Product Information

Fish oils come from cold water fish such as cod, herring, tuna, mackerel, salmon, and other marine life like phytoplankton. The two most studied fish oils are the eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and the doxosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is an especially important component of human cellular membranes, especially those in the brain and retina.

Studies also show that fish oil supports cardiovascular and heart health.

Fish oil also plays a huge role in providing a healthy foundation for, joints, muscles, skin, and the gastrointestinal tract.

Scientists are intrigued by the fact that in countries with the highest fish consumption, healthy moods are far more prevalent than their less-fishy friends! In general, fish oils are considered a healthy addition to most Western diets!

Here are some quick facts about the Co-op's fish oil:

  • Our Fish Oil is currently made from Norwegian fish oil by one of the largest fish oil producers in the world (headquartered in Norway and supporting research of marine omega-3 EPA and DHA on health for more than 15 years).
  • Fish used to make the crude oil comes mainly from sardine, anchovy and mackerel families (NOT farmed salmon!)
  • Similar to edible oils and fats, the crude fish oil goes through standard manufacturing processes to ensure quality (i.e., de-acidification, winterization, deodorization, etc.).
  • The next process is “molecular distillation.” What the heck is “molecular distillation,” you ask? A special instrument is used to spin the oil rapidly, allowing different substances to be separated based on their molecular weight. In this process, toxins, such as mercury and PCBs, are separated from the fish oil.
  • Natural vitamin E (an antioxidant) is added to our Fish Oil before encapsulation to protect the oil against rancidity.

Warnings

  • Fish oil products should contain antioxidants such as tocopherol to protect against their oxidation.
  • Because of the possible antithrombotic effect of fish oil supplements, hemophiliacs and those taking warfarin (Coumadin), or other anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs such as aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), dipyridamole (Persantine), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid) and others should exercise caution in use of fish oils.
  • Conflicting results have been reported regarding the effects of fish oil supplements on glycemic control in those with glucose intolerance, including type 2 diabetics. Doses below 6 grams per day do not seem to affect blood glucose.
  • Patients taking anti-hypertensive drugs may experience additive effects with fish oil on lowering blood pressure.
  • Fish oils can reduce cyclosporine-induced hypertension after heart transplants and can protect against cyclosporine-induced nephrotoxicity.
  • Use of fish oils with etretinate can enhance the effects in psoriasis treatment.
  • Higher doses of fish oils might cause suppression of immune response. Immunocompromised (HIV/AIDS) patients should avoid exceeding 3 grams per day.

Huge difference in dry eye syndrome! February 25, 2014
Reviewer: Carolyn A. from Saint Petersburg, FL United States  
Rarely write a review.  However, my MD had been hounding me to take Fish Oil.  Since I belong to the Coop and these are supposed to be "burpless" (and they are), I ordered and started taking them.  Within a few weeks, I noticed I no longer needed eye drops for the constant irritation in my eyes.  I was having to use the drops multiple times during the day, increasing in the evening.  Great!  FO must be working!  So, I ordered cheaper brand from another supplier (almost same strength).  Within a few weeks, my eyes were again a problem.  I went back to this brand and have been on it for a long, long time and no longer have any problem with dry eyes.  Needless to day, I stock up at sale time.  I only have to take 1 per day.  HINT, IF ANY CAPSULES (OF ANY PRODUCT) TEND TO STICK TOGETHER, SHAKE THEM WITH A TINY AMOUNT OF CORN STARCH AND PROBLEM IS TAKEN CARE OF.  Corn starch is used as a filler in many capsules and is harmless to your health.

My wife hates the regular fish oil capsules January 18, 2012
Reviewer: William Hedal from Apple Valley, MN United States  
My wife can't take regular fish oil caps as she ends up tasting them for the next 2 days. With the Enteric Coated Pills she has no problem, thanks

Fish Oil September 29, 2011
Reviewer: Teri Edgell from West Palm Beach, FL United States  
The 1,400mg of Fish Oil just makes my knees feel better.  The 1,000mg Fish Oil works great on the knees of Golden Retrievers.  Meow Guido
