I am interested to get a fish oil supplement. Originally I want to buy Carlson's based on the good reviews, but unfortunately it do not even available in Malaysia. So those who have take fish oil, what's your brand? I have a look at Blackmore, Seven Seas and Abbott, all EPA/DHA is too low. (Carlsons contains 800mg EPA/600mg DHA per 5ml)

Yes, Carlson's is another premium brand. They get their fish oil from Norway. Actually, their EPA/DHA content is around 35% from the numbers you gave - 1400mg/4000mg (note 5ml is about 4000mg).

Most fish oil sold in Malaysia is around 30% EPA/DHA. I do bring in fish oil in my bulk (click my signature for the link) that has 52.5% EPA/DHA. But these are in softgel form.

Anyway, if you do want Carlson's I can bring it in also. PM me if interested. But Carlson's isn't cheap.

BTW, for myself I use the Jarrow softgels. My kids take the Carlson's in oil form (because they can't swallow the softgels yet).

I'm taking GNC Salmon Oil as well. Taken from wild salmons, it says... should be better than farmed salmons where they feed on pellets instead of wild algaes. I'd buy GNC only if they had discounts... and this month Salmon Oil is at 30% off (RM99.90 - 30% = RM69.93 for 180 caps = RM0.39 each), cheaper than some other ones sold at Watson's. It has 180mg EPA, 120mg DHA, and since men need about 610mg each day for optimum benefit, I take 2, one at breakfast and one at lunch. I also considered Pristin (396mg EPA, 264mg DHA) but it's expensive, at RM159 for 150 caps (RM1.06 each). Pristin was giving out free samples at Watson's last couple of weeks... but the sample was 7 capsules only sweat.gif

Make sure your choice of fish oil label has the words "molecularly distilled". This is the process of taking out the dangerous PCBs and mercury found in fish so the supplement is safe for human consumption. In a way, this is safer than eating real fish... but not sure about the absorption percentage of supplements.

Rather than going by cost per cap you should go by cost per mg of EPA/DHA (combined).

In this case the GNC has 180 caps x 300mg = 54,000mg. Price = RM69.93. Cost per mg = 0.1295 sen.
For the Pristin: 150 caps x 660mg = 99,000mg. Price = RM159. Cost per mg = 0.1606 sen.

So although the Pristin is more expensive, the difference is not as big as if you compared using cost per caps. Anyway, you sure each caps of Pristin has 396mg EPA, 264mg DHA?

I agree that molecularly distilled fish oil is a must to ensure no contaminants.

I bought Pristin 30 caps few days back. It cost me almost RM50/-. It uses some sort of distillation proces called OMATECH which produces 660mg (396EPA/264DHA) per 1200mg fishgel.

Thanks for the info. That's a very good concentration of EPA/DHA per softgel.

Yes you are right. I calculated the cost for each cap and how many I would have to take each day and compared the cost. I was actually looking for Watson's discounts for Pristin... but so far couldn't see any. BTW, they don't have a proper website too, so couldn't find out much about them.

Some people say it is better because in addition to EPA/DHA it also contains antioxidants. But krill oil has not been as extensively studied as fish oil.

Yes, definitely more expensive than fish oil.

In terms of quality both are similar. So you would choose based on value and form.

For value Jarrow is better. But Jarrow is in softgel form only. If you want in oil form then choose Carlson.

No, EPA/DHA amount is just a number - it is related to the potency and value (i.e. how much EPA/DHA you get for what you pay for).

When I say quality I refer to:
1. Where is the oil sourced from (Carlson is obtained from Norway, Jarrow from Canada).
2. How is the oil purified - the best method is molecular distillation (which both Jarrow and Carlson use).
3. Is the oil tested for purity and potency - Carlson is tested using AOAC International protocols, Jarrow's oil is USP verified
4. Is it manufactured to GMP standards - yes for Jarrow, not sure about Carlson.
5. Are the fish sources non-GMO - yes for Jarrow (from wild fish), also probably also yes for Carlson.

BTW, GNC has a type of fish oil which carries 380mg EPA, 254mg DHA per cap. Pretty good, though expensive at RM145.90 per 90 caps.

