Salmon Omega-3 Complex
Did you know fish is brain food? It’s true! Fatty fish are the most concentrated sources of the omega-3 fatty acids that help support brain health, as well as the health of our joints, vision and nervous systems. Most of us, though, don’t eat the two servings or more per week that we need to get enough. That’s why we make Nutrilite™ Salmon Omega-3 Complex with a unique combination of fish to help fill gaps in omega consumption.
Salmon have a unique biology – unlike us, their bodies make EPA and DHA, the omega-3 fatty acids known to benefit our brains, hearts and more. But we have learned that some smaller fish also are full of these beneficial fats because they feast on omega-rich ocean botanicals. Does that mean the smaller fish are smarter? We don’t know, but we do know that combining these fish sources in Nutrilite™ Salmon Omega-3 Complex is a no-brainer!
A little ocean science for you. Ocean currents from Antarctica bring nutrient-rich water northward to create unique, EPA- and DHA-rich microalgae and phytoplankton off the Pacific Coast of South America. Our anchovies, mackerel and sardines feed on these, and that’s why they’re full of omega-3 fatty acids. For salmon, we turn to the cold, pure waters off the coast of Norway, known to produce some of the world’s highest quality salmon oil.
We want to bring you the best of nature and the best of science while protecting our oceans at the same time! That’s why the Nutrilite™ brand leverages a variety of fish sources and combines that with the latest omega-3 science. Our suppliers have third-party verification of their sustainable practices, including our NutriCert™ stamp of approval. From “sea to supplement,” we take care to ensure we’re preserving ocean resources.
When it comes to sustainable fishing practices, Norwegian fisheries rank #1 in the world! That’s why we trust our partner fishery in Norway to supply high-quality salmon oil. And our supplier of sardines, anchovies and mackerel takes great care to catch only these omega-rich fish. The fishermen are extra precise about harvesting only the intended fish.
The fish oil used by the Nutrilite™ brand in our omega-3 product exceeds industry quality standards, including standards used by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA, the International Fish Oil Standards and the World Health Organization. We use independent third parties to check the quality of every shipment.
With fish oils, it’s a rush to the finish to preserve peak omega-3 quality. We encapsulate our fish oil in soft gels within 72 hours of when the oil is produced to capture the greatest concentration of beneficial omega-3s. Our factory in Michigan, USA, produces up to 1.3 billion soft gels a year!
If it’s on the package, it’s in the bottle – no more and no less. The proof is in the batch record, which contains a complete history of production from catching the fish to the final product, including all safety and traceability steps performed. Packaging documentation includes item produced, production date, batch code, quantity and identity of raw materials used, equipment used, and employees involved in executing each critical step.
We know the who, what, where, when and how behind all of our products from our door to yours! Production and packaging records are linked to every shipment of finished product, allowing us to react quickly to any customer inquiries.
