This is our review of Spring Valley Fish Oil. Spring Valley Fish Oil is a dietary supplement that provides essential omega-3 fatty acids. Taking Spring Valley Fish Oil regularly helps to improve and maintain optimal heart health according to manufacturer claims.
The core purpose for fish oil supplementation is enhancing heart health and this is the main promise of Spring Valley Fish Oil. To achieve this, regular supplementation helps keep blood pressure low, prevents clogged arteries, reduces chances of stroke and heart attack, and in people already suffering from heart disease, it minimizes the chances of sudden death from cardiac arrest.
Spring Valley Fish Oil contains 1000mg of fish oil providing 260mg of EPA and DHA. This is a low dose of EPA and DHA, particularly if they are combined. These are important omega-3 fatty acids providing many essential benefits to the body. Other ingredients include:
According to manufacturer claims, Spring Valley Fish Oil is purified to eliminate mercury. It contains no gluten, wheat, milk and milk products, artificial colors and flavoring, sugar, and lactose.
For adults, the recommended dosage is 3 softgels daily taken at meal times. You can also take the softgels without food but it increases the chances of stomach irritation.
Possible Side Effects
Fish Oil has many reported side effects, albeit most are not very serious. The most common include burping, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, nose bleeds, and rash. Taking the supplement with meals greatly reduces these side effects.
Note that fish oil may exacerbate the effect of blood thinners especially if taken at higher doses (3000 mg a day). This significantly increases the chances of bleeding. Talk to your doctor before increasing your daily dosage of fish oil. Avoid fish oil supplementation altogether if you are going for surgery.
Some people report a fishy taste in the mouth after starting fish oil supplementation but this should subside with time.
Spring Valley Fish Oil is available online from Walmart at $5.94 per bottle containing 200 capsules. Unsurprisingly, there are no offers or discounts at such a low price.
Guarantee & Feedback
There’s no guarantee offered with this product, which is quite disappointing. Spring Valley appears to offer a multitude of fish oil varieties mostly priced below $20. While it’s a let down that they do not offer any purchase guarantees, we were not surprised given the pricing of their products, which appears to reflect their quality.
Besides a couple of user queries, we could not find any reviews for this product.
Our Conclusive Review About Spring Valley Fish Oil
Spring Valley Fish Oil is just one variety of the many offered by the company. It’s almost impossible to tell how they differ but since they are lowly priced, you may try out one variety to see if it meets your expectations.
That said, there is nothing extraordinary to report about Spring Valley Fish Oil. It is clearly a sub-par product that contains low levels of EPA and DHA and our doubts were confirmed by the lack of a guarantee from the manufacturer.
