The following review is focused on the supplement Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000. The manufacturer of this dietary supplement, Healthy Choice Naturals, claims that this product can help to support a healthy heart, and that this supplement is a good source of antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids.
- Fish Oil (1000 mg)
- EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) – 400 mg
- DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) – 300 mg
- Other ingredients include gelatin, vitamin E, glycerin, and purified water
It is important to note that this formula’s eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid of 400 mg and 300 mg, respectively, is low compared with other, similar products. The standard for an effective dose is 800 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid and 600 mg of docosahexaenoic acid. Either way, these elements are have been found by researchers to be effective in lowering the risk of heart disease. They also lower blood pressure, and reduce the blood levels of homocysteine. In addition, Omega-3 helps to thin the blood, thus minimizing the risk of blood clots. Furthermore, Omega-3 has an anti-inflammatory effect, therefore is useful for people with autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis, just to name a few. However, these benefits will not be accessible for pescatarians; they cannot make use of this product as it contains gelatin.
The manufacturer recommends taking one (1) or two (2) capsules daily with food, or as instructed by your doctor. However, you should not take more than two capsules per day.
A 120-capsule bottle is available online on the manufacturer’s website at $18.90 (this is discounted from $27.95, therefore saving $9.05).
The manufacturer does offer a 90-day risk-free money-back guarantee. If a customer is not satisfied with this product it may be returned, whether or not opened, as long as within 90 days of purchase. The product returned should not be more than a 90-day supply. No questions will be asked as to why you are returning the product. This is careless of the manufacturer: data gained could be used to alter/improve the formula. Either way, the shipping fee is not refundable.
Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000 Review – Conclusion
Omega-3 has been found to offer many health benefits, from supporting a healthy heart to a healthy brain function. This product is backed by a good guarantee. A customer may try it; if dissatisfied, they may return it for a refund. Another good point about this product is that it is made from fish caught in areas not over-exposed to toxins.
That said, there are some concerns about this product. For instance, the amount of eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid is half of the standard for beneficial health. Although a fish-based product should suit pescatarians, this particular product contains gelatin (derived from beef), therefore rendering it unacceptable to those with dietary restrictions. Lastly, the manufacturer’s guarantee is unclear. Even though it is stated in the return policy that a 90-day supply of the product is covered by the guarantee, all the bottles are sold as a 120-days supply. Therefore, it is unclear whether any product is in fact covered by this policy.
