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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    • 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.

    Crooks. Don't Buy.

    • Jan 20, 2016

    The product does NOT work. Don't order. Extremely skilled sales people who care nothing about your health, only getting your money. In common with other reviews; I was set up for 6 month autoship, no longer wanted the product because it did not work, and was told I would receive a refund, but will be charged a $42.25 restocking fee after 3-4 weeks of processing.

    The customer service manager was disgustingly rude (yes, the manager) and I plan to expose these FRAUDS whenever given the opportunity. PLEASE don't order, save yourself some money and stress.

    The good reviews I'm certain only stem from the companies brainwashing ads that convince their prey (people in pain) that the pills will make them better; hence, mind over matter, such as a hypochondriac that convinces themselves they are sick.

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