So I tried to chew up and swallow fish oil pills..

Worst idea I ever had.

I have a hard time swallowing pills, so for the most part I can handle the taste of chewing up pills. But fish oil is the one thing i cannot get down.

Anyways.. does anyone know of a good brand that makes the capsules in a smaller size or differant form?

Thanks in advance

Your one crazy mofo.

Try looking up and relaxing before you swallow the pills.

Alternativly there is some brand of lemon flavoured fish oil that ive seen people here rave on about.

why in the hell would you chew them?

Just buy Carlsons Lemon flavored fish oil instead.. and swig it straight out of the bottle.

I promise it does not taste bad.. and easy to swallow.


I did try this one fish oil replacement that came in little packets like ketchup. It was Orange Sherbert flavored fish oil.. and it actualy tasted good.. and exactly like orange sherbert.. but i think they were pretty expensive.. and i imagine full of crap because of the artificial orange sherbert flavor.

A poster previously mentioned he did this. He takes all 10 and puts them in a glass of water. He then waits some time (i have no clue how long) and he said they get soft, but don't break. But apparently they get soft enough he just drinks the whole thing. Genius for people who can't swallow pills.

I just bought some liquid O3mega orange flavored fish oil, made by Genuine Health, the same company that makes Greens+. It's damn good, and ranks right up there with the Ascenta Lemon fish oil.

my costco brought in this new bottle of Kirkland (costco's brand) omega 3...something ridiculous like 600-700 omega3 per pill (that's unheard of). If I make it to the store today i'll post some details.

When i first saw it I didn't have time to really look at it, but when reading the label compared to the Kirkland Maximum Strength Fish Oil i usually get, something about the ingredient list didn't sit right with me.


this is what i always take
http://www.amazon.com/Kirkland-Signa...0342169&sr=8-3

440 omega3 per pill about 13$ i think after taxes 200 capsules

here's the new one

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...lang=en-US&s=1

684 omega3 per pill.

I think what didn't sit right with me was that they didn't specifiy how much dpa and eha.

As a kid, I couldn't handle swallowing pills, be it tabs or caps. Now I just chuck handfuls down with a little water. It's a mental thing.
