Some fish oil supplements on the market contain only small amounts of EPA or DHA—sometimes the label specs do not match the actual potency. In order to make sure you are getting the best from your fish oil supplement, choose a supplement which is of pharmaceutical grade and is manufactured by a reputed company. This will ensure that you are getting what is on the label. It will also ensure that you are getting a fish oil that has the highest purity and potency of EPA and DHA. Fish oil supplements may cause mild indigestion in some people and leave a fishy taste in the mouth. Supplements like Triple Strength Omega have an enteric coating. The enteric coating inhibits digestion in the stomach so that digestion takes place further down in the intestines – this helps avoids the fishy after-burps.
