Korexin Omega Review - Does This Fatty Acid Really Work? Are unnecessary ingredients and cost deal breakers?
In the weeks that led to this review, I figured out whether Korexin Omega actually works. We took our time creating this comprehensive reviews, focusing intently on ingredients, side effects, customer-service quality, and scientific studies. We also analyzed numerous user comments found online. Finally, we summarized the data we gathered to give you the facts you need to make an informed decision.
What is Korexin Omega?
First off, Korexin Omega is a fatty acid supplement. The ingredients include conjugated linoleic acid, gamma linoleic acid, linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid. The company claims the product will improve immune function, help protect against heart disease and cancer, increase muscle growth, and promote fat loss.
Korexin Omega is made by the Zudker Group which is located in Washington. The company lists BBB Accreditation, but the link to the Better Business Bureau did not direct to the company’s information either. Detailed information about the company is not readily available, so read on….
Our first concern is that some of the Korexin Omega ingredients appear to be unnecessary. According to our Research Editor, “Several of the ingredients are part of a group called Omega-6 fatty acids. These are not necessary as the average person has an intake of about fifteen times greater than they need. We do need the others, which are Omega-3 but it is unclear how much each supplement contains.”
An indignant purchaser reported, “I didn’t experience any weight loss after taking this for two months. Disappointing.”
This concerned shopper quipped, “If think I feel a little better overall but I haven’t lost any weight.”
Interestingly, there were some dieters who appreciated the narrow focus of the product.
A contented individual pointed out, “I don’t get enough Omega-3 and this gets me there.”
While another woman mentioned, “This helps a lot of different things and it helped me lose a few pounds.”
This is essentially a collection of fatty acids with no other active ingredients. At nearly $50 per month, many people found the cost too high.
One disgruntled person claimed, “I used this for several months because supposedly it can take a while to begin noticing effects. No weight loss in three months is an expensive experiment.”
A reviewer noted, “I’ve spent hundreds waiting for this to work. I won’t be spending anymore.”
Others were happy to pay what they considered a fair price for a product they wanted.
This optimistic consumer explained, “I feel better overall, how can I put a price on that.”
Another commented, “This works great and is completely worth it for me.”
According to our research, when a company includes ingredients the average person doesn’t need it can increase the cost without providing any additional results. If Korexin Omega contains fatty acids that the customer doesn’t need, that could be an issue.
The Science – “Decent”
At DietSpotlight we have read most of the most recent information available about popular dietary ingredients. There are many studies that show a positive effect of getting enough Omega-3 fatty acids. However, the manufacturer does not provide studies specific to their formula nor do they disclose the exact amounts in the product. Plus, a strong connection to weight-loss just isn’t there.
The Bottom Line – Does Korexin Omega Work?
Should I race out for a bottle of Korexin Omega? If you have a deficiency in the fatty acids that make up the bulk of the ingredient list, this may be an option worth considering. However, most dieters do not suffer from deficiencies in Omega-6 fatty acids and the amount of the potentially beneficial Omega-3 is not listed. This makes it difficult to ascertain the level of benefit it could provide which is why we have reservations about giving it the green light.
If the time has come to jump start your metabolism, you may want to check out a weight-loss supplement that only utilizes proven ingredients to produce the desired effect.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016, is one called Leptigen. It is made with a combination of four active ingredients, which have been clinically shown to help boost fat loss, decrease appetite and kick-start metabolism. We could not locate any negative user reviews online, and consumer responses around the web reveal dieters are seeing fantastic results.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in the performance of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer. Fantastic!
Previous Korexin Omega Review (Updated August 14, 2013):
What You Should KnowKorexin Omega is a fatty acid supplement we believe all dieters could use. Omega fatty acids are commonly found in foods we eat every day, but certain acids like omega 3 fatty acids, are found in foods with higher fat and calorie contents so dieters tend to steer clear when they are trying to lose weight. Omega fatty acids may help protect the heart and support overall health and wellness. There are no potential side effects of taking a supplement like Korexin Omega, for most dieters. If you are pregnant or nursing, have a medical condition or you are taking prescription medications, talk to your physician before taking an omega fatty acid supplement lie Korexin Omega.
List of IngredientsIngredients:
Product FeaturesThe ingredients in Korexin Omega are simple to understand. CLA is conjugated linoleic acid. There was once a time when CLA was the emerging weight loss supplement. Claims included being able to lose weight without changing diet or exercising. Those claims were soon replaced with real scientific findings and CLA was moved back into line as an omega not a weight loss product. GLA or gamma linoleic acid is often referred to as omega 6 fatty acid. We are not sold on the effort of Korexin Omega to include omega 6 fatty acids. There is a careful balance that needs to be met in the body for optimal health. That balance should be 1 to 1, but health improvements may be recognized at a ratio of 5 to 1. Western diets are omega 6 heavy with an average ratio of 15 to 1; omega 6 to omega 3. Dieters do not need more omega 6 fatty acids, they need more omega 3s to balance out the healthy ratio. EPA and DHA are the omega 3 fatty acids we want to take and intake more of. There is no mention on the official Korexin Omega website of the amount of omega 3s in the supplement, but the benefits of omega 3s in Korexin would be minimized by the amount of omega 6s.
