Dr. Andrew Weil Fish Oil Supplements Now Incorporate MEG-3

Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, is pleased to announce that Dr. Andrew Weil, in association with Twinlab, Corp., has incorporated the MEG-3® EPA/DHA fish oil ingredient in his Omega-3 Complex dietary supplements as well as in the Weil Mood Support Formula and Weil Cardio Support Formula. To demonstrate to consumers that his products contain only the highest quality fish oil, Dr. Weil has placed the MEG-3® trust the source® logo on the front of the packaging.

The Omega-3 Complex dietary supplements are available in three sizes: 30, 60, and 90 softgel bottles. Each softgel contains 500 mg of MEG-3® Omega-3: 333 mg of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and 167 mg of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). This product is currently available online and in health and natural retail stores, such as Whole Foods and Vitamin Shoppe, throughout the United States.

The Weil Mood Support Formula contains 500 mg of MEG-3® EPA/DHA per capsule, along with other ingredients. Several studies suggest that the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil may be helpful in maintaining optimum brain function.

The Weil Cardio Support Formula is a combination of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and MEG-3® Omega-3 fatty acids. Research has shown that Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy cardiovascular function

Dr. Andrew Weil said, “We want to provide our customers with the best products possible so we do not take short cuts when it comes to the quality and purity of the ingredients we use. We decided to switch to the MEG-3® EPA/DHA fish oil because Ocean Nutrition Canada offers high quality, molecularly distilled fish oil that is stringently tested for heavy metals (such as mercury and lead) and other contaminates (including PCBs).”

Ian Lucas, Executive Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing at ONC, said “We pride ourselves on producing MEG-3â, the purest, safest fish oil, and we are very happy to be working with Dr. Weil who shares our commitment to the highest quality standards.”
