CARDIOM3 is a pharmaceutical-grade oil manufactured exclusively from wild-caught fish (anchovies, sardines and tuna).

Each stage of the manufacturing of CARDIOM3 is performed according to food-processing or pharmaceutical "GMPs" (Good Manufacturing Practices) to guarantee a pharmaceutical-grade oil which complies with the ISO 9001 standards. In addition to the rigorous inspections performed during the production stages, isodisnatura commissions an independent laboratory, Oleotest NV, to undertake periodic analyses of stocks of our products to control their quality throughout their shelf life.

Shelf life

CARDIOM3 contains a protective dose of tocopherol (vitamin E) which allows the omega-3s to be kept in a biologically active state and reduces the risk of peroxidation. The presence of this antioxidant means that CARDIOM3 has a shelf life of 3 years if stored at a temperature between 15 and 25°C in a dry place.

On the other hand, exposure of the product to light and high temperatures reduces its shelf life and may damage the soft capsules. In addition to the rigorous inspections performed during the production stages, isodisnatura commissions an independent laboratory, OLEOTEST NV, to undertake periodic analyses of stocks of the CARDIOM3 product to control their quality throughout their shelf life (3 years).

An independent organization ( which evaluates the quality of nutritional supplements determined that more than one brand in four did not contain the quantity of ingredients indicated on the label. The concentrations provided by CARDIOM3 are ISO 9001-certified and production is performed according to "GMP" standards.
Certain products are contaminated with the pollutants which occur with unfortunate frequency in nature, such as mercury, PCBs or dioxin. The purification process which gives CARDIOM3 its exceptional concentration also permits the elimination of all the impurities generally contained in farmed or wild-caught fish. The levels of heavy metals (iron, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, copper) and other pollutants (DDE, DDT, HCB) are certified as being below the detection threshold. In particular, the levels of PCBs detected in batches of CARDIOM3 are less than or equal to 90 µg/kg, i.e. more than twenty times lower than the levels established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (2000 µg/kg), and more than ten times lower than the WHO standard (1000 µg/kg). Likewise, the level of dioxin is less than 2 picogTEQ/g, which is in line with European legislation.
This guarantee of purity is essential for a natural product derived from the sea, in view of the frequency of contamination of marine products.
