Full Ranking of The Best Fish Oil Supplements on The Market Today

by Glenn Reschke

The table below shows the ranking of the best fish oil supplement products in the world. If you've ever visited this site before, you know I have a real passion for identifying, researching, and analyzing the best health secrets, products, supplements, and ideas. I've been using omega-3 fish oil as a core supplement in my personal regime for many years.

To that end, I thought it would be useful to study, research, and where appropriate to test the products. Thus, this study was born. So, what is fish oil good for? Its health benefits are many and varied. For a complete recount, go to this page within this site.

However, I'm assuming you already know of its benefits and are seeking information as to what is the best fish oil supplement you can find. This page should help. (To sort and analyze the info in the grid, simply click on the column headers.)

Criteria Used in Ranking

The judgment criteria used in establishing the rankings was as follows

  • Molecularly distilled product
  • Produced with cGMP-compliant standards and facilities
  • Customer testimonials
  • Clinical testing
  • Ingredients
  • Sourcing of fish oil
  • Personal usage

You may see some discrepancy in the potency column with a product ranking lower yet having a good potency. Why is that? Because it's not the only criterion by which it's judged. Each product was judged separately using the criteria above.

Lastly to be sure there is some personal judgment employed by myself, the author of the study, as to what is the best product and what is not. I tried diligently to rank the products regardless of whether there is an affiliate program or not.

One thing I did find really interesting is that there were a large number of top quality fish oil supplement products, unlike in the multi-vitamin category. This is not totally surprising as fish oil pills or products are among the most clinically tested supplements in the world. They are also extremely popular the world over. Essentially, any product ranked 7.8 or higher is a good product. Those in the 8.0 range are really good and anything 9.0 or over is outstanding.

A product that is truly quality covers the full gambit of research, product creation in cGMP-compliant facilities with quality and is well received by customers who freely testify of the products efficacy. That is what you should be looking for.

What About Cost of The Study?

To have all of these products tested in a laboratory would have cost literally around $100,000 per product. To have just one of the supplements tested by ConsumerLab would have cost over $750,000 (Matthews, Why don't we have Consumer Lab test our products?, para. 13)! Needless to say, I didn't spend that, but I did test and research and analyze thoroughly the different products on the market and I've been doing it over the course of seven years.

If this study has been helpful to you, I hope you'll either share it via social media or click the Facebook like button at the top of the page. I hope this page has been helpful in determining the best fish oil supplement for you and/or your family.
