Common Questions

Q: Why herring roe oil? What is it?
A: Fish roe (fish eggs) oil is commonly referred to as the caviar of fish oil because it is packed with powerful nutrients meant to cultivate new life—including high natural levels of phospholipid-bound DHA in a 3-to-1 DHA-to-EPA ratio. More importantly, the spring-spawning herring used are already being wild caught by a certified and sustainable fishery, meaning the harvesting doesn’t require additional fishing or impact on their ecosystem.

Q: Are the fish sources certified sustainable?
A: All of the fisheries we’ve partnered with for Omega Krill Complex are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or Friend of the Sea to ensure they exceed international sustainability and purity standards.

Q: Is Omega Krill Complex pure and free from contaminants?
A: Yes. In addition to meticulously selecting fisheries who exceed international standards in both sustainability and purity standards, Omega Krill Complex is third-party lab tested to ensure both purity and potency.

Q: What is GLA? Why GLA from Borage seed?
A: Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an essential fatty acid that’s hard to get from food alone, and supports healthy skin and immune function. Borage seed is the highest natural source of GLA, containing 20-26%. Blackcurrant contains 15-18% GLA and evening primrose just 8-12%.

Q: What is hydroxytyrosol from olive fruit?
A: Hydroxytyrosol is the naturally occurring polyphenol in olive fruit responsible for olive oil’s amazing cardiovascular support. When combined with fish oil and omega-3s, hydroxytyrosol can help protect them from oxidation.

Q: How is the olive fruit processed?
A: As a part of olive oil production, the olive fruit goes through a solvent-free natural extraction process of olive polyphenols to standardize the hydroxytyrosol.

Q: What are the sources of the wild fish oil concentrate?
A: Small cold-water sardine, anchovy and mackerel were specially selected due to their high omega-3 content and low potential for contamination due to their small size and relatively short lifespan. They are wild caught by a certified sustainable fishery deep in the Pacific Ocean, far from environmental contamination.

Q: What is the source of the lemon oil?
A: California lemons.

Q: Is there anything I can do to reduce the fishy burps I get when I take fish and krill oils?
A: Some people may experience the taste of fish if they burp after taking krill and fish oil supplements. This is because the valuable fatty acids begin their digestive journey in the stomach. To mitigate this experience, some people may choose to refrigerate (or even freeze) their bottle and/or take along with a diverse, flavorful meal.

A: No.

Q: Is the krill cold-pressed?
A: Yes.

Q: Does Omega Krill Complex contain gluten, wheat or soy?
