Default Big Scam With Fish Oil Supplements

Have you ever seen a label that says that a fish oil supplement has enteric coating? The fact is enteric coating is an expensive process to protect certain vitamins and minerals from stomach acid. However it's not needed for fish oil.

A company might mention that it hides that after fishy smell. Another fact is that if you poke a hole in a fish oil supplement you should smell a faint ocean smell. If it's too fishy or smells funny than the product could be rotten and do you more harm than good.

If the product smalls like a fragrance than that can be bad as well since the company might be trying to hide a rancid smell with a fragrance.

Supplement companies can legally sale a product before even testing to see if it's safe, which is scary.

Don't get cheated or taken advantage of. Read a free guide that goes over what to look for in a supplement, the main nutrients and vitamins to take as well as what to avoid.

let me know what you think as well.

hmmm....do you know anything about the chemical process which is supposed to take place when fish oil is fermented?

Even if fermenting were to stop any further degradation (which I assume is the reason for the fermentation) you would have to be sure that the oil was not already rancid before the fermentation started.


To lay my cards on the table, I suspect the market for "fermented fish oils" is yet another con laid on top of the con which is already the fish oil industry.

No doubt fermented fish oil costs more than normal fish oil.


However, if some suitably qualified person can refute this, I would be open to argument.

I second fermented fish oil, I can't offer any scientific facts but it smells really nice and doesn't repeat on me like the rancid stuff they peddle in the shops. Check out Green Pastures web site they have much more info, they also do skate liver oil.

A big problem with canned salmon is BPH. Basically they use plastic to coat the inside of a can. My dad used to make cans.

This plastic isn't good and can cause all kinds of problems.

-I'm not a big fan of farmed fish because they pump them full of chemicals and they barely swim and it's in their own poop. Doesn't sound very healthy to me.

I had been taking Iceland Health fish oil gel caps but they did tend to start to smell fishy before I could finish the supply. Then I switched to a naturopathic MD and she switched me to Super EFA by Seroyal. The fish oil comes in it's near original form but with orange oil added which makes the daily teaspoon go down very easily...actually rather tasty.
