Do not compromise on purity of fish oils. If the manufacturer cannot provide purity testing, you should not be consuming it since heavy metals are other toxins are commonly found in fish oils and will affect your health.

This is the best tasting fish oil I've ever used, and the purest one in the US free of heavy metals and toxins. There is no fishy taste or smell. Just an orange scent. A huge hit at the conferences when we do taste testing. For arthritis, I recommend you take a full tablespoon per day into a smoothie. I personally take a spoon and wash it down with water or juice. Within one week, you'll notice the anti-inflammatory effects! More importantly, no toxicity to your liver or stomach like the over-the-counter pain killers and anti-inflammatories. Most noticeable, are the immediate improvements to your skin and hair. You will get compliments!
Super EFA Liquid is indicated for cardiovascular disorders such as coronary heart disease and arrhythmia; for all nervous system conditions, including cognitive function, depression and senile dementia; and for inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
The special omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil have been shown to keep blood triglycerides in check, to help maintain the integrity of the platelets and have anti-inflammatory activity helping arthritis, asthma, and skin conditions.
How are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) broken down in the body? Does it require much work from the liver?
EFAs are broken down in the gut (hydrolyzed) and the individual fatty acids are absorbed by the enterocytes lining the GI tract. The enterocytes assemble the fatty acids and glycerol into triglycerides.The triglycerides and other fat soluble nutrients are collected and assembled into chylomicrons, which are absorbed by the lacteals (lymphatic vessels of the small intestines). The chylomicrons flow with the lymph into the blood and reaches every tissue in the body. In the tissues the triglycerides are absorbed in a similar way as triglycerides are absorbed by the enterocytes. In the tissues the fatty acids can be metabolized into for example local hormones.
The hydrolization process in the gut requires lipase secreted by the pancreas and bile synthesized in the liver and secreted from the gallbladder.
Arthritis & Anti-Inflammatory Taking 2.6 grams of Omega 3 fish oils per day results in significant clinical benefit for arthritis sufferers, and reduces the need for antirheumatic medication as shown in numerous studies including a one year double blind controlled trial published in Arthritis & Rheumatism 1994 V.37(6). EPA is a direct precursor to the omega-3 family of anti-inflammatory eicosanoids (prostaglandins, leukotrienes and thromboxanes). Increase in cellular concentration of EPA stimulates the release of anti-inflammatory eicosanoids, which counterbalance the effect of the pro-eicosanoids released when arachidonic acid is the precursor fatty acid. Consumption of EPA is therefore beneficial to sufferers of chronic inflammatory conditions.
Skin, hair, lungs, and GI health Omega-3 fatty acids can help to improve the integrity of the skin. This includes dramatic improvement to dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema. Omega-3 fatty acids can help to improve the integrity of the epithelial tissue lining the lungs and intestinal tract. Added vitamin E is to enhance stability of the oil.
General Health Omega-3 fatty acids are critical components of a healthy diet. The body cannot manufacture essential Omega-3s and must obtain them from either food such as flaxseeds, fish, and walnuts, or through supplementation. The most important types of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oils are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). The body needs EPA to produce prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that help to protect the heart and the cell membranes. DHA is required for the normal development of the brain, the eyes, and the reproductive system.
Cancer Both laboratory and animal tests have shown that Omega 3 fatty acids help prevent cancer, and build up the immune system so that it can better fight against certain types of cancer cells.
Heart disease, blood pressure, clots, & stroke The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oils increase good cholesterol (high density lipoproteins, HDL) in the blood while decreasing bad cholesterol (triglycerides). Furthermore, these omega-3 oils protect the heart by preventing the formation of blood clots and fatty deposits (plaque) on the arterial walls. In people with coronary heart disease, fish oils may help to reduce the risk of blood clots in the brain or in the lungs; pain associated with angina; and the risk of cardiac arrhythmias. Fish oils also help to maintain healthy circulation.
Investigation of the possible benefits of fish oils began when researchers discovered that Eskimos rarely suffer from heart attacks or rheumatoid arthritis even though their diet is high in fat from fish, seals, and whales. Because these sources of fat have a high omega-3 fatty acid content, it was discovered that the type of fatty acid that they contained helped to protect the Eskimos from the usual consequences of high-fat diets. The Eskimos high omega-3 fatty acid diet helped decrease their risk of heart attacks, strokes and abnormal heart rhythms.
A study of 20,551 doctors who ate at least one fish meal per week cut their risk of heart attacks in half compared to those who ate fish once a month or less. In the 5-year Lyon study, men who followed a Mediterranean diet with emphasis on omega-3-rich oils and fish, fruits and vegetables had their heart attack rates reduced by 70% compared to subjects in the control group.
EPA and DHA help to disperse aggregations of the saturated fatty acids keeping deposits of saturated fatty acids and cholesterol from accumulating in arteries. This prevents platelet aggregation that can lead to blood clots and, as a result, lowers blood pressure.
ADHD Omega 3 fatty acids have also been shown to be effective in developmental behavioral dysfunction in children. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 1995 reported that 53% of children with ADHD had significantly lower concentrations of Omega 3 fatty acids than the control children. Numerous Autistic children have also been found to be deficient in Omega 3 fatty acids.
Low Oxidation Manufacturing Process Genestra Fish Oils are molecularly distilled. In addition, since the purification process does tend to damage and oxidize the oils, their oxidation levels are measured after the purification process, not before (which other companies have been caught doing) in order to reflect the true oxidation value of the oil.
Genestra uses molecular distillation to purify their oil which is the "gold standard", but it has to be done without any oxygen present . In order to achieve this, Genestra heats the oil a little bit at a low pressure in a nitrogen atmosphere with no oxygen. The low pressure is used so the boiling point is lower. Then, oxidation levels are tested afterwards.
The Super EFA Liquid by Genestra is working great... and no fishy burps!

I have been using the Super EFA Liquid fish oil since my naturopath recommended it five years ago. I have yet to read a fish-oil product label with as much DHA & EPA in it. Equally important, and this would be a deal breaker- it doesn't taste like fish!

My doctor recommended this as an alternative to taking multiple fish oil capsules a day for arthritis. One teaspoon supplies 4,500 mg of fish oil, which I mix into my morning protein shake. It has a pleasant citrus smell (not fishy). Also, it's made from small fish---anchovies and sardines---and has the optimal ratio of omega-3's.

I actually give this to my Border Collie puppy; I feed a home-cooked diet formulated by a canine nutritionist, and this is the Omega-3 product she recommends due to its quality and high EPA/DHA. My puppy has done great on this. When I first got her at 8-1/2 weeks, her coat was a little dry and scraggly, she had dandruff, and she was quite itchy; two months later, her coat is thick and shiny, the dandruff is gone, and the itching has diminished considerably.
