Facts on Fish Oil
It’s estimated that more than 1 in 3 U.S. adults have at least one type ofcardiovascular disease, such as coronary heart disease.3
EPA and DHA
Getting enough EPA and DHA omega-3s from fish oil helps maintain the health of your cardiovascular system and supports healthy circulation.**
Are you getting enough?
More than 90% of U.S. adults don’t get enough of EPA and DHA omega-3s from fish to meet current recommendations for cardiovascular health.1,2
To consume at least two servings of a variety of seafood, preferably fatty fish rich in DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, per week.1,2
There are many risk factors for cardiovascular disease that include smoking, a sedentary or inactive lifestyle, and poor nutrition.3
Are You Getting Enough Omega-3s for Your Heart?
Since the initial discovery of the connection between fish oil and heart health in the 1970s, there have been more than 36,000 studies on eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids. These two main omega-3s, found in fish oil, are now among the most thoroughly studied nutrients in the world for heart health.
Because of the vast body of scientific evidence, the American Heart Association and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have aligned in making recommendations for fatty fish intake, along with achieving a balanced diet and an active lifestyle, for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Additionally, the FDA has a qualified health claim related to EPA and DHA omega-3s: “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.” For information regarding dosage of omega-3 fatty acids, see the supplements facts panel on your product label.
Not All Fish Oil Is the Same
When choosing the right fish oil product for you, make sure to understand your potency and speak to your health care provider to see what dosage is right for you. Pay attention to the total amount of EPA and DHA omega-3s contained in your fish oil supplement. The higher concentration of DHA and EPA, the less softgels you’ll need to take to get enough omega-3s!

Guaranteed Purity: Purified to eliminate Mercury
Puritan’s Pride Fish Oil has guaranteed efficacy and safety. The raw and fresh fish oil undergoes advanced purification steps to concentrate the omega-3s oils while helping to remove unwanted compounds or contaminants.
Following their manufacturing, the finished fish oil softgels are also tested to ensure product quality, efficacy, and safety. These are evaluated based on methodology as outlined and developed by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED), an organization that has set the standard for fish-derived omega-3 oils in the industry.
Puritan’s Pride is actively engaged in qualifying fish oil suppliers that are committed to sustainable sourcing practices. We understand that leveraging our influence can help drive and strengthen the sustainable sourcing of fish oil across the natural products industry.
Sustainability of fish oil begins with high expectations of our partners. By choosing the right fish oil suppliers, we help to encourage sustainability efforts, support the preservation of biodiversity including avoidance of “bycatch” of endangered species, and ultimately delivering a quality product.
Naturally sourced mixed tocopherols (including alpha-tocopherol, or vitamin E) are added to our fish oil softgels during the time of manufacturing. These help to maintain the freshness of the fish oil and the integrity of the polyunsaturated oils, including EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
What’s the science behind omega-3s?
In the early 1970s, Danish researchers were the first to raise awareness of the possible benefits of fish oil after publishing their report on the low incidence of cardiovascular disease in Greenland’s Inuit population despite their high fat diets.4,5 Only on a hunch, the scientists had proposed that a potential explanation was the “large amounts of polyunsaturated fats” found in the fatty tissues of the fish and seal meat that was a regular part of Inuit meals.4,5
Nearly a half century later, there have been more than 36,000 papers published, including more than 4000 human clinical trials, on the benefits of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Based on the large body of evidence, the scientific consensus is that these long-chain omega-3s have a positive impact on various body systems including the heart, the brain, skin and joints, and the eyes**. These benefits can depend on the quantities of EPA and DHA omega-3s consumed daily.
What about sustainability and quality?
During the last decade, the sustainable harvest and manufacturing of fish oil has been subject to several advancements. Puritan’s Pride has partnered with suppliers with a strong commitment to high quality, freshness, and sustainability.
Our company is also a member of the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED), an organization that is a leader in advocating the consumption of fish oil-derived omega-3s and has set the standard for quality in the omega-3 industry. GOED members are expected to follow strict ethical guidelines in the manufacturing and the marketing of fish oil products related to benefits and quality.

What’s so essential about omega-3s?
Because our bodies can’t make them on their own, both omega-3s (as alpha-linolenic acid) and omega-6s (as linoleic acid) are considered essential. A balanced dietary intake of both omega-3s and omega-6s are needed for human health.
Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, are necessary as structural components for cell membranes and cell-signaling molecules for proper function. We require them for the maintenance of all of our body’s cells and several body systems and organs, such as our
All your cells: Omega-3s are some of the most important fatty acids you need for cellular health.** They play a key structural role in the membranes of every cell in your body and are essential for normal cell growth.**
Metabolism: Because of their roles in cell-signaling, EPA and DHA are important fatty acids you need to support metabolic health.**
Skin and joints: EPA and DHA are essential for keeping skin looking healthy and supporting joint health.**
Brain: Omega-3s, primarily as DHA, are naturally found in our brain, as part of brain cell membranes. These omega-3s play an important role in normal brain structure.** A dosage of 2620 milligrams per day of EPA and DHA can help support brain health.**
Eyes: For those spending a lot of time in front of a computer, a dosage of 1200 milligrams per day of EPA and DHA may help with occasional dry eyes
