Wellness Wednesday - Another Omega-3 Fish Oil Review

So I keep trying new brands of fish oil, both because I’m asked to and because I’m always looking for the best supplements at the best price. Last month, I was given the opportunity to review Life & Food’s Omega-3 Supreme Fish Oil 1400mg capsules. I planned on writing about the benefit of omega-3s, but then I saw this on Life & Food’s Amazon page and had to share because they summed it up pretty well.

“Studies have shown that diets high in Omega-3 fatty acids may lower a person's health risks. Eating a diet rich in fatty acid containing fish - cold-water swimmers such as pollock, sardines and salmon - can help lower your cholesterol and blood pressure. Some studies show there is a proven link that EPA and DHA reduces inflammation from arthritis conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Other sources of Omega-3 include olive oil, walnuts and flaxseed.” (From Life & Food’s Amazon page)

After taking these for a month, here’s what I have to say:

My Review:
3 stars

The capsules were easy to swallow, and I didn't have to deal with fishy burps or breath, which was a big relief.

However, I wasn't a fan of having to take two capsules a day to get an effective dose instead of one and I wasn't a fan of the fishy smell. The smell of omega oils doesn't usually bother me, but these did. I also noticed that I seemed to experience heartburn more frequently as well while taking these this past month, though I don't know for sure if that was due to these.

All in all, these were good omega oil supplements, but I probably won't take them again due to my reaction to taking them. However, I seem to be one of the few who had issues, so I would still recommend looking at other reviews and trying these if they sound like something you'd like.

*I received this product in exchange for an honest review.*
