Help, son 15 months old, opened whole fish oil 1000mg, wheat germ 100 mg per caps, 2 caps and ingested, mouth smells fish, don't think mercury free?

Help, son 15 months old, opened whole fish oil 1000mg, wheat germ 100 mg per caps, 2 caps and ingested, mouth smells fish, don't think mercury free?

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

I've been taking fish oil for about 6 mos 3 to 4g daily and tappered off now n then. Recently i''ve seen oil in my urine n it smells like fiish oil?

Fish Oil: It certainly could be trace amounts of omega -3 in the urine. It doesn't take much to smell "fishy". The benefits of taking fish oil are less clear than they used to be. I would recommend that you check with your doctor to see if fish oil is right for you. If it is right, I would purchase the highest grade, highly purified brand that is either of Icelandic or Norwegian origin. ...Read more

What is a good alternative supplement for fish oil? Fish oil tablets make me burp a lot with that yucky fishy taste.

What is a good alternative supplement for fish oil? Fish oil tablets make me burp a lot with that yucky fishy taste.

You don't need this: Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol.
Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman". ...Read more
