Whether you’re a star athlete or a desk jockey, there’s no question that fish oil can be a beneficial addition to your daily routine. But not all fish oils are created equal, and finding a reputable one can be tricky. At Steward Supplements, we value complete transparency when it comes to ingredients and processing. We extract our oils at low temperatures to preserve nutrients and fatty acids, then refine them one extra time—so you can feel confident knowing you’re benefiting from pure cod liver and salmon oils that are wild-caught in the cold, clear waters of Alaska.
Wondering which fish oil is best for your needs? While both of our oils are MSC-certified and contain less saturated fat than other fish oils—like those sourced from anchovies, sardines, and other oily fish—there are a few main differences in their benefits that may help you determine which is the right one for you.
For the health enthusiast
If you’re not an athlete, you’re probably looking for general ways to stay healthy: keeping painful joints under control, improving cardiovascular health, relieving menstrual cramps, and improving the appearance of hair, skin, and nails. For the average person, our cod liver oil—available in lemon-flavored liquid and softgel varieties—is the best choice for those who want to improve overall health and lifespan. It offers a concentrated omega-3 fatty acid formula, which can be key to preventing inflammation in joints and organs. And because it’s sourced directly from the cod fish’s liver, this oil is rich in vitamins A and D, which offer superb immunity protection—only breastmilk can compete with this level of nutrient density.
For the high-performance athlete
If you’re a triathlon competitor, marathon runner, or bodybuilder, you’re likely already taking a variety of other supplements, many of which may include nutrients that overlap those in our cod liver oil. For this reason, we recommend our salmon oil for all serious athletes. It offers lower levels of vitamins A and D (often found in multivitamins and other supplements), so there’s no risk of toxicity. But it’s the antioxidant-rich formula that makes our salmon oil a truly smart choice for athletes. High levels of astaxanthin, one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world, offer properties that may be linked to increased endurance, heart health, and reduced joint inflammation, all of which improve overall athletic performance to keep your training on track.No matter which product you choose, you can rest easy knowing you're benefiting from a pure omega-3-rich oil that helps sustain health in your day-to-day life.
