Dr Oz: ConsumerLab.com – Where to Buy Omega 3′s

Dr Oz confronted a recent Greek study making headlines for claiming Omega 3s don’t work. But he said the study also concluded that Omega 3s reduce heart disease risk by 9%. He and Dr Tanya Edwards discussed whether you should get Omega 3 fish vs supplements. They also explored what to look for when shopping for Omega 3s.

Though products could range from trace amounts to 1000 mg per pill, Dr Edwards wants patients to get the highest amount of Omega 3s out there. FDA regulations could target companies that aren’t providing quality products, but funding and resources aren’t there to follow up on these concerns.

Dr Oz: ConsumerLab Omega 3 Reviews, Daily Values Scam & Algae Oil Cost

Dr Oz shared rules for choosing an Omega 3 supplement using ConsumerLab.com Omega 3 reviews and the daily values scam to avoid. Plus, why you should try Algae Oil Supplements instead of fish oil supplements.

Dr Edwards said she recommends getting consumer information about Omega 3s and other products through the ConsumerLab.com website. Have you ever used this site? Will you be checking your Omega 3s and other supplements out online?

Dr Oz explained what to watch for at the store in choosing your Omega 3 products. His first rule is to look for 600 mg DHA on the label. He said DHA should be in front of “Omega-3” on the label.

As Dr Edwards explained it, DHA has myriad health benefits throughout the body, and it’s key to get at least 600 mg of it in their supplements. Two women in the audience checked their bottles and found that they had products that passed this first rule.

Omega 3′s Don’t Have a Recommended Daily Value

Dr Oz said if your bottle advertises a recommended daily value, this is a marketing gimmick to trick you. He said this is a huge scam because the FDA doesn’t recommend a guideline for Omega-3, DHA or EPA.

Lastly, Dr Oz said you should choose an Omega 3 supplement in a dark colored or opaque bottle. According to Dr Edwards, natural oils like fish oils could go bad if they are oxidized. That could cause an unpleasant smell. Be careful when buying a multiple month supply.

If you’re buying a bulk bottle, Dr Edwards recommended portioning some of it into a smaller bottle to keep with your medicines, and storing the large bottle in your fridge.

Dr Oz said that he prefers smaller pills, and he typically chooses algae-based pills instead of fish oils. He said that at an average cost of $10 per month, this is a worthwhile health investment.

Dr Oz: How Do You Bribe People?

Dr Oz met Ann in the audience, who said she bribes her children (including triplets) to clean the family’s minivan. She uses junk food to entice them to help her get the car clean. He said that his own children respond to bribery and other techniques in the Oz household.

Cece said she’s figured out a way to get her husband to do unenviable tasks. She requires her husband to woo her for their intimate encounters with candles and massage oils, followed by key lime pie.

What’s your most dreaded household chore, and how do you get out of it? Have you ever bribed someone else to do it for you?

Comments to Dr Oz: Algae Oil, 600 mg DHA Omega 3s from ConsumerLab.com & Fish Oil

  1. Dr Oz, once again, schilling for a company, ConsumerLab.com. How can consumerlab be bias about any vitamin when they direct you to buy from certain companies. If it was independent and unbiased they wouldn’t have links to buy from Swanson, Puritan’s Pride, etc.

  2. I would like to know the name of the small pills that are algae pills that Dr. OZ and his family take I am confused as to buy WHat?
