    Health Notes

    Fish Oil & Cod Liver Oil (EPA & DHA)

    Fish Oil & Cod Liver Oil (EPA & DHA)
    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

          Comments about GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil:

          This product is a supplement that should be helping us balance out the bad oils in our food... However after reading the label I found that this actual contains one of the worst oils you can have... SUNFLOWER OIL!!!... why?

          Insanely high in PUFAs with little to no Omega-3s to balance them out, sunflower seed oil is a pretty bad choice for sauteeing, baking, roasting, and even salad making. Trouble is it's everywhere, and it has a reputation for being healthy.

          Sunflower Oil
          10% SFA Saturated fatty acids
          19% MUFA Monounsaturated fatty acids
          63% PUFA Polyunsaturated fatty acids (OMEGA 6) this is why we take Omega 3 to balance this out... Why would it be in this!

          There are plenty of other oils that would work as filler... Which I'm guessing is why it's in this...

          Come on GNC ... pull it together! I like many of your other products don't let me down... change this please!

            My 8 yr old autistic son started taking this a month ago. We didn't mention it to his school teachers but during a parent/teacher conference, they told us that his attention has increased greatly in the past couple weeks. He's able to express his thoughts a lot clearer now too. His conversation skills also have improved.
            At first he didn't love the taste, but now he asks for his fish oil if I forget to give it to him! He calls it his smart vitamins!

              Comments about GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil:

              A word to the wise, ALWAYS take this supplement mixed with something else. I read the first review and was perplexed, I had never really tasted the taste of this supplement, as I mix it with my morning protein drink. Then the other day I took it by itself, because I was in a hurry, and I understand where that comment came from, it was pretty icky. This is a great product- I have to take liquids, as I recently had gastric bypass surgery. I was shocked when my good cholesterol numbers came back at a 41 (40 is the cutoff), I have always had stellar numbers. I have been taking this for about a month, had my labs done again, back up in the 100s where it should be. Not immediate results, as I would like it higher, but definitely better than what they were. Though it is not cheap, there is 45 servings in a bottle, so it will last a month and a half before you have to go back to get another. I have a Dr that also takes this, makes me feel a little better if a Dr is willing to take it as well.

                    My 11 year old takes this mixed with juice and my prima donna 9 year old daughter would rather drink it right off the spoon so it can't be ALL that bad. She says it hardly tastes like anything. You do have to be careful because the smell does stay in your dish washer or dish rag for a while. Bottom line, the benefits you get far outweigh the taste and if you don't like the liquid form, take the soft gels.

                        Comments about GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil:

                        This is the worst tasting stuff. I contemplated eating the dog food I had out on the counter after I tried it, because the dog food would have had to taste better than this. When I open the lid, often a little bit of product will fling out. If it gets on my clothes, I get this oily spot on them that doesn't wash out. I've had this happen to 2 of my shirts, and they're ruined. I was using some really expensive fish oil brand my Dr. recommended, and I am going back to it ASAP, because it didn't give me awful fish burps like this does. I don't have one good thing to say about this product, and hope other people stay away from it.
