    Can I break open my fish oil capsules and drink it?

    I have some fish oil capsules that are way too big for me to swallow. Can i break them open and drink them or will they not have the same effect?

    yes, if you can manage to break them

    Try poking a pin in them and squeezing the oil out (srs)
    PES

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    That sounds absolutely disgusting. Suck it up and learn how to take a pill.

    Some people literally can't swallow pills. So "sucking it up" isn't an option for them.

    It's actually highly recommended, as it increases absorption greatly. It's especially effective when combined with pulverized liver tabs and mixed into a paste, for an anabolic treat, or when mixed with icariin powder and allowed to sit in a bolus under the tongue for sublingual absorption.heheheh

    I would recommend you not try this.

    I've broken one in my mouth before and it was pretty damn disgusting. It was the fishiest taste I've ever experienced. It was almost as bad as when I was ****ing around and chewed a vitamin C.

    some capsules are harder than others to open, the NOW brand feels like it has a kevlar coating or some **** around it. I was curious enough one day to try an experiment to test the potency of the oil (google: fish oil styrofoam test), and I had to cut open the capsule, and it was still difficult with a god damn steak knife.

    Wink

    It shouldn't be fishy tasting and smelling btw... that's a sign of rancid fish oil... Same thing can be said for fish you buy at the store... fish oil is highly sensitive to oxidation and if not processed and formulated properly you might actually be ingesting rancid oil.

    I've done this with the AOR Omega Natal fish oil I use and it tastes pretty good actually... well not great, but good for fish oil. Omega Natal is an excellent fish oil.

    If it's the gag reflex that is hindering you from swallowing these pills:

    put your left thumb in your palm (similar to the expression "I got your nose" you may do to children) and squeeze it as you swallow. It inhibits the reflex.

    I have a hard time swallowing pills too. Narrow esophogus. This is sort of off topic, but if you're looking for a multi, Orange Triad is actually really easy to swallow for it's size. I don't know what they coat it with, but if you let it sit for a couple seconds with water in your mouth, it gets slippery and goes down easy.

    I recommend Nordic Naturals liquid. You don't taste anything but the lemon flavor.

    I think "sucking it up" IS an option, then. lol

    Sounds horrible! I used to really have a hard time taking pills. You can get better with practice for sure...

    yes i use to split all the big pills. now it's fairly easy. worst for me was when I had to take 5 huge creatine pills after working out. throat constricting as I'm still cooling down and panting a bit. 2 out of 5 went down harsh every time lol

    now i just use the powder creatine in my protein shake after working out. cheaper and easier to take

    i'm adding flax oil pills to my supps this week. sure hope they dont give me these nasty burps i hear of. though i'm vegan so i guess it's better than tasting fish all day.

    avoid the enterically coated then. No reason to delay digestion until past the stomach if you are breaking the cap.

    I used to not be able to swallow pills when I was younger. After patience and practice, I finally got it down. It just takes some getting used to.

    Most of my supps now are in the pill form (Animal Pak, Pump, and Nitro) and I have no problem swallowing them down.

    ahh yeah intelligent response...do you realise that some people literally choke on them as they have a narrow oesophagus?!!! So people like myself can't just suck it up and "learn" to swallow a pill as it will literally get stuck in my throat and cause great discomfort, retching and vomiting.

    What? Man vitamin C tabs taste awesome. I always chew them up just for the taste. srs. Got a nice sour tart taste to them.

    What is worst is chewing dexaprine pills. Talk about the worst taste ever.

    Not all fish oil is the same. Often with medicine and sups the outer coating is added so that only once the tablet reaches a certain part of the digestive cycle will the enzymes break the coating and allow the body to absorb the supp/medicine there. Fish oil is pretty safe but in general consult a GP

    I have a hard time taking pills, capsules, tablets and what not as well. I either chew them up or break open the capsules and chase with water. Its very nasty at first but you eventually get used to it. I found that chasing with water then quickly drinking a small amount of hershey syrup right out of the bottle to mask the taste works great. Just dont go crazy and drink a whole bottle of hershey syrup

    My question to everyone though is, does breaking the capsules open and chasing with water diminish the effects of the pill? Cause I do that with all my pills
    For example Opti-Men I just chew it up and swallow with water.

    i take the NOW brand, are they EE or tri?
