About Omega XL

Touted as the “secret” to relief from joint pain, Omega XL is a nutritional supplement that features a highly-concentrated extract containing up to 22X more free fatty acids than regular fish oil. The supplement, which is endorsed by none other than Larry King, is claimed to provide reduced joint pain and inflammation.

Omega XL is manufactured by Great HealthWorks based out of Hollywood, FL, which has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having 160 closed complaints. Online customer satisfaction regarding the product appears to be evenly split, with the most common complaints including failure to work; that is doesn’t include enough active ingredient to make a real difference in your health; and high price.

How Omega XL Works

Omega XL is an Omega-3 joint health supplement that uses a patented, highly concentrated formulation of 30 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA. This lipid extract is claimed to be backed by “30 years of multiple published clinical studies” which show its effectiveness in reducing inflammation and stiffness, decreasing bronchial tightness (often associated with asthma), and reducing aches and pains.

The secret to this “super oil” is the fact that it is derived from the green-lipped mussel native to New Zealand, which are grown over the course of 18 months in “pristine” waters. Once harvested, these mussels are processed into a “powerful fatty acid combination” that is all natural, contains no harmful toxins or PCBs, and has no fishy aftertaste.

In order to start seeing benefits, you’ll simply need to take one Omega XL capsule twice daily. According to the product’s website, there are no known side effects or drug interactions, and Omega XL is even safe to use for individuals with shellfish allergies.

Omega XL Pricing & Refund Policy

If purchased directly from the manufacturer, Omega XL is priced at $49.95, plus $9.95 shipping and handling. For this, you’ll receive 120 softgels (two bottles of 60 softgels each), which translates into a 60-day supply.

Keep in mind that as soon as you place your order, you’ll be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. As a result, you’ll be sent a fresh 30-day supply of Omega XL once per month, and your credit card will be charged $$60.90, plus shipping and handling.

Omega XL comes with a 90-day refund policy, which begins the day your order is placed, less shipping and handling charges. Outside this 90-day period, no refunds will be honored.

To cancel your autoship program or to initiate the refund process, simply contact customer service at 800-488-8082 or support@greathealthworks.com.

Bottom Line: Is Omega XL a Scam?

While we have no reason to believe that Omega XL is a scam, keep the following in mind prior to placing your order:

Most importantly, while the ingredients in Omega XL have been researched for 30 years, evidence for some claims (such as asthma control) is relatively sparse. Also, remember that some of the evidence is not based on human clinical trials. On top of this, we read several complaints that Omega XL does not contain high enough concentrations of active ingredients in order to make any real impact in your health.

Next, there are no ingredients listed on the product’s website. If you’ve already read our Garcinia Cambogia Buyer’s Guide, you know that failing to include a product label or full list of ingredients is a big red flag that you should stay away.

Finally, none of the claims made by Omega XL have been evaluated by the FDA. However, as we mentioned in our Nutritional Supplements Buyer’s Guide, it’s important to note that the FDA does not provide oversight of nutritional supplements. In essence, this means that nutritional supplements manufacturers can make essentially any claim about the efficacy of their products, without having to back them up with hard evidence. And as we noted above, Omega XL provides no evidence that it works as advertised. In addition, some of the most common complaints we encountered included failure to work and high price.

Bottom Line: Even though Omega XL is endorsed by a celebrity, there are many similar nutritional supplements on the market, so it may be worth your time to do some research. Also, as with any other nutritional supplement, you should always consult with your physician prior to beginning.

    Just try and cancel your order! They won't let you!

    When you call to cancel you push #3 and wait 45 minutes, then they will not accept that you want to cancel. They try another sales pitch, even if you are very very polite, they will not let you cancel!

    It is a very painful process, they do not understand the words “Please cancel my order”, they pressure you and try multiple tactics and even say they will cut your costs in half. But they won't cancel your shipments.

    I wanted to cancel because after 8 months of using it, I honestly felt no change. I just want to cancel my order!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Great product

    I was on vacation in T&T and I overheard on television doctors speaking about Omega XL and it can do for the body. The next day I went to port of Spain looking for the product but it was sold out by one pharmacy. The next day I went back to port of Spain and went to four different pharmacies selling the same product at different prices. I went to the last pharmacy call penny wise and bought the product. I took the product and the next day my body felt like I was 20 years old again. I walked all over port of Spain within two days and felt no pain. This product works and I will recommend this product to anyone suffering with joint pain. I'm not paid to say this but I highly recommend this product.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    SCAM

    • FLORIDA,
    • Jun 25, 2016

    I had called to ask questions and to make sure that I would not be put on automatic autoship.

    The agent I spoke with told me that I would not be. I then stated that I would call back as I needed to speak with my partner.

    The agent, Linda, I believe, told me that she was a supervisor and there was no guarantee that I would get her again, and she would have to be the one to note that I did not want autoship.

    So, you ARE put on autoship.

    The reviews I had read are correct, about being put on automatic autoship, and when you try to tell them to stop the shipments, they try to convince to stay on. Even when you tell them no, they still charge you.

    If this company has SO MUCH faith in their product, they would not use such sneaky, underhanded, irresponsible, uncaring, disrespectful tactics.

    They would have Faith, not only in their products, but for their customers, as well, to know that if this omega really does what it says it does, the customer will call to order more and MAYBE let them know that then they would like to be put on autoship, without ANY hassles, should they want to cancel.

    The fact that they treat their customers, the public with such disdain and disrespect, only tells me that they have no faith in their what they are selling.

    They are a scam.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Best product ever

    I have had a lot of arthritic pain for about 10 years and it got worse as I get older. I am 57 now. I was hurting so bad a couple of months ago when the Larry King show came on talking about this product and I even though it costs higher than I would like, I gave it a try to see if it would help with my pain. I do not take pain pills. It took 2 months to kick in but my pain has improved about 80%. I plan to stay on this forever.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
