After learning how important omega-3’s are I realized that I was not consuming nearly enough of them. So I went on a quest to find an omega-3 supplement. This was no easy task. First, you need to make sure that any omega-3 supplement that uses fish oil is pure. Usually, if this is the case the product will have some notation saying that the product has been tested by a third-party and is guaranteed to be free of harmful environmental contaminants. I had become hopeless, however, that I would ever find a product that satisfied my other two requirements. It must taste good going down and not come back up in any way, shape, or form! HA! A common problem with these supplements is you end up burping them up for hours–and the flavor is fish.
One day, after many failed attempts, I decided to give it one last try. I was shopping at the Organic Market and asked the helpful lady in the supplement department if she knew of any omega-3 supplement containing DHA and EPA (which usually translates into fish oil) that had good flavor and would NOT stick to the palate.
She led me to the refrigerated items and pulled out a bottle of the Barlean’s Key Lime Omega Swirl. She promised that it would taste delicious and would not revisit my mouth seconds or even hours later. (I was impressed by the fact that she opened a bottle of this liquid gold to allow me to sample it before investing the $30 that it would cost.) I tasted it and was immediately hooked. I would characterize its consistency as very smooth, in between a pudding and a smoothie. The flavor is simply delicious with not even a hint of fishy taste and best of all I am thrilled to report that after using this product for months it has not once revisited my mouth after being swallowed!! YEAH!! I am also happy to report that while tasting delicious it is sugar-free, as it is sweetened with xylitol, and certified by a third-party to be pure.
My opinion – I love it, and so does my husband!!
