Fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids have been used for depression, anxiety, cancer, macular degeneration, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure, along with so many other health benefits. We all have heard how fish oil is so good for the body, but what kind is the best?
For this review, I received one bottle of Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil. I thought the ingredients looked like they would be really good for you and then I read it had Concentrated Fish Oil Omega-3 Ethyl Esters. I really can't recommend this Fish Oil, because of the ethyl esters. I have been doing alot of reading, about fish oils with triglycerides and how they are better for you, than fish oils with ethyl esters. You will get 70% higher absorption of concentrated fish oil in triglyceride form, over ethyl ester form.
Here's the difference between Triglycerides and Ethyl Esters
Fish oil supplements in the natural Triglycerides form, offer numerous advantages when compared to those in the Ethyl Esters form: oils in a Triglycerides form are completely safe to consume, are naturally occurring, provide increased absorption, and are much more stable. Therefore, since Triglycerides fish oil can be more effectively absorbed then it can be potentially better at reaching therapeutic ranges in comparison to Ethyl Esters fish oil. While Ethyl Esters are a source of omega-3 fatty acids, research shows that they are not as beneficial as Triglycerides and additional research is required to fully assess potential toxicity. While some countries (e.g. Australia) have gone as far as banning the sale of Ethyl Esters, other countries such as the US, Canada, and the UK allow the sale of the Ethyl Esters form and furthermore do not require any additionally labeling. These supplements are therefore often incorrectly labeled as “Fish Oil” and pose a risk to those who must avoid ingestion of alcohol.
