    Can anyone recommend a good fish oil brand?

    May I trouble you fine folks in recommending a good fish oil brand.

    I am steering clear of flax oil due to a connection with cancer or something like that, I am not saying this is true just something I heard from a couple people here.

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

    I take Theragran-M that I get at walgreens. It's $15 for 200 1200 mg caps.

    The list of benefits of fish oil are much more than I can memorize.

    Yes! In fact, the more I read about it, the more I believe fish oil should be the first on everyone's list of suppliments.

    Get a brand that it enteric coated.

    The Theragran-Ms I mentioned above are such a type.

    Thanks for the help all, I will actually be trying out FLAMEOUT from biotest as my first fish oil endeavor.

    macc_attack here is a link that will give you info on what fish oil can do

    Testosterone Nation - FLAMEOUT!

    That is also the fish oil I will be purchasing, I just hope it doesn't burn my wallet as I have to buy my supplements (excluding multivitamins as pharmacies provide just as good ones) from GNC.

    I'd recommend NOT buying flameout until you've done a thorough cost analysis. It just seems that $25 for 88 caps is not worth it.

    Thanks for the extra advice Cynic, and I couldn't find flameout anyway (The GNC I went to even said "does that exist?")

    Anyway, I need help again. Does anyone have anything besides Cynic's Thermagran recommendation?

    I would rather have enteric coated capsules instead of oil or something to avoid the burping...yech

    Does enteric coated brands say "enteric coated" on the bottle? or is it a guessing game?

    I recommend Nordic Natural, Carlson, or Escimo brand by Enzymatic Therapy. If yer tasting fish...it's rancid and should be avoided.

    I typically do a teaspoon of Nordic Natural's cod liver oil AM and before bed and then I do the individual Coromega fish oil orange flavored squeeze packets with each meal.

    I don't know anything about the brand Cynic is talking about so I can't comment to its qaulity.

    The Theragran-Ms are enteric coated caps.

    Nutrilite, one of the companies producing products for Quixtar, has extraordinary purification and processing facilities, and they make a top notch Omega 3 product. They also have a great sports nutrition line.
