Lion Heart Omega 3

$42.75

Lion Heart capsules contain incredible fish oil, with super high levels of EPA & DHA and no heavy metals or other nasties.

 

They’re made with fish gelatin and nothing else added. We think it’s just wrong to put fish oil in a beef or pork gelatin capsule, and you don’t need to add flavour because you don’t taste them.

 

Simple & unadulterated fish oil.

Product Description

Our fish oils have the highest concentration of EPA & DHA available, which means they’re effective, efficient & fast working

To feel the benefits of Omega 3, and to feel them quickly, we need to take much higher amounts than those offered by regular supplements. For example, the recommended daily dose for normal blood pressure is 3,000mg per day of EPA & DHA. A well known, average priced, 1,000mg capsule contains 107mg of EPA/DHA so you’d need 28 of them to get this dose. Or, you could take one teaspoon a day of Lion Heart.

A single 1ml drop of Super Hero gives a child the same amount of Omega 3, and importantly DHA, as a whole tin of sardines (with bones!). There isn’t a single other supplement that comes close to that.

As a result of the strength (and digestibility), many of our customers report feeling the benefits, or noticing them in their children, soon after starting to take our supplements and say they’d never consider any other brand now.

Our purity is unrivalled as the only UK brand certified by The International Fish Oil Standards programme with no heavy metals or contaminants

Sadly, there are growing concerns about consuming too much fresh fish with high levels of heavy metals and environmental contaminants. In some cases, pregnant women are advised to avoid certain species completely. We therefore need to be very careful about which supplements we take, as these too can have unwanted nasties.

IFOS is an independent laboratory in Canada that tests every single batch of the finished, bottled product based on strict standards set by The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) and The World Health Organization (WHO). Well known in the U.S.A and Canada, we’re the first and only British brand to enter the programme. Why did we join?

There’s no regulation restricting use of the term ‘pharmaceutical grade’ or words like ‘pure’, and companies are not required to show their certificates of analysis (tests which manufacturers carry out to establish Omega 3 content, levels of toxins, heavy metals and other nasties). Only a handful publish these, we’re one of them. You can read them here.

Here’s what they test:

Stability & freshness

How fresh the oil is and how much oxidation has occurred during bottling. Fats are extremely volatile and spoil quickly – the dreaded fishy burps and aftertaste that can be experienced usually result from fish oil that has turned rancid. This isn’t just unpleasant but oxidized fats can cause damage to our arteries, the exact opposite effect for which we take the supplement in the first place.

Our products pass all the tests with flying colours, receiving the top 5 star rating and you can read our consumer reports at IFOS here.

Our oil’s in the natural triglyceride form, shown in studies to be up to 70%* more absorbable due to the way our bodies digest it

Ethyl Ester (EE for short) is the most common form of fish oil supplement. If a product doesn’t state clearly that it’s in TG (triglyceride) form then it probably isn’t. Why? Because it’s a much more expensive and technically challenging process.

The geeky bit

A triglyceride is the natural molecular structure of most fats and oils, made of three fatty acids (such as EPA & DHA in fish) bound to a backbone of glycerol.

The process of concentrating EPA & DHA requires the fatty acids to be ‘freed’ from the glycerol by replacing it with Ethanol (a type of alcohol). Once completed, the oil can then be reconverted into a TG by removing the ethanol and adding special enzymes that re-bind the fatty acids to a glycerol backbone. Known as trans-esterifying – this is the tricky and expensive part. Ethyl Esters are synthetic fats that don’t naturally occur in our diets, some countries like Australia have gone so far as banning them.

We only use small fish which are naturally less contaminated

Most Omega 3 supplements use large fish, like salmon, tuna or cod, which are among the most polluted. We only use wild sardine, anchovy and mackerel that live in clean waters in the deep southern Pacific Ocean. They’re naturally high in Omega 3 and lower in environmental toxins because they’re small and don’t eat other large contaminated fish. They also have a short life span so less time to build up pollutants in their bodies.

It tastes amazing, seriously! That’s because it’s super fresh and has been carefully handled

Our oil is spankingly fresh and doesn’t have any after-taste. The main flavour is a subtle Sicilian lemon and because the oil’s thin, it clears as soon as you drink or eat something. It never lingers or comes back. If you don’t like the thought of fish oil, you’ll be amazed – even our children, the fussiest ones alive, genuinely like it!

Capsules and fish oils that repeat on you are not only unpleasant, they most probably contain rancid fish oil that has oxidized during processing.

Our technology and maximum levels of quality control ensure that we never have this problem. Freshness is also something that IFOS test so we can guarantee our oil’s not rancid.

You don’t have to take our word for it, see what others are saying about it.

As long as you keep it in the fridge with the cap on, minimizing exposure to oxygen and light, it will stay fresh while you finish the bottle.

We care about and value the fish, sourcing only from Friends of the Sea certified suppliers

Our manufacturer is certified by Friends of the Sea (FOS) and International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisation Responsible Supply (IFFO-RS). All fish are sourced in line with international standards and the oil’s extracted under strict EU regulations.

Dosage

We recommend a daily dose of 4 x 500mg capsules containing 1,460mg Omega 3 with 860mg EPA & 440mg DHA, an excellent daily maintenance amount equivalent to a whole tin of sardines. Each pot contains 120 capsules & will last you for one month if you take 4 a day. One tiny capsule contains 3 times more EPA & DHA than a leading brand 1,000mg capsule (the big ones you can’t swallow!).

Perfect for taking on your travels, keeping in your desk or for those that don’t want a liquid. They’re very small so they’re easy to take, in the natural triglyceride form for easy digestion and maximum absorption, and guaranteed to never repeat on you because they’re super fresh (oxidized fish oil repeats on you, not pleasant).

Notes of caution:

We recommend you consult a doctor if you:

Have any health concerns or serious medical conditions.
Take regular medication such as blood thinners
Are about to have surgery.
