Many of you are receiving the significant benefits of taking our special Omega 3 fish oil product known as FortifEye. A few of our patients who regularly take this product have come in with concerns about an abnormally high fishy odour in some of the bottles purchased. We checked with our supplier and have some information to share with you.
The manufacturers of the fish oil in Norway had been experimenting with even higher doses of DHA/EPA (the “working ingredient” in FortifEye) which changed the concentration of the lemon flavoring. In combination with the pressures used in capsuling and bottling the product, some bottles ended up with a higher than normal fishy odour. These bottles were tested for quality at the distribution centre in Florida and passed inspection despite the increased odour.

As you know, our number one concern is your satisfaction so if you are not sure, please bring your bottles back in for credit and we’ll replace them for you.
