Over the years I have seen the benefits of fish oil touted online and on TV but never really tried it because I HATE the taste/smell of fish and wrongly assumed that all fish oil supplements would taste like fish. I was approached by BodyVega to test out their Pure Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement for free, for review purposes.
After the Fukushima nuclear fallout, I have been extra leary of products that have come from the Pacific Ocean. I was happy to see that BodyVega tests for over 250 contaiminants (including Mercury) and is molecularly distilled so that it is free of pacific toxins caused by the Nuclear meltdown.
I am a big Amazon junkie, and always read reviews before I buy stuff to see what real customers have said. Amazon customers Give BodyVega Fish Oil 4.7 Out Of 5 Stars, Making It The Top Rated Fish Oil On Amazon. BodyVega has a 100% Satisfaction guarantee, if you don’t love it, they refund your money, no questions asked!
BodyVega offers 1,500mg of Omega3 fatty acids, which is up to 50% more than most competitors. BodyVega Omega 3 Fish Oil contains an incredibly potent amount of long chain amino acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA have been studied for years and can help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride levels, and increase good cholesterol (HDL). Omega 3’s, EPA, and DHA should be consumed daily if recommend by your physician or you need aid improving some functions of the body including: improving blood pressure, lowering bad cholesterol, improving mood, decrease dry eye, support cardiovascular health, and reducing inflammation.
When the product arrived, I forgot about it for a few days and didn’t realize Tony has started taking it. He noticed when he took it in the morning, by the time he got to work, he felt really relaxed – to the point where he was almost sleepy. He switched to taking it a little while after dinner and noticed his quality of sleep seemed to be improving, which also led to being more alert and focused at work.
Working nights, I am always looking for something to help my sleep. Once I started taking these, I too noticed I was more relaxed before bed. In the morning (well technically late morning) when I got up I was ready to go, doing housework and running errands. I felt more alert without feeling anxious. I didn’t notice any fishy taste when swallowing the pills, and I didn’t have any “fishy burps” like customers of other brands report.
These pills are quite a bit more expensive than other fish oil pills, but when you compare ingredients, I think it is probably worth it.
As always, pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18 and individuals with known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
