FARGO, N.D., May 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Swanson Health Products' OmegaActiv™ Super DPA Fish Oil was recently named the winner of the SupplySide Insight Award in the omega-3 category. The inaugural SupplySide Insight Awards recognize successful market launches driven by collaborative partnerships between suppliers and manufacturers in three categories: beverage, cosmetics and omega-3.

"Strong supplier partnerships allow us to continue a history of innovation that defines our company. With partners like Cyvex, Swanson is able to offer consumers cutting edge, scientifically validated products at affordable prices."

OmegaActiv™ Super DPA Fish Oil is produced through a partnership with Cyvex Nutrition and contains OmegaActiv™ high-DPA menhaden fish oil, an ultra refined, molecularly distilled and highly purified single-source fish oil.
