IT’S-ON-US MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.

If you’re one of the rare people that eat several servings of nonpredatory fatty fish per week, or if your diet contains large amounts of alpha-linolenic acid, then you may not benefit from taking a fish oil supplement.

If you’re like most people, though, and you don’t eat much seafood or high amounts of vegetable or nut oils, then you can rest assured your plasma EPA and DHA levels are lower than you want them to be.

And that means you most definitely can benefit from supplementing with fish oil in many ways, including...

  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Faster fat loss
  • Less muscle soreness
  • Better mood, memory, and cognitive performance
  • Better insulin sensitivity
  • And more

And that’s why we created TRITON.

If you want to optimize your mental and physical health and performance and reduce the risk of disease and dysfunction...then you want to try TRITON today.

When it comes to maintaining optimal health, preserving physical and mental performance, and warding off disease and dysfunction, some nutrients are far more important than others.

For example, it was once believed that vitamin D was important only for bone health.

Well, thanks to the hard work of many scientists, including Dr. Michael Holick, we now know that nearly every type of tissue and cell in the body has vitamin D receptors and that it plays a vital role in a large number of physiological processes. [1]

Unfortunately, research shows that a large percentage of people are deficient in vitamin D, which is associated with a slew of health risks. [2]

Magnesium is another example of a vital nutrient.

It’s arguably the most important mineral for your body because it plays a vital role in hundreds of chemical reactions relating to everything from your metabolism to your sleep cycles and blood pressure. [3]

And like vitamin D, research shows that many people are also deficient in magnesium, which compromises many bodily functions. [4]

Two other nutrients crucial to our all-around health and well-being are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Together these are known as “omega-3 fatty acids,” which refers to the structure of the molecules.

Our bodies can’t produce EPA and DHA, which is why they’re also known as “essential fatty acids.”

That is, if you were to completely remove these molecules from your diet, you would eventually die.

EPA and DHA can be obtained by eating various foods including fatty fish, grass-fed meat, range-fed eggs, and vegetable oils, and by taking a supplement like fish oil.

Research shows that maintaining sufficient plasma (blood) EPA and DHA levels...

  • Reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes [5][6][7]
  • Decreases systemic inflammation [8]
  • Improves mood, memory, and cognitive performance [9][10][11]
  • Helps prevent weight gain [12]
  • Accelerates muscle growth [13]
  • Speeds up fat loss [14]

Sadly, studies show that the average person’s diet provides just 1/10th of the EPA and DHA needed to preserve health and prevent disease. [15]

Specifically, research shows that a combined intake of 500 milligrams to 1.8 grams of EPA and DHA per day is adequate and that additional health benefits can be seen up to a combined intake of 6 grams per day. [16]

Most people get just 100 to 200 milligrams of EPA and DHA per day, though. [17]

The reason the average Westerner gets so little EPA and DHA is his primary source of these life-preserving molecules is a type of dietary fat called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

ALA, which is abundant in certain foods like vegetable seeds and oils, can be converted into EPA, which can then be converted into DHA.

The problem is these conversion processes are extremely inefficient, meaning that you would have to eat large amounts of ALA to supply your body with enough EPA and DHA. [18][19][20]

That’s why research shows that many vegetarian and vegans have low plasma levels of EPA and DHA. [21][22][23]

All this isn’t exactly news to many people, which is why fish oil supplements are more popular than ever.

What most people don’t know, though, is not all fish oil supplements are made equally. Some are far better than others...

Which Type of Fish Oil is Best?

Fish oil supplements on the market today contain one of three forms of oil:

  1. Triglyceride

    A triglyceride is a molecule comprised of three fatty acids and one molecule of glycerol, which is a colorless, odorless substance found in fats and oils.

    This is the natural (unprocessed) form of fish oil.

  2. Ethyl ester

    The ethyl ester form of fish oil is created by processing natural triglycerides to remove the glycerol molecules and replace them with ethanol (alcohol).

    This is done to remove impurities and concentrate the fish oil, thereby raising the levels of EPA and DHA per gram of oil.

    While this may sound positive (and is often touted as a selling point), and plenty of studies have proven the benefits of supplementation with fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs), it’s not without drawbacks.

  3. Reesterified triglyceride

    The reesterified triglyceride form is similar to the natural form, and it’s created by using special enzymes to convert ethyl ester oil back into triglyceride oil.

