Omega-3s are essentials for every cell in the body and are necessary for a healthy mood, heart, brain, skin, and gut. Omega-3s even feed the gut, and have been shown to help probiotics “stick” to intestinal cells and boost bifidobacteria levels!

Quality & Testing
When it comes to fish oils, quality, purity and sustainability is important. Our Omega-3 Superior Quality 5 Point Program certifies our commitment to you: quality Omega-3 fish oils that are rigorously tested to ensure that they exceed quality, freshness and purity standards, while offering high potency EPA and DHA.
Sustainable & traceable sources: We source our omega-3 fish oils from wild-caught fish and sustainable fisheries that are strictly regulated by government agencies. These fisheries protect biodiversity, are environmentally responsible, and globally ranked #1 for sustainability. The waters in which the fish are harvested are closely monitored to assess biomass and to avoid the degradation of all marine species, including plankton, seabirds and sea lions. We also maintain full control of our fish oil supply chain: from harvest to manufacturing there is full visibility will all stages of production. Each and every batch can be traced back to the catch!
fresh technology™: Our omega-3 fish oils are processed using the most advanced technologies, resulting in the cleanest, purest and freshest fish oils available today – with optimal absorption and no fishy repeat or odour. Specific handling and storage procedures are monitored to protect the integrity of these specialized oils.
oMEGAcheck+™: Our 200+ step quality check process produces superior omega-3 fish oils that meet and exceed quality, freshness, and purity standards, as established by international governing bodies, including including the European Commission (EC), Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA), Health Canada, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED).
3rd party testing: all of our fish oils are subjected to 3rd Party Testing by International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) and we are proud to have achieved a 5 star rating! IFOS rated fish oils must meet the certain criteria of matching the label claim for EPA and DHA, and meet the safety standards for environmental contaminants set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
omega-3 oil freshness and safety is guaranteed based on these 3rd party test results for oxidation and contaminants including:
- Dioxins and furans
- Dioxin-like PCBs
- Acid value
Research studies: We’re committed to conducting research on our own products. Our omega-3 fish oils have been the subject of rigorous scientific investigation in human studies conducted across North America.
- Product Q&A
They can be taken together or apart – as long as they are taken with food, which improves absorption.
Our softgels are made using porcine gelatin.
Unfortunately we cannot advise safe usage past the expiry.
Research shows that a higher amount of EPA helps with mood support.
It most definitely is! You can read about our quality and testing in the Quality & Testing tab above.
Unfortunately, we cannot advise safe usage with prescribed medications and recommend that you consult with your health care provider.
All of our omega3 products are made from anchovies, sardines and mackerel.
Yes, omega3+ JOY is gluten-free.
There is no vitamin A in omega3+ JOY.
omega3+ JOY does not have a caution for pregnancy and breastfeeding, but we do recommend consulting with your health care practitioner for such situations.
On top of our own Quality Control processes, there have been strict Canadian government policies put into place since the nuclear accident in Japan. Both Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have made it a requirement that any raw material coming into Canada from Japan be accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis that verifies that it has been tested for radiation. Products will not be allowed entry into Canada without acceptable documentation verifying their safety. Note heavy metals are checked before an ingredient is accepted for use in our products, and the entire formula is tested again at the finished product level. Any ingredient or product that does not meet the requirements will not be released for sale.
We do not test for radiation except for when this makes sense due to geographic conditions. The Canadian government gets involved when there is a safety concern as you can see from all this information. Health Canada fully regulates natural health products and these regulations are very strict.
Our fish oil is not tested for radiation as it is from Peruvian waters.
omega3+ JOY no longer has an enteric coating. We have changed it to a super deodorized fish oil.
All of our natural health products, including omega3 products, are licensed by Health Canada and go through extensive testing. Omega3 products are tested for heavy metals, PCBs, oxidization, dioxins and furans.
We use the highest standards of testing for our fish oils, the IFOS. This is the International Fish Oil Standards and is third party testing.
The allowable limit of PCBs allowed is <45ppb (parts per billion) and most of our products test at <2ppb, one product tests at <8ppb. These are incredibly low numbers and speak to the high quality of our fish oils.
Our omega3 oil is first molecularly distilled to remove heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. Super deodorization refers to the extra step of using steam to gently remove aldehydes and ketones (components that contribute to fishy smell). Additionally, super deodorized oils have a special natural antioxidant system which protects the oils from oxidation which can cause the fishy smell to return. This is not a chemical process. Further to that our fish oils are tested for heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins to ensure safety before being released to the public.
Each softgel contains 1g of fat and 9 calories.
There is no shellfish actually used in the product but if there is an allergy we do not recommend usage.
For best results, it is important to take all of the omega3+ JOY with your main meal – preferably lunch or dinner. Oil doesn’t usually mix well with water, so try to limit your water consumption at the time of taking your omega3+ fish oil.
Those who are taking prescribed medications/ living with a pre-existing health condition should always seek out the opinion of their doctor before beginning any natural health supplement.
There is no citrus in the orange flavoring used in our omega3+ fish oils. This is a non-GMO all natural flavor blend, not an orange ingredient.
There is no vitamin A in omega3+ JOY.
Fish oil in general contains more than 50 fatty acids attached to the glycerol backbone in a form of esters called triacylglycerides. The oil used in omega3+ JOY is the highly researched ethyl ester form of concentrated fish oil, so in addition to EPA and DHA ethyl esters (the two main components) the oil contains primarily oleic acid (6 -11%), stearic acid (3-4%), 18:1 omega-7 (3-4%), arachidonic acid (3 -3.5%), 20:4 omega-3 (2-2.5%) and other fatty acids in lower quantities. This would be the case for our entire omega3+ line as it consists of only all high quality, premium fish oils.
There is 2.5 mg AT of vitamin E per 1 omega3+ JOY softgel.
