The 4 Best Fish Oil Products For Men

By: Dr. Anthony Balduzzi, NMD - Men's Health Doctor & Founder, The Fit Father Project & Fit Mother Project,

Fish oil is AWESOME for your health. Regularly taking fish oil will help your body burn fat, decrease inflammation (and pain), lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol, raise your “good” HDL cholesterol, enhance your brain function, boost insulin sensitivity, and the list goes on…

BUT with hundreds of different products on the market, it's a daunting task to actually decide which fish oil to buy.

best fish oilNow, before the advent of omega-3 fish oil supplements, eating cold water fatty fish (and certain nuts/seeds) was the only ways to get these essential omega-3 fats into our diets.

This strategy was very effective for our ancestors. For us, however, unprecedented levels of industrialization over the past 100 years has created a number of new food safety problems that we must take into account when looking at fish oil products.

The big problem is that the lion share of today's fish supply is contaminated with dangerous toxins such as PCBs, arsenic, dioxins, and mercury – all of which have been shown to promote wide range of diseases ranging from cancer, blindness, diabetes, to birth defects in your kids/grandkids.
For this very reason, deciding WHICH fish oil to buy is worth your time reading about here on The Fit Father Project. The quality of the fish oil product you consume makes all the difference between yielding fish oil's amazing benefits and actually creating more health problems for yourself.

Thankfully, there are a few select fish oil manufacturers that produce the highest quality supplements for conscious consumers like you and me striving for greater health and vitality. I'll get to those products in one second. First, I want to introduce you to the organization that independently tests major fish oil brands for quality.

Meet The IFOS: Fish Oil's Tough Critic

Bar none, the easiest way to evaluate which fish oil to buy is to choose a brand that has been tested by the International Fish Oil Standards program (IFOS).

The IFOS uses a 5-factor approach to evaluate the safety, purity, and efficacy of fish oil products.

The strictness of the 5-factor IFOS standard is great news for smart consumers like you and I looking to purchase the safest, most effective fish oil supplements. These standards are bad news for 90% of manufacturers with inferior quality products because quite frankly, most supplements don’t make the cut.

The products that do “make the IFOS” cur are awarded the coveted IFOS 5-star safety rating. Because the IFOS makes their consumer reports public, you can find all of the IFOS 5-star rated products at their website, by clicking this link.
