Optimum Enteric Coated Fish Oil is a natural supplement filled with Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Fatty acids are the basis of fats and oils, and, contrary to popular belief, are necessary for overall health. These fatty acids are coined “essential” because your body cannot manufacture them by itself. Fish Oils contain long-chain fatty acids, with equally long names like docosahexenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA are essential fats that cannot be made by your body. So, consuming them through foods like salmon and supplements such as the Optimum Nutrition Fish Oil Softgels is the only way to get DHA and EPA. Better yet, Optimum Nutrition Fish Oil Softgels are enteric coated, which means that you get all of the benefits of fish oils without the fishy aftertaste that you might encounter without this special coating.
The pill is enteric coated which I believe gets rid of the whole fishy taste, so it tastes great for Fish Oil. I never experienced any “fish oil burps” while taking this.
I typically shoot for between 2-3g of EFA a day. On average I took about 9 caps of this product per day: with three in the morning, 3 at lunch and 3 at dinner. This way, the 100-capsule bottle lasted me a bit less than 2 weeks. After I started buying the 200 capsule bottle which lasts a month.
I was having pretty bad knee pain and started taking 9 fish oil pills a day and can say it definitely helped relieve a lot of the pain. I just feel good while taking fish oil. I think these were decent and helped me. I always recommend to people that they should be taking fish oils because they are good for so many different things. These are not a bad fish oil to take. If you really want to give these a try I would recommend them. I do know there are a few cheaper brands out there that I think are a little more effective than these. It’s hard to go wrong on a fish oils.
You can get a 200 Capsule bottle for about 15$ on amazon.com which I think is a decent deal for quality product.
I would defiantly recommend this anybody regardless of your goals, and especially to those who don’t like to eat fish like myself. this is a fairly inexpensive-high quality product, with many benefits that’s produced by a great company.
