What's a high quality and affordable fish oil supplement?

Answered on September 12, 2014

I've use the capsules, krill oil, and bottles of oil before in the past. All the bottles have been too expensive, and I didn't like the capsule because I would have to take 15-20 pills a day to get all the EPA and DHA I need. Can anyone recommend a good product that won't break the bank?

+1 for the tip about freezing the fish oil caps. This is good to know!

I'm curious as to why you need so much?

It is much better to go for the real food source of fish oil rather than taking pills, if you can do it. For omega-3s, I'd go with Carlson's cod liver oil. A teaspoon once or twice a week is plenty for me.

Protein, EPA, DHA and other good things all in one.

Try BlueVera softgels ??? they contain a good amount of EPA (600 mg) and DHA (200 mg). You shouldn???t too much omega-3s ??? just enough and this is a good daily dose to take. I don???t get any fishy after burps from taking these, but you can freeze fish oil capsules to avoid fishy after burps.

I use: http://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-norwegian-ultra-dha

500mg DHA, 100mg EPA, 400mg ALA per capsule, and 10IU vit E to stop it going rancid. Cost is only ~7 cent a day.

DHA is most easily converted to EPA and vice versa, so these are really good. No fishy taste at all either.
