      My husband flat out refused to try this stuff - I can't blame him. Fish Oil on a teaspoon sounds repulsive. However, he finally broke down and tried it when he got his blood results back and he had high cholesterol. He was amazed! This stuff tastes great and at no point has a fishy taste at all. I even give it to my baby - I call it a "lemon drop" and she actually comes running when I ask her if she wants a lemon drop. Hahahaha. What a wonderful world when your toddler thinks fish oil is candy! I am so happy my whole family likes this stuff as much as they do. It is much more economical than the softgels. I have no idea how Carlson's does it, but they do a bang up job of it. I am loyal forever....whatever you do Carlson, don't change the formula!

      What happened? I was buying from The Vitamin Shoppe for years this oil and last time I bought it (in February 2011) it was $21.64 per bottle. Now it jumped up by more than $12. I don't think that I will order now from here when there are lower prices on the Internet. Too bad because I liked the Vitamin Shoppe.

        I use this product for myself and my kids...I use it for healing, menopause, and to keep the kids healthy. The taste is amazing - no fishy after taste whatsoever - the kids eat it in applesauce. Bonus - the Vitamin Shoppe offers it at a most competitive price with quick shipping...many other internet companies either do not have it available or it takes weeks to ship!

            Fish oil is good for you. This particular one is the best I have tried so far. I take one (1) teaspoon daily. The lemon flavoring makes it palatable.

              Comments about Carlson Laboratories The Very Finest Fish Oil 1600 MG - 16.9 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

              My son is on the autism spectrum and is currently taking A TON of prescribed vitamin supplements so you can imagine the burden of adding yet another supplement. He takes over 8 capsules/tablets of medication twice a day. However, this was recommended by his geneticist, and fortunately, it tastes so good, my son has no trouble at all taking it. It even tastes so good that I'm not opposed to taking it myself, and I find even diet drinks bad tasting!

              I can't speak to its effectiveness though. i have not seen any change in my son since adding this, but I don't think it'll harm.

                Used as directed daily. Palatable and refreshing fish oil I've ever tasted. I use it in smoothies, juice drinks or directly from the bottle. Prefer this to taking capsules. It's in a natural form without other additives.

                        I have been using this oil for years. I have found it to be one of the best. No after taste or burps. The added hint of lemon makes the oil without the fishy taste. I put in my green smoothies and drink 1-2 teasppons and sometimes a tlbsp a day. My memory is better when I take it and I can remember phne numbersof business I don't call often and even whole credit card numbers and check book numbers. I have back my memory of my youth!!!

                              I bought the 16 oz. size for my dog as he has dry skin issues. I dropped the bottle, breaking it and losing most of the contents. I will order a smaller size if there is one available.

                                The Carlson Fish Oil is a great source of Omega 3's. This contains much more DHA/EPA than you will find in many supplements. You would have to take several capsules each day to equal one tablespoon.
                                Also, the lemon flavor is easy to swallow and leaves no fishy aftertaste. Recommend!

                                  Put into shake every morning and share with my wife. Beats the capsules and takes nothing away from the fruits used in the shake.

                                      I like the flexibility of being able to vary the amount you use depending on your need. I put my dose of 2 tsp in my protein shake each morning to get the Omega Fatty Acids I need. It improves the taste of the shake and is a great reliable product and source. Price is better here than in the store and I like the convenience of having it shipped to my house. Must refrigerate for freshness and safety.

                                        My doctor suggested taking this instead of a pill that cost me $150 a month - my number were better than before.

                                            This fish oil liquid was recommended to me by a nutritionist. I take it primarily for eye health though it has many other benefits too. I use the lemon flavored and it is very unoffensive. I take it every day and would not take anything else.

                                              One teaspoon of this liquid fish oil is everything I need in a fish oil. It's liquid, it's cold, taste good right out of the spoon or drizzled over a salad - I'll never go back to fish oil capsules. I began using several years ago and have never looked back.

                                                I have used this product for several years on advice of my doctor. I take the lemon flavored with oj. The taste is not overwhelming and I find it better tasting then the orange flavor. I can't "prove" that this has a medicinal element, but common sense tells me that this high grade of fish oil is good for my overall health. I really don't like eating most fish and this is the perfect solution. It's best if kept in frig.

                                                    Great Product! The only fish oil with enough cancer fighting goodness... It also works wonders on skin and hair appearance. I highly recommend. Doesn;t taste like fish oil either - has a nice light lemon flavor.

                                                    Doctor recommended fish oil to cut my triclyserides and lower colesteral. Most fish oil has an after taste. This tastes like lemon! It has also done it's job. The Doctor was very pleased at my last visit. I even lost 39 lbs.!

                                                      I would give this product 5 stars but I haven't been taking "my spoonful of medicine" for even a month yet, so I can't comment.

                                                      I can say it is easy to take compared to many other fish oils. The lemon in the oil is helpful and because it is liquid, is should be absorbed better.

                                                      I give the Vitamin Shoppe Thumbs Up!

                                                      The service was great. Shipping was prompt. The price was better than my last trip to a nutrientist for the same product.

                                                        Had my physical for the first time in 5 years and my triglycerides and BP were really high. I took this fish oil for three months and my BP went from 162/103 to 151/94, not where I need to be but much better. Highly recommend

                                                            I am 50+ with a slowing metabolism. My doctor recommended this product. At first I could hardly stand to take it, and searched for ways to disguise it in food. But it began to work so noticeably well that I now happily swig it right out of the bottle on a daily basis. It invigorates and energizes me for hours.

It doesnt have a fishy taste, nor does it "repeat" on you after consuming (like fish oil gel caps do). Its an excellent product and worth every penny that it costs.

                                                                  Well, I used to like the price of this product, around $23. Right now, they increased to $33.95 across the board. Not just Vitaminshoppe but everywhere else has the same price. I guess we have to start to get used to the new price (I still hope they can decrease the price a bit). So please don't blame Vitaminshoppe for that, call Carlson or email to them instead. Overall, I like this product especially the lemon flavor. EPA and DHA are high in compare with some other fish oil products.

                                                                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jan 8, 2015

Sunlight will oxidize it, thus the dark bottle. Oxidation spoils any health benefits. My fish oil only becomes thick when it is nearing the end of the bottle. I just shake it up and transfer it to a new bottle when there is space.

                                                                  Fish Oil is usually taken for "Omega 3" effects. Cod Liver Oil is often taken for its "Vitamin D". I think Carlson removes Vitamin D from their fish oil because some people were concerned about taking too much "Vitamin D". So, you might consider taking some of each. Because of taste, Cod liver Oil may be harder to take and cause more after effects than Carlson's fish oil.
                                                                  Reply (1) · Report · Robert B. D on Jan 28, 2014

This fish oil is the best I have ever found. Buy the lemon flavor. I have Sjogren's, which is an autoimmune disease that begins by damaging all the exocrine glands. After taking this fish oil daily for about 1 week, I started making some saliva and tears again. It has been a godsend! Enjoy.
