It's likely not that much more effective but it's also not THAT much more expensive. However, with TG form, typically the quality overall is pretty much assured so there's no guesswork one needs to go through to figure out which brands are good to go or not.I think the ethyl ester vs. triglycerides thing is over-hyped. Most of the research I have seen has used EE forms anyway. I know this is going to upset some people and they will think I'm an idiot, but maybe I just haven't seen any real research that shows that triglyceride is truly more effective, and if it is - it should be 2-3X more effective since it generally costs 2-3X as much as the EE form.
This study is interesting...going to dig into it some more when I have the time.
Fair enough 50% more costly though if you want to get technical, since I guess it's like a $8 difference in price (IIRC, I think I paid like $28 per bottle, comes out a little bit cheaper than Nordic Naturals actually).Flameout is a good product. So is Nordic Naturals, and some others. No argument there.
I use Now DHA-500 or NOW Ultra Omega. Right now I am taking 6 DHA-500/day and that provides me with 3 grams of DHA and 1.5 grams of EPA. The Ultra Omega will give me the reverse of this at 6 pills - 3 grams EPA and 1.5 grams DHA. It costs me $20-25/month at 6 pills.
So, if you figure yours may be a little more bioavailable (say twice as good, which it may be), it would require a 50% increase in your dose to get the equivalent levels (2.25 grams in flamout that is twice as good as the 4.5 grams in NOW). That would be $45/month or almost twice the price. I'm using large doses, but the math will scale for any dose.
On the other hand, while it may be 100% more costly, we are talking $20-25 a month here which may not be a lot for many people and it may be worth going with the slightly superior product (if it is 100% more effective).
I don't really think you are wrong, btw, it's a great product and so are some of the other re-esterified/TG products, it's just a matter of cost/return for me and I am rolling the dice a little.
Yeah, maybe - I was using Nordic Naturals as my bench mark there. Flame out is a bit more reasonable it looks like. Nordic Naturals really just aren't cost justified, and I'm comparing one of the most potent/best priced non-TG oils to the TG oils....lower quality oils and the difference probably becomes more extreme. (edit: more extreme in your favor).Fair enough 50% more costly though if you want to get technical, since I guess it's like a $8 difference in price (IIRC, I think I paid like $28 per bottle, comes out a little bit cheaper than Nordic Naturals actually).
