It is crucial! There are many omega-3 products on the market, and all of them are not the same, although it might seem that way. In 2011 the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety released two reports about omega-3 products. One of them concluded that it was beneficial to the health to ingest omega-3 fatty acids. The other concluded that there might be some concerns connected to rancid products among the omega-3 products. It is therefore important for the consumer to choose high-quality omega-3 products from known and serious manufacturers who have this under control.
There are many studies that show it is important to get enough omega-3. Some researches point out that the results of the studies are closely connected to which omega-3 products are used in the research. This indicates that it is important to choose the right omega-3 product to get the health benefits of taking omega-3.
