In response to questions you may have about the purity of Coromega®, our patented fish oil product, we are pleased to inform you that Coromega not only meets, but exceeds all national and international standards for fish oil purity.
Coromega begins with specially formulated fish oil. Our fish oil is purified using a patented process, which results in the highest purity fish oil available on the market. In addition, the fish oil used in Coromega is formulated to ensure freshness.
We then go further, taking the fish oil and turning it into a creamy, delicious emulsion using a patented formula and manufacturing process. These steps not only ensure unparalleled purity and freshness, but also dramatically increase the bioavailability of the product.
Our Coromega products are the highest quality fish oil on the market:
- Coromega is NSF certified.
- Coromega is ConsumerLab approved.
- Coromega exceeds the requirements of the IFOS testing program.
- Coromega exceeds the requirements of the GOED monograph. (GOED is the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3)
Attached is a comparison of Coromega with GOED and IFOS specifications.
