    I have been reading about people taking fish oil because of the Omega 3. I was wondering what a good product was. Thanks in advance

  2. I get mine in capsules at Target. I know it sounds strange to say go buy your supplements at Target, BUT fish oil is about 60% cheaper there than at GNC (its about 10 bucks for 200 capsules).

    Here's info to get you started:

    http://www.qualitycounts.com/fpfattyacids.html

    http://www.drumlib.com/supp/prod/fish-oil_01.htm

    Highest quality would probably be PBL PureOmega3, with the cheapest price for it at 1fast400.com. The stats are 430/230 for 1000mg, but the caps are 1200mg giving 516/276 per cap.

    The SuperEPA from Puritan's Pride is higher-than-normal quality as well (300/200) and quite a bit cheaper if you do the "buy 1 get 1 free" or "buy 2 get 3 free"

    Twinlab's Mega Twin EPA has the highest % of EPA+DHA, but also has cholesterol, which is supposed to be a good indicator that molecular distillation (which removes the heavy metals) wasn't used for purification.
    vitacost.com or http://store.yahoo.com/iherb/twinepa.html

    I'll post the data from my spreadsheet, but not sure if the formatting will come out right. Any corrections or price updates are always appreciated.

    Just as a further note, Puritan's Pride is having a 'buy 1 get 2 free' sale, which applies to their SuperEPA product among others.

    I haven't figured shipping in, but ignoring shipping it comes out to be $0.10 / gram EPA+DHA, which is the cheapest 'higher-quality' capped product I've seen.

    higher-quality being anything more than the normal 180/120 mix.

    Hope this helps,
    Brian
