Omega-3 fatty acids are known to have a number of health benefits, both physical and mental. From improved cardiovascular health to the alleviation of anxiety and depression, these essential fatty acids should be staple ingredients in your daily supplement routine. It is important to ensure that your chosen supplement provides an effective dose of omega-3 which will help fight heart diseases and improve brain performance. In this review, we will provide detailed information on NOW Ultra Omega-3 to determine its ability to provide desired results when compared to alternative products on the market.
What’s in NOW Ultra Omega 3?
The primary ingredient in this product is Natural Fish Oil Concentrate, providing Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). These two essential omega-3 fatty acids are known to lower blood fat and raise “good” cholesterol. These two ingredients form the building blocks of an effective omega-3 product and so it is no surprise finding them in this product. This product does not include any additional ingredients, such as Garlic Oil Concentrate, that can increase its potency and ability to prevent heart problems. These ingredients should be considered when adding an omega-3 supplement to your diet.
How Do You Use NOW Ultra Omega 3?
As a dietary supplement, it is recommended to take one (1) softgel capsule 1 to two (2) times daily with food. A single serving of this product includes 750mg of omega-3 fatty acids out of the recommended 1500mg per day. 1 softgel per day is therefore too low of a dosage and we recommend taking 2. This means that a 90-softgel bottle contains 45 servings for best results rather than the suggested 90 servings. This product is intended for adult use and should not be used by children.
These bottles can be purchased through NOW’s online store. Bottles of 90 and 180 softgels can be purchased. A bottle of 90 softgels costs $23.99, while a bottle of 180 softgels costs $43.99. This is not a significant saving and the company does not offer further discounts or specials which limits the purchasing options available to you.
Is There a Guarantee?
Upon further research, we have noted that NOW offers a return policy on new and unopened products only. These products can be returned for a full refund within a maximum of 60 days from purchase. Though this policy is in place, the lack of a policy regarding opened products indicates that they may not meet customer expectations. The efficacy of this product cannot be assured and is, therefore, a major concern.
The Conclusion of Our NOW Ultra Omega 3 Review
This product, with an increased dosage, provides effective quantities of omega-3 fatty acids that can promote cardiovascular health and prevent heart disease. The reasonable price is appealing and the ingredients are beneficial ones found in most fish oil-based products. However, the lack of a guarantee raises concerns regarding the efficacy of this product. The need to take an increased dosage reduces how long each bottle will last. There are alternative products that are significantly cheaper. Customers have complained about inconsistencies between bottles and off-putting smells which have hindered their abilities to consume the supplement. In conclusion, it is for these reasons that we cannot recommend Ultra Omega-3.
