    The Omega 3 has helped my blood work results continue to be excellent!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Cooper Complete has the highest levels of DHA and EPA (heart and brain protection)and the b12 is an essential for mode and energy enhancement. I love both products.

    I have been taking the Cooper Omega 3 for several years and I believe it to be the balanced supplement in its category at a very good price. Additionally the service from the Cooper Store has been outstanding and makes ordering an ease.

    The Cooper Omega -3 Fatty Acid gel capsules come at a great price. The BEST part is there is no “after burner”/burping that comes with many of the other brands on the market.

    Product is always quality. I use Cooper Complete products because I know I can trust the quality. I became a user back when Dr. Cooper had the radio show and explained the process by which the supplements are made. Order process couldn’t be any easier to adjust in the auto ship program. Thanks.

    I find it ironic that you sent me an email asking me to review my recent purchase, because I have yet to receive it! So I guess the purchase part sucks – surely you wouldn’t be sending me an email to review unless you thought I had received my order. I ordered last week, but according to the tracking number I just checked it won’t arrive until next week. Thanks for wasting my time.

    • I apologize that you received an email asking you for a product review before you actually received the product. It appears that even though you live near Austin, the shipping service we use (SmartPost, a collaborative service between FedEx and USPS) sends shipments to your area through their Houston hub; which caused a delay due to Hurricane Harvey. In reviewing your previous order, it was also routed through the Houston hub, but arrived in three (3) business days. While the delay in delivery was weather related and beyond our control, I completely understand your frustration in the delivery taking so long. In light of the extenuating circumstances, I hope you will order from us again and continue to use our products.

    I have been taking Cooper Complete supplements for many years and rarely have a day of not feeling good. I don’t know how I would feel if I didn’t take them so I follow the old adage of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

    I have been taking these Advanced Omega 3 gel capsules for about 3 years now and am very happy with them. Thanks to these and the Cooper Complete vitamins, my annual bloodwork always looks good and my health is stable — my doctor is happy, too. As I age, I want to ensure I am doing good things for my body and the Cooper products give me that assurance.

    I love the product and will more than likely continue to have it shipped to me automatically. However, there have been problems with shipping for the past two deliveries. I have run out of the product before my next shipment comes. I actually had to contact the company to inquire what has happened. I hope this is not a pattern.

    • Hi Laurie,
      I am glad you like the product but am sorry that you have run out of product before your next shipment arrived. I have made a note in my trace file to follow your next couple of orders to make sure they ship when they are scheduled, after all auto shipments are supposed to make it easier for you to keep the product in stock.

    Very satisfied with the Advanced Omega-3 from Cooper Complete, except for one thing. I live in the Las Vegas area, ordered them in June, and for the second consecutive year this product arrived as one congealed lump, instead of sixty individual, loose capsules. I put the bottles in the refrigerator, then when cold, banged them sharply against the counter to free things up a bit. I should with considerable effort be able to pry the capsules apart and effectively take them, but my advice is if you live in a hot summer weather climate, order at least six months worth of these in the spring to avoid having them arrive in a clump as happened to me. Other than that, the product is aces.

    • Thank you for your comment regarding the Omega 3 sticking together. It is the nature of soft gels to stick together some and the heat does intensify the effect. While we do ship to Nevada, Arizona, and other hot places over the summer, my guess is that since your order was shipped over the 4th of July weekend, it may have spent extra time in the heat during shipping. I am glad that you are able to get them apart, but if you have any issues I am happy to send you a replacement bottle; perhaps to an office location so they won’t sit outside.

    I’ve been using the Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 for a decade now. They are without a doubt the best fish oil supplements on the market. No other supplement contains 1200 mg of EPA & DHA at such a great price. They have been an essential component in my nutrition & fitness routine as they keep my cholesterol & triglyceride levels low and benefit my eye health.

    I have been taking Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 to help control my triglycerides for years at the recommendation of my internist. He took it and and said it was the best Omega-3 that you could take without having to have a prescription.

