Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are nutrients that our bodies need, but cannot produce. They help maintain a healthy heart and immune systems and support proper brain and eye development in infants and children. Since the body can't produce Omega-3, it is important to find a good, pure supplement to met your body's needs. Nordic Naturals Omega supplements give you the Omega-3 health benefits that you need with none of the toxins or oxidation.
"Nordic Naturals' multi-patented manufacturing processes enable us to deliver industry-leading freshness and purity levels. We use several steps in processing our oils, from water and clay filters to molecular distillation, with no chemicals or excessive heat, all while preserving the natural constituents of the oil to the highest degree possible. A patented purification process removes any potential environmental toxins (heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds, leaving only the beneficial components of the fish oil (omegas 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, etc.). We also utilize a proprietary nitrogen (oxygen-free) environment to achieve our leading freshness levels, and to further reduce heat requirements, thereby maintaining the integrity of the oils."
The Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Xtra soft gels contain concentrated EPA and DHA for double the strength. One serving gives you the American Heart Association's daily recommendation of both. They are free of gluten, milk derivatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors. These soft gels are lemon flavored which helps to mask the distinct fishy taste that comes with any Omega supplement. The fishiness is still there, but the lemon makes it go down easier.
One aspect that I had difficulty with was the size of these soft gel since they are rather large. Ever since I was young I have had issues swallowing large pills and for the six years that I took prenatal vitamins, I needed to break them in half. Since I could not break the soft gels in half, they presented a bit of a challenge for me. If you have similar issues with large pills, this is something to keep in mind.
