Muscle Blaze Omega 3 Fish Oil 1000 mg (180mg EPA and 120mg DHA).
After using the product for almost about 3 months I am going to write this review. Well, I am not here to promote any brands. All I am trying to do here is spread awareness among people with regards to supplements they are buying. If you are making an investment make it worth. You should have the proper understanding of supplements which you are buying so that you will be aware of what you are getting yourself into.
Let me first give you a brief introduction of fish oil.
Well, fish oil is one of the most commonly consumed dietary supplements. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and has several health benefits which we will cover in the later part of this article. Fish oil is nothing but the fat extracted from the tissue of fish. It mostly comes from oily fish such as tuna, mackerel, and herring etc. and some of them are extracted from the livers of other fish which we call cod liver oil.
As per the World Health Organization (WHO), a person is supposed to have 1-2 portions of fish per week to meet the requirement for omega-3 fatty acids. For those who are unable to eat 1-2 portions of fish per week and add the supplement like such to meet their daily requirement omega-3. However, at Oye Gabruu (OG) we encourage people to get the nutrition directly from bioavailable resources in this case such as fish and other plant-based omega-3s like flax and chia seeds. The more natural is the source of nutrients better will be the results in long run.
Please note that the types of omega-3s found in fish oil have much more health benefits than plant based omega-3s.
What is EPA and DHA found in Fish oil?
Let me first break down Omega-3s. Omega-3s are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids or PUFAs. Though our body is capable of making most of the fats which we need that is not the case with omega-3s. We need to get this from food or supplements.
Fish oil contains two very important omega-3 PUFAs and those are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the omega-3 in plant sources is mainly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
These EPA and DHA are two powerful horses of omega-3s family and there have been numerous researches which were done on these two. They had evident results in lowering triglyceride levels and blood pressure, improving mood, mental health, helping reduce pain and inflammation and many more health benefits.
The reason we focus so much on the amount of EPA and DHA is that almost all medical research to date has focused on those fatty acids, even though they are not the sole members of the omega-3 family.
Now let’s talk about the product.

Since now you have a fair knowledge of what is fish oil and what it has in it. That will help you to understand the product we are reviewing here.
Muscle blaze Omega-3. This is 1000mg fish oil which has the only 180mg of EPA and 120mg of DHA. The ratio of EPA and DHA is very low in this product. Though the price looks very reasonable i.e. for 90 Soft gels of fish oil it will cost you only 500 INR. However to see the evident results you need to consume at least 2000mg of fish oil and the maximum recommended dosage is 3000mg.
If we do the calculation if we are taking 2 pills a day we are still reaching only 360 mg of EPA and 240 mg of DHA. So a pack of 90 soft gels will only last for 45 days. This makes this product a little expensive here.
However, I started noticing the evident result after 45 days. While I was lifting heavy there was no pain in my joints. I was performing better in the gym my skin started glowing a bit and I also noticed some advantage on the weight loss side. Hair fall also reduced to a great extent.
If you are looking to see these results soon rather than waiting for 45 days then I would recommend you to buy a Fish oil which has 360mg of EPA and 240mg of DHA in a single pill. Twice a day of such fish oil will help you to see results in two weeks itself and in long run will save you few bucks as well.
Muscle Blaze fish oil is definitely a good choice but it depends for what purpose you are taking it also the results and results duration you are expecting.
