What is Perricone MD Omega 3?
We review Perricone MD Omega 3 to analyze its properties as a dietary supplement that is aimed at weight loss and weight maintenance. The manufacturer has formulated this blend so that customers do not have to worry about not getting enough EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) in their diets, as it has fish oil derived from Wild Alaskan Salmon to maintain metabolic and cardiovascular health, as well as hydrated skin.
- DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) – 480 mg
- EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) – 255 mg
EPA and DHA work together as essential fatty acids which are responsible for maintaining good health as DHA forms part of the framework of each cellular membrane, while EPA is constantly being demanded by the body for optimal brain function, eye health and the maintenance of healthy skin. Each of these oils has been known to support intestinal health and digestion.
We find that the concentration of EPA might be too low, we will have to consider the dosage to see if there will be an effectual amount of EPA administered.
- Purified water
- Natural lemon flavor
- Tilapia or carp fish
- Fish gelatin
We are taken aback to see Glycerin on this list as it means that the manufacturer was not considering vegans or vegetarians when they made this supplement.
For normal weight maintenance, as well as weight-loss, it is suggested that one capsule is taken with meals three times a day. As we feared, with this dosage EPA falls short of the recommended daily intake of 800 mg.
What is the Cost?
A container of 90 softgels (30 day supply) is available for direct online purchase through the manufacturer’s website at $42.00
The manufacturer will either replace or refund the product which is returned should the customer return the product within 30 days of receipt in good condition (the manufacturer does not specify if it has to be sealed or unused), including all gifts and promotional samples or products, after notifying them by email at least 14 days after purchase. The refund excludes handling and shipping costs. Products bought through third-party retailers shall not be refunded by Perricone.
Our Final Review of Perricone MD Omega 3
We like that the product excludes sugar substitutes, synthetic colors, dyes, soy and synthetic flavor, and we also like that the product derives the majority of their fish oil from Wild Alaskan salmon. However, through our research, we have managed to stumble upon negative customer reviews. We are also taken aback by the short guarantee period, as well as the lack of sufficient concentrations of EPA in their supplement blend. After careful consideration, we would definitely not recommend Perricone MD Omega 3, as we feel that it cannot compete with the 365-day money-back guarantee or sufficient concentration of fatty acids which other leading brands offer.
