Conclusion of Our Omega-3 Fish Body Oils Review
Positive elements of the Omega-3 dietary supplement are that it comes in easy to swallow gel capsules. It is largely an all-natural product. It is free from corn, wheat, gluten, yeast, milk, salt, sugar, starch, preservatives, and artificial flavors. Therefore the capsules may be taken by people with various allergies. There were also a number of not so positive comments. Although mostly natural, the supplement does contain animal (bovine) gelatin and is therefore unsuitable for vegetarians. This product only contains 120 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 180 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These quantities are much lower than other brands of Omega-3 products. Optimal levels are 800 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 600 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). There were no special discounts offered by the manufacturer for first time buyers or bulk orders. The dosage instructions on the website were not detailed enough. The instructions did not specify at what time of day to take the supplement, what side effects to watch out for, how long to take the supplement for and who can most benefit form the supplement. We suggest that you shop around for an Omega-3 supplement that provides the highest dose of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 180 mg of eicosapentaenoic acids as possible, and one that has a reliable and lengthy return policy and guarantee.
