Omega-3 Superior Quality 5 Point Program

By Genuine Health


Our oMEGAcheck +™ quality program includes over 200 steps, producing superior Omega-3 fish oils that meet and exceed quality, freshness and purity standards. This quality program is in place from the handling of raw materials straight through to the finished product.  Additionally, our oils meet or exceed the quality guidelines established by international governing bodies including the European Commission (EC), Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA), Health Canada, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED).

Sustainable & traceable fish oils

Genuine Health is committed to sourcing fish oils that are from wild-caught, sustainable fisheries, strictly regulated by government agencies. These fisheries support biodiversity, are environmentally responsible, and globally ranked #1 for sustainability. The waters in which the fish are harvested are closely monitored to assess biomass and to avoid the degradation of all marine species, including plankton, seabirds and sea lions.  Genuine Health also maintains full control of our fish oil supply chain: from harvest to manufacturing there is full visibility will all stages of production. Each and every batch can be traced back to the catch!

Fresh technology™

Our fresh technology™ ensures optimal absorption and guarantees no fishy repeat or odour.  Our fish oils are carefully purified to completely eliminate the taste and smells that are typically associated with fish oils, and deodorized with a proprietary antioxidant system that stabilizes and protect the oils. Finally, specific handling and storage procedures are monitored to protect the integrity of these specialized oils. From catch to consumer, Genuine Health’s oils are processed using the most advanced technologies, resulting in the cleanest, purest and freshest fish oils available today.

Research Proven

Genuine Health is committed to conducting research on our own products, not relying solely on generic studies that illustrate the benefits of EPA and DHA. Genuine Health omega-3 oils have been the subject of vigorous scientific investigation in human studies conducted across North America.
