"Great product, no fish burps or indigestion. great lemon taste. Recommended this to my husband and he now takes every nite with dinner. Also recommended to my son who had stopped taking fish oils because of the indigestion and taste..loves these!"
"This product was highly recommended to me by a doctor as one of the best fish oil supplements on the market. I've been using it for years and it's great! And it has no 'fishy' aftertaste like many fish oils on the market."
"These are high quality fish oils supplements that cost a little more but are well worth it. There is no fishy aftertaste and they smell like lemon. Recommended by my trainer as well as many healthcare professionals."
"You are paying a premium price for their quality/purity assurance. They are one of the few brands that will show you COA (certificate of analysis) and tell you the oxidation level of your specific batch (# found in every bottle). Heavy metals and PCBs aren't the only measure of purity. Their peroxide levels (measures rancidity) is ~1 mEq/kg (lower the better and these numbers are usually well below other tested products).
And they are also one of the few brands that offer "superior" form of fish oil. Majority of fish oil products are sold in ethyl ester form. In Layman's term, achieving ethyl ester form is cheaper and more efficient using molecular distillation (purification process). Nordic Naturals takes a step further and goes through a re-attachment process to convert the form back into a natural triglyceride form. This is not a "true" natural triglyceride but a re-attached or re-esterified triglyceride form. This is what they mean when they advertise "Superior Triglyceride Form" on their bottle.
Now I am not saying ethyl ester form used in most other products is inferior or unsafe. Some experts will say that natural triglyceride form is better absorbed by the body--some will say the difference is negligible. The fact is that almost all research done on the benefits of fish oil used ethyl ester form. So either forms are just fine.
If you want a more natural route and have the money, Nordic Naturals is a good choice. I also recommend that you look at other premium brands such as Minami or Ascenta. Both Minami and Ascenta shows less than 3 mEq/kg measurement in peroxidation levels which is well below average.
If you are on a budget, ethyl ester form is much more affordable. Find something that has a high EPA/DHA concentration (preferably above 50%). EPAX and MEG-3 are both the largest omega-3 suppliers that prides in purity with very low levels of oxidation. EPAX in particular limits peroxide levels to less than 3 mEq/kg. You can check their websites to see which brands carry their fish oil."
"I've been taking this along with CuraMed for about 6 months and it has made a tremendous difference. There is no aftertaste, the scent is pleasant lemon, wish it were a little smaller, but overall I am very happy with this product."
"I take three physicals a year so that I can fly commercially and in the military. My doctors always praise my labwork and I give a lot of the credit to these fish pills. As the other reviewers note there is no aftertaste or any other issues with these pills. It is the only supplement I take and I am a believer."
"This product does not cause me to burp after taking it. I have used many fish oil products searching for the one that will give me the benefits but not cause this unpleasant after affect. This is the one."
