Feed your brain, support your joints and promote cardiovascular health with pure EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids! Quantum Nutrition Labs EPA/DHA offers 200 mg per serving of natural docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 320 mg per serving of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) from the original fish oil without molecular distillation. Our cold filtration process does not require heavy manipulation, high heat processing or the use of harsh solvents to separate the EPA and DHA. Finally a pure all natural fish oil!
Beware of Molecular Distillation
Why take the unnecessary risk of a product using molecular distillation? While fish supplements that have concentrated EPA/DHA by molecular distillation may often be cheaper, this altered oil does not occur in nature. To concentrate EPA/DHA using molecular distillation requires a complex process that breaks the natural glycerol structure of the oil.
The process includes first esterifying the EPA/DHA to yield ethyl esters. Then these esters are converted back to triglyceride form enzymatically – but it is not a form found in nature. This process initially concentrated PCBs. Reportedly, this has been eliminated. However, we believe the most desirable form of EPA/DHA is naturally occurring EPA/DHA that has not been altered and that has been gently purified.
Welcome to Pure EPA/DHA Fish Oil – Without Molecular Distillation
Quantum EPA/DHA Softgels offers natural EPA and DHA from the original fish oil without molecular distillation. Our oil is first pressed, then through a cold filtration process, the fish oil’s original, natural triglycerides are crystallized. This oil is then passed through a low temperature filter press to avoid any high heat process. This process also does not require the use of solvents and is able to separate the saturated fats, leaving the healthy fatty acid triglycerides. This golden-colored oil has a refreshing lemon flavor. It is suitable for adults as well as children.
During the purification process of the fish oil, a special clay is used which lightens the color of the oil through adsorption of undesirable agents. This clay is then filtered out. This process also reduces heavy metals, PAHs, and removes some oxidation by-products. During this natural purification, the structure of the oil is unchanged, unlike molecular distillation that radically splits apart the oil molecules.
QNL strives to avoid all undesirable binders, fillers or flowing agents. The last step of this natural processing of the fish oil is the addition of mixed natural tocopherols (including alpha, beta, and gamma forms). Tocopherols are fat-soluble antioxidants in the form of vitamin E. Tocopherols are used as natural preservatives to prevent the fish oil from oxidation as well as to ensure oil stability over time. Once the oil is blended with the tocopherals, it is then packaged using nitrogen to preserve the quality of the oil as well as to help further prevent rancidification (oxidation). Finally, after the manufacturing process, the daily values declared on the label are verified one more time to ensure potency was maintained all the way to the end product.
QNL’s Commitment to Quality Assurance
Quantum Nutrition Labs remains committed to producing the highest quality dietary supplements and strives to use sophisticated and scientifically accepted methods to ensure quality control and assurance. QNL consistently has raw materials tested for pesticides, non-organic materials, heavy metals (arsenic, mercury, cadmium and lead), residual solvents on extracts, pathogenic microbiology, identity, moisture content and potency (when relevant). QNL will continue to evaluate innovative analytical techniques to ensure the highest standard of quality is obtained so you can achieve your optimal health! Our Fish Oil is purified fish oil that is naturally refined to remove contaminants and saturated fatty acids to leave only healthy triglycerides as OMEGA-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids in the form of DHA and EPA. It is naturally preserved from oxidation using mixed tocopherol and other appropriate antioxidants. The Fish Oil packaging process utilizes filtration and inert gas blanketing to further ensure purity and preserve the product.
