CardiO-3® is a premium Omega-3 supplement utilizing supercritical technology that delivers 900 mg of Omega-3 nutrition in a convenient, once daily serving. CardiO-3® offers a clean, orange flavor with no fishy aftertaste, supports cardiovascular health and helps maintain cholesterol and triglyceride levels already in the normal range.*
Clinical Science- Minami is committed to the advancement of scientific support for Omega-3 nutrition and has participated in 11 human clinical studies. Advanced Omega-3 research suggests a high concentration of EPA, along with DHA, can support cardiovascular health.*

What makes Minami Nutrition Omega-3 so different from other brands?
By now you are no doubt well aware of the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids for your general health. The health food industry has been overloaded with supplement choices in recent years.
Numerous manufacturers have jumped on the bandwagon with evocative narratives and sophisticated marketing schemes in the hope of getting a share of the hype surrounding Omega-3. However, it is important to separate the wheat from the chaff as most of the supplements sold under the ‘umbrella’ of Omega-3 are better left alone.
Research has demonstrated that the majority of the population is well aware that Omega-3 is vital to maintain good health, but few people know how little Omega-3 they consume via their diet, how to differentiate between the various products and what to look for when buying an Omega-3 supplement.
What should you look out for?
This refers to the exact quantity of the most important Omega-3 fatty acids in a capsule, i.e. the DHA and EPA concentration. A 1000 mg fish oil capsule may only contain half that amount, or even less, in DHA and EPA, the rest consisting of, for example, vegetable oil or Omega-6. It is not because a capsule weighs 1000 mg that it actually contains 1000 mg of pure Omega-3 fatty acids. Always check the amount of DHA and EPA per capsule.
Depends on the EPA and DHA concentration. Higher concentrations of EPA or DHA require fewer capsules per day to meet your daily requirement. With some brands you require four, six, even up to ten capsules per day in order to reach the necessary daily dose of EPA or DHA*.
Don't be fooled by the cost of a pack of 30, 60 or 90 capsules. Calculate how many capsules you need to take each day and how long a package will last. Cheaper products soon become expensive if you require four or more capsules per day.
Check the ingredients in each capsule. Many manufacturers use sunflower or groundnut oil, or even saturated fats or other fillers that might well be unhealthy, in addition to (small) amounts of EPA and DHA.
Impact on the environment
Choose fish or algae oil derived from non-endangered species and a product that has been purified in an environmentally friendly way. It is advisable to opt for smaller fish species (mackerel, anchovies). Tuna is an endangered species, which also contains considerable amounts of mercury and PCBs. The optimum guarantee is an EMAS certificate (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme, approved by the European Parliament).
