How Are Omega-3 Oils Unique? Because of their unique structure omega-3's have important and unique functions in our bodies EPA and DHA have a longer structure and contain more double bonds than ALA.

I've reviewed this produict before
 June 29, 2013
"Just wanted to add that this is one product which I feel confident in recommending to others. I've ordered it for my daughter to take daily and I've specifically suggested it to family and friends especially those with aging dogs.
Although I used to take it sporadically after the gentleman who owned a local health store said that he preferred the Carlson quality, it wasn't until the Vet said that she wished I'd been giving it regularly to our aging dog that it became a daily supplement staple for both the dogs and for me.

"I have been highly impressed with Carlsons fish oil. I like the fact that they keep the mercury and other contaminants out. Fish oil is the only supplement endorsed by a national organization, the National Heart Association."

No fishy aftertaste
 August 24, 2008
"Have tried several types of fish oil and this one is by far the best as far as a fishy aftertaste. I researched fish oil products quite extensively and found the best reviews on this one and so far I have not regretted purchasing this brand and I'll continue to order it."
