Here’s what you need to know about Fish Oil quality standards in popular Fish Oil supplements. The health claims regarding supplements can be confusing. Irresponsible advertising makes it more difficult to determine which products will help you reach your health goals, and which ones aren’t worth your money.
You may have seen recent news reports about a class action lawsuit against CVS over false marketing of its Omega-3 Krill Oil. The CVS case raises questions about how consumers can be sure that they are receiving the quality products they believe they are purchasing in an effort to improve their health.
The CVS case argues that customers paid a premium price for the product based on claims that it was 100% Pure Omega-3 Krill Oil. A study by the United States Department of Agriculture, however, found that the product contained only 60 percent of the krill oil represented on the package.
