Oxidation Test Results: Oxidation Levels in Ethical Nutrients Fish Oil
Why Test for Ansidine and Peroxide?
Ansidine and peroxide measure the level of oxidation of the fish oil, or how fresh and pure it is. Like all other oils, fish oils can become oxidised or rancid when exposed to heat, air or light. Oxidised fish oils not only taste and smell bad, but also have limited health benefits and in some cases can even be harmful. This is why it is important you choose a fish oil of the highest quality with the lowest ansidine and peroxide values.
Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Fish Oil range contains concentrated amounts of omega-3 (EPA and DHA) to match the dose recommended by current research. Arthritis Australia recommends the correct dose of fish oil needed to help with the joint inflammation associated with mild arthritis is 2.7 grams of omega-3 daily.1 So how do you get 2.7 grams of omega-3 daily? You could eat 1.23 kg of snapper or 1.1 kg of tuna every day to get this required dose. Instead you could take just one teaspoon of Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Liquid Fish Oil providing you with 2.7 grams of omega-3 (1.9 g EPA and 927 mg DHA).2 Or if you prefer capsules over a liquid, you could take just four Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Fish Oil Capsules.
- Omega-3 fats have not been studied in all forms of mild arthritis.
- One metric teaspoon is equivalent to one measuring cap.
Ethical Nutrients support sustainable fishing and marine conservation which is why all Ethical Nutrients fish oils have been certified by Friend of the Sea. Friend of the Sea independently test and certify products that practice sustainable fishing and reduce their environmental impact.
Pesticide Chemicals - Substance Levels in Ethical Nutrients Fish Oil
Why Test for Pesticide Chemicals?
Pesticides such as dioxons, furans, dioxin-like PCBs, DDT, DDD and DDE are environmental pollutants that have the potential to impact human health. Pesticides can accumulate in the body and in large amounts, they can potentially overload our body affecting its ability to function optimally. This is why you should choose a fish oil like Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Liquid Fish Oil, Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Fish Oil Capsules or High-Strength Liquid Fish Oil for Kids.
Heavy Metals - Substance Levels in Ethical Nutrients Fish Oil
Why Test for Mercury, Lead, Cadmium and Arsenic?
The heavy metals mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are all contaminants that can be found in fish oils. Fish, particularly larger species of fish, can accumulate these heavy metal contaminants from their polluted environments. Consuming large amounts of these heavy metal contaminants can be harmful for health which is why it is important you choose fish oils.
