What are Omega 3 Softgels?
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid (EFA) that is found in the diet from sources of oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid because it cannot be synthesised by the body and must be consumed through the diet.
Benefits of Omega 3 Softgels
The essential fatty acids commonly found in fish are made up of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which are both long chain fatty acids. When combined, EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart. DHA also contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function and vision. These beneficial effects are obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA. Omega 3 softgels provide 360mg of EPA and 240mg of DHA per 2 softgels.
Who are Omega 3 Softgels Suitable for?
Omega 3 softgels are recommended for anyone who wants to increase their daily intake of omega 3, and are particularly ideal for anyone who lacks fish in their diet.
Consume 1 softgel up to 3 times daily. Best taken with food.
Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dose. This product should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet. Keep in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Not suitable for vegetarians. Store out of the reach of young children.

I had received this in a diet and weight loss bundle just a couple of days ago, I started taking them yesterday. At first I found it hard to swallow and it took me a couple of tries to actually finish swallowing it, there was a funky smell in the pot so I was worrying about an after taste but luckily... There was no after taste!! I was surprised to find an Omega 3 pot with no after taste. A day later (today) I was able to swallow the Omega 3 instantly with no trouble like I had yesterday, and even though it has only been a day, I have noticed that my joints feel more healthier, I constantly used to have to click my neck, fingers, elbows, back and knees, and sometimes it used to be hard, now sometimes I don't even have to click them, I don't feel the need to and sometimes they click instantly instead of me hurting myself to do it. I will 100% buy this product again!
Brilliant essential supplement for a great price! The capsules are quite large but you get used to them! They're smooth & you can hardly taste it at all! They do smell slightly but what can you expect with Omega 3 eh! Delivery was super fast as usual - cant fault MyProtein!
Cheap and exactly as described, as you get lower and lower down to the bottom of the tub it smells more and more fishy but that is expected from fish oils! Always buy these
A must have in your diet, whether you eat fish or not. I do a lot of intense exercise and so take these tablets to support my joints. Never had any problems taking 2 of a morning and 2 of an evening.
Our body's do not produce enough omega 3 even if all you are was fish! It's an essential supplement for me, helps keep my weight down, skin hair and nails healthy.
I been using them for a while, I like them. BUT and it's a big BUT, my last 2 tubs had burst ones leaving a really bad smell and oily coat that lingers over your fingers and gym bag etc.. It's quite sickly. My colleagues and mrs moan at me!
I like it. Good thing to take while fasting, will keep hunger in check. And no burps, seems like a quality product.Goes Well With:vitamins D&E
Great easy to swallow capsules. I got a 250 capsule pot and take 1 per day. It's a lot, a big pot full to the brim. The health benefits of fish oils are well known so it's a good one to get into the habit of adding to the supplement arsenal. Often we're so busy getting protein, BCAA, Creatine etc. that we forget the basics. The capsules are longer and thinner than others I've tried, which I find makes them easier to swallow. They also seem to have quite a thick skin on them which is great as often the really soft capsules repeat on me later in the day. No problems here. You can get them elsewhere a few quid cheaper at base price but be sure to pick up a pot when they come up on offer. A 250 pot will last you a good chunk of the year!
Great product, reasonable price. The capsules are easy to swallow and have clear instructions on how to take them.
Easy product to take and keep track of... Capsules are a good size and go down easily
This isn't the freshest Omega 3 supplement I've ever purchased. They come in a clear plastic container as stated in other reviews, which isn't ideal for an Omega 3 supplement as they are susceptible to oxidation when exposed to light, heat and oxygen. They smell and taste very fishy, which from my own experience only starts to occur (even in a good product) after months of being opened. Would avoid until this issue is rectified.Goes Well With:Water
I have been taking these pretty much everyday between 1-2 per day. I haven't noticed a difference in my hair and nails but im going to keep taking them as they have got to be doing something right?. The smell is really bad and its getting worse the longer I have them...when you put it on your tongue it tastes really fishy...my advice would be to have water or something in your mouth and then put the capsule in and swallow...completely gets rid of the bad taste. All in all going to carry on taking these and see how it goes!Goes Well With:Swallow with water
Noticed a real change in my hair and nails taking thease tablets, i do only take one a day and still noticed the change. I take them to keep my joints maintained when training as part of a healthy eating and excersize weight loss programme. Cons...After a month of taking them ive noticed over the last week a real fishy smell and taste coming from the pot and an after taste of fish once taken....this isnt pleasant and not had this from other branded omega 3 tablets. First thing in a morning it can be difficult to get them down without wretching. Not sure what this is?? I will certainly have to re-think getting them from here again. They are larger, but Im used to taking the bigger capsules so that doesnt bother me. If they sorted the taste id defo buy more... Goes Well With:Nothing.
Being a young athlete who trains for powerlifting, along with playing rugby. and having played a lot of sports, my joints were getting very beat up (elbows, knees and shoulders) so i decided to buy some of these. (and glucosamine sulphate) They were amazing. A mixture between these and mobility work and my joint pain has completely gone! Tip though - Keep taking them even when pain is gone or it could come back. Only con is after a while the pills become very soft and don't smell great - but who really cares?Goes Well With:Glucosamine Sulphate.
slightly large tablets and can be hard to swallow
Started taking this 3 months ago and can honestly say that since then I feel like I have more energy and no more joint pain from intense workouts, also to know im doing my heart a favour everytime I take this helps a lot.Goes Well With:Breakfast
nice smell and taste, easy to swallow
It is a good product. Easy to swallow and I'm able to take a few capsules with me for when I finish training. Ticks the boxes, all is good. Goes Well With:Can not really have this with anything as they are capsules.
