Nutrasea+D Fish Oil FAQ
Can I give NutraSea Kids to children under one year of age?
Please consult with a health care provider before giving NutraSea Kids to children under one year of age.
Can I cook with NutraSea?
Heating the oil to cooking temperatures could result in a degradation of quality; instead, feel free to add NutraSea to foods after they have been cooked. In addition, NutraSea is great in salad dressings, pastas, yogurt, or mixed in a fruit smoothie.
NutraSea is a fat - will I gain weight from taking it?
No, the consumption of omega-3 fish oils should not cause an increase in body fat if you are taking the recommended dose. In fact, research reveals that omega-3 fatty acids actually promote fat loss [1-6].

How does flax oil compare to NutraSea?
There are two dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids: plants (which contain alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA) and marine-based sources like fish and squid (which contain EPA and DHA). One of the top food sources of ALA is flax (also chia and hemp), which is about 55% ALA by weight. Generally, North Americans consume plenty of ALA through our diets, but the physiologically-essential omega-3s, EPA and DHA, are consumed at much lower levels. While the body can partially convert ALA to EPA and DHA, humans generally have poor abilities to perform this conversion. Because fish oil provides the active forms of omega-3, EPA and DHA, its health benefits are greater and supported by a large body of research.
What ingredients other than fish oil are in NutraSea and why?
Ascenta uses different natural antioxidants in our products to prevent oxidation. Green tea extract is used in some of our products and provides excellent protection against oxidation, allowing our products to remain fresh for the duration of their shelf life. Phospholipids are also used in some of our products and are also very effective at preserving the quality of our products. Our studies have shown that both green tea extract and phospholipids are more effective than the commonly used antioxidants rosemary and ascorbyl palmitate.
What source of vitamin D3 is used in the NutraSea +D?
The source of vitamin D3 in NutraSea+D is lanolin from sheep’s wool.
Does NutraSea come from wild or farmed fish?
The sardines, anchovies, and mackerel in NutraSea come from wild, cold waters off the coast of Peru. The squid in NutraSea DHA is distributed in the Pacific ocean, more specifically in the South American and Asian parts of the world.
Is there any caffeine in the green tea extract used in NutraSea products?
The green tea extract in our products is used as an oil stabilizer to prevent oxidation, and not as a dietary source of green tea catechins. Laboratory test results confirm that the green tea extract used in our products is not a significant source of caffeine.
