Best Cod Liver Oil Ever
by Trenda

I highly recommend this product it is very good for you and my kids love taking it right from the spoon. Awesome!!!

No fish taste at all
by Carrie

My sister-in-law recommended taking liquid cod liver oil - mercury free. She went to a medical conference and that is what the medical profession recommended for joint pain (just one of the benefits). My husband ran out and bought some. I bought the cheapest brand I could find. It was awful. I had to hold my nose when swallowing and chase it with orange juice. I have to say, I didn't notice any benefits. Next bottle I bought was Barlean's - it was fabulous! There is absolutely no fishy smell or taste. Trust me...the other brand was foul! My knee is even starting to feel better after just one week. I would highly recommend this product. I fear that the others who wrote about a fishy taste/smell must not have refrigerated it. I bought a bottle for my mother, who refused to ingest any until I experienced a positive result, as she had dreadful childhood memories of being forced to take it as well. She swallowed it without a chaser because no fishy taste, just a pleasant lemon flavor. If my stubborn mother can take it without a problem, anyone me!

Excellent product
by Glinda

I'm a 20 year veteran of the natural products industry and Barlean's is one of the best. I think the fishy taste is minimal, there is an oxygen guard dispenser on the cap so that the bottle doesn't fill up with oxygen as the product empties, and the lemony flavor is very pleasant. I've never had a fishy batch of Barleans and if I got one i would return it. Sometimes shipments sit out of refrigeration for awhile and this would impair the quality. I'm on my second bottle now and I will continue to use it.

Tastes Great!
by Andy

Not sure what some of the other reviewers are talking about. Barlean's Fresh Catch Cod Liver Oil and other fish oil products taste great! They're infused w/ all-natural lemon and orange flavors making it delightful to take.
Are you sure you're talking about the same thing here?

Decent Product
by Robert

Besides obvious awful taste, it seems to be an effective product and offers you fatty acids that you can't get naturally from other meats. It is worth it if you can stomach the smell.

Good for you
by Brian

My mother force-fed cod liver oil to me as a child. So I admit that I was predisposed to hating it for much of my life, but when I woke up to nutrition as an adult and realized that Omega-3 fatty acids are key to heart health, I started taking it again, and this is one of the brands I’ve tried. The stuff still tastes awful, but it’s good for you.

by Lana

My doctor recommended taking some fish oil before one of the major surgeries I was having. I came across the Fresh Catch Cod Liver Oil at my local food store and decided to give it a try since it seemed to claim premium quality in an extremely balanced complex. I took one teaspoon a day for three weeks before giving up on this product because the taste was getting unbearable to take. The aftertaste seemed to linger for hours and I was actually feeling sick to my stomach toward the end of my use. I would not recommend this product to those consumers who are naturally sensitive to fishy taste. Barleans has made it difficult to get past the initial stage due to taste in order to properly evaluate its potential positive effects.

Fish Oil Liquid
by Michael Barcellos

Good for you! I like the liquid delivery system as it is absorbed faster and the fish taste doesn't come back later like with capsules.

by Robert

Barleans makes good products. I use this religiously. Hard to say more because fish oil is fish oil--tastes bad but great for you.
