CONTROLLED LABS - Orange OxiMega™ FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions)


http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/144/orangeoxsmall.png


Where can I purchase Orange OxiMega™ and how much will it cost ?


Internet retailers will have the best prices (around $37.99 for the combination kit and around $17.99 for the Fish Oil portion solo):
http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/clabs/clabs.htm


How many servings per bottle ?


60 of each product

How many servings per day ?


1-2

So... how many days will each bottle last ?


30-60 days

Can I stack Orange TRIad with this?


Absolutely, that was the intention as a foundational overall health stack for serious lifters and athletes

Does Orange OxiMega™ replace proper nutrition, training, and cardio ?


No, although it will help to fill the gaps in your diet to a tremendous degree

Is Orange OxiMega™ for men or women ?


Both

Does Orange OxiMega™ replace fish, veggies and fruit in my diet?


Yes, it can replace part of your requirements. However, you should continue to consume these as part of your diet as well.


I'm on medication or I have a health condition, should I take Orange OxiMega™ ?


It will most likely be fine, but to be safe, ask your doctor before taking Orange OxiMega™

Is it necessary to cycle Orange OxiMega™ ?


No, Cycling is not required since this is an overall health supplement that should be looked at as part of your diet itself

Is Orange OxiMega™ tablets, capsules or powder? ?


The Fish Oil component is enteric coated citrus flavored softgels and the greens component is spearmint flavored powder

How come the fish oil component of Orange OxiMega™ is only 2 softgels per serving, my current fish oil is 4-6 per serving?


Our softgels contain a very potent dose of dha/epa per softgel, so you have to take fewer softgels (and fat) to get the same content with Orange OxiMega™

What does enteric coating mean?


Enteric coating is used so that the softgels down break down until later in the GI tract. The benefit is that the oil wont come up on you and give you fish burps.

Why are the Orange OxiMega™ fish oil softgels flavored?


Let's be honest, fish oil stinks, literally. the pleasant citrus flavor and smell makes it a pleasure, instead of a hassle, to get your daily fish oil

Will the Orange OxiMega™ fish oil component also be available on its own?


It sure will be, but its a much better deal to get the combo kit as green supplements cost 35-40 dollars most of the time, which makes the fish oil component basically free when purchased as a kit

How many servings of fruit and veggies does Orange OxiMega™ greens component have per serving?


Each serving contains roughly 5 servings of veggies and 2 servings of fruit

What are the enzymes and probiotics in Orange OxiMega™ designed to accomplish?


Those complexes will help aid your digestion of the high calorie diet you are most likely on if you are lifting or an athlete

What is the Cardiovascular (Nitrate Donor) complex in Orange OxiMega™ intended to do?


This complex includes root and leafy green vegetables that are known to be the highest in natural nitrate levels. Nitrate containing vegetables have been shown to increase heart and vascular health via enhanced nitric oxide levels

What color should the greens portion of Orange OxiMega™ be?


The powder is almost a dark green/brown color and will mix a bit darker. The high level of red beet root powder produces a darker color than most other greens product

How much water should I mix the greens portion of Orange OxiMega™ with?


Most people prefer 3-6 ounces of cold water in a quick refreshing shot. The flavor is a great minty/spearmint taste.

Should either be taken with food? or can you just mix the powder into your supplements?


It is best to take both with solid food meals

Many people don’t realize the crucial effects that overall health supplements can play on their training. Without the essential nutrients your body needs to survive and flourish, it cannot build a strong foundation that is so crucial to lean mass gains. Orange OxiMega™ was designed to help you establish a strong, healthful, foundation on which to base your training, diet and supplementation. Coupled together with Orange TRIad™, you will have all of your overall health requirements exceeded including omegas, vitamins, minerals, fruit, vegetables, digestive support, immune support, joint support, and cardiovascular support.

Orange OxiMega™ is comprised of two products in every box. The first is a very high potency Nordic fish oil product that is 60% DHA/EPA. This is an extremely high level which allows for the overall consumption of less fat and cholesterol from your omega intake. Not only are these Nordic fish oil softgels a nutritional masterpiece, but they are enteric coated and citrus flavored so they smell/taste very good and you will not get any regurgitation (fish oil burps) that is common with cheaper more crude fish oil formulations. Our Nordic fish oil is also free from all contaminants and is molecularly protected with the inclusion of vitamin E so you can be assured of the utmost quality.

The second component of Orange OxiMega™ is a true sports greens product, which is the first of its kind. This is no ordinary greens product; it has additional complexes geared towards real athletes. The “Cardiovascular Complex” is full of nitrate donor vegetables, including a potent dose of red beet root, which have been shown to increase endurance, nitric oxide levels and cardiovascular health in exercising humans in a clinical setting. The key to these vegetables are the nitrates that are found in them and illicit this effect when they come in contact with the human tongue and GI tract. The enzyme, probiotic and anti-oxidant blends will help the body absorb and utilize the highest level of nutrients from your diet and supplementation for maximum results. Not only is this greens formulation healthful, but it tastes delicious too with its 100% naturally flavored spearmint without the use of any artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors (the product will mix a dark green/brown color due to the high level of red beet root in the formula).

Establish a STRONG foundation for maximum gains in the GYM and in LIFE with Orange OxiMega™!

I want to say that i really like how the greens product has stevia in it as opposed to artificial sweeteners. Is controlled labs considering changing this in all there products? This is the only thing that worries be about taking supplements, the artificial sweeteners.

Thats unfortunate because stevia is good! Is it hard mixing it with powders? Because my natural whey tastes much better than the regular and its the same price.

Interesting idea. I myself just cant see that tasting well but hopefully im wrong. I guess it depends on the person. Some love mint and some dont. That sure would make a healthy shake though

This will be awesome since I don't get a lot of fruits in my diet, and lately ive backed off on the greens when i used to eat a ton :/ oh well.

Hey guys, looking to make the switch over to the oximega kit, however, I have a few questions about the fish oil product.

I am currently using Now Ultra Omega-3; It has:

Serving size = 1 softgel

Amount per serving:
1,000mg of Natural Fish Oil Concentrate
750mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
->500mg of EPA
->250mg of DHA
Other ingredients include (gelatin, glycerin, water and enteric coating)
*contains 2 IU of vitamin E per serving


The controlled labs fish oil has:

Serving size = 2 softgels

Amount per serving:
2000mg of Total omega-3 fatty acids
->800mg of EPA
->400mg of DHA
->800mg of Mixed Fatty Acids
Other ingredients include (Hydroxypropryl Methylcellulose, Citrus Flavor, Gelatin, Glycerin, and Water)
*contains 20 IU of vitamin E per serving

My first question is: What exactly are the "mixed fatty acids"? (With the Now Ultra Omega-3 there is 1000mg of natural fish oil concentrate, would this be the same thing as the mixed fatty acids in the CL product...just listed differently?) I am just curious as to why one product has 1,000mg of concentrate, and one has none...but adds a category of mixed fatty acids.

My second question is: Am I correct that the Hydroxypropryl Methylcellulose is just the scientific compound for "enteric coating"?

My third question is: Any reason for the high level of vitamin E content per serving (~7% dv compared to ~67% dv)?

Really looking forward to trying this kit out once I get this info cleared up...just trying to gain some more insight on whats what, thanks!

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose is part of the coating, it is a less harsh way of enteric coating the softgel.

mixed fatty acids is the remainder of the fish oil that is not dha or epa, all fish oils have this but may call it something different.

the vitamin E is important as it helps the fish oil avoid turning rancid.
