I've used other omega-3 products in the past and did not notice a difference in myself. With your product, I do! I am a 54-years-young registered nursing student and need all the extra clear thinking and good health I can get... thank you again for providing a pure product.

99% of omega-3 fish oil products suffer from several deficiencies — toxic contamination, low concentration, impaired absorption in the body and rancid oils.
Adding insult to injury, those fish oil products are priced the same as much higher quality fish oil products. The manufacturers assume that most consumers won't be able to figure out the difference.
Vitality Ultra-Pure is a prescription-grade omega-3 fish oil supplement available without a prescription. It is certified by the International Fish Oil Standards program to be free of toxins, 80% omega-3 concentration, highly-bioavailable and free of the oxidation that makes most fish oils go rancid.
It's also incredibly affordable, which is rare for a product of this quality.
That depends on whether you're taking fish oil just for general health, or to help you with some kind of condition.
We recommend at least 1 capsule a day if you're already in good health.
Note: This is only for a fish oil of 80% omega-3 concentration. You would have to take up to 6 capsules of other fish oils, which might put you at risk of contamination.
However, if you're trying to ensure better heart health, joint health, better focus or moods, or any other condition, we recommend you increase your dosage.

Unfortunately, it can be very difficult because all fish oil brands *claim* to be purified, but this claim isn't regulated by most governments.
An environmental group in California recently sued 8 companies because their fish oil products contained PCBs in excess of the legal limit. A government study in the UK found that several fish oil supplements had excessive levels of dioxin.
Furthermore, even if a company tests their fish oil, that doesn't mean every batch has been tested.
To address the ever-growing need for quality fish oil supplements, an organization called the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) was born.
The IFOS program was created not just to address the problem of fish oil contamination, but also many other problems that affect fish oil supplements: rancid oils, low concentration and poor absorption in the body.
IFOS grades fish oil supplements on a 5-star scale:
★ Passes All CRN/WHO Testing Categories
★ Greater than 60% Omega-3 Concentration
★ Oxidation Levels Less Than 75% of CRN Standard
★ PCB Levels Less Than 50% of CRN Standard
★ Dioxin Levels Less Than 50% of WHO Standard
The CRN is the Council for Responsible Nutrition and the WHO is the World Health Organization, both of which IFOS exceeds in the strictest of its standards.

Fact: Most fish oils in the United States are illegal in several European countries.
Why? Because of very poor absorption rates in the body.
Fish oil is found in nature as a triglyceride (TG). When TG fish oil is purified, it becomes an ethyl ester (EE). The problem? EE fish oil is absorbed almost 30% less than natural fish oil.
However, EE can be converted back into a triglyceride, which is called a re-esterified triglyceride (rTG). This fish oil is actually absorbed by the body 24% more than natural TG fish oil, and 70% more than EE!
Most fish oil manufactures skip this step in order to save money because they think most people won't know the difference!
Vitality Ultra-Pure Omega-3 is the much more highly-absorbable rTG fish oil, as verified by the IFOS program. Order Now »
Because fish oil is an oil, it's at risk of oxidation, which turns oils rancid.
Oxidized fish oil can actually do more harm than good and cause all kinds of problems in your body, so you definitely want to avoid them.
Tip: If your fish oil smells fishy, it has been oxidized — throw it out!
However, with quality manufacturing processes, freshness can be maintained from the manufacturer all the way to your house.
The freshness of Vitality Ultra-Pure has been verified and certified by the IFOS program to ensure you receive the freshest fish oil possible. Order Now »

"I have been taking various vitamins and supplements all of my life. My family even makes fun of my over-flowing vitamin drawer. I have never had a dramatic change in my body or energy level until my daughter recommended that I take Vitality Ultra-Pure Omega-3 fish oils. I am 71 years old and have suffered from severe arthritis. After about 6 weeks of taking 2000 mg of fish oil a day, I noticed that I could stand up after playing with my grandson without any pain in my joints at all! I was over-joyed with this new freedom of movement. I can now move around like a 16 year old! This is the only supplement I have ever taken where I have noticed a dramatic difference. I am so grateful for finding the Vitality Ultra-Pure fish oils. Thank you."

"I'm a 22-year-old child care provider and a friend recommended that I try Vitality Ultra-Pure Omega-3 fish oils to boost my energy level. Although I am young, I find that working with children all day can be draining and I need my stamina. After only three weeks of taking the Omega-3 fish oils I noticed that my energy levels really improved. I found that even at 4pm on a rainy day I was able to smile and laugh and chase the kids around rather than count the seconds until the parents came to pick up their kids. Thanks a lot."

"As I was family planning, the evidence was overwhelmingly in favor of taking omega-3s both for me and for my baby in the short and long term. I was, however, very concerned with mercury and contaminants. With your omega-3 fish oil — its purity standards, high concentration of EPA and DHA, and Health Canada approvals — I knew I was getting a safe product which would deliver all the health benefits omega-3 has to offer. I delivered a healthy baby girl in three hours, who is well ahead of her development curve now at 6 months of age."
