    Fishy um...poo

    Primal Fuel
    Have been hesitant to post this and, in an effort to spare everyone, searched both 'fishy' and 'poo' with no luck.

    So...lately I've noticed that my poo smells somewhat like fish oil. I don't take what I believe is an unusual amount...3-4 grams of Carlson's liquid fish oil OR four capsules of NOW DHA-500 (3 grams O3, 4 grams total).

    There was a time where I was not very consistent with my fish oil and didn't notice this. More recently though I've been sticking to it and noticed this phenomenon. FWIW, I have been using these particular products for years and this is only a recent thing.

    I take a digestive enzyme 3x/day and have what appears to be relatively good digestion, so don't think I'm having problems digesting the fish oil dose.

    Anyone else experience this? Any clues to what might cause it?

    Might be an indication you're taking too much?
    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    What he said. That's equivalent to the amount of o-3 in 4 cans of kippered herring... which is a boatload.

    Yeah, that's my first inclination too. The dosage is that recommended by both a Naturopath and Functional Medicine MD. The latter of which I have an upcoming appointment with and it's on my list of things to ask. Just curious since it has not happened until just recently.

    try eating actual fish a few times per week.
    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.
