THE PUREST OMEGA-3 PRODUCTS
Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil is proud to be a member of the GOED organization and support their mission to educate consumers on the health benefits of EPA & DHA and produce high quality concentrated Omega-3 products.
Their manufacturing facility is regularly inspected by the FDA about once a year. Their Quality Assurance department inspects all products throughout the process to make sure each lot meets the high standards set for their Wiley's Finest products. Each carton is signed by the Wiley Family to convey the trust they have in their products and the quality they deliver to their customers.
Unlike many other sources of fish oil, Alaska Pollock is caught for human consumption. Fresh caught fish are filleted, frozen, and processed within hours onboard factory vessels or at shore plants. Then their fish oils are shipped from Alaska to their FDA registered manufacturing facility in Coshocton, Ohio in airtight oxygen barrier containers.
At their Ohio refinery, they combine fish oil with food grade ethanol to make fatty acid ethyl esters. This allows Omega-3 fatty acids to be separated from saturated fatty acids that they don’t want. Their cold extraction and further concentration results in up to 85% Omega-3 yield. They then use a molecular distillation process that removes fishy odors and taste, resulting in extremely fresh oil.
Their final step is to carbon filter the fresh, concentrated Omega-3 fish oil to remove any PCB’s, chlorinated organ pollutants, and toxic heavy metals. They then encapsulate their fish oil into easy-to-swallow softgels, bottle it up, and insert into post-consumer content product cartons.
From start to finish, their ingredients are 100% US sourced, refined, and packaged by American workers. They are proud to say that they supply the finest 100% American made Omega-3 ingredients!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is unique about Wiley's fish oil?
Their products are made from certified sustainable, concentrated Wild Alaskan Fish Oil, caught by American fishermen and concentrated by American workers at their family owned & operated plant in eastern Ohio. Most fish oil supplements sold in the U.S. are produced from Peruvian Anchovy Oil, caught in South America. The entire catch is ground up and rendered into oil and fishmeal (what is called a reduction fishery). The fishmeal is fed to farmed salmon, and the oils are used for paints, lubricants, leather tanning, or dietary supplements. Not their fish oil! Their oils are recovered from the eyes, heads, and livers of wild fresh fish caught for human consumption.
Can I take too much fish oil?
The challenge in the western diet is getting enough EPA & DHA Omega-3 from fish, not too much! However, like all oils such as soybean oil, olive oil, or peanut oils, too much fish oil can cause diarrhea. The FDA recommends a maximum consumption of 3g per day of EPA+DHA and no more than 2g per day through supplements.
Will their fish oil products give me fishy burps?
Not typically. Their products are carefully deodorized by American workers. The extra care and attention shows in their extremely fresh tasting oils. Their fish oils are as good or better than any product on the market. However, all EPA & DHA Omega-3 products made from fish oil, krill, and algae taste and smell like fish, so some extremely sensitive palates may detect a mild fresh fish taste and odor, even in otheir products. When EPA & DHA Omega-3s oxidize, they break down into compounds that smell fishy. A good rule of thumb for a fish oil product is to apply the same standard you would for fresh fish from the grocery store or sushi restaurant: if it smells or tastes extremely fishy and unpleasant, don't consume it. All of their products are satisfaction guaranteed.
How is their fish oil produced?
Unlike many other sources of fish oil, Alaska Pollock are caught for human consumption. Fresh fish are filleted onboard factory vessels or at shore plants within hours of the catch. The filets are quickly frozen and the oil is extracted.
How are their Omega-3 fish oil concentrates made?
Their fish oils are shipped from Alaska to their FDA registered manufacturing facility in Ohio in airtight oxygen barrier containers. They combine the fish oil with food grade ethanol to make fatty acid ethyl esters. This allows Omega-3 fatty acids to be separated from saturated fatty acids that they don't want.|
What are omega-3 fatty acids and why are they beneficial?
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as contributing to healthy eyes and supporting cell membranes in the brain; they are associated with many other health benefits, including maintaining heart health.
What is EPA and why is it beneficial?
EPA is eicosahexaenoic acid, a 20 carbon polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish and algae. EPA has been found to promote a healthy circulatory system and consequently a healthy heart, support proper immune function, support joint flexibility, promote good mood and emotional well-being and is essential for reducing inflammation.
What is DHA and why is it beneficial?
DHA is docosahexaenoic acid, a 22 carbon polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish and algae. DHA has been found to be essential for memory and cognitive function and supportive of a healthy pregnancy. DHA is a very important structural Omega-3 that provides support for visual and brain development of fetuses and infants.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels daily with food. Store in a cool, dry place.
