Do you take fish oil ?

I take it but it tastes awful. Each time I burp I feel like a Cat! No wonder why mine love me more! Anyone else deal with this! Is the benefits worth the icky taste? Cinnamon did that to me too! So I quit taking it! What are your thoughts or experiences? Your kind favor to reply is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  • I take it 3 x's a day. Mine doesn't take yucky at all, maybe the brand you use isn't good..try Spectrum fish oil...works for me. Here's a link explaining the benefits: http://www.fishoilbenefit.net/

  • I just started, no burps for me. Plus I take some other vitamins and supplements. My mom says she was burping fish smell. Which is funny since she doesn't like fish.

  • I take it and don't have fish burps, either. I have read that if you put it in the freezer, and swallow it frozen, it eliminates the fish burps. Something to try, I guess. I store mine in the freezer, but not for that.

  • if you put them in the freezer and take with a meal your fish burps should be a thing of the past.

  • Well, I had burps last night. I normally take my vitamins before lunch, because I eat beans at lunch and take beano. Last night I tookd the vitamins at dinner and didn't eat much. I was burping and farting all night long. Not a good night for me.... boo hoo hoo!!
