About Omax3

By HighYa Staff
Updated on: Oct 9, 2017

Developed by physicians associated with Yale University, Omax3 claims to be an “ultra-pure” omega-3 supplement that contains “93.9% pure omega-3,” and is a patented formula with a high ratio of EPA to target inflammation.

In addition, the manufacturer claims that omax3 has no fishy aftertaste, and is third-party tested for purity and concentration.

Omax3 is manufactured by Omax Health, Inc. formerly known as Prevention Pharmaceuticals, Inc. based out of New Hope, PA. Omax Health is not rated with the Better Business Bureau at the time of this writing.

How Omax3 Works

According to the Omax3 website, most people don’t get enough omega-3s, which contain the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA, from their diet. These nutrients are an important part of overall health, as they improve heart, joint, eye, and brain health, balance your body’s inflammatory response, and reduce triglyceride levels.

To put this in perspective, one dose of Omax3 is claimed to contain the same omega-3 content as 16 krill oil softgels.

With this in mind, the product’s website claims that the leading store-bought omega-3 supplements only include 30% omega-3, while Omax3 contains “93.9% concentration.”

On top of this, the product is claimed to be easy to swallow, to cause no fishy odor or aftertaste, and to be twice tested for purity —especially when it comes to saturated fats. The product is NSF tested, which is a third-party that certifies products for it’s contents.

In fact, Omax3 is claimed to have “93.9% pure omega-3 content” and to be double molecular distilled, which is a pharmaceutical process to remove omega-6 fatty acids, as well as fish-related contaminants such as mercury, lead, and PCBs. To prove this point, images on the product’s website shows several frozen Omax3 softgels next to the leading competitor’s.

After taking a closer look, the Omax3 capsules are completely clear, while the competitor’s have turned cloudy. According to the company, this cloudiness is a result of all the saturated fats, which are not contained in Omax3.

The ingredient list for Omax3 contains only the following:

  • Vitamin E 10 IU
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids 1.5g

All Omax3 batches are third-party tested to ensure purity, and in order to begin experiencing benefits, you’ll simply need to take 2 softgels daily. According to the company’s website, Omax3 cause no known side effects.

Omax3 Pricing & Refund Policy

While Omax3 is available through Amazon.com and Vitamin Shoppe, if purchased directly through the manufacturer at omaxhealth.com, you’ll have more options:

  • 1 Month Supply (60 softgels): $47.95
  • 3 Month Supply (180 softgels): $119.95
  • 6 Month Supply (260 softgels): $199.95

There is also an option to order through subscribe & save where you save 10% off for signing up for auto-shipments and get free shipping. First time orders come with a 60-day money back guarantee and return policies are posted online. You can reach customer service at 800-765-6691 or customercare@omax3.com.

If purchased elsewhere, refund policies will vary by retailer.

Bottom Line: Is Omax3 a Scam?

According to WebMD, omega-3s have been demonstrated time and time again to have a wide variety of health benefits. However, WebMD also claims that it’s best to obtain omega-3s directly through fish, instead of through a supplement. With this in mind though, Omax3 is claimed to be derived from anchovies and sardines, which are shown to be some of the best fish from which to obtain omega-3s.

Based on our research, it appears that Omax3 was previously manufactured by Cenestra Health, LLC, which changed to Prevention Pharmaceuticals sometime between May and August of 2011. Prevention Pharmaceuticals changed their name to Omax Health, Inc. in September of 2017 with new management and a commitment to expand into a leading health and wellness brand.

They launched a health and wellness blog at blog.omaxhealth.com and a new website at omaxhealth.com.

Finally, most online Omax3 reviews are on amazon.com or at TrustPilot from customers who have tried the product, most of which appeared to be positive, with no common complaints.

Bottom line: If you’re going to begin taking an omega-3 supplement, Omax3 appears to be a solid choice. However, keep in mind that you should always consult with your physician before beginning any new supplement regimen.

  • Great product!

    I am writing this review because I feel that this product needs to be given its due.

    I have been taking Omax3 for almost four months. In that time I have noticed my skin complexion has gotten clearer. I also have had a cholesterol test done in the last week, and my cholesterol is down to the normal range for the first time in nearly five years. I have been taking fish oil products for close to seven years and have never seen this kind of result.

    I am impressed with the quality of this product with its ultra-purity, along with not having any fishy aftertaste. I also noticed that my joints, especially my knees, seem more flexible and I have no inflammation or pain in them as well.

    I am truly amazed at the results that I have obtained by using Omax3 and would highly recommend it to anyone!

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

    Really helped my back pain

    I started taking Omax3 on a trial basis, but with nothing particular in mind that I was looking to accomplish. I just thought it would be good for my heart health since I did have A-Flutter (with Oblation surgery last year) and a stent put in last year as well.

    After about a week of taking one Omax3 per day, my back pain was cut from a normal 6-7 on a good day (on a scale of 10), 8-9 on a bad day, to what remains around a 3-4 and sometimes even a 2-3. I had started wearing a back brace at the same time and originally thought the brace was the reason for the drop in pain. But I have since dropped the brace and now know it's the Omax3.

    I played basketball professionally many years ago and always had something of a stiff back. I also broke my back and pelvis in a motorcycle accident 12 years ago and just recently found out through an MRI that my L4 is slipping off my L5. So I assumed the chronic pain was something that will be with me for the rest of my life. And it was killing my golf game, but that's not something I was ready to give up on. Now I don't have to give it up. I have been amazed by what has happened to me.

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

    Ripped off

    • Wichita Falls, TX,
    • May 9, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I saw the TV ad in February with the claim that that the product was pure and there was no burping fish oil taste, so I placed an order for one box to try it. In doing so, they offered a second box at a discounted price, and I declined, just wanting to try it out. For me, I still had burping and acid reflux, so the product did NOT work.

