Med-Vita Omega-3 (1000mg) Description from Paradise Herbs
Paradise Omega-3 is a superior quality, sustainably sourced, gelatin-free and natural triglyceride fish oil. It is more bioavailable and stable than synthetic ethyl esters, which often can go rancid. Manufactured in Norway our oil undergoes an "ultra-pure" process which helps eliminate the unpleasant fishy taste, odor and repeat effects often associated with fish oil. Our molecularly distilled fish oil is 3rd party tested and guaranteed to meet or exceed all known purity standards for pollutants, pesticides and heavy metals (e.g., PCBs, dioxins, furans, mercury, lead and other contaminants).
Why Gelatin-Free? After All it's Fish Oil
Nowadays every company seems to have a fish oil. Some are purer than others but the one thing they all have in common is their delivery system. They are all encapsulated with animal gelatin derived from boiling the bones, tendons, hoofs, and skin of cows and/or pigs; or even the collagen part (skin, bones and possibly heads, eyes and tails) of various fish. Lets face it, we highly doubt you would order any of those things off the menu at your favorite restaurant so why would you want them as part of your fish oil product? Paradise fish oil is not only the purest fish oil on the inside, but it is made from some of the purest natural sources on the outside. Our capsule is a brand new, patent-pending, non-animal gelatin replacement derived from seaweed called carrageenan. Previous vegetarian softgels were brittle and had limited size and application issues. Our "Gelatin Free" Vgel represents a technological breakthrough in utilizing the physical characteristics of carrageenan to produce a capsule that is durable, easy to swallow and extremely stable.
