3rd Party Testing
When you look into fish oils it is important to understand that alot of the claims made by the company selling you the oils have not been tested. 3rd party testing is when a seperate entity not associated with the fish oil manufacturer tests the fish oil and gives an accurate lab analysis of the contents in the bottle.
