Better Tasting Fish Oil

Wednesday, 09 November 2011 03:01 PM EST

A leading supplement manufacturer has come up with a way to make taking omega-3 fish oil a little more palatable and pleasant than swallowing those huge gel tablets -- an orange-flavored powder that mixes with water.
The powder, being marketed by Nordic Naturals, is called Omega-3 Effervescent and, according to clinical trials, enters the blood stream in as little as 15 minutes. That’s good news for people who suffer from poor digestion or simply hate the taste of fish oil.
It’s also good news for parents who may have had difficulty in the past getting their children to take fish oil supplements in any form.
Omega-3 Effervescent contains cod liver oil and vitamin D-3, both considered to be crucial to maintaining heart, brain, joint, and bone health. According to a news release on the product from Nordic Naturals, when mixed with water the powder turns into a beverage that’s “clean on the palate” and leaves no aftertaste of fish.
“Sweetened with stevia in creamy orange flavor, the product tastes so great you’ll never know you're taking fish oil,” the release says.
The product, which the company describes as a “ revolutionary delivery system” for fish oil, has already garnered the 2011 Best of Supplements Award from Better Nutrition magazine.
