Mega Red claims to be specially formulated to be stronger than other krill oil supplements. It also suggests that it's blend of krill oil and fish oil makes all the difference. It really doesn't.
Customers Megared reviews are positive enough, which we'd expect, they're fish oil pills, they work. As long as they're delivered and people knew what they were paying for we wouldn't expect the customers reviews of mega red to be unfavorable. A couple of people complained of diarrhea, but this can happen with high concentration fish oil. As always, you also shouldn't take Omega oil if you're on medication to lower blood pressure as omega supplements can lower it further.
Answers to the most commonly asked questions in Mega Red Reviews
The only difference between the two fish oil capsules is that Mega Red Advanced Total Body Plus also contains 30mg of lutein  which is a good enough dosage for eye health, but it isn't likely to do so much that you could reasonably call it a full body supplement. With the price point coming in at around $60 for a months supply, it's pretty outrageously priced. Especially when compared against the competition, especially the likes of Flexagain, which contain more omega 3, and a dozen other correctly dosed ingredients at the same price point as MegaRed.
This is going to be a relatively short ingredients section by the standards of our other reviews, the only ingredient being fish oil. It's a slightly above average quality fish oil, however this really doesn't make much difference against standard fish oil, it increases abosrbability by single digits in terms of a percentage, but the likes of relief factor and flexagain have 1100mg of Omega 3 using standard fish oil and algae oils which more than makes up the difference.
The capsule quality is high, but again this doesn't make all too much difference, most other standard fish oil capsules are of a good quality now as well.
One thing Mega Red Advanced Formula does well is it does list the exact DHA and EPA total, but it's still below the recommended RDI. 1100mg of oil being the recommended recommended daily intake of omega oils.  And once again there are similarly priced competitor supplements that contain 1100mg of omega 3 oils which equates to around 700mg of the fatty acids rather that Megared advanced 4in1's example of 350mg. Whilst the percentage is a little bit lower, the overall volume of these fatty acids is better in the competition.
In short there are plenty of other fish oil capsules which are as good if not better, and the high concentration fish oil is pretty much standard at this point.
As they don't specify the exact blend of DHA or EPA we can't specify whether it's better for joints or brain health, but the difference here is pretty minimal anyway assuming it's not 99% one or the other.
There's also the fact that there really isn't much benefit in krill oil vs algae oil, other than the fact that krill oil is cheaper to produce, although the supplements companies really don't seem to pass this saving on to the customers.
Mega Red do offer a vegan alternative to their fish oil pills, and these are fine as well. Nothing wrong with them other than the fact that they're overpriced and a higher dosage of omega 3 oils would be recommended for vegans due to their lacking it in their diet.
Beyond Omega oils use for joint comfort and brain health, Omega 3 also seems to have impact on heart health with recent studies showing reduced risk of coronary heart disease, although this is still to be completely confirmed it looks very likely.
This really isn't much of a contest, they're functionally the same thing, despite what their marketing campaigns would like you to believe. Yes Omega 3 is good for you, but you'd still be better buying a cheaper supplement. Or if you absolutely want to buy one of these two we'd recommend that you simply buy whatever is cheaper. They're both omega 3 fish oil, neither supports brain health more than the other in any meaningful way, they're both good for your joints and there really isn't much in the "special combination" that they both claim other than some marketing fluff.
Megared advanced 4in1 is overpriced for what it is, it's mostly marketing over substance, that's not to say that there's anything wrong with it. It's fine, and it will certainly function well enough as a standard fish oil supplement, but the implication of 4 in 1 suggests Megared is more than it actually is. There are supplements with a combination of high concentration fish oil and high doses of other joint and brain supplements included as well for the same price point so we can't recommend Megared.
