5Nutrigold Triglycerides Omega-3 vs. Eight Ethyl Esters Forms Of Fish OilFeb 09, 2013
By RWM
*****
This is a side-by-side comparison of two triglycerides forms of fish oil (Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold and Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega), and eight ethyl esters forms of fish oil (OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, Now Ultra Omega-3, Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega, and Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3), with the purpose, in part, to distinguish the two forms of fish oil.

There are three major components of omega-3 in these products: EPA (which is good for your heart, circulatory system, lowering triglycerides, depression and mood orientation, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory for soothing joint pains), DHA (which is good for your mental acuity, or if you are pregnant, nursing an infant, or for children), and "other." Other omega-3s, like DPA and SDA, are types of fatty acids which are easily converted to EPA in the body. In most fish oils, the amount of these other fatty acids is low, but in highly concentrated oils, it can be a significant amount. The important components are EPA and DHA.

Nutrigold makes two forms of omega-3 fish oil, the triglycerides form and the ethyl esters form. Nordic Naturals makes only one form of omega-3 fish oil, the triglycerides form. There is much debate whether the quality of the triglycerides form of omega-3 fish oil is better than the ethyl esters form of omega-3 fish oil, or vice versa. It is my feeling that both forms of omega-3 fish oil are about the same quality-wise, for the reasons set forth below.

Bearing in mind that Nutrigold manufactures both kinds of omega-3 fish oil, its website has this to say about them:

"Most fish oil supplements are either available in Ethyl Ester form or the Triglyceride form. Structurally, the major difference between the two forms is that in Ethyl Ester, the fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are esterified to an ethanol backbone, while in TG, the fatty acids are esterified to a glycerol alcohol backbone; there are absolutely no differences in the two forms of fish oil in terms of stability. The vast majority of clinical studies examining supplemental Omega-3s have been performed on the Ethyl Ester form and results from studies comparing the relative bioavailability of the EE form versus the TG form have found increased bioavailability of the TG form in the short-term (2 weeks), but this difference disappears when fish oil is routinely supplemented and a steady state has been achieved over a longer period of time.

The scientific evidence currently available does not point to any significant differences between the two forms in terms of bioavailability or health benefits when taken over extended periods of time (which is the norm for most individuals) and the decision to supplement with the TG form versus the EE form is, in most cases, a matter of personal preference."

For the purposes of this comparison, I am going to assume the quality of the triglycerides form of fish oil and the ethyl esters form of fish oil is about the same.

BREAKDOWN: Here is a breakdown of these supplements.

IFOS: The International Fish Oil Standards Program ("IFOS") (Google "IFOS consumer reports") is an independent third party omega-3 testing organization that provides batch-specific summaries of a product's IFOS testing results. The reports include a 5-star rating for each product containing greater than 60% concentration of EPA and DHA per gram of fish oil, allowing consumers to compare fish oil products based on their safety, purity and quality. Some of this testing now includes radiation testing as a result of the Japanese Fukushima accident. Most of the highly rated omega-3 fish oil products are listed. Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold is listed as a five star omega-3 fish oil product, which is the highest rating attainable.

LABEL DESCRIPTION: I am favorably impressed when a company understates its product's omega-3 content on the label. OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil typically understates its product's potency on its labels. I have seen IFOS batch test results which place OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil's omega-3 potency as high as 94%, far higher than what is stated on its label. Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil and Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega also typically understate their products' omega-3 content on their labels.

POTENCY: Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula has the most omega-3 potency of those in this comparison (89%); followed by OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil (85%), Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold (85%), and Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega (85%); followed by Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega (77%); followed by Now Ultra Omega-3 (75%) and Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 (75%); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil (72%); followed by Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold (70%); and followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, which has the least omega-3 potency of those in this comparison (64%) .

PRICE PER PILL: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega ($.68 per gel cap) is the most expensive per pill of those in the comparison; followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula ($.58 per gel cap); followed by Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega ($.53 per gel cap); followed by OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil ($.48 per gel cap); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega ($.25 per gel cap) and Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil ($.25 per gel cap); followed by Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold ($.24 per gel cap); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold ($.21 per gel cap); and followed by Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 ($.15 per gel cap) ($.11 per gel cap), which is the least expensive per pill of those in the comparison.

PRICE PER 1000 MGS OMEGA-3: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega ($.74 per 1000 mgs omega-3) is the most expensive per 1000 mgs omega-3 of those in the comparison; followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula ($.54 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega ($.50 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil ($.44 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega ($.39 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil ($.38 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold ($.34 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold ($.19 per 1000 mgs omega-3); followed by Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 ($.17 per 1000 mgs omega-3); and followed by Now Ultra Omega-3 ($.14 per 1000 mgs omega-3), which is the least expensive per 1000 mgs of omega-3 of those in the comparison.

PILL SIZE: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil (1300 mgs) is the largest pill of those in this comparison; followed by Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold (1250 mgs) and Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega (1250 mgs); followed by Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula (1218 mgs); followed by Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega (1200 mgs); followed by Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega (1000 mgs), Now Ultra Omega-3 (1000 mgs), Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 (1000 mgs), and Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold (1000 mgs); and followed by Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil (900 mgs), which is the smallest pill of those in the comparison. In terms of size, all of these pills are manageable for most folks.

SOY CONTENT: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil, Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3 do, and Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold do not contain soy. Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, and Now Ultra Omega-3 contain soy.

GMO CONTENT: None of these supplements contain GMOs.

CHOLESTEROL CONTENT: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Fish Oil Omega-3 Gold, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, Now Ultra Omega-3, Barlean's Ideal 3 Omega, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold do not contain cholesterol. Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega, and Omapure Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3 Fish Oil contain cholesterol.

