Our highest-strength ultra-pure fish oil containing over 70% omega-3 fatty acid content
- Also available in:
- 60 softgels
Eicosamax®, our highest-strength fish oil supplement, contains 70% highly purified omega-3 fatty acids, an amount well above the usual 18% EPA and 12% DHA concentrations found in many other brands. This exceptional fish oil is often preferred due to its extra-strength formulation and fresh, non-fishy taste. Advanced molecular distillation processing superconcentrates the amount of EPA and DHA from fish oil for added convenience and enhanced benefit. The increased nutritional density of this oil makes it especially suitable when high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids are required to support cardiovascular, neurological, and immune functions. The potency, purity, and price of Eicosamax® compares favorably against other high-strength, highly refined fish oil products, making it a very cost-effective choice. Our proprietary formulation process ensures removal of residual fish proteins and other compounds that contribute to fishy smell and aftertaste. A natural vitamin E and rosemary oil antioxidant blend maintains stability by protecting against peroxide formation that can affect taste and reduce healthy benefits. Natural lemon flavor imparts a refreshing, hint-of-lemon taste and promotes compliance month after month. Each batch is analyzed by an independent, third-party laboratory to verify oil purity and omega-3 potency. Cholesterol-free.

Eicosamax® is a highly purified, concentrated fish oil supplement containing 70% omega-3 fatty acids. Natural lemon oil adds a delicate citrus scent and taste resulting in no fishy smell or aftertaste.
Wild sardine, anchovy, and mackerel are responsibly and sustainably harvested from cold waters off the coast of South America and Antarctica to create the oils in this product. These species of small marine fish have the highest naturally occurring amounts of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Yes. Environmental contaminants such as mercury can end up in fish and some fish oil products, posing a health risk. Molecular distillation and ultra-filtration of Eicosamax® removes environmental toxins, including mercury, PCBs, and dioxins.
The sophisticated purification process used for Eicosamax® not only removes potentially harmful toxins, but also removes residual particulates such as protein molecules and other impurities that contribute to fishy taste. Natural lemon oil is added to enhance Eicosamax® with the clean, refreshing, light taste of lemon.
The fish oil used in Eicosamax® is processed in a certified pharmaceutical-level cGMP facility validated by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) verification program. In addition to removing heavy metals, PCBs, cholesterol, saturated fatty acids and other unwanted ingredients, stringent specifications are maintained for the percentage of long-chain omega-3 fatty acid content present as EPA and DHA.
Yes, an accredited, independent laboratory analyzes every batch of Eicosamax® to ensure that published guidelines for purity, potency, and freshness are met. A fatty acid profile confirms Eicosamax® contains 70% omega-3 fatty acids. Highly sensitive testing methodologies for detection of heavy metals and other contaminants are used to verify safety. Freshness analysis of the fish oil consistently shows very low peroxide values, the primary indicator of a stable, fresh, non-rancid product.
To avoid undesirable fatty acid oxidation and rancidity, exposure of the oil to oxygen is avoided by careful handling under nitrogen or vacuum conditions throughout the extraction and purification process. A natural antioxidant blend of mixed tocopherols (vitamin E) and rosemary extract is added to further prevent oxidation and degradation of the oil.
Why do the Eicosamax® and Eicosamax® Liquid labels report two different measurements for EPA and DHA?
Omega-3 content of fish oil can be characterized in several ways, often making product comparisons difficult. Some products report omega-3 as a percentage of the oil (called area percent), while others list the milligram weight of the fatty acid compound present (compound weight). However, because different compounds yield varying amounts of EPA and DHA, the actual free fatty acid content is overstated in both cases. For labeling uniformity, the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) recommends listing the actual EPA and DHA content as free fatty acid (FFA) equivalents. Klaire Labs™ complies with CRN guidelines by reporting actual FFA weight of EPA and DHA. We also report the higher (but somewhat misleading) compound weights for the purpose of product comparison.
The suggested use for Eicosamax® Liquid is ½ teaspoon, 1 to 3 times daily with food or as directed by a healthcare professional. The suggested use for Eicosamax® softgels is 1 softgel, 1 to 3 times daily with food or as directed by a healthcare professional.
