Good product but more than I can afford
I would recommend almost every product in the MenScience line... except this one.
Don't get me wrong, it is actually an excellent product (which is why I didn't just give it one star). The thing is that it is too pricey for me although autoship brings the price down.
If you are particularly loyal to the MenScience brand (and I CAN see why you would be!) it is still definitely a high-quality product, molecular distillation being the gold standard for Omega-3s, and focusing on the right ones. The ratio of Omega 3s to 6s in our diet should typically be between 1:1 and 1:4, but the typical modern American diet is closer to 1:30, and 9 is NOT an essential fatty acid (ie your body can make it, whereas 3's and 6's must be obtained from external sources) so the Omega 3-6-9 products on the market are a waste! And many Omega-3 formulations are largely comprised of ALA (α-Linolenic acid) which is a very cheap, abundant, and most importantly weak and ineffective Omega-3, so it's important to know what you're buying. A good product will generally omit ALA altogether. This Omega-3 formulation focuses on the BEST Omega-3s, EPA and DHA, DPA is decent too, and is an intermediary between the two, but is not particularly vital and the dose is quite low anyways.
There are 3 supplements that just about EVERYONE can benefit from taking, and a good Omega-3 formulation is one of them, along with vitamin D (D3 in particular) and a bioavailable, chelated form of magnesium (glycinate, taurinate, etc).
