Nature's Way EFA Gold Mega Blend ~ Complete Omega 3 Supplement

Pros:Balanced and complete source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Non-GMO, PCB and mercury free.

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: Balanced and complete source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Quality ingredients, and PCB and mercury free.


I'm not in the habit of taking tons of supplements, but one thing I take daily is an Omega 3 fatty acid supplement. The one I seem to come back to is Nature's Way EFA Gold Mega Blend because it offers a complete, balanced source of fatty acids.

~ Product Description

Taken from the bottle: "Mega EFA Blend is the most complete daily source of Omega-3/6/9 fatty acids for healthy skin, joints, and cardiovascular function. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."

Nature's Way EFA Gold Mega Blend contains a 3:1 ratio Omega-3 to Omega-6. It has a rich Omega-9 potency with extra virgin olive oil. It has cold pressed/hexane-free flax and borage oils, and molecularly distilled, mercury/PCB-free premium fish oil.

This supplement comes in a dark opaque plastic bottle with a screw-off, non-childproof cap. You can buy it in bottles of 90 softgels, or 180 softgels. The 180 bottles sells for around $20 or so.

The recommended dosage is 3 softgels a day. These have a "lime flavor", but it's not like you're chewing them, you swallow them whole, so i don't get the reason for a flavor, nor am I able to notice any flavor when I take these.

~ Supplement Facts

A serving of 3 softgels contains the following:

Calories - 40
Calories from fat - 35
Total fat - 4g
Cholesterol - 5mg
Protein - 1g
Vitamin E - 30 IU
Omega-3 fatty acids - 1.5g
Alpha-Linolenic Acid - 890mg
Elcosapentaenoic Acid - 340mg
Docosahexaenoic Acid - 225mg
Omega-9 fatty acids as Oleic Acid - 500mg
Omega-6 fatty acids - 484mg
Linoleic Acid - 284mg
Gamma-Linolenic Acid - 200mg

Ingredients: Organic Flax Oil (seed), Fish Oil (sardine, anchovy), Borage Oil (seed), Extra Virgin Olive Oil (fruit), gelatin (softgel), glycerin, purified water, natural lime flavor.

~ My Experience

The softgel caps are pretty large. I sometimes have trouble swallowing large pills, but somehow these go down well, even with their big size, I suppose because they are very smooth and oval shaped. The caps are clear and you can see the golden colored oils within.

I've been taking Omega 3 supplements for sometime, and using Nature's Way EFA Gold Mega Blend for several months. I must confess I don't always take the full 3 softgels a day, but always at least one. I usually take them in the morning with my breakfast. I've never noticed any nausea, or burping, or bad taste after taking these.

Have I noticed any difference in my health from taking these? That's hard to say. As I mentioned, I've been using Omega-3 supplements for a couple of years at least, and all I can tell you is I workout extremely hard, I box and spar, train like a champ, and I feel great. I have amazing endurance and cardio capacity. If I stopped taking them I suppose I might find out if there's a difference, but I don't want to change my routine because it's working so well for me.

~ Final Thoughts

Nature's Way EFA Gold Mega Blend is a high potency, well balanced Omega-3 supplement for a decent price. Next time you're shopping for Omega-3 supplements, take a look and give 'em a try.
