What is Omega-3?

Omega 3 softgels are basically omega 3 fatty acids that come in softgel form making them easy to be consumed. Omega 3 fatty acids are a form of polyunsaturated fats which are notoriously healthy and good for us, and are derived from a whole host of different forms. You have omega 3 fatty acids derived from seafood, as well as ones which come from plant-based sources such as nuts. These are known as essential fatty acids due to the fact that the body requires them, but it cannot synthesize them by itself, meaning that they have to come from dietary sources instead. They provide benefits for the major organs, they prevent diseases, they boost immunity, they help assist with weight loss, and much more besides.

How do they work?

To describe how omega 3 fatty acids work in general, would take an age because they provide so many different benefits, that it would be difficult to talk about the complex processes involved in each one. When it comes to the heart for example, omega 3s have actually been found to reduce triglycerides in the blood, subsequently reducing harmful LDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is responsible for fatty deposits and build ups in the arteries, which, overtime, can result in conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, blood clots, and even heart attacks. By reducing LDL cholesterol and lipids found in the bloodstream, the cardiovascular system in general, improves greatly. Studies have also found that omega 3 fatty acids can greatly enhance cognitive brain function, making them ideal for the brain, and for preventing degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. As if that wasn’t enough, they also boost the metabolism and can help communicate with fat burning enzymes within the body, encouraging the body to burn body fat as a primary source of energy, as opposed to carbohydrates.

What are the main benefits of Omega 3 supplements?

Some of the main benefits of omega 3 fatty acid supplements, include:

Fat loss

As mentioned, omega 3 fatty acids can increase the metabolism, allowing the body to burn off more calories and convert them into energy. This is beneficial as the more energy you have, the more calories you can burn off as you become more active. They also help encourage the body to use body fat as a source of energy, instead of carbohydrates.

Great for the brain

Another huge benefit of omega 3 supplements is the fact that they enhance cognitive function, making them great for the brain. This improves memory, focus, concentration, mental alertness, and it can help prevent degenerative diseases, especially as we grow older. Fish is often referred to as being ‘brain food’ because it is rich in omega 3s.

Great for the heart

Another fantastic benefit of omega 3 supplements, is the fact that they are so beneficial for the heart as they help reduce LDL cholesterol and they help strengthen the heart and improve the circulatory system in general. They also provide potent anti-inflammatory properties, which is another great benefit.

  • Fat loss
  • More energy
  • Helps lubricate the joints
  • Helps prevent arthritis
  • Boosts the metabolism
  • Great for the brain
  • Great for the heart
  • Helps regulate hormones
  • Great for our vision
  • And more...

How and when should they be consumed?

Experts recommend a maximum of 3000mg of omega 3 supplements per day. The softgels should be consumed with food, as taking them on an empty stomach can cause a nasty fishy taste. Simply take 1 x 1000mg softgel 1 – 3 times each day.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 - 5 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. Children 1 - 8 years: 1 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. Adolescents 9 - 13 years, Adolescents 14 - 18 years: 1 - 2 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. Store in airtight container, protected from light.

Omega 3 VS Omega 3-6-9

Whilst omega 3, 6, and 9 supplements are very beneficial, experts have found that most people are lacking enough omega 3 in their diets, as omega 6 and 9 are found in a much wider range of different foods and sources. The body can actually produce omega 9 naturally, so we get some naturally, although we still benefit from slightly more. Put simply, all omega supplements are important, it is simply the fact that omega 3 is the most important as it provides the most benefits, plus it is harder to get enough of.

What can it be stacked with?

As this is a general health and well-being supplement, most people will simply consume omega 3 supplements with multi-vitamins, Glucosamine, and perhaps an omega 6 and 9 supplement. There is nothing fancy here, but the benefits are hugely impressive.

It's Omega 3s
steve d. on 06/11/2016
Toronto
Not much to say other than it's fish oil, and certainly has an aftertaste if you're not taking with food... But seriously, if that kind of thing bothers you, I don't know what to tell you. It's convenient for me to buy in massive bulk and not have to worry for months at a time, maybe the price is a little high and the concentration not the best out there, but what do I care, I'm not a scientist

Bad after taste
Alexandre m. on 28/09/2016
I take 2 gellule every 5h and I get the taste of fish after 20min. And its pretty bad
Answer: Hi Alexandre, thank you so much for the feedback. I'm sorry your experience with the product was not a 10/10. What I have noticed with this product is the longer you take these omega 3 softgels the quicker your body adapts and you do not experience this.

Fishy smell
Marc P. on 30/07/2016

Leave fishy tasting aftertaste even when taking with food. Wont buy again.
Answer: Hi Marc, I apologize for the negative experience you had. With regards to these softgels, they are not enteric coated so if you take too many at once or do not build up a tolerance over time you may experience the fishy taste. I would recommend that you start with one at a time and increase from there.

Great Price, but Low EPA/DHA
Brock H. on 21/07/2016
Windsor, Smiths Falls (Ottawa Valley)
For the price, you really can't get better. 1000 pills for 40$ is great, where normally I pay about 15-20$ for 300 pills (although the ones I pay for have a higher EPA/DHA ratio).
If you're strapped for cash, and need a long-lasting amount of Omega-3 fish oil pills (like myself), then this is definitely the one to go for. However, if you are looking for 3-5 grams (considered optimal levels of Omega-3 intake) of EPA/DHA per day, then this isn't the one you're looking for, because not only will you fly through them, but you'll be taking a choking 15 or so a day. If you're looking just for enough to get by, and get the recommended daily intake (but let's be honest, we all want WAY more than that, as does any bodybuilder), then absolutely, great price.

This is definitely the only product I've gotten from this site that I've been able to find better elsewhere (only due to the lower EPA/DHA ratio of these).

I take 6/day and get about 1080epa/720dha. Normally I'd go for around 4grams/epa and 3.5 grams/dha.

Best deal I could find anywhere, and large enough that I don't need to think about restocking for awhile now. The product is top notch, clear casing and I've had no awful fish burps (had to throw out some Costco ones as the casing was very cloudy and I would have bad tasting burps for hours after eating) Will buy again

Most cost effective Omega-3 solution I've found anywhere
Jonathan on 20/01/2012
quebec city
This is the most cost effective solution for omega-3 I have found anywhere on or off the web. The only improvement would be to have the caps extra-strength at 300:200 EPA/DHA instead of 180:120 EPA/DHA so I could take less than 12-18 capsules per day...

What a saving compare to the previous product I was using though I was not burping the other caps, these ones I will burp maybe twice after I take two caplets and there is a little bit of fishy smell it your mouth when it happens but not to the point that I would not buy them again and I don't like the taste of fish so it's not bad. I don't know where the fish is coming from that's my only concern with all the pollutants that we have on this planet planet so that's why I'll give a 4 stars on this product. I will buy again though !

Brandon on 05/07/2015

Use this 90 serving bag as a sample. Based on the contents per tablet, I would recommend at least 3/day split up evenly among your day. They won't give you 'the fish burps' and for those whom experience them they will subside with usage. Great product, and the price only gets better when you go with the 1000 tablet size.

Omegas were cost effective and I can only assume they work well. A word of warning however, these capsules can cause a case of the fish burps. I've been taking these for a few weeks and I notice it, not a good plan before date night!

I've ordered a couple things from Canadian protein and loved them all with the exception of these. There is nothing wrong with them per se, however my major problem is that they are not coated with enteric, so you will get fish burps. So if you are fine with that, they are perfect for you, if not, look elsewhere