How much is Jarrow, and what's the DHA/EPA content? I haven't heard of them but sounds good smile.gif
EDIT: Never mind, saw the bulk sales thread, RM120 for 240 caps sounds good. I'll be getting some after I finish my GNC Salmon Oil smile.gif

Yup, that's pretty high for the GNC too but pricey.

Sure, let me know when you are ready to order.

The more important part about fish oil purchasing is not the concentration of EPA/DHA but the level of PCBs and dioxins. Mercury content isn't much of a worry as it concentrates in the liver. You're taking cold press fish fats as supplementation, so it's unlikely that mercury would cause reason for worry. Better safe than sorry I'd say.

I found a brand in the UK that has 2ng WHO-TEQ/kg PCB,dioxins and less than 2ppm mercury which measures quite well by my quality standards. Get something molecularly filtered. Even NOW Nutrition, which boasts molecular filtration only supplied partial evidence for their low pollutant claims and purity to government food administrations.

Choose your oil wisely because you want to be taking about 3 - 4g of combined EPA/DHA for fat loss effects (some even recommend up to 10g, but that is the excessive mindset of a bodybuilder - more is better, which isn't always true). So if your oil has a lot of pollutants, you'd be gobbling them down pretty quick.

I don't think you are. My friend gets the shits taking them also.

I'm taking about 6 - 8 a day without problems at 1,000mg 180/120 EPA/DHA per cap.

Are your caps softgels?

Yeah, they're softgels. I take about 4 a day at 1000MG a cap. Got them GNC ones. 90 caps, RM37 after discount. I thought they were pretty cheap.

My friend was like saying the Seven Seas one is about 17,000MGS per tablespoon. Im like ..."That cannot beeeeeeeeeeeee!!"

Measure bodyfat before
Measure bodyfat after

It was documented in some papers that above a certain dosage, EPA/DHA promoted fat loss.

I couldn't be bothered to look up the specifics. If you're that interested, I'm sure you can pubmed it, being an Elite and all.

Yeah, they're softgels. I take about 4 a day at 1000MG a cap. Got them GNC ones. 90 caps, RM37 after discount. I thought they were pretty cheap.

My friend was like saying the Seven Seas one is about 17,000MGS per tablespoon. Im like ..."That cannot beeeeeeeeeeeee!!"

Sounds cheap, but GNC isn't very pure I don't think. A bit of hear-say here and there about the pollutants in them. I don't know very much and I can't back this up right now cos I'm so sleepy. It can be easily found on the intertubes if it's true. I'd get something purer if I could, but your body can withstand a fair amount of dioxins before it becomes harmful as it takes your weight into consideration. Regardless, purer is better. Your body is a temple.

Mine has about 12ng WHO-TEQ/kg fish oil, so you can see how much there is there. It's quite an unpure one but not as dangerous as 37ng WHO-TEQ/kg by Boots Pharmacy. LOL

17,000 mg/tablespoon is huge. That's a lot. Like 17 tablets a day, dayumn

probs. Enough to substantiate quite a big hype methinks.

Also, after taking fish oils I've been feeling better about myself (serotonin related) and my sleeping hours are more regular than expected.

It gives me more benefits than I initially expected. I'm very happy.

There was a report filed by the government food administration in UK about the level of contaminants in commercial fish oil products. Also, I emailed the company asking for their level of contaminants and they agreed to send me their report but I haven't seen that in the mail yet.

You're right, it cannot be.

One tablespoon is about 15 ml. By weight that would be about 13.5 - 14.0 g or 13,500 - 14,000 mg. It's a physical impossibility to have 17,000 mg of oil in one tablespoon (unless she has an unusually large tablespoon smile.gif).

Of course the important thing is not the overall mg of the oil, but the mg content of the EPA/DHA.

AHA!!!
NSI Mega EFA sounds interesting.

240 gels to last you for four months, if you take 2 daily.
Awesome. Priced at about RM75 before delivery.
EPA 400 mg
DHA 200 mg (1 cap)

But the Jarrow's one seems.....better in terms of value.

