Are Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels easy to swallow?
Our Omega 3 Mini Gels are 50% smaller than the industry standard 1000mg soft gels, each serving of 2 mini gels contains 1000 mg of full potency fish oil, which provides 550 mg of omega-3 essential fatty acids, including DHA and EPA – easy to swallow for anyone who struggles with larger soft gels.
If you still have some difficulty, you can always puncture the soft gels and squeeze the fish oil onto cold food. This method will not compromise the product's efficacy, provided the food is consumed right away to avoid oxidization of the oil. We advise not adding the fish oil to hot food, as this may damage some of the valuable properties.
What is the dose of Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels?
The mini gels contain the very same high-quality fish oil blend as the standard Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil, simply in a smaller size.
It may be taken by children as young as two years old at a dose of one soft gel per day, however, at this age, it is best to pierce the capsule and give the oil to the child on a spoon or mix into food.

For teenagers and adults, it is recommended to take 2 servings (4 soft gels) per day, which is equivalent to 1 serving of standard Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil.

Where are the Hoki and Tuna Fish Oil from?
The Hoki Fish Oil is sourced from the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean off the coast of New Zealand.
The molecular distilled ethyl ester Tuna Fish Oil is sourced from the clear waters of the Southern Indian Ocean.
Why use tuna oil rather than smaller fish like sardines or anchovies, which have less bioaccumulation of toxins?
The benefit of tuna oil is that it is naturally rich in DHA. Smaller fish may tend to have less accumulation of toxins, but this is not an issue with Xtend-Life fish oil because of the careful way the Tuna is processed. The Tuna oil is produced using molecular distillation and enzymatic hydrolysis. This results in exceptionally pure oil in natural Triglyceride form. This is why Xtend-Life fish oil has much lower levels of contaminants than other fish oil products on the market.
What is the extraction process of the tuna Fish Oil?
Our Tuna oil is supplied by one of the world's best fish oil manufacturers. This manufacturer uses very modern equipment and production methods to produce the concentrated Tuna oil. This means that the oil is only exposed to modest heat for a brief period during the concentration and purification of the oil. We chose this manufacturer because they are one of only a very small number in the world who has the ability to produce this high-quality oil while avoiding the need to use significant heat or convert the oil to Ethyl Esters during production.
Will the Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil help children with ADHD, learning difficulties or that have trouble focusing?
Xtend-Life Fish Oil has a high level of DHA (around 30%), which is the most complex of all omega 3 essential fatty acids and it is readily absorbed by the brain before any other Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Increasing the DHA content in the red blood cells of the brain has been shown to lessen hyperactivity or behavior problems and encourage better concentration and focus.
Unfortunately, children these days often don't get enough DHA in their diet, therefore supplementing with a product high in DHA may offer great benefits to your children.
Will Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil help improve eczema?
