Fish Burps…Need We Say More?

We don’t know a single person who loves, or even enjoys, the taste or the smell of fish burps! We don’t even like them and can’t imagine why anyone would! Here’s a few quotes from some fish oil consumers that feel the same way: 

“It tastes fishy, haha, so I try to eat something sweet to take out that fishiness breath!” – Lauren Blancaflor

“So after taking my fish oil, I leaned over to give my wife a kiss and that’s when we knew we both wanted sushi.” – Gino Franco

“I’ve never had an embarrassing moments but it definitely was disgusting and not pleasant when it happened.” – Brandon Hetzler

“So recently, I was going on a date and was running late. Noticed I had run out of my fish oil gummies so I had to resort back to my dreaded liquid form. I didn’t even waste time to measure it out in a spoon. I just took a swig and bolted out the door. I finally arrived for my date and went in for a kiss and the awful smell - horrible smell - came rushing up right as our lips touched!” – Terrence Buchanan

“I started burping way more than I wanted to during my lifts at the gym. One of my belches was so bad that the people that were around my workout station started saying how it smelt like someone farted…after that, I changed my oils up and I take them before bed just in case, haha!” – Nico Silva

Fishing For The Facts: Omega-3 Myths Busted From Dr. Bibus

Omega-3s have been shown in many studies to help support heart, brain, eye and joint health, but there are some common misconceptions out there about omega-3s. We tapped our resident expert and nationally-renowned omega-3 expert, Dr. Doug Bibus to help clear up some of the omega-3 myths we often hear.

Myth: Omega-3’s will keep your blood thin.

Fact: Long chain omega-3 fatty acids naturally compete with another omega-6 fatty acid called arachidonic acid, that is used by cells (when converted to certain compounds) to clot blood. Increasing the level of omega-3 in the diet is a good way to balance omega-6 fatty acid effects. I recommend consulting with your health care provider if you take blood thinner medication and want to start taking an omega-3 supplement.

Myth: Multiple servings of omega-3 must be taken in order to provide all of the daily omega-3’s that one needs. 

Fact: There is no daily recommended intake for long chain omega-3 in our diet by the FDA. In the U.S., expert panels recommend 650mg of EPA, DPA and DHA (all omega-3) per day.  One pack of Coromega has 650mg of omega-3.
