Omega 3 is derived from refined natural fish oil originating mostly from; sardines, anchovies, mackerel and swai. The oil is harvested by a sustainable fishery in the Peruvian upwelling region which is one of the richest marine environments in the world. The fishery is highly protected and regulated by the Peruvian government to ensure that it remains biodiverse and highly sustainable. Each product is received with a certificate of analysis which includes several essential testing parameters and results that certify its high standard of quality. Testing includes tests for mercury and heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and cadmium. In addition, Modere performs our own tests for these impurities once received from the supplier.
