    A Review of Animal Omega


    First of all... thanks Universal Rep for hooking me up with a free can of this stuff... by which I'm deeply impressed. I was a little worried about the soft gels at first because in the past the texture of them has made me throw-up. These, however, go down nicely, due to the fact that they have a quality gel coating, again, unlike many other soft gel supplements. To tell you the truth, these soft gels wash down easier than tablets or even capsules. So in that sense... I'm impressed. Another thing that impresses me is the completeness of Animal Omega. I'll get my can out right now and read what it says... OK, for your omega 3s it's got flaxseed oil, salmon oil, cod liver oil, herring oil, anchovy oil, mackerel oil, sardine oil... what fish oil doesn't it have? On top of that, for your omega 6s it's got borage oil, safflower oil, evening primrose oil, and sesamin. It even has it's own absorbtion complex consisting of lechithin (soy), L-carnitine, and lipase enzyme. Then you get a decent (around the 50% DV range) amount of vitamin A, D, and E. All of this with only 1g of saturated fat. What's more? Animal Omega contains the precise ratio you need. I was reading online about the ratio of omega 3 to 6 that you need and then was worried that Animal didn't have that... so I checked the can and sure enough it says "each pak contains a precise, pre-dosed ratio." Pretty awesome. I mean it's like they say... Omegas are essential. Without them you can't even live. Oh yeah, did I mention the convenience of it? Just pop 1 pack a day, containing 7 soft gels and 1 capsule, with any meal and all of your EFA bases are covered... ALL OF THEM! And no fish burps either, LOL. Here... I'll post the supplement facts.

    What's In It?

    ** Daily Value (DV) not established
    Other Ingredients:
    Gelatin, Glycerin, Purified Water, Caramel Color. This Product Contains Fish.

    Directions: Use Animal Omega as you would your regular essential fatty acid (EFA) supplement. If this is your first time, take Animal Omega with a meal and you're good to go. Use a pack or two daily, as you need it. Generally, a single pack will do fine for most. Elite athletes can consider doubling up the serving.

    P.S. Animal cans just plain look awesome... so if for nothing else, you owe it to yourself to pick one of these bad-boys up, LOL.

    Thanks brother. What I especially like--other than the completeness--is the use of molecularly distilled oils and no fish burps.

    seems like a solid supp, and regarding the cans, I save them, slice a line in the top to make a bank, fill it with spare change which I then use to buy more supps.

    The biggest is natural has no added sugars. All the peanut oil in natty PB is natural and has no addiditives or preservatives. Its just plain old peanuts grinded down to PB.

    If you compare the labels, look for Partially Hydrogenated Oils. This is the biggest difference in Natural vs. Regular PB. Natural peanut butters do not contain partially hydrogenated oils, a.k.a Trans Fat.

    You have to look in the ingredient list for it, because if you look at the label to see the percentage of Trans Fat in regular peanut butter you will see 0. The reason is that the FDA proposed a rule that indicated that trans fat amounts of less than .5g cannot be accurately measured and will be listed on the label as 0. Personally I think that is misleading and bull**** if you ask me. I don't care how insignificant it might be, consumers should see a percentage regardless, because most consumers don't read the ingredient labels, and wouldn't know that partially hydrogenated oils is Trans Fat.

    So, hypothetically what if I wanted to eat half a jar of peanut butter because the label says Trans Fat 0? Now, I got a whole lot of insignificant Trans Fat that adds up to more than significant, lol.

    So, typically regular peanut buter contains less then 1% of trans fat, which helps keep the oil from seperating, makes it creamer, and dramatically increases the shelf life.
