Quick Overview

    Product Description

    EPA-DHA 720 provides 720 mg of omega-3 essential fatty acids from cold water fish per softgel—eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)—to help deliver greater support in fewer softgels.

    • Supplies high levels of EPA and DHA, which have been shown to support healthy function in body systems including cardiovascular, immune, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal. Omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA are vital for healthy nervous system function.
    • Features a unique antioxidant blend of vitamin E, ascorbyl palmitate, and rosemary to stabilize the oil for maximum freshness.

    How do I know that Metagenics marine oil is high quality?
    Metagenics unconditionally guarantees the quality and purity of our concentrated EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) formulas made with marine oil. Each formula contains only the highest quality, purity-certified omega-3 fatty acids that meet or exceed label claim (milligram, not just area percent). These formulas are also enhanced with antioxidants to aid product stability.
    The exceptional manufacturing and purification technology for our marine oils produces a product that exceeds the highest quality standards available for fish oil. It also exceeds the quality criteria for the Council for Responsible Nutrition's Omega-3 Monograph (the industry's current voluntary standard for purity). Our dedication to every detail and exhaustive testing includes:

    • In-house and third-party (independent) testing of raw materials (marine oil) for heavy metals and other harmful contaminants
    • In-house and third-party testing of EPA/DHA content of final product
    • In-house testing for yeasts, molds, and harmful bacteria
    • In-house testing for disintegration time and shelf stability

    Do you conduct third-party (independent) testing for verifying marine oil purity?
    EVERY batch of our marine oil concentrates is assayed by one of the top independent testing labs in the world and currently the world market leader in testing for dioxins. Testing every batch of concentrated oil prior to bottling or encapsulation is highly unusual and Metagenics may be the only professional nutraceutical company to practice this added safety measure. Checks for numerous contaminants are conducted including:

    • 220 pesticides
    • 6 heavy metals
    • 7 markers of PCBs
    • 15 dioxins & furans
    • 12 dioxin-like PCBs

    Does Metagenics fish oil contain mercury or other contaminants?
    We use fish oil from fresh, clean, deep-sea, wild-caught, cold-water fish with lower risk of contamination. In addition, our purity-certified fish oils undergo a proprietary refinement process to remove heavy metals and other environmental pollutants. An advanced molecular distillation process of every batch ensures the highest purity and batch consistency. And every batch is thoroughly tested for impurities at every step, from raw material to packaging. Our dedication to exhaustive third-party and in-house testing enable us to make the following guarantees:

    • Mercury—less than 5 ppb (below detection limit)
    • Lead—less than 20 ppb (below detection limit)
    • Dioxins and Furans TEQ—less than 0.5 ppt
    • PCBs TEQ—less than 1 ppt
    • Also tested for yeasts, molds, and bacteria

    Is the Metagenics marine oil pharmaceutical grade, ultra pure, and/or ultra refined?
    There is no unified definition for these terms. To date, the only internationally recognized, minimal quality standards are based on the EU CRN monograph. "Pharmaceutical grade" is a marketing term often used to imply a higher standard of purity. While there are pharmaceutical grades established for some chemicals, there is no such grade for m

    My husband has taken them for 4 months now and really likes that there is no after taste from them . And as it has only ben the 4 months , has not seen major changes yet , but don't want to be without them. We are the generation (1930-40) that HAD to take a large spoonful of Cod -Liver Oil every day , and tasted it the rest of the day ! But we were Healthy Children !

    • Excellent Product, Repeat User

      Posted by Busy Mom on August 5, 2011
      I have used this product for over three years and feel I can swear by the quality. I have tried other EPA DHA products in comparison, and I feel noticeable health differences when using Metagenics. I am a big fan of the lemon oil flavoring, and have had very few incidents of aftertaste. When I did, It was very minor lemony aftertaste. Will continue to buy this product.

    • My wife & I, above 60

      According to our Doctor it is the best fish oil on the market. Along with Red Yeast Rice it seems to be keeping our bad colestrol down and our good colestrol up. Has no after taste. We like that!!!

      Posted by Mike on July 7, 2011
      My wife kept insisting that I need to take my fish oils in order to stay healthy. I never believed her until I started to take this product. I swear by them daily. The great thing about them- no after taste.

    • Great product. Doctor recommended. Doesn't smell.

      Posted by Steve on August 1, 2011
      My internist recommended this specific brand for its concentration of EPA and DHA. It's better than the other brands I've tried. The hint of lemon helps the fishy taste and smell.

    • EPA-DHA 720

      Posted by Guest on April 27, 2010
      I believe that it is very important to have a good quality fish oil. After researching and calling many companies to determine the method of their processing and the purity of their product I have found Metagenics to have one of the better quality fish oils. My husband and I use Metagenics fish oil every day. We have never experienced a fishy after taste. But a little tip if you do.....store them in the freezer and take them before meals.

    • No fish taste

      Posted by Bobbi on June 19, 2011
      Best fish oil I've used; there is no fishy or aftertaste and although they are big, they slide right down. My Doctor has me on 4 per day for inflammation.

      These softgels don't have any odor or perceptible fishy taste. Yet they are high in EPA/DHA. They are excellent - Ive been using them for about two years now.
