    Question Fish Oil Allergy

    Shop Now
    I eat various types of fish with no reaction, but I sometimes have an allergic reaction to fish oil. Should I just buy a better quality fish oil or is there something else causing the reactions? Thoughts?

    I think you should skip the fish oil entirely

    I suggest you drop the fish oil supplements and increase your oily fish intake. Iodine, in natural cold water fish, protects the EPA/DHA omega 3s from oxidation whereas supplemental fish oil is sensitive to oxidation.

    Drop the supplements and eat the fish. I don't know what you like, but I focus on frozen/fresh wild salmon and canned sardines and smoked oysters.

    another vote to just eat the fish.

    garbage in, garbage out -- skip the supp.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Thanks everyone. I love salmon but can't always afford the fresh stuff. Thoughts on the best canned or frozen salmon brands for a reasonable price?

    canned salmon is a staple for me. i just buy wild-caught from trader joe's.
