A year ago tomorrow, I walked into a bookstore in desperation and bought all the books on nutrition I could find that made sense to me. Within days, I exchanged most of them for the Zone books. Within 2 weeks of practicising the Zone haphazardly, I got spectacular results on my blood cholesterol test, the first encouraging results in five years. I have continued in the "Zone lifestyle" faithfully while reading perhaps 70 nutrition and exercise books in the meantime.
The OmegaRxZone represents the most recent in the series of Zone books, containing the most up-to-date information on Dr. Sears' dietary technology. It might be called, the "Zone with emphasis on pharmaceutical grade fish oil and recovery from illness."
Pharmaceutical grade fish oil can be taken in bigger quantities than health store grade fish oil. There is now an EPA/AA test (see yourfuturehealth.com) for $260 that can show whether bigger quantities of fish oil can help your health condition.
Dr. Sears has taken criticism from those who say they are completely healthy already. They argue that his assertions about the role of EPA and DHA in preserving health are unproven. Meanwhile, many desperately sick people have regained their health and think otherwise. The August 2003 newsletter on drsears.com contains one such testimonial from a fitness instructor.
Dr. Sears apparently sees his role as a standard setter. In the year since the publication of the OmegaRxZone, other pharmaceutical grade fish oils besides his own have come out at lower prices. If he were truly mercenary, he would have maintained his affiliation with the ZonePerfect company. He parted ways with them several years ago because he wanted to upgrade the quality of Zone bars.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.
