    I don't know if it's weird; I actually like the taste of fish oil and the capsule. Anyone does it?

    Never tried it, but I do love raw sashimi.

    Someone told me that now fish oil capsules have been debunked and that only fish oil fresh from the source, actually eating fish, is beneficial.

    True?

    I haven't read anything about that, but also haven't looked into it.

    Maybe I will...someday...but until then I'll just continue eating raw fish regularly and not worry about some oil pill thingy.

    Chewing them is definitely a highly unusual source of pleasure. The reason they are coated, is so that one can ingest them without tasting the contents. In fact the better ones are labeled "enteric coated," to mean they are coated in such a way, that they are supposed to remain intact until after they have passed through the stomach, so as not to produce a fish oil taste if/when one belches.

    Recent studies indicate that fish oil supplements aren't as effective as eating actual fish.

    So…what studies? Usually whole foods trump supplements anyway, so how MUCH more ineffective are fish oil supplements? Surely more effective than NO fish, which is good since so many folk don't like/can't afford/find inconvenient fish?

    I don't really like the smell; but In general, I like fat. Whenever I eat fat, I get this satisfying and sensational taste esp pork belly and fish. But, I can't eat much tho as it makes me feel sick. May be it's just ma thang. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Btw, I do like garlics. I eat them raw to add a kick of spice with other meals and add them to my cookings to add smell.

    In my patients who I have followed in primary care and prescribed fish oil have had excellent results. And yes even the most recent studies show that fish oil capsules are effective. Also flax seed capsules are good. Basically your looking for the Omega 3 content.

    I've read similar reports (not any original peer-reviewed studies, which I likely wouldn't be able to comprehend anyway,) that omega-3, and many other dietary things taken as supplements, are less effective in pill form compared to being consumed in foods in their naturally occurring state.

    BTW, a common misconception is that omega-3 is unique to fish. It's actually contained in other food sources, a rich one being walnuts. I like walnuts anyway, so I keep them unshelled in a kitchen bowl, for munching all day long. Shelled walnuts are convenient but more expensive, and I always find they have a slightly stale taste.
