We have just completed reviewing 28 different fish oil products. Here is our review process:
1. Analyze – We research and test each product individually.
2. Collection – We collect user reviews from people who have been using the product for 3 or more months to see their health results.
3. Recommendation – We compile data and recommend the best products on the market.
So which fish oil products came out on top?
WINNER – Nordic Naturals
We like Nordic Naturals because it has the optimal blend of EPA and DHA and the company has a stellar reputation. It is also pharmaceutical grade. The packaging is pretty boring and it is a little bit pricey but well worth it.
Reviewers we surveyed were very pleased with Nordic Naturals. They found the soft gels were easy to take with no bad aftertaste and didn’t upset their stomachs. Several user reported decreases in blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
2nd Place – Carlson Fish Oil
We liked Carlson’s due to strong quality control and different flavor options.
Reviewers we surveyed were also quite pleased with Carlson’s. The oil is a liquid, which some prefer but some reviewers also reported stomach pain and fishy flavored burps. You may want to consider a soft gel if this is an issue for you.
3rd Place – Nature Made Fish
Nature Made comes in as a strong 3rd place finisher. The 1200mg soft gels contain plenty of Omega 3’s but may be too large for some to swallow.
Reviewers we surveyed had mixed opinions on Nature Made. Many liked the larger soft gels because they had to take less pills (mostly those taking higher doses to reduce blood pressure). The pills were too large for about 20% of our reviewers to swallow.