    This adds expense but improves the quality and bioavailability of the oil.

Out of these three forms, you would probably assume that a natural triglyceride supplement is your best choice.

Well, ironically, natural triglyceride oils can also have much higher levels of contaminants than ethyl ester and reesterified triglyceride oils (due to the low level of processing).

Furthermore, natural triglyceride oils are often low in EPA and DHA when compared to ethyl ester and reesterified triglyceride oils, which means you have to take more to see results.

For example, you’d be hard-pressed to find a high-quality triglyceride oil that provides more than 1,200 milligrams of EPA and DHA per 5 grams of oil (and fat).

This is expensive both in terms of dollars and calories.

Now, ethyl ester oils are the most popular, but that’s not because they’re the best. They’re just the cheapest to produce.

Research shows that the triglyceride and reesterified triglyceride forms fish oil are better absorbed by the body than the ethyl ester form, resulting in larger increases in plasma EPA and DHA levels. [24][25][26][27]

One of the reasons for this is the ethyl ester form is much more resistant to the enzymatic process by which the body breaks the oil down for use. [28]

Another problem with ethyl ester oil is it releases ethanol (alcohol) into the body, which must then be processed by the liver. This can cause various side effects including burping, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, strange tastes in your mouth, and skin rash. [29][30]

Yet another problem with ethyl ester fish oil is it oxidizes (goes bad) more quickly and easily at all temperatures than triglyceride fish oil. [31]

So, cheap, ethyl ester fish oil supplements are just another example of “you get what you pay for.”

(And in case you’re wondering how to tell whether a fish oil is an ethyl ester product or not, if it doesn’t specifically state the form of the oil, assume it’s ethyl ester. Companies that pay a premium for the superior, more expensive triglyceride forms call it out in their marketing because it increases saleability.)

And that leaves reesterified triglyceride oil, which is becoming the “gold standard” of fish oil supplements for several reasons:

  • It has a very high bioavailability (~124% higher than even the natural triglyceride form and a whopping 170% higher than ethyl ester oil). [32]
  • It has very high concentrations of EPA and DHA.
  • It has very low levels of toxins and pollutants.
  • It’s resistant to oxidation and thus rancidification. [33]
  • It has none of the potential side effects associated with supplementation with ethyl ester oils.

Not many companies sell reesterified triglyceride oils, though, because they’re the most expensive to produce (they cost 30 to 40% more than ethyl ester oil).

If you want to make sure you’re getting the best fish oil for your buck, though, you have to dig deeper than just the form of the oil...

What Аre You Actually Getting for Your Money?

Another important factor you have to consider when choosing a fish oil is how many milligrams of EPA and DHA are in each serving.

Lower quality supplements might have as little as 150 to 200 milligrams per pill, which means you would have to take a handful every day just to get enough omega-3s.

This isn’t just a hassle—it also means swallowing anywhere from 10 to 15 grams of fat per day that you won’t get to eat (and enjoy).

For example, here’s the label from a cheap (but popular) ethyl ester fish oil supplement:

This product costs about $11 and, as you can see, contains 100 pills of 300 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids.

Thus, you get 30 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per bottle, meaning you pay about 37 cents per gram of EPA and DHA.

TRITON, on the other hand, costs $34.95 and contains 120 pills of 600 milligrams of superior, reesterified triglyceride omega-3s, for a total of 72 grams per bottle.

That comes out to 49 cents per gram of EPA and DHA, which means TRITON gives you the highest quality fish oil you can buy for only slightly more than the lowest quality products on the market.

And when you compare TRITON to other reesterified triglyceride oils, you really see how good of a deal it is.

For example, here’s the supplement facts panel from a bestselling reesterified triglyceride oil product that costs $50 per bottle:

As you can see, it’s a good product.

When you do the math, though, you also see that it’s very expensive.

Each bottle contains 120 gels, and each gel contains 640 milligrams of EPA and DHA. Thus, about 77 grams of omega-3s per bottle…

...for $50, or 65 cents per gram of omega-3s (33% more than TRITON).

Yikes.

Well, the reason we’re able to offer you the same type of top-tier product for significantly less is simple:

We have cut out the middle men involved in retail sales (that each need their cut) and sell direct to you, the consumer.

Thus, we’re able to offer you more for less.

Now, you’ve probably heard that fish oil supplements can be harmful to your health due to contamination with various toxins and chemicals.

