There’s Nothing Fishy About The Health Benefits Of Omega-3s
Fish oils—in particular, omega-3s—are one of the most important nutrients for the entire family. There have been more than 27,000 published studies on omega-3s, making them one of the most studied nutrients in the world.
Omega-3s offer a variety of health benefits, including supporting cardiovascular, immune, brain, vision, and joint health. In children, omega-3s are shown to promote brain development; impact behavior and learning abilities; and support comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and reading skills. The most effective omega-3s are EPA and DHA, which are from the family of “good” fats, or polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).
A great way to get your daily EPA and DHA is to take 1 teaspoon of Carlson liquid Cod Liver Oil, which provides 1,100 mg of omega-3s. Unlike traditional fish oil, cod liver oil also contains vitamins A and D. Carlson Cod Liver Oil is sourced from quality, deep, cold water Arctic cod off the coast of Norway. All Carlson suppliers hold Friend of the Sea certifications. Friend of the Sea is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, whose mission is marine habitat conservation.
Carlson also prides themselves on superior purity and potency. To ensure this, Carlson uses the International Fish Oil Standards Program (IFOS), which is the only third party testing and certification program exclusively for fish oil supplements.
Additionally, all flavors of Carlson liquid fish oil and cod liver oil have been honored with Superior Taste Awards from the renowned chefs and sommeliers of the international Taste and Quality Institute (iTQi) in Brussels.
Both cod liver oil and fish oil are excellent sources of omega-3s, and are available from Carlson in liquid or soft gel form. Whichever you prefer, try adding omega-3s to your routine for a daily health boost — there’s nothing fishy about it.
