Fish Oil & Flax Seed

Recommended Posts

After reading the thread about seeing a nuitritionist for reflux and seeing how many people use fish oil and/or flax seed, I thought I'd share what my daughter, the pharmacist said:

 

Fish oil caps - keeping them in the freezer will stop you from burping the horrible fishy taste. They don't dissove before they get where they are supposed to be. Shake the bottle often as you are freezing them to keep them from sticking.

 

Flax seed - has more types of the Omegas than fish oil and is often better tolerated.

JJ,

 

I take fish oil caplets and cod liver oil daily. Mainly because my rhumetologist told me to eat plenty of fish, but I never seem to eat enough of it, so I take it in suppliment form. Oddly the fish oil doesn't give me the fishy burps but the cod liver oil ones do. And they are much smaller than the fish oil.

Huh, I wonder why the cod liver oil ones are worse... I'll have to ask my kid if she knows.

 

We give a fish oil capsule to our dogs every other day. One of them mouths it until she can maneuver it between her teeth and pops it. The oldest one is eleventy-seven (11 dog years x 7 human years) and has no health problems at all. She bounces around like a pup. Fish oil must be really good stuff! :lol:

I don't know either, weird isn't it? But yeah, the fish oil in my opinion is one of the best suppliments you can take. For just about everything.
