I have found the following sources and I'm curious if anyone has any reviews. I will probably get drops and capsules. I have kids and they don't swallow pills yet.

Vegangoods.com has the Nutru drops for $25.50. I would to purchase from them because that is a great price. http://72.32.108.99/store/product.ph...8&cat=0&page=1

Is there some kind of certification cornfirming that the capsules contain what they say they do? It's a lot of money to spend when it could be like vegetable oil in there and we wouldn't know.

I don't know if any supplements i've ever taken were "Certified" to be what they claimed to be. I've always assumed my multivitamins were multivitamins, my flaxseed oil was flaxseed oil...

Dr. Fuhrman gets the DHA used in his DHA Purity from Martek Biosciences, as discussed here in the blog at diseaseproof.com:

Martek seems like a legit operation, and a major supplier, so if they are selling snake oil, then they would be fooling a whole lot of people.

I'm sure that someone could take a capsule and have it tested, though I don't think it is necessary. Nutru has a great reputation for quality products and they are very nice people!

Here's a little detail about the product:

It is a highly concentrated, extra strength Omega-3 DHA with a special nutraceutical composition that has twice the active ingredient of Omega-3 DHA and is currently under evaluation as a leading nutraceutical for enhanced cognitive and cardiovascular function.

NuTru's O-Mega-Zen3® product has been evaluated by the Environmental Defense Organization Oceans Program as a Best Choice product based on testing carried out to certify that the product does not contain mercury, PCBs, dioxins, or other similar environmental contaminants.

So, it has been tested by at least one organization, but probably more.

The liquid is great for people who can't swallow pills. The pills and liquid are both available from my website:

Liquid: https://www.vegangoods.com/store/pro...8&cat=0&page=1

Capsules: https://www.vegangoods.com/store/pro...7&cat=0&page=1

Deva Nutrition also makes a Vegan DHA
