What Is Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000?
Fish oil – a source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is said to have many health benefits, ranging from supporting a healthy heart and cardiovascular function, healthy brain development, healthy cognitive function, healthy vision, vibrant and youthful skin, and may even support the cellular uptake of vital nutrients.
Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000 is one of many fish oil/Omega-3 supplements currently available. This is a high-dosage formulation of the active ingredient which is said to be sourced in a sustainable way from wild fish – sardine, anchovy and mackerel – harvested in cold, pristine sea waters where there are significantly less environmental impurities in the water.
Because Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000 ingredients are molecularly distilled, it is said to contain the among the highest levels of DHA and EPA per 1000mg of fish oil; while the manufacturing method is also designed to remove impurities such as pesticides and heavy metals.
In addition, it utilizes Omega-3 fatty acids in their natural triglyceride form, rather than the more common ethyl ester variety, which is said to make the active ingredients extremely bioavailable.

Our Final Review Of – Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000
Healthy Choice Naturals Omega Naturals Fish Oil 1000 is manufactured in the United States in an FDA-compliant facility and copies with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to assure the highest levels of quality and reduce the risk of other contaminants creeping in during the manufacturing process.
While the quantity of active ingredient in these softgel capsules is high, it is not the highest we have seen. Nevertheless, because you only need to take one to two capsules per day, compared to the two to three recommended for lower dose alternatives, it makes the product more cost-effective.
We were unable to ascertain which type of gelatin is used for the softgel capsules. If this is bovine gelatin, the product might not be suitable for vegetarians.
The manufacturer also doesn’t indicate whether there is anything special in the formulation or manufacturing process to reduce the most common – and uncomfortable – side effects associated with taking fish oil/Omega-3 supplements: smelly breath and fishy aftertaste (fish burp). This indicates that you might well be at risk of these embarrassing conditions – although taking the softgels with meals could go some way to reducing the risk.
