omegabrite is excellent stuff but their customer service is not very good. i have had delayed shipments and supply interruptions several times.

caveat emptor.

creaky, though partially lubricated, neurons.

I'm taking Carlson's liquid fishoil now. It is made in Norway. You get 40 doses for about $16. Each teaspoon has 800mg EPA / 600mg DHA. It's well.. oily, but it isn't fishy at all. I just take one teaspoon/day with a meal. AFter you open it you need to keep it in the fridge, though. It's not very portable either, but I just take one teaspoon and that is OK with me.

Another poster here (Noa) mentioned it, and I did some searching on the net about it and found many websites that sell it. I wondered if the two or three stores in the town I lived happened to carry it. They did-so I didn't need to order any. But, you can order it.

I'm new to this... so you are saying that cod liver oil is good for depression? I would like to hear more about this. How much do I need to take, and does it matter if it's the gelcaps or is the liquid form better? I guess my mother was right in forcing us to take our cod liver oil daily when we were children :)

The only problem with cod liver oil vs. Fish oil is that the cod liver oil contains a lot of Vitamin A and D, so you have to take that into account. Depending on how much vitamin A and D you already ingest, and depending on the amount of the oil you take, this could be a potential problem, if you take too much of these vitamins. Fish oil (not from livers) usually doesn't contain the vitamins. BTW, I think that the practice of giving kids cod liver oil was probably about giving them enough Vitamins A and D, before these were regularly added to milk.
