    I don't think there is a "Best" brand. But there are somethings you will want to pay close attention to when purchasing EPO.
    The first, is overall milligrams. For instance, the EPO I used to take, is a local distributed brand, called Central Market by HEB. It has per cap. 1300mg. But you also want to look at the Information chart, which lists the nutritional info. Look at the Fatty Acid Composition. It read Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA), Linolenic Acid, and Other Acid.
    You want the GLA and Linolenic Acid to have a good ratio to total milligrams.
    For instance, mine is 1300mg total,
    GLA is 130 mg
    Linolenic Acid is 960mg
    Other Acid is 93mg.
    These are all at a good ratio. For GLA you want to shoot for around 10%, I wouldn't go lower than 7% because GLA is the good stuff in EPO. I've seen the ratio go as high as 15% but those pills are EXPENSIVE, even more so than normal.
    I hope this helps you out!