Seem to help with my joints and that's saying something with my elbow
Capsules burst in tub So they all taste horrible but they still do the job.
Having Perthes of the hip joint and now a touch of artrites, when training I found that my hip was often painfull after the session. I have now been taking omega 3 now for about 3 months now I have noticed a 100% improvement in the joint. Wont say I am completely pain free but the improvement is superb.
I really like this, its helps a lot!
Omega 3's are a consistant part of my daily routine and MyProtein are my most trusted provider of these. I love the packaging and would recommend to anyone!
was running low on these and opted for the 250 pot. Not sure about their effectiveness, but i do put a lot of strain on my joints and knees because of my cycling and climbing so i take these (not as often as i should) just in case.
I don't get enough fish in my diet so I decided to get these. I brought the 250caps this should last me a while, will definitely get more when I run out from myprotein. They have really good products at good prices. Goes Well With:After a meal
Good supplement and one that evteonwn should take especly if you don't eat fish.
Been taking these for a little while now and have noticed a lot less join pain. Excellent value for money
As Omega 3 goes, these are pretty palatable and don't leave that nsty fishy tate at the back fo your throat. I've taken Omega 3 for years and haven't noticed any difference in the performance of these compared to others, but I certainly have no complaints.
I take 2 gellules morning and to before cardio or musculation. I don't feel anything. Studies don't again confirm this effectiveness but i take a few, we never know
Does what they say on the tin. No taste that i can notice.Goes Well With:Everything
Very effective and not bad tasting at all unlike other products on the market.Goes Well With:Water.
Not the best EPA/DHA percentage but for the price cant be beat. An essential for any stack whether cutting or bulking.Goes Well With:A great diet
I am very pleased with my purchase of Omega 3,my rate of fat loss increased as a result of using this product and I have also noticed that my memory has improved.Great buy,will definitely buy again and am already onto my second tub!
Highly recommended product! Relief from allergies, healthy skin and good absorption of fat.
I ordered Omega 3's after reading may different articles proving the extensive benefits of an increased intake of such essential fats, the most persuasive written by Poliquin. Once I increased my intake (6-9 grams a day) I noticed less knee aggro during long runs and a definite improvement in my Asthma, so much so, I have forgotten where my inhaler is! If unsure just Google this product and you will find masses and masses of benefits! I have taken these consistently for 12 months now and I do not intend on stopping any time soon Goes Well With:Plenty of water and a positive lifestyle.
Omega 3 is excellent value for money, this is highly recommended, with no nasty taste, smell or repeating flavour!
This Omega 3 is the best omega 3 I have ever tried!
Purchase these tablets with a view to helping my joints as I am returning to fitness after a back problem, only been taking them for 1 week and so far so good. I have been to the gym and not hurting afterwards. Will purchase again no problem,,,, I am 48 and require a little extra help in keeping fit!
Omega 3 is great value and easy to take.Goes Well With:good diet and exercise
Excellent product. Easy to take. Great Value.Goes Well With:Milk Protein smooth
Good product, the Omega 3 is a fair price, easy to swallow.
I'm currently trying this at 2 tabs per morning, enjoying it so far- feel noticeably better.
First of all I'd like to say that these are literally a life saver for me and my training! Everytime I did any overhead or shoulder exercise my rotator cuff would just mess up and I'd get a sharp uncomfortable pain and would cause me to stop training and not get a workout in at all on my shoulders and sometimes my chest! Now, where do I begin? I take 2 of these tablets with my breakfast and 2 with my dinner then train 2 hours later from my dinner, it has just 'fixed' the problem. I get no pains at all, and I can actually lift a lot more weight and lift more intensely now on chest and my shoulders, so I would like to say thanks myprotein for these tablets and for suck an amazing price. You have saved my training! Also the tablets are big but rest assured they are really easy to swallow down with water.Goes Well With:Alpha men and Vitamin D3!
I have tendonitis in my elbows and Omega 3 helps.
Omega 3 is a brilliant product! It's helped me out with all sorts of joint problems. I would recommend to anyone, whether they lift weights or not! Also, it's very cheap and doesn't leave that horrible fishy taste like I've come across with other fish oils in the past!
These omega 3 caps have a very rank smell. And I always down them with a glass of water or shake. But I must say that they do the job. I can notice a difference in joint when I take these.Goes Well With:water, shake etc.
I am taking 1-2 capsules with my meal 3 times a day for 3 weeks now and I have noticed that now I don't feel pain, stiffness in my knees and specially in lower back. Taste, Mixability and effectiveness are superb. I will definitely recommend this product for joint care.Thanks My Protein .
I've always suffered from wrist, elbow and knee pains and within a couple of weeks of using Omega 3, combined with Glucosamine Sulphate, it has improved no end. The capsules are quite large but still easy to swallow and have no real taste, except maybe a little sweetness.Goes Well With:Glucosamine Sulphate
