  • Award winning product for innovation in omega-3 supplements!

  • DPA offers the missing link in complete omega-3 essential fatty acid nutrition

  • Higher blood levels of DPA have been associated with better health

  • Derived from freshly-harvested menhaden fish oil

While most people now recognize the value of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, it turns out there is another fatty acid that may be equally important. It's called docosapentaenoic acid, or DPA, and emerging research suggests it plays a critical role in helping other fatty acids work inside the body while providing its own unique benefits as well. Different fish oils contain varying levels of DPA, which may explain the difference in benefits noted in scientific research.

Common fish oils used in supplements, such as sardine and salmon oil, often feature 3% DPA at most, while others measure less than 1%. A recipient of an industry award for innovation in omega-3 supplementation, OmegaActiv™ is made with high-DPA menhaden, a little known fish in the herring family that boasts nearly 5% DPA along with clinically relevant levels of EPA and DHA. Swanson EFAs OmegaActiv is 70% omega-3, delivering 450 mg DHA, 85 mg DPA and 45 mg EPA in every 1,000 mg softgel. If you're taking another fish oil supplement, you could be missing an important part of the omega-3 equation. Make the switch to OmegaActiv for complete essential fatty acid nutrition.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why is this my favorite fish oil? Because firstly it has a very high amount of DHA per softgel. I know DHA is good for my brain and eyes as I am getting older. Secondly, it has DPA omega-3. This is very hard to find! Most fish oil products only have EPA and DHA. DPA is a versatile omega-3 supporting the body. And thirdly, I looked up the brand of fish oil "OmegaActiv" and know that it is made with USA caught wild fish and made in the USA. Most other fish oils are caught and made overseas. Those are the reasons I take one every day. Great product, thank you Swanson! June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this fish oil! In fish oil i look for one that does not have an after taste or upset my stomach, as some do. i have never had either problem with this kind. i also look for a high DHA content. with 1 softgel, it gives you almost 500 mgs of DHA. this fish oil also contains DPA which many do not. July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard to find...FOUND! I was happy to find this product with the higher DPA ratio, as it can be hard to find without paying MUCH more! Thanks again, Swanson's! February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value I have been taking fish oil for many years with an emphasis on DHA since I read a book by a researcher and have experienced benefits. I ordered this product as it has almost as much DHA (450 mg) as the DHA product (500 mg), but there are twice as many softgels for the price. I can not yet determine any personal benefits from the DPA but this is my first order. December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for you This potent fish oil is easy to take and we all need it. October 9, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by DPA levels the DPA amounts in this product (86 mg) are low when compared to the EPA (300mg) and DHA (200) levels in a similar product (Super EPA). in that product, the softgels are recommended to be taken twice a day. since this product costs around twice as much as Swanson's Super EPA, you're getting 600mg (six times as much) of EPA and 400mg of DHA ((four times as much) in Super EPA for the same price as the 86mg in Super DPA (which doesn't seem so super to me). I am really curious about this discrepancy. although the label disclaimer on both products states that no daily value has been established for any of these fatty acids, I'm curious how the number 86 was arrived at? was it due to the expense of the manufacturing process, or is it truly what Swanson believes its customers need? this is my third attempt to rate this product so I hope it goes through this time...or that I at least get an official response. thank you.
