OmegaBrite General Questions

Omega-3s in General

  • A lot species of fish, specifically larger fish, may contain toxins. OmegaBrite is rigorously tested at every stage of production for impurities, toxins, and PCB’s.

  • Omega-3 is an anti-inflammatory molecule. Omega-3s may improve many conditions such as: high blood pressure, arthritis pain, inflammation and depression. Omega-6 is an inflammatory molecule and competes with omega-3 for the same chemical receptors in the body. Omega-6 is important in the body as it promotes inflammation but it is abundant in western diets. Many people may find it beneficial to lower their omega-6 levels and increase their intake in omega-3.

  • Some people can convert EPA and DHA from ALA, but many cannot and therefore often times people may not receive the full benefits of omega-3s from only consuming plant based products. Even for people who can convert ALA into EPA and DHA, the conversion rate is very small. Only 5% of ALA can be synthesized to EPA. Less than 0.5% of ALA can be synthesized to DHA.

  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a type of omega-3 that is essential for healthy immune function, cardiac function, mood, joint, eye, and brain health. Docosahexaenoic acid is also an omega-3 fatty acid. DHA is crucial for neurological and visual development in the human fetus and newborn, and is found in high concentration in the brain. EPA and DHA are only found in seafood and marine algae.

  • Arachidonic acid is a 20 carbon omega-6 fatty acid with 4 double bonds. Omega-6 fats are polyunsaturated with the first double-bond beginning with the 6th carbon atom from the methyl end of the molecule. An 18 carbon Omega-3 fatty acid with 3 double bonds, Alpha-linolenic acid is found in flaxseed and other plant oils. Note how just 3 double-bonds alters the chemical structure, making alpha-linolenic acid much more highly folded than an 18 carbon saturated fat.

How we make OmegaBrite

  • OmegaBrite is tested at key points during the manufacturing process to ensure purity and omega-3 concentration. The finished product is also sent for independent testing by, and the IFOS program with the results published on their website. OmegaBrite also tests the finished product every six months for three years in an independent stability study.

  • No, however we are third-party tested by Consumer Lab and members of the IFOS program.

  • Oxidization can affect the taste and smell of omega-3 oil. OmegaBrite takes great care to prevent oxidation. From using cooling blankets, to refrigerated trucks, to nitrogen blanketing and nitrogen flushing, we are leaders in the industry in preventing oxidation.

  • As part of our strict quality control program, we test every batch of OmegaBrite for dioxins, PCB’s, Mercury and other heavy metals. OmegaBrite test results meet or exceed the purity standards of California Proposition 65 and the Council for Responsible Nutrition.

  • OmegaBrite starts from small anchovies and sardines off the coast of Chile and Peru. The oil from these small, pure fish is then distilled and concentrated. Meticulous testing is completed before and after each stage of manufacturing. At all stages, nitrogen blanketing and nitrogen flushing is utilized to prevent oxidation and keep OmegaBrite tasting great. The oil, capsules, and then finished product are transported with the highest care, often utilizing refrigerated trucks and cooling blankets to ensure customer satisfaction. After even more testing and quality care the final orange box is delivered to your door step.

  • The fish oils used in OmegaBrite originate from sardines and anchovies from the cold, clean waters off the coast of Chile and Peru.

OmegaBrite Gelcaps and Scientific Studies

  • A study at the Pediatric Psychopharmacology Research Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, was completed using OmegaBrite which showed it to be as effective as atypical antipsychotics in rapid reduction of mania in children. OmegaBrite was also used in a study at Ohio State University that showed that OmegaBrite reduces both the perception of stress and the biological indicators of stress in a non-health condition impacted population. OmegaBrite is also being used in several other studies at major medical centers on depression, ADHD and bi-polar disorder in adults and ADHD, depression, bipolar and autism in children.

  • OmegaBrite was also used in a study at Ohio State University that showed that OmegaBrite reduces both the perception of stress and the biological indicators of stress in a non-health condition impacted population. The full study can be found here:

  • OmegaBrite is selected by prestigious institutions for research because those institutions can count on the purity, concentration, and efficacy of OmegaBrite. OmegaBrite’s rigorous quality program, testing procedures, and standards of excellence make it the easy choice for institutions like Harvard, University of Kentucky, and Ohio State.
