I must say I was very leary when I ordered the Omega XL. My bad cholesterol (LDL) had gotten extremely high, and my good cholesterol (HDL) continued to drop lower and lower, almost off the charts, and my triglycerides were climbing by the day to a really high level, even with taking Rx cholesterol and triclyceride medications and Fish Oil or Kril Oil.
I just thought, "What do I have to lose? After all, it has a money back guarantee." I too, was very upset when I got the first shipment and it recommended to take 2 in the AM and 2 in the PM for the first month ) (I don't think that was mentioned in the infomercial) and 1 in the AM and 1 in the PM after that, but I was determined to give it a try. MAN, AM I GLAD I DID!!! I have had an issues with my levels for years now and nothing seemed to work.
At one time, I was on 6 fish oils a day and Prevastatin and Welchol (which is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE - even with insurance. When my Rx discount card for Welchol ran out, I told my Dr. I could no longer afford that and that is when she suggested the Kril Oil, since it was supposed to be better than the fish oil and taking 4-6 Fish Oil a day was just more than I could tolerate.) I had my labs drawn a few months after starting the Omega XL, not really expecting to see much difference, and man was I SHOCKED!. I wish I could attach my graphs from my past levels.
All of my levels are now within totally NORMAL RANGES and my good cholesterol has risen so much it is now almost over the normal range. I can't say enough good things about it. I continue to take 1 pill morning and night and will continue to do so. My husband has issues as well, but we wanted to see what results I had before he started taking it as well.
After my results, he is now going to start on it as well.
Can't say that I've really seen a lot of difference with joint pain, but my numbers are temendously improved.
Reason of review: My labs have improved drastically.