    I have faith in Dr. Cooper and that alone is the reason I use this product. Have used for years with no adverse effect. But I can’t say if the product does any good or if it’s well made as I’m not a doctor or a scientist. Unless you can test the contents of the supplement how can you offer an intelligent opinion. The medical community is undecided on whether or not this supplement works or if you should just take in a lot of salmon and tuna. But if you are going to take an Omega 3 supplement this is definitely the one to use.

    • Hi Hugh,

      Thank you for your comments. We are so glad to hear that you are pleased with Advanced Omega-3 and confident in the Cooper Complete brand. Cooper Clinic, as well as the American Heart Association, recommends consuming regular amounts of fatty fish like salmon – at least two servings per week. However, in the United States, men generally only get 50% and women only get 40% of the omega-3s they need daily. There is extensive research supporting supplemental omega-3 for optimal health. If you are interested in learning more about the science, check out this article and infographic – How Much Fish Do You Need? ( If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. Thanks again!

    When we last saw Dr. McFarlin in October, he told my husband he needed more Omega-3, so rather than what we had been using, I have switched to ordering Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3.

    My doctor who is Dr. Gunn recommended I switch to Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3. I am so impressed with the perfect excellence of this particular supplement. I feel better, have more energy and my blood tests finally have come to a superior level. I can not say enough of the worthiness of physicians formula Cooper Complete Omega-3. It is one of Cooper Compete supplements I take as part of Dr. Gunn’s Longevity program.

    I really like Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 because it doesn’t leave an awful, fishy aftertaste. I tolerate it well! Also, most importantly to me is that I am using a high quality product.

    I can honestly say that Cooper Complete Elite Athlete and Cooper Complete Original multivitamins are a must for all the expeditions I go on. As a climber in remote areas, we often eat foods that lack the vitamins that are in fresh fruits and vegetables. Without the vitamins we take – usually Cooper Complete Iron Free, sometimes Cooper Complete Elite Athlete, along with Advanced Omega-3 – we would be doing serious harm to ourselves. We certainly feel better when we take them, and we get sick less often when we are taking them. I recommend these products. They’ve made me feel better, and I don’t worry about my long term health as much as I used to knowing the harm I’m doing to my body when I go on these expeditions. Thank you for making supplements that have been thoroughly researched and that really do work.

    I take Cooper Complete supplements because I trust Dr. Cooper. Before Cooper Complete, I never knew which vitamins to take. I can work out at a higher level than I ever thought possible and I hardly ever get sick.

Product Details

Product Description

Omega-3 fatty acids have been widely studied, and with more than 27,000 published studies on the benefits of omega-3s, omega-3 fatty acids are one of the most studied nutrients in the world. The fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are long-chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring and lake trout, and algea. ALA (alpha linolenic acid), a third type of omega-3 fatty acid is a short-chain plant based omega-3 fatty acid found in walnuts, flax and chia seeds, and canola and soybean oil. When consumed, the body converts the short-chain plant based ALA omega-3 fatty acid into the longer-chain forms of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, but the conversion is poor. For this reason, we recommend consumption of fatty fish as the best way to get omega-3 fatty acids through food.

Heart Health

Omega-3 fatty acids are best known for their heart health benefits, and the American Heart Association recommends eating fish, particularly fatty fish, at least two times a week. Omega-3s support healthy heart rhythm and decrease the risk of abnormal heartbeats, called arrhythmia, which can lead to sudden death. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids slow atherosclerosis, a disease characterized by fatty build up of plaque in the arteries, and omega-3 fatty acids reduce  triglyceride levels. Researched published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research found that participants who consumed 760 mg EPA and 440 mg DHA per day for 12 weeks reduced triglycerides by 23 percent.†

Brain Health

Omega-3 fatty acids are also good for brain health and cognition.† PsychiatryOnline has almost 300 studies related to scientific research on the impact of omega-3s and mental health, and the Omega-3 fatty acid subcommittee, assembled by the Committee on Research on Psychiatric Treatments of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recommends adults eat fish two or more times per week, and patients with mood, impulse control or psychotic disorders consume one gram (1,000 milligrams) EPA + DHA (combined) per day.

