We only buy Carlson fish oil products. The brand was recommended by our naturopath because of its quality - apparently the oil is screened for toxins. This product gives us access to fish oil in which DHA is the star - which is great. The capsules are easy to swallow, though often I prick them and add them to food. Doing so, gives the food an umami fishiness that I like. If you don't want any of the fishiness just swallow the caps whole. Definitely recommended.
Very good price. Saves me a lot of money ordering on line.
This product was recommended to me by my nutritionist during my pregnancy due to its purity and high DHA content. I still use it now that I'm breastfeeding and I love that I don't get a fishy "burp-back".
I have used this product for several months. Initially gave me gas but then my system got used to it and I am very pleased with it. Was very glad to find it at Lucky Vitamin because the price was great compared to what I was paying.
