Omega XL

Published July 6th, 2018

Finally Fish Free?

Omega XL touts itself as an all-natural, but very potent omega-3 supplement with a stronger than average EPA and DHA dosage without an ounce of fish oil. It sounds promising: hearty joint pain relief without fish burps. But then again, just about every omega-3 supplement sounds promising on the outset. The question, as always, is whether Omega XL lives up to its premise.

We checked out a number of customer reviews and researched what exactly goes into Omega XL in order to decide whether it was worth a try.

Here’s What the Customers Say

Overall, the reviews we found of Omega XL were positive, even glowing. One of the first things we noticed was customers who bought this product not just for themselves but for loved ones. Whether it be their parents, siblings, or just a close friend, almost every one of those instances reported positive results. It requires much more trust in a product to offer it to a loved one than to try it yourself, so that bodes well for Omega XL.

However, of course there were reviews from customers who purchased Omega XL for themselves, and they were just as satisfied with their own experiences. Many customers said that they were returning customers or that they would be returning customers because of the quality of pain relief they experienced after taking Omega XL. One customer even mentioned that they recommended Omega XL to all of their coworkers.

Omega XL stands out from much of its competition in that it’s not fish oil, and it frequently references this in promotion. Since “fish burps” tend to be a major problem with most fish oils we’ve seen, this stands to be an appealing feature, and many customers commented that they noticed the difference.

The biggest complaint seemed to be that it was pricier than other omega-3 supplements, but even many of those reviews that referenced the price said that they felt Omega XL was worth its price and didn’t deter them from buying again.

Another customer noted that your first purchase of Omega XL is half-price which made it more affordable for them.

So, all in all, customers had great things to say about Omega XL. But what’s its secret? What makes Omega XL so effective for so many?

A Fishless Omega-3

As stated, Omega XL is not fish oil. Instead, it’s made from green lipped mussels that inhabit the Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand. The Marlborough Sounds are often considered the cleanest waters in the world, carefully kept by the Department of Conservation. These waters are pure and cold, thus ensuring a fresher product. The nutrients are carefully extracted from each green lipped mussel to get the most power in each small capsule. And that’s truly the main ingredient. The rest includes extra virgin olive oil, gelatin, glycerin, purified water, and vitamin E.

That’s really it. No soy, no gluten, no omega-6, and most importantly, no fish.

The next question is whether it’s as potent as fish oil. However, according to 30 years of research and over 30 clinical studies, Omega XL seems to be more potent than standard EPA and DHA requirements — 18% and 12%, respectively. The researchers at Omega XL have spent decades trying to make the most powerful, pure product they could without the use of fish oil, and in that they seemed to have succeeded.

A Surprisingly Easy Pill to Swallow

One of the main complaints against fish oil supplements, besides the fishy aftertaste, is that the pills are often too large and difficult to swallow. This was one problem that a customer found with a competitor, Nordic Naturals:

On the other hand, Omega XL pills are notably small and easy to swallow. Only two softgels are needed each day, and customers have noted that compared to their past experiences with fish oil, these go down without a problem.

While no reviews could be found about the safety of Omega XL, there was nothing to be found about health problems that arose because of Omega XL, either. The fact that Omega XL uses all natural, concentrated ingredients seems to go over well with many customers, in fact.

All That For What Cost?

60 softgels of Omega XL costs $59.95 on Amazon. On the Omega XL website, their standard price is $144 for two bottles (120 softgels). Considering the dosage for Omega XL is 2 softgels each day, one bottle adds up to a month’s supply. This does make Omega XL one of the pricier omega-3 supplements on the market. However, some customers claim you get what you pay for with that cost and that to choose a cheaper option might mean opting for cheaper quality.

It’s also important to not when considering the cost of Omega XL that there’s a significant discount for your first time purchase. The introductory offer is two bottles for $39.95, just over a fourth of the standard cost for the same.

So if you’re unsure whether Omega XL is worth the cost for you, you can try it for two months, see what you think, and if it’s not for you, cancel the future orders.

Which brings us to the conclusion:

Should You Try Omega XL?

It’s hard to find drawbacks in this product, besides possibly the cost. In terms of potency, safety of ingredients, and a lack of fish burps, it has countless satisfied customers to vouch for it. And despite the cost, the introductory offer is sweeter than most of the ones we’ve found on the market. So if you’re tired of fish burps or unsure about the ingredients in your omega-3 supplements, Omega XL seems like it’s certainly worth a switch.
