What is BIOmega-3 Kids fish oil?
Scientific studies* show that fish oil capsules (Bio-Marine Plus, Bio-Fish Oil or BIOmega-3 Kids) provides the same omega-3 health benefits as eating fish on a daily basis. If you want to make sure you get the purest preparation with the highest concentration of omega 3 and the best bio-availability, then Pharma Nord is the best choice.
BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil contains omega 3 in its natural (triglyceride) form, which is converted to free fatty acids in your digestive system before absorption. The unique aspect of this preparation is that the capsules are made of fish gelatine, making it 100% fish-derived. There is also a pleasant natural lemon flavour added to each 1000mg capsule. The fish used is caught in the cleaner waters of the South Pacific and Northern Atlantic.
18% EPA (180mg) per capsule
12% DHA (120mg) per capsule
The above ratios of EPA and DHA polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) represent the same levels found in nature. BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil is not chemically or heat modified to claim higher levels.
BIOmega-3 Kids, fish oil is screened for toxins, PCBs, lead, mercury and other pollutants via the PureMax filtering process. In addition, the oil is derived from the flesh of the fish, not the liver. Once purified, the oil is poured back into its natural wrapping - fish gelatine capsules, which are made from fresh fish.
