The manufacturing company is based in Australia and is called Melrose Health Group. The formula is recommended for the temporary relief of arthritic pain, but also as a natural support for the health of the heart, skin, hair and nails. Additionally, it may help reduce joint swelling and inflammation.

According to the manufacturer, the supplement is free from lactose, dairy, salt, gluten, wheat, yeast, artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.

Melrose Health Group is committed to providing products that tend to the health needs of the entire human body. The company has an extensive market experience and claims to deliver safe and effective natural and organic health products and various foods for the entire family. Its product range currently includes pet care products, household formulas, personal care products and a large number of condition-specific dietary supplements. The company holds a TGA (therapeutic goods processing license), and many of its products are certified Organic by the Biological Farmer Association in Australia.

Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil is recommended to adults and children. Also, unlike many similar formulas, this product is suited for pregnant women.

Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil Ingredients

Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil includes the following ingredients: Natural Fish Oil – Omega-3 Marine Triglycerides – Eicosapentaeonic Acid (EPA), and Docosahexaeonic Acid (DHA).

Product Features

Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil is a liquid mixture of Omega 3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA.

EPA and DHA are considered essential fatty acids because they are not naturally synthesized by the body, but have to be obtained from diet instead. Fish oil is an abundant source of these acids, which can also be found in certain types of seaweed. The most important properties have been extensively studied and there is sufficient amount of scientific research to back them up. EPA and DHA are important to the health of the nervous system due to their blood thinning properties. They help with peripheral circulation and may help reduce the risk of stroke, coronary artery disease and diseases generally affected by poor blood circulatory function.

DHA is found in large amounts in the structure of the eyes (retina) and brain. Lack of sufficient DHA levels have been associated with mood disorders, poor memory or vision impairment. EPA on the other hand appears to be more important to behavior and may help alleviate depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Both EPA and DHA may contribute to preventing and treating ADD and ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment.

Omega-3 supplements may interfere with blood thinning medication, hence caution is advised. Adults are recommended taking 5 to 10 ml daily, while children should use half the adult dose.

Conclusion

Like the great majority of dietary supplements based on Omega-3 fatty acids, Melrose Omega 18/12 Fish Oil too claims to effectively assist with joints, the heart and skin health. The formula’s advantages over many similar products are the lack of artificial compounds, its liquid form, its flavored taste and the absence of Vitamin A which also recommends it as a viable alternative for pregnant women. Although there are no reviews published on the product, we have access to a large number of clinical trials and research studies investigating the health enhancing benefits of Omega-3. We however advise you to talk to a professional before using any dietary supplement.

    Hi, I’ve been using Melrose fish oil for quite a few years. About 10 years ago I had debilitating pain in both hands, I had steroid injections in the joint at the base of thumb and forefinger, that helped a little, I started taking 25mls per day, and the pain is mostly gone and I have full use of them. I do a lot of craft and jewellery work and need the dexterity and fine motor skills. I now take 50mls, but often forget, so it can be every 2 or 3 days, hence the larger amount, and if left too long it can be 100mls, This becomes expensive, so I want to manage this and not waste the oil. Can you advise on this please, Thank You, Marg
