Fish Oil - Members
More than 80% of all companies involved in New Zealand’s natural products industry belong to Natural Health Products NZ, including all major brands and manufacturers. Our membership comprises businesses that manufacture and supply natural health remedies, dietary supplements, health support products, and related ingredients and services.
The reported health benefits of fish oil include its support for heart health, cholesterol, healthy mood and brain functions, stress and worry, weakened immune system, free radical damage, blood sugar balance, eye health and ulcers. It also helps aid weight management, healthy pregnancy, fertility and skin care (particularly for dry skin conditions and acne).
Most of the health benefits of fish oil can be attributed to the presence of omega 3 essential fatty acids like Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Other useful essential fatty acids in fish oil include Alpha-linolenic acid or ALA and Gamma-linolenic acid or GLA.
For the first time Fish Oil purchasers have clarity as to the type of fish that their fish oil comes from and where it has been caught. This is New Zealand’s USP for Omega 3 and is a system developed by SeaDragon, based in the top of the South Island. The product is refined in New Zealand in a plant operating under stringent government-audited processes. The plant processes NZ Hoki and SW Pacific Tuna locally caught, along with sustainably farmed NZ Salmon.
