I’ve re-purchased this product a lot of times. I started taking supplements religiously when covid started last March 2020, and I’ve only been sick once in 1.5 years. (I have low immune system so I usually get sick at least 5x/yr!) Here’s my routine: Before breakfast: Collagen After lunch: garlic+fishoil+vitamin D After dinner: vitamin K+coq10 Before bedtime: probiotic

The product is rated as 5 🌟 based on the classification of IFOS. Each star is given after confirmed compliance with international standards for fish oil (each batch goes through confirmatory testing). Contaminants commonly detected in fish oil omega-3 supplements: Total PCBs (Polychlorinated Biphenyls); Dioxins and Furans; Dioxin-Like PCBs; Mercury; Lead; Inorganic Arsenic; Cadmium Why are these chemicals found in fish oil in the first place? They enter the environment from industrial activity and persist for a long time, bioaccumulating in large fatty fish. This means that oil derived from these fish could contain too-high concentrations of contaminants. There’s no way to tell if your supplement is contaminated just by looking at it, or even by reading the label (companies typically only have to show testing documentation to sell legally, and there’s no guarantee of accuracy or legitimacy). Only laboratory testing can tell you for certain.

Been taking for a month. It’s odourless. I love it. I have been taking other fish oil brand which claim to be odourless, but surprisingly I also smell the fish oil when I burp. It has very high EPA/ DHA so taking one capsule is good enough. It’s better than taking the low concentration one with more capsule according to my pharmacist recommendation. Highly recommended

These EPA/DHA softgels contain 480 mg of EPA and 320 mg of DHA in triglyceride form. Most fish oils on the market come in the ethyl ester form, while these softgels are in the triglyceride form. There is currently a dearth of research on the advantages of the triglyceride form implying greater bioavailability (one study showing short-term advantages of the triglyceride form and one study in dyslipidemic subjects). Overall, not enough evidence to convince me to continue taking this triglyceride form. I have switched back to California Gold's regular EPA/DHA products.

Omega-3 is one of my must have supplements, and I also like this brand because of the quality. I’ve been taking one softgel daily with food, and I believe it works great for me. Easy to swallow, and no smell. I’ll keep taking this for my health.

I have taken the package with 90 soft gels and found that the product is Great and provide High quality. The lemon taste in the ingredient removes the fish taste. I have usually taken it on daily basis and found some benefits specially on memory and eye pain. Really advise to take it

I am a high school student who is always looking for a boost in my day to help me get through the day. I stumbled across this vitamin and have been using it consistently for the past few weeks. What I love about this vitamin is that it improves my mood, gives me more energy, and has helped me fight against sickness. No other supplements have been able to do

I had been looking for a good vitamin supplement to take to help boost my mood and energy. I finally found this one and it didn't disappoint. It was easy to take, very affordable and you could visibly tell the difference in how you felt after starting to take them. If you need a boost, I would recommend trying these vitamins out

I am not a big believer in vitamins, but this vitamin is the best! I have been taking it for over 2 months now and everything has been going smoothly. I am feeling great, my mood has improved and my immunity is at its best. All the other supplements I have tried before never seemed to work as well or last me this long.
