I haven't taken them long enough to measure any lowered bad and elevated good cholesterol yet, but then that's always been my problem. I can't take fish oil pills long enough to produce results because they generally stink and the burping of fish oil is horrible. I even burp the "burpless" drugstore brands. Well, not these Menscience Omega 3 pills. They do not stink, they do not taste foul and I do not burp them at all. I'll post an updated review when I get my next quarterly cholesterol tests back, but for now, I'm satisfied with the product because I can at least take them without side effects.
You can see and feel the improvment!

I normally don't write reviews but I felt this product was worth telling everyone about. I've taken many other Omega 3/fish oil type products in the past and never really noticed a difference.
However, with the Omega 3 supplement from Men’s Science, I actually could see and feel a difference. Since taking this supplement I've noticed that my skin looked great and felt better. My skin feels hydrated and it’s softer. I also had improvements in my eyes. I used to have dry eyes and now it seems that the dry eyes are gone. More impressive is that this stuff worked on me while I’ve been in a dry, arid, and dusty environment.
I have been recommending this to friends and I would certainly recommend it to you if you're considering it.
The Difference Between Quality and Cheap

I've been using them for several years and these supplements have contributed significantly in lowering my cholesterol. I started buying them based on a review of several brands and these were rated best in terms of purity. I've taken them for granted. My wife was recently told to start taking fish oil supplements and bought some from a drugstore chain-she had all the side effects you hear about. The supplements themselves even smelled terrible. She switched to mine from Men's Science and all the side effects went away. They cost a little more but are worth it. Try them.

The products are great so far. The Omega is helping and the multivitamin is one of the only I can take on the fly without upsetting my stomach.[...]
every man should take this

I asked my doctor about this supplement and he said it was the highest purity of omega 3 he had seen. I started taking this product over 6 months ago and now take 2 pills everyday and feel fantastic. Every man should take enough omega 3 and this is the best way to take the highest purity fish oil.
the best omega 3 available

I’ve read a lot about the importance of omega 3 and EFAs and finally started taking these after a lot of research, the menscience omegas are the only ones I could find that guarantee the purity and the concentration, and are considered pharma grade. I think the menscience supplements are the best ones in the market.
Good product but more than I can afford
By Mat J. from Toronto, ON
I would recommend almost every product in the MenScience line... except this one.
Don't get me wrong, it is actually an excellent product (which is why I didn't just give it one star). The thing is that it is too pricey for me although autoship brings the price down.
If you are particularly loyal to the MenScience brand (and I CAN see why you would be!) it is still definitely a high-quality product, molecular distillation being the gold standard for Omega-3s, and focusing on the right ones. The ratio of Omega 3s to 6s in our diet should typically be between 1:1 and 1:4, but the typical modern American diet is closer to 1:30, and 9 is NOT an essential fatty acid (ie your body can make it, whereas 3's and 6's must be obtained from external sources) so the Omega 3-6-9 products on the market are a waste! And many Omega-3 formulations are largely comprised of ALA (α-Linolenic acid) which is a very cheap, abundant, and most importantly weak and ineffective Omega-3, so it's important to know what you're buying. A good product will generally omit ALA altogether. This Omega-3 formulation focuses on the BEST Omega-3s, EPA and DHA, DPA is decent too, and is an intermediary between the two, but is not particularly vital and the dose is quite low anyways.
There are 3 supplements that just about EVERYONE can benefit from taking, and a good Omega-3 formulation is one of them, along with vitamin D (D3 in particular) and a bioavailable, chelated form of magnesium (glycinate, taurinate, etc).

Is this product free of PCB’s, mercury and heavy metals?

What are Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids?
Omega 3 Fatty Acids are essential components of human health that are not naturally present within the body. Because of this, it is necessary to ingest Omega 3 Fatty Acids from outside sources on a daily basis to maintain good health. Two of the most beneficial Omega 3 Fatty Acids that are easily absorbed and utilized by the body are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). They are used by the body to help improve cardiovascular functions and overall heart health, reduce arthritis and inflammation, and play a key role in brain functions associated with vision, development and emotions.
