Hey Tony, I am in Singapore as well currently
iherb's having a 30% discount on DHL till 31 Jan isn't it?

Good to hear that you haven't had a glass bottle break yet. I caught the extra 10% discount on popular brands in December and got some NOW Foods fish oil and Vit D... enough to last a couple of months. Hopefully iherb will offer another DHL discount towards mid-year and I'll try the fish oil Steven takes. Didn't know about the risk of aluminium leaching into the fish oil.....

What do you usually order from iherb?

I usually order every few months, i think even with the postal from the US, nearly everything works out cheaper than Singapore where things like vitamin C can cost 40 dollars a bottle!
Usually get vit D, fish oil(carlsons), magnesium glycinate, zinc, bcaas, curcumin...

Has anyone noticed that the EPA and DHA in Nature's Answer's fish oil have both dropped while price has remained the same? The same has happened for Jarrow Balance but with a price increase.

Hmmm, it did drop from 1300 mg EPA+DHA to 1100 mg EPA+DHA per serving.

That sucks...

It seems like most fish oil supplements are doing that though.

I know there was a big fuss about kirkland fish oil from costco dropping their EPA+DHA content total off the label or something... jarrow and now nature's answer dropping their content kinda sucks too.

Maybe it's because of shortage in fish or something?

Not sure... sucks for us though. :\

It was off the label at one time but the bottle I ordered last month (after using Jarrow's for a while) had it back on there.

Yeah... I've liked Jarrow much more than Kirkland :/

Was about to order some bottles of Nature's Answer yesterday, and double checked my spreadsheet and found out about the drops. Within the higher EPA/DHA per serving range, Nature's Answer still is cheapest. Within the 180/120 EPA/DHA per pill type of range, I think NOW Foods' 500 pill bottle is the cheapest.
