Essential Facts about Fish Oils

Essential Facts about Fish Oils
Posted in: Articles

We all know that consuming essential fats contained in fish oil can have great health benefits, including supporting heart health and brain function.

Getting the right level through diet alone may be difficult, especially if your health is compromised and your daily needs might be higher. Not all fish oils are equal, so what makes BioCare products unique?

Choosing a fish oil supplement can be complicated.

Some fish oil products are marketed as natural, some pure, and some sustainable with no negative impact on the environment. All of these things are important.

BioCare® fish oils are all of these things. And more.


Purity is vital because fish can pick up a lot of contaminants from polluted waters. Our fish oil comes from wild anchovies and sardines swimming in clear pacific waters. Because these small fish are low down the food chain, they accumulate minimal levels of pollutants. They are then further purified during manufacture using the best possible technology and so easily exceed all levels of purity set out by the EU’s stringent standards. Our fish oils also have FDA GRAS status as an additional assurance of their quality. The end product is free of trans-fats and contains virtually undetectable, low levels of peroxides, heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins and other contaminants.

There is no purer fish oil available on the market.

Our purity information also shows that our fish oil does not go rancid during its shelf-life. Our unique Multox® antioxidant system protects the oils from rancidity for up to 4 months after opening.

Sustainably Sourced

The fish we use are from deep waters off the coast of Peru in sustainable fisheries. There is no risk of overfishing and in fact, the fish stock population has not changed in size or diversity for over 30 years. In more detail, the fish oil is extracted from by-products (fishmeal) of wild fish which has been caught for their protein to supply other industries. No fish are caught for exclusive production of our fish oil which means that our oil production contributes to a sustainable chain of food production by helping to eliminate a waste stream.


Our fish oils are all natural ‘triglyceride’ form, just as they are found in food. This form is known to be the best for the body to use. Other forms such as ethyl ester , fond in cheaper products, deliver high levels of essential fatty acids but have been chemically modified to do so and are ultimately not as well used by the body. So although they may look high strength, they may not deliver what they claim.


Effectiveness is at the centre of everything we do. Our fish oils are optimally absorbed by the body. In most products we use a natural lipase enzyme to remove shorter chain fats from triglycerides just as the body would do when digesting them. This NEO-3® process concentrates the oils naturally and makes them easier to digest. If you need to reach high levels of essential fats, our OmegaCcare is one of the most potent, yet natural fish oil liquids available and can easily be used to reach high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.


We also have a range of products to suit everyone. From capsules to liquids, and for adults and children. If you want to avoid fish oil, then we even have a great range of vegetarian and vegan essential fatty acids, including our groundbreaking new Vegan Omega-3 with vegan EPA and DHA from algae.

BioCare’s range delivers potency, efficacy, naturalness purity and sustainability, so choosing the right fish oil for you, no longer needs to be complicated.
