With Nature’s Way’s® reputation for trust and half century of experience, you can rest assured that our products have gone through the same level of scrutiny as all of our products. Every lot is sent to an independent laboratory for third-party verification where the product is benchmarked against the industry’s most stringent guidelines for quality and purity. Third-party test results for your product lot are presented below.

Label Claim Test


EPA + DHA Label Claim: 1250 mg

EPA + DHA Test Result*: 1377 mg

Consumers, investing in their health by taking nutritional supplements, want to know that the supplements they are taking are effective and contain the beneficial ingredients as stated on the packaging.

* Results for fatty acid analysis are subject to +/- 5% variation due to differences between testing methods, labs and instruments.

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 Label Claim: 1000 IU

Vitamin D3 Test Result*: 1000 IU

Vitamin D3 is an important pro-hormone responsible for many regulatory functions in the body including bone mineralization,immune function and gene expression. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the best form of vitamin D that is easily absorbed by the body.*Based on input calculation.

Oxidation Test


GOED Maximum allowable limit: 5 meq/kg

Test result: 0.3 meq/kg

The first compounds formed by the oxidation of an oil are hydroperoxides. These peroxides may catalyze greater oxidation, or decompose and react further - giving rise to a rancid taste.



GOED Maximum allowable limit: 20 AnisidineDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Test result: 9.5 AnisidineDataTestUnitOfMeasure

The p-anisidine values are used to measure secondary oxidation or the level of aldehyde production during the processing of oils. Anisidine values reflect how an oil has been handled and stored, where peroxide value measures current oxidation.



GOED Maximum allowable limit: 26 TotoxDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Test result: 10 TotoxDataTestUnitOfMeasure

Fish and plant oils begin to oxidize as soon as they are exposed to oxygen, metals, light, and heat. At late stages, oxidation will make the oils smell rancid. In early stages, regardless of the lack of aroma, high levels of oxidation are still harmful.


Environmental Contaminants

Dioxins and Furans*

GOED Maximum allowable limit: 1 pg WHO-TEQ/g

Test result: 0.347 pg WHO-TEQ/g

Dioxin and furans are environmental contaminants that are formed as a result of the combustion process, such as burning fossil fuels. Dioxin is the most toxic man-made chemical, and furans are about a tenth as toxic. These contaminants are human carcinogens and also cause non-cancerous health effects.



GOED Maximum allowable limit: 0.09 mg/kg

Test result: 0.09 mg/kg

PCBs are a group of manufactured organic chemicals, used widely until the late 1970s. PCBs build up in the environment and cause harmful health effects in humans and animals. PCBs can be highly concentrated in fish found in waters with even low levels of these carcinogens.


Dioxin-like PCBs*

GOED Maximum allowable limit: 3 pg WHO-TEQ/g

Test result: 0.11 pg WHO-TEQ/g

Dioxin-like PCBs are related chemicals derived from the PCB family. Resistant to biological degradation and persistent in the environment, these chemicals are widely used in industrial, commercial and domestic applications. Little is known about the impact on human and animal health, but they are assumed to have the same effects as PCBs.




GOED Maximum allowable limit: < 0.1 mg/kg

Test result: < 0 mg/kg

Lead is a heavy metal used extensively in mining, battery production, ceramics and stained glass. Lead is known to cause neurological problems, cognitive impairments, changes in blood chemistry, cellular weakness, and disrupts enzymatic functions in humans.



GOED Maximum allowable limit: < 0.1 mg/kg

Test result: < 0 mg/kg

Cadmium is used for industrial processing, batteries, and other synthetics. It is also produced through the burning of fossil fuels and municipal waste. Cadmium is a known carcinogen, linked to many forms of cancer in humans. Cadmium is also known to affect the human renal, cardiopulmonary, and skeletal systems.



GOED Maximum allowable limit: < 0.1 mg/kg

Test result: < 0 mg/kg

Mercury has been used to make products ranging from skin creams to dental fillings to electricity (coal burning releases mercury). Mercury can cause permanent damage to the brain and central nervous system, and affect other organs in humans.


Inorganic Arsenic

GOED Maximum allowable limit: < 0.1 mg/kg

Test result: < 0 mg/kg

Arsenic is highly mobile in the environment and not naturally removed or detoxified. Arsenic is used for smelting and mining and in pesticides. Considered carcinogenic, it impacts the nervous and gastrointestinal systems and the skin in humans.