Let’s learn more about that...

What About Contaminants in Fish Oils?

There are many man-made chemicals that tend to persist in environments and accumulate in organisms.

They are known as “persistent organic pollutants” (or POPs), and they can be found in a variety of products ranging from pesticides to solvents to pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals and more. [34]

As they are resistant to environmental degradation, these chemicals move through our soil, plants, water, and atmosphere, and are able to travel long distances. [35]

They’re captured particularly well by oils and fats, which means that after making their way into our bodies via the food we eat, medicines we take, water we drink, and air we breathe, they can become lodged in our fatty tissues. [36]

The problem with this is many of these chemicals are known to increase the risk of various types of disease and dysfunction, including metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes, cancer, and obesity, and the disruption of our reproductive, central nervous, and immune systems. [37][38][39][40]

Modern living comes with some degree of exposure to these chemicals (they can’t be avoided altogether), but it’s wise to take simple actions to minimize it, including…

  • Eating organic produce.
  • Limiting our intake of canned foods.
  • Drinking water.
  • Opting for natural cleaners instead of chemical ones.

We should also watch the fish we eat and fish products we consume.

Due to a process known as “biomagnification,” large, predatory fish contain much higher levels of contaminants (including mercury, POPs, and other chemicals) than small, nonpredatory fish. [41]

This is why the National Institute of Environmental Health recommends that we avoid fish like king mackerel, swordfish, and bigeye and ahi tuna, and limit our intake of fish like grouper, sea bass, and white tuna.

Instead, we should opt for “cleaner” choices like cod, halibut, skate, and snapper.

Studies also show that farmed fish tend to have higher levels of toxic substances than wild-caught, due mainly to the chemicals in the fishmeal used to feed and raise the fish. [42]

Thus, if you’re going to take a fish oil, you want to ensure it contains as little toxic chemicals as possible.

There are two factors to consider:

  1. The fish the oil was sourced from.

    Research shows that small, cold-water, nonpredatory fish like anchovy, sardine, and certain types of mackerel are particularly good in this regard. [43][44]

  2. How the oil was processed.

    We recall that 100% natural triglyceride oil can contain higher levels of contaminants than more processed oils like ethyl ester and reesterified triglyceride.

Ideally, your fish oil supplement would both be sourced from low-toxicity fish and processed to remove impurities using the latest and most effective methods.

The result won’t be a supplement with absolutely no contaminants whatsoever (which is impossible), but studies show that it can come in well below the levels generally considered safe. [45]

How Аre the Fish Harvested?

Several common fishing practices are extremely destructive to the natural habitats of the fish.

For example, “bottom trawling” involves dragging large nets fitted with rubber tires or rollers along the ocean floor, including coral reefs, where fish congregate.

The problem is these rollers can be very large and very damaging to the delicate coral ridges they pass over.

According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, scars up to 4 kilometers long have been found in reefs off the north-east Atlantic Ocean. [46] In heavily fished areas off southern Australia, 90% of the surfaces where coral used to grow are now bare rock.

Two other ways reefs are destroyed are cyanide and dynamite fishing, which are exactly that: the use of cyanide and dynamite to catch fish.

Cyanide stuns fish but doesn’t kill them, making them easy to collect. It also kills the organisms that grow on the coral, transforming the vibrant “rainforests of the sea” into marine deserts.

Fish killed by dynamite float to the surface where they can be simply scooped up. It also reduces underwater environments to rubble.

Overfishing is another harmful practice that bites the hand that feeds.

It makes for good paydays but can take wildlife from the sea faster than they can replenish through reproduction.

For example, Chilean seabass became so popular in the 1990s that in the early 2000s it faced commercial extinction.

This prompted hundreds of chefs to band together in opposition to serving it in their restaurants.

The point is this:

We don’t need to destroy ecosystems to get our food and supplements, and as fish oil consumers, we can make a difference by supporting well-managed, sustainable fisheries.

Sustainable policies and methods include prohibiting fishing around reefs, regulating how certain fish can be caught (rod and reel or harpoon, for instance), how large fish must be to be removed from the ocean, and how much tonnage of individual fish may be caught each year.

Introducing Triton 100% Reesterified Triglyceride Oil High Potency &
Great Value Sustainably Sourced Molecularly Distilled

We took everything you’ve just read to heart when sourcing the fish oil for TRITON.

