Puritan's Pride Fish Oil?


#1

They're cheap as hell, 600 caps for 23 bucks (360 mg EPA+DHA per cap), and I know consumerlab's testing on them came up acceptably, so I was wondering if anybody had personal experience with their fish oil 1200mg caps? Thanks much!


#2

If they are safe according to consumer labs, what is the question? :stuck_out_tongue:

They are cheap.

They are fish oil.

That's not much DHA/EPA per cap, so they may not be as good of a deal as you think.

I work for Vitamin World, a subsidiary of Nature's Bounty (who also manufacture's for Puritan's Pride) and aside from scoring well with consumer labs they've won manufacturer of the year a couple times. Anyway, it's good as far as meeting label claims.

Incidentally, we carry a 'super omega-3' with 500mg of EPA/DHA per 1000mg softgell (I use this one), so I imagine that Puritan's Pride may carry one as well as there is a lot of carry over between the product lines.

I am currently taken theirs. I think mine is called Super EPA. I have tried others, but with the price and the quality of their products, it is hard to beat. I really like their Green Source Multivitamin w/o Iron, real nice replacement for GNC MegaMan, IMHO.