About RM75 also before delivery. 1 daily is sufficient. EPA/DHA about 420/210. That'll last me for about....240 caps / 30 days ..fuyoh. Eat 1 a day, for 8 months at about RM100+-.

Cunted lah wei. JARROW IT IS FOR ME!

Hi all,

I am taking Kordel's Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil. It's very good and I have been taking it for years now.

There's always promotion going on... as we all know economy is not good and taking fish oils is long term We need to look at ones that is good and economical.

Kordel's Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is only RM 85.90 for 150 capsules. That's a good deal... and you can get some discount from Caring Pharmacy as well. rclxms.gif

Nolah.. the oil is extracted from fresh salmon.

Once grilled, the fish will be dry lo. drool.gif

Also, grilled oil is bad for health as the heat destroys the oil. nod.gif

Look for Omega 3 fish oil.

You have to search for pharmaceutical grade is better. Cos the content is precise.
As for the food grade, they may have write this amount, but it is not accurate.

Food grade means as long as it is hygenic then it is ok...
e.g. Ribena is only sugar water. No Vitamin C, but it stated it has. It was on the news. New Zealand high school student was measuring the Vit C level of Ribena. But can't found any.
Pharmaceutical grade means the content has to be precise.

Pharmaceutical grade is very expensive. For 90-120 tablets, supplements will cost in the range of RM200-RM400 per bottle. I only know of one brand in Malaysia which is USANA.

For the lower grade ones, the price is much cheaper and these supplements are the ones you find at pharmacies like 21st Century, Kordel, Blackmores, etc.

I'm recovering from a bad immune system so I have to take more supplements. I went for the cheaper option because the quantities I'm taking is a lot more. ATM, it's 4000 mg of Omega 3 (Blackmore fish oil and Kordel's Wild Salmon oil) but in the evening, I take 2000 mg of Omega 3, 6, 9 (Udo's Oil in capsule form).

Note : I'm doing this under supervision so I wouldn't advise you take the same dosage of me without someone monitoring you.

i am taking a good fish oil, it contain 429mg EPA and 280mg DHA. Total 700mg omega-3 per capsule. it come with ACTISOF formulation for better body absorption. I find worth to take a more concentrate fish oil as more omega 3 mean more distillation process to extract the fish oil, less contamination than taking normal fish oil (like USANA just have 300mg), am i right ?
But can find in Farmasi ALPHA in Klang valley only .....

OMG myremi, that's a lot. But I think consume more supplements doesn't matter, cos it is not drug. The problem is whether your body is able to absorb it or not. If you are under monitoring, should be ok smile.gif

If i'm not wrong USANA fish oil is less than rm100. which I think it's quite reasonable for the quality...

Choose brands of fish oil in tryglyceride rather than ester form.

Triglyceride is the naturally structured oil as in the fish's body, ester is after distillation & altered. There are brands that reconvert esters to triglyceride form and this is ok.

In europe, triglyceride fish oil is the preferred type.

Ester form exists in some type of fish & spermeceti oil but is used for mechanical/industrial use, so u can imagine how tough this oil is. Absorption is a problem because ester type of oil is more for controlling buoyancy & protecting the skin. Triglyceride form is for the fish to consume for energy purposes.

To test if your fish oil is ester, pop the pill & pour onto a styrofoam/polystyrene material. U will notice it eats onto the foam & causes a hole in 10 minutes. Don't worry, this won't happen to your body. I've tried pristin & it ate thro the styrofoam within a few minutes.

Hello..

Just for sharing, I used to take GNC fish oil 1 year ago... i didn't know much about the ingredient because i think fish oil is good for heart and brain and i trust GNC products very much because its brand and available everywhere in the shopping centre.

Until one day, my friend show me a "Comparative Guide book" to Nutritional Supplements. You can order from MPH or AMAZON.

for those who want to compare which fish oil is good. Here's the think you check;

1. Most product will tell you fish oil concentrate 1000mg, but the contains of EPA and DHA is only 300mg. Mostly added other oils or water.
to check simply put in the freezer.

2. free of harmful contaminants

3. cholesterol free (Salmon oil provide alot omega 3 but may not cholesterol free)

4. Pharmaceutical grade


Here's the ingredients for USANA product.

