What brand of fish oil do you use and where do you find it? How "pure" is it? Does it contain glycerin and other fillers, preservatives? How much does it cost, per bottle or per month? Thanks. Please reply directly to my email below.

what does "closed as 'too localized'" mean? According to the FAQ page, questions should be: • detailed and specific • written clearly and simply • of interest to at least one other person somewhere

Often used for closing very specific health problems. Most often with an admonition to see a doctor first.
