Review of Dr. Barry Sears
Fish Oil Supplements

Dr. Barry Sears fish oil (also called Zone Lab fish oil concentrates) are pharmaceutical-grade, ultra refined omega 3 concentrates.

Who is Dr. Sears? He is the creator of the popular Zone Diet. While doing research in developing his weight loss program, he created a unique formula of omega 3 supplements that he believes will boost athletic performance, accelerate weight loss and improve your health.

What separates this product line from other fish oils is they provide over 60% of the omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Compared to many store-bought brands, this is almost double the amount of omega 3's.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fats your body needs for cellular support, hormonal balance and heart health. The fact is your body can't make these types of fats, so you need to get them from your diet for optimal health.

Fish oil is one of the best natural sources of omega 3 fatty acids and this is the reason why many people take these types of supplements.

Dr. Sears OmegaRX

Unfortunately, most fish oil supplements supply only 30% EPA and DHA; with the remainder being fish filler. For example, a 1000 mg. generic fish oil capsule will usually provide about 300 mg. of EPA and DHA combined.

The recommended fish oil dosage from scientific groups is a minimum 500 mg. of EPA and DHA per day.

If you take a general fish oil supplement that provides only a 30% concentration, you could simply take 2 or more soft gels a day to meet the minimum recommended dosage.

However, if you have certain health requirements that demand a higher amount of omega 3's, you may want to look at a high concentration omega 3 supplement.

Dr. Barry Sears fish oil soft gels provide up to 60% omega 3 concentrations - each dosage contains 400 mg. EPA and 200 mg. DHA per 1000 mg.

How Pure are Zone Lab Fish Oil Supplements?

These products are highly-purified and tested by the International Fish Oil Standards to provide at least 60% omega 3 concentrations while meeting the acceptable standards for mercury, PCB's and other contaminants.

You also get the addition of sesame oil concentrates which are added to help protect the EPA and DHA from oxidizing.

The Dr. Sears Fish Oil Product Line

If you're thinking of buying Dr. Sears fish oils, you'll find he has three kinds of omega 3 supplements. Each product comes with different concentrations of omega 3 fatty acids meant for specific health needs.

Omega RX

- This is one of his most popular omega 3 concentrates that provides 40% concentration of EPA and DHA.

- I would consider this a good choice for someone seeking general health benefits from omega 3 fatty acids.

- The suggested serving size is 4 capsules a day which provides 4000 mg. of fish oil concentrate yielding 1600 mg. of EPA and 800 mg. of DHA.

- It's available in 60, 120 and 240 capsules/bottle, as well as 8 oz. liquid.

- One teaspoon of Omega RX liquid provides 1800mg. EPA and 900 mg. DHA; you'll find this is one of the highest concentrations of omega 3 fatty acids.

- 120 capsules is a 30 day supply (4 capsules a day). Suggested Retail Price is $61.95 a bottle or $49.56 if you get it on automatic re-order (auto-ship) from Dr. Sears' website. You can also get Dr. Sears OmegaRx Fish Oil at

Eico RX

- This product contains the amount of EPA and DHA concentrates used in Omega Rx; the only difference is the addition of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Dr. Sears claims the GLA helps boost your body's anti-inflammatory response, while providing anti-aging benefits.

- It comes in 120 capsules (30 day supply @ $61.95 bottle) and 8 oz. liquids (45 day supply @ $90.95 bottle).

- This supplement will cost about $2.07 per day (capsules) and $2.02 per day (Liquid). At this price point, it is almost the same price per day as the OmegaRX, except you get the added GLA.

Eico Pro

- This product was formulated for athletes that are involved in intense training.

- It provides one of the highest amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) along with the EPA and DHA amounts found in the Omega RX.

- This product is for anyone requiring a maximum anti-inflammatory response due to intense training sessions. If you're a professional athlete, or involved in rigorous and frequent training sessions, this may be the product for you.

- It's available in 8 oz. liquid (45 day supply @ $99.95 bottle) and 120 capsules (30 day supply @ $71.95 bottle).

- At these prices, it costs $2.22 per day (liquid) and $2.40 per day (capsules). If you're a hard training athlete, these may be the supplements you need for maximum recovery from your work outs.

So why would you want to pay $50 to $100 for a bottle of Barry Sears fish oil when you could go to your local discount superstore and buy a bottle of generic brand fish oils for $20?

The price difference may be due to the price per gram of EPA and DHA found in Dr. Sears fish oils compared to lower priced generic-brand products.

You may have to take more daily doses of a lower priced product to match the high potency you would get from a premium product such as Dr. Sears fish oils.

The initial cost may be more, but you will be getting an IFOS-approved fish oils with some of the highest EPA and DHA concentrations.
