Fishy vs Fresh

Fishy Vs Fresh

 

Q: I’d like to start taking a fish oil supplement, but am worried about the fishy aftertaste. Are there certain types or brands that are “fresher” than others?

A: When you’re buying fish at the market, you want to choose fish that smell like they were freshly caught and not fish that has been sitting out for a while. The same principle applies to fish supplements. Whether the oil from the fish has been encapsulated into a softgel or if it is in liquid form, the oil should smell and taste fresh. NUTRASEA┬« is a trusted brand whose fish oil is in the naturally-occurring triglyceride form and kept fresh with vitamin E, vitamin C, and/or Green Tea Extract. Encapsulated fish oils have a longer shelf-life because the softgel protects the oil inside from oxidation (i.e., going rancid). If you opt for a liquid, make sure to store it in the fridge after opening and use within about 3 months for optimal freshness.
