Equazen: Responsible, Sustainable, Traceable
Equazen is made from high quality ingredients using only certified sustainable methods
Here at EQUAZEN we have forged long-lasting relationships with our carefully selected suppliers to ensure that only the best ingredients are used, in an environmentally responsible way. Our certified UK and overseas suppliers only fish from sustainable stocks, harvesting for only a few weeks of the year just when the levels of fish oils are at their highest.
As our suppliers also process the fish oils, you can have confidence that every member of our EQUAZEN family is committed to the highest possible quality, hygiene and legal standards.
- Quality at every stage: Throughout our sourcing, manufacturing and shipping processes, we operate to very strict procedures and to European Commission(EC) and World Health Organisation (WHO) regulations to ensure food safety. This involves testing for potential pollutants such as dioxins, PCBs and heavy metals. We also independently test our products to ensure oil and vitamin purity
- Sourcing the best ingredients: Our docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is derived from DHA-rich fish like tuna, while our eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) comes from anchovies, sardines and pilchards. Our omega-6 uses virgin, unrefined evening primrose oil as a source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). The oil is extracted in accordance with Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) and is certified as non- genetically modified (non-GM). Similarly, our glycerol is manufactured from non-GM certified palm, palm kernel or rapeseed oil
- Ethical fishing: From UK and Norway to the west coast of South America, we source the best fish under strict and enforced quota conditions to ensure high ethical standards and sustainability of the fishery. EQUAZEN suppliers also comply with the Criteria for Products from Sustainable Fisheries and have been accredited a “Friend of the Sea”
- Harnessing scientific innovation: Our oils are concentrated using molecular distillation techniques to retain a pure clear oil before being reassembled into triglycerides, the most bio-available form, for maximum absorption and effectiveness of EQUAZEN.
