Vitacost Vegan EPA - DHA Featuring Life'sOMEGA(tm) -- 600 mg - 60 Vegan Softgels
Much easier to tolerate than fish oil
I wanted an Omega supplement but was unable to tolerate the fish oil due to burping up yucky after taste. These work well, no problems at all. Thanks!

I tried to take many brands of Fish Oil, as my dr recommended. I HATE fish and after trying many brands which promised me "No Fish Burps" and "No Fishy Aftertaste" I kept on searching. I read an article somewhere about the harm of taking fish oil, as if it is not refrigerated, it quickly becomes rancid. Information is sometimes so contradictory, but I started researching vegan alternatives to fish oil and decided to give this Vitacost non-fish oil alternative a try. I love it! No gross fish taste, burps or gross stuff. The price is reasonable, especially if you catch a BOGO. This is now part of my daily regimen.

Great dosage and price
I have to disagree with some of these comments saying it isn't good value for money. It has 40g of DHA and 50g EPA more than the competitor and most of the time can get it on BOGO. Great all round vegan source of omega 3's.

Overpriced compared to competition
This is rated poorly because it's twice as expensive as the alternative brand.
This product has the following per 2 capsules:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids 600 mg
DHA 360 mg
EPA 180 mg
30 servings per bottle
Alternative brand Amerifit Nutrition Ovega-3 has the following per 1 capsule:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids 500 mg
DHA 320 mg
EPA 130 mg
60 servings per bottle
The Vitacost brand requires double the pills for virtually the same amount of DHA/EPA and is more expensive. That is why the Amerifit brand is constantly out of stock. The Vitacost brand should cost half as much when you consider the cost and what you're getting in each serving.

No problems with smell and aftertaste
After experiencing the fish taste throughout the day from taking fish oil, and after receiving two bottles of krill oil with broken capsuls which smelled fouly of dead fish even on the outside of the closed bottles, this product was quite wonderful. --no noticeable taste, no aftertaste, no smell.
