How to Tell if Your Fish Oil Supplements are Really Fish Oil

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 4

There are tons of different makers of Fish Oil supplements. Which one do you choose. There are many Fish Oil Supplements on the market that are actually not really as pure and full of fish oil as the makers would like you to believe. There are many different fish oil supplements that you can buy in your local grocery store. These supplements are considered grocery grade supplements that are mass produced are are usually not as good as a pharmacutical grade fish oil supplement. So check the ingredients and see how many fillers are used and what they are. A good fish oil supplement should have mostly, you guessed it , fish oil. If you are going to take a fish oil supplement then you want to get the best one on the market. There is an overwhelming array of companies making fish oil supplements. I'm not a doctor or scientist but I have taken a few different fish oil supplements in my day. Some fish oil supplements made me belch quite a bit and I could taste fish. Not my idea of a good fish oil supplement. I don't want to taste that. But there is a sure fire way to tell if the fish oil supplement you are taking is the real deal or just one with a tiny bit of fish oil and then chock full of fillers. Freeze one of your pills. Oil does not freeze.

Things You Will Need

This is a simple method to discover if what you are taking is truly fish oil or just a lot of fillers. Take one of your pills and place it in your freezer. You don't have to put it in a container of any kind, just stick it in a corner of your freezer, out of the way so it won't fall out when you are getting something out. Leave it in there for at least 2 weeks. You can check it every few days, the more filler in the pill the faster it will freeze. Because most fish oil supplements have at least a bit of fish oil in them the freezing process will take some time because we all know oil does not freeze. The quicker it freezes the less fish oil is in the supplement. A friend of mine was taking fish oil supplements and I told her about this little test. She put her pill in the freezer and within 2 weeks her pill was frozen solid. She was upset to say the least. She wanted to know what she was paying for. Fillers. I take a fish oil supplement from Herbalife. I have a pill in my freezer and its been there for 4 months. And its still not frozen in any way. And it doesn't make me belch, I have never tasted fish and I have been taking this particular supplement for over a year.

That is a good test. I have never heard of it. I wonder if we can use the same test for evening primrose oil.
