  • Australians - can anyone recommend a good quality fish oil

    Can anyone suggest a good quality fish oil (Omega 3) available in Australia?

    I have been taking a liquid oil as I heard it was better than caps, but want to make sure Im getting a good quality product for my money.

    Also, is it better to keep in the fridge? And what sort of shelf life should I expect?

    Thanks

    Edit: I just use capsules

      I use Ethical Nutrients high strength liquid fish oil. Pretty sure I saw it recommended on this forum a while back so I started using it. I'm pretty happy with the results although it is more expensive. Would be interested if someone suggested something superior.

      And yes, you have to refrigerate once opened, and if you do so, there shouldn't be any issues with shelf life. If used regularly, you'll consume way before the used by date.

        Cheers Tone, appreciate the [second] recommendation.

        I was using metagenics liquid fish oil which I could only get via a naturopath, but that too was very expensive and not practical.

        Thanks

          The best one I have found is the Nordic Naturals brand cod liver oil. I get the one with the higher level of Vitamin D. It has no fishy flavour or aftertaste. This brand was recommended by a Naturopath as the most pure oil on the market, unfortunately it isn't cheap.......
          It also needs to be refrigerated after opening.

              With fish the price it is here, you can understand why many people find fish oil the more affordable option.

                Yeah, most seafood makes me nauseous. So need to supplement.

                ... well, want to supplement.

                  a lot of people in history never ate fish and they did ok.

                    I use Thompsons, which was recommended by a naturopath. I found it cheap at one of those discount chemist warehouses, and it was fresher too, than at the naturopathy store. I store it in the fridge.

                      Really? Quality high fat fish can be had at modest prices. While I prefer to catch fish, I recently bought garfish at about $10/kg. Blue mackerel and even yellowtail scad are cheap. Just have to work out how to prepare it. There is a lot of prejudice against oily fish because they tend to be more strongly flavoured and are often used as bait. Try them as sashimi

                        Peril, I don't know where you get your fish from, but you're lucky! There's no supplier anywhere sensibly near me that offers any fish I actually like at a decent price, so sadly I don't often have fresh fish.

                        And sashimi = *yeuuuccchhhh* as far as I'm concerned. Just can't do it.

                          I use Thompson's Salmon oil. Also eat fish at least once a week.

                              I wouldn't recommend you get it from Woolworths. The other week I saw a huge shipment delivery of vitamins sitting in the midday sun in the loading dock for at least half an hour. I'm pretty sure that breached the "store in a cool dry place" instructions.
