> omega 3 mood County Life is one of the best, most are crap. check out the International fish oil standards rateing system. There is perscription fish oil, Lovsa FDA approved for triglyerides or colesteriol. I believe Nardic Naterals makes lovasa. I like omega mood's ratio of epa dha if memory serves me. 2.1 or higher is what I look for. I can't afford it anymore so eat wild salmon rare and hope that makes it to my brain. I buy bulk frozen salmon individuals packed on those factory ships, Do you think the fish oil is viable after being frozen, it should be right?
Absolutely. Freezing is an excellent way to preserve polyunsaturated fatty acids. If your fish, when thawed, does not have a "fishy" smell, then you can be assured that the fatty acids are good to go. The vacuum packing in those freezer packs severely limits oxidation of the fatty acids, which is further slowed by the low temperature.
Prescription fish oil is a cash grab, trying to create an unnecessary and artificial product out of a natural food concentrate.