EPA/DHA RATIO: A high EPA to DHA ratio (more EPA than DHA) is beneficial for mood, inflammation, arthritis, heart and those concerned about their LDL cholesterol. A low EPA to DHA ratio (more DHA than EPA) is beneficial for pregnant/nursing women, children, those concerned about eyes, brain, memory, and those recovering from stroke or brain injury. DHA is mostly valuable for brain development in children 4 and under. After 5 years of age, the higher EPA portion is more important for focus, concentration, and behavior issues like ADHD.

ENTERIC COATING: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega, Now Ultra Omega-3, Innovix Triple Strength Omega-3, and Innovix Labs Pharma-Grade Omega-3 are some of the few omega-3 fish oil products that are enteric coated. Enteric coating is used to prevent fish oil capsules from being digested in the stomach, which can cause a "fishy reflux." However, this problem is limited to only low grade, poorly manufactured fish oil products. Highly purified fish oil supplements that are manufactured to maintain freshness do not generally produce this fishy reflux, especially if the product is taken with food as recommended. Further, the only people who experience fishy burps from even high quality fish oil supplements are those with sensitive GI tract issues, for whom enteric coating may provide some relief from fishy burps, but may also interfere with absorption of the key nutrients in the supplement.

There is some evidence that suggests that enteric coating is not required and may actually hinder or impede proper absorption of omega-3 fish oil. In my view, however, this body of evidence is not conclusive.

Bottom line, if you have sensitive GI tract issues and experience fishy burps from omega-3 fish oil supplements, you may want to consider an enteric coated product.

FISHY BURPS/ODOR: I have not noticed any fish burps or odor caused by any of these supplements, although I do not have GI tract issues so I'm probably not the best one to judge this aspect.

SUPERCRITICAL DUAL-PROCESS CO2 TECHNOLOGY: OmegaVia Pharma-Grade Fish Oil, Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula, and Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega are not molecularly distilled. They use a proprietary Supercritical Dual-Process CO2 technology which concentrates omega-3s, yielding unique selectivity of one of the most biologically active omega-3 fatty acids - EPA. Using less heat, less repeat processing, and natural carbon dioxide as a solvent, allows these products to reach peak concentrations approximating 100% EPA, omitting superfluous fats and fillers. 400% less heat than molecular distillation is used during the entire process, with no oxygen exposure. Natural CO2 is used as an alternative to organic solvents and protects the final product from oxidation. In my opinion, Supercritical Dual-Process CO2 technology is superior to molecular distillation.

VITAMIN D3: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega contains 1000 I.U. of Vitamin D3. Garden of Life Minami Nutrition Platinum Omega 3 Plus D3 Formula contains 300 I.U. of Vitamin D3. I don't believe this is terribly significant, as Vitamin D3 can be purchased for very little money, and lots of folks who take it consume more than 1000 I.U. daily.

LIPASE: Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega contains 4 mgs of Lipase, which is a fat digesting enzyme. Most omega-3 fish oil products do not contain Lipase. However, the human body produces more than adequate amounts of Lipase and, therefore, Norwegian Gold Ultimate Fish Oils Super Critical Omega reference to its benefits might be somewhat enthusiastic.

OMEGA-3 TEST: Anyone who is interested in having their omega-3 index tested can do so. A company called Omega Quant can provide the test. See, http://omegaquant.com/.

MEALS: Any ethyl esters based and triglycerides based omega-3 fish oils are best taken with a meal containing some fat, as they are more efficiently absorbed when taken with food.

OPINION: Nutrigold Triglyceride Omega-3 Gold is an excellent product. It is IFOS five star rated, it has a decent omega-3 potency (70%), it is molecularly distilled, it is soy free, it is GMO free, it is mercury free, it is cholesterol free, and it is inexpensive. On the other hand, it is not enteric coated, it is not vegetarian, and it is not certified Kosher.

I did not change my diet as it was already pretty good as a whole. I was prescribed Liptor and Lisinopril both of which I did not take during this period as I wanted to test. during the consult the doctor was impressed and they assumed I had been taking the prescribed medication. After revealing that I had indeed not taken either but was taking a potent fish oil supplement they to say the least was pretty impressed. Everyone is different of course but I prefer this over paying $84 dollars a month on Lipitor.

This fish oil is the only one I can tolerate without fishy taste or upset stomach. I am on my second bottle. It lowered my triglycerides from 288 to 180 and raised my HDL to 79. I take 2 a day. My cardiologist put me on fish oil.

It's a good product that I have been taking for 2 years. The only reason I do not buy it anymore is the drastic price increase. It went from ~$32 up to $45 so it is no longer a viable source. The cheapest source of the triglyceride version is Nordic Naturals Fish oil 16 oz.

5The best fish oil on the marketMar 20, 2013
By Will P
Compared to other fish oil, this is the best I have tried. For a while, I was enjoying Puritan Prides great deals on fish oil. However I learned that they source their fish oil off the coast of Chile, which is heavily polluted area of the ocean. The fish oil I got always smelled rancid and extremely fishy. These on the other hand are a lot better. I get no side effects and it is noticeably better smelling. They are certified by IFOS and they are about $20 dollars cheaper than the overpriced Nordic Naturals. Don't be fooled by other cheap fish oils with buy 1 get 1 free for 12 bucks. Spend the $35 on a bottle of HIGH quality fish oil.

I also recommend getting tryglyceride form because it has higher absorption, bioavailability and reaches peak blood plasma levels faster and higher than ethyl ester
