What You Should Know
NutraOrigin Omega 3 is a fish oil supplement that is the manufacturer’s best selling product. People take Omega 3 supplements for the benefits of the fatty acids it contains. Claims concerning these benefits include cardiovascular, cognitive function, and mood improvement.
Beware of the NutraOrigin free bottle offer. Several customers have lodged complaints that relate stories of biting on the free offer line only to find out later they have agreed to purchase more supplements on an automatic shipment basis. In some cases, the company has automatically charged a customer who signed on for a free sample for several shipments at $26.99 per bottle. Be sure to read the fine print thoroughly before making any order, even for free products.

NutraOrigin’s lists possible benefits of its Omega 3 supplement as including the promotion of healthy aging, joint health, improved bone mineral density, enhanced cognitive function, enhanced eye health, healthier pregnancy, mood boosting, the support of normal heart rhythm, maintenance of blood viscosity, support of mental health, support of weight loss, and helping you to feel full.

One way to glean any benefits from fish oil is to include cold water fish such as mackerel or salmon in your regular diet, thus enjoying the nutritional benefits as well.
If you do decide that Omega 3 supplements are the best way for you to provide your system with the fatty acids you need, you will pay just under $30 for a one-month supply of the NutraOrigin Omega 3 product, a cost that does not seem to be exorbitant alone, but when you consider the combined costs of all the health supplements you purchase, may be an expense you could put to better use in enjoying of a fresh fish dinner a few times per month.
