PRISTIN®

Epax AS – the leading fish oil supplier with more than 170 years of Norwegian marine manufacturing expertise and ongoing commitment to purity, quality and innovation.

Fish are generally contaminated with toxins, in particular mercury, PCBs, dioxins and chlordane. These are chemicals and made by the industry and pollute our ocean. Fish accumulate these toxins in their flesh and when we eat the fish we accumulate them too.

No. We are the only fish oil company today using parts-per-trillion technology in testing for toxin found in fish oil. This will definitely give you 100% guarantee of the purity and confidence. For every batch the sample will send to USM, Malaysia to test.

We will assure all ingredients will go through proper checking and testing that compiles the approved quality criteria by our suppliers. 

PRISTIN® fish oil is recognized Halal by Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM).


Even though the finished product is processing in Malaysia but the fish oil is imported from Norway and we are using the OMATECH technology to produce the finish product.

In fact, the technology to remove toxins is now refined to “parts per trillion” (PPT) up from “parts per billion” (PPB). Our competitors are still only assuring in parts per million (PPM). 

We are the only fish oil company today using parts-per-trillion technology in testing for toxin found in fish oil. This will definitely give you 100% guarantee of the purity and confidence. Yet every batch of the fish oil production, the sample will send to USM, Malaysia to run the test.

We will assure all ingredients will go through proper checking and testing that compiles the approved quality criteria by our suppliers. 

Cold water fish (Anchovy, Sardine & Mackerel). 

Gelatin is obtained by the hydrolysis of collagen which is the principal protein found in skin and bones. PRISTIN® FISHGEL is the first to use the latest technology of fish derived gelatin in Malaysia. The issue of Halal for Muslims does not arise. PRISTIN® FISHGEL is also suitable for Buddhists, Hindus and those who are concerned with bovine (cow) derived gelatin.

Because mixed natural tocopherols possess antioxidant properties, it is typically added to fish oil FISHGEL to protect the essential fatty acids against rancidity. PRISTIN® FISHGEL contains high quality mixed natural tocopherols which is a better source compared to alpha tocopherol (Vit E) to protect the fish oil from oxidation.

The main difference between liver oil and fish body oil is that liver oil has high amount vitamin D. In warm tropical countries like us, the sunshine usually produces sufficient levels of vitamin D in the body. Supplementation is not necessary. Consuming liver oil in a warm weather like Malaysia is not really recommended.

Three Grades of Fish Oil

Basically there are three grades of fish oil: (1) Cod Liver Oil, (2) Health-Food Grade Fish Oil; and, (3) pharmaceutical grade fish oil.

What distinguishes one from another is PURITY.

Cod Liver Oil LOW QUALITY

Health Food Grade Fish Oil BETTER QUALITY

Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil HIGHEST QUALITY – highly

– May contain PCBs, dioxin or mercury. – Can cause gastric upset including nausea. – Relatively high saturated fat content. – Strong dead fish taste because of impurities. – High dosage not recommended because of high Vitamin A levels that can be harmful, form of fish oil.

– May contain main made pollutants such as PCBs dioxin and mercury. — Limited molecular distillation sometimes done. – Can cause gastric upset nausea. – Relatively high content of saturated fat – Strong dead fish taste because of impurities (break capsule to taste). – May contain oxidized free-radical generating lipids that can’t be tasted.

– True molecular distillation process removes all main made pollutants such as PCBs, dioxins and mercury. – Rarely causes gastric upset. – Low saturated fat content. Will not freeze. – Tastes relatively good because it is so purified. – PRISTIN® meets the same quality control standards for fish oil purity established for fish oils used in ongoing clinical.

A typical one-teaspoon serving of cod liver oil contains 500mg of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.

A typical one-gram capsule of health food grade fish oil contains approximately 300 mg of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.

A 1.2gram capsule of PRISTIN® contains 660 mg of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids with 2 I.U. Mixed Natural Tocopherols. It has twice the EPA and DHA found in health-food grade fish oil.

Not Safe at High Levels

Questionable if Safe at High Levels

Safe at High Levels

May contain the highest levels of contaminants (organic mercury, PCBs and DDT)

May contain varying amounts of detectable contaminants. In addition, the fractional cooling method does not remove the PCBs or the long-chain monoene fatty acids that give rise to gastric distress.

It is so pure and refined that it will not contain any detectable amount of PCBs, heavy metals, dioxins and other contaminants.
