How To Choose An Omega Supplement

If you’re not taking an Omega-3 supplement, you should be. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to nearly every aspect of health, including neurological, cardiovascular and certainly immunological.


Fatty fish like salmon are often the best dietary source of omega-3 for both EPA and DHA. For supplements, fish oil supplements can work well if you need to increase your omega-3 fatty acid intake.


But what do you need to know to distinguish good supplements from less than stellar ones? There are four things to keep in mind: freshness, form, purity and type. Let’s explore.




Fish oil capsules can go rancid and that naturally diminishes the product quality and health properties. Freshness is best determined by the way the product is originally sourced and packaged. My Opti Omega is sourced from waters off the Chilean coast, one of the world’s least industrialized coastline. From these cold, fresh waters, we are able to provide oil from the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Part of our process is to purify and vacuum distill the fish oil for maximum freshness and shelf life stability. We have strict standards for purity, and our products are certified by third-party laboratories to ensure they are free of contaminants, toxins, and heavy metals.


Form and Type


You want a supplement that contains natural triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids because they translate to maximize absorption by the body. Some supplements contain esters which are easier and cheaper to manufacture but are much less effective than the natural Opti ingredients found in whole food sources. There are three omegas that are important: DHA, EPA and ALA. DHA and EPA are natural.

08-09-21 Deep Dive PREMIUM – with Jamie Walden

Meet Jamie Walden, of Omega Dynamics. Imbued with matchless passion for all things “adventurous” and “fun”, Jamie’s teen years were filled with significant tumult (injuries, arrests, and choices of near life-long consequence). However, amid the rebellion and ruckus, Jamie continually endeavored to one day earn the title, “U.S. Marine”. After being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence, and Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., where he subsequently secured a nomination to the US Naval Academy, Jamie made the determination to simply enlist in the Marine Corps Infantry and achieve his childhood dream.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
