Omega-3 is a high potency Icelandic fish oil for heart health, cognitive function, and your immune system. It’s sold by Bio Thrive Labs, who offers a dozen products for sale. They appear to be located in Grandville, Michigan, and may have been founded in the summer of 2014. The company doesn’t offer many details about themselves, other than claims about high quality and strict standards. This does seem to be one of their better products, and most of what Bio Thrive Labs has done is well received.
Omega-3 contains the following ingredients: Carbohydrates, Fat, Saturated Fatty Acids, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids, Monounsaturated Fatty Acids, Total Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), Docosahexaenoic Acis (DHA), Other Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Each serving (two capsules) contains 1480 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, including 860 mg EPA and 430 mg DHA. There aren’t any other active ingredients, so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. Some extra vitamin D could help though, as many people are deficient in that too. Fish oil is often considered best with the young and the old. It helps cognitive function and behavior in younger age groups. In older age groups it can maintain blood pressure, heart health, memory, and more. A supplement with high EPA is best for the average adult, in a wide age range, and it can do a lot of things. People do report different results, as fish oil’s effects vary by individual. Some people feel they get increased energy and memory from taking fish oil supplements. Fish is known as a brain food, after all. But most benefits are long term. Fish oil is something that can prevent future problems, and as such, there’s no better time to take some fish oil supplements than today. Omega-3s are essential for maintaining a wide variety of bodily functions.
- Claims to be burpless product with a natural lemon flavor. Some people do get burps, but you can take these capsules with food and/or freeze them to try and prevent that.
- No fishy odor. Only low quality or expired fish oil supplements will have a significant smell, in most cases.
- No independent verification of the quality and purity of this product. The manufacturer guarantees satisfaction, but there isn’t a good way to know if everything is true as advertised.
- Large capsules which may be difficult to swallow. The company also doesn’t mention what kind of fish their oil comes from.
Overall people seem to like this product, although there’s some dissatisfaction. A few reviewers have said they didn’t like this fish oil. Some people get fish burps or experience an aftertaste, and some people don’t. A few have said these capsules are much larger than normal. There’s a lot of variation in personal experience, so you may not run into any issues. Few people do. Sadly this doesn’t seem to be the number one recommended fish oil for most people. Different brands offer similar products, and some will prefer those brands. Overall, this is a decent product, and plenty of reviewers love it. Bio Thrive Labs appears to have something good here.
