Fish oil...

Sorry if this has been answered before (as i suspect it has) but I'm basically looking for the best fish oil product I can buy online in terms of quality/price efficiency.. i've read costco and something puritan, but was wondering if that is the general consensus?

which fish oil is best?

Re: Fish oil...

Jan,

The topic's been discussed quite a bit. Go to the search bar and type in "fish oil" or "omega 3" and you'll have more infromation than you know what to do with.

Re: Fish oil...

Ok so I did some research and I decided to go for a mixture of carlsons liquid and kirkland caps- for when i can't carry the bottle around.. It's amazing how much cheaper this stuff is in the US than it is in South Africa and other places in Africa..

For the price of one alright brand in SA of 365 caps, you can get more than 4 bottles of 400 cap kirkland brand fish oil! Crazy!

Thanks for the help..
