Noted. Thanks Nancy, I have heard that it is very beneficial, although it is recommended to get krill oil as it has the same benefits minus the mercury and other toxins accumulated as sea life ages, and/or flax-seed as well has shown these benefits.

Too bad that consuming the levels of fish oils recommended is TOTALLY UNSUSTAINABLE! Omega 3's can be found in plants too. The world's fisheries are collapsing and we need to find alternatives, just like in nearly every other facet of our lives.

Great... so slaughter fish to enhance the overpopulated human species? Other (friendlier) sources of Omega 3's: soybeans/soymilk/tofu, walnuts, flax and hemp.

I agree Andrea and Rebecca, if there are alternatives why not use them and not take away the life of something! I take flaxseed, which was what I was trying to point out in a round about way...thanks for pointing it out in a more direct way, fish are not as good for people as thought due to all the chemicals we have contaminated the Earth with anyway!

My big problem now is getting my Vitamin D levels up to acceptable levels. I also use flax all the time as I hate the burping up of the fish. Even the flavored ones do it to me. You can put liquid or ground flax in almost anything.

Cod Liver oil tapsules are great and Beth if you take with your meal when you are almost finished take it then. What you burp will be what you ate first and not the almost last thing you ate.

Taking fish oil capsules daily has helped lower my cholesterol considerably.
