In brief: Marketing issue

Lovaza is a pharmaceutical grade omega-3 fatty acid compound, meaning precisely manufactured under stringent regulation.
Fish oil products of all types vary in strength (mg), composition (epa/dha), source, and cost. Although touted for many hypothetical health benefits with variable objective evidence of benefit, their primary approved role is adjunctive control of elevated triglycerides. Only.

In brief: EPA Best Evidence

Both epa ; dha, from phytoplankton, at very high (i.
e. Purified rx) doses, tend to ? the triglyceride concentrations in blood. Epa (without dha ; all the other non-beneficial fats in common fish oil) has a track record of also ?ing LDL particle number, even at lower doses ; many long-term trials have shown 12-15% ? deaths thus i commonly recommend purified epa, vascepa, but only 1 gm (capsule)/day.
