I've been using fish oils for 22 years. I originally started them to improve my skin; it worked in that regard--over several weeks my skin improved dramatically. What I didn't count on was the amazing difference it made for my joints. Arthritis was starting to set in. My fingers, knees and other joints were stiff and painful much of the time. Within a couple of months I noticed increased flexibility and decreased painfulness (I didn't attribute it to fish oil at first, but it was the only substantive change I made at that time). 22 years later I am completely free of arthritis-like symptoms. I spend most of the day on my feet, yet I'm pain-free and more flexible than people half my age. I believe that fish oil has had a beneficial effect on my blood pressure and cholesterol also. As my contemporaries talk about their knee replacements and viagra, I'm proud to say that "I'm all original, everything works, no prescriptions necessary." One of these capsules per day is enough, over time, to reap the same benefits. The enteric coating should entirely prevent "fish burps" and improve absorption. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.
Concerns about the EPA content

Not the smallest capsules, but a good concentration of EPA and DHA. No aftertaste, no burps. My only concern: Consumer Lab "found only 83.3% of claimed EPA". I don't know if this is a recurrent problem or an isolated one.

High concentration! Only 1 tablet needed, where many other brands need 3 tablets to gain the same amount. Expensive but cost effective as fewer tablets are needed. Enteric coated for better absorption & no fishy aftertaste. Very happy with this product - the whole family takes it.
No more fishburps

Farmaceutical grade fishoil very high in EPA/DHA fatty acids, you only need 1 softgel. Our diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and have excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. Healthy ratio omega-6 : omega-3 intake is about 2-4 : 1, actual intake is 15 : 1 and higher! Excessive amounts of omega-6 and polyunsaturated fatty acids can cause serious health problems. Omega-3 supplements can be effective to prevent or in case of heart disease, high bloodpressure, diabetes, migraine, joint pain, mental disorders, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and many more. For me Omega-3 works well for migraine and joint pain. I switched from Natural Factors softgels to enteric coated softgels because of fishburps.Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

I've been hunting for an Omega 3 product with the percentages recommended on Dr. Oz. Finally found it at iHerb - and at a great price.
