Try fish from the Gulf of Mexico, especially fish caught off the coasts of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Those fish are very rich in oil.

In seriousness, I wish I could answer this question. Truth is, I feel like this is one of those supplements that will make you healthier, but you won't feel the effects. So I'm guessing your best bet is to just check reviews on the internet.

The source of the fish oil honestly doesn't really matter. As long as it is Omega 3 DHA/EPA and you take at least 900mg of the DHA/EPA component per day then you will be best served.
Just pay attention to the strength section on the back of the fish oil bottle for the DHA/EPA component so that you make sure you are doing at least 900 mg per day. Also, you may want to do the enteric coating version if you have a fishy aftertaste / burps develop.

Well, that depends. Fish oil is a very strong anti-inflammatory (comparable to ibuprofen for many things), so in that sense, you can feel it.

This is the brand I use:

4 in the morning, 4 at night. No fish burps, either, so win-win.

Biotest FLAMEOUT

Highest potency fish oil out there. Nothing comes close- great for post workout soreness, and lowers the bad cholesterol. Aaaand... you do not need to take 4-6 pills with this stuff. One of these probably more than 2-4 of other brands.

A little food for thought. (http://thehealthyskeptic.org/when-it-comes-to-fish-oil-more-is-not-better)

I do take krill oil on occasion because I don't eat enough fish but I mostly just try to avoid the omega-6 (vegetable) oils rather than overcompensate with omega-3 oils.

I don't trust all the shit that says take a bazillion milligrams of this shit a day. These are the same knuckleheads who tell you to OD on Vitamin C and Vitamin D and how it can't harm you (and a study was just released yesterday warning against too much Vitamin D). I take one fish oil pill in the morning. It may not give me six-pack abs and make my cock grow to 17" but it probably won't kill me. When it comes to drugs, I don't trust anyone. (Except my dealer, 'cause his shit's off the hook.)

There's hardly a fishy taste at all and it's stacked in everything you want in a fish oil. You would need to eat about 1 and a half full grown raw salmon to get the same level of supplements. That's probably about $200 in sushi. When you bake or broil it loses some of those supplements.

I really don't notice a difference in how I feel but two teaspoons a week isn't going to do anything but help me for nothing else than the vitamin E. The only vitamin that I can feel the difference when taking and not taking is vitamin C.

I've been using Krill Oil as well and it has been more effective than Fish Oil tabs.

The difference is that the regular fish oil tabs are created from penned fish and krill oil is from a more natural setting.

My Cholesterol went from over 200 to under 125 and the triglicerides went down to 137 from 291. Fish oil did not have the same impact.

Yeah, I just feel like it's the only FDA regulated fish oil so the chance of it having mercury is much lower.

the FDA establishes guidelines for the purity and manufacturing of fish oil capsules, they just haven't been approved as a medication as Lovaza has.

Which means nothing when you consider how many approved medicines have been banned by the FDA after approval and use when long term studies showed unsafe risks or results.

It doesn't matter how many you take, really. Biotest Flameout is $30 for 22 servings. OTOH, you can buy less "potent" fish oil, and take more of it, and get 120 servings (or more).

As for Fish Meal, is that like Corn Meal except it's made out of fish? If so, no thanks. I have no interest whatsoever in Fish Muffins.

Alright here is my advice.

Don't be so concerned about the cost. Don't be concerned about the brand either.

What you need to be concerned about is whether the fish oil supplement you purchased is working or not. You do this by experimenting.

Now Im not sure whether you guys know about the fish oil experiment in a styrofoam cup? Anyway, what you do is use a styrofoam cup and fill it up with lukewarm water. Then take your fish oil capsule, break it, and pour it into the stryofoam cup with lukewarm water. If, within 5-10 minutes you don't see the fish oil breaking down the styrofoam then the fish oil product you've purchased is not working.

It is not being properly absorbed by your body and is not breaking down the cholesterol in your body either.

The reason they say use styrofoam is because styrofoam has a similar composition to the cholesterol in our bodies. This is the perfect experiment since fish oils are meant to break down the lipids in your blood.

Now Im no expert or scientist but I do surroud myself with people who are involved in the health field and they agree with this experiment. I must say, the first time I saw it, I was astounded.

I think that's backwards....

Find out if your fish oil is the *evil* ethyl ester with a simple Styrofoam cup!

Here’s the secret to find out because the label won’t always tell you!

Place a bit of your fish oil in a Styrofoam cup. Place the cup on a plate to avoid any mess. Take a look at the cup after a few minutes. If the fish oil has leaked significantly through the cup it contains ethyl ester–ethyl ester fish oil eats through the cup! You’ll see it after just a few minutes, but give it 10 or so to truly determine. Natural triglyceride fish oils placed in a Styrofoam cup will not do the same.



Interesting, right?

Other key factors with buying a high quality fish oil (the Styrofoam cup test is just the first step in making sure you have a decent omega 3 product). Here are 3 others:
1.High concentration of EPA and DHA which you can see on the label (aim for at least 500 mg per serving)
2.Molecularly distilled to remove any and all impurities
3.Fresh, clean tasting to ensure the fish oil isn’t rancid.

Your heart responds best to Salmon oil. For whatever reason salmon oil has a unique blend of the 3-6-9 omegas that your heart thrives on more than any other fish oil. Always buy the actual oil and stay away from the capsules. Capsules go rancid fairly quickly and actually turn into a "transfat" which as you know is cancer causing. Always buy 'fresh coldwater' salmon oil and stay away from the "farm raised" salmon oil. Studies have shown a 50% decrease in effectiveness using "farm raised".

Also I take a tablespoon of Cod Liver Oil a day. Very high in Vitamin D. This is important because the main fundamental supporting vitamin of your total immune system is Vitamin D. Cod Liver Oil has the most Vitamin D available to offer than any other food. It sounds far worse than it tastes. They have many flavors but I find the "lemon flavor" very tasty:thumb:
