Our review today is of a Omega 3 supplement brought to the market by Healthy Choice Naturals. They promise that Omega Naturals Fish Oil Supplement 1000 EPA/DHA is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and supports a healthy heart in particular.
Omega 3 oils and their fatty acids are critical to good overall functioning. In particular brain cognition, heart health, joint healthy and susceptibility to degenerative diseases are all a consequence of a lack of these oils and their critical fatty acids, and vitamins too. This is due to the free radical scavengers, anti oxidant and anti inflammatory properties contained in the oils. Healthy Choice says Omega Naturals is 230% more powerful than other fish oils.
What’s in Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000?

The Conclusion of Our Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000 Review
There are adequate doses of EPA/DHA in this supplement, so you should not need to take more than 1 capsule per day, unless so directed by your doctor or if your symptoms are advanced. You should experience improved heart, brain and joint health as well as more vitality and improved memory.
However, we can’t find independent factual evidence to concur with the manufacturer’s claim that it it is 230% stronger than other fish oil supplements. We have researched omega supplements extensively, and came across ones containing higher 400mg/300mg percentages of EPa and DHA respectively. Even if, in this supplement, the stated amounts of EPA and DHA were included apart from the 1000mg fish oil and not as a composite part of it, we still cannot see how the claim would hold true. In fact, there are several Omega-3 supplements that contain higher EPA/DHA fatty acid percentages than is contained in these Healthy Choice Natural capsules. This is either an oversight, exaggerated claim or false claim by Healthy Choice, which makes us hesitant to recommend this supplement. It calls into question what else is an oversight or exaggerated.
