Ultra Omega-3 Review
Ultra Omega-3 is marketed as a cholesterol free dietary supplement designed to support cognitive function. The product exclusively targets adults, except pregnant and nursing women and people who have a medical condition, who are advised to consult a physician.
The manufacturer ensures that the fish oil concentrate used is manufactured under strict quality control standards and is free of potentially harmful contaminants such as heavy metal or mercury. The capsules are also molecularly distilled and are enteric coated, thus the usual fishy odor of similar products is eliminated and the product is easier to tolerate.
The supplement is manufactured by New Foods, an American company with a business experience in the health foods and nutritional supplements business sector of more than 40 years. The company claims it is one of the best-selling brands in health food stores and is a leader in its field.
Ultra Omega-3 Ingredients
Ultra Omega-3 includes the following ingredients: EPA – Eicosapentaenoic acid, DHA – Docosahexaenoic acid, Softgel Capsule (gelatin, glycerin, water, enteric coating), and Vitamin E (as natural d-alpha tocopherol).
Ultra Omega-3 is a blend of 2 of the most important Omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA and Vitamin E from soy.
EPA and DHA are essential Omega-3 fatty acids. The body needs them as it needs other nutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc) to function normally. Cold water fish, broccoli, cauliflower, kidney beans and nuts are only a few food sources for EPA and DHA
EPA’s most beneficial effects are considered those of enhancing the immune system and positively influencing behavior and mood. DHA is essential to both pre and post-natal brain cells functioning and formation. Daily recommended DHA dosage varies between 600 and 1000 mg, whereas the optimal daily Fish Oil Dosage may vary between 1 and 3 grams of combined EPA and DHA. Like many Omega-3 supplements, this one also contains vitamin E to stabilize the oils and prevent them from becoming rancid.
The manufacturer also recommends a balanced diet and exercise for optimum results of the product. There are no consumer testimonials to conform the product’s effectiveness. Consumer reviews are generally positive with few side effects reported (gasoline smell).
The recommended dosage is 1 capsule taken 1 to 2 times daily with food.
