Hi connect,

Hey John,

Thanks for the link.  How can you tell that the capsules are gelatin-free?  I can't seem to find a listing for what the capsule is made of.  I know Carlson's are made with gelatin..........This A can't have any gelatin!

Hi connect,

the directions on the bottle of cod liver oil specify it is to be taken WITH a meal.  So having it encapsulated doesn't yield any benefits imho.  Just add a single teaspoon to a smoothie ... adding a tablespoon of granular/powder lecithin would help ...

if you wish to know the composition of their capsules ... ask them.

I was having a conversation last night with one of our other dear BTDers, and we were discussing whether Cod Liver Oil or Fish Oil is best.  My ND wants me to start taking Cod Liver Oil caps.  I'm interested to hear other's opinions.

I think it depends somewhat on what you are taking the oil for. For O nonnies I believe Cod liver oil is an avoid so any fish oil would probably be a better option. Usually Cod liver oil is sold as a source of Vitamins A and D but its also possible that a source of Omega 3 oils is intended.

If you took Cod liver oil for the A and D you would not take a multivitamin at the same time to avoid doubling up on the nutrients. Also the term 'fish oil' is rather vague - what oil and what for? Personally I think Cod when I think fish oil and am not very aware of what other products would be available.

Possibly there are other oils available just for Omega 3's without the A and D which would be a better choice.

Cod Liver Oil is neutral for type O secretors, but is an avoid for type O non-secretors.

I am a cancer patient with some cholesterol problems and arthritis in mild form.

I have been recommended Fish Oil, can this be taken safely with cancer ?

Thanks for your comments

Yes Fish oil can be taken with cancer and will help lower inflammation levels tremendously.  Blackmores is a very good brand for many supplements.  Are you in Austrailia?  Taz?

sorry, almost forgot,

You may wish to look into green lipped mussel extract (from NZ) for both an anti-cancer and anti-arthritis effect.  It has a high proportion of ETA as opposed to fish oil's EPA which is ???? in cancer.  EPA connected with sulphur has a much better chance http://www.shokos.com/essential-fatty-acids-E.F.A.S.htm