Each softgel (1581mg) contains:
Fish oil concentrate (
providing 600mg total Omega fatty acids,
standardized 290mg EPA, 235mg DHA

Source: Anchovy & Sardine (NOT from Salmon)

Vitamin D3 (for better absorption)

Natural lemon added (Not fishy smell at all)

RM85 only

I bought "Nn Supa EPA" from Cosway. It's cheap. RM70 for 3 boxes (total 150 soft gels). Each soft gel contains 300mg EPA & 200mg DHA. I'm new to fish oil. Your review please.

Its good that you trust supplement but cheap doesn't mean it always best, why not treat your body with first class ingredient.

1. TEST YOUR FISH OIL
Simply put one of your fish oil capsule in the freezer to test, a good fish oil will not become harden.

2. Are you using Pharmaceutical grade supplements?
Food grade supplements can label any amount in the contains, maybe more or less. Since there are a number of such supplements, it becomes difficult to choose because all seem similar and claim the same benefits. Verification and assurance of quality are difficult to obtain. Pharmaceutical grade supplements can offer a solution to this issue. Pharmaceutical grade products are required to be ninety nine percent pure.

3. DOUBLE DISTILLED
Oil is extracted and refined before being offered as a fish oil supplement. These fish are known to contain traces of cadmium, arsenic and nickel which cause heavy metal poisoning in humans. The refining processes are strong enough to remove these poisons but the essential fatty acids also get removed, reducing the quality of the supplement.

4. CHOLESTEROL FREE
Deepsea fish such as Herring, salmon, mackerel and other cold water fish are a rich source of fish oil and fatty acids. NOT suitable for high cholesterol people.

5. FISH OIL with VITAMIN D3
Vitamin D3 is vitally important for the support of healthy bones, your immune system, muscle strength, glucose control and a healthy heart. Deficiencies in Vitamin D can increase the risk of calcium deficiency, which in turn, can lead to accelerated bone loss, osteoporosis and heart disease.

Yes you are right.  I calculated the cost for each cap and how many I would have to take each day and compared the cost.  I was actually looking for Watson's discounts for Pristin... but so far couldn't see any.  BTW, they don't have a proper website too, so couldn't find out much about them.

Try Amway one, and please don't eat man-made fish oil, you can try to do an experiment ..

Use a needle to pock the fish oil and under the fish oil is polystrene, see whether the polystrene will be melted or not

i think this is something related to the oil-fish form, ester or triglyceride something

still in doubt, other than absorption rate between those two, what else is good about triglyceride form? anybody cares to share?

I *think* pristin also claims that they are pharmaceutically graded. tongue.gif

Usana is pricier and has lower EPA+DHA compared to pristin.

recently i took biolife fish oil and found out that my body couldn't accept it.
was having diarrhea the next day after i pop one and it was quite bad till i had to visit the clinic twice.

just thought of sharing, perhaps you might wanna go with a lower dose if you have not tried it. the thing is, you will never know if its right for you until you tried it.

Is one sofgel capsule of Pristin Fish oil a day is sufficient? I take this as normal health supplement. I am not sure weather one is effective but the dosage in the bottle written one softgel daily for adult. Should i take 2 capsule daily?

But Pristin website saying 2-3 softgel per day.

QUOTE
Why should I supplement my diet with Omega-3 Capsules?
Current studies recommend people to ingest a minimum of 1500 mg of Omega-3 oils daily. That dosage is roughly equivalent to the amount of oil contained in a 32-oz serving of ocean salmon (as opposed to "farm-raised")! Even if you like fish, that is an enormous amount of food to eat. To assure the body receives an optimal dose of high quality Omega-3 fatty acids every day, 2-3 capsules of the double strength or 4-6 capsules of the 1000mg should be taken.


