Lately I have stopped taking fish oil.
Why? Well, every time I take it, even ONE capsule, my roommate tells me I smell like fish. Even aftering showering! The same thing happens when I eat salmon. I have also noticed that if I take a capsule of Flameout, I will sometimes get fish burps. It doesn’t matter if the fish oil is Poliquin, Biotest, or Carlson’s.
As a background, my diet is very high (read: exclusively) grass-fed meats. I also use a lot of flax and hempseed oils as well as pastured butter and cream, so my consumption of Omega-3’s is very high. I also used to eat a lot of fish and take a moderate dose of fish oil (6 caps Flameout per day), but now I don’t take any.
I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience. I am thinking my tissues are “saturated” and maintained by my intake from other sources, so that I don’t actually need fish oil.
