Know Your Omegas: Choosing the Right Support for Your Health Needs

If you’ve ever consulted with a Dietitian or researched healthy eating practices, you probably know that sufficient Omega-3 levels is a pillar of maintaining whole-body health.* There are many food sources that can raise your Omega-3 levels, but it can be tough to get sufficient levels solely from your diet. We know that research gets results, so we’ve put careful time and energy into developing high-quality and transparent Omega products with no unnecessary ingredients. Below is a detailed guide so you can decide which Omega supplement is right for you. 


Omega-3 Fish Oil

Each Sports Research® Omega-3 softgel contains 1250 mg of AlaskOmega®  Fish Oil sourced from cold water, wild-caught Alaskan Pollock (not from farm-raised fish). Unlike other fish oil pills, we concentrate our pharmaceutical grade fish oil without the use of high heat to ensure low oil oxidation levels. What exactly does that mean? Ultra-concentrated levels of EPA & DHA ensuring triple strength support for your brain, heart and immune health.*

You can get the purity you want from a fish oil supplement, without the fishy aftertaste or burps!

If you’re looking for a once-a-day, sustainably sourced and high quality fish oil - this essential would look great in your shopping cart.


Krill Oil

SR® Krill Oil is made with Superba 2®, which holds the highest concentration of astaxanthin, choline, and phospholipids. You can read a breakdown of each of these components here.

 

These Omega-3 Fatty Acids are considered to be more bioavailable, as they are bound to naturally occuring phospholipids, thus allowing for better absorption and better delivery of benefits to your heart and entire body.* 

 

Our Krill is eco-friendly and sustainable. Our suppliers utilize proprietary fishing technology that limits and reduces environmental impact. The Krill is sourced from the pristine Antarctic Ocean, where they are the biggest and most nutrient dense in the world. 

 

If high quality support, eco-conscious products speak highly to you- this could be your effective solution.


Vegan Omega-3

Our Vegan Omega-3 is derived from plant-based algae oil. It is Certified Vegan, Non-GMO tested and Gluten-Free. You don’t have to worry about getting enough of your omegas because two softgels provide 630 mg of DHA + EPA per serving. No fishy aftertaste or burps because there’s no fish here! An Omega supplement with no animals, no fishy aftertaste or burps and no gluten?! What a time to be alive.


If you follow a plant-based or vegan-friendly diet and want to keep your health in check, SR® Vegan Omega is here to provide support.

Total Omega

The Alpha of Omegas. Our Total Omega contains a full spectrum blend of EPA & DHA in the Triglyceride, Phospholipid and Wax Ester forms. This nutrient-dense formula includes omega-rich oils from Alaskan Pollock, Krill, Norwegian Calanus, and Wild Alaskan Salmon. SR® Total Omega is sustainably sourced so you can be confident your omegas are coming from a nutrient dense, pure source. 

If you’re looking for support that covers all the bases, this is a must-try.


Keto Omega

Sports Research® Keto Omega contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids with Krill-derived phospholipids and Astaxanthin. If you’ve made it this far in our Omega guide, you know that Krill-derived phospholipids are tightly bound to Omega-3 Fatty acids and are essential for all-around body health. Astaxanthin protects the Omega-3 phospholipid and delivers antioxidant benefits.*

 

Keto Omega also includes brain and body supportive MCT Oil.* If you are keto-friendly or following a low-carb lifestyle, this is a must-have in your supplement cabinet.


Flaxseed Oil

Our Flaxseed Oil softgels are a rich source of the plant-based Omega-3 essential fatty acid ALA. In the body, ALA can be converted into EPA and DHA. Each softgel includes 1200 mg of cold-pressed flaxseeds oil. SR® Flaxseed Oil is Vegan Certified and Gluten-free. 

 

If you’re looking for ALA to add to your EPA/DHA regimen, our Flaxseed Oil can enrich your routine.
