https://sg.iherb.com/pr/California-G...Softgels/62118 is Halal and the cheapest Omega 3 in its class. Right now, if you order any supplement, you can buy this at Bundled price of an additional US$2 discount which makes this a very good buy!!
this one cheap and good???

I think this one only cost S$8.90 in qoo10(local store)... maybe will buy 1 bottle to try out...

Nothing else to buy from iherb, so shipping is expensive...

This is the best buy if you need a omega 3 that uses fish based gelatin.
Look at the excel file, this product comes with a Certificate of Analysis which verifies the quality you would expect of an Omega 3.

If you are not bound by religious restriction, then the gelatin soft gel Omega 3 would be cheaper! I prefer the high concentration Omega 3 (600mg of EPA+DHA) Look at the excel file for the best value buy.


Normally for fish oil or krill oil, I buy those ifos/ikos certified.
IFOS certification are not commonly found for the popular brands sold on iHerb. Check out the list of reviews by EDF, Labdoor & CoA for Omega 3 in the excel file.

The excel file for for Omega 3 Capsules price value comparison: GET319.xls.

Happy hunting!

Cheerio!

The prices have gone up and yes, the Omega 3 prices are up to date.
https://sg.iherb.com/pr/now-foods-om...0-softgels/323
The Omega 3 (EPA+DHA) cost US16c per 1000mg

Spend a little more & go for the higher concentration 600mg Omega 3 (EPA+DHA). 600mg Omega 3 per capsule means the fish oil has to undergo an additional pass of distillation to achieve a higher potency. Higher purity also means less likelihood of oxidation.

BTW, higher potency may not necessarily mean it is more expensive. Check out the price value comparison tables in this excel file: GET319.xls & you'll find that the Best Value 600mg actually cost a fraction lower than the regular 300mg. So, yes, get a higher potency Omega 3, ie 600mg DHA+EPA per 1000mg capsule.

Omega 3 is an excellent choice for anyone thinking of starting supplements.

Do you know that the gelatine used in capsules are usually Bovine (Beef) or Porcine (Pork)? If you observe Religious restrictions, then you could consider Omega 3 capsules made of Fish Gelatine.

https://sg.iherb.com/pr/California-G...Softgels/62118 is Halal and the cheapest Omega 3 in its class. Right now, if you order any supplement, you can buy this at Bundled price of an additional US$2 discount which makes this a very good buy!!

Look at the tab, Omega 3 Capsules in this excel file for for the price value comparison: GET319.xls. Use this excel file template to do your own comparison & the best buy you can get.


Happy hunting!

If it is not mentioned, then you can safely say there is none.

The US is quite particular about the safety of their food prodts, eg nuts, because they cannot afford a bad publicity.

USD because exchange rate always fluctuates.

I recommend you keep the Omega 3 in the fridge after opening. Our tropical weather is not friendly to Omega 3.

Brands of the week! Up to 15% OFF



I have only tried ProLab's caffeine, so can't make any recommendations this week. But if you're looking for a quick pick me up, you can definitely consider it! It's a budget pre-workout

Diet and weight products - up to 10% OFF



TBH guys, the best way to lose weight is to fix your diet. Supplements and "miracle" foods are just distractions. Work on eating right and moving more and you will definitely see more improvements. Plus it's most probably cheaper
Need help getting started? Check out my quick guide here:
https://guavarilla.wordpress.com/201...fitness-guide/

Hydration Special - up to 10% OFF



Some good brands on discount! Scivation, AllMAx and Nuun. I have filtered the brands here:
https://iherb.co/2mwxDvp7

My personal favorite flavour for Scivation is Mango

Clearance


MusclePharm Natural, Pre-Workout, Natural Energy, Fresh Cut Watermelon, 0.77 lbs (348 g)

@ SGD29.50, it's currently cheaper than nutrifirst and GNC.

Not sure if it can be stacked with this promo:

Musclepharm 20% till end dec 2018

Grenade, Defend BCAA, Strawberry Mango, 13.76 oz (390 g)
^ This comes with a funnel! Very useful when you are stuck using small mouth water bottles.

Let me share with you why this is not the best multivit to buy.

Multivits tend to megadose and some ingredients could be just too massive for many folks.

1) Nature's Way, Alive! Once Daily, Men's Multi-Vitamin is a one tablet a day which means you cannot customise your supplement to yr needs, unlike Opt Nutrition which is 3 tabs & Orange T which is 6 tabs per serving.

2) it O/D on some vits which may do you more harm than good:
Vit A 150% & Vit E 400%
http://annals.org/aim/fullarticle/17...al-supplements
Folic Acid at 100% can also be problematic
http://www.nature.com/articles/pcan201416

3) it contains stuff that is not quite bioavailable like Zinc Oxide. A better subs would be zinc picolinate etc

4) It contains pretty poor quality ingredient like sulfate forms which I would avoid, like copper sulfate & manganese sulfate. There are better alternatives like copper gluconate, Cu glycinate, chelate etc
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-in...cupric-sulfate
It has also high qty of Selenium selenate
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/toxic-in...odium-selenate

Anyway, this is just my opinion. I just feel that you can get better brands that have better quality stuff, more variety of ingredients & cost even lower.

Earlier I mentioned in #1 , Opt Nutrition & Orange T. I am not recommending these because they are still not the best value for money.

Look at the tab, Multivits I Avoid in this excel file for useful notes & comparison: GET319.xls. Click on the links in that tab to get a good idea what to avoid. Happy hunting!

Cheerio!

Why do you even want to take multivitamin? Is it because you are eating erratically & junk food often?
You dont need a multivit if you are eating wholesome varied compete meaLs regularly.

Chia seeds as an added condiments to your breakfast cerals or drinks is a good idea. Some people put it in their gravy like curry.

Take your anti-inflammatory Omega 3 Fish oils regularly.

Consider getting Magnesium. It is not found widely in our diet so a good supplement is always useful.

My favorite choice is Mg Citrate. Click on the "Magnesium" tab in this excel file for price value comparison: GET319.xls Use that page & compare with your fav brands.
