Seven Seas Cod Liver Oil in UK

Just wondered what everyone’s thoughts where on Seven Seas Extra High Strength Cod Liver Oil (liquid not caps)?
After learning about Flameout (and it’s price), I went scowering the high street for fish oil with a high DHA/EPA concentration, but was dismayed by the pitifull average amounts (around 200mg per severing).

Then I stumbled up this brand which states that per serving it contains 2300mg of DHA/EPA (ratio unknown), and 300ml will set you back only £6.

What do you guys think? Good deal? Is there a catch?

I usually just go into Holland & Barrett and buy whichever fish oil is on special…

Yeah me too, I tend to get either Salmon oil (high proportion of DHA) or the ‘fish oil’ at ~300mg combined per 1g capsule. 250 is usually about a tenner (i.e. supposedly half price), sometimes you have to by two but usually works out at that. I’ve been on ~10caps a day for quite a while.

A serving is 10g so its not that high, about satndard actually, 230mg per gram.

Myprotein Omega 3 liquid:

£8.50 for 500ml and per 5ml serving 825mg EPA, 550MG DHA. It’s flavoured too.

Sounds like a better deal! Can’t say I’ll miss the fishy breath and subsequently distant girlfriend, that I get with the unflavoured seven seas stuff.

Guess I didn’t realise that a cap is usually around 1 or 2g, so factoring that in, it’s not that highly concentrated.

Any preference on flavour? Strawberry/Orange?

I’ve only tried the strawberry so can’t compare the two, but it is definitely better than fishy breath! It barely has any taste at all, just a mild strawberry-ish aftertaste.

TTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

seriously.

Strawberry or orange flavour, mix with protein shakes.

strawberry goes with anything (really light taste), Orange is great with chocolate flavour protein. absolute DIRT with banana protein - which im stuck with for the next 2 weeks
