Does anyone have any experience with NSI products, particularly their Vit D3 and fish oil? From Vitacost I can get 365 Vit D3 softgels (5000 IUs) for $16.99 and 240 fish oil softgels (1200mg EPA/DHA and 2126mg total fish oil per two) for $21.99. My wife has been taking Nordical Naturals Ultimate Omega (1100 EPA/DHA and 1280 total fish oil per two), but if NSI is a good product I'd like to try it since it's less than half the cost of the NN.

iherb has the same priced D3 although they have a better product now.... 360 10,000 IU pills for like 22 or something. Saves about 10 bucks for the same amount of IUs.

Taking 10,000 IU every other day is the same as taking 5,000 IU everyday because it's fat soluble so the effects are cumulative over a 2-3 weeks not days. If that was a concern that is. I'm taking 10k per day regardless for months now.

Also, spreadsheet on fish oil:

That fish oil you have above comes out to about 13 cents per 1g EPA+DHA so it's not the least expensive. You can find some cheaper stuff.