QUOTE
Dosage
Health conditions

Heart health - 1 softgel 2 times a day

Inflammatory conditions - 1 softgel 3 times a day

Heart Disease Prevention - 1 softgel 2 times a day

Skin Health -  1 softgel 2 times a day

Joint Health -  1 softgel 4 times a day

Gastrointestinal Health - 2 fishgel 2 times daily

Women's health and Gynecology - 1 fishgel 3 times daily

Thinking to buy GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil which have 647mg EPA and 253mg DHA.
I usually take 2 cap of Pristine Fish each day.
If i buy this GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil, i may take only 1 cap per day. Seems good. rclxms.gif

I am now taking fish oil from Goldlife Bio-Omega: http://www.medipharm.com.my/products/g_fishoil.html

Based on the descriptions, it seems to meet most of the requirements like:
1. Pharmaceutical grade, complies with the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and CRN Voluntary Monograph that ensure the trusted quality and purity of Omega-3 EPA and DHA

2. Molecularly distilled

3. Formulated in vegicaps soft

Does anyone have any comment on this particular brand?

3x a day . Each time 2 tablets of 1000 mg each.

Every 3 months, I rotate the brands so that my immune system doesn't build up an immunity towards it.

Because of the high amount I take, I usually buy from the pharmacy and rotate brands. Cheapest one in KL is probably AA pharmacy. They sell in bulk and you can ask for 10% discount (can negotiate more if you can persuade them by buying in bulk).

I am waiting for my shipment to arrive. I am current taking Pristine fish oil 2 cap daily.

Am changing to GNC Triple Strenght fish oil. Hence it will increase my fish oil drastically.

2 sofgel Pristine - 792mg EPA and 528 DHA
2 softgel daily GNC Triple Strenght Fish oil = 1294mg EPA and 506mg DHA

Hence i get extra 502mg EPA but slightly lower DHA -22mg.
Should be a better choice!


Added on July 31, 2012, 5:20 pmChange Pristine to this one. rclxms.gif
Much higher in EPA but a tad lower in DHA. Currently taking 2 cap each day.

I guess nutrition value is more in GNC compare with blackmore.

Had a check and found GNC provide better nutrition value, it has more vitamins.

Nature's Way, the Australian brand which was all over the pharmacies
here during the 80s, is back in town again.

It's brought in by DKSH , or Diethelm.

Caring Pharmacy has some of their fairly low cost supplements. Their
fish oil is one of the cheapest at $55 for 180 caps.

Just be aware that the EPA/DHA content is the normal 30%, unlike some of the high potency or ultra high potency ones being mentioned lately.

There is also no mention of how it has been purified.

read my friend.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fish_oil

i just got interested in this today, after hearing one of my colleague got angioplasty (luckily when he suffered mild heart attack he didn't die). to help prevent heart attack and many other health benefits, take fish oil.


Added on September 13, 2012, 11:12 amSo i got this deal from Guardian MidValley. RM99.90 for 330 capsules. After transaction you get RM20 voucher for next purchase, effectively price is RM79.9 or 0.2421 per capsule.

However, this is not as potent as other brands mentioned here. It has natural fish oil 1000mg, but only 300mg of Omega3 which is 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA in a base containing natural vitamin E.

Salmon contains one of the highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids and fish oils. Omega-3 Salmon Oil Plus takes advantage of these concentrations by making high-quality fish oil using a process that reduces the amount of fillers.

True, only if its Wild Salmon. Unfortunately, most Salmons are reared now with fish feed. Making them produce less Omega3= EPA+DHA. Most Salmon Oil contained only around 300mg(Omega3), although softgel size is 1,000mg. sad.gif

hmm... my birthday is coming up, perhaps i'll use my birthday membership discount to buy bulk on the GNC fish oils and save that way smile.gif

How much is the GNC Triple Strength?
I thought they only have the GNC Double Strength here in Malaysia that cost rm156.9 for 90s.(EPA+DHA=634mg).

For general health maintenance and heart care, you need 1,000mg(minimum) of Omega3 daily. Anything less than that is as good as not taking. Btw, Vit E(tocopherol) is to preserve the fish oil from rancid...

read my friend.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fish_oil

i just got interested in this today, after hearing one of my colleague got angioplasty (luckily when he suffered mild heart attack he didn't die).  to help prevent heart attack and many other health benefits, take fish oil.