Inflammatory Health

Omega-3 fatty acids also reduce inflammation. Whether the inflammation is due to an autoimmune disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, or Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a skin condition such as Rosacea, Psoriasis, or Eczema, or a more general inflammatory conditions such as bad knees, neck pain or tennis elbow, omega-3s fight inflammation.†

Despite the enormous health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, it is estimated that in the United States, men only get 50 percent and women only get 40 percent of the omega-3 fatty acids they need on a daily basis.

Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 fatty acids delivers more EPA and DHA than many brands, with 1,200 mg EPA and DHA combined in each two softgel serving.

In the photos above, check out the You Need More Omega-3s infographic and The Keys to Omega-3 fatty acids infographic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to refrigerate the Omega-3 product once I have opened the bottle?

No, there is no need to refrigerate this product. However, refrigeration does reduce the stickiness of the softgels, which may make them slightly easier to swallow. Whether you refrigerate or not, keep the bottle closed tightly, and store out of direct sunlight and away from humid and warm environments.

What are EPA and DHA?

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are vital nutrients for humans. They naturally occur in fish and seafood and work together in the human body. Because EPA and DHA cannot be synthesized by humans, they must be consumed through diet or supplements. Thousands of published clinical research trials illustrate how the decline in dietary intake of these long chain omega-3s is adversely affecting our health and longevity today. Omega-3 EPA and DHA intake is strongly related to longevity and survival. In fact, low intake of EPA and DHA along with high intake of salt and trans fats are the top 3 dietary factors most closely related to mortality today. Consuming as little as 250 mg EPA and DHA (500 mg total) per day has been shown to significantly improve survival in adults with and without known heart conditions

I’ve heard that ALA is an omega-3. Why is ALA not included in Advanced Omega-3?

ALA (alpha linolenic acid) is an omega-3 fat found in plants, (e.g. walnuts and flax). ALA does not perform the same biological functions as EPA and DHA, and while it is considered a precursor to longer chain EPA and DHA, research indicates it converts poorly (about 5% to EPA and less than 1% to DHA) and is not a reliable source of EPA and DHA.

I’ve heard that omega-3 can come in several different forms. What form is Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3?

Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 is concentrated fish oil in the triglyceride (TG) form for optimal absorption.

I am allergic to fish. Is it OK for me to take this product?

No. You should not take Advanced Omega-3 if you are allergic to fish.

I already eat a lot of fish. Should I take this fish oil supplement?

If you eat four or more servings of fatty types of fish per week – such as salmon, trout, sardines or mackerel – you may not need additional omega-3 in your diet.

Is it safe to consume Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 supplements if I suffer from atrial fibrillation?

Yes. Studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death by stabilizing the rhythm of the heart.

Why does Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 contain soy?

To prevent oxidation of the bulk fish oil, we add an antioxidant blend to the steam deodorized fish oils. This antioxidant blend is the source of the soy you see listed on the Advanced Omega-3 supplements facts panel. The antioxidant blend is present in very small amounts in the bulk oil (typically 5.0 mg/g) and the soy makes up only a portion of this blend.

Are there purines in Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3?

Purines are nitrogen-containing compounds that can be broken down in the human body to form uric acid. If the kidneys can’t effectively remove uric acid from the blood stream, the blood becomes saturated with it at which point the uric acid begins to crystallize in joints, most often in the big toe. Gout is the medical term for uric acid crystallization in joints and the accompanying symptoms of inflammation and severe pain. One component of controlling this disease is to consume a low purine diet. While anchovies and sardines contain moderate to high levels of purines, fish oils derived from these species that are high in omega-3 fatty acids are often recommended because of their anti-inflammatory properties. Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 is highly refined, and when used as directed, should not be a significant source of purines. However, we have not tested for the presence of purines in our fish oil.

Is Cooper Complete Advanced Omega-3 cold pressed?

No. “Cold press” is a term usually reserved for manufacturing of olive oils. However, our product does undergo a winterization/cold filtration process. Similar to when we heat butter and put it in the refrigerator, the cold filtration process removes the solid part (stearines), leaving an esthetically pleasing product/oil (especially for those who refrigerate their capsules).

Can I take this product if I am also taking Coumadin or Warfarin?

If you are taking Coumadin or Warfarin, we recommend consulting your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.
