Description
LifeSpa's Mega Omega natural enteric-coated omega 3 fish oil capsules are made with the highest quality fish oil on the market, sourced from the arctic waters of Norway. This highly concentrated oil provides 600mg of Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA 360mg, DHA 240mg) per soft gel. Vitamin E is added to maintain freshness. Then the oil is molecularly distilled, a process that results in oil that is completely pure and free of contaminants such as PCB's, heavy metals, and pesticides. Every batch is then independently tested and certified for freshness and purity.
  • Suggested Use: Take 1 or 2 softgels 1-3X/day or as directed by your health care practitioner.
  • Bottle Contains: 120 soft gels, 600mg each
  • Ingredients: Natural Marine Lipid Concentrate (EPA 360mg, DHA 240mg), Vitamin E, Gelatin, Glycerin, Purified Water, Enteric Coating (Natural Resin), Vanillin.
  • Product Contains: Fish (Anchovy, Sardine)

The Science

As the media increases consumer awareness of the importance of fish oils, manufacturers face the challenge of eliminating heavy metals and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The industry-leading technologies used in the preparation of Mega Omega surpass the standards for environmental pollutants, including dioxins, PCBs, pesticides, and heavy metals such as mercury.

Mega Omega is processed through special molecular distillation.Molecular distillation is commonly used to purify and concentrate fish oils. In this process, the fish oil is broken down into its basic molecular components and separated by molecular weight. Due to varying molecular weights, specific components can be removed from or concentrated in the oil. This ensures that contaminants can be reduced to levels far below industry standards. It also allows the manufacturer to increase the concentration of active ingredients.


Manufacturing Mega Omega begins with rigorous care and control of the starting raw materials (non-GMO sardines, mackerel, anchovies) to assure optimum oil quality. The oils are distilled in a controlled, pristine vacuum environment to minimize distillation temperatures. The exposure time, even to these lower distillation temperatures, is tightly controlled and uniform, resulting in levels of impurities well below the industry standards. The technology employed for Mega Omega meets special molecular distillation standards.    As this oil is a concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids, our manufacturer goes above and beyond the traditional purification methods to ensure its safety. This is accomplished by the following:

1.  A triple-phase molecular distillation purification process to maximize purity while concentrating the EPA and DHA polyunsaturated fatty acids

2. Ensuring consistency in contaminant removal, and therefore purity levels, through uniform processing times

3. Reducing the evaporation stage to half the time of traditional
systems to drive down the oxidative risk

The proprietary technologies used in the manufacture of Mega Omega are in accordance with pharmaceutical standards that assure safe, consistent fish oils. Research suggests it takes 2 g/day of DHA supplementation for a month to saturate the plasma and three to six months of supplementation to saturate the tissues.[1] Concentrations increase in breast milk within less than a week of DHA supplementation.[1] Research and studies provide evidence that omega-3 fatty acids antagonize arachidonic acid-induced proinflammatory prostaglandin formation, provide resolvins and protectins to aid the body’s “cleanup” response to the inflammatory cascade, promote neurological health and mental functioning, support a balanced immune response, and support healthy glucose and insulin metabolism.[2-10] Furthermore, supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*[10-13]

Mega Omega's natural enteric coating is the only one on the market made from an all-natural food grade resin, as opposed other enteric coatings that are made from synthetic and potentially carcinogenic substances. Most fish oil capsules are not enteric coated and break open in the stomach after 15 minutes, often causing unpleasant side effects such as bad taste, "fish burp," and upset stomach -- even when taken with food. Our naturally enteric coated Mega Omega capsules can be taken on an empty stomach and are guaranteed not to break down for an hour or more. This allows them to pass out of the stomach and into the intestines where the nutritive rich oil is best absorbed and is healing to the intestinal villi, and this in turn benefits over-all digestion and health.*

Essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) from fish oil have been shown in numerous studies to promote cardiovascular health by supporting optimal triglyceride and cholesterol levels and reducing platelet aggregation.*  Fish oil has also been shown to promote optimal joint function and overall brain and nervous system function*. In one recent study, seniors experiencing mild to moderate mood issues showed significant improvement by taking one capsule of fish oil per day containing 600mg of essential fatty acids (the same amount contained in one capsule of Mega Omega).*
