I have found "Carlson" fish oil liquid to be the best and the most free of all the contaminants. "Carlson" is a great company, and you can count on them to have a good product. I have been taking the liquid fish oil for a few years now, and it has kept my high sensitivity CRP at an extremely good level, very low, and I know it is so good for other things as well. It may be a little spendy, but, it is sure worth it.

Believe it or not Kirkland has a very good fish oil capsule. It's rated very well. You can get it at Cosco's I believe.

Thanks all!!! I have used Kirkland's enteric coated fish oil ( they have double omega 3) and liked them. I am glad they are ranked well, we take them as a family. I did NOT kinow they had soy in them ( saw it on label) and I did not know about vitamin E... what does that do??
Thanks again... Have a super holiday weekend all!

Okay, I am a little naive about fish oil.... what do you mean by,-" but contained listed EPA and DHA High440 mg per very large softgel?" What is EPA and DHA?? Sorry, this a  learning lesson for me.
  Thanks for the teaching moment. I am know you have to watch for mercury... other than it saying molecularly distilled I know NOTHING!!

And another ?? Is it better to take the liquid oil ( YUK!) I try to take double labeled dose... which gives you more benifit as well as cost too- oil/ capsules??. Thanks.

Nordic Naturals, in gel caps.  That protects them from oxidizing.  This company uses fish only from one dedicated fishery in a protected area of Norway; it's the reason the company was started.
