Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels - Same Omega 3 Strength, but Easier to Swallow at Half the Size of Our Regular Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil
Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels contain the same superior quality fish oil blend as our other fish oil products in an easy-to-swallow half-sized soft gel. It delivers the full suite of cardiovascular, brain, eye and joint benefits of omega 3s, without the addition of extra ingredients. A good economical option for those who don’t need the additional benefits from our Omega 3 / DHA Plus or Omega 3 / QH Premium.
Omega 3s have been shown to support cardiovascular health, including healthy triglyceride levels, healthy blood pressure and reduced risk of serious cardiac events.
Brain health and mental clarity
DHA is essential for normal brain function and having plenty of DHA in your diet helps keep memory and cognition in good shape as you age.
Joint health and inflammation
Omega 3s have been shown to fight the inflammation associated with joint pain and arthritis.
Half-sized gel capsule
Delivers all the benefits of our omega 3 blend in a half-sized gel – perfect for children or adults who prefer a smaller size.
Quality Omega 3 Fish Oil
Like our other fish oil products, an adult dose of Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels delivers 1,100mg of combined omega 3s, with 700mg being DHA. According to health authorities, that provides enough to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. Who wouldn’t want that peace of mind?
In addition to cardiovascular support, the benefits of omega 3s for brain health are exceptional. Did you know, that a 100mg/day increment in DHA intake is associated with lower risks of dementia (less than 14%) and more specifically Alzheimer’s (less than 37%)? What’s more, the amount of DHA measured in a person’s blood is positively associated with cognitive performance in adults.
As well as providing long term benefits for brain and cardiovascular health, DHA and EPA promote reduced inflammation – good news for those with joint problems!
In a very recent study published Feb 2022, researchers analyzed the results from 71 research studies looking at omega 3s for joint health.
Their results were nothing short of astonishing. They found that omega 3s improved the clinical parameters of rheumatoid arthritis in ALL 71 studies! That’s about as conclusive as you get!!
The broad health benefits of omega 3s mean high-quality fish oil supplements such as Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels are an excellent choice for anyone wanting to support their health and wellbeing.
Fresh, Natural, Effective
Xtend-Life’s fish oils are one of the most effective and freshest fish oils in the world today. The blend of concentrated oil and natural non-concentrated oil is unique to Xtend-Life and is not available from any other manufacturer.
When we consume seafood, the omega 3s are all in their natural oil form, which is called triglycerides. Most concentrated fish oils have been converted to ethyl esters for processing and then reconstituted back to triglycerides with a loss of efficacy. Xtend-Life’s process for the concentrated component of the fish oil uses a special enzymatic process and keeps the oil in its natural form.
Full Omega 3 Benefits in a Half-Size Gel
Because of their small size, Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels are the ideal fish oil for children. Research has shown the importance of regular omega 3 supplementations to ensure children’s brains develop properly and to improve their learning abilities in children, including reading, memory and behavior.
Some people want to take fish oil soft gels but can’t manage to swallow them. The adult dosage of Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels provides the same amount of omega 3s as our standard fish oil capsules but are half the size, making them the ideal capsule for those who have difficulty swallowing.
Omega 3s are clinically proven to support heart, joint, and brain health and dozens of other benefits, including immunity. We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality product backed by our guarantee: If you don’t feel that it has benefited you in any way, let us know, and we will give you a full refund, less the shipping costs, when you return your empty or unopened bottle.

What are the benefits of taking Omega-3/DHA Fish Oil during pregnancy?
Fish oil is highly regarded and commonly suggested by many health professionals to support the health of both the mother and baby during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Xtend-Life are proud to recommend our high quality and pure Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil or Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil Mini Gels for the benefits it may have for the development of the baby's brain, neurological and physical systems. It can also play a very important role in supporting a balanced post-natal mood for the mother.

If you still have some difficulty, you can always puncture the soft gels and squeeze the fish oil onto cold 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.

How pure is Xtend-Life Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil?
Purity is one of our biggest strengths. We pride ourselves on having some of the most stringent fish oil specifications in the world and we back this up with hard data from independent internationally certified laboratories.

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?
