Flameout® Inflammation Scavenger contains the most potent and purest DHA and EPA triglycerides. These Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated from fish oil, purified by molecular distillation, and stringently tested for PCBs, dioxins, mercury, and other heavy-metal contaminates. Flameout® fish oil is self-emulsifying, making it better absorbed and virtually odorless with no aftertaste. And it's double or triple the potency of most fish oil.*

Men Need A Better Fish Oil

Fatty acid supplements typically contain more EPA than DHA. Why? Because fish naturally contain more EPA than DHA. That's fine for females because the biosynthesis of DHA is a lot higher in women than it is in men.* DHA reduces triglycerides and blood pressure, and according to at least one study, increases HDL (the good cholesterol) by a whopping 29%. In contrast, EPA decreases HDL by 6.7%.*

The problem is men have a much higher risk of heart disease. Men also have lower amounts of DHA, despite eating the same amount of fatty acids as women. As such, men need more DHA than EPA.* Flameout® fish oil is still an excellent choice for women, but unlike other omega-3 supplements, it's formulated specifically for the physiology needs of men.*

250% More DHA

Flameout® fish oil contains 250% more DHA than EPA. Here are the amounts per dose:*

  • DHA 2200 mg
  • EPA 880 mg

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) stimulates fat burning, decreases fat storage, and reduces body fat when taken in sufficient amounts.* It also significantly reduces natural inflammation by inhibiting COX-2. Learn More

Omega-3 DHA-Rich Fish Oil

Omega-3 DHA-rich fish oil is an extra-potent blend of DHA, EPA, and CLA for improving cardiovascular health and reducing systemic inflammation.* The formula contains 250% more DHA. DHA has distinct advantages over EPA decreasing triglycerides and blood pressure and increasing HDL (the good cholesterol).* Learn More

  • Take four softgels per day with food.

Can I take all four softgels at once, or can I divide them up?

Taking the softgels with food is the important thing. Some users take one softgel with every meal and a snack, while others take all four at once, usually with their largest meal.

Good and bad

I've used Flameout for years, never an issue. I do have an issue, however, with Biotest not fulfilling my other outstanding subscriptions. Customer service used to be great, now I'm still waiting on my other subscription to be filled since November. Five stars for Flameout, 1 star for not filling my other subscription, so 3 stars.

Best inflammation fighter ever - ready to go next day after grueling workouts

Lori R.

Excellent product.

I’ve been buying Flameout for a few years and I’ve tried other fish oils in between but it’s never the same. My body just feels better when I take this stuff. I never really notice a difference in how I feel with other brands but I can always taste them. And it’s not always specifically fishy but just a bad after taste burp. I don’t get that with Flameout. I also had a baby 4 months ago, I took it throughout my entire pregnancy and just started again postpartum. I’m in pretty good shape but my body has ached bad since giving birth and within a few days of getting back on the Flameout my overall body pain has reduced significantly. Enough to mention it to my husband. I don’t even bother with other fish oils anymore and I recommend flameout to everyone. PLEASE DON’T CHANGE THE FORMULA. :)

Flameout FTW!

As far as Fish oils go, this is the gold standard if it was only for the "no fish burps" I tried freezing and taking with meals the other guys. Flameout is where it's at. My joints feel better, chronic tendonitis is better, and I swear I recover faster from the brutal leg days and deadlift days! Flameout is always in my supplement regimen!

Best in class

Gets the inflammation out the body more naturally…… ivy’s and ad’s n many nsaids in the body continuously is no way…. Healthy…. Haven’t found a better fish oil supplement, and I’ve been taking some type of supplement since 1993, when I wanted to get fit to join the service

First place

Flame out flat out gets the inflammation out…. I suffer from it on one side of my body, but when I have a constant supply of this supplement my aches disappear, plus I’m getting healthy oils for my heart and body, the price indeed is steep, but I haven’t found another product like this….under fish oil.

Great quality!!

We are older and needed a high quality supplement of fish oil. We showed this to our doctor and he indicated it was very high quality and gave it his full approval!!

Quality Product

I'm never sure how to rate an individual supplement among the several I take daily. I began taking Flameout shortly after it came out and it seems like a quality product. I am 72 and have fought through cancer with all the radiation, chemo, and body changing surgeries. Despite this I still lift weights, bike ride, or brisk walk 5 to 6 days a week and have a positive outlook on life. Surely Flameout plays an integral part in all of this.

Flameout is one of the best fish oils on the market. I also received a damaged bottle in the mail(fish caps Melted in the bottle from a heat wave) and biotest stood behind there product and shipped me a new bottle asap. Great product and a great company.
