Top 100 fish oil supplements by cost per gram of active omega-3 available

How are fish oil supplements ranked by cost?

For cost-conscious consumers, we rank the cheapest fish oil supplements based on both cost and effectiveness. We consider cost per available gram of EPA and DHA. 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. Then, we factor in cost by dividing the price of a container by the amount of DHA and EPA available in the container, considering both the nutrtional content per serving and the servings per container. Our methodology comprehensively factors in cost and bioavailability, and it can be useful for finding the cheapest and most effective fish oil supplement. However, always consider food allergies and medical conditions when choosing your fish oil supplement, and please consult with your doctor for medical advice.
