First of all, I'm going with the natural (TG) form of fish oil over the artificial (EE) form of fish oil for a few reasons: #1 I am not worried about contaminants in this product. #2 I want the benefits from the natural compounds lost in the EE conversion process. #3 TG absorption of Omega3s is slightly better than EE (when taken without a meal containing fatty foods).
The following data is from the IFOS review of this product (Carlson Labs Virgin Salmon Oil Complete), which does not expire until 07/2016, which means their test was done recently:
EPA 182 mg/softgel.
DHA 160 mg/softgel.
Total Omega-3s 431 mg/softgel.
PCB 2.3 ppb
Dioxins And Furans 0.198 ppt
Dioxin Like PCB's 0.279 ppt
These numbers are some of the highest Omega-3s per softgel, as well as lowest toxins per softgel, that I came across for natural (TG) fish oil (although, the high Omega-3 content is partially because these softgels contain 1250mg while most others only have 1000mg).
This product (Salmon Oil Complete) was unfortunately not specifically tested by Consumer Lab, but a very similar product was (Super Omega-3 Gems). Consumer Lab found that Super Omega-3 Gems matched the claims made by Carlson. The price per 100mg of Omega-3s was also found to be very well priced compared to other fish oils. It also passed purity and freshness tests. Also, "Carlson Laboratories was ranked as the top rated fish oil brand based on consumer satisfaction. These results were based on responses from over 10,000 ConsumerLab.com e-Newsletter subscribers collected in November and December of 2012".
I have no doubt that MANY folks are buying this oil thinking it's 100% salmon oil, when it's not. And why shouldn't they think that? They might be better off calling it "Salmon and Fish Oil Blend" to be more clear and avoid confusion, misrepresentation and disappointment, i.e. returns. Plus, none of it is from wild caught salmon (or anything else), so there's that issue as well if you care about where your fish comes from (more and more folks do).
If you are looking for 100% wild salmon oil, you might check out the following products: Solgar Wild Alaskan Full Spectrum Omega Supplement, 120 Count as a great, natural source of omega-3s. Solgar has been around for a long time. Another superior wild salmon oil (for 100% sockeye oil) is Vital Choice. Family-owned fishery in Alaska, and it's in fish gelatin instead of beef gelatin. Vital Choice Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, Omega-3, 1000mg, 180-Count. My third choice would be New Chapter's WholeMega. Kind of expensive for what it is, but a decent alternative.Read more ›
I am disappointed in Carlson because I thought it was a top dietary supplement company with truth in advertising and not selling misleading products.
