What is pharmaceutical grade fish oil?

Fish. You love to eat it, you can now also drink their oil for your health! Not the most appetizing option, but hey – we’re doing what we gotta do to stay healthy, am I right? But not all fish oils are created equal – enter pharmaceutical grade fish oil.

The ABCs of Omega-3

Before diving into this mysterious “pharmaceutical-grade” madness, let’s first get on the same page about omega-3 fatty acids.


Yes! That’s right. Omega-3 fatty acids (of which there are three main types: ALA, EPA and DHA) are essential fats that our body cannot produce independently. We need them but cannot make them ourselves… like how no one’s mother can be better than yours…except here it’s not a subjective opinion; it’s factual information!

We get these good ‘ol omegas from our food choices such as oily fish (goodbye taste buds), nuts and seeds.

But why should we care if they’re in our diet or not?

Great question! Omege-3s have been linked to numerous possible health benefits including:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Improving cognitive function
  • Boosting immunity

Just like hearing someone say “I don’t watch Marvel movies”, if you don’t want any of the above perks go ahead and skip out on omega 3 supplements entirely!

Enter Pharmaceutical Grade…

There are various forms of omega 3 supplements – glug down some cod liver oil straight up or choose something more civilized without tasting too much like antifreeze cough cough inferior brands

Pharmaceutical-grade has set itself apart from other grades due to its purity level through purification processes beyond regulatory standards.

### Is It Comparable To The Name Brands In The Market Today?

Um, no. This is where pharmaceutical-grade separates itself from the likes of regular fish oil supplements found in supermarket aisles. The purity level guaranteed on this label has been confirmed by independent laboratories, so you’re not at risk of any unknowns hiding inside like a clown under your bed for seven months straight.

This suggests that one can rely on it more than other popular brands we see advertised everywhere around us (yeah we are talking about you GNC!).

How Is Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil Made?

The secret ingredient to separating the top dogs from all others when creating these supplements comes via the molecular distillation process if cleanliness was an Olympic Sport then pharmaceutical grade would take home some shiny medals.

What exactly does this mean? During manufacturing, contaminants – such as heavy metals and environmental pollutants – are removed while retaining the omega 3 fatty acids for consumption. Think less Casper… More Elsa-style purification but without anything resembling ice magic because contaminant-free humans don’t need science fiction treatments to keep their bodies healthy!

Aint nobody got time for PCB’s or DDT sneakily slipping into our bodily puddle!!!

What To Look Out For When Purchasing

Pharmaceutical Fish Oil

Like looking both ways before crossing the street-or not- there are elements one must consider when purchasing something with that elusive “pharmaceutical-grade” title slapped across its bottle:

  • % of EPA & DHA: You want somewhere between two to four grams combined as high amounts cannot only be toxic but also prevent blood coagulation!
  • Additional clarification details regarding their source
  • Seal rating. One needs reassurance especially after buying off Amazon sellers whose reviews were probably written by them handling fake profiles using various VPNs.

## In Conclusion

When it comes down to matters of health, learning how different product types relate can lead people towards making better decisions about what type they choose to put in/under their bodies.

Whilst going down the omega-3 rabbit hole, it leads one straight to pharmaceutical grade fish oils. Thankfully this is not some marketing ploy and purity levels separating themselves from various commercially available brands that might make consumers question if they’ll turn into an alien species after consuming.
