    Believe it or not, I have had some VERY unpleasant fish oil caps. We went with the absolute highest quality at a good price we could find, but it is always helpful to get as much feedback as possible.

    Some of the brands I have tried taste like rancid french hooker...umm, not that I would know what that tastes like...DAMN!!

    That profile does look very similar to a local membership bulk provider's in house brand but your price does beat it by a $2.50 for the 1000

    Are you guys thinking about getting any liquid fish oil ? I'd rather take 1 tablespoon than all those softgels. I don't mind the burp either, it gives me an excuse to be rude when others annoy me.

    The liquid can be flavored too. Vitamin shop is lemon lime and there's Barlene's brand that is orange flavored. Easier to take than pills for me.

    I tried it and it's good but the price is pretty high when compared to other products. I even liked Carlson's Cod Liver Oil which my dad says used to taste like vomit when his mom made him take it as a kid.

    My problem with fish oil is the question of purity. Dsade has severally confirmed that NutraPlanet's Bulk Fish Oil is of very high purity, so this should not be an issue. I will definitely try the Bulk Fish Oil, once my current stock is depleted.

    I currently use Life Extension's Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with 35%/25% ratio of EPA/DHA. Also contains sesame seed lignan extract, rosemary extract, and olive oil extract. A fairly advanced fish-oil supplement. Also relatively "expensive", in terms of cash outlay.

    I think the rosemary is added to halt any peroxidation/oxidation of the product as well as the usual benefits once ingested.

    I use 2-3 tablespoons of the Carlson's cod liver oil per day and it makes me feel alllllright.

    dsade, can you post up the supplement facts, such as how many mgs of EPA and DHA per serving, serving size, how many grams of fat per cap, etc.?

    Maybe post up something similar to this? Thanks

    It's 180 EPA and 120 DHA AM07. It's 1,000mg per pill. That's about the same as most other fish oil products. Very few have higher EPA & DHA concentrations per pill but they jack up the price a little too much for that convenience.

    Ok, cool. My NOW fish oil caps have the same amount of ingredients, so I'll be switching over to bulk fish oil caps.

    Yeah, I have to fork out the higher price for NOW's Super EPA concentrated caps because my wife whines about taking too many pills.

    with high quality fish oil I was hoping to see some reviews stating improved joint health, weight loss, or mood enhancement.....

    Can't say "no fish burps" are much of a review... Could you guys be a LITTLE more specific?

    FTR Carlson's reviews are full of such reports and has been considered the supplement's "high standard" for some time. Any one having tried both have anything interesting to compare/contrast?

    This is Triglyceride FO and not Ethyl Ester, right Ds?

    Correct.

    Then again with fish oils, they are pretty much staple supps...everyone is well aware of the benefits. I was hoping to see more people playing with various dosing protocols, and reviewing in that context.

    Staple as in where most people never come off and take the benefits for granted. I couldn't afford Carlson's for several weeks recently and man, did my mindset go downhill fast.

    Absolutely...the mental and physical benefits (especially in the most common Western diets) are highly underrated...but at the same time well known.

    Nobody should NOT be taking fish oil.

    So how many do you all recommend taking per day? 10 caps, assuming a gram per capsule?
