    Our unique Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil comes from the heads of freshly harvested salmon.

    Its brilliant orange color comes from astaxanthin: the carotenoid-class antioxidant that wild salmon acquire by eating krill and other zooplankton.

    Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon are among the purest of all ocean fish, according to the EPA, FDA, and independent scientists. (Visit our Purity page to learn more.)

    We fully purify our oil using molecular distillation, which removes mercury and manmade chemical contaminants without affecting the structure or value of its omega-3 fatty acids.

    Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon are among the purest of all ocean fish, according to the EPA, FDA, and independent scientists. (Visit our Purity page to learn more.)

    These unique attributes make Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Oil a rare, powerfully health-promoting omega-3 supplement. NSF International certifies that our Sockeye Salmon Oil provides the omega-3 levels stated on the label.

    Omega-3 health benefits
    The U.S. FDA has approved two qualified health claims regarding omega-3 EPA and DHA:

    • Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
    • Consuming EPA and DHA combined may reduce blood pressure and reduce the risk of hypertension, a risk factor for CHD (coronary heart disease).  However, FDA has concluded that the evidence is inconsistent and inconclusive.

    The long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) that abound only in seafood (especially fatty fish) – and in supplemental fish and krill oils – are essential to human life and support optimal health in key organs, systems, and life stages*:

    • Aging
    • Vision
    • Metabolism
    • Inflammation
    • Cardiovascular
    • Fetal development
    • Skin, hair, and nails
    • Joints and movement
    • Cognition (thinking), attention, mood, and memory

  • Serving/Care

    Storage
    Store in a cool, dry, dark place, and refrigerate after opening.

    The Salmon Oil will remain fresh for 90 days after opening the bottle IF the bottle is immediately recapped and refrigerated after each use.

    Note: Our Salmon Oil will become cloudy if refrigerated or frozen, but this is no cause for concern. (For more, see "Cloudy Fish Oil Myth", below.

    Daily Dose
    The recommended dosage for healthy adults is 3/4 teaspoon daily (providing about 600mg of omega-3s) or as recommended by a health care professional.

    This advice is based on intake recommendations from authoritative scientific bodies. To learn more, click here .

    It is best to take Salmon Oil with a meal. If you experience excessive occurrences of fishy burps, try our lemon-flavored Salmon Oil capsules.

    CAUTION: Salmon oil should be taken at the recommended dose. Consult with your physician before taking substantially higher doses, or taking this product if you are pregnant, diabetic, allergic to fish or iodine, using blood thinners, have a diagnosed cardiac condition or immune disorder, or anticipate surgery.

    Omega-3s for mothers, infants, and children
    Here's what widely respected pediatrician William Sears, M.D. told us in respose to our question on this subject:

    • "... experts attending a 2005 workshop recommended at least 300 mg a day for pregnant and nursing mothers (most mothers get only 20-25% of this amount, unless they take omega-3 fish oil supplements). In our medical practice we have mothers take at least 500 mg of DHA per day during pregnancy and lactation."
    • "The recommendation for infants is at least 200mg of DHA per day, which is the dosage added to infant formulas."
    • "Practically speaking, infants under one year old receive their omega-3s through mother's milk or fortified formula, but it is perfectly safe and perhaps even beneficial for infants to be given extra Vital Choice fish oil at a dose of around 300 mg a day of DHA. I stress DHA rather than EPA because DHA is the main brain growth omega 3."

    NOTE: There are as yet no official omega-3 intake recommendations for children over two years of age, so please consult your pediatrician.
    A dose of 300 mg of DHA would be provided by 8 of our 500 mg Salmon Oil capsules, 4 of our 1000 mg capsules, or 1 teaspoon of our Liquid Salmon Oil.
    CAUTION: If your child has never had fish or fish oil, please check for seafood allergies (which are uncommon) by rubbing some Salmon Oil on his or her skin, in a less sensitive area such as the lower leg.

    Salmon oil dose for pets
    For pet use, a typical daily serving is 1/4 tsp. (1000mg) per 25 lbs. of body weight,  or as recommended by a veterinarian.

    A cloudy fish oil myth
    Our Salmon Oil will become cloudy if refrigerated or frozen, and this is no cause for concern.

    Some people assert, inaccurately, that if a fish oil becomes cloudy when cold this means it is not as pure or efficiacious as an oil that remains clear when cold.

    But if a fish oil becomes cloudy when cold this simply means that it retains some of the shorter chain fatty acids -- including small amounts of saturated fatty acids -- that occur naturally in fish.

    In fact, most of what we know about the myriad health benefits of omega-3 fish oils comes from studies involving consumption of whole fish, which, like our Salmon Oil, contain small amounts of saturated fatty acids. In any case, the the current scientific consensus holds that saturated fatty acids are not inherently harmful to heart-health.

    Fish oils and blood thinners
    The omega-3s in fish oil possess properties associated with “blood thinning”, but according to research by American Heart Association (AHA) consultant William Harris, Ph.D., they do not appear to pose any risk to persons taking blood-thinning drugs (e.g., Coumadin).

    To learn more about this research, published in the American Journal of Cardiology, see Fish Oil, Bleeding, and Surgery.
