Sometimes we’re unable to get sufficient Omega-3 through our diet and are forced to bridge the shortfall with supplements. Among the many supplements available is Omega XL. The manufacturer tells us that its formula is concentrated with over 30 healthy fatty acids including Omega-3 DHA and EPA as well as up to 22 times more Omega-3 free fatty acids than regular fish oil. Omega XL is said to to help reduce joint pain associated with inflammation and its form factor is a smaller capsule than most Omega-3 supplements. Read our full Omega XL review for more details.
What’s in Great Healthworks Omega XL?
OmegaXL’s ingredients are;
- Perna Canaliculus PCSO-524 oil extract – Provides a rich source of over 30 essential fatty acids including EPA and DHA which work in unison to relieve pain and fight inflammation.
- Natural monounsaturated olive oil – Contains oleocanthal, a compound with similar properties as Aspirin which helps in reducing inflammation and stiffness hence relieving joint pain.
- Vitamin E – In addition to being a good anti-inflammatory agent, vitamin E gives the body the support it needs to to fight against free radicals as well as boost the production of healthy red blood cells.
The manufacturer does not provide detailed information on the proportions of each ingredient.
How Do You Use Great Healthworks Omega XL?

Omega XL can be purchased online from the company’s website or other online stores. The manufacturer’s introductory offer includes two 60-capsule bottles priced at $49.95 plus additional $9.95 but choosing this mode of purchase puts you in the automatic reshipment program where you receive, and be charged for, a 60-capsule bottle every month for $60.90 excluding S&H. The single bottle price on Amazon at the time of writing was $66.45.

The Conclusion of Our Great Healthworks Omega XL Review
Omega-3 fatty acids are a common ingredient in joint care supplements. Omega XL is made from Green Lipped Mussel extract (PSCO-524) with, says the manufacturer, over 30 essential fatty acids including EPA and DHA, potentially making it an effective joint and arthritis remedy. However, customer reviews, with only half positive and more than one-third negative (at the time of writing) seem to indicate it’s a very hit-and-miss prospect. We’re also very wary of any auto-refill program. Finally, regardless of where you buy it, it’s not competitively priced for the category.
