    now Ultra Omega 3, has 500mg EPA per gel, it is not stocked at the board store though
    They still have Super EPA, which is almost as good.

    I usually use health from the sea flavored liquid, but since the bulk nutraplanet caps have come out I've been using those as the price is right.



    NP usually has sans triple strength in stock, but its currently out.

    Hell just go with Nutra's bulk caps. 1000 of them for like $23 bucks. (I might be off slightly on the price) You cant go wrong.

    Biotest Flameout fishoil is 100% insane.


    But go with liquid fishoil like the lemon-lime from Vitamin Shoppe, take like 10g a day, fishburps on it actually taste good.

    I think flame out is the only one with a higher (much higher at that) ratio of DHA vs EPA.

    Yeah, I think the high EPA/DHA ratio on Flameout is the reason a lot of fish oil megadosers use it. Maybe EPA is more beneficial at very high amounts than DHA or something like that.

    Flameout has more DHA than EPA. Much more.
    And a tiny amount of CLA for some reason...

    And the total fish EPA is not really enough...

    Really the product is not all that impressive unless you really need high dose DHA... And that person is not me, as I want EPA.

    Purchase a bottle of Fish Oil in liquid form. You'll pay approximately $15-$20 for a 500ml bottle. If you want to achieve the full benefits of Fish Oil then dose it at 40ml. That's the equivalent of 40 capsules. This is the most effective dosage for fat loss and reducing inflammation. One bottle will last 3 weeks.

    This is only recommended for short term dosing ( for example, you are following polquin's recommendations ).

    Carlson Cod Liver oil or Nordic Naturals is probably the best way to go in fish oil type products. NOW is right behind them probably

    I cant say they are the best because I havent tried either; however, I just bought a 16oz Nordic Naturals bottle of fish oil yesterday in lemon flavor. A big bottle is important to me, I cant find NOW fish oil in stores.... and I use these bad boys up quick since I take a tablespoon a day

    It has:
    • EPA 825 Mg
    • DHA 550 Mg


    ^^PER TEASPOON^^. Which is a high dose. 1 TABLESPOON with breakfast will take care of all your EFA needs

    Well the reasoning I say is because I work at a Vitamin Shoppe and customers upon customers tell me these two specific brands have had more of an impact on their health then any other.

    Sadly enough, I have to do this as well.

    You can't beat the NOW Ultra Omega 3 when it has 500mg EPA/250mg DHA per 1,000mg for about $20-22.

    I'll see about our fish oil being out of stock. For a capsule product it is a very high concentration (the highest I've seen I think, per cap)- but for megadosers the liquid is the way to go (IMO, at least). Fish Fats is an effective way to get EPA/DHA in convenient doses, but Poliquin method is better suited for liquid, where the cost/gram is significantly less.

    I went to the sann site and checked it out, pretty awesome, I think the Now product is cheaper with a lot more servs and only a few mg less... But I have no idea about the quality of ether. Care to elaborate on what sets sann about from now ultra omega 3?

    Bro read a few posts up, much easier to just down a tablespoon of fish oil in the AM than pop 10 pills a day. It really doesn't taste that bad and liquids are usually very highly dosed.

    Sorry, I only just saw your post. Which of the NOW products are we talking about in particular? Right now I unfortunately don't have much time, but I will respond more as soon as some frees up..

    I had to pull the prices from another website, because I didn't see this from Nutraplanet. Correct me if I got the wrong products:

    NOW Omega-3
    100 servings (2 cap)
    $6.95
    EPA: 360mg
    DHA: 240mg

    Fish Fats:
    60 servings (1 cap)
    $16.99

    To get the values, we have to calculate some:

    From 1350mg, we have 43% EPA, 22% DHA, 10% SDA (16:4), and then some vit. E on the side (10IU).

    That yields:
    EPA: 580.5mg
    DHA: 297mg
    SDA: 135mg


    SDA is a less commonly known FA, and worth pausing for a moment to consider. SDA means stearidonic acid, part of the omega-3 acids, is an EPA/DHA precursor. The interesting part of SDA is that it comes from a renewable source - from sources such as flaxseed, spirulina, and certain other plants. Because it can be grown, instead of harvested (like fish), the system will last a lot longer; while sadly, fish will not (depletion hasn't had the effects seen so much, but it will). This property alone makes SDA interesting. As for conversion, we see roughly a 1:.3:.07 EPA:SDA:ALA ratio 1.

    EPA/DHA + .3*SDA = 580.5mg + 297mg + 135mg*.3 (conversion to EPA) = total

    So basically, you have a higher concentration (about 580 + 300 + 45 or so), and 5x the vitamin E power - 10IU as compared to 2IU. I'm about to sleep, and didn't do the price per gram, but it's a straightforward calculation.

    This is truly loaded with EPA/DHA. Amazing how they go all that in one softgel.

    NOW's fish oil isn't a very high quality fish oil, isn't molecullary distilled, and therefore probably contains amounts of mercury and other toxins fish injest.

    I recommend Cooper Complete as the best price wise fish oil out there. Especially for cardiovascular benefits.

    Yes, they don't process it to high standards like other companies. They do run batch tests in order to see if toxins are making it into the products, but never filter or distill it. I would rather take something that is the purest form of fish oil compared to something that is just tested to make sure it isn't bad.

    That is another reason why their price is cheaper than a lot of companies out there.
