. . . many are contaminated and/or rancid Most fish and fish oil today are just too toxic to be beneficial. In addition, many fish oils on the market are rancid (oxidized). Omega 3 fats are extremely perishable, and great care and extra expense are needed to provide a fish oil product free of rancidity. Our seas and oceans are increasingly contaminated, and these contaminants find their way into many fish oil supplements. Several years ago a report by the American Chemical Society found increasingly high levels of flame retardants, as well as pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in several brands of cod liver oil. It pays to be selective when choosing a fish oil supplement. You can trust Beyond Health to supply clean fish oil supplements. Our Fish Oil Formula and cod liver oil are purified of contaminants and handled carefully so as to protect them from rancidity. Also, often overlooked, fish oil can also oxidize after it is ingested. Anyone taking fish oil should also be taking vitamin E to protect omega 3s from becoming rancid inside the body.
