I am a fan of getting my Omega-3's every day. Most people who know their Omega 3's know the reasons you want to get it into your diet, but I will reiterate the main reasons (Source: WebMD):

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. We need them for our bodies to work normally. Because essential fatty acids (ALA,DHA,EPA) are not made in the body or are inefficiently converted from ALA to EPA and DHA, we need to get them from our diet.

Omega-3s have a number of health benefits. Omega-3s are thought to play an important role in reducing inflammation throughout the body -- in the blood vessels, the joints, and elsewhere. However, omega-3 supplements (EPA/DHA) may cause the blood to thin and cause excess bleeding, particularly in people taking anticoagulant drugs.

There are several types of omega-3 fatty acids. Two crucial ones -- EPA and DHA -- are primarily found in certain fish. Plants like flax contain ALA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is partially converted into DHA and EPA in the body. Algae oil often provides only DHA.

Experts say that DHA and EPA -- from fish and fish oil -- have better established health benefits than ALA. DHA and EPA are found together only in fatty fish and algae. DHA can also be found on its own in algae, while flaxseed and plant sources of omega-3s provide ALA -- a precursor to EPA and DHA, and a source of energy.

I can't always be eating fish so I take an Omega-3 supplement. I have tried fish oil but it makes me belch fish (yucky for me anyway). My wife takes krill oil which we purchase here on Amazon. That doesn't make me burp, but you have to take several tablets a day to get a decent amount of DHA/EPA. I found this supplement which supplies 550 mg of Omega-3 from a single gel tablet.

So, I know that fish oil is good for your heart and you need a lot of Omega 3's in your diet. I have tried all the fish oil tablets out there from sources like salmon and other fishies, but they give me terrible fishie burps. I hate that fishie aftertaste. Krill oil tablets are a good source of Omega 3 and I have tried them and they don't cause the fishie burps, but they are awful expensive. So, I read up on calamari as a good source of Omega 3 and also read that it doesn't give you the fish burps so thought I would try it. And the reviewers are right. No fish taste/burps. Also high in Omega 3, this stuff seems to be the perfect solution. I keep my bottle in the fridge so the oil doesn't go rancid and take it every morning. The other nice thing about this is that it is a lot less expensive than krill oil and also is no/low mercury - a win-win for me anyway.

This is a side-by-side comparison of ten high DHA omega-3 fish oil supplements: Doctor's Best DHA 500 From Calamari, Carlson Super DHA Gems, Jarrow Formulas Max DHA (Blue Label, Now Foods DHA-500, Nurture Me, Nature's Way Mega-DHA,), Nordic Naturals DHA Strawberry, Doctor's Best Vegetarian DHA, Nordic Naturals DHA Extra, and Barlean's Organic Oils - Ultra DHA.

There are three major components of omega-3 in most of these products: EPA (which is good for your heart, circulatory system, lowering triglycerides, depression and mood orientation, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory for soothing joint pains), DHA (which is good for your mental acuity, or if you are pregnant, nursing an infant, or for children), and "other." Other omega-3s, like DPA and SDA, are types of fatty acids which are easily converted to EPA in the body. In most fish oils, the amount of these other fatty acids is low, but in highly concentrated oils, it can be a significant amount. The important components are EPA and DHA.

The question is often asked: Which is more important, EPA or DHA? The following may provide some insight.

Doctor's Best has published a comprehensive evaluation of DHA on its website. It is authored by Dr. Parris M. Kidd, Chief Science Officer of Doctor's Best, and one of the foremost authorities in the world on fish oil and magnesium supplementation. I have incorporated portions of that evaluation here, which is re-published with the permission of Doctor's Best and Dr. Kidd.

DHA (DocosaHexaenoic Acid, omega-3) is a building block for the cell membranes that manage life processes.

Before commenting on this product, I wanted to be as objective as possible. Therefore, before taking this supplement, I had a full blood panel run by my doctor. I then took this supplement for six months, three capsules daily. After the six months, I had another blood panel taken for comparison with my first one. The results of the blood panel after taking this supplement for six months had only two noticeable changes. . .one positive and one negative. My total cholesterol decreased by 10% but my hemoglobin A1c increased by 5%.

I have excellent eating habits and a balanced nutritional diet. There is no doubt that omega-3 fatty acids are important to our health and overall medical condition. I believe the quality of the omega-3 supplement is, therefore, critical to the product's effectiveness. In reading the literature on Doctor's Best DHA 500 from Calamari, it appears that the product is produced from farmed (harvested) squid instead of wild, natural squid that is caught. I don't know if this is significant, or not.

Based on my insignificant results after using this product for six months, I did some additional research on omega-3 supplements. I learned that most omega-3 supplements on the market have only a 30% - 35% concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. I've located a product that is pharmaceutical-grade with more than 85% omega-3 fatty acids. I will be ordering this product shortly and I'll test it the same way I tested Doctor's Best.

Please keep in mind that I'm expressing my personal experience with Doctor's Best DHA 500. Your results, if you're able to measure them, may be the same, worse, or better than mine.
