Not All Omega-3 Supplements Are Alike featured image

Omega-3 is astounding stuff. These fatty acids purportedly improve the condition of hair, skin and nails, reduce inflammation, prevent disease, and much more. When eating fish doesn’t appeal to you, a supplement is a great alternative. However, because the FDA doesn’t regulate supplements, it’s completely possible to find yourself with a low-quality omega-3 supplement.

According to a report by KXAS, an NBC affiliate in Texas, lower-quality omega-3 supplements can cause unpleasant-though not dangerous-side-effects. These include poor-tasting burps and even a fishy smell in your skin.

High-quality fish oil will not freeze or become slushy if put in the freezer for several hours. If you drain a capsule and put it on a non-paper plate in the freezer and it stays liquid or evaporates, you can consider it high-quality.

Don’t have time to do the experiment? One omega-3 supplement you can trust to be superior is N.V. Perricone M.D. Omega-3.
