Maximum-Strength Formulation Offers Highest Concentration and Purity

MIAMI, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Ferrer introduces new Quadruple-Strength category of Omega-3 supplements to U.S. market

European pharmaceutical company Ferrer today announced the U.S. launch of Omegafort[scc] Quadruple Strength Fish Oil, Omega-3 nutritional supplements which, thanks to Super Critical Concentration technology, provide a high concentration of Omega-3.

Omegafort[scc] arrives with a formula that is unique, due to the quality of its raw materials and the use of Super Critical Concentration (SCC). Thanks to this technology, each Omegafort[scc] Quadruple Strength Fish Oil capsuleor daily serving contains 1200mg of Omega-3, the highest concentration available without a medical prescription in the U.S.

Omegafort[scc] Quadruple Strength Fish Oil is produced and distributed in the U.S., under license of Ferrer, by Nutriforce Nutrition. Omegafort[scc] Quadruple Strength Fish Oil is sold in the United States at Walgreens as well as on Nutriforce Nutrition is also in negotiations with other major U.S. retailers.

Next-Generation Technology

Omegafort[scc] comes from a raw material of the highest quality: the anchovy fished off the Pacific Ocean. The anchovy is a species of blue fish whose small size and short lifespan mean that it accumulates barely any of the environmental contaminants sometimes associated with fish oils coming from larger fish such as tuna. The SCC technology provided by the specialist in innovative technological processes, Solutex, is used to concentrate the anchovy oil, which has a natural Omega-3 content of 30% of the total weight of the oil up to a level of 85% EPA and DHA, surpassing other products which only reach a total EPA and DHA concentration of 55% to 60%.

Quadruple Strength: Prevention in a Single Capsule

The positive benefits associated with EPA are related to its anti-inflammatory properties, while the benefits of DHA are linked to its potential effects in neurodegenerative processes and neuronal development. To achieve a real preventative effect, a daily intake of a minimum of 500 mg of EPA and DHA is recommended by most governmental agencies. However, top U.S. and international experts recommend that this intake exceed 1 g a day.

Most of the products sold in the U.S. are what are known as "Standard Fish Oils", which on average have 300 mg of Omega-3 per capsule (18% EPA, 12% DHA). The highest-growing category is the "concentrates", known as  double-  and triple-strength fish oils, that provide respectively 600 mg and 900 mg of Omega-3 per capsule. Omegafort[scc] enters the U.S. market with a unique and ground-breaking concept, offering 1200 mg of Omega-3 per serving of pure pharmaceutical-grade highly-concentrated fish oil.


  • QUADRUPLE STRENGTH OMEGAFORT[SCC] SUPERCRITICAL FISH OIL 1200mg provides 1200 mg of Omega-3 long-chain fatty acids in just one capsule.
  • QUADRUPLE STRENGTH OMEGAFORT[SCC] SUPERCRITICAL FISH OIL 400mg CONCENTRATED provides 400 mg of Omega-3 long-chain fatty acids in just one capsule and 1200 mg in its recommended serving size of 3 capsules. For those who prefer smaller capsules.
