Should I start to take Omega 3 now? I had just bought GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil, each tablet contains EPA 647mg & DHA 253mg. Is it safe for me to take GNC fish oil if I’m in the above condition?
If you’re uncertain about what brand of fish oil to buy, Consumer Reports recommends looking for bottles that are marked USP verified. Products with this label have been tested by U.S. Pharmacopeia, which sets widely recognized standards for food ingredients and dietary supplements. Consumer Reports says U.S. Pharmacopeia tests fish oil for purity and potency, so you know you’re getting a fish oil that’s free of mercury and other contaminants. Neither Spring Valley nor GNC fish oils carry the USP seal.
|• Fish Oil is a rich source of Omega-3 Essential Fatty acids, eg. DHA & EPA
• GNC Fish Body Oils 1000 is derived from quality cod, mackerel, salmon and tuna
• All raw material is tested for heavy metals and contaminants to ensure safety compliance
• Great for those who don’t consume fish on a regular basis
While we have not had an opportunity to review the filing, GNC is confident that its cod liver oil product, as well as all other GNC fish oil products, are safe and appropriate for use by all consumers.
