Ultra Omega-3 Overview
There might be hundreds of fish oil supplements on the market, but if you know what to look for, you won't find a better one than NOW Foods Ultra Omega-3. This is the one used by all of us here at All Star Health, and we highly recommend it for you and your family, too. Ultra Omega-3 combines all the best qualities of the best fish oil products, into the state-of-the-art fish oil supplement.
One great feature of Ultra Omega-3 is the enteric coated softgel. Many people need an enteric-coated fish oil supplement to prevent unwelcome burp back that can happen with some fish oils. "Enteric coated" capsules and softgels are made to withstand stomach acids and enzymes, delaying the capsule's disintegration until it's in the small intestine and burp back is no longer possible. Ultra Omega-3 has an enteric coat and is therefore a good choice for these users.
Another great feature of Ultra Omega-3 is the ultra concentrated fish oil used in its formula. With much higher amounts of DHA and EPA per softgel, you can take just 1 or 2 per day to get the 1000 mg per day most experts recommend as a bare minimum amount. With other less concentrated fish oils, you need 3-4.
Finally, you'll know you're getting the highest quality fish oil at a reasonable price with Ultra Omega-3 since it's a product of the NOW Foods line. Unless you're an eskimo, you need to supplement with omega 3 fatty acids and in our opinion, this product is THE way to go.
