Cheap isn't always better

I really like Now Foods as a company and having tried other products by them, I was sure their Omega 3's would perfectly suit my needs. But upon my first dose, I knew I had made a mistake. I must have had about 7 fishy burps after taking them and they also made my stomach a little rumbly (which is usually pretty iron-clad). I believe that Omega 3 is one supplement where you really do have to pay a little extra for quality. I immediately switched back to my mainstay, Carlson's, which gives me no burps or strange feelings in my stomach.

Disappointing. Very disappointed with the fishy after taste, producing lots of burbs. I have been taking Omega 3, 6, 9 for years. Have used different brands with no fishy after taste. This is the first time ever experiencing the God awful fishy tasting burbs. YUCK!
Beware - Horse Pills!

I've only been taking these for a week or so, therefore I can't comment on their efficacy. However, I do notice a slightly fishy taste in my mouth after taking. The real problem is that the pills are enormous. They look like horse pills! Even though they're smooth softgels I struggle to get them down and frequently fail. These are now useless to me.

the pill size is too big -hard to swallow and despite of all the good ratings here I got bad tasting reflux after taking the product. now it's lying in the cubboard, so total waste of money. would not recommend.
Buy a more expensive brand

My husband and I take fish oil regularly, and this brad was terrible. It gave us both fish burps every time we took it. Now we are giving it to our dogs instead.

Fish burps and Fish smell from the skin:-(
Posted by JohVig on Feb 28, 2014
I bought this Omega-3 because of its many good reviews, but had to stop taking it when a very unpleasant sardine smell followed me everywhere... Having fish burps through the day did not help either. I now take Jarrow Formulas, Max DHA and is very happy with that - a much better product!

The "Now Foods" omega-3 softgels caused an immediate bad reaction. Blotting and terrible upset stomach. I'm asking for a refund.
Highly negative--zero stars

I just began taking the Omega-3 and I am having an awful time. The taste of the fish oils keeps coming up. I understood the product not to cause distasteful reflux. It doesn't.
Problem with Now Foods Omega-3
Posted by Reviewer1222411 on Mar 05, 2011
I have a problem with this fish oil; it gives me indigestion! I would like to have a refund or replacement.> I have successfully taken another fish oil from iHerb, "Dr. Michael Murray recommended" Natural Factors.
