Find Out If It’s Ok To Break Open Fish Oil Pills And How To Get The Very Best

Written by admin on April 30th, 2011

Especially when it comes to children, I am often asked, is it ok to break open fish oil pills and will it lessen their effects. Read on to find the answer and what to look for in a quality oil to get all the benefits.

Well the answer to the question, is it ok to break open fish oil pills is a resounding yes but once you’ve opened it you need to check if it is a quality oil or not. If not you will receive little or no benefits.

If you or your children are unable to swallow large pills like these, then simply pierce the capsule and pour into your morning drink or even onto food is fine and will not result in any less benefits. It is a good idea to consume the drink or food straight away and not leave it for too long though.

So now you have opened it, you need to smell the oil. You should only get a faint ocean aroma and nothing more or it means the oil is rancid or stale.

 Many companies use an enteric coating or flavorings to disguise poor quality oil so be aware of this.

A pure oil should not make you smell or give you those unpleasant fishy burps that so often put people off from using them. The one I personally use is so pure the company guarantees no repeating or I get my money back!

As well as the taste you should check the oil has been distilled to remove all the toxins like arsenic and mercury as traces of these have been found in many oils and cancel out any benefits you may receive.

The health benefits of a quality omega 3 fish oil are simply amazing and backed up by decades of research. They include prevention of heart attacks and strokes, treatment for arthritis, improved vision and the slowing or halting of age related eye disease, better brain health and cognitive awareness and many more.

Lastly just ensure you have around 250mg of DHA per 1000mg capsule as these fatty acids will give you most of the benefits. Many products have more of the less useful EPA so check the label to find out.

Now you know that it is ok to break open fish oil pills without losing any of their effectiveness, why not make a point to include them in your daily routine and protect your health now and in the future too.
