Default Fish oil

Does anyone take fish oil? My doctor suggested it for me and so I picked some up probably about 6 months ago. I went to the health food store and got Carlson fish oil. It said they were lemon flavored. It's been fine... except for the burping. I get fish burps after taking them. It wasn't THAT bad until recently and now I can't stand it. Does anyone have a brand or method of taking fish oil that doesn't give you the awful burps.

The lady at the store swore by the liquid fish oil that was flavored. But I'm way too scared to try it.

Carlson is a quality fish oil. Some people just have a problem with burps. Some get past it with the actual oil and not caplsules or vice versa.

Nordic naturals are also a quality product. There are a couple others but usually cost a lot more and aren't any better. There are however a lot of inferior fish oils out there.

I know the burps suck, i get them onlu occasionally but i always tell myself its better than a heart attack

My friends SWEAR by fish oil for everything from dry skin to fatigue to inability to focus to building muscle.

I tried it for a few weeks, but broke out horribly. I'm starting to think maybe it was the brand I used, though.

I have heard that cutting a hole in them helps, not sure though!

Look for capsules that are labeled "enteric coated". They have a coating on them that will not allow them to dissolve until after they make it through your stomach, and that is supposed to eliminate the burps.

I broke out bad when I took them too.

I can't take any fish oil as they all contain soy. I use walnut oil instead. Same benefits without any fishy problems, no mercury, and it is wonderful for skin.

My chiropractor is having me take up to 10,000mg; I get the burps when I take that many but don't have an issue otherwise.

The flavored stuff isn't bad, doesn't take like fish-flavored stuff, just what the label says.
