Best Fish Oil?

There are so many brands of fish oil its really hard to tell... Usually the more expensive products have better quality control and more stringent mercury protocols, but there always exceptions.
Really what you want with fish oil is when you open up the bottle, as counter intuitive as this sounds, is that it almost has no smell. The less smell of either fish oil or rancidness in the bottle means its a higher quality fish oil, as the fish hasn't oxidized. In short, more smell= more oxidation, which is not the best thing.
The main with supplement with fish oil is to get Omega-3 fatty acids into the diet, which are normally not in favorable ratios. Omega-3 fatty acids are converted in the body, among other things, into eicosanoids. Eicosanoids are hormonelike lipids in the body that are responsible for a number of things; blood clotting, inflammation, cholesterol... Because the typical Western Diet is low in Omega-3's, supplementing with these will help regulate health factors that are typically unfavorable because of the Western Diet.
Hope this helps... I'm in a rush right now so if anyone notices anything I missed or mis-stated please correct it... anyways I'm off to class.

PublicEnemy is on it. Find a company that processes their products quickly, and gets them to you even faster.

Usually look for molecularly distilled fish oils. I believe some companies triple distill to remove all impurities; I've been using our http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...-capsules.html which are the best value for your money. Some people prefer SuperConcentrate Fish Oils which are more expensive but contain less "other fats" , an example being http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...-softgels.html

I am a big fan of Animal Omega, and have used a variety of other Omega products in the past, and find Animal Omega makes me feel better while on them
