Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels Not What They Claim

Pros:May have helped with my blood counts

Cons:Huge pills, fish burps

The Bottom Line: Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels are not odorless! Try another brand if you want to take fish oil.


I know I should eat more fish, but I just don't like it. It's the texture that gets me, so I'll save you the trouble of giving me your favorite recipe where you "swear I won't taste the fish." My doctor suggested that fish oil capsules, full of that oh so good for you Omega-3 fatty acid, might be good to add to my regular vitamin. After lots of research my husband chose Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels for us.

What You Get
Omega-3 fatty acid is purported to help with triglyceride and cholersterol levels. Two soft gels contain 25 calories, 2.5g of fat, 25 mg cholesterol and 2g protein. They also provide 2400 mg fish oil concentrate, 360 mg Omega 3 (EPA) and 288 mg Omega 3 (DHA). The recommended dosage is one or two softgels two times a day with a meal. The pills are enormous, much larger than an ordinary vitamin and the softgel coating is slightly sticky as it goes down my throat.

My Experience
At my last physical my triglycerides and LDL cholesterol were slightly elevated, not so much that my doctor wanted to put me on prescription medication but high enough that she wanted me to work on lowering them. I recently started working with a personal trainer and following a strict eating program. Along with that I've been taking two Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels a day, one at breakfast and one at dinner, for about 3 months. The results? My triglycerides are back to within normal range and my LDL is in the "near optimal" range. I would have to guess that the exercise and diet changes have as much to do with my improved blood work as the fish oil.

I will continue to exercise, eat right and take fish oil capsules, just not Nature Made Fish Oil Softgels. Personally, I did not agree with their "odorless" claim. The capsules repeated on me for at least an hour after I took them and reminded me of bad tuna fish. The thick coating on these softgels is supposed to ensure they dissolve in your intestines to avoid the "fish burps." They didn't work that way for me, I tasted them every time.

Final Thoughts
Although Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels may have helped improve my blood work, it may be the exercise and improved eating. Still, I plan to continue to take fish oil softegels just in case. I just won't be taking Nature Made Odorless Fish Oil Softgels again since I didn't find them "odorless" as they claimed. I definitely did not like the smell of repeating tuna in the morning.
