health-related investigation that's been taking place for the past couple of years. the information i will provide you during the course of this show is relevant to everyone's health and well-being. several years ago, i was introduced to ken meares, founder and c.e.o. of great healthworks. this man has dedicated his career to improving health and fitness, and he created a product called omega xl, a patented, all-natural omega-3 supplement that relieves pain due to inflammation and is supported by over 30 years of clinical research. as you all know, i would rarely become associated with any product, as i've built a lifetime career on being an independent investigative news anchor. but there was something intriguing about ken and omega xl that drew my interest. today we'll talk with ken meares, along with dr. sharon mcquillan, a board-certified physician specializing in preventative
we're going to discuss why omega xl is so important to your health and your quality of life. all this and more coming up next on a larry king special report update. >> announcer: pain can ruin your day. the biggest problem to your body is inflammatory-related conditions. almost one in three americans will suffer from chronic pain in their lifetime. we are living longer than ever before, which can cause wear and tear to our bodies. nearly 70% of americans are taking prescription medication. every day, people suffer from aches and pains from everyday activities, including back, neck, knee, and joints. if you want to fight inflammation and pain, stay with us. >> welcome to the larry king special report update. i want to introduce mr. ken meares. he's the founder and c.e.o. of great healthworks, the makers of omega xl. when we first met, i was not interested much in omega xl.
i take two every morning, two every night. i know, when i take this, it works. do we know how it works? >> yes. it's a one-of-a-kind oil extract with 30 years of science and research. >> how did you discover it? >> my passion is health and fitness and wellness. i've been in the health and fitness business for a long time, but, in 2002, i discovered this oil extract, created omega xl, and we're here today with you. >> i used to get joint pain every morning. i'd get up and i'd, "oy." nothing. no pain at all. i get up and i'm ready to go. why is this happening to me? >> this little teeny softgel has the meat of 10 to 12 green-lipped mussel from the waters of new zealand. many say it's the cleanest waters in the world. long. takes 18 months to get to the perfect size -- about 4 inches. we then harvest them. we take them to our own facility. the mussel is then opened.
the meat is put through a process. and after that process, it goes to our extraction plant. and that oil extract has over 30 years of clinical research and trials. omega xl works. >> might be called a powerful little package. >> it is a very powerful omega-3 with 30 different essential fatty acids. it'll outperform fish oil over and over, hands down. and tests and studies prove that. >> now, what makes new zealand special? >> the waters of new zealand are considered the cleanest waters in the world. >> really? >> pure and cold. and this is a green-lipped mussel -- it's not a fish -- where many fish oils or fish products, omega-3s come from waters around the world that are certainly a lot less than clean. some are pretty bad. but you have no idea where the oil comes from. when fish oil manufacturers are making fish oil for human consumption and they get the fish, the meat of the fish is often sent to restaurants or to
and then whatever's left over -- the head, the tail, the eyes, the bones, the gills -- they grind all that up, then they boil that, and then they put it in a pill, and you're swallowing that. >> you got me involved in this. i was a skeptic. admit it. >> you were a skeptic. came to your house. >> "this is it." >> as you said last time, your team -- your handlers, like you said, your army... >> my army. >> ...around you -- they said, "oh, no, no, larry can just say this is good." i went, "oh, no, no, no, no, no. he has to take it. if it works for him, then we want to work with him." and you said, "and why do you want me to do it?" and here's the answer. because you are larry king. do you know why? in the last two years, larry, hundreds of thousands of people who were suffering with joint-related pain because of inflammation are taking this product because of you. and what we do -- we tell them the candid truth. omega xl relieves joint pain due to inflammation, and that's one much. that bottle cannot talk for itself.
to, and you've changed hundreds of thousands of people's lives. >> i hear from people all the time, because i enjoy connecting people with something that works and that can help them. when we come back, we're going to get an expert update in the field of medicine and medical research on the growing list of omega-3 benefits in omega xl. do not go away. >> announcer: do you suffer from swelling or joint paint in your back, neck, knees, or elbows? have you tried taking fish oil but have not seen results? has the burden of pain taken over your quality of life? when you experience discomfort, that's all you can think of. don't give up and accept living a life with pain. if you are ready to find relief, try omega xl. this natural anti-inflammatory is effective at relieving pain and the symptoms of inflammation. omega xl is not fish oil, so it does not share its side effects or fishy aftertaste.
