What is High Strength Omega 3 – 500mg?

High Strength Omega 3 – 500mg offers the ideal solution for anyone who fails to achieve enough oily fish in their diet or anyone looking for particularly high levels of the omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. These fatty acids provide the health benefits associated with omega 3, including support for brain, heart and eye health.*

Healthspan’s 500mg capsules contain fish oil that has been highly purified to ensure that all toxins are removed. Two capsules deliver 33% total omega 3 fatty acids, including 120mg DHA and 170mg EPA.

The environmental sustainability and protection of the world’s sea life are highly important to us, so we’re proud to say that our High Strength Omega 3 – 500mg contains oil that has been granted ‘Friend of the Sea’ certification. Friend of the Sea are known for their thorough certification procedure, using stringent guidelines before awarding their seal of approval.

Ideally our intake of omega 3 should come from a balanced diet which includes plenty of oily fish, yet only one third of the population eat it on a regular basis, with many eating none at all. Supplements can provide a means of obtaining a daily intake of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, if enough cannot be obtained through diet alone.

The UK’s Food Standards Agency recommends a minimum of two portions of fish per week – this equates to 450mg per day of long chain omega 3 fatty acids, which is why we recommend one to two capsules daily.

*The beneficial effect for brain and eyes is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA. The beneficial effect for heart is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA.

Additional Information

If you are taking any prescribed medication or have any medical conditions always consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking vitamins or supplements.
Keep out of sight and reach of young children. Do not exceed stated recommended intake.
Food supplements must not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Store in a cool, dry place. If you experience an adverse reaction, stop taking the supplement and seek medical advice.

In light of recent changes to our fish oils, our capsule shells have switched from marine-source gelatin to Halal certified animal-source gelatin. Animal-source gelatin is more durable than marine-source gelatin, therefore reducing the risk of your capsules leaking and making them easier to remove from the blister pack.
For information on how this change may affect any special dietary requirements you may have, please contact our call centre on 0800 73 123 77 where one of our highly-trained product advisors will be happy to help.

I've been taking these for almost 2 months now and I can really feel a significant difference in how fresh and supple my joints feel.. being a regular exerciser (4-6 times a week) I've been used to my shoulders, hips and knees aching a lot.. but now it's very rare that they do thanks to the boost in omega 3's I'm supplementing into my diet courtesy of Healthspan!

It's great to hear that you can feel the benefits of taking this product.

Highly recommended - buy with confidence......

Good product - easy size to take - do not like the packaging.

We're sorry you're not a fan of our letterbox-friendly blister packs - We had a lot of negative feedback about our tubs and have moved our whole range over to foil-sealed blister packs to ensure uncontaminated, fresh tablets right through the pack.
