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

Are fishoils, flaxseed oils, krill oil, cod fish oils beneficial to our health?

Are fishoils, flaxseed oils, krill oil, cod fish oils beneficial to our health?

Not certain: Since it is so difficult to demonstrate any clear benefit, the answer is that intelligent meal planning is important, but these supplements are probably a waste of money for most people. Glucosamine is clearly a waste of money, yielding the same result as the placebo in the largest and best trials. ...Read more

Would flax seed oil or fish oil be a better blood thinner?

Comparable effects: Both fish oil and flax oil contain omega 3 fatty acids which are known to significantly thin the blood. With both the effects are dose-related; higher amounts thin the blood more. I do not know of any studies comparing their effects on thinning blood but would expect they would be fairly comparable. See www. Parade. Com/health/askdrrosenfeld/nutrition/fish-oil.

Better to drink flaxseed oil or fish oil for omega3? Is the omega3 that comes from fish the same quality as from vegetables? Which is digested better?

Better to drink flaxseed oil or fish oil for omega3? Is the omega3 that comes from fish the same quality as from vegetables? Which is digested better?

Eat fish for Omega 3: Our bodies don't convert omega 3's from flaxseed into the epa & dha readily available in fish (oil). There are some attempts to make epa & dha from seaweed & algae but otherwise, read label for epa & dha content. You won't see much from flaxseed products nor will you get much conversion either.
