    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Normally, the price is around $8.00 for 100 caps of Nature Made fish Oil (1200 mg)

    Target has B1G1 packs (200 caps) on sale for $6.99

    On each B1G1 pack is a coupon for $2 off your next Nature Made purchase at Target

    Simply rip them off at the register and buy as many as you like for $4.99.

    As a kicker, every 4 B1G1 packs you buy will earn you a coupon for $7 off your next Nature Made purchase (enter codes online)

    I paid $80 for 3200 fish oil caps and received $26 in coupons (first coupon is $5, rest are $7), and I have enough fish oil to last me over 2 years. (They expire in October 2008.)

    This works out to 2.5 cents for each 1200 mg fish oil capsule (ignoring the $26 in coupons).

    FWIW, this is $7.50 for 300 pills, and most pills are 1000 mg rather than 1200 mg :)

    What wholesale store do you go to? Do you get cheap whey there too?

    BJ's, and I could if I could tolerate vanilla (that's their only selection, EAS vanilla 6 lbs = 22.99)

    yeah they are only 1g, but this doesn't require those pain in the ass rebates

    In their stores they have little bottles of fish oil for like $1/each. There were 4-5 other supplements there, too. I'm pretty sure they're worthless, but I guess if you need a cheap fix. :dunno: I don't have any left so I couldn't tell you the nutritional values on them.

    :rofl: You think the FDA was on the other line reviewing their response? Do you also believe that Cell-Tech gives you a 300% muscle mass gain? Muscle-Tech says it does, so it must right?

    The criteria for the study is so in depth, i don't feel like reading the 400pg results;

    (1) whether they purify their fish oil to reduce or remove environmental contaminants; (2) what methods they use to purify their fish oil; and (3) what standards they comply with regarding acceptable levels of contaminants.

    I agree with Coleman about that review.

    This one would be a better review because they actually tested the samples themselves...

    While also done by survey...according to Consumerlab.com. two of the top supplement brands with the highest consumer satisfaction is NOW and Solaray. In that fishoil survey though, NOW recieved 'incomplete' and Solaray 'worst choice'... at least for fishoils.
    Since I don't subscribe to consumerlab.com, I don't know which brands Cl felt were the worst for the fishoil.

    NOW >* ...i contacted them and they sent me numerous lab testing reports on their glucosamine products as well as their fish oil products.

    Timb here is their Glucosamine/Chondrotin/MSM product test results;

    Here is an analysis of the glucosamine requirements:
    Assay: GSPC (the potassium complex): 98.0% - 105% Glucosamine
    (base): 58.5- 63.0%
    Glucosamine Sulfate (GS): 71.6% - 79.1% (we will use 73.33% as the
    lowest
    end, 75% is the average GS yields)
    Potassium: 11.7% - 13.6% KCl: 23.4% - 25.4 Chloride: 11.1% -
    12.3% Sulfate: 14.5% - 15.9%

    The analysis of the chondroitin and MSM are similar in checking for
    purity
    and potential contaminants.

    We also test for a variety of other factors:
    Microbiological: Aerobic Plate Count: < 10,000 cfu/g; Yeast and Molds:
    < 100
    cfu/g; Coliform: <10 cfu/g;
    E. coli: <10 cfu/g; Salmonella spp.: Negative/25g;
    Heavy Metals: HM as Lead (Pb): <10ppm; Lead: <5ppm; Cadmium/
    Mercury/Aluminum: <1ppm (each)
    Arsenic (Limit Test USP 23, <211>): <3ppm

    Thank you for your inquiry,
    NOW Quality, Science, & Nutrition Group