Our criteria were strict:

  • It must be composed of 100% reesterified triglyceride oil.
  • It must include the highest possible EPA and DHA content.
  • It must be sustainably sourced from fish naturally lowest in pollutants.
  • It must be molecularly distilled to reduce contaminants to as close to zero as possible.

We vetted dozens of oil manufacturers and finally found one that checked all those boxes.

<

The oil in TRITON is reesterified triglycerides, it’s sourced from deepwater Peruvian anchovies and sardines caught by fisheries that are approved by Friend of the Sea.

It contains 2,400 milligrams of EPA and DHA per serving, and it has been processed using enhanced molecular distillation to reduce toxins and chemicals to meet the stringent European Pharmacopoeia Reference Standards (EPRS) as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED).

(And in case you’re wondering why we aren’t conforming to any US standards, it’s because governmental fish oil quality standards don’t exist in the United States. Keep that in mind when fish oil supplements claim to be “purified” or “free” of PCBs—these claims have no regulatory definitions.)

Specifically, TRITON contains…

  1. Fewer than 0.1 parts per million of heavy metals.

    Heavy metals are dense metals, including cadmium, mercury, lead, and arsenic, that can be harmful to human health.

    These metals are present throughout nature but can become concentrated as a result of human activities like manufacturing, mining, and vehicle emissions.

    The EPRS and CRN recommend that total heavy metals in fish oil supplements should be at or below a level of 0.1 parts per million.

  2. Fewer than 1.75 parts per trillion of dioxins.

    Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are byproducts of various industrial processes.

    They are POPs, and we are exposed to them in many ways, including soils, sediments, food, plants, water, and air.

    The EPRS and CRN recommend that dioxins in fish oil supplements should be at or below a level of 2 parts per trillion.

  3. Fewer than 3 parts per trillion of dioxin-like PCBs and 0.09 parts per million or less of total PCBs.

    PCBs are chemicals that were once popular in a variety of industrial uses, including weather- and fire-proofing and the insulation of electronics.

    Dioxin-like PCBs refers to 12 of these chemicals that have dioxin-like properties.

    PCBs were banned in the 1970s after being linked to cancer, but as they persist in the environment and bioaccumulate, we are regularly exposed to them.

    The CRN recommends that dioxin-like PCBs and total PCBs in fish oil supplements should be at or below a level of 3 parts per trillion and 0.09 parts per million, respectively.

  4. Fewer than 2 parts per billion of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) per softgel.

    PAHs are chemicals formed from the incomplete combustion of plant or animal matter, or carbon fuels, such as coal or petroleum.

    Automobile exhaust, industrial emissions, and smoke from burning wood, charcoal, and tobacco contain high levels of PAHs.

    They are also found at low concentrations in some special-purpose skin creams and antidandruff shampoos that contain coal tars.

    PAHs are abundant in our environment, and while our bodies are adapted to deal with a certain degree of low-level exposures, research shows that these chemicals can increase the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and poor fetal development. [47][48][49]

    The EPRS, CRN, and GOED don’t contain recommendations for PAH levels.

Furthermore, TRITON contains 48 IUs of vitamin E per serving as well, which helps preserve the oil and prevent oxidation and rancidity, and natural lemon oil, which prevents noxious “fish oil burps.”

TRITON is also gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar free, and contains no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors.

So, while everyone claims to have the best fish oil on the market, we believe we can actually back up such a claim with real purity, real science, and real numbers.

The Bottom Line

If you’re one of the rare people that eat several servings of nonpredatory fatty fish per week, or if your diet contains large amounts of alpha-linolenic acid, then you may not benefit from taking a fish oil supplement.

If you’re like most people, though, and you don’t eat much seafood or high amounts of vegetable or nut oils, then you can rest assured your plasma EPA and DHA levels are lower than you want them to be.

And that means you most definitely can benefit from supplementing with fish oil in many ways, including...

  • Decreased risk of heart disease [50]
  • Lower blood pressure [51]
  • Faster fat loss [52]
  • Less muscle soreness [53]
  • Better mood, memory, and cognitive performance [54][55][56]
  • Better insulin sensitivity [57]
  • And more

And that’s why we created TRITON.

If you want to optimize your mental and physical health and performance and reduce the risk of disease and dysfunction...then you want to try TRITON today.
