    I recently started taking fish oil capsules to get some omega 3 in my diet. i have heard that this will let me put on weight a little easier, and help with my less-than-perfect skin.

    Big downside is that my breath is HORRIBLE, smells like fish all day now. Offensively so. I really want the benefits of this supplement, but I cant deal with the halitosis. Does anyone know of any other sources that wont cause this? and/or if im over judging what it doesfor me?


    thanks :hs:

    i take 4 fish oil pills right before i go to bed, not any other time, and I haven't had any complaints of bad breath. If i do i will switch to flax oil.

    Your body converts it but sometimes not efficiently (everybody converts it at a different rate).
