What is Barlean’s Ideal Omega3 Fish Oil?
This review of the product Ideal Omega3 Fish oil will help customers have a better-informed opinion about the effectiveness of this Omega-3 product. Ideal Omega3 Fish Oil from Barlean’s represents a concentrated formula in a product which is said to increase the level of Omega3 in the blood and the muscle tissues. The product’s effectiveness will be noticed in improvements of heart health, cognitive functions and visual acuity, and a feeling of improved well-being.
This formula comes in bottles with 30 or 60 orange flavoured softgels, each softgel containing 1,250mg of Omega3. The oil is high quality being ultra-purified and molecularly distilled. The main ingredients are mentioned on the back of the bottle and are as follows: fish oil from Pollock and hake, natural flavors, and natural mixed tocopherol. The softgel capsule is made from fish gelatin, glycerine, purified water. On the manufacturer’s website, only Pollock is mentioned for a bottle containing 30 capsules.
We also found the dosage instructions on the label, which says that one capsule per day should be taken with a meal. Unfortunately, after thorough research, we haven’t found any instructions regarding pregnant or lactating women. However, you should always consult with your doctor before starting any new supplement.
The manufacturer’s site displays a price of $23.23 for one bottle. Bottles containing 60 softgels have a price of around $40. Taking into consideration that only one capsule per day is necessary, the price is quite reasonable. There does not appear to be any discounts available for purchasing in bulk.
Possible Side Effects
The product’s label doesn’t contain any reference to possible side effects, nor does the brochure which we have downloaded from the Internet. Customers also haven’t signalled any problems associated with the administration of these supplements. Moreover, the fish is acknowledged to be caught inside the fresh, frosty waters of Alaska.
Ideal Omega3 Fish Oil is a product certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). This organization ensures that the population of the sea and the ecosystem will continue to be a healthy place in the future as well. Moreover, as we can see on the label, the product meets pharmaceutical standards. In the brochure found on the Internet, the manufacturer commits to 100% guarantee for all their products. They also advertise the IFOS logo which ensures that all the products are tested for purity and safety. On the other hand, their product hasn’t been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, as it is mentioned in their brochure. The manufacturer’s terms and conditions specify that the product can be returned only in the case of damage or nonconformity with the invoice.
The Bottom Line
Although its concentrated formula with 1,000 mg of EPA/DHA contained in only one softgel might direct people to think that it is a good quality affordable product, the lack of reviews, either positive or negative, remains one of the negative aspects related to this product. Also, the general guarantee made by the producer doesn’t give a correct justification for buying this product.
