPA and DHA.
