    Least expensive fish oil...

    I end up buying so much fish oil that I figured it was about time to figure out which brands are the cheapest.

    It gets so confusing going to the stores and looking at the myriad of doses and prices, so I threw together a quick spreadsheet to compare the prices.

    So far, according to online pricing, the NOW Omega 3 gels appear to be the cheapest (with the softgels of the same line coming in a close second!)
    btw what is the difference in softgels vs reg caps? there is a small price difference.

    Obviously if you get the stuff with the enteric coating your gonna pay considerably more, but paying double for questionable absorption isn't my cup-a-tea...anyway!!!

    What I want to know is, what you buy, how much you pay, and how much EPA, DHA is in it, and how many caps per bottle.

    Then I'll enter it in my spreadsheet and see if there is a new winner!
    and I'll post the spreadsheet at the end!



    so you dont waste your time, the ones I've already got are:
    NOW Super EPA Double Strength
    NOW Super EPA
    NOW Max EPA caps
    NOW Max EPA softgels
    NOW Omega3 caps
    NOW Omega3 softgels
    Spectrum Natural Omega 3
    Kyolic EPA
    Twin Labs Super Max EPA
    Vital Nutrients Fish Oil
    Fisol w/ enteric
    Carlson Labs Super Omega 3

    I get the one that's sold at Sam's Club. 300-cap bottle is about 7 bucks. Also 180 EPA, 120 DHA per cap.