Added on September 13, 2012, 11:12 amSo i got this deal from Guardian MidValley.  RM99.90 for 330 capsules.  After transaction you get RM20 voucher for next purchase, effectively price is RM79.9 or 0.2421 per capsule.

However, this is not as potent as other brands mentioned here.  It has natural fish oil 1000mg, but only 300mg of Omega3 which is 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA in a base containing natural vitamin E.

Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 specs

Total cost :- 79.90
Total DHA/Omega3 :- 300mg X 330 = 99,000 mg
cost/100mg = RM0.0807/100mg

Good deal.

The swanson fish oil(550mg, 100 capsule) that i bought has a cost of 0.0909/100mg.

Good analysis. For checking price of fish oil, this is the way to do it.

This is for the fish oil I'm using from USA (Jarrow):

Price: RM110.00
Total DHA/Omega3: 600mg x 240 pills = 144,000mg
Price/100mg = RM0.0764/100mg

You mean this product: http://www.mederis.com.my/NeuroGainPB_Vegi.html ?

I can't see the full specs for this product on the website, but it is supposed to be a "DHA high, EPA low with AA and OA to help Pregnant and Breast-feeding women meet important pre and peri natal nutritional requirements".

This may not be suited for general use since it is high DHA targeted towards pregnancy.

Other than that and the fact it uses veggie softgels, I don't see anything special about it.

i think you should consult your doctor before taking any medication/vitamin since you are preggy...even though what you want to take contains DHA etc.

Look at the EPA and DHA on the nutritional info list.
You should want a high EPA DHA with the lowest price possible.

U need to know the process involved during the extraction also because if thecontaminants are not removed, u r basically putting ur body to more harm than good. Nutrilite is one of the trusted brand u can try as it is distilled at the molecular level

There are only a handful of reputable large-scale contract manufacturers. Most quality products in the market get their sources from these manufacturer.

And by that I am also implying that Nutrilite is overpriced.

If I'm not mistaken Nordic Naturals is very expensive. You can also look at ArcticPure by Source Naturals. They're probably purchasing from the same contract manufacturer or one of similar reputation.

Dear DT1, you are right. Nordic Naturals are expensive but NOT VERY expensive. I compare to brand like Blackmore, Nordic Naturals are cheaper. For example I bought the 16oz fish oil for my 2 children (liquid form), it lasts 3 months. The premium fish oil for adults (8 oz liquid) also lasts for 3 months as the consumption only 2.5 ml per day.

Previously I bought from Singapore and Swansonvitamins (use USA forwarder), it's very expensive because of the shipping charges. Now I order from iHerb.com, it is much cheaper because they give very big discount on shipping (DHL). The fish oil come to me in 4-5 days.

First order purchase can get extra USD10 discount for order above USD40, or get discount USD5 for order below USD40. Just use my referral code JZG052 will do (you can use other code, no problem).

Now I even order baking flour (gluten free), snack bars, hollywood diet drinks from iHerb because the DHL shipping getting cheaper and cheaper if you average out.

My advice is to use DHL, not the FREE USPS postage because you may find it too long to receive your parcel. Sometimes can go missing because of our POS Malaysia misplace of parcels.

What I meant is, you can find the ingredients of similar quality in brands that are potentially cheaper. For example, tell me if Source Naturals's Arctic Pure Fish Oil works out cheaper for you after considering the EPA/DHA content.

Thanks for the advice. Will look into it.
I have good experience with Nordic so I stick to it. My friends' children who have skin problem now improved a lot.
Further my doctor neighbour who have access to clinical reports of all supplements that go thru tough testing. He is the one who highly recommended me to have Nordic Naturals as it is the only brand that passed all very tough tests and fulfilled what it claimed, yet in affordable price. There are other brands with premium quality of DPA/DHA but expensive.
Thank you for sharing

Life Extension Super Omega 3 with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is also another high quality fish oil at a more reasonable price than Nordic Naturals.

According to IFOS report, this brand is one of the ultra refined fish oil, aka high quality fish oil.

