You can only get Omega 3 oils from fish but today’s deficient diets typically lack raw and whole foods such as grains, fiber – and good sources of oily fish. Omega 3 protects against a host of degenerative brain, memory, heart, joint, and immune conditions. This is thanks to the fatty acids found in oily fish such as salmon and sardines, as Omega 3 is not found in non-fish sources. You can measure the efficacy of a supplement by how much DHA and EPA it contains, and whether these fall above or below daily recommended thresholds. You can also look at the purity of the fish harvested. Today’s review is of Optimum Omega 3 Fish Oil by Dr Tobias. You will indeed get more than the daily recommended dose of both fatty acids with this supplement – in fact, Dr Tobias asserts that you will get 3 to 4 times more than in other supplements.
What’s In Dr. Tobias Optimum Omega 3 Fish Oil?
- 920mg EPA – This is a good fat critical to wellbeing. This is a high, above- average dose. It aids vascular health and helps cells fight degeneration on a molecular level.
- 600mg DHA – A fatty acid integral to good eye and cognitive function. This is an above average level.
- 1690mg Total omega 3 fish oil – Fish oils contain fatty acids, vitamins and compounds that balance brain chemicals for optimal mood, fight aging, lower cholesterol, keep the joints protected and lubricated, and slow down brain degeneration.
These amounts are as found by an independent third party and as such differ slightly from what is on the label. However the label scores a high 83% accuracy rating, according to the report.
How Do You Use Dr. Tobias Optimum Omega 3 Fish Oil?
Do not give this to children and note that the product has fish. Wheat, peanut, soy and other allergens. Take two softgels a day with meals, or as per your doctor’s advice. If you are pregnant, nursing or have a known medical condition, get medical clearance to take this supplement first.
The 180 count bottle sells for $28.48 on Amazon. This is a 3-month’s supply. It appears that if you subscribe via Amazon to receive 5 or more Dr Tobias products to 1 address you will be eligible for a discount of up to 15%.
Is There A Guarantee?
Dr Tobias does not offer a stand-alone refund policy so you would have to enforce the generic Amazon refund policy. Therefore it’s likely you’ll only get a refund if the wrong product is shipped to you.
The Conclusion of our Dr. Tobias Optimum Omega 3 Fish Oil Review
We agree with the manufacturer that in a single serving you can indeed get up to 3 or 4 times more DHA and EPA than in other supplements, but in the totality of any review we also have to take factors such as cost into account. So, while we agree with Dr Tobias, we must note that this isn’t the only supplement containing these high amounts of DHA and EPA, and we have found one or two coming in at a lower price point as well.
We like that the product is harvested from pristine sources, and that there is a molecular distillation process in place to ensure minimal mercury residue. The coating of the capsules also ensures that there is no fishy aftertaste. In general, the manufacturer has followed a transparent harvesting and manufacturing process, with independent report verification giving the product an 83% label accuracy rating. The main issue that militates against a lack of recommendation however is that you can only get this product through resellers; indeed the manufacturer does not have its own website. You will be left without recourse to a refund should you trial the product and find it not to work for you. To sum up, there are risk-free purchases at a lower cost with similarly impressive fatty acid levels.
