The following review examines the claims made by Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil supplement. Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil is a dietary supplement that provides 300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids. This product also provides DHA and EPA fatty acids that support and maintain the health of your cardiovascular system.
Manufacturer claims suggest that taking fish oil on a regular basis helps to keep triglyceride levels in normal range, ensuring the optimal health of your cardiovascular system. Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil is formulated to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil contains 2000mg of fish oil. This is a blend of EPA, DHA, and other fatty acids. These oils are sourced from sardine, anchovy, and mackerel. The manufacturer claims that the fish oil ingredients are sourced from fresh waterways in Peru to ensure the highest standards of purity. However, it is concerning that the exact dosages of the EPA and DHA are not specified. These are the important elements of what makes an Omega-3 product effective. Other ingredients include:
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Food glaze
- Mixed Natural Tocopherols
- Polysorbate 80
- Potassium sorbate
- Sodium alginate
The manufacturer recommends a dosage of two softgel capsules daily, preferably with meals, providing 2000 mg of fish oil.
Possible Side Effects
Fish oil should not be taken when taking blood thinners or when you have a scheduled surgical procedure. When used in moderation for 1 to 4 weeks, fish oil is largely safe. However, it can cause adverse reactions in some people especially if used in higher doses, including nausea, heartburn, belching, nosebleeds, rash, and bad breath.
Individuals with fish allergies may experience allergic reactions after taking this supplement.
Do not supplement with fish oil if you’re pregnant or nursing without consulting a doctor first.

Our Conclusive Review of Natures Bounty Fish Oil Supplement
Nature’s Bounty Fish Oil claims to provide essential Omega-3 fatty acids for enhancing heart health and reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. We do not doubt this claim but we found the product lacking in many aspects. Notably, the fact that the maker is not willing to stand by their product in form of a guarantee says a lot about the quality of the supplement.
Overall, there are plenty of fish oil supplements being sold online and Nature’s Bounty seems like another run-of-the-mill product. We did not find anything extraordinary about this product.
