Why Do I Need Pure Omega 3 Fish Oil? You probably have a relatively healthy diet, but how often do you eat a plate of oily fish such as mackerel or sardines? Omega 3 is a healthy fat which cannot be synthesised in the body, so it has to come from our diet. There are many benefits, including for our heart, brain and eye health.
Omega 3 Content Per Dose: 2 capsules have 860mg EPA and 440mg DHA (the same as a whole tin of sardines – with bones).
Made from Wild, Sustainably Caught Fish: To produce our Lion Heart Maxi Capsules, we only use small wild fish from fisheries certified by both Friends of the Sea and IFFO-RS, the global responsible supply standard. We choose small fish because they’re right at the bottom of the food chain, meaning they contain fewer heavy metals and other pollutants such as PCBs..
IFOS Certified For Peace Of Mind: Every batch is independently tested on top of the two sets of tests we carry out ourselves. Your guarantee our oils are pure, fresh and safe. Check out the results below.
Easily Digested: Not only are Lion Heart Maxi capsules strong, fresh and pure, they’re in the natural triglyceride form. Easier for the body to absorb so you feel the benefits faster.
Our Capsules: All of our capsules are made from sustainably sourced fish gelatin. We think it’s just wrong to put fish oil inside beef or pork gelatin, especially if you don’t eat meat.
Calories per dose: 25
How long will a pack last me: one month if you take 2 a day. Two months if you take 1 a day.
Packaging: 100% recyclable glass pot.
Current batch & expiry: batch LHC6031484, expiry date March 2022.
Lion Heart capsules are pure as pure can be, with no unnecessary ingredients, and are teeny tiny:
Natural triglyceride-form fish oil from sardines, anchovies and mackerel (smaller fish with fewer contaminants)
Fish gelatin and glycerol BP to hold it all together (no pork or beef)
A tiny amount of vitamin E (tocopherol) to naturally preserve
That’s it. Pure goodness in every capsule. If you take two a day, you’re treating yourself to 1460mg Omega 3 (860mg EPA and 440mg DHA).
We make the fish oil in Norway and the capsules in the UK. Our fish are sustainably caught from clean, wild waters and FOS & IFFO-RS certified fisheries.
Even so, it’s always good to check with your doctor before taking supplements like this one if you:
are on any medication, such as blood thinners
are about to have surgery
have health concerns or conditions
The capsules don’t need to be kept in the fridge, but best to keep them somewhere cool.

Two capsules a day will give you an excellent level of EPA & DHA, the same as a tin of sardines. That’s 1460mg Omega 3 (860mg EPA and 440mg DHA) for 30 days.
If you feel you need more, you can try Lion Heart liquid – one teaspoon of this is the equivalent of 5 capsules. Or in more science-y terms, 3650mg of Omega 3 (2150mg EPA and 1100mg DHA).
It’s best to take your capsules with meals – either all at once or spread throughout the day. Taking Lion Heart with food helps your body absorb it, and it can help you get into the habit of taking Omega 3.
We don’t recommend breaking the capsules open to give to children as it’s a bit fiddly and you’ll waste some of the oil. If you really want to you can, but a better option might be Lion Heart liquid or their very own Super Hero for kids.
As recommended by Leon Taylor
"Simply the best fish oil about. I was delighted when they released Maxi capsules, allowing you to take just 2 a day. I’ve used the brand for several years now and I can definitely feel the difference."
We test all our products three times. One of the tests is completely independent and we publish all of our results for every batch. Transparency and quality are at the heart of all we do.
No pork or beef gelatin in our capsules
Most other capsules use pork or beef gelatin. Not us – only fish. And we don't add unnecessary flavouring either. Our fish oil is so fresh we don’t need to.
