too much information

vitamin & supplement shopping — information overload!

I just put in my periodic re-order of fish oil capsules from Puritan's Pride. As usual, they have way too much info about the different products they sell to be easily evaluated.

So, ResearchGirl made a spreadsheet. It compares the different fish oils by quantity of Omega-3s per capsule, number of capsules that would be required to make up 4g of Omega-3s (therapeutic dosage for me seems to be 3.5 to 4g of Omega-3s a day), and resulting price per day. I update it at irregular intervals, usually just before I re-order.

Anyone who takes fish oil (or wants to start) who would like to take advantage of my geeky compulsiveness is welcome to take a look.
