Do a search on Amazon.co.uk for Omega 3 supplements and you’ll see over 500 results
Trying to work out which of these products to buy and which are best for you is nigh on impossible. Other than relying on the reviews and ranking that Amazon sets for a product, how would we know if it's any good?
We all know how reliable Amazon’s reviews are!
Recently I embarked on the task of finding out which are the best Omega 3 Supplements in the UK. It may sound odd coming from a company that already creates and sells an Omega 3 supplement, but we wanted to know if other brands are doing a better job than us.
Then, I discovered the big Omega 3 lie, and how most consumers are being misled about the contents of their Fish Oils supplements.
The first part of the lie comes from the perception of value when you go to buy a Fish Oil supplement. Let's see an example:
Omega 3 Fish Oil 1000mg - 365 Softgel Capsules - Up to 12 Month’s Supply - Pure Fish Oil with Balanced EPA & DHA
Sounds like an amazing deal right?
Omega 3 Fish Oil 360 Soft Gels - 2000mg per serving | High Levels of EPA & DHA | Premium Easy Swallow Omega3 Fish Oils Gel Capsules
Again, 360 capsules suggesting a year's supply and 2000mg per serving - seems like a great deal.
However, there's a problem - it's all lies. These two products are some of the lowest quality Omega 3 supplements rather than the best omega 3 supplementyou'll find on Amazon.
The 50% Rule For Omega 3 Capsules
When someone asks me about a competing product to Good Fats, our Omega 3 supplement, there is one very simple check I make to see it’s quality… and I want to show you how easy it is for you to check too.
The main components of Omega 3 are:
Eicosapentaenoic acid - EPA
Docosahexaenoic acid - DHA
Alpha-linolenic acid - ALA
EPA and DHA are the important parts, ALA much less so.
To make it best quality omega 3 each capsule must contain at least 50% EPA/DHA
Avoid the 12 months supply tubs, often showing as 365 capsules or bulk buys. The fish oil will likely degrade and go off within 6 months of breaking the seal on the tub.
Don’t get suckered in by high review counts on Amazon listings.
So how does Good Fats - Omega 3 supplement stack up?
When we created Good Fats to be the best fish oil supplement in the UK we had one very simple requirement… The quality of the fish oil had to be greater than 70% EPA/DHA. Here’s our label:
In each 1000mg capsule we have 500mg EPA and 250mg DHA.
So 75% of every Good Fats capsule is EPA/DHA, making us one of the highest quality Omega 3 supplements in the UK.
We had one simple goal when creating Good Fats from Lean Greens. The highest quality Omega 3 with maximum efficacy.
A Good Fats capsule contains 750mg of EPA/DHA in a 1000mg capsule. Much higher than our baseline 50% requirement, and over twice as much as the top sellers on Amazon! We believe this makes it the best omega-3 supplement on the market in the UK.
