|The best diet is one that is rich in fish,
preferably small in size, at the bottom of the food chain. This will
help prevent contamination from mercury, PCB's and other toxins in medium
to large fish. The minimum daily requirement of Omega-3s as recommended
by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations ("FAO")
is 1.5% of daily caloric needs.
For example, if you consume 1,800 kcal
per day of food, you should ingest at least 3 grams of Omega-3s. This amount
is hard to reach because foods rich in these fats are not very attractive,
and not everyone wants or can eat fish every day.
If you cannot reach the recommended
daily amount of Omega-3s from food, it then becomes crucial to choose an
It Enough to Buy Omega 3 Pills at the Supermarket?
It seems easy to maintain health and prevent
many diseases by just supplementing daily with a capsule or more of cheap
Omega-3s purchased at a supermarket.
Beware: 90% of products sold by supermarkets, herbalists, pharmacies
and online stores are at the least ineffective, if not harmful to one's
For example: A highly publicized brand
sold in pharmacies has 17 grams of Omega-3 (also referred to as EPA and
DHA) per 100 grams of product... in short, only
In another brand sold at the supermarket,
there is only 12%...
This means that to receive the minimum
recommended amount of Omega-3s (an average of
3 grams daily), one would have to supplement with at least 27
I then tried checking the 2 brands on their
respective websites to find an independent Certificate of Analysis
to find out what was in the remaining 90% of the capsule, and especially
to understand the quality of the fish oil used. There was no certificate
To Choose A Quality Supplement:
Fortunately, there are high quality fish
oil supplements that contain a high percentage of Omega-3s (minimum
of 60%) and are tested by an independent institution recognized by
the world’s leading manufacturers of Omega-3. This institute is called
the International Fish Oil Standards ("IFOS") based at the University
of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
On its website
under Consumer Reports you can find the updated list of companies
that receive 5 stars for their fish oil product as well as their
A high quality fish oil with a minimum
of 60% Omega-3s is virtually 100% pure. In fact, it takes 100 gallons of
health grade fish oil to make 1 gallon of pure oil. This type of pure fish
oil is commonly referred to as Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil ("PGFO") which
is an anecdotal term and not a medical or scientific term. Harmful substances
such as PCBs or DDTs are reduced to very low levels by using an advanced
molecular distillation. The superior distillation process also excludes
the possibility of suffering a gastrointestinal upset which is often associated
with lower quality fish oils containing contaminants and saturated fat.
A less purified fish oil causes an accumulation of toxic
impurities that have been proven to damage the hormonal system, causing
annoying intestinal disorders such as gas formation, abdominal pain and
diarrhea and, in some cases, even cancer!
Grade Fish Oil Standards Are As Follows:
If the fish oil
has not been subjected to a multiple molecular distillation process, there
is a high probability of the presence of PCBs, mercury, dioxins, furans
and heavy metals. Only a pure fish oil can be taken for long periods of
time and at high dosages.
At least 60% of
the fish oil should consist of Omega-3 fatty acids containing a ratio of
40:20 EPA/DHA or a minimum of 400 mg. EPA and 200 mg. DHA, with a low percentage
of saturated fatty acids to be digested QUICKLY. In the economic
supplements the concentration is between 15% and 30% and contains a high
percentage of saturated fatty acids. Remember that it takes 100 gallons
of health grade fish oil to make 1 gallon of PGFO.
The oil should be
in the form of natural triglyceride ("TG") to ensure bioavailability
up to 250% higher than the synthetic form of ethyl ester ("EE") that is
common in other concentrated Omega-3 products.
Grade Fish Oil ("PGFO") must be certified by an independent institution
using the most stringent parameters in the world like International Fish
Oil Standards ("IFOS") based at the University of Guelph in Ontario Canada.
The Certificate of Analysis should have the highest rating of 5 stars which
confirms the exceptional quality. These parameters set by IFOS are hundreds
and even thousands of times below the limits allowed by law in the United
States. Only the best brands of fish oil in the world have a 5-star IFOS
certification. Here is a link
to the list of companies and Certificates of Analysis at the IFOS.
Best Buy for
Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil in Capsules and Liquid
A-M B-Well™ Omega-3 PGFO.
Out of the companies
that sell Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil certified by the IFOS the best
buy is Omega-3 PGFO from A-M B-Well Inc.!
||Our prices are discounted up to 40%
compared to its
competitors. This is because it
is cheaper to buy by the case (12 bottles) rather than 1 bottle and the
wise customer is buying directly from A-M B-Well Inc. without any
additional costs to increase the price as a result of dealing with intermediates
or the "middle man".
||We produce the purest form of fish
oils. Its traceability amounts of PCBs (toxic pollutants like dioxins)
are significantly lower than its competitors, and thousands of times lower
than the parameters established by the World Health Organization ("WHO").
Even with such harmless and very small amounts, the presence of PCBs in
an Omega-3 supplement can help one to understand the purity of raw materials
(fish caught in low polluted oceans) and the quality of the production
process of refining. A-M B-Well Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil is
sourced from anchovies, sardines and mackerel caught
off the coast of Peru in the clean Pacific Ocean.
||All batches of A-M B-Well™Omega-3
PGFO are certified by the IFOS,
so the consumer can feel secure that he or she is purchasing the purest
fresh fish oil that will not endanger his or her health.
||A-M B-Well™ Omega-3 PGFO is produced
in the form of natural triglyceride (40:20TG) to ensure bioavailability
up to 250% higher than the form of ethyl ester in (40:20EE) products.
In short, you take less capsules to achieve the same results. The TG form
of PGFO which is sold by A-M B-Well Inc. achieves the same great benefits
but with smaller quantities of a natural form versus the synthetic EE form.
In other words,
3 capsules of a 40:20TG PGFO achieve the SAME results as 4 capsules
of a 40:20EE PGFO! Thus, one is also getting more "Bang for
their Buck", not to mention a superior product that costs more money
to manufacture than the 40:20EE PGFO.

A-M B-Well Inc Guarantee
am proud to say that all of the batches produced by A-M B-Well Inc. since
2005 scored the highest rating of 5 stars by International Fish Oil Standards,
under the classification of "Outstanding Product".
Further, A-M B-Well™ Omega-3 PGFO in capsules
or liquid form are one of the few products in the world to have been verified

entity that establishes stringent quality standards worldwide.
A-M B-Well™ Omega-3 PGFO capsules have
a Natural Product Number "NPN" 80002607 issued by the Natural Health Products
Directorate ("NHPD") of Canada. Omega-3 PGFO capsules contain 90-1 gram
capsules per bottle.
A-M B-Well™ Omega-3 Liquid Gold has a Natural
Product Number "NPN" 80013016 issued by the Natural Health Products Directorate
("NHPD") of Canada. Omega-3 Liquid Gold is available in a 125 ml. bottle
/ 4 oz bottle. Each 5 ml. / 1 tsp. of Omega-3 Liquid Gold is equivalent
to 5 capsules of Omega-3 PGFO capsules so the liquid is very easy to take
for customers that require higher dosages of Omega-3.
Both these Natural Product Numbers are
verifiable on our website
and also on the Natural Health Products Directorate of Canada website.
Cons? A Pharmaceutical Grade
Fish Oil has a higher cost in comparison to generic supermarket supplements.
However, if one decides to supplement with Omega-3 to improve or maintain
one's health, it would not make sense to buy a poor product!
Please note that supplementing your diet
with Omega-3 PGFO capsules or our new Omega-3 Liquid Gold has a daily cost
lower than buying a cup of coffee...
