Top 100 fish oil supplements by potency

How are fish oil supplements ranked by potency?

The potency score is based on the EPA and DHA levels per serving in each fish oil supplement. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are active forms of omega-3, and they are the omega-3 fatty acids most easily used by the body. Other forms of omega-3 are hard for the body to convert for active use. Therefore, when we consider the potency of a fish oil supplement, we consider only the EPA and DHA availability per serving. The potency score is out of 100, and it is proportional to the milligrams of active omega-3 fatty acids per serving in the fish oil supplement. Though the potency score does not consider factors such as cost or other nutrition content, it is an excellent measure of the bioavailability of omega-3 fatty acids. Many might find it useful to consider the potency score as a primary factor in choosing which fish oil supplement to consume. However, always consider food allergies and medical conditions when choosing your fish oil supplement, and please consult with your doctor for medical advice.
