    if getting fish oil from costco- highly reccomend you get the enterically coated ones (not sure if they are the ones on sale)

    also
    this is still a better deal on green tea extract (the costco one requires 2 caps for the same amount of egcg as one cap of scotts finest EGCG)

    basically it significantly reduces the fish burp potential, also tends to make it less apt to spoil.

    pretty sure that the 400's are not enterically coated, they come in 200ct and are kirkland brand (USP cert)

    freezing fish oil may affect its bioavailability... it will definitely affect pharmacokinetics.

    it will still have pharmacokinetics, they will just change because a frozen, very low temp oil, will have different permeability and other characteristics as well as it may affect the disolve rate of the gelatin. eventually it will warm up in your body, but how long that takes may affect its uptake and metabolism. (pharmacokinetics)

    that's because they drive there to your house with their own trucks. i think it's free if you make a big order, so definitely great for businesses.
