  • About Herring Gold

    The rich herring fishery of Norway is one of the main sources of food for the Norwegian people. Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Herring Gold contains ROMEGA 30™ herring roe extract, sustainably sourced from Norwegian spring-spawning herring. It is rich in the important omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, as well as choline and astaxanthin. It is also a significant source of DHA and EPA in phospholipid form, which is easier for the body to absorb.

    Omega-3s are essential for heart and brain health. DHA and EPA in phospholipid form are particularly important for cognitive function. Choline also plays a role in cognitive performance, as well as liver health. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid, and one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants.

    Herring Gold contains more omega-3 phospholipids than krill oil, and is a sustainable alternative to krill. The Norwegian spring-spawning herring fishery has been independently certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, whose mission is to conserve the marine habitat. Herring is classified as a “species of least concern” by the International Union of Conservation of Nature.

    Herring Gold is guaranteed non-GMO and is available in 500 mg and 1000 mg formats. The softgels are small and easy to swallow, with no fishy repeat.

    • Q

      The Herring Gold label says no natural astaxanthin in fish oil. How does this compare to astaxanthin claims for wild salmon oil?

      A

      The comparison of Herring Gold to fish oil is a comparison against standard concentrates that have high EPA and DHA levels and not a comparison against fish oils that provide levels of EPA and DHA that would be found in free-swimming fish such as wild salmon.

    • Q

      Why is Whole Earth & Sea in glass bottles?

      A
