Swanson Health Products’ Swanson EFAs Super EPA Fish Oil passes ConsumerLab.com testing of omega-3 supplements.
Fargo, ND (VOCUS) October 4, 2010—Recently, ConsumerLab.com conducted a study of fish oil supplements—softgels and liquids for adults, children and pets—as well as krill oil and algal oil supplements. The report found that 17 out of 24 fish, algal and krill oil supplements selected for testing passed. In addition, 15 products passed ConsumerLab.com’s Voluntary Certification Program after undergoing the same tests. Swanson Super EPA Fish Oil was voluntarily submitted by Swanson Health Products and passed testing, earning the status of “Approved Quality” from ConsumerLab.com. Swanson Super EPA Fish Oil was also found to be among those products offering the best dollar value.
A recent survey by ConsumerLab.com showed that fish oil has become the most commonly used supplement among people who regularly use supplements, exceeding, for the first time, the use of multivitamins. Seventy four percent of respondents reported using a fish oil supplement. “Supplements providing EPA and/or DHA, such as Swanson Super EPA Fish Oil, are a great alternative to fish as a source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, as they typically have far fewer contaminants, cost less, and are more convenient to obtain,” said Tod Cooperman, M.D., President of ConsumerLab.com.
All-natural Swanson EPA Fish Oil features a potent fish oil concentrate with 300 mg of EPA and 200 mg of DHA. These two omega-3 essential fatty acids play important roles in cardiovascular and immune system function.
