Shopping For Vegan EPA & DHA Supplements In America

Postby beforewisdom » Thu Jul 19, 2012 1:36 pm

In this thread a representative of Nuique, a British company that sells vegan EPA & DHA supplements pointed out that I made a mistake in calculating price per dose for their product. I couldn't fix my mistake there as the thread was locked after the Nuique representative had the last post.

So, I am correcting it here. The correction doesn't change the rankings of Nuique's supplement if you are shopping by price or dosage.....as a shopper from America.

Here goes my breakdown, as a shopper from the United States.

Nuique offers a "buy 2 get 1 free" deal. Since they have done so ever since I bought from them my comparisons are based on what you pay and you get for 3 bottles. Results of my shopping trip are listed in ascending order by price. foodsforlife previously mentioned differences in quality to account for price differences. foodsforlife may care to reiterate those quality differences here and let people decide for themselves if those differences are worth the higher price