From my customers' experience SEVEN SEAS PULSE HIGH STRENGTH TRIOMEGA Concentrated Fish Oil with Vitamin E shows satisfying results on reducing body fat, cholesterol, weight, blood pressure and plenty of good feedback on overall well being. I think it is value for money for the price.

Pristin when it was launched few years ago was a hit because of the value (price vs EPA/DHA) but after that they keep on increasing the price sweat.gif so I usually advice my customer to switch to Seven Seas nowadays coz they are almost the same in efficacy and strength but big diffrence in price (almost double!) smile.gif

If I'm not mistaken that Seven Seas fish oil that you are selling is 2 capsules per serve right? In that case, the concentration of EPA/DHA is actually quite low. You say it provides 520mg of EPA/DHA, but that is actually for 2 capsules not 1.

So the cost analysis is 240 capsules x 260mg = 62,400mg EPA/DHA for RM128. Works out to be 0.205 sen per mg of EPA/DHA.

Compare to Pristin, 330 softgels x 660mg = 217,800mg EPA/DHA for RM339. It is 0.155 sen per mg of EPA/DHA. So how can you say Pristin is almost double your Seven Seas? In fact Pristin is better value. Hope you stop misleading your customers.

Life Extension Super Omega 3 with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is also another high quality fish oil at a more reasonable price than Nordic Naturals.

According to IFOS report, this brand is one of the ultra refined fish oil, aka high quality fish oil.

I'm taking these ones at the moment and its also enteric coated. This helps since I have acid reflux issues. but the capsule size is quite large though.

Also would appreciate immediate feedback if it is not a good product.

Each softgel contains:
Natural Fish Oil Concentrate 1200mg
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) 600mg
DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) 300mg
Source of gelatine: Bovine
Source of Fish Oil
Sardina pilchardus, Poecilia, Auxis tapeinosoma.
Product of New Zealand

Omega 600/300™ enteric coated softgel is designed to bypass the stomach and dissolve in the small intestine.
This maximizes body's absorption without the "fishy burp" that you might encounter.
Molecular Distilled.
http://www.megalive.com.my/products/omega-600-300.html

Bought at Healthlane Pharmacy
1 bottle of 60 caps = RM75 (RM 1.25/cap) , For per mg(EPA/DHA) = RM0.00139
3 bottles packaging = RM218 (RM1.21/cap) , For per mg(EPA/DHA) = RM0.00134

The repackage name is Mega Live. Anyone feedback if is good or not?

This is another even better products from Norway and selling online in Australia.

Available sizes 200mL Bottle (liquid) – Lemon flavour
Each 5.5mL Contains
Fatty Omega 3 acids 4.7 Grams
EPA 1,700 mg
DHA 1,100 mg
Sugar free. No artificial flavours or preservatives.
Molecular distillation process

Free Shipping in Australia. Orders Shipped Express in 1-2 Business Days.

Three bottles for AUD69.98 = RM210.00
Each intake of 5.5ml = 2800mg EPA&DHA
(3X200ml)/5.5ml = 109 intakes
RM210/109 = RM1.93/intake@2800mg of EPA/DHA (very good price)

Anyone heard of this brand here and any feedback?

It depends on the source, but salmon oil typically contains two-thirds
the EFAs of regular omega 3s.

http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Salmon-Oil-250-Softgels/7257


In addition, salmon is also likely to have a certain amount of astaxanthin
(which accounts for their light pink color) as a bonus.

So you will still be getting your money's worth.

I think they may still give you an additional 20 % discount from the $118 ?

If so, you will be paying about $ 94 for the equivalent of 240 omega 3s,
coming to 39 cents each, comparable to the cheapest brands around, plus
astaxanthin.

Here's another very high potency fish oil:

647mg EPA + 253mg DHA per softgel!

I think this is the closest to what I'm looking for. How much for a bottle ?

I actually looking for VASCAZENVASCAZEN . It has high potency of 6:1 ratio (EPA 680mg, DHA 110mg / 1000mg capsule). I don't need high DHA as it will increase my LDL cholesterol. (it's already too high now..)

Please note that is for 2 softgels.

Each softgel is 400mg EPA and 200mg DHA (i.e. 60% concentration), which is still considered as high potency.
