    Seriously what is the difference between Vacepa and Plusepa?

    I talked to a GNC store rep. yesterday-9/1/2012.She had 6 bottles in "Dicontinued aisle". They had dropped the price from 29$ to 13$ per bottle of 36 pills. One pill has 500mg.of EPA.
    She said-we won't be carrying it.
    Then I went to another store at the Mall--They did not carry it either.
    There is some reason for discontinuing it.--I did not buy it--because of recent visit to Walmart store to buy Tylenol. Pharm.told me that it was RECALLED.
    Guess what-we were taking it without knowing that we should stop and return it.Any how hope 46 pills--500mg Gels won't do much harm.

      You raised a very important pt. There has been much concern over the years with PCB contamination in a lot of OTC fish oil .
      GNC. Seems to have it's own problems with recalls ...

      I take Minami Nutrition PLUSEPA ....I get it thru Amazon ....costs about 60 c per 500mg capsule so I spend about $3.60 a day on it ( 3gms ) and it gets my TG's from over 200 down to 102.

      I'll look for recalls of Minami Nutrition's EPA .......good argument for going with the Rx version ( Vascepa )
      Thanks for the info .

      Sentiment: Buy
