Nordic Naturals makes my favorite fish oil on the market—in fact, I like it so much I chew the capsules! Its high-potency products are tested for purity, are always super fresh, and always contain the superior triglyceride form of EPA and DHA fatty acids—equivalent to what you'd find in food! Check out Nordic Naturals here!
