You may have heard of this already. Coromega supplement is the new kid on the block which is challenging the traditionally accepted fact that fish oil is to be taken in the form of capsules containing the oil inside.
This supplement instead delivers the oil inside a water emulsion, which is supposed to achieve higher levels of absorption in the body of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids present in the oil. Fact is, this is still a new technology which is under research, and should be some time before it can be conclusively proven if it’s really effective or not.
Now let’s take a look at the amount of omega 3 present in the Coromega supplement. This is an important point which determines if the oil is really any good or not. This supplement delivers 350 mg EPA and 230 mg DHA in a day’s serving. This is actually a healthy amount and should be good enough for providing the health benefits attributed to omega 3 fatty acids. The only problem is, it’s an old school of thought that mandates having an EPA rich oil, latest studies and research have indicated that DHA is the more beneficial fat of the two. That’s why many companies have started moving towards having DHA centric supplements.
Things look good for Coromega fish oil so far. Now let’s dig a bit deeper into it.
The first glaringly missing information from their website is – what is the source of their oil? Which species of fish is it extracted from and from which part of the world’s oceans? These are important questions as not all fish contain the same quantity and quality of omega 3. Wild, cold water fish like the hoki (found off the southern New Zealand coast) contain higher quality omega 3 than, say, a farm bred salmon found in Norwegian waters.
The purity of the oil in the Coromega supplement is also a grey area. While they have mentioned their oil is Molecularly Distilled, they do not mention to what standards it has been purified to. There are many internationally accepted standards like the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) or the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) that mandate the acceptable levels of contaminants in fish oil. It’s a wonder they do not deem fit to share which standard their oil’s purity meets.
A Better Choice
While Coromega fish oil may or may not claim what it does, it wouldn’t be prudent to try it out and experiment with your and your family’s health.
My recommendation? Opt for a tried and tested high quality supplement that contains high levels of omega 3 derived from wild fish, is thoroughly purified to strict standards and is open in sharing all facts with the consumer.
