I was recently asked by a Russian colleague what I thought about red caviar (from salmon) and black caviar (from sturgeon), and whether it is a good source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. My colleague grew up in an environment where her family and friends believed that caviar had a lot of health benefits (except for the salt, of course) and where red caviar was a staple during celebrations.

I did a little research on the USDA Nutrient database as to the content of EPA and DHA in caviar. A 50 gram serving contains about 3.2 grams of EPA and DHA. With caviar running anywhere from $50 to $1,000 or more per 50 gram tin, that makes 3.2 grams of EPA and DHA cost between $50 to  $1,000. Yikes!

In comparison, one serving of OmegaRx 2 has 3 grams of EPA and DHA and one teaspoon of liquid OmegaRx 2 has 3.3 grams of EPA and DHA. Not only are you paying an arm and leg for caviar compared to OmegaRx 2 for the same level of EPA and DHA, one can only guess what else (besides the salt) is in the caviar.

With the 3.2 grams of EPA and DHA in OmegaRx 2 costing about $1.50 compared to $50 to $1,000 for 50 grams of caviar, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see which is the better deal. You would need 50 grams of caviar to get the same level of EPA and DHA as one serving of  Dr. Sears Zone OmegaRx 2 fish oil!

There is an old saying that “a fool and their money are soon parted.” Personally, I would recommend getting your EPA and DHA from OmegaRx and save the money from the caviar to buy expensive jewelry. It lasts longer.New call-to-action
