Omega 3 fatty acid supplements are one of the most important health products you can buy. They have so many health benefits that it would take several pages to document them all. Those benefits include cardiovascular, mental health and anti-inflammatory benefits. But how do you make the right decision when it comes to choosing the best product for your family's health? Here are three things you must consider before choosing a product:

1. The type of fish used. Fish oil capsules can be made from many different types of fish, including tuna, mackerel, anchovies and more. Your first concern when choosing a fish oil supplements is that it should be made with fresh fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids. The best fish other ones which live in cold waters such as the areas near Alaska or New Zealand. There is one particular species of fish known as Hoki which is especially rich in the omega 3 fats, EPA and DHA. Its oil has some very unique and spectacular benefits.

2. The purity of the fishing zone. Unfortunately, the types of fatty fish which are the highest in omega 3 are also the ones which are often the most contaminated with heavy metals. Hoki, which is abundant in the clean, pristine seas of the Southern Ocean of New Zealand are not only very high in omega three fatty acids but also very low in contaminants. This is because they come from a fishing zone practically free of toxic contamination and far away from industrial pollution.

3. Molecular Distillation. This process involves taking the fish, extracting the oil and then removing all of the impurities that could be damaging to our health. Molecular distillation also concentrates the oil, making it a lot stronger. The result is a much more potent, much more effective and much cleaner product.

Therefore, the best fish oils in the world have to be 1) made with fish high in DHA and EPA, 2) sourced from the cleanest seas in the world and 3) they must be molecularly distilled to remove contaminants. In order to get the best out of your omega 3 supplement, it is crucial to educate yourself about the different types of fish oils available in the market today.
