Fish oil brands

marving,

At least in America, anyone can label any fish oil “pharmacy grade” or “pharmaceutical grade” — neither term has any regulated meaning, so there’s no way to know if the products labeled as such differ in any way from the products whose manufacturers do not self-apply such labels. That was part of the root of the controversy behind this thread.

Ok , thanks for that , guess I’ll just try them & see how they go .

I took a good close look at myself naked in a mirror for the first time since I’ve been taking the extra DHA. I had noticed this before somewhat, but now it’s very pronounced, much more pronounced than when I was breastfeeding (and also taking fish oil). I am very, very pale to begin with, but you can now very clearly see the veins in my body through my skin. I look like I walked off the set of The Vampire Lestat. My entire chest and neck have a subtle tracery of blue lines.

Some men here have written privately wanting to know the tells of women on my diet. Oily hair, oily skin, a dreamy sexual expression in the eyes (a bit like a woman on heroin). But this one is really obvious and as far as I know doesn’t happen otherwise, unlike oily skin for instance. My singing range has also greatly increased on the soprano end and acquired a deepness in tone.


I think it's the woman's job to tighten up to fit her man--it's lots easier for us.

Zane,

I’ve never taken fish oil, and yet you can see my viens. Phelobotimist love me.

Now, on a serious note, what brand is maybe, possibly the best fish oil to take? I hate taking pills, but I’m willing to give this a try, even my doctor said it won’t hurt.


sunny A day without sunshine is like a day without laughter :sun:

Yes, my veins have always been visible, like on my arms. I am very pale. But this is different. You can see the veins on my neck, on my breasts. You can see the veins everywhere. It’s weird, I feel a little like Jeff Goldblum in The Fly.

I’m reluctant to recommend a specific product now, now that I have a specific fish oil sponsor for my study. I do recommend something that has EPA + DHA > 500 mg for one one-gram pill.

:) Zane,

Are you familiar with Metagenics “High Concentrate EPA-DHA Liquid”? My wife’s new, holistically inclined, primary care MD suggested it for the general health benefits, and said it was low in heavy metals and trace contaminants. She has been using it for about 3 weeks, and I started too, when finished off my supply of generic stuff. It doesn’t taste bad, having a “natural lemon flavor”. I asked her if she thought it may be having “other” benefits but she didn’t think so, but the dose is not quite up to your diet levels but certainly a step in the “right” direction.

She gets it from a local, holistically oriented, pharmacy but I haven’t yet looked for a better price on the net. Her, mine too now, 1 tsp. (5ml) dose contains as per the label:

2800mg omega-3 fatty acids as:

1400mg EPA

925mg DHA

475mg other omega-3’s

lso containing, natural lemon flavor

rosemary extract

ascorbyl palmitate

natural tocopherols

I’ll find the price and work out the cost/dose. I would appreciate any opinions.

At that dose after three weeks there should be something happening. That brand seems fine to me. Never heard of it, but there are lots of fish oil brands out there.

Sometimes women don’t really notice the change because it feels so natural. Because it is natural, just filling a nutritional deficiency. For example, one vexing woman had been complaining of low drive for years, came to an FSD board and started my diet. A month later she was screwing her husband like a rabbit, but instead of saying it was my diet, she said the change was because they started making more couple time together.

Another thing is that she might be eating things that cancel out the effects of the omega-3 fatty acids. Eating lots of omega-6 fatty acids (any kind of polyunsaturated vegetable oil like soybean or corn oil) or transfats (any “partially hydrogenated” fat) will negate the omega-3 effects.

Just as an experiment, try pushing sex a bit more and see how she responds. She might be more open to it.

Well, here is a little info that is actually related to the original topic of the thread - is one brand better than the other?

According to the homepage of www.cardinova.com, purveyors of fine fish oils under the name of Eskimo3,

Quote
In a test performed in 2002 by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland and sponsored by the Irish government, Eskimo-3 was found to be 3-50 times more pure than the other 14 tested omega-3 products.

At the site (under product description > Eskimo3 > bottom of page) there is a table with named brands and the concentration of “PCDDs/PCDFs and Dioxin-like PCBs” in nanograms/kg. Needless to say, Eskimo3 was outstanding, weighing in at 0.6. Closest competitor checked in at 1.96, the following at 4.87, 6.41, 11.49 - and the remaing 10 brands had concentrations between 15 and 37 ng/kg.

