Triple strength OMEGA STRONG is dealt for advanced athletes and workout enthusiasts.
Its purity and potency helps you maximize recovery and support a healthy inflammatory response to training, as well as support improved cardiovascular health and physical performance.
OMEGA STRONG IS POTENT:
OMEGA STRONG is three times as concentrated in omega-3 fatty acids as traditional fish oil supplements. Each serving (two soft gel capsules) contains an equivalent amount of omega-3s as an average serving of wild cooked salmon.
OMEGA STRONG IS PURE AND FRESH:
OMEGA STRONG is made using a multi-stop process involving high-vacuum molecular distillation. This process both concentrates the fish oil and effectively removes impurities. OMEGA STRONG is tested by an independent laboratory to ensure that it is potent, pure and fresh. The soft gel capsules bear no fishy smell. OMEGA STRONG meets or exceeds purity standards set by the World Health Organization and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED).
Supports Recovery From Physical Activity
Supports Healthy Inflammatory Response To Training
Enhances Cardiovascular Health & Performance
Virtually No Fishy Smell, Taste or “Fish Burps”
New OMEGA STRONG from MHP is ideal for advanced athletes and workout enthusiasts. That’s because its potency, purity and freshness – all confirmed by independent laboratory testing – helps support faster recovery from training and help reduce exercise induced minor joint pain and inflammation. OMEGA STRONG also supports cardiovascular health and overall performance.
The health benefits of fish oil have been the focus of an estimated 16,000 studies to date. The benefits are attributed to its content of the omega-3 fatty acids and more specifically the omega-3s known as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), sometimes referred to as the “fats of life”.
Athletes may require even more EPA and DHA
Every athlete and serious workout enthusiast wants to protect and enhance their cardiovascular health and performance. However, controlling minor exercise-induced inflammation is always a concern. Indeed, no athlete would deny that chronic heavy training takes a toll on their body, including but not limited to their muscle,tendons and joints. This can significantly impair your ability to perform and recover.
It is typically recommended that persons consuming 1,000-3,000 milligrams (mg) of EPA + DHA each day in order to counteract exercise-induced inflammation and support overall health. Achieving this from the diet alone would require that most North Americans make a dramatic increase in their consumption of oily fish. For instance, to achieve a daily intake of 2000 mg of EPA + DHA, you would have to eat approximately:
2 servings of canned albacore tuna every day or
2 servings of sardines every day or
Nearly 85 g (3 oz) of fresh salmon every day
The typical North American diet is lacking in EPA and DHA, and the human body just isn’t equipped to make enough of them on its own, making omega-3 supplementation an important part of your diet to meet the need for these health promoting compounds. OMEGA STRONG will help you fill the gaps and obtain the many benefits of increased EPA and DHA intake.
Fill the gaps with Omega Strong
A sophisticated, multi-step process is used to make OMEGA STRONG more than 3 times as concentrated in omega-3s as wild salmon.*
One serving of OMEGA STRONG supplies 1450 mg of EPA + DHA and is equivalent to approximately 2.8 oz of wild cooked salmon.
Athletes have been recommended to consume 1000-2000 mg of EPA + DHA daily to help regulate exercise-induced inflammation and promote overall health and performance. This can easily be accomplished by taking 1.5 servings of OMEGA STRONG daily. OMEGA STRONG, when used as directed, can support an athlete’s health and performance.
As components of every cell in the human body, EPA and DHA impact your health, growth and well-being.
DHA is the most abundant structural fatty acid in the brain, where it plays critical roles in cognitive performance.
DHA is the building block of choice for the production of cell membranes, particularly in highly active tissues such as nerve and muscle.
EPA and DHA affect cardiovascular health and performance, such as maintaining normal, healthy blood pressure and blood clotting, and the metabolism (e.g. burning) of fat
*Per unit weight of lipid.
Why not just get Omega-3s from the diet?
The bulk of your nutritional needs should of course be satisfied by your diet. Unfortunately, and as discussed in more detail below, the typical North American diet does not supply enough EPA and DHA. Further, your body’s ability to synthesize (manufacture) these omega-3s is very limited. Dietary supply of these omega-3s may not be sufficient to support optimal recovery from training and maximize your overall health and performance. To get a better understanding of the nature of this challenge, it will help to briefly discuss what a fatty acid is
Fatty Acid basics
Fatty acids are the principal building blocks of fat. We often think of fat as a “bad” thing, such as the kind of fat that accumulates around your waist or hips. But there are also healthy kinds of fat, perhaps the best example of which is the omega-3s.
Structurally, a fatty acid consists of carbon atoms linked together in a chain. Each carbon atom can be thought of as having four “hands.” Most of the carbon atoms in the chain hold onto neighboring carbons, one with each hand. The other two hands of the carbon usually hold onto hydrogen atoms – again, one with each hand. Sometimes, however, these two hands hold onto one another to form a double bond.
A fatty acid that contains a double bond is said to be unsaturated. This is because it isn’t holding onto as many hydrogen atoms as it otherwise could. (Conversely, a fatty acid that holds onto as many hydrogen atoms as it can is said to be saturated.) Omega-3 fatty acids are said to be polyunsaturated because they contain more than one double bond in their carbon chain (“poly” equals “more than one”).
A fatty acid consists of a chain of carbon atoms linked together.
