odorless fish oil
Has anyone found a good fish oil supplement that is odorless? I've tried Nordic Naturals and looked at some of the Carleson stuff and I've used NSI ultras but they all have the fish odor. I'm trying to take 1g per lb/body weight.
My wife has put the stop to any more fish oil supplementation if they stink. I don't mind it, but apparently she can smell me coming down the hallway...
The one I've found locally is "nature's bounty odorless fish oil". It's a drug store brand and I am sure it's not as good as the previously mentioned higher end stuff, but it's all I am going to be able to take and I figure it's better than nothing.

So, any help will be appreciated.

Surely this is a typo.

WHOA!!! yes it is.... I haven't the foggiest idea what I was thinking when I typed that. I'd be eating a full salmon each day.:rolleyes:

I'm taking 10 1200mg pills a day. I take two each time I eat.

Any suggestions on what pills to try?

You've already tried my two default options (Nordic Naturals, Carlson).

There is Jarrows Orderless.

Thanks guys. Chris, the Nordic and Carlson are odorless for you? I'll take a look at those other two.

I really appreciate the help here.

That Jarrows stuff look great.

Well I took a look at both the Jarrows and the Flameout. They both sound like really good alternatives for me. The both are reported to be "burpless and odorless" which is my main goal here. They also look to be of much higher concentration than what I'm doing now.

Of course looking at the new ratios on each pill and trying to figure out the daily dosage for me I get a bit wrapped up again. It's amazing how some concepts just throw me for a loop. The 10 caps a day that I am doing now fit in my calcs at the high end, but I'll have to re-figure for the new pills.

Now I just have to decide which one to of the above to try. HOnestly my first impulse is to go with the Jarrows simply because the "flameout" has a "commercial-type" name to me. Not a good reason I know...

Does anyone have direct experience with either flameout or the Jarrows?

Algae DHA or plankton-sourced DHA should both be odorless.

Gary Ohm 08-08-2010 06:11 PM

Ah. Well that makes PERFECT sense... Does the body care where the DHA comes from? Meaning is there any reason that fish oil is better?

I use Jarrows and like it. You'll notice a slight strawberry taste to them (look at the ingredients), so if that could bother you it is something to be aware of with Jarrows.
