      After several days of research Carlson Labs Fish Oil seems to have a top quality product with a great formula that puts them on top of all other brands. 500mg of Omega 3 is perfect for a somewhat healthy young adult such as my self. It contains only 10IU of Vitamin E which is only a portion of the RDA. This allows you to consume other Vitamin E throughout you day and not have to worry about getting too much. Other products on the market have either too much E, not enough E or no E. Vitamin E helps your body absorb the Omega 3 making it more effective. Regularly test for purity and no contaminants is very important when it comes to supplements and Carlson Labs provides this. This particular package is a great deal because it keeps the product fresher and for a great price. I highly recomment this product to anyone that doesn't take a Vitamin E supplement with 100% or more of the RDA.

      I used to take these all the time, since Dr. Mercola used to recommend them, and fish oil does help with a number of issues, but I kept wondering why my neck was always swollen. I knew that soy caused my neck to get swollen - and finally discovered after calling Carlson's that there is soy in these!!! They should put it on the label! And soy is in some of Carlson's other products, including their Solar D!!! PUT IT ON THE LABEL!!!

        I take this daily for health conditions.
        This is the only one I have found that does not contain corn syrup or soy as I am allergic.
        This product does NOT taste fishy or give me fishy after taste or burps.

        Comments about Carlson Laboratories Super Omega-3 Fish Oil Gems 1000 MG - 130 Softgels:

        I have been taking these for over a year. Never has there been a quality issue and no fish burps. I do freeze them and take them directly from the freezer. One superior part of this pill is that they state the DHA and EHA on the bottle and cheaper fish oils do not. This is one supplement that is worth paying more for.

            I subscribe to the belief that regular intake of fish oil is vital to maintaining my mental edge as I progress through middle age. Since using the Super Omega-3 Softgels I have enjoyed the benefits without the downfalls - mainly the belching I used to experience with other products. The Softgels are easy to take and don't "linger" with me for an hour or two afterward.

                • For Chronic Inflammation

                Comments about Carlson Laboratories Super Omega-3 Fish Oil Gems 1000 MG - 130 Softgels:

                Both my chiropractor and my neurologist suggested I take 3,000 mg of omega-3 fish oil daily to help control my inflammatory disease. I chose Carlson because they have such a great reputation. At first the fish oil gave me heartburn, and I had to work up to 3,000 mg over a period of two weeks. I actually prefer the Super to the Elite formula, which has 250mg more per capsule. After using the Super for three months now, I have to say that my body has less pain when I take only one capsule daily as opposed to three capsules daily. A major study on fish oil was released this week, which says that taking mega doses of this stuff can actually weaken your arteries, so I'm reducing my daily intake to one 1,000 mg capsule per day. Overall, though, I really like this product. No fishy taste and I do think it cuts down on inflammation when taken at the lower dose.

                    This is a great fish oil w/absolutely no fishy aftertaste. I have taken several brands of fish oil, some I just tolerated the fishy indigestion, another I tolerated the high price. I read some promising reviews about Carlson fish oil, tried it, and am totally pleased w/the product AND the reasonable price.

                                      I keep mine in the freezer to minimize fish burps...I am almost paranoid to take them because I did have fish burps once (like an idiot I ate breakfast, took them, then had coffee! duh of course the coffee would melt the capsule quickly creating fish burps) I have only been taking them at night because of my fear of getting them again..it was sooooo gross to burp up fish oil! Also pretty easy to swallow considering they are really big for my taste.

                                          This is my third order, the price is good and the quality of these is great. They are easy to swallow and I dont detect a fishy after taste. These are from fish in unpolluted waters. I would keep repurchasing.

                                              I have tried fish oils over the years to reduce cholesterol. Carlson is the best quality for the money, with cold-water fish considered 100% Norwegian quality oil. This is the first product I ever had without any fishy burps! Each soft gel has EPA, DHA plus other Omega-3's in addition to the fish concentrate. With this order, you get the big 100 gel bottle plus the mini-30 gel bottle. The smaller version is great for traveling and a "reminder" to reorder. This is an unbelievable deal. So many brands out there advertise the same benefits with 3 times the price with less purity and potency. I buy Carlson's other vitamins and it is the "cadillac" of the brands out there. By the way, my cholesterol dropped 50 points in 6 months on this fish oil!

I always take my vitamins with food and haven't had any issue with this product. My husband takes this product on an empty stomach and doesn't have any complaints. Good product!

                                                              This is the first fish oil capsule I've ever tried - after reading about the great benefits of fish oil I went in search of a quality, yet affordable, product. I read many reviews of different brands of fish oil, and found Carlson was highly recommended. I decided to purchase some and I have not been disappointed (and Vitamin Shoppe offers such an affordable price!). Within one week I noticed a HUGE improvement in my complexion - I had a glow and my mild acne started to clear up (even scarring started to disappear)! I also noticed an increased improvement in my mood, focus, and mental clarity. I suffer from severe PMS symptoms, and as soon as I started taking them my PMS symptoms seemed to disappear. It's amazing to me. Even birth control pills couldn't control my complexion and PMS symptoms the same as this product does. I was concerned about the so-called "fish burps" but have only found that to be an issue if I take them without food. And even at that, they are nothing intolerable. Many times I forget to take them with my meal and, with exception of the very first dose I ever took, I never have the fish burps. The pills are about the size of most adult vitamins.

There is no fishy taste or aftertaste, and the quality of the product is very high. This is the product I recommend to anyone wanting to start taking fish oil.

But, Carlson products give you more for the money! No aftertaste nor does it smell fishy. Fish oil is great for a myriad of reasons, but make sure you get the quality you deserve!

My father is a Chiropractor and he learned about it's many benefits at one of his yearly Chiropractic seminars, so he told me about it and I've been taking it ever since. It lubricates all of ones joints and is used to protect one from heart disease and stroke, Scientists and physicians have also discovered many other benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and the research and benefits continue to grow.Omega3 fatty acids are nutrients that are essential for good health. Omega3 fatty acids control blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain.It's also wonderful for your skin, hair and fingernails. I'll never be without it and I personally take 1000MG a day. I bought Carlson's because it has a highest amount of the fish oils then some of the others and 1000MG is needed a day for optimum results. Also non-fish oils do not have EPA-DHA which our bodies need and this does. Carlson's seems to be fresh because I don't get any burped-up effect from it being rancid, so that's another plus.

It contains only 10IU of Vitamin E which is only a portion of the RDA. This allows you to consume other Vitamin E throughout you day and not have to worry about getting too much. Other products on the market have either too much E, not enough E or no E. Vitamin E helps your body absorb the Omega 3 making it more effective. Regularly test for purity and no contaminants is very important when it comes to supplements and Carlson Labs provides this. This particular package is a great deal because it keeps the product fresher and for a great price. I highly recomment this product to anyone that doesn't take a Vitamin E supplement with 100% or more of the RDA.

I agree with Marie A about the amount to take, Butcher's Broom is a personal favorite when the weather is damp. I do take fish oil daily.

Wondering if this will help me with my joint pain? Or if you suffer from anything similar if there is another product you recommend. My doctor said this might help.
                                                                                                      Thanks, Ed

Fish oil helps as does ginger root and lemon with boiling water. Let it cool and drink it hot. The ginger and lemon also help clean out toxins in your body if you drink it first thing every day. Hope you feel better!

To be absolutely sure, you should put the question to the mfr. I have been using this product for several years and have had no negative effects. The presence of mercury never crossed my mind.