Omega-3 fatty acids are also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) because they contain more than one double bond along their carbon chain
WHY IS SUPPLEMENTING WITH OMEGA STRONG SO IMPORTANT?
Reason #1: Your body doesn’t make enough EPA and DHA
Mother Nature has given the human body some remarkable capabilities. However, synthesizing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) from scratch isn’t one of them. An example is the omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Because your body can’t synthesize ALA, it must be supplied by the diet. That’s why it is classified as an essential fatty acid (EFA).
Your body can convert ALA into eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). These omega-3s are believed to be responsible for the numerous health benefits of fish oil. But there’s a catch. Most of us don’t consume much ALA, largely because we don’t eat enough fresh plant foods, especially the leafy green vegetables that are rich sources of ALA.
Americans have been estimated to get only about 7% of their calories from PUFAs. Of this, only perhaps one tenth (1/10th) is ALA. That’s well under 1% of the average overall caloric intake. In stark contrast, nearly 90% of our PUFA intake has been estimated to come from omega-6 fatty acids. This is important because omega-6s can “compete” with omega-3s in the body, and may even “cancel out” some of the health benefits provided by the latter. Many North Americans consume 10-20 times as much omega-6s as omega-3s, which is an unhealthy ratio. (Note: OMEGA STRONG contains no measurable amount of omega-6s.)
Essentially what this means is that you can consume large amounts of flax seed or other ALA-rich foods or supplements and yet never achieve the tissue levels of EPA and DHA believed to be necessary to provide most health benefits.
Humans cannot synthesize the omega-3 known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). It must therefore be supplied by the diet and for this reason is considered an essential fatty acid (EFA).
Humans cannot synthesize EPA and DHA from scratch. They can synthesize EPA and DHA from ALA, but this ability is very limited, even when ALA is in good supply. Men are especially poor converters.
Most of us consume too many omega-6s. When consumed in excess, omega-6s “cancel out” some of the health benefits of omega-3s.
Reason #2: Most diets don’t provide enough EPA and DHA.
To this point, you’ve learned that your body can make EPA and DHA, but only to a very limited extent, too little to rely on for maximum health and performance. This is true even when there is plenty of ALA in your diet.
The solution, it would seem, is to eat more EPA and DHA. The most widely available food source of these omega-3s is cold-water oily fish. Guess what? As stated earlier, most of us don’t eat enough oily fish. In one study, only a third of subjects reported eating at least one meal of oily fish per week.
A Simple Solution: OMEGA STRONG
Considering that many individuals don’t eat any cold-water fish, these are big dietary changes. Alternatively, you could simply consume 3 softgel capsules of OMEGA STRONG daily, which provides 2175 mg of EPA + DHA. As an added plus, OMEGA STRONG doesn’t have that strong fish smell like many other fish oil supplements do.
The most widely available source of EPA and DHA in the diet is cold-water oily fish. However, most North Americans don’t eat enough fish.
Experts recommend consuming 1000 mg of EPA + DHA daily to protect cardiovascular health.
Athletes are recommended to ingest 1,000-2,000 mg of EPA + DHA daily to help regulate exercise-induced inflammation and promote overall health and performance.
For most individuals, achieving the amount of EPA + DHA recommended for athletes from the diet alone would require a dramatic increase in fish consumption.
OMEGA STRONG provides a much more convenient option. Taking 3 softgel capsules daily supplies 2175 mg of EPA + DHA.
Why is OMEGA STRONG so pure and potent?
The production of OMEGA STRONG begins with cold-water fish that are naturally rich in oil containing EPA and DHA
Oil extracted from the fish is taken through a sophisticated multi-step process that involves high-vacuum molecular distillation (HVMD). HVMD gently and quickly processes the fish oil, making it purer and more potent while protecting the integrity of the fragile omega-3s.
OMEGA STRONG is a Super-Potent Concentrate
During processing, the level of EPA and DHA in OMEGA STRONG fish oil reaches values approximately 3 times higher than occurs in fresh salmon (per gram of lipid). Technically speaking, this makes Omega Strong a potent “concentrate.” Tests are routinely performed by an independent laboratory to confirm that it is pure, potent and fresh. The freshness of Omega Strong is also evident in the fact that its softgel capsules bear virtually no fishy smell when manufactured.
The United States federal government does not have fish oil standards. But MHP does. In particular, it uses those set by the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED). Testing confirms that OMEGA STRONG meets or exceeds GOED standards.

How to use OMEGA STRONG
√ Dosage: As discussed above, athletes are recommended to take 1000-2000 mg of EPA + DHA daily. This can easily be achieved by taking 2-3 softgel capsules of OMEGA STRONG daily. This dosage also provides more than enough EPA + DHA for protection of cardiovascular health, based on expert recommendations.
√ Take it with meals: The absorption of omega-3s is likely to be enhanced when food is in the stomach, particularly if it contains some fat.
√ Be consistent: It is important to take OMEGA STRONG consistently. This is the secret to results. Every day dosing is best. It takes time for omega-3s to accumulate in your cells and tissues and exert their beneficial effects. Two to three months of consistent supplementation may be necessary before improvements are noticed.
√ Store it properly: Close the lid firmly after use and store OMEGA STRONG in a cool, dry place, away from light. Omega-3s are fragile. The same chemical structure that allows them to provide health benefits also makes them sensitive to environmental factors including heat, light, air, metals, water and enzymes.
