It is sad but true but when it comes to selecting the purest fish oil a majority of people do not even know the criteria to select one. Let alone laying the hands upon the best quality. I am not joking but it is a fact, in a recent survey people were asked that how do you select a fish supplement for your family – more than 60% respondents had no clue, they just go by what is written in magazines, media and what is told by friends.

Well, following a piece of advice is one thing and following the same advice blindly is another. Do you know that if you take low-quality supplements, you might end up with side effects rather than benefits?

Well, here is an article, which tells you that how to select the purest fish oil and stay healthy by reaping all its wonderful benefits.

Purest fish oil is a factor of three components

1 – Freshness 
2 – Purity 
3 – DHA Content

Let us look at these factors one by one

1 – Freshness 
Oil that is extracted from the fish is prone to oxidation and gets stale quickly. The manufacturer needs to pay extra attention to maintain the freshness of the oil by keeping the stock under ice and in sub zero temperatures. Moreover, the unit to manufacture the pills should not be far away from the fishery to cut the travel time of the oil.

Most manufacturers do not follow these simple rules; and when their oil gets stale, they add artificial fragrances to hide the staleness of the oil. Therefore, if you come across any product that has a fragrance like lime or any other strong citrus fruit, then you can easily conclude that the oil inside the gel is stale and the manufacturer is trying to hide this fact.

2 – Purity 
Oceans as such are being polluted day by day and so is the flora and fauna inside it. Fish caught from such places consume contamination and therefore the oil extracted out of them too carries these contamination. Only the molecular distillation process can remove all the impurities successfully and render the oil safe for you and your family.

Check the Certificate of Analysis that comes along with the product to check the levels of impurities present in the oil. The level of impurities should be far less than the limits published by the International Fish Oil Standard.

3 – DHA Content 
All the major benefits of fish oil are a result of DHA present in it. According to experts, 250mg of DHA in a regular 1000mg of oil is the best dose of DHA. Take two pills in a day and that will cover you daily requirement of omega 3 supplements.

So there you have it – a three fold criteria to select the purest fish oil. Use it to your advantage and select the best of the best products in the market.

Do not blindly trust the reviews and reports; use the three factors to judge the quality and you will find that how effective you are now in selecting the purest fish oil.
