    I couldn't find anything using the search engine (but it's not the best search engine)
    But I was wondering what opinions are about Fish Oil? I hear it is really good to take.

    better results from google.
    Anyway, I take it and haven't noticed anything but fish breath, this may be because Im young and healthy. I take an "ordourless" variety and it still gives me fish breath.

    u might be taking a bad brand or oil that have gone rancid.. (rancid oils are nothing but free-radicals=BAD!)

    omega-3 chains are easily broken by heat, sunlight, and oxygen.. so i keep mine refrigerated..

    another alternative is flaxseed oil... which also becomes 'fishy' when it has gone rancid :wink:

    Ive tried a few brands, never rancid, I also keep mine refrigerated. Have you ever tried cod-liver oil, I haven't but I am interested.

    cod liver oil is just like regular fish oil except it has vitamin D with it as well... i personally believe we don't need extra vitamin D as u get ur daily dose of it with just 15min. of direct sunlight... so i wouldn't recommend cod liver oil unless u were dark-skinned and don't get out much.. :wink:
