Helped me while easing off antidepressants.
About a year ago, I was being treated for depression and anxiety and was taking antidepressant (Escitalopram) and anti-anxiety (Clonazepam, Ativan) medications and didn't like how they made me feel or the impacts they could have on my heart health, so I decided to go off of them (disclaimer: remember to always ask your doctor if it's okay to stop taking a medication and how to safely reduce your doses over time!). I had read a lot online about the terrible symptoms many others experienced when coming off of the particular meds I was taking and was a bit frightened, and also worried about if my mental health would decline without the medications. I was/am very familiar with Genuine Health and their products and decided to try omega3+joy in the hopes that it would help support me as I transitioned off the medications. Well, I DO believe that the success of my coming off of these medications was greatly influenced by taking the omega3+joy. The side effects I experienced from coming off of the drugs was far away from the horrific descriptions I had read about from other patients online, and I know from one anecdotal experience that the symptoms must have been greatly reduced (I had skipped one of my medications for a day or two earlier in my treatment and had experienced TERRIBLE side effects, so to feel much less side effects when taking omegas as compared to that experience, I feel is proof for me). I also feel that the omegas did help to support my mood during the transition and help keep me more stable. I was suffering with serious depression, and was worried I would spiral right back into it as soon as I stopped taking the medications, but I was able to keep healthy and continue my path of healing with diet, lifestyle and counselling. I would definitely recommend these as an additional support to anyone currently on antidepressant medications (remember to check with your doctor for drug interactions) and/or to anyone who may be thinking about transitioning off of them; and, I would say that these omega are a very powerful tool towards positive mental health.
After my hysterectomy, i was taking your Meno for three years off and on. My body once again started to change so i went off as i wasnt having night sweats or the hot flashes as much. After researching.. I needed just a bit of happiness to kill the moods. Once again Genuine Health came through :). Back to my old self with happy thoughts. The cranky gal is gone! Thanks!
I am a 48 yrs old male, professional, father of two teenagers and consider myself balanced in my lifestyle (exercise, work, daily meditation etc). I had been suffering from panic attacks and mild social phobia for many years and was always reluctant to start using drugs prescribed by doctor (Rivotrin and paxil)...today, I thank got I never touched this medication. I discovered Omega3 Joy about 6 months ago and something miraculous has happened. Within a month, I was no longer having anxiety attacks (sweating in meetings etc.) ...I feel much more confident and generally in a happy mood, pretty much all the time! Thank you for an excellent product!!
Hello,Just wanted to write and say I purchased some of your Omega 3 + Joy, I LOVE this product and would highly recommend it, I have been actually to everyone i see! I have only been on them for about a week but I feel so much better with my anxiety issues, Thank You for making such a fantastic product!
I went to my gynecologist 2 years ago. She recommended Omega3 Joy for my mood swings. They were off the chart with all the emotional stress at work and at home. One minute I was normal, the next I was so upset it was violent and the next I wanted to curl up and cry. It got worse with SPM, I did not recognise myself anymore. Within 2-3 weeks of taking Omega3 Joy, my coworkers saw a difference. Less moody, more outgoing, less prone to outbursts. It really works. Even my family say a difference, now most of my family take Omega3 Joy (with visible improvements as weel) and I have been recommending this product to my friends as well.
Omega3+joy and a multi+energy and you're set!
I was diagnosed with lyme disease earlier this summer and the combination of the disease and the antibiotics really messed me up in terms of my mood, digestion, energy, etc. Once i was finished my antibiotics, I still didn't feel very well - getting all sorts of other little ailments, headaches, colds, etc. Before the antibiotics and lyme disease i was a super happy, energetic person (i had my days, but for the most part i was feeling great), so i was getting worried.
I started taking the daily multi + energy and the omega3 + joy and i feel....amazing. In the past few months i can't remember one day where i wasn't happy energetic. I have to limit myself to just one of the multi+energy sometimes if i don't have time to work out because otherwise i'll be nutty (taking this product gave me the desire and the energy to work out everyday)
These two products have worked wonders for me - i noticed a big improvement when i started taking them and notice i don't feel as well when i have forgotten for a couple of days.
I would definitely recommend this product and it works great (for me) with the multi+energy
Replaced 3 years of Paxil
My husband was diagnosed with depression and was immediately remedied by Paxil. This drug worked well for him for 3 years however he experienced all the usual side-effects, 25lbs weight-gain, non-existent sex-drive, increased alcohol intake etc. He was very scared/hesitant about coming off of Paxil however I spoke to someone knowledgable at a natural food store (he explained to me the science/benefit of increased EPA in O3 Joy) I was able to convince my husband to take it. He weened off of Paxil (after 6 weeks) and started taking O3 Joy and began to notice his depression balanced within 2 weeks. Omega 3 Joy was one of the best things that has ever happened to us primarily I think because his depression was pretty severe and so I didn't expect a natural product would help. He's been taking O3 Joy for the last 3 years every day and has been feeling completely fine. He hasn't gone back on Paxil. I am forever grateful for this product.
