User reviews

I've been taking these twice daily for over a year, as recommended by my doctor to treat mild dysthymia and anxiety/stress. It's definitely been effective, and I would happily continue taking it, except for one problem: They've been jacking up the cost consistently, and it's practically doubled in price every time I've bought it, every 3-4 months, over the last year.When i first started taking this, it was $18 a bottle, and it was a good, affordable buy.Then it was $32, and I was like "well, it works, so I guess it's worth it."Then it was $49, and I spent almost an hour looking for a cheaper alternative before resigning myself to buying it again, for lack of other options.Now it's $80. That's simply too much and I refuse to be taken for a ride by these excessive price hikes any further. I don't care if I have to swallow 5x as many pills in lower concentrations at this point, it's just not worth the cost for this one. Shame on the manufacturers and sellers for their abusive pricing tactics to corner the market, get people hooked, and abuse their newfound monopoly.EDIT: Since a lot of people responding to this looking for alternatives: I settled on Sports Research Triple Strength 1250mg fish oil which is also available here on Amazon at a more reasonable price.
The manufacturer is apparently changing the packaging so I think that is why there is no stock being sold directly by Amazon at the moment for the original price. All of the other sellers doubled the cost for the old packaging! I bought the new one from Herbal Providers.The new packaging comes in a heavy glass (or is it really hard plastic?) jar that's around one pound. I do not feel safe with this jar at the edge of the cabinet as it might be breakable. I wish they didn't change the packaging.-UPDATE 9/6/2016-I just checked, they recently hiked up the price on Herbal Providers too! I think Nutrigold is trying to hide their inflated pricing by changing the packaging. Why else would they change something that didn't need to be changed in the first place? Now I might have to look for a cheaper alternative after I finish this bottle. This is absolutely ridiculous. Such a shame. I'm knocking off a star.-UPDATE- 2/11/2017I'm starting to run out of my last batch of tablets so I found an old user review I had found to answer someone's question that I also used for considering my last purchase a while back. It's an older review, but the author "RWM" is no longer on Amazon apparently so that could be something to consider. As a Disclaimer, the information below is not mine at all! I'm just pasting it here cause it could be useful for anyone else who reads reviews, especially with these rising prices. I have no idea if the other brands made changes since his or her review in 2015, so again, take it all with a grain of salt:*****This is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading omega-3 fish oil supplements: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, Now Ultra Omega-3, UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3.There are three major components of omega-3 in these products: EPA (which is good for your heart, circulatory system, lowering triglycerides, depression and mood orientation, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory for soothing joint pains), DHA (which is good for your mental acuity, or if you are pregnant, nursing an infant, or for children), and "other." Other omega-3s, like DPA and SDA, are types of fatty acids which are easily converted to EPA in the body. In most fish oils, the amount of these other fatty acids is low, but in highly concentrated oils, it can be a significant amount. The important components are EPA and DHA.BREAKDOWN: Here is a breakdown of these supplements.OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil (See, OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, 1300 mg Enteric Burp-Free Capsule

