Five Ways Metagenics Fish Oils Are Surpassing the Standards

Metagenics wants you to receive high quality fish oil products and value for money, which is why we are surpassing the Australian standards when it comes to purity, quality, taste and sustainable sourcing. Metagenics fish oils are also specifically designed to help manage certain conditions so you can expect the best therapeutic results possible. Take a look at the five ways Metagenics is raising the standards.

1. Purity

Metagenics removes impurities, pesticides and persistant organic pollutants (POPs) so you are provided with a high quality and pure fish oil. POPs such as DDT, DDD, DDE, dioxins, furans and dioxin-like PCBs can be found in fish oils and have the potential to impact human health. These pollutants can accumulate in the body and affect its ability to function optimally. This is why it is important to choose a Metagenics fish oil that has less than the Australian standards minimum level of POPs


The heavy metals mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are all contaminants that can be found in fish oils. Fish, particularly larger species, can absorb these heavy metal contaminants from their polluted environments. Heavy metal contaminants can be harmful for health, which is why it is important you choose purified fish oils. Metagenics fish oils not only meet Australian standards, but exceed them to provide you with a clean and pure fish oil of the highest quality.



2. Quality

Metagenics fish oils are manufactured using nitrogen flushing to produce formulas that are fresh and are protected from oxidation. Anisidine and Peroxide are indicators of the level of oxidation in a fish oil. Like all other oils, fish oils can become oxidised or rancid when exposed to heat, air or light. Oxidised fish oils not only taste and smell ‘fishy’, but also have limited health benefits and can even be harmful. This is why it is important you choose a fish oil of the highest quality with the lowest anisidine and peroxide values, like Metagenics fish oils.

3. Range of Fish Oils for Specific Conditions

Different health conditions can benefit from varying levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EPA/DHA). To ensure your patients get the best possible result, Metagenics have carefully created a range of fish oil products that contain therapeutic amounts of EPA and DHA to help with a variety of common health conditions.

For example, Omega Brain Plus contains 1.0 g of DHA and 209 mg EPA to help support normal, healthy brain function, as well as improve memory in people with age-related cognitive decline. Whereas MetaPure EPA/DHA Liquid contains a higher level of EPA with 2.0 g of EPA and 800 mg of DHA to temporarily relieve the pain and inflammation from mild arthritis and help maintain cardiovascular health.

4. Taste

The aftertaste that can occur with some fish oils can be unpleasant, which is why Metagenics fish oil liquids and capsules work hard to minimise the fishy aftertaste. Metagenics fish oils have a light fruity taste and do not contain synthetic flavours or sweeteners, so they are suitable for the most sensitive of individuals. Metagenics’ nitrogen flushing process also prevents the fish oils from oxidation, providing you with a fresh and great tasting product.

5. Sustainable Sourcing

Metagenics supports sustainable fishing and marine conservation by only sourcing small fish species using sustainable fishing practices. Metagenics fish oils are certified by Friend of the Sea, an independent organisation that audits and certifies products that practise sustainable fishing and reduce their environmental impact.
