Customer Reviews

This is a great book for the lay reader.
Daniel E. Hofford
There are explanations of the relationship between omega-3's and emotional well-being, as well as how they improve mental abilities.

He says that cheaper fish oils don't filter out chemicals, toxins, etc.

This book gives a complete and easy to understand of the complex way in which the EPA&DHA long-chain fatty acids influence the hormonal system, and how their lack in the diet affects the body. The author explains why eating fish is not the best way to get omega-3's, mainly because of the heavy chemicals that fish accumulate in their tissues. He describes the differences between different types of fish oil and why (in his opinion) pharmaceutical-grade fish oil is the best way to supplement omega-3. He explains which blood test will tell you how healthy you are.

There is also a very interesting hypothesis on how a diet rich in omega-3 helped the development of the human brain in its early stages of evolution.

There are detalied explanations of how diseases such as cancer and auto-immune illnesses are related to long-chain omega-3's. The author explains how "silent" (cell) inflammation is the cause of many (if not most) major diseases today, especially chronic conditions.

There are explanations of the relationship between omega-3's and emotional well-being, as well as how they improve mental abilities.

As a sidenote, apparently there is currently only one brand on the market that satisfies the author's standards. They have a comparison table on their website showing how their brand offers the most omega-3 per dollar (to convince that it is worth the high price)--but they only compare with certain brands--and I know of at least another highly respected fish oil brand that offers even more omega-3's for half the price. So the only argument left is that pharmaceutical-grade fish oil is completely free of contaminants, whereas other types of oil are not.

I was doubtful about the claims I've heard regarding Omega-3, then after trying everything from meds to therapy for depression and losing hope anything would ever help I decided to learn more about Omega3. I am finally feeling better and am a believer! If you've read Sears book, I found The Omega-3 Connection offered even more mind blowing/informative facts on the affects of eating our now Omega3 depleted food because of all the chemical alterations and genetic enhancements it undergoes and the affects it has on the brain.

The grade, source, manufacturing, and ratio of EPA to DHA make all the difference in quality. I don't believe Dr Sears is simply promoting his product as much as this is a newly pioneered area and like all first productions ... production & quality improve as we learn more about benefits and Sears is trying to convey this important fact and has produced a supplement that is of a purer resource (fish from less poluted areas) & follows a higher standard of production (removes more than required environmental pollutants) to ensure its quality and its effectiveness.

Helpful Hint: Don't be fooled by claims of 250mg - 1200mg per capsule (can simply mean its a bigger pill). To compare the amounts of Omega3 per capsule, you need to find the highest concentrate per capsule (less pills to swallow) by dividing the mg amount of EPA/DHA by the number of capsules per serving. A good source is [...], 90% concentration, virtually tasteless, pharmaceutical grade, and inexpensive.

edit 9/10: I'm still an Omega 3 believer but have switched products. Had gotten acid reflux and it started tasting fishy and quit taking for a bit. Acid reflux is gone but stomach is sensitive, so I've switched to Andrew Lessman's line and am very happy. Since entering 40s, I swear its helping with hormones too. I've become allergic to progesterone and symptoms are less when I remember to take fish oil (I double up) and vitamins daily.

You may be skeptical, but try the new high dose fish oil and see for yourself life-saving truley remarkable results. With bad genes, resulting in heart disease, diabetes, obesity, gout, chronic rashes, kidney stones, impotance and neuropathy, I thought my life was over. Believe me, my quality of life has improved fifty-fold! The gout is gone. The rashes are gone. Blood sugar is under remarkable control. My HDL which was never more than 32 is now 86. My triglyceride/HDL ratio is now a perfect 1:1. But most importantly for me the impotance and neuropathy are gone and I feel like living again! Thank You Dr. Sears, sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, for revealing this miracle.
As a practical matter, the only omega 3 fish oil that is actually stronger than that from Searslabs is called "TwinEpa" from TwinLab. Whereas the SearsLabs capsules contain not less than a total of 600 Mg of Omega 3 (400 Mg of EPA + 200 Mg of DHA) per capsule, the TwinEpa capsules from Twinlab contain not less than a total of 840 Mg of Omega 3 (600 Mg of EPA + 240 Mg of DHA) per capsule.
The potential cost savings per gram of long-chain omega-3 is a whopping 41%, provided you purchase via the internet and buy at the maximum discount.

I have survived a most certain terminal cancer. In fact the MD Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston Texas, says that I'm the only one to have survived in the whole world.

But, as an aftermath, I have severe chronic pain because my brain has rewired itself due to the horrible pain I went through fighting the cancer. The condition is referred to as the Gate Theory. It now can be seen on MRI's. It took me 6-months to find the right doctor to treat it. He's been a pain specialist for 17 years and belongs to a group of doctors who rely on "MD Evidenced Nutrition" to understand what "natural" things work.

He put me on a heavy dose of Morphine to counter the pain, but he also put me on Fish Oil, not just any fish oil, but the oil referred to in this book, and I started thinking better and have taken on some minor work as a result. It's almost been a miracle.

Long_chain-fatty-acid-3, pharmaceutical grade, has done wonders. Because of this book I now understand why.

Many doctors assisted Dr. Sears in the writing of this book so that civilians, like me, can understand it. It's not a "fad" book at all. Just look in the back and you will see over 100 pages of clinical references backing up what Dr. Sears states in the book.

It's a must have to stay well and a must have to survive a serious illness.