The reports include a 5-star rating for each product containing greater than 60% concentration of EPA and DHA per gram of fish oil, allowing consumers to compare fish oil products based on their safety, purity and quality. Some of this testing now includes radiation testing as a result of the Japanese Fukushima accident. Most of the highly rated omega-3 fish oil products are listed. Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold is listed as a five star omega-3 fish oil product, which is the highest rating attainable.LABEL DESCRIPTION: I am favorably impressed when a company understates its product's omega-3 content on the label. OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil typically understates its product's potency on its labels. I have seen IFOS batch test results which place OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil's omega-3 potency as high as 94%, far higher than what is stated on its label. Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil and Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega also typically understate their products' omega-3 content on their labels.POTENCY: UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 (91%) has the most omega-3 potency of those in the comparison; followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula (89%); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold (85%) and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 (85%); followed by Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega (77%); followed by Now Ultra Omega-3 (75%) and Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 (75%); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil (72%); and followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega (64%), which has the least omega-3 potency of those in the comparison.PRICE PER PILL: UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 ($.73 per gel cap) is the most expensive per pill of those in the comparison; followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula ($.62 per gel cap) and Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega ($.64 per gel cap); followed by OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil ($.48 per gel cap); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega ($.33 per gel cap); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil ($.25 per gel cap); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold ($.21 per gel cap); followed by Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 ($.15 per gel cap); followed by Now Ultra Omega-3 ($.13 per gel cap); and followed by Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 ($.10 per gel cap), which is the least expensive per pill of those in the comparison.PRICE PER 1000 MGS OMEGA-3: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega ($.67 per 1000 mgs omega-3) is the most expensive per 1000 mgs omega-3 of those in the comparison; followed by UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 ($.64 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula ($.57 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega ($.51 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil ($.44 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil ($.38 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 ($.20 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold ($.19 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Now Ultra Omega-3 ($.19 per 1000 mgs omega-3); and followed by Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 ($.17 per 1000 mgs omega-3), which is the least expensive per 1000 mgs of omega-3 of those in the comparison.PILL SIZE: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil (1300 mgs) is the largest pill of those in the comparison; followed by UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 (1266 mgs); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold (1250 mgs); followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula (1218 mgs); followed by Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega (1200 mgs); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega (1000 mgs), Now Ultra Omega-3 (1000 mgs), and Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 (1000 mgs); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil (900 mgs); and followed by Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 (589 mgs), which is the smallest pill of those in the comparison. In terms of size, all of these pills are manageable for most folks.SOY CONTENT: Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 do not contain soy. Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula and Now Ultra Omega-3 contain soy.GMO CONTENT: None of these supplements contain GMOs.CHOLESTEROL CONTENT: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, Now Ultra Omega-3, UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 do not contain cholesterol. Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, and Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega contain cholesterol.EPA/DHA RATIO: A high EPA to DHA ratio (more EPA than DHA) is beneficial for mood, inflammation, arthritis, heart and those concerned about their LDL cholesterol. A low EPA to DHA ratio (more DHA than EPA) is beneficial for pregnant/nursing women, children, those concerned about eyes, brain, memory, and those recovering from stroke or brain injury. DHA is mostly valuable for brain development in children 4 and under. After 5 years of age, the higher EPA portion is more important for focus, concentration, and behavior issues like ADHD.ENTERIC COATING: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Now Ultra Omega-3, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 are some of the few omega-3 fish oil products that are enteric coated. Enteric coating is used to prevent fish oil capsules from being digested in the stomach, which can cause a "fishy reflux." However, this problem is limited to only low grade, poorly manufactured fish oil products. Highly purified fish oil supplements that are manufactured to maintain freshness do not generally produce this fishy reflux, especially if the product is taken with food as recommended. Further, the only people who experience fishy burps from even high quality fish oil supplements are those with sensitive GI tract issues, for whom enteric coating may provide some relief from fishy burps, but may also interfere with absorption of the key nutrients in the supplement.There is some evidence that suggests that enteric coating is not required and may actually hinder or impede proper absorption of omega-3 fish oil. In my view, however, this body of evidence is not conclusive.Bottom line, if you have sensitive GI tract issues and experience fishy burps from omega-3 fish oil supplements, you may want to consider an enteric coated product.FISHY BURPS/ODOR: I have not noticed any fish burps or odor caused by any of these supplements, although I do not have GI tract issues so I'm probably not the best one to judge this aspect.SUPERCRITICAL DUAL-PROCESS CO2 TECHNOLOGY: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, and UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 are not molecularly distilled. They use a proprietary Supercritical Dual-Process CO2 technology which concentrates omega-3s, yielding unique selectivity of one of the most biologically active omega-3 fatty acids - EPA. Using less heat, less repeat processing, and natural carbon dioxide as a solvent, allows these products to reach peak concentrations approximating 100% EPA, omitting superfluous fats and fillers. 400% less heat than molecular distillation is used during the entire process, with no oxygen exposure. Natural CO2 is used as an alternative to organic solvents and protects the final product from oxidation. In my opinion, Supercritical Dual-Process CO2 technology is superior to molecular distillation.VITAMIN D3: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega and UnoCardio 1000 + Vitamin D 1000 contain 1000 I.U. of Vitamin D3. Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula contains 300 I.U. of Vitamin D3. I don't believe this is terribly significant, as Vitamin D3 can be purchased for very little money, and lots of folks who take it consume more than 1000 I.U. daily.LIPASE: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega contains 4 mgs of Lipase, which is a fat digesting enzyme. Most omega-3 fish oil products do not contain Lipase. However, the human body produces more than adequate amounts of Lipase and, therefore, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega's reference to its benefits might be somewhat enthusiastic.OMEGA-3 TEST: Anyone who is interested in having their omega-3 index tested can do so. There are two companies I would recommend: Omega Quant (see, http://omegaquant.com/0) or WHC (see, http://www.omega-3-index.com/en/index.php).MEALS: Any ethyl esters based and triglycerides based omega-3 fish oils are best taken with a meal containing some fat, as they are more efficiently absorbed when taken with food.THE LOVAZA COMPARISON: Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold is inexpensive for a high grade fish oil product. However, by comparison with the popular and well-known FDA approved prescription drug, Lovaza, which is made from fish oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold is cheap. Each Lovaza 1000 mg capsule has 900 mgs of omega-3 fish oil (465 mgs of EPA, 375 mgs of DHA, and 60 mgs of Other). Each Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold gel cap has 1060 mgs of omega-3 fish oil (750 mgs of EPA, 250 mgs of DHA, and 60 of Other). Lovaza costs about $260.00 for a bottle of 120 pills, or about $2.17 per pill. Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold costs about $37.00 for a bottle of 180 gel caps, or about $.21 per gel cap. You get more omega-3 per gel cap from OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil than you do from Lovaza at a fraction of the cost, and it is non-prescriptive. All of this poses an interesting question for Lovaza users: If Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold has more omega-3 potency than Lovaza per gel cap at a fraction of the cost, why not use it instead of Lovaza? This is a question Lovaza users may want to ask their physicians, pharmacists or nutritionists.OPINION: Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold is an excellent product.

When I received this bottle, all of the caplets were stuck together inside. I was able to get the caplets out to see what the problem was. What I found was that 14 of the caplets were cracked and had seeped oil out into the rest of the bottle, causing all the caplets to stick together. During the process of handling them, I got a terrible fish oil smell on my hands that was very difficult to remove. I think there may be something wrong with the quality of this product. I am wondering why there were cracked caplets inside. This is the first bottle that I have ordered with this new label. When I have ordered this product before with the older label, I never had this problem and the product worked very well. I suspect that a different manufacturer is making this product now, hence the new label, and that it may be inferior.
I have to say, even with this potency, not one burp of fish. Perfect and if the bottle is not cold and kept at room temperature, the capsules should be soft enough to take no problem. I take a lot of meds and they all go first thing in the morning. The capsules were cold too, but I will be more careful next time. The capsules really are no bigger than other capsules. As far as dissolving in the Large Intestine, I'm sure it does and that is where it needs to dissolve in order to work. I will continue with these, a little pricey, but worth it I feel.
