Fish Oil Capsules for older folks

artloversplusartloversplus 8564 replies250 threadsRegistered User Senior Member
Is there a substaintial health advantage to take it? I start to take it few months ago because I thought I did not eat enough fish and by taking it, I can supplement my short coming. However, DW kept on telling me I have a strang body odour that I never have before. I thought about that, the only new action was I started to take fish oil capsules, so I stop it for few days, the odour got less intense right away.
What gives?

    Costco's tinned Season sardines are fabulous. As is Costco salmon.

    If artlover's wife hates the fish oil BO, I guarantee she will toss him out of the house if he opens a can of sardines. ;)

    My H switched to krill oil. Easier to swallow and I don’t smell it. His cardiologist recommended taking it, I wonder if he shouldn’t

    ^^^ Sardine Can smells aweful, but fresh sardines are really taste without the smell.

    New York Times July 1 had an article on common practices and beliefs debunked by studies. One was:

    "Fish oil does not reduce the risk of heart disease.

    At one point, the notion that fish fats prevented heart trouble did seem logical. People whose diets contain a lot of fatty fish seem to have a lower incidence of heart disease. Fatty fish contains omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 supplements lower levels of triglycerides, and high levels of triglycerides are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Not to mention that omega-3 fatty acids seem to reduce inflammation, a key feature of heart attacks.

    But in a trial involving 12,500 people at risk for heart trouble, daily omega-3 supplements did not protect against heart disease."

    I don't have much idea about fish oil because I have never taken that.
