Study reveals that some fish-oil supplements may not be all that they advertise

A new study has found that fish-oil supplements may not be providing consumers with what they are paying for, according to a New York Times health blog.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - A new study has found that fish-oil supplements may not be providing consumers with what they are paying for, according to a New York Times health blog.

The Times cites a study by LabDoor, which analyzed 30 top-selling fish oil supplements for levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, a group of compounds with anti-inflammatory effects.

According to the study, six of those products contained levels of Omega-3 fatty acids that were, on average, 30 percent less than stated on their labels.

Among the companies that tested well were Nordic Naturals, Axis Labs, and Nature Made.

The full list is available on the LabDoor.com website.
