Each soft-gel capsule contains 1000 mg of omega-3 essential fatty acid in the triglyceride form (sourced from Anchovy). Studies have shown the triglyceride form was hydrolyzed by lipase 12 to 15 times faster than the ethyl ester or monoglyceride form. It is sourced from a strategically-placed facility in the far South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile, minimizing transit time. Unique and gentle patented processes are used to purify the oil from contaminants, yielding a colorless level with record-setting low TOTOX levels. Each batch of Biomega 1000 oil has a certified origin; it can be traced back to who caught the Anchovies and when they were caught.