In this pdf http://www.cardinova.com/PDF/Eskimo3.pdf they have listed some charts showing how the product outshines all other brands; there is reference to the research / test centre but no details on how the tests where carried out. I presume that information could be had if one mailed them.

I explain why I’m not in a position to give them certain information anymore and yet they still continue to ask for it anyway, over and over and over. It makes replying to them pointless. I am talking to Zane by the way, so I do not want to be quoted by anyone because I am not talking to you, so mind your own business!

Zane, Carlsons is good. I wish I could get it in the UK. Better that than costco for sure.

I repeat myself, I am talking with Zane, so anyone else (you know who you are) can mind their own business. Do not quote me and do not reply with arguments directed at me because I have heard what you have to say already!

Oh GOD, WTF, Mercola. That fuckign guy is a fraud. Everything is bad, everything except the brand he sells/endorses. So I’m not reading through 19 pages of arguing. Has anybody come up with what is the best quality fish oil for a reasonable price? I bought a Carlsons, 1 pint I think for $35 (Not gonna happen again) and a bottle of Sonnes No. 5 Old Fashioned Cod Liver Oil not de-stearinated ????
It says on the bottle. 100% pure , unheated, and unprocessed Norwegian Cod Liver Oil.
Saturated fat 1g Monosaturated fat 2g Polyunsaturated fat 1g EPA 440mg DHA 440mg
Vit A 4000 IU Vitamin D 400 IU.

Any idea if this Sonnes stuff sounds good? It was under 15 bucks.

Since you are my property, the contents of your mind are also my property, and you will give them to me when I ask.

Kfarrelldba, I would recommend not consuming your cod liver oil. It is dangerously high in vitamin A, and I think I remember reading that it tends to be heavily contaminated (dioxins, etc.) as well.

Beyond that, I’d just recommend buying the cheapest fish oil source you can find from a reputable seller. Many here have found the Costco brand good.

Mgus, thanks for posting that — it is the first evidence I’ve seen that a fish oil brand differs from others in contaminant levels. I would note, however, that 12 of the 15 brands listed in the comparison chart there are cod liver oils, which are notoriously unsafe sources. According to the original Irish report from 2002, all three of the regular fish oils’ contaminant levels met the government health standards (unlike some of the cod liver oils!), consistent with the studies from Consumer Labs and Consumer Reports. Still, if a person is taking huge doses of this stuff and is very concerned about keeping dioxin-like PCBs to a minimum, then that Eskimo brand appears rock-solid. It would be nice to see a chart that contained the exact contaminant levels for brands besides Eskimo and Higher Nature.

I should also say that I admire the integrity of the Eskimo-brand oil in citing legitimate evidence to back up their claims. Their “index” graphs are a little misleading, but they are pointing to respected research sources. If I wanted to pay more to ensure I got a fish oil with absolutely infinitesimal levels of contaminants even in large doses, this is a company I’d do business with :up:

I made a cost comparison of Omega3 in Sweden, of brands readily available in shops I frequent and two larger internet suppliers. Friggs liquid (bought at ICA Maxi) was 1.56 SEK per gram O3, Eskimo3 liquid was 1.93 on the net and 2.61 at Apoteket (Swedish Apothecary monopoly). Eskimo softgels were 5.03 on the net and 5.51 at Apoteket. Softgels from Pikasol Forte, Topformula and Fritt flyt (all from the net) were about 3 SEK per gram of O3. Apotekets own brand is 4.44 for softgels. The cheapest softgels I’ve found in a shop (at Konsum) are from Naturapoteket, at 3.07 SEK per gram O3. I guess that means I should start ordering my Eskimo3 from the net.

1 SEK is 0.13 USD these days, so a monthly consumption of 1000 mg/day O3 would run at 11.70 USD for Naturapoteket, Eskimo3 (bought at Apoteket) would cost 21.50 per month. I have no idea what Eskimo3 costs in the states of course, this is just for comparison.

By “03” you mean the DHA and the EPA count combined?
