Hi Everyone,

I am looking for the best fish oil supplement, caprylic acid, and strontium. Which brands do you recommend?

I have been using a fish oil supplement by Pharmanex. What are your thoughts about this brand?

Thanks for your help!

I don't know if it's the best, but I use Nordic Naturals fish oil. My LLMD recommended Carlson Laboratories brand fish oils.

I haven't heard of Pharmanex. There are a lot of options out there!

Just my two cents....

I agree that Carlson's makes the best fish oil, BUT Neptune Krill Oil is much better than any fish oil. It is far more bio-absorbable, works much better on fixing abnormal lipid ratios, and does not cause reflux belching, even at high doses.

I read the ingredients on some Pharmanex products and was not impressed with what you get for that price.

OK, here's my two cents,

Fish oil: I use Spectrum Fish Oil. The ingredients were scary for mercury (anchovies, mackerel and sardines plus natural Vit-E.) However, on the front it says "NO MERCURY, PCB's, LEAD." Also, "Third Party Purity Tested." Also, "Wild Caught Small Fish." I chose to trust them. I've used it for about 2 1/2 years, first at 4 or 5 gelcaps for awhile, then I cut to two. It's a lot cheaper in the 250 quantity size.

It's comes from Norway or Iceland waters.

I use their flax oil gelcaps,too.

I used Country Life for awhile, but it wasn't as good as Spectrum, which lowered my triglycerides a lot! Spectrum costs are lower than the refrigerated brands, here where I live. (But it says on the bottle to refrigerate after opening.) [lick]

Caprylic acid: I used Wild Oats Caprylicare and diluted the "other" ingredients with another caprylic product. I got more reasonable dosages of ingredients. As I recall I believe I took them a couple weeks. Worked well: got nice, red tongue. I used (just over) 3,000 caprylic acid--a high dosage of that--in a day.

My LLMD objects, so now I use Nystatin, for prevention.

Nordic Naturals-purified deep sea fish oil from anchovies and sardines.

Hey- maybe I should put them on my pizza! [Big Grin]
