    Fish oil is one of the supplements that price does correlate with quality. You can get the NOW brand from your local grocery store for like 5 or 10$ a container, or you can go to a nutrition store online and get the best stuff "Nordic Naturals" for about 23$. Just my $.02

    current mens health mag has an article about how supps including vitamins have a bad track record for not having what they say they do, they had some brands they said were accurate, puritans pride, walmart brand (can't remember the name of their brand), nature made, centrum etc


    i personally take puritans pride vitamins and fish oil, usually stock up when they do 3 for 1 sale about twice a year

    I use their fish oil, ADAM multi and melatonin.

    They all work great.

    fish burps are the worst... ugh. The GNC ones I had before had some lemon flavoring but you would still get nasty fish burps.
