Norwegian fish oil used to be one of the top rated on the market because of its purity and high content of omega 3 DHA. The oil is extracted from fish gotten from the deep cold waters in Norway where there is minimal pollution and plenty of plankton for the fish to feed on. However this has changed and I will tell you why shortly.
It is important to note that fish naturally do not manufacture omega 3 fatty acids; they get it from the plankton they eat, in other words the more plankton they eat, the more omega 3 their oil would contain. Unfortunately, the high demand for Norwegian fish oil has led to the rise in so many fish farms in Norway. The fish here are fed with pellets instead of the plankton which the ones in the wild feed on. You know the saying, “you are what you eat”; hence the oil from the fish reared in these farms contain very low amount of omega 3 fatty acids.
Yet the manufacturers sell it as the premium Norwegian fish oil; agreed, they are from Norway but do not contain the same amount of omega 3 fatty acids as the original oil from fish gotten from arctic waters of Norway.
If you are like me, you wouldn’t want to make the mistake of buying the wrong one when there are better alternatives on the market. One of such alternatives is manufactured by a company in New Zealand; this company produces its omega 3 fish oil supplements using fish from unpolluted southern ocean rich in plankton. They use 50% of natural oil from hoki fish and 50% tuna oil which is molecularly distilled and concentrated. This combination makes their fish oil supplement unique; it is pure and rich in omega-3 and DHA. It also has two and a half times the anti-inflammatory properties of ‘normal’ fish oil which makes it effective on arthritis and heart disease.
It is true that Norwegian fish oil is pure because their waters are clean; however, you can not be too sure of the source of the one you are purchasing(is it from the wild ocean or from the fish farm?). Is it not better to avoid the guess work and go for the fishoil that you are sure of the source, purity level and DHA level.
