    Fish oil..


    Question....I bought some "cheaper" fish oil gelcaps a couple days ago, and within .5 hours of taking them for the last couple days I'm burping up the nastiest frekin fish A-hole taste!!!
    Anyone with the same issue? How to correct?

    I'm usually taking with food of some sort, but so far nothing is masking this gross taste....
    Should I just take up farting...

    Some caps have what I think is called an enteric coating. Supposedly that helps with the burps. Freezing them can also help. Taking them consistently is usually the key, burps usually clear up in a couple of weeks.

    Good idea on freezing them....I'll give that a shot.
    I've been taking 6-8 caps a day for about a month now, I guess I'll give it another 4 weeks and see if it helps.
    Thanks again.

    CDB is right on with the enteric coating suggestion. I was experiencing the same nasty fish burps until I switched to Fisol (it's enteric coated). It makes all the difference in the world and you don't get even the slighest hint of a fishy taste. You can get it at the Vitamin Shoppe among other places.

    I just bought a bunch, so I'll get through these and buy some
    enteric coated ones.
    I'm taking about 6000mg a day...
