    *Short Answer (per softgell)*
    DHA: 100 mg
    EPA: 200 mg

    *Long Answer*
    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

    *How I found out*
    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.

    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.

    Not a day goes by that I don’t use these gelcaps, ever since my stroke 6 years ago. Not only that, but now I also purchase them for my mother. who just turned 80 in July. Her doctor said her cholesterol results lowered over 40 points in just 2 months after starting to use this product. My results changed dramatically from high triglycerides + high blood pressure to an average range within normal limits. Both doctors said to keep this regimen since it is definitely helping because diets alone and medications weren’t enough to give these kind of results.

    I was impressed with the order because of two features…professional packing and extra gelcaps (increased from 300 to 400) compared to my last purchase from another seller.

    I researched this product a lot and strength quality was also improved in this order…my last order came in a manila folder without any kind of cushioning…this one came in a box with airpad protection. I will definitely re-order from this seller next time

    Fish Oil = Great Health, Kirkland = Great Value, March 31, 2008

    I have only been taking the pills for about a month now, so I can’t necessarily say how well they work. I can say that I was really happy to see how big this bottle was when it arrived. Well worth the price!

    Update November 2008:
    I have now been taking these pills for 8 months and in a recent check-up the doctor told me my cholesterol was at amazing levels.

    My 2008 cholesterol levels:
    Total Cholesterol = 175 mg/dl (recommended below 200 mg/dl)
    HDL Cholesterol = 95 mg/dl (recommended above 50 mg/dl)
    LDL Cholesterol = N/A (below 100 mg/dl)

    The doctor specifically told me that it was amazing for a 30 year old male to have an HDL of 95 and an LDL that was so low it did not register.

    My 2007 cholesterol levels:
    Total Cholesterol = 198 mg/dl (recommended below 200 mg/dl)
    HDL Cholesterol = 61 mg/dl (recommended above 50 mg/dl)
    LDL Cholesterol = 127 (below 100 mg/dl)

    Aside from taking these pills my diet has remained the same. This suggests that these pills have done wonders for my cholesterol levels

    While less scientific, I have also witnessed the following benefits
    – Better Skin (less breakouts/more even color)
    – Less joint pain (I have had bad knees from years of Running)
    – Stronger hair
    – More energy (I used to always want a nap at 3pm)

    This change in my body was gradual and there is great potential that it was a result of other things in my life. I won’t claim these pills are a miracle substance, however, the cholesterol improvement alone should be enough proof that these pills are worth adding to your diet
