Are Your Omega-3 Supplements Quality Or Junk?

Researchers said Wednesday that even a low dose of omega-3 fatty acids
can lower blood pressure.

But is your supplement giving you those great perks?

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids. They’re found in cold-water fish
like salmon, mackerel, halibut and sardines.

Studies found omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the chances of dying from
heart disease, joint tenderness, bad cholesterol, menstrual cramps,
colon cancer and prostate cancer. They may also improve blood
pressure, mood, acne and asthma.

People who don’t like fish can take a supplement, although some can
leave with unpleasant side effects.

“There’s unpleasant burping. People would almost have a fishy taste
all the time and their skin might actually smell bad,” Dr. David
Becker said.

The Food and Drug Administration doesn’t regulate supplements, so
consumers don’t know what they’re really getting.

Becker told NBC News that he has a simple test that can be done at home.

The test is not scientific. It’s what he calls the “poor man’s way” to
test omega-3s.

Take a fish oil capsule, puncture it with a pin and drain it on a
solid plate, not paper. Put it in the freezer for at least five hours.
If the oil freezes or turns to slush, the doctor said it’s probably junk.

“If, on the other, it’s either liquid or it evaporates, you’ve got
high-quality fish oil, and I’d recommend you stay with it,” Becker said.

The doctor said to look for pharmaceutical grade supplements, which
have most of the contaminants, such as mercury, removed. Also, look
for DHA and EPA listed in the ingredients.

People can also ask a doctor for prescription omega-3s, but they are
more expensive than the over-the-counter variety.

If the pills smell really fishy, put them in the fridge to quell the
smell.
