We originally got this on recommendation from our daughter's Naturopathic Doctor for her autism. The kids actually like the flavor (no kidding)! My 8yo can read but doesn't realize she is taking fish oil since the label reads "Cod Liver Oil", LOL! It is oily, of course so the texture is a bit off, but I must admit the flavor is acceptable. It does not taste or smell fishy. And we do not burp it up later like we did with pills. I don't recommend mixing this with anything since it is very oily. It is great for kids that cannot swallow pills yet. It is the best fish oil we have tried so far (this makes #3).

Trying to do good for our bodies, we ordered this fish oil. But we would have been better to start with capsules. From the reviews, this product is probably great for non-first timers. I think I could have gotten used to it, but my husband and kids could not get over the "blech" factor of swallowing oil. And I did find myself tasting the odd lemony aftertaste for several hours after taking it. There was something disconcerting about it -- ALMOST pleasant aftertaste but actually NOT pleasant.

    I cannot swallow capsules and this has been a great alternative for a dry eye product (capsule) on the market. Packaging was outstanding - very well wrapped and protected.

      Comments about Carlson The Very Finest Fish Oil Omega-3's DHA & EPA, Lemon, 16.9 fl oz:

      Fish oil is good source of essential fatty acids (EFA) in forms of OMEGA-3 , good for lowering blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Fish oil is highly unsaturated fatty acids and it's highly susceptible to be oxidized (rancid) . Any rancid oil is associated with free-radical damages possibly leading to cancer, accelerated aging, Alzheimer's etc. Make sure your fish oil has added antioxidant Vit. E (tocopherols) to prevent / minimize oxidation. A sure sign of rancid fish oil is strong fishy smell when you open the capsule. Carlson's fish oil seems to have highest quality and no fishy after taste. HIghly recommended!!!

        Comments about Carlson The Very Finest Fish Oil Omega-3's DHA & EPA, Lemon, 16.9 fl oz:

        I purchased this because my "good" cholesterol level was too low and I'm hoping to improve that. I've only been using it for a few weeks and have not tested my cholesterol since.

        The taste isn't bad but it's definitely oil. The first few times I took it, I felt like I was taking a dose of Pledge. I've gotten used to it and it's not as bad anymore.

        I did notice a positive side effect. I am a runner and my knees usually hurt for about the first mile of my run. For about the past week, they haven't really been hurting much at all! That's a huge plus for me.

          Comments about Carlson The Very Finest Fish Oil Omega-3's DHA & EPA, Lemon, 16.9 fl oz:

          I have been/will be taking 1 tablespoon daily for 6 weeks as part of a nutritional program/recommmendation. I was VERY resistant at first to the idea of ingesting straight fish oil (ewww!), but Carlson's is amazingly easy to ingest... all I can taste is lemon! I've read of some people stirring it into a glass of water and drinking it (I have no tried that way).

          There are no "not so greats" that I am aware of; Carlson's has NO fishy aftertaste, actually... I've not noticed ANY aftertaste at all.

            Both my wife and I use this product once daily in the AM. It does seem to help the joints after using this product for several weeks.Can;t say what long term use wlii be like....But according to my doctors ,they only have good things to say about this type of fish oil.So i'am hopping long term use woun't do us any harm...
