Default ahh which to choose

hey guys,

i live in costa rica, and there are only a couple fish oil options. i ordered a decent supply of carlson's liquid kind which is oft-suggested, but since i ordered them around feb1 and i'm just now finished with the customs issues in importing it, i decided to pick something locally. as far as i know, my options are:

"Twin Lab" Omega 3 Capsules (not emulsified... picture here [everything safe, it's just a picture of a bottle of pills] http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.c..._1947_56967380

"Nature Made" Omega 3 capsules [also everything safe] http://a1468.g.akamai.net/f/1468/580.../77210/300.jpg

and there is also a GNC. I barely have ever been into a GNC, but I do remember the last time I was there noticing several Omega 3/fish oil options (much like their website). price is not an issue, just looking for the best possible option of the three. so yeah.. which should i buy.

thanks

edit: actually, if anyone has any comments on any other gnc products they'd be appreciated, as here they're one of basically two stores where one can find such things (and the other is perhaps even more geared towards body builders, etc.)

What does everyone do as far as fish oil when you travel? I know the liquid stuff needs to be refrigerated. Just go to capsules when on the road?

Michael,
I need to know the EPA/DHA content of those supps.

The other main thing is to find out if they are free of toxic metals, solvents, and other nasties. Not good to take in bad stuff with the good...

On vacations, I take pills with me--I don't worry about refrigeration on trips, but the bottle at home stays in the fridge.

At home, I use liquids.
