I’m a big fan of fish oil. I’ve been using for over a year now, and love it.
I had been taking Carlson’s brand fish oil in liquid form from the beginning. Recently, I ran out of it, and decided I might try fish oil caps instead.
I’m taking the same amount as before (about 3-4 combined grams of EPA+DHA a day).
My concern is that the caps are not as effective as the liquid form. The caps I bought are fairly high quality (about 50% EPA+DHA).
What made me think that they might not be as effective or easily absorbed is that my shoulders ache and feel a bit looser. I’ve had shoulder surgery on both of shoulders, and I had read that fish oil is good for inflammation (among a host of other things).
Well, the research rang true for me; fish oil definitely took away the aching and got me off of Advil and/or Mobic (a gnarly anti-inflam. drug).
Any insight? Does the body more quickly, effectively (other?) process or absorb liquid fish oil versus caps? Is Flameout as good as a liquid form? Any one else with similar experiences?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
