Review: Kirkland Signature Natural Fish Oil Concentrate
Kirkland Signature fish supply comes from deep ocean waters. Our fish oil is not supplied from farm-raised fish. State-of-the-art molecular distillation process is used to remove PCBs and dioxins which guarantees purity and potency. The fish oil is derived from a variety of fish species, to maximize omega-3 fatty acid concentration. Fish Oil naturally contains the Omega-3 Fatty Acids, EPA and DHA. Omega-3 Fatty Acids help maintain heart and vascular health.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

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.
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
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.
