Optimum Nutrition Fish Oil Details

  • Heart Healthy Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Long-Chain EPA & DHA Oils
  • Easier-To-Swallow Softgels

Optimum Nutrition Fish Oils contain long-chain fatty acids, with equally long names like docosahexenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA are essential fats that cannot be made by your body. So, consuming them through foods like salmon and supplements such as the ON Fish Oil Softgels is the only way to get DHA and EPA. Better yet, our Fish Oil Softgels are enteric coated, which means that you get all of the benefits of fish oils without the fishy aftertaste that you might encounter without this special coating.

A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of South Australia in Adelaide and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition; found that a combination of fish oil supplements and exercise, led to an average reduction in fat mass of 3.5 lbs. In contrast, there were no significant changes observed for the fish oil-only group, the placebo-only group, or the placebo with exercise group. Unlike previous research where the study design has been questioned, this was a well-controlled study showing that the combination of omega-3 fats from fish and aerobic exercise produced significant improvement in body composition in overweight and obese subjects.

Despite the mounting health evidence behind adding fish to your diet, many avoid fish due to the rising costs of fresh seafood, fears about contaminants, or simply because you don't like the taste. To save money buy in bulk at savings clubs like Sam's or Costco and freeze whatever you won't use in a couple of days. If you're concerned about heavy metals, choose farmed catfish, tilapia, Alaska & Pacific salmon, Pacific flounder, or anchovies, which are generally much lower in mercury than larger deep sea fish.

For those of you who want to eat fish but can't get past the taste, try a different type. Like meats – which vary in the texture and gaminess, different fish have more or less fishy taste. Still can't bring yourself to do it? Consider taking a fish oil softgel supplement. Better yet, try one that's coated like our new Enteric Coated Fish Oil Softgels.

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "I have enjoyed this product. I like the packaging and I like the price. Recently someone tried to talk me into a more expensive fish oil supplement. Their fish were more elite, swimming in pristine waters in a rare section of the ocean. I tried them but to be honest they had a fishy aftertaste and I didn't feel one bit different than from having taken Optimum's product. Either I'm not sensitive enough to tell the difference or I'm just too smart to buy into a marketing gimmick. Since I'm a fish by nature (Pisces) I believe the second part is true. I'm continuing to use Optimum Fish Oil--at least until the spirit moves me in a new direction."

  • Lower levels of body fat through increased insulin sensitivity
  • Higher metabolism of fat
