RxOmega-3 Factors™ liquid oil has a pleasant orange flavor and is also available in softgel capsules.
Where is it found?
Oil from fish contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); both are omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA are found in mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, sablefish (black cod), anchovies, albacore tuna, and wild game. Cod liver oil contains large amounts of EPA and DHA. Fish oil supplements typically contain 18% EPA and 12% DHA, though more purified (i.e., higher in EPA and DHA) fish oil supplements are sometimes available. In addition, DHA is available in a supplement that does not contain significant amounts of EPA.
About Natural Factors
Natural Factors Farms
Today, Natural Factors is one of the largest manufacturerers of nutritional products in North America. But their origins reach back to the 1950s, and right from day one, they've always been fully committed to making prodcuts right. They are not a public company with shareholders to impress. Instead, Natural Factors only cares about impressing the customer.
A Very Special Place
In the alluvial valley between Otter Lake and Swan Lake, just south of the city of Armstrong, BC, Canada lies a very special tract of land, Natural Factors Farms. This exquisite certified-organic farmland gives Natural Factors complete control over securing the best quality raw materials possible. Literally, control from seed selection to finished product. Few, if any, companies in the world can demonstrate such a degree of control over their operations.
Beyond the Farms
Natural Factors new US head office, which is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified, is located in Monroe, WA. Their Canadian head office is located in Coquitlam, BC, Canada. They have close to 700,000 square feet of space across nine locations in North America, housing offices, manufacturing and production facilities, laboratories, distribution centers, and extensive warehouses. Natural Factors capabilities include softgel and two-piece hard-shell encapsulation, tableting, liquid and powder extraction, multi-ingredient aqueous granulations, and a liquid fill line.
Big Enough To Do It Right
Natural Factors believes they need to be "big enough to do it right." This means bringing as many processes in-house as possible. Natural Factors are one of the only nutritional companies to have their own organic farms, their own extraction, encapsulation, and production facilities, their own labs and research facilites, and a vast network of academic, scientific, and retail partners. They are also one of the few branded manufacturers of nutraceuticals in North America to have our own softgel encapsulation facility.
Natural Factors Commitment to Science
One of the things that set Natural Factors apart from others in the industry is the breadth of knowledge represented by the scientic experts that work for them. Drawn from around the world and chosen for their unique training and background, their scientists and quality control speacilists are recognized experts in their fields.
