Triple strength OMEGA STRONG is deal for advanced athletes and workout enthusiasts. Is super purity and potency helps you maximize recovery and support a healthy inflammatory response to training, as well as enhance cardiovascular health and overall performance.
OMEGA STRONG IS POTENT:
OMEGA STRONG is more than three times as concentrated in omega-3 fatty acids as traditional fish oil supplements. Each serving (two soft gel capsules) contains an equivalent amount of omega-3s as one serving of wild cooked salmon.
OMEGA STRONG IS PURE AND FRESH:
OMEGA STRONG is made using a multi-stop process involving high-vacuum molecular distillation. This process both concentrates the fish oil and effectively removes impurities. OMEGA STRONG is tested by an independent laboratory to ensure that it is potent, pure and fresh. The soft gel capsules bear no fishy smell. OMEGA STRONG meets or exceeds standards set by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED).
New OMEGA STRONG from MHP is ideal for advanced athletes and workout enthusiasts. That’s because its super potency, purity and freshness – all confirmed by independent laboratory testing – helps support faster recovery from training and help reduce exercise induced joint pain and inflammation. OMEGA STRONG also supports cardiovascular health and overall performance.
The health benefits of fish oil have been the focus of an estimated 16,000 studies to date. The benefits are attributed to its content of the omega-3 fatty acids known as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), sometimes referred to as the “fats of life”. For this reason, it is important that you consume sufficient amounts of these two omega-3s
Athletes may require even more EPA and DHA
Some researchers suggest that athletes should consume 1000-2000 mg of EPA + DHA each day in order to counteract exercise-induced inflammation and support overall health. Achieving this from the diet alone would require that most North Americans make a dramatic increase in their consumption of oily fish. For instance, to achieve a daily intake of 2000 mg of EPA + DHA, you would have to eat approximately:
The typical North American diet is lacking in EPA and DHA, and the human body just isn’t equipped to make enough of them on its own. Therefore, omega-3 supplementation could be of critical importance. OMEGA STRONG will help you fill the gaps and obtain the many benefits of increased EPA and DHA intake.

Why not just get Omega-3s from the diet?
Fatty Acid basics
Structurally, a fatty acid consists of carbon atoms linked together in a chain. Each carbon atom can be thought of as having four “hands.” Most of the carbon atoms in the chain hold onto neighboring carbons, one with each hand. The other two hands of the carbon usually hold onto hydrogen atoms – again, one with each hand. Sometimes, however, these two hands hold onto one another to form a double bond.
A fatty acid that contains a double bond is said to be unsaturated. This is because it isn’t holding onto as many hydrogen atoms as it otherwise could. (Conversely, a fatty acid that holds onto as many hydrogen atoms as it can is said to be saturated.) Omega-3 fatty acids are said to be polyunsaturated because they contain more than one double bond in their carbon chain (“poly” equals “more than one”).
WHY IS SUPPLEMENTING WITH OMEGA STRONG SO IMPORTANT?
Reason #1: Your body doesn’t make enough EPA and DHA
Your body can convert ALA into eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). These omega-3s are believed to be responsible for the numerous health benefits of fish oil. But there’s a catch. Most of us don’t consume much ALA, largely because we don’t eat enough fresh plant foods, especially the leafy green vegetables that are rich sources of ALA.
Americans have been estimated to get only about 7% of their calories from PUFAs. Of this, only perhaps 10% is ALA. That’s well under 1% of the average overall caloric intake. In stark contrast, nearly 90% of our PUFA intake has been estimated to come from omega-6 fatty acids. This is important because omega-6s “compete” with omega-3s in the body, effectively “canceling out” the considerable health benefits provided by the latter. Many North Americans consume 10-20 times as much omega-6s as omega-3s, which is an unhealthy ratio. (Note: OMEGA STRONG contains no omega-6s.)
There’s another catch. Though the human body can convert ALA into EPA and DHA, research indicates that the rate of conversion is quite low, even more so in men. Less than 4% of ALA may be converted to EPA, and 0.2% may be converted into DHA.
Essentially what this means is that you can consume large amounts of flax seed or other ALA-rich foods or supplements and yet never achieve the tissue levels of
Take 2 softgel capsules daily with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Keep out of reach of children. Store at 10-30 C (50-86F). Protect from heat, light and moisture. Do not purchase if seal is broken.
Reason #2: Most diets don’t provide enough EPA and DHA.
The solution, it would seem, is to eat more EPA and DHA. The most widely available food source of these omega-3s is cold-water oily fish. Guess what? As stated earlier, most of us don’t eat enough oily fish. In one study, only a third of subjects reported eating at least one meal of oily fish per week. Yet in order to achieve the target EPA + DHA intake of 500 mg/day recommended by some international organizations to reduce your risk of dying from heart disease, you would need to eat two meals (a total of 224 g or 8 oz) of oily fish per week. If you rely on white (non-oily) fish, the required number of weekly meals increases to up to nine. That’s a lot of fish. (Individuals with a documented cardiovascular condition are recommended to consume 1000 mg or more of EPA + DHA daily.)
A Simple Solution: OMEGA STRONG
Why is OMEGA STRONG so pure and potent?
Oil extracted from the fish is taken through a sophisticated multi-step process that involves high-vacuum molecular distillation (HVMD). HVMD gently and quickly processes the fish oil, making it even purer and more potent while protecting the integrity of the fragile omega-3s.
OMEGA STRONG is a Super-Potent Concentrate
The United States federal government does not have fish oil standards. But MHP does. In particular, it uses those set by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED). Testing confirms that OMEGA STRONG meets or exceeds GOED standards.
√ Take it with meals: The absorption of omega-3s is likely to be enhanced when food is in the stomach, particularly if it contains some fat.
√ Be consistent: It is important to take OMEGA STRONG consistently. This is the secret to results. Every day dosing is best. It takes time for omega-3s to accumulate in your cells and tissues and exert their beneficial effects. Two to three months of consistent supplementation may be necessary before improvements are noticed.
√ Store it properly: Close the lid firmly after use and store OMEGA STRONG in a cool, dry place, away from light. Omega-3s are fragile. The same chemical structure that allows them to provide health benefits also makes them sensitive to environmental factors including heat, light, air, metals, water and enzymes.
