    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.

      Lemon flavor is wonderful Shake the bottle first. I take a tablespoon a day. Has helped to reduce my cholesterol by about 12%. Finest product on the market and it doesn't have that fishy aftertaste. Liquid version is easier to digest. Highly recommend.

          But -- this product has no taste when new, but two of us use it daily and it starts to go bad and deteriorated taste before it is gone and has particles settled out at the bottom.

            You have to come up with some better packaging for the cod liver and fish oil. Previously a shipped package arrived damaged with fish oil all over everything. Recently a new shipment arrived with the bottle caps dented and ready to fail. Bubble wrap alone is not sufficient. It may or may not surprise you to know that I have ordered this product from other vendors who use a box mailer designed to protect the bottle.

                  Can use on it's own, although I'm not fond of swallowing oil by itself. You are to take it with food, and works superb mixed in with smoothies, protein drinks, oatmeal, etc. Mixes extremely well. There is absolutely no fish taste. In fact, it is tasteless, and I have a sensitive sense of taste. I highly recommend this product.

                    We find this fish oil tasteless so not a problem to take in the morning with breakfast.

                    Delivery was very very fast.
                    We keep it in the refrigerator, so when it gets low, you have to let it warm a bit to get the last drops out.
                    There is a plastic pour spout to help it not drip, but still does drip a little.

                              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!!!
