Intake of Omega-3 is also known to positively affect various mental illnesses, as well as pregnancy and infant development. Your body can’t make omega-3 fatty acids, so you need to get them from your diet. Nonetheless, when it comes down to the choice of oils, quality really matters.
In this article, you will find a list of 3 World Class Natural Fish Oils, that produce high-quality, refined and purified Fish Oils:
LYSI Fish Oils
LYSI is the biggest fish oil manufacturer in Iceland. The company produces a range of fish oils and supplements from oils of various species. LYSI has been leading in research and product development of marine lipids over the past decades.
The company’s world-class production facilities have been specifically designed to minimize oxidation of the oil and to remove taste and smell in the final product by natural means.
Dropi Cod Liver Oils
Dropi cod liver oils are cold pressed to maintain all its natural properties. The oil from Dropi is made from fresh Icelandic cod (Gadus morhua), caught daily from the clean fishing grounds of the North-Atlantic Ocean around the Westfjords in Iceland.
The oil is produced in a very gentle way and the idea is based on the old tradition. Low temperatures, below 42°C, are used in the process to maintain all the natural properties of this valuable oil. Therefore, the oils contain pure and natural vitamins, omega-3 and other nutrients. No artificial ingredients are added.
Margildi is a startup company that has developed a new refining method to produce fish oil, omega-3 for human consumption. The company currently focuses on fish oils processed from pelagic fish originated out of the clear waters of the Arctic North-Atlantic sea, such as capelin, herring and mackerel.
