Quality and Purity

The fish oil in Super EPA comes from anchovies, which are small fish that have low levels of mercury and PCBs to begin with. However, the fish oil is also molecularly distilled to ensure it is free of cholesterol, PCBs and mercury. It also includes mixed tocopherols to help keep the oil from oxidizing.

Frequently Asked Questions

The following are the most common questions I get from members of my online fitness training program, Facebook group members, or blog readers. These are my answers and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Thorne.

How much fish oil should I take each day?

Most of the research showing the benefits mentioned above have participants taking one to two grams of EPA/DHA per day, or two to six fish oil softgels.

Conservative recommendations for daily DHA and EPA intake range from one to four grams.

That said, some practitioners recommend much higher intakes for short periods of time, to offset the negative effects of a diet too high in omega-6 fats.

Could I just eat more fish to get my omega-3s?

A typical salmon steak contains about one gram of EPA and DHA, so if your diet consisted of mostly salmon, it would be possible. However, that’s improbably, so supplementation makes sense for most people.

Should I take Super EPA on an empty stomach or with food?

Take it with food.
