How does fish oil compare to hemp seed oil?
This is because fish oils that haven’t been molecularly distilled contained high levels of dangerous contaminants. This is especially true for fish harvested in the North Atlantic Ocean and farmed salmon. Even the North Atlantic around the Artic circle is notorious for producing fish that have high levels of heavy metals, such as mercury, as well as PCB’s and dioxin.
These risks still exist today… in most fish oil supplements. Plus, most fish oil on the market today is actually a mixture of all types of fish from all around the world — and many, unfortunately, come from polluted waters. Molecular distillation by a competent manufacturer should remove these contaminants. Nonetheless, it is still desirable to start the process with the least contaminated fish possible. Better still, seriously consider a safer source altogether.
Our hemp seed oil is an excellent alternative to fish oil. Not only does it contain rich and balanced Omega 3 and Omega 6 EFA’s, it tastes great and you’ll be helping to save our planet’s depleting fish stocks!
