Made from fish oil, the manufacturer of this Omega-3 supplement claims that no symptoms of reflux or nausea will accompany the taking of this product, which is easy to tolerate. The manufacturer further claims that this Omega-3 fatty acid could reduce the possibility of coronary heart disease. Therefore, this review will focus on this product called Ultra Omega-3.
- Total fat (1 g) (consisting of saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, and monounsaturated fat) natural fish oil concentrate (1 g)
- Omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (500 mg) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (250 mg)
Other ingredients included are: softgel capsule (bovine gelatin, glycerin, enteric coating, water) and vitamin E (as natural d-alpha tocopherol).
Contains fish (such as anchovies). Vitamin E from soy. This dietary supplement product is free from yeast, wheat, gluten, milk, egg, and shellfish. However, this product is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians, as it contains gelatin. Another issue is that this formula contains only 500 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 250 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), other, similar products offering much higher levels, in fact almost double the amount.
The manufacturer of this dietary supplement states that one (1) or two (2) capsules should be taken daily with food. However, these capsules may only be taken by adults. Those who are pregnant, nursing mothers, or on any prescription medication, should first consult a doctor before taking this health supplement.
This Omega-3 health product is available in two different quantities (90 and 180 capsules). The 90-capsule bottle costs $23.99. The 180-capsule bottle costs $43.99. No discounts are offered.
Despite our research efforts, we were unable to locate any signs of a manufacturer guarantee. This is of concern. It could imply that the manufacturer is not fully confident of the product’s efficacy.
Ultra Omega-3 Review – Conclusion
This Omega-3 fatty acid supplement is made in a facility having GMP certification. In addition, of the 679 reviews on this product on Amazon, our research found that most were of a reasonable quality and can therefore be trusted.
There are, however, certain issues with this dietary supplement. There is no manufacturer guarantee on this product. Also, even though the reviews on Amazon are mostly to be trusted, our research did find that 82 reviews had been deleted from Amazon. This may point to some deceit. However, even though this product is suitable for people with a range of allergy issues, this supplement is not suitable for vegans or other non-meat-eaters. The capsules contain gelatin. Lastly, and surely one of the most important concerns about this supplement, is that the amount of omega-3 fatty acids is much lower than found in other Omega-3 products on the market. Persons serious about their health would prefer taking an Omega-3 supplement of greater potency. The question is whether this Omega-3 dietary supplement will deliver sufficient value for money. There are many other similar products that can deliver more, being of better quality, with solid guarantees, and positive reviews that have not been altered.
