Olympian Labs Mega Omega-3 Fish Oils -- 2000 mg - 120 Softgels

Gluten Free. Tested for Mercury. 600 EPA / 400 DHA. From Cold Water Fish. No Trans Fatty Acids. Given the deficient diet of the average American everyone should be taking omega-3 fish oils. It only makes sense to take the most powerful oil you can!  . The primary protective components of fish oil are two long chain highly polyunsaturated fatty acids called Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). With an EPA of 600 and a DHA of 400 our Mega Omega is almost twice as powerful as our standard omega-3 oil. Studies demonstrate that EPA and DHA positively affect a variety of conditions including coronary artery disease and support blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Current studies demonstrate omega-3 fish oils ability to increase mental alertness and may play a role in emotional well being.  . OL's Omega-3 Fish Oils are obtained from fish found in cold deep water. These fish provide more of the omega-3 factors (fatty acids) than other fish. Essential fatty acids are found in high concentrations in the brain and are essential for nerve conduction and brain function.  . This product meets or exceeds all applicable purity standards including California Proposition 65.  . OL's Philosophy.  . At Olympian Labs (OL) quality is not a choice it's a commitment.

"Believe it or not, I researched fish oils for about 30 minutes, comparing claims, sources [soy included? Yuck. N.Atlantic? Tested? etc.]. I also compared dosages per capsule.
Even though this had no reviews, I chose it. I am glad I did. It has a nice mild healthy fishy smell in the bottle, not like the stale smell of some big brands.
It also has the highest dosage of EPA & DHA of any I studied, and that was A LOT of choices in the Vitacost listings!
It comes in a dark glass bottle, the capsules are not cloudy, the fish oil is not aged, it is quite pure. I am not getting burps from it either (I typically would not anyway) and their description said it was burp-free.
I'm going to start paying attention to the other Olympian Labs products. Their price for this high quality & high omega levels was super-reasonable!
