oh yes I saw that and I knew that part for a long time, hence why when I buy supplements it is the basics, not proprietary blends.

Its a great movie and poses a lot of moral questions about steroids as well..

It does list soy but still breaks out the EPA and DHA amounts

yea that was an option as well for me but wouldn't the soy be an issue in the long run or no?

From the cost perspective here's the breakdown for several types of fish oil - originally in comments here from GabeK:

Quote:
I did some quick math tonight…and found some interesting stuff amongst the fish oils I am familiar with:
Costco Non-Coated 400 Pill Bottle – $.08/gm EPA+DHA
Costco Coated 180 Pill Bottle – $.14/gm
Carlson’s Liquid Fish Oil 16.9oz – $.17/gm from VitaCost
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega Liquid 8oz – $.47/gm from VitaCost
I'd have to listen to the podcast again, but I think Robb mentioned that the less pure of a fish oil you get there's some possibility of GI issues (interestingly enough though he said you can't get mercury poisening from fish oil - didn't know that) and other issues that might arise... Personally, I think the Costco enteric brand might not be super-terrible if someone absolutely didn't want to drink it as a straight liquid. I'm going to try drinking it as a straight liquid and I don't even know if I'll be able to handle it. It may end up in my dog's food dish just like when I tried Greens+ haha.

Here's the math on different fish oil brands by Jae Chung I believe:

The one on iherb that I use (before the chart came out) is liquid ~.12 per 1000 mg EPA+DHA. Tastes decent.

I'm going to try that brand out, Ryan. I take 12g of epa/dha per day, so I will lower it to 9 and work my way back up based on blood work and feel.
