Friend of the Sea verified, our Ultra Strength Fish Oil is sustainably harvested and contains three times Omega-3’s of standard fish oil capsules. The benefits of Fish Oil come from a 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).
Research indicates Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA provide a variety of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties(ref) and lower risk of coronary heart disease (ref) and lower triglycerides(ref). Fish oil may also have potential cognitive benefits, including better working memory and learning ability (ref). There have also been promising results from studies looking at omega-3 for cancer, depression (ref), and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (ref).
Fish oil doses vary depending on the goal of supplementation. Recommended dosage generally vary between 250- 1000 mg EPA and 250- 1000 mg of DHA daily.
The American Heart Association recommends 1000 mg of Fish Oil daily for overall heart health.
NOTE: If you have an allergy to fish or shellfish you should notify your physician before taking fish oil supplements.

Fish Oil Benefits
Fish Oil is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are required for proper cognitive and physical performance, but most people do not receive adequate doses of these nutrients. Instead, they consume a diet high in omega-6 fatty acids, which can lead to inflammation, obesity, and a variety of other diseases. By taking a fish oil supplement, you can counteract some of these negative effects.
The main omega-3 fatty acids that humans need are DHA and EPA. These should not be confused with other (non-essential) omega-3s, such as ALA, which is often touted as beneficial for your brain when it isn’t. The reason EPA and DHA are so important is because of the composition of our human brains and the historical reliance we have had on fish.
Fish Oil Studies and Side Effects
Research regarding fish oil and Omega-3 fatty acids ranges from cognitive health to joint and heart health.
There is strong evidence that fish oil can reduce triglyceride levels. The effects of fish oil appear to be the greatest in people who have very high triglyceride levels.
There is also strong evidence that that fish oil can be effective for keeping people with healthy hearts free of heart disease. People who already have heart disease might also be able to lower their risk of dying from heart disease by eating fish or taking a fish oil supplement.
Fish oil can cause mild side effects including belching and/or bad breath sometimes known as fish burps, as well as heartburn and/or nausea. Taking fish oil supplements with meals or freezing them can often decrease these side effects.
Buy Fish Oil
You can purchase fish oil in local stores and many sites online. Pure Nootropics does have a reputation for high quality products, however, and our Ultra Strength Fish Oil contains more Omega-3s than most fish oil supplements.
