The Metagenics range of concentrated omega-3 fatty acid formulas represents the highest technology in purified fish oil. This results in a final product that exceeds industry standards in purity from common contaminants including:
Heavy metals:mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are allcontaminants that can be found in fish oils. Fish, particularly larger species, can absorb these heavy metal contaminants from their polluted environments. Heavy metal contaminants can be harmful for health, which is why it is important to choose quality, purified fish oils.
Environmental contaminants:Metagenics removes impurities, pesticides and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to provide a high quality and pure fish oil. POPs such as DDT, DDD, DDE, dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs can be found in fish oils and have the potential to impact human health. These pollutants can accumulate in the body and affect its ability to function optimally. This is why it is important to choose a Metagenics fish oil, which has less than the Australian standard minimum level of POPs.
