Why is IFOS 5 Star Important?
When choosing fish oil there are specific attributes to be mindful of: choose a natural triglyceride fish oil over a processed ethyl ester form, note the concentration of EPA:DHA, compare sustainability of fishing practices, type of fish harvested…etc.
One key objective marker of the quality and purity of your oil is the IFOS 5 Star Rating. IFOS stands for International Fish Oil Standards and is considered the penultimate third party indicator of quality in the industry.
The 5 Stars represent the following:
1 Star for passing all CRN/WHO* testing categories
1 Star for greater than 60% Omega-3 concentration
1 Star for Oxidation levels less than 75% of CRN Standard
1 Star for PCB levels less than 50% of CRN Standard
1 Star for Dioxin levels less than 50% of WHO Standard
Of course, Bonfire Premium Fish Oil satisfies all of the above criteria and is proud to display its IFOS 5 Star Rating. To learn more about our products or to order yours today go to http://bonfirehealth.com/store/
