Low Mercury Fish Oils Best : Look For An Omega Oil Low In Mercury


When considering the best source of fish oil, look no further than OILY FISH…however, if you’re like me and not that keen on oily fish, then consider an omega oil supplement. When selecting an omega oil supplement you have the option of a plant based oil such as Flax seed, or an oily fish capsule.

When selecting your oil look for one that is labelled ‘low Mercury’, contaminants such as this can be bad for health if consumed to excess, so an omega oil that is low in this is ideal. A flax based oil such as Optimum Health Omega Oil Blend will be inherently low in mercury as it isn’t sources from fish, which can have high mercury levels due to their feeding habits and mercury levels in the sea.
