Good, except for new bottles/spouts
Posted by Reviewer1628931 on Mar 18, 2008
I really like this brand of fish oil; it has little to no fishy taste. The only downsides are that the oil gets cloudy once you get to the bottom of the bottle and the new tops/spouts they put on the bottle are a problem. I noticed the old bottles would have little spouts that worked great and kept the oil nice and fresh. With my most recent order, I saw they have new tops: screw-off type caps. Except... they don't seem to go back on just right, so I'm worried now about the fish oil spoiling. I even noticed one time that after tightening the cap really well, that the cap sort of just snapped open again, so I'm sure plenty of air is getting in there -- this isn't good.
New cap is a problem

Carlson previously had a cap that required ingenuity to open. They have redesigned it, but now the inner pouring lip comes off with the cap. I was able to wrestle them apart, but the lip was impossible to put back into the bottle. When I pour it dribbles down the side of the bottle, wasting this expensive oil and making a mess. Unless this is resolved I'll buy at a store where I can see which cap they have, or switch to another brand, although Carlson is my favorite due to quality, purity and price.

I brought this at the recommendation of a friend who has ADD and who's daughter has eczema. My own 10-yr old daughter also has eczema and deals with poor memory and lack of attention. I give her 3 tsp 2x daily. Her memory and school work has improved. Not perfect, but I've seen definite improvement. I put the oil on her skin, too. Haven't seen a lot of difference yet, but I'm going to stick with it. Natural products usually take more time.

The flavor was very good; however, I had an upset stomach all day every day that I took it. If there are any suggestions to overcome this problem, I would appreciate knowing about them because it seems to be a very good product.

I prefer the cod liver oil and should have bought that

I bought this without noticing that they do not include vit. A and D3, so I won't repurchase. The oil itself tastes just fine however :)

It is okay, but the introduction does not say that it is molecularly distilled. Wild caught fish in deep water does not guarantee purity though as some fish such as anchovy actually also stay in river for some certain period of time during its life. And also Nordic natural claims that its triglyceride form would triple the effect than that of Calson. Will try Nordic naturals next time.

Surprisingly, this does actually taste good, although the flavour is best for the first few times the bottle is open, even though I kept it in a dark cupboard.
