Get to Know Icelandic Formula Omega 3

This supplement got its name from the actuality that the fish utilized in the product’s formulation is caught from Iceland’s cold and clean waters. With this the supplement asserts that by taking the product you’re also reaping the health gains of eating fish regularly, but without the unpleasant effects that come with it, like mercury and other contaminating agents. The manufacturer of Icelandic Formula Omega 3 even touts that this supplement has been clinically proven and tested to be absolutely free from mercury.

Furthermore, the supplement is said to be the sole Omega 3 fish oil that delivers the greatest potency, as well as the greatest absorption levels of EPA and DHA. As a matter of fact, its manufacturer says that it is molecularly distilled and that the pharmaceutical quality of Icelandic fish oil is equivalent to the nutritional content of 8-10 gelcaps of other Omega 3 products.

Given this, the supplement says to deliver these health gains:

Heart wellness – Decreased blood pressure, stable cholesterol levels, stable heartbeat, enhanced circulatory capacities and others.

It doesn’t show any indication that there’s a subsequent autoship program involved after you make your purchase like with other companies. However, we read on the Terms & Conditions that there’s something called a “Preferred Customer Club”, but it wasn’t elaborated on the site, so we don’t know what it precisely means.

Does Icelandic Formula Omega 3 Fare Well Among Customers?

preview-full-shutterstock_126766466This particular supplement is distributed by Viking Icelandic Fourmula. It is mainly headquartered in New York. We also found that this company is not listed with the Better Business Bureau.

Though its URL was listed back in December 2012, we couldn’t find any legit customer reviews. This is for the purpose of further gauging the supplement by reading customers’ opinions based on their experiences. In general, Omega 3 supplements are criticized for triggering side effects like stomach discomfort, poor digestion and for its ineffectiveness. Many customers say that Omega 3 supplements don’t work like their companies essentially claim. It doesn’t mean that you’ll experience the same with Icelandic Formula Omega 3, but it’s worth knowing, so that you’ll practice caution before using the said supplement.

Final Verdict: Is Icelandic Formula Omega 3 the Real Deal?

There are so many assertions made here, but can Icelandic Formula Omega 3 really deliver? Here’s our honest retort: we don’t know.

Our first issue is that even though Icelandic Formula Omega 3’s URL was listed back in 2012, there were no user feedbacks when we we’re researching. The reason could vary, which includes the manufacturer only endorsing it more recently, though we’re not certain of this as well.

Meanwhile, Omega 3 products have proliferated in quantity and have also grown prominent since getting featured on Dr. Oz’s television program back in 2010. On the said program the talk show host said that the recommended amount is 600-1,000mg of DHA/EPA daily with Icelandic Formula Omega 3 saying it gives 1,500mg of DHA and EPA each day. Hence, the said supplement seems to give the suggested dosage, in contrast with other Omega 3 products we have evaluated like Omega XL, omax3, Viva Labs Krill Oil, and Whole Body Antarctic Krill Oil.

However, the product site of Icelandic Formula Omega 3 failed to show a nutritional label and comprehensive list of components. This is a red flag since being a supplement that you consume and taken in by your body, you have to know the specific ingredients in it. After all, the reason why you’re taking a supplement is because you want to be healthier. You don’t want any health risks coming your way just because you took the wrong supplementation.

On a positive note, Icelandic Formula Omega 3 gives lifetime returns for unopened bottles, while opened ones can be returned within a 30-day period with a full money-back guarantee. This gives a sense of security and convenience to customers. It’s certainly something that many companies don’t offer. However their shipping and handling fees can be more expensive than other companies.

So, what is the bottom line in all this?

It’s great that Icelandic Formula Omega 3 has more than enough levels of DHA and EPA, as other products have lower content of these. We just find it strange that the supplement does not have customer reviews online, even though it’s URL has been registered a few years ago. The lifetime returns for unopened bottles gives users a sense of expedience and the full refund policy for opened bottles within a 30-day period seems like a good deal. But the absence of a product label and comprehensive list of ingredients is also troubling. All in all, there are both strengths and weaknesses in this supplement. But the weaknesses Icelandic Formula Omega 3 has are important factors a credible supplement must have in order to be considered worth trying.
