    i was taking 10 a day of regular fish oil pills now I'm taking 5 a day of this stuff that is twice as concentrated with EPA/DHA.. As long as I get over a gram total of each I don't care.

    I'd just eat salmon/tuna, something along the lines of fish that's high in long-chained unsaturated fats about 2/3 times a week. Probably would cost less, thats if you're not allergic to fish

    Im just guessin since i've read a couple articles sayin that eating 1 or 2 things of tuna a week would meet the recommended daily requirements of DHA's and Omega-3's and such for a full week.

    The EPA/DHA content is high... but the price isn't the greatest. I'd rather take 1 extra pill than pay 2x as much.
