DHA & EPA InformationAug 12, 2011
By C. Malone
*Short Answer (per softgell)*
DHA: 100 mg
EPA: 200 mg
Each capsule contains 9 - 12.5% DHA and 18 - 22% EPA.
Assuming the minimum, each 1,000 mg capsule contains
DHA: 1000 * .09 = 90 mg
EPA: 1000 * .18 = 180 mg
Assuming the maximum, each 1,000 mg capsule contains
DHA: 1000 * .125 = 125 mg
EPA: 1000 * .22 = 220 mg
*How I found out*
I gave this product a look after reading that it was Consumer Reports recommended fish oil supplement.
Upon receipt I found no DHA / EPA Info on the bottle. Called Costco's Vitamin info line and was told that each capsule contains 9 - 12.5% DHA and 18 - 22% EPA.
I try to get 1.5 grams of DHA per week and taking three of these daily, as the bottle recommends, accomplishes this in a very cost effective manner.

Fish Oil = Great Health, Kirkland = Great ValueMar 31, 2008
I have only been taking the pills for about a month now, so I can't necessarily say how well they work. I can say that I was really happy to see how big this bottle was when it arrived. Well worth the price!
Update November 2008:
I have now been taking these pills for 8 months and in a recent check-up the doctor told me my cholesterol was at amazing levels.
My 2008 cholesterol levels:
Total Cholesterol = 175 mg/dl (recommended below 200 mg/dl)
HDL Cholesterol = 95 mg/dl (recommended above 50 mg/dl)
LDL Cholesterol = N/A (below 100 mg/dl)
The doctor specifically told me that it was amazing for a 30 year old male to have an HDL of 95 and an LDL that was so low it did not register.
My 2007 cholesterol levels:
Total Cholesterol = 198 mg/dl (recommended below 200 mg/dl)
HDL Cholesterol = 61 mg/dl (recommended above 50 mg/dl)
LDL Cholesterol = 127 (below 100 mg/dl)
Aside from taking these pills my diet has remained the same. This suggests that these pills have done wonders for my cholesterol levels
While less scientific, I have also witnessed the following benefits
- Better Skin (less breakouts/more even color)
- Less joint pain (I have had bad knees from years of Running)
- Stronger hair
- More energy (I used to always want a nap at 3pm)
This change in my body was gradual and there is great potential that it was a result of other things in my life. I won't claim these pills are a miracle substance, however, the cholesterol improvement alone should be enough proof that these pills are worth adding to your diet

Triglycerides vs. Ethyl EstersAug 01, 2012
Fish oil supplements come in two forms: Triglycerides (TG) and Ethyl Esters (EE). Majority of fish oil supplements on the market is Ethyl Esters (EE) because it's much cheaper to produce EE than TG.
However EE is a synthetic substrate from micro distillation of crude fish oil and ethanol. So it's not really a "natural" supplement. EE also produces more side effects than TG because it's a synthetic substrate.
Michael Gross, MD, and Susan Klein, ND wrote an article on Triglycerides vs. Ethyl Esters, it's on the net. It's a good reading material.
This Kirland fish oil is using EE, that explains the low price. It's a good option if you can't afford the TG. But if you have a sensitive stomach and need to take fish oil, then look for one made with TG.

Review from WebMDNov 29, 2012
By E. Yingling
Putting Fish Oil Supplements to the Test
For the report, the consumer agency purchased three lots of 15 different top-selling brands of fish oil supplements online and in the New York metropolitan area.
The samples were sent to a lab where they were tested for contaminants as well as spoilage and whether they disintegrated properly.
Two of the three samples of Kirkland Signature Enteric 1200 fish oil supplements had an enteric coating (designed to prevent a fishy aftertaste) that did not disintegrate properly. The coating may break up in the stomach rather than in the small intestine, as desired for proper absorption by the body.
Nine brands passed all quality measures tested, including:
Spring Valley Omega-3
Walgreens Omega-3 Concentrate
Barlean's Organic Oils EPA-DHA
Nature Made 1,200 MG
The Vitamin Shoppe Meg-3 EPA-DHA
Carlson Super Omega-3 Gems
Norwegian Gold Ultimate Critical Omega
Nature's Way Fisol

one stroke is enoughAug 06, 2006
By Joseph Lawrence
Not a day goes by that I don't use these gelcaps, ever since my stroke 6 years ago. Not only that, but now I also purchase them for my mother. who just turned 80 in July. Her doctor said her cholesterol results lowered over 40 points in just 2 months after starting to use this product. My results changed dramatically from high triglycerides + high blood pressure to an average range within normal limits. Both doctors said to keep this regimen since it is definitely helping because diets alone and medications weren't enough to give these kind of results.
I was impressed with the order because of two features...professional packing and extra gelcaps (increased from 300 to 400) compared to my last purchase from another seller.
I researched this product a lot and strength quality was also improved in this order...my last order came in a manila folder without any kind of cushioning...this one came in a box with airpad protection. I will definitely re-order from this seller next time
