About Omax3

By HighYa Research Team
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.

    Watch for ordering scam

    • Stamford, CT,
    • Jun 4, 2014

    I was offered a 30 day money back trial for $12.95. They didn't say or glossed over that they would send a 3 month supply (for $120) since after 21 days that was non-cancelable.

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

    Rash all over

    • Hawaii,
    • Jul 7, 2015

    I just received a trial offer and on just my second day I got a really bad rash reaction completely all over my body. I went to see my doctor and he confirmed the culprit. I tried claiming the refund on shipping but they won't make an exception even though it gave me such a bad reaction. I never took anything that caused such a reaction.

    Scam Alert! These guys love stealing your credit card info.

    • Illinois,
    • Jan 26, 2015

    First off, read up on Fish Oil men. The latest studies point towards an increased risk of prostate cancer! Anyhow, my wife purchased a "trial" series of these pills under the assumption that there was a 30 day money back guarantee. Oh, but wait, the product takes at least 21 days to ship (ridiculous), leaving a 7 day window to return the product.

    Then, without notice, they will start charging your bank account with the credit info they obtain during the initial sample order. So she called the company to get a refund and they refused but offered half off as a compromise. Instead, they charged us an additional $50 without notice.

    This company is a wolf in sheep clothing (or fish oil if you prefer).

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

    Auto Order Scams

    • Orlando, FL,
    • Feb 10, 2015

    A friend of mine tried this product with severe crippling arthritis trying to avoid joint replacement. Not only did it not work, but they automatically sent her out a huge auto order of three bottles and charged her credit card even after she told them the company that the sample did not work and not to send her anymore.

    The rep then lied and said she must have forgotten and then tried to act like it was just a misunderstanding.

    No it wasn't a misunderstanding, it was done intentionally.

    My friend does not have internet access but wanted me to post this to warn others not to buy this product.

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

    This is a scam

    • Blythe, CA,
    • Jul 13, 2015

    Don't try out the trial month. I did it only to find out they charged my account $129. Customer service never, and I mean never answers. The oil is the same that you can get from GNC or any other store.

    low dosage

    • Walkertown, NC,
    • Jun 6, 2015

    The dosage was only about 275mg & the EPA was over 1000mg. So you want more of the dha, that is much more beneficial to your body. With so little DHA, the price should be much lower especially for only 30 days .DO NOT buy fish oils with ethyl esters in the ingredients. Take time to research that.

    Con Artists

    • Arizona,
    • Jul 18, 2015

    I would advise anyone that's thinking of using their credit card with this company not to. These people are common thieves. I spent $12.95 for my free sample and they actually have charged my card $169 without my permission and I have no pills or have not received my money back. When I agreed on the free trial base they told me that I had 30 days that I would have to call in to cancel my order. The 28th and 29th day they went ahead and charged my credit card after I already told them not to charge my credit card, if I liked it I would call and order it and they charged me without my permission. I am still fighting to get my money back and I am not going to give up because these people are crooks. I have a couple of different agencies that are helping me go after these people and my credit card company. They will start billing you from the moment you order from them so I strongly advise you to no do business with this company.

    And on top of that their omega 3 didn't do anything to relieve my pain. This is a terrible thing when you are trying to buy some kind of medicine to make you feel better and they stress you out and make you feel worse. They are taking advantage of people that are in pain. So please find another company to order from because these people are crooks.

    Scam Alert! Never got the product.

    • Ontario, Canada,
    • Jul 19, 2015

    I ordered the trial online and I never received it. Spoke to a customer rep and they said it was shipped but returned to their warehouse (no reason given why it was returned, customs maybe?) so she's sending it again.

    I waited for another three weeks, but still no product, called customer service again. Unfortunately I just found out it was never re-shipped and now they want me to pay for shipping & handling AGAIN and that they won't give me a refund.

    What a waste of my hard-earned money! I was so optimistic about the product and wanted to try it but their poor service just ruined everything for them. Not worth your time, money, or effort.

    Scam

    • Richmond, VA,
    • Jul 30, 2015

    I did not feel any of so called immediate effects upon starting this supplement, if you want to call it that, especially the great overall feeling promoted by the infomercials. All hype and especially the free trial. It is not a free trial because you receive the product too late in the trial period and when you call because it is not effective you get the run around, and rudeness, and then when you are adamant about a refund they still charge you for the so called free trial, claiming that you have to pay a restocking fee. They just make money off of the shipping and restocking. I would not recommend this product over any other similar product that I have used. Probably fake physicians and fake testimonials. It is way overpriced for what it does not do.

    I still have joint pain and shoulder and neck pain and stiffness.

    • Kaufman TX,
    • Sep 2, 2015

    I have a 6 months supply of Omax3. I am taking my 3rd box. No pain or joint relief. No stiffness relief. I have spent all this money for no relief. It also says it will help with cholesterol. Will have that checked in a few weeks. You just have to live and learn. I really don't want to take all the pain pills, or the cholesterol medicine. This is just sad people put stuff out, we buy it and it does not work.

    Company is not reputable

    • Sugar Land, Tx,
    • Oct 13, 2015

    Called and ordered a 6 month supply. Told the marketer that I did not want a membership that I just wanted to try the product for 6 months and if I liked it I would call back. I did not see any significant results so I did not call to set up the auto send. Low and behold I received another 6 month supply in the mail. I called to ask why they sent it and they said that I could return it but I would have to pay a 25% restocking fee. I did not sign up for the auto delivery so I felt I should not have to pay for the restocking fee. This company is not a good company. They try to sell you everything but the kitchen sink and when you say no to everything they still screw you by setting you up on auto delivery. Do not order anything from this company. It will just give you an ulcer.

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