Love this product! It saved me
My background: I used to take antidepressants (Effexor) for 7 years. At the end I was feeling all of the side effects instead of the so-called good ones so I decided to take a big step and stop taking these pills. I used to feel down and have panic attacks and anxiety like crazy. It was very difficult for me at some point to live with this problem, even if I was trying really hard to control myself.
So anyway I stopped taking Effexor and started to look into natural products. Went to a store and the woman there recommended me this one. Since I take om3ga+ joy every day I feel good about myself and I don't have any of these anymore (panic attacks, etc.). Perhaps it keeps me healthy. It has nothing to do with the prescriptions/pills we take from a doctor.
Thank you Genuine Health for this wonderful product! You helped me more than you could even imagine!!!!
Mood, inflamation, eczema, crohn's Disease, joints
I noticed results within a week of taking o3mega+ joy. I have Crohn's disease and my small intestines get inflamed as well as I get eczema on my hands. I find that when I take o3mega+ joy my gut feels better and my eczema clears up in a week. If I run out of o3mega+ joy my eczema comes back in a week! Great product and although expensive it makes me feel better both emotionally and physically.
Was looking for a natural product to improve my mood and am very happy to have found o3mega+joy! I noticed a difference after just a couple of days!
I had bought a bottle a few years ago and forgot about it. I came across it one day and decided to finish it. I noticed an immediate improvement on my outlook. I was less moody, I didn't have mood swings, my anxiety levels dropped. My husband and I get along much better now! I bought a new bottle over the weekend and will continue with it. I will recommend this to anyone who faces the same issues I did. Thanks much!!
i noticed a difference in my mood from the third day of taking this. i take one a day (i'm only 100lbs) and to me, it's a miracle in a bottle. totally changed my entire outlook on life.
I am on an all-out get healthy road. I have Celiac Desease, high cholesterol, thyroid problems and anxiety/depression. I have been catching every virus that comes along and then it gets severe enough resulting in infections. So, here I go on a new route to better health!
Results are worth the price
It can seem pricey at first, but I think it's worth it for the quality of the product. Better than most of the junk I spend money on.
I have had terrible acne for most of my life. I tried so many things including antibiotics, which were only a temporary solution. I started taking this product because my doctor suggested I take an omega 3 supplement. Within 2 weeks the acne was almost completely gone. I wish I'd known about this when I was younger so I wouldn't have scars now, but I am still extremely pleased with the results.
I am also noticing less PMS mood swings, so I'm sure the people around me would like to hug you guys too.
This product does everything it says it's suppose to do. Really noticed a huge difference in my mood and my skin. After Chemo my skin looked dull and dry and my mood was down. It really is sunshine in a bottle.
Simply fabulous. No coughs, great mood.
Absolutely fantastic. I'm using one unit each day. Feel great !
The liquid works better than capsules
I had been taking the capsules for over 2 years, when I decided to try the liquid for a month. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it seems to work better than the capsules. I have now stayed with the liquid and not only feel better emotionally, but my skin, especially my hands have really improved.
The only drawback to the liquid, is fishy after taste for a long time. Even when taken with food. I can taste it and my girlfriend could too.
So far, for me at least the liquid is more efficiently absorbed than the softgels.
Good product otherwise. Thank you for producing it as a Canadian manufacturer.
Hard to fully put into words how awesome this product is. Love it!! Feel less stressed and sleep better at night because of taking it. Came highly recommended!!!!

Thank you very much for your review, and we are very happy to hear that you are seeing positive results from taking o3mega+ joy!
Regarding your point: “I would like the price to come down a little, as it doesn't seem competitive with other oils of the same quality…”; if you compare other Omega-3 oils with the exact same level of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) concentrate, 1000mg per daily dose, you will find that our pricing is very competitive. It is this high concentration of EPA (1000mg per daily dose) that makes o3mega+ joy effective in helping improve mental outlook, as well as reducing discomfort in the body. Other Omega-3 oils, with a lower concentration of EPA, will not produce the same results (or will require much higher daily doses - in some cases as many as 5 to 10 capsule a day to provide 1 to 2 grams of EPA).
I have taken this product for 2 months and right away I noticed that my anxiety levels have gone down. My mood has been better.
I really recommend this product.
Is helpful to me for mood, discomfort, skin and regularity
I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with all its associated "accessories".
My naturopath recommended this oil to me for its quality, and for the fact that it concentrates more heavily on the Omega 3 s.
I've been on it for a few months, but it didn't take long being on it for me to notice that my discomfort levels went down significantly. My regularity improved, as did my skin, particularly my complexion. My depression eased as well.
Finally, unlike many oils, it tastes pleasant, and I had no trouble digesting it. Considering the quality of my digestion, that is really something special.
I would like the price to come down a little, as it doesn't seem competitive with other oils of the same quality, and I would like to see the cap improved-it's much too hard to remove for someone who has discomfort in the hands. In general, however, a very good product.
