Ultra Omega-3

Ultra™ Fish Oils is a range of pharmaceutical grade fish oils designed to meet the highest quality and purity standards appealing to those who are looking for the best marine oils available. NEW Ultra™ Fish Oils capsules are high in strength, with over 60% Omega-3 fatty acids. As with all products in the Ultra™ Fish Oils range, it is produced in Norway to the highest purity standards.

Ultra™ Fish Oils provides a rich source of the essential fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) to help maintain health and wellbeing:

EPA and DHA are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made efficiently by the body and must be obtained through the diet. DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision¹ and brain function¹. Both DHA & EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart²

Ultra™ Omega-3 capsules contain vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and helps to protect the high purity oil.

The unique Opti-pure™ multiple distillation process for a purity you can trust.

Vitabiotics products are renowned for their high quality. Ultra™ Omega-3 undergoes a unique Opti-Pure™ purification process, including multiple distillation and extra filtration stages, to ensure the highest purity oil. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants. Ultra™ Omega-3 premium grade oils are produced in Norway, guaranteeing the highest standards of quality.

From Sustainable Fisheries

Ultra™ Omega-3 Fish Oil only comes from sustainable fisheries in highly regulated clean sea environments, using wild fish varieties which are not endangered. Fishing never occurs in peak spawning seasons. Ultra™ Omega-3 is dolphin friendly, and approved fishing methods ensure a minimum fish size so that smaller, younger fish may escape.

  • No artificial colours
  • No preservatives (enriched with natural vitamin E)
  • To help prevent any aftertaste, Ultra™ Omega-3 capsules have pioneered an orange flavoured odourmask™ shell
  • No sugar (Unlike sugar loaded fish oil syrups which are readily available on the market)

Ultra Omega-3 FAQ

Why has Ultra™ Fish Oils been developed?

Ultra™ Fish Oils is a range of fish oils designed to meet the highest quality standards required by Vitabiotic customers. These high-grade oils provide rich sources of the essential fatty acids, DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) to help maintain all round wellbeing. DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and brain function . DHA & EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart .[Top]

What are Omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids?

Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids because they cannot be made by the body efficiently and therefore must be obtained from the diet. These beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish. Eating a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids or by taking a supplement such as Vitabiotics' Ultra™ Omega-3, may help to safeguard the body’s requirement for Omega-3 fatty acids.[Top]

Why not just eat plenty of oily fish?

Including oily fish in your diet, at least two portions a week is an important part of a well-balanced diet, and recommended by Government health officials. However concerns have been raised over the level of contaminants in some fish resulting from environmental pollution including heavy metals e.g. mercury as well as dioxins and PCB's (polychlorinated biphenyls).[Top]

How do you make Ultra™ Fish Oils so pure?

The fish used to produce Ultra™ Fish Oils are sourced from Norway and only come from sustainable fisheries in highly regulated clean sea environments where contaminants in fish are at their lowest. Each batch of fish oil used in Ultra™ Fish Oils goes through the Opti-Pure™ purification process to ensure the oil is carefully refined and filtered.[Top]

When are Ultra™ Fish Oils recommended?

Ultra™ Fish Oils are recommended for men, women and children as a nutritional safeguard. A general decline in oily fish consumption among the population means that most individuals would be advised to take a fish oil supplement to help support their health. The Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins in Ultra™ Fish Oils are particularly helpful for individuals with concerns about their heart, brain and vision.[Top]

Can Ultra™ Fish Oils be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding?

During pregnancy, we recommend supplements specially formulated for this time, such as Vitabiotics’ Pregnacare® Plus - the original formula Pregnacare® tablets containing a careful combination of 19 vitamins and minerals, along with a specially formulated Omega-3 capsule for pregnancy (with 300mg DHA), designed for use from before conception, throughout pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding.[Top]

How many capsules does one pack of Ultra™ Omega-3 capsules contain?

Ultra™ Omega-3 capsules contains 60 capsules per pack. 2 capsules are recommended per day.[Top]

How and when should Ultra™ Fish Oils be taken?

Two capsules per day are recommended with a meal and a drink such as milk or orange juice to optimise absorption. To help prevent any aftertaste, Ultra™ Omega-3 capsules incorporate an orange flavoured odourmask™ shell. Do not exceed the recommended intake.[Top]

How should I store Ultra™ Omega-3?

The capsules are best stored at or below 25°C, protected from sunlight and direct heat. Keep out of sight and reach of children.[Top]

How long does it take to experience any benefits?

Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of Ultra™ Fish Oils to build over several weeks. There is no maximum length of time over which Ultra™ Fish Oils may be taken. A regular intake is recommended.[Top]

Can Ultra™ Fish Oils be taken with medicines simultaneously?

Generally Ultra™ Fish Oils can be taken alongside medications. However, for specific advice on taking Ultra™ Fish Oils with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.[Top]

Is Ultra™ Fish Oils recommended with any other Vitabiotics’ product(s)?

Ultra™ Fish Oils can be used alongside the majority of Vitabiotics’ products.[Top]

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Ultra™ Fish Oils?

Ultra™ Fish Oils has no known side-effects when taken as directed. As with other supplements, seek professional advice before using if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or suffer from food allergies, or are allergic to fish or fish products. If you have epilepsy or are taking oral anti-coagulants (blood thinners) consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this product.[Top]

Is Ultra™ Fish Oils suitable for vegetarians?

No. Ultra™ Fish Oils is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid Alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Ultra™ Fish Oil contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA.[Top]

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.

Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
