On the other hand there are high-quality brands like Nordic Naturals which are very expensive but also have very high amounts of EPA and DHA.
When ordering my Omega 3 supplements from Amazon this time around I wanted to find out whether it would be cheaper per unit of DHA/EPA to buy lots of low quality fish oil or just a few bottles of the high quality stuff.
So I made up a simple excel sheet to calculate the price per unit of DHA/EPA using prices on Amazon in late June 2011. What I found out was surprising.
Cost per gram of EPA + DHA:
Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Formula, 180-Count: $0.39
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, 1,000 mg Fish Oil, 180 Soft Gels: $0.30
Ultimate Omega Liquid by Nordic Naturals - 8 Fluid Ounces: $0.47
Kirkland Signature Enteric Coated Fish Oil Omega 3 1200 MG Fish Oil, 684 MG of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, 180 softgels (Pack of 2): $0.15

This is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading omega-3 fish oil supplements: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, Now Ultra Omega-3, UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and UnoCardio.
There are three major components of omega-3 in 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.
BREAKDOWN: Here is a breakdown of these supplements.

I have never experienced any fishy burps with this product like I have with other fish oil brands. It is definitely quality made, and has VERY low mercury content because of the usage of small fish (mackeral, anchovies, sardines) instead of larger fish. I highly recommend this brand of fish oil to anyone who is interested in supplementing their diet with Omega-3's, which is one of the best things you can add to your diet. cheers!
The typical fish oil pill is made with a soft, spongy gelatin type of coating, while these pills have a much harder coating. I suspect they wanted this to have the same effect as an enteric coated pill, which has a thicker coating that holds up better in the acid of the stomach, so that the majority of the ‘good stuff’ inside can make it down to the intestines where it can be absorbed. But just so people know, these pills are about the same size of typical fish oil pills, but significantly harder.
Anyone who has problems swallowing large, harder pills, may encounter a problem with these.
P.S. to the companies who sell pills on Amazon: Pictures of the pills would be a great addition to the pictures of the bottle.
