> Not to offend anyone who likes buying cheap, but I believe that quality is important so as to avoid heavy metal contamination. Maybe I'm just a sucker who bought a company's hype, but I believe what Nordic Naturals says about their purification process. I got their name plus omegabrite's from a doctor's list of reputable purveyors of fish oil supplements (sorry, can't remember who compiled the list but it had something to do with bipolarkids.org)

The two brands I trust are omegabrite (yes, they're pricey) for my kids (because the capsules are smaller) and nordic naturals for myself and the hub. http://www.nordicnaturals.com I get the high EPA formula.


If you feel concerned about the contaminant issue, then get the cleaner stuff I say. If I was giving fish oil to a child I would probably be more inclined to do that myself. However, I think just from the standpoint of "fishiness", there is quite a bit of variability in the "cheap" brands for comparable prices.
