Cheryl Calebaugh, Manager of Operations

Omax3® Ultra-Pure™ has been shown in clinical studies to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and promote heart health.

  • Omax3 Ultra-Pure delivers more than 91% pure omega-3 content

  • Over 10 times the Omega-3 content found in Krill Oil

  • Developed by Physicians affiliated with Yale University

  • Patented 4 to 1 EPA:DHA ratio

All omega-3 supplements are not the same

Some supplements may contain more than omega-3. And some of that "extra" content you could do without, such as saturated fats, including unwanted omega-6 fatty acids, and toxins like mercury, lead, and PCBs commonly found in fish. Omax3 Ultra-Pure attains exceptional purity through a double distillation process that eliminates these additional substances. All batches are 3rd party tested twice for quality assurance.

Developed by physicians affiliated with Yale University in 2005, we possess research suggesting a significant advantage of a 4:1 ratio of EPA to DHA that allows for the optimal expression of the advantages of both EPA and DHA. This advantage has been demonstrated in pre-clinical and clinical studies across several measures of effectiveness. OMAX3® has significant potential as a mass-marketed omega-3 dietary supplement brand.  With its high concentration of omega-3 and its production using cGMP manufacturing standards, OMAX3® has the capacity to increase its market share in the omega-3 supplement marketplace. 

A significant advantage of our product is its purity and concentration of omega-3 as compared to other omega-3 products where dose response drives product effectiveness (i.e. a person is required to take substantial dosages of omega-3 to obtain its true benefits). In 2011, the American Heart Association suggested that a person ingest between 1 to 1.5 grams of omega-3 per day. Users of other over-the–counter omega-3 products would need to take substantially more tablets relative to the OMAX3® product in order to achieve a comparable level of effectiveness.
