In a recent test of 35 fish oil and omega-3 fatty acid supplements conducted by independent health product tester ConsumerLab.com, two of Swanson Health Products’ EFA supplements—Swanson® EFAs Super EPA Fish Oil and Swanson® EFAs 100% Pure Krill Oil—received an “Approved” rating for quality, freshness, purity and enteric-coating performance.
Since the body can only manufacture limited amounts of EPA and DHA naturally, supplementation has become a popular option for those looking for the benefits of omega-3s. These supplements are acquired from a variety of natural sources such as fish oil, algal oil (from algae) and krill oil.
In the ConsumerLab.com product review, fish oil and omega-3 supplements were tested for freshness, purity, quality and enteric-coating performance. Not only did the Swanson EFAs supplements receive an “Approved” rating for the freshness, purity, quality and enteric-coating performance of the products, but they were also given the “low cost” distinction for its categories.
