Herring Fish Oil contains high quantity of Cetoleic acid, in addition to adequate level of Omega-3s EPA/DHA, Vitamin D, Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
North Atlantic Herring is unique due to its high content of Cetoleic acid which can increase the Omega-3 index in blood by stimulating creation of EPA and DHA inside the human body.
In a trial pilot study it has been found that intake of Cetoleic acid may reduce redness of facial skin and in addition it is now being explored whether it can have positive effect on eczema symptoms. We look forward to results from further research on these very interesting positive skin health issues,.