    Two months later, in April, the Prevention Pharmaceuticals hit my checking account for $79.99 and sent me another shipment. I called customer service, and they agreed to give me an RA number. After waiting 13 minutes on the phone, I was cut off. When I finally got customer service on the phone, I was given an RMA number and told I hand to pay a 25% restocking charge.

    DON'T YOU get RIPPED OFF by this company.

      William, I am sorry to hear you a poor experience. Omax3 is 93.9% pure omega-3, it's blister packed for freshness which typically reduces fish burps. We have revised our policies regarding restocking fees based on customer feedback.

      Taking Omega-3 helped my knee injury to the point where I can run again. It really helped me and got me moving again. I am 50 and highly recommend it to anyone with injuries. It’s great for the aging athlete.

    Great product

    I have been using Omax3 for almost two years. I have rheumatoid arthritis, and I am on a prescription medication for it. Taking Omax3 has decreased the need for me to take anti-inflammatory medication. It has also brought my cholesterol levels down to normal.

    This is a great product. I am a health care professional, and I recommend this product to my patients on a regular basis. I have not been compensated for this review.

    Rip Off - $50.00 Restocking Fee

    My husband and I both have high cholesterol and joint pain, so the ad on TV caught our attention. I called to order and was informed that I really needed the vitamin D to make the fish oil absorb more efficiently. I ordered a 6 month supply of both.

    After taking the product for 6 months, our joint pain has not decreased and my blood work shows my cholesterol is higher than ever.

    I called to cancel the automatic shipment and to return the unopened second box. The customer service rep informed me there is a $50.00 re-stocking fee. This is absolutely ridiculous. Not only does the product not work, in fact in my case made matters worse, but they want that much money to re-stock?

    Please do not trust this company. I would rate them with a negative star if possible.

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

    Works but beware

    • Ypsilanti, MI,
    • Jul 18, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    This product is great and really worked to ease my joint pain but the pain is back since I discontinued using OMAX3.

    Why would I quit using this miracle product? Unfortunately, if using for joint pain, one must take 4 of the capsules a day and I can't afford the product.

    I told the person with whom I initially placed my order repeatedly that I was talking this for joint pain and he said nothing about doubling my order to take pet instructions. Imagine my surprise and disappointment when I read the instructions.

    I am currently looking for an affordable alternative.

      Greetings!

      We have been taking Nature Made Fish Oil capsules for some time now, and they aren't nearly as expensive. They don't have a fish oil taste, and they can take away the pain just as good as Ibuprofen. They look cloudy when frozen, but maybe all fish oil capsules look cloudy when they are frozen.

      Kristin Chadwick ,

      Hi Peg, the cost is due to the high-concentration of EPA omega-3 fatty acids thus, the clear omega-3. We have a "New Subscriber and Save Program" at omaxhealth.com that may help lower the cost. Most of our customers purchase the 6-pack to get the best savings.

      Thank you for reviewing Omax3.

    Omax3 policies will make you sick

    • Denver, CO,
    • Mar 28, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    Was very wary when I decided to do the 30 day trial when they kept asking that I understood that I would be charged if I did not cancel within the 30 day period. Decided (unfortunately) to proceed with the trial.

    The product was very similar to the omega product I was getting from Purity Products (a very good company BTW) so decided to cancel the future order. Most mail order companies have 24/7 customer service, but when I called on Sunday to cancel (day 29) I got a recorded message. I left my cancellation on their voicemail system. You probably have guessed by now I received the second shipment anyway. When I called to find out why I was told that cancellations could not be made via voicemail. I said that the voicemail message did not state that. So, they wanted to charge me a re-stocking fee of 32%.

    I have disputed the charge as fraud. I am sure they are very practiced at dealing with these disputes, so I am not optimistic, but don't like people that do business this way to get away with what in my opinion is a scam.

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

      Why wait until day 29? No mention of the product you probably got for just shipping costs.

    I had a friend order this product through the phone (she has no internet) and she decided to cancel within 2 days of ordering! The cost was going to be too much for each month and she decided to try a different route! When she canceled, she was not told she had to cancel the doctor on call or any other "items". She was "fast talked" into purchasing. So when she found a charge of $24.95 for this on her credit card bill she was unhappy! She was charged for this service she didn't request and she didn't remember ANY of these "extras". After calling all morning yesterday, she was finally able to get the right number and cancel this service. These people who run this website, or the phones need to talk slower and advise people what exactly they are signing up for!

    Great for winter depression

    • Atlanta, GA,
    • Feb 28, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have always had Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) (aka winter depression, not linked to year-round depression), and this winter, I have been managing it with strategic, almost excessive (but not quite), use of Biotech's D3 50,000 IU (taking three doses, four times a week). I take Cal-Mag daily, which helps the body absorb D3, and helps prevent bone density loss from birth control. Anyway, I found a bunch of studies showing that Omega 3 with high EPA and low DHA are super beneficial to SAD. Within a week of adding this into my vitamin regimen, I noticed a difference in my overall mood/outlook. I'm very sensitive to serotonin fluctuations, so this was great.

    Sadly, the price has jumped $20 (I paid $32, but it's now $49) in the three weeks since I bought it first. I'm still going to shell it out, though. The way I see it, I just need it for four to five months a year, so it's definitely worth it, and way better than paying for chemical SSRIs!

    Omax3 expensive poison

    • Austin,mn,
    • Feb 10, 2016

    Several of the foil packs are very impure. One smelled up the room of dead fish in foam and others smelled like turpentine. It was sickening. This product should be ashamed of the claim to be pure. I requested a refund since these were six months before expectation. Do not buy this product. Fish Oil at the drugstore is better than this junk.

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