RAW MATERIALS AND ITS MAXIMUM PURIFICATION

Standardizing the consumption og omega-3 Fatty Acids from natural sources is not an easy task but it is vital that final products, which are being consumed by those who need it, comply with the quality and purity requirementsto fulfill the expected benefits.
Naturmega is the only company in south America, and one of the few worldwide, that has achieved to produce high concentrations of omega-3 EPA and DHA in the free fatty acid form (FFA) as a prescribed pharmaceutical formula.
Out of the three chemical forms in which omega-3 is manufactured, free fatty acids (FFA) have an absorption rate of almost 100% in the human body.
To achieve a product that meets and exceeds international standardsn in terms of oxidation levels and the presence of heavy metals and pesticides, naturmega has chosen anchoveta (Engraulis Ringens) as its main raw material. This fish is sustainably harvested from Peruvian coastal waters, recognized worldwide for its purity due to the Humboldt marine current, which generates the greatest natural ecosystem in this privileged area.
