Omega-3s and vitamin D support the special physical and mental demands placed on serious amateur and professional athletes.
For more on that, see “Wild Salmon Excels for Sports and Fitness” and “Omega-3s for Exercise: Trials Find Muscle and Breathing Benefits.”
And we want the competitive athletes among our customers to benefit from both nutrients, worry-free.
That's why secured the prized Certified for Sport™ seal of approval from NSF International for our NEW Certified for Sport™ Sockeye Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3.
This sought-after sign assures athletes that our Certified for Sport™ Sockeye Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3 is free of all substances banned by sports federations worldwide.
Like all Vital Choice Salmon Oil supplements, the NSF mark on our new Certified for Sport™ supplement means that it's free of hazardous levels of contaminants, including mercury and PCBs.
(All Vital Choice omega-3 supplements feature the same pure, natural, unrefined sockeye salmon oil, and the purity and potency of each one is certified NSF.)
But only our new Salmon Oil + Vitamin D3 supplement is also Certified for Sport™ by NSF.
Why we chose NSF
Leading sports leagues and associations like these have authorized their athletes to use NSF Certified for Sport™ supplements:

- Canadian Center for Ethics in Sports
