  • Salmon Oil or Cod Liver Oil?

    So I'm getting ready to place an order for Carlson's fish oil... but what is the difference between the salmon and cod liver oil? Which should I get and why? Thanks!

    Salmon oil - high omega 3s
    cod liver oil is high in A and D (but not in omega 3s, I think)

        If you are male your DHA should be a much high ratio than EPA. Not so much female
        but still DHA should be higher. Their are brands out there just gotta search. Here is a
        very good brand that I consume. They explain why.
