What is Fish Oil? Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), are vital to the normal functioning of the body, which belong to several different chemical families. The fat in fish contains so called Omega 3 PUFAs, which differ from Omega 6 PUFAs found in vegetable oils. Omega-3 and Omega-6 PUFAs have different roles in body metabolism. Fish oils contain about 50 different fatty acids, and are the main source of the Omega-3 essential PUFAs eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA levels are very low (or absent) in domesticated land animals. The habitat in which the fish grow has a major influence on their fatty acid composition.
Fish get Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) from eating plankton. The colder the water they live in, the higher their Omega 3 PUFA content. Pharma Nord therefore uses coldwater fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel which provide the highest levels of Omega 3 PUFAs.
Each capsule of Bio-Marine Plus contains 500mg of fish oil (in the form of free fatty acids), corresponding to an EPA content of 166mg and DHA content of 118mg, 100microgm of folic acid (equivalent to 50% RDA), and 1microgm of vitamin B12 (equivalent to 100% RDA).
Marine Plus Fish Oil Supplements is a unique fish oil formula with 65% Omega-3 in the form of free fatty acids for direct absorption in the digestive system. Omega-3 with its content of EPA and DHA is known to contribute to normal functioning of the heart, plus maintenance of normal vision and brain function.
Bio-Marine Plus even contains Folic Acid and vitamin B12 – a vitamin combination that contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism and psychological functions. Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

I've been taking this for years and it stabalizes my cholesterol levels. I've been taking this for a couple of months in conjuction with the red rice tablets that are suppose to lower cholesterol levels; I'm curious to see what this'll result in.

I have been using fish oil supplements for years now from a different brand. There are a lot of differences, price included. What I noticed is that my hair becomes silky smooth if I take these for a while and there's no heavy stomach feeling if I take them during dinner. They don't keep me up at night. Very happy with these and I got faith in this company now. Thanks

These supplements are used by my elderly parents in law and they have no negative experiences with them. They also have to take these as prescribed by their GP.

It's too early to give a serious review on this supplement, since I've been only taking it for 1 month. Compared to other similar products from different brands, this Pharma Nord combined with Farmaline gives the best quality/price according to me.

This bio product is good for the healthy flow of omega 3 and vitamin B12. No side-effects. My GP measured to see if there was an actual positive result by taking 2 capsules a day. This was more than enough for me, so the usage of 1 to 3 capsules a day needs to be individually measured.
