I was excited to order the ULTIMATE Omega-3 when Andrew introduced it. I think it may have been a today's special. As an English teacher I felt that the ULTIMATE had to be better than the ESSENTIAL Omega-3 my family had been using. WRONG! What a misnomer. The ULTIMATE only has 500mg of Omega 3. My good old ESSENTIAL had 830 mg and were SMALLER and much easier to swallow. ULTIMATE has LESS than Essential in every ingredient! What's that all about?? How deceptive! Andrew why would you make a new version with LESS ingredient and make it LARGER and more difficult to swallow. My family uses many of your products, but I'm not sure if we'll continue after this.[-x

Hi smileniii,

I don't understand why you felt duped?? Andrew explained pretty well in his presentations why they were being labeled as Ultimate and how they were different from the regular version. I am sorry you did not understand. Basically, instead of taking 2 capsules to get your daily required dosage, now all you need to take is one capsule because there is more product in the capsule. This is of course why the capsules are fatter. But I believe if this configuration is not convenient for you, the original formulation is still available for purchase.

Smileniii - When you look at the label of the Ultimate the serving size is one capsule for the 500 mg. The Essential product requires 2 capsules for the 830 mg, or 415 mg per capsule. So you are looking at a 20% increase in Omega-3 per capsule (reason for the capsule size change). Depending on the amount you take (or Doctor recommends), you may need to take fewer capsules, thus making it a very good value. For me I try to take around 1,000 per day, which is 2 capsules with the Ultimate. With the Essential I would take 2 some days and 3 on others, so I could get about 1,000 per day. I find the new size much more user friendly.

I hear you & agree. They were a TS in April, and I returned them. Very dissapointed. I will stick with his original version in the future.Right now I am all out, as I returned the TS.I hope his next TS on the Omegas is NOT this version. I already posted about my experience on this board. Pro Caps know, as I called them.
