    Cheap fish oil? (Deep sea alaska fish oil?)

    Found this site: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/elitelab...epseafis5.html

    Can get 12 bottles (100 softgels each) for $25. Says its 30% EPA/DHA with vitamin E. Has anyone heard of the brand before, though? "Wesco International"?

    Looks like your average fish oil to me

    I've been looking into other fish oils. I want something higher in EPA/DHA. Min. 50% but I would like 80% if I could find it.

    I just bought 12 bottles of it... lol.

    On that site they've got 50% EPA/DHA softgels, but its works out to be more expensive to take those then the equivelent amount of the 30% softgels.

    It's the cheapest site i've found so far. I snooped around a bit, and it looks like the direct factory store for elite pharmaceuticals.

    well if it's cheap, then instead of the recommended dosage you maybe can have more to meet your requirement

    These caps are 1000 mg Salmon Oil, 300 mg Omega Fatty Acids; included as: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) 180 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) 120 mg and Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) 5 I.U.

    I don't know how to calculate the fat from one caps?
    How much fat is 180mg and 120mg?

    Each 1000mg of Fish oil typically has 1G fat.